Meeting A Bloggy Friend

Wow! Is Thanksgiving break over already? I hope so because I just dropped Big Guy off at middle school. Both boys went back to school this morning in better moods than I expected. Little Guy woke up in a great mood, but he loves Monday at school since he has Pathways (gifted class) and art class after school. Big Guy wasn't doing cartwheels, but he was in a good mood. Maybe it was the fact that he has finished his projects that helped his attitude.

I am sitting here enjoying a cup of "Santa's Blend" coffee. It kind of seemed appropriate since we started Christmas decorating the house yesterday (more on that later).

Before I close out Thanksgiving I have to share one of the highlights of my Thanksgiving. It was getting to go Friday morning and meet Dr. Wifey. When I first started blogging I never realized that it would open the door to meet new friends. When Wifey told me she was coming home for Thanksgiving and asked if I wanted to meet, I didn't even hesitate, I said YES!

On the way to meet her I got caught up in traffic of a wreck which made me late which I hate. (Great, Deanna.) When I arrive, I found her in the children's department shopping with her Mom for books for her nephews. After looking for a few minutes, we go to the coffee shop. She insists on getting me a coffee and then I fail to thank her because I am enjoying chatting so much. (Great again, Deanna.) I so enjoyed chatting with Wife and her Mom. Wifey is just as sweet, friendly, and funny in person as she is on her blog. Now I really hope that she gets to move to Mississippi soon and next time I am buying the coffee!

Is it not AMAZING how we connect with people via this medium? If you had told me i was going to spend Thanksgiving with someone I met on a BLOG I would have laughed! But I ended up having one of the nicest thanksgivings ever!!!

Our daughter didn't want to get up today for school...I promised her that we would go to bed 1/2 hour earlier tonight to help her...maybe that will work.

I am so jealous that you got to meet Dr. Wifey...she seems so precious...I would love to meet some of these folks in bloggy-land.

Two of my favorite bloggy buddies together! waaaaaa

My husband went to Alabama this week, but I couldn't talk him into taking me. He had too much stuff to try and fit me and the midget and the wieners in the truck with him. dumb...

Just realized I had saved the wrong link to your blog, and didn't realized it had been updated. sorry :( I got the right link now, and linked to my blog so I don't misplace it.

What a fun, fun time you had! I've met some Bloggy Buddies who hail from my neck o' the woods, too...it really is a small world, made even smaller by Cyberspace. Hey, any chance of getting a photo or 2 of you posing in your Pop'rs Wear? If so, please send it to me at veggiemom@poprs.com - Thanks!
