What did I do this past weekend you ask? Well, I'm glad you did 'cause I'm dying to tell y'all. In fact, I have R rated photos to prove what trouble Cat Daddy and I got into!
Y'all know how much I love blogging and I think I've made it pretty clear how much I love THIS particular blogger. I would crawl across broken glass just to get a hug from HER! Imagine my joy at finding out Jodie was going to be in the Rowlett area for a retreat AND since Rowlett is only a hop, skip and a jump from the Casita de Trash AND being the good little stalker that I am....
You betcha! I high tailed it over there first thing Friday morning during her break. (You know I love this girl if I'm willing to drive myself to see her!) BUT...hang onto your girdles...it gets better! A certain someone else had flown into New Orleans and drove down with Jodie for the same retreat. This certain someone is a blogger I've dreamed of meeting since the first time we exchanged comments.
Be still my heart...Pam had came to the mountain! I can't begin to describe to y'all what it's like to meet someone I've pictured in my head a thousand times while reading her posts and comments. Can I just say she was that and so much more? It was like being reunited with a childhood friend who had moved away. Perhaps that's the beauty of blogging or perhaps it's kindred souls connecting. Whatever it is...meeting her was magic...pure magic! There was no shyness or awkward moments...just one big, long hug with a few tears thrown in for good measure...especially when the afternoon was over!
And the cherry on top? Sweet Sarah was there too! I was given the opportunity to meet her when I crashed, I mean dropped by the Paper Cowgirls retreat. I'm telling y'all...this chubby lady was in pure heaven for five way too short hours!
I can hear you asking where are the blackmail photos. Keep your britches on...I'm getting there. I just want to bask in the memory of a wonderful afternoon if you don't mind!
Not one to miss a photo op OR the chance for smooches from someone other than his ever-lovin'...guess who snuck into the restaurant behind Jodie's back?
I swear up and down...that man is starting to believe his own press and you girls sure aren't helping matters much starting with you Sarah! Lord love a duck...he truly believes he's catnip to the ladies...as if!
He loves his Crazy Cajun just as much as I do...maybe more! Nah...that just ain't possible! Look at that baby face (not his...hers!)...what's not to love?
Pam...I promise not to tell Receipts what you were up to while in town...pinky swear! Oh and girl...my rule of thumb for deciding on how much bling to wear? If I can't see you from across a field...you need more and Sugar...I saw you from across the lobby and up the stairs. Verdict? Fab U Lous! (Love my watch...you know me so well or maybe great minds just think alike!)
After Cat Daddy made his exit, we sat, talked, laughed, ate, laughed some more and just enjoyed the being...you know what I mean? Sadly, the afternoon was over way too soon and we were hugging one last time.
To all of y'all who blog...if you get the opportunity to meet someone you've only talked to through the screen...grab it and hang on tight. I did and I wouldn't trade Friday (or my girls) for all the rhinestones in Texas!
