What a fun day!

I meet SO many new people online and very rarely get to actually meet them IRL (in real life) so when the opportunity comes around to get to meet my "friends" for real I jump! Seriously, I talk to these gals DAILY, it feels like we've known each other forever, but in all actuality, we've never met. That's the hardest part about online friendships. Usually we live SO far away from one another it's impossible to meet, but every now and then, I mean once in a blue moon, I get to meet one of them!

That happened just this past Saturday! I got to meet Sara (Sassyat30) from SCS!!!! Woo Hoo!!! She was down this way to help her sister paint her new house. What a nice sister, to drive 6 hours just to help her paint! Well it worked out great for us :) We got a chance to meet for lunch and do a 'little' shopping. The only thing I wish was that we'd had more time to spend together! When you've talked online for months a couple of hours for lunch and shopping just isn't enough!

Danita (another "online friend" turned real life friend, HI Danita!) and I met Sara at her sisters and then we went to lunch at a really neat place. It used to be the newspaper building years ago and they turned it into a really cute little restaurant. During lunch Sara mentioned something about wanting to buy some Fabriano note cards but not really wanting to get them online. So I said that any "good" art store should have them. Danita told us there was a good art store on campus, so after lunch we went! Sara got her notecards and Danita and I got a few more Prismacolor pencils for our collections! (I only need 17 more to have all the SU matches! LOL)Unfortunately after that it was time to take Sara back to her sisters, I mean she was really there to help paint, not to go gallivanting around with us LOL!

We had a great time! It was like old friends meeting again after a long time! There was never a lull in the conversation, heck it was hard to talk sometimes cuz we're all talkers LOL! We are definitely going to have to figure a way to get together again! Here's a couple pictures from our get together! Sara is on the left, I'm in the middle(I wish someone would have told me I was eating my hair!) LOL, and Danita is on the right!

Oh, and Laura, I didn't *know* you were eating your hair. I'd've told ya! :)

Great picture!!! Danita's coming to visit me this weekend!! Plus I have to say that you two are the coolest, most fun gals I have met so far on SCS. ;) Had an awesome time in April and can't wait to see you in July!

Danielle said...

Sounds like you had a fun time! I know what you mean, some of my best friends are online that I have never meet! One day though....

Did you say PrismaColor Pencils that match SU colors?!?!?! Really?!?! Where have I been??!?! Do you have the info or know where I can get the info about which ones match?

Sara (sassyat30) said...

Yay! Look at us hotties! I had such a great time! We'll have to do it again sometime!

Glad you all stopped talking long enough to have your photo taken!!! Sounds like you had a blast!

Oh , Laura, I'm sooooooo jealous! I've met so many wonderful people on line and long to see them, not just their picture. Unless they come to Columbus, Ohio this will probably never happen because I am unable to travel. It sounds as though you, Sara, and Danita had a dream day...TFS.

Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
