...I met my first blogging friend in person.

Oh, the harassment I've given her about this place, that I get to go frequently and she doesn't.

Today we met there and had lunch and then shopped. She brought her daughters Laura and Heather. Hubby drove me, had lunch with us, piddled around down the road, and then came back for me.

I had a great time getting to know Mari a little more in person and meeting her daughters. Mari was just as nice as I thought she'd be.

I turned out to be the rebel in the bunch.

Mari has blackmail material on me now too.

Good thing she's such a nice person and would never dream of using it.

Glad you two finally got to meet in person. She and I work together and she has been looking forward to this weekend.

It was so much fun! It was wonderful to meet you and Robert too. Can you believe that we ended up going back there this morning? After we looked through the catalog, we decided to make a short stop on the way home. We got back around 4 this afternoon.
PS - thanks for the notebook. I love the cover! In the chaos of leaving the store, I never thanked you. What a neat idea.
PPS - I'm hanging on to the blackmail material for later. You never know when you may need something like that. ;)
