Ladies Who Lunch
Today I had lunch with two of my favorite girls EVER – Robyn and Jenny. You may know them as 3 Girls Mom and Jenny Hope. We were way overdue for some face time so we picked a restaurant in a midpoint between their town and mine and got down to the business of catching up.
I know that the dern devil was trying to keep me from my girls because I got lost not once but stinkin’ TWICE going somewhere I’ve been a dozen times. Luke is normally the one driving so obviously I’ve not been very observant about how we got there. After I finally made it, I was SO excited to meet the famous daughters Camille, Tait, and Morgan. Something about meeting your bloggy friends’ families makes the relationship more legit. I just felt bad because my girl couldn’t be there (pesky school attendance policy) and doubly bad that I was the only one who didn’t think of bringing a treat to the girls.
Leave it to Robyn, the Queen of the Camp Trunk, to bring a cutesy decorated lunch sacks filled with goodies to keep the little people occupied. I seriously started to photograph them but even though I full well intended on blogging about our getting together, I wanted to concentrate on talking, talking, talking. Maybe when you stop taking pictures of every move you make when you hang out is also an indicator that you’ve moved passed the Imaginary Friend stage.
And indeed, these girls are for real.
Just because I didn’t make pictures of chips, salsa, and Jenny dosing her drink with Miralax doesn’t mean we didn’t take any at all. Here is a sampling. I love you girls and miss you already!!! Now that we know how easily we can get to each other, it is no longer acceptable to not see each other often and frequently.
Or in other words, a lot.
Me and Robyn. My face is doing a weird, Joan River-ish thing but please take note of my Believing God bracelet. Also, I apparently only own one jacket because I’ve been wearing the same one in every picture of me in the last four posts.
The Three Amigos.
The Three Musketeers.
So I’m curious, have you jumped out of the computer into the real lives of any of your imaginary friends? I highly recommend it.
The only one lately was my lunch with Donna @ WayMoreHomemade…SO fun. Glad y’all had such a good time…I so would’ve loved to be there!
For one thing, I live in the Pacific Northwest and there are very few people I’ve “met” in bloggy land that hail from the land of evergreens, beavers and spuds. That, and I met my ex-husband online and it was disasterous (hence “ex”). I’m a little gun shy. Plus, anonymity is safe on so many levels… I went to the Siesta Fiesta and it was… difficult. I don’t want a repeat performance. =)
you are hilarious! I think you are so super beautiful!! I wish we could have hung out longer. I thought you looked so cute in that jacket. LOL about my miralax situation. I was having dinner tonight with a precious precious woman who has probably seen me in all my glory at the OBGYN but she is in my bible study. I pulled out my second dose of Miralax on her at dinner.
Looks and sounds like you guys had alot of fun! Where do you all live?
The only time I’ve met people from Blog Land is at She Speaks. *sigh* I wish there were more times!
So, I’m curious. Does “Just because I didn’t make pictures of chips, salsa, and Jenny dosing her drink with Miralax doesn’t mean we didn’t take any at all.” mean that you did, in fact, take pictures? Or Miralax?
And yes, I’ve ventured out to meet all of one of my blogger friends. Local, of course. It was great meeting her and has been wonderful getting to know her.
I also had an unexpected meeting at Beth Moore in New Orleans this past April. Boo Mama and Big Mama were there. That was an added bonus to the Conference.
So where would you say the half way point for us would be? I’m next to Baton Rouge. Let’s get on it and find us a meeting spot. ;)
I’ll bring a camera. You can bring the Miralax. Just in case.
Ahh, don’t y’all all look cute! Why am I not with you…. oh wait, that’s right I’m on vacation with my man! If not, I would’ve been right in the thick of this thing!
I have had a few bloggy (I first wrote blobby…. but that’s totally wrong) friends become REAL friends. In fact, the two you met with and YOU are among my Bloggy / Real friends. And I have a few more.
The Lord has sent me so many blessings through Bloggy land.
And I am SO THERE for the next gathering of the girls….. but I have no children to contribute… well, I could bring my grownup girl or my almost grown girl. But one has that whole working thing and the other deals with that school thing….
Love you Lisa and love your cute jacket!
I love love love meeting my blogging friends in real life. I even went and spent a week with seven of them in Savannah a couple years ago. What a blessing!!
Looks like you had fun!!
