Meeting a Blog Friend

This past Thursday, I met Arlene from Nanaland in Pensacola for lunch. Arlene visits Gulf Shores from North Alabama each year. This year we decided to meet halfway in Pensacola.

I actually don't even remember how I found Arlene's blog, but I am so glad I did. Her blog is the kind of blog I love...real life and sharing those things you love.

We have a lot in common and we are hoping to do this again. I have seen on other blogs where people meet, but I figured I would be too chicken to ever do that. It was definitely stepping out of my comfort zone, but worth it.

I had been so busy that I didn't do anything creative or come bearing gifts and as I was driving over I figured Arlene would show me up. She did! She came bearing birthday gifts that were so perfect.

An Auburn bracelet! and she is a bama fan. Friendship and families go way beyond the biggest rivalry in the country.

Cute bracelet huh?! I wore it Saturday to pull Auburn through for a victory over LSU. 
Feeling sorry for Les Miles though.

Arlene also gave me some of the most precious gift cards. She has definitely paid attention to me on my blog. They are so me. The bicycle with flowers and verse is me to a T.

I have several things to share this week, so we will see if I can sit long enough to do just that.
some fall decor...
some thoughts on blogging...
my awesome new pie safe made by a very good friend...
getting my mojo back for the farm house...
and oh yes, stitching update.

Counting my blessings,

  1. Sandy, I am already looking forward to next year and us meeting up with Leslie Anne in Fairhope. I really was not too nervous about meeting you because I felt I really knew you from your blog. So glad that the bracelet worked for Auburn on Saturday.:) what a game!! Unfortunately Tech got trounced by Clemson but hey, Georgia got trounced too so that made it better!! I have almost finished my Prairie Schooler Let it Snow. I hope to get to the cross stitch store this week to get some material for my Prairie Schooler nativity. And I might have ordered three more patterns from 123 Cross Stitch. I am trying to get all the PS patterns I can before they stop printing them. Off to get my massage while poor Marvin has to go to work!! I have a rough life.:)


I am so glad you stopped by my little blog. Drop in again anytime.
