A Blogger Meeting.

I had my first blogger meet today!

I guess I'm not as anonomous as I was... but I'm ok with that.

After much time playing meeting tag.. I officially met Wendy from Wendy's Tiki Hut today. She lives super close to me and it took months for our schedules to coordinate.

We met over at Burger King.. I recognized her immediately when she walked in. It was strange, I felt like I had known her for a long time even though that was the first time we were meeting. She brought me a little dashboard hula girl and made me a Hawaiian music cd which I thought was super sweet of her.

We chatted, then the kids all played on the giant jungle gym at BK. Punkin climbed up into the thing and I went up after her. I never felt so big in my life( I hit my head twice) and I was surprised no one came in at yelled at me to get out of the jungle gym.

Then we walked over to the Firestone which is across the street from the BK. They have the official Firestone/Budweiser Indy Race car there in the lot. You were able to get in and have your picture taken in the car FOR FREE (so rare these days). We all did that.. it was super fun. I totally though the MPs were going to realize I was sitting in a race car and give me a ticket because I LOOKED like I was going to fast,LOL. Maybe Wendy will post her pics.

We had a good time, Wendy is awesome and her kids are great. Sydney took great care wheeling the punkin around in her stroller. Hopefully we'll be able to meet up again soon.

It's good to have a cool new friend.

The only blogger I've met was Teflon Don of Acute Politics, but at the time we met I didn't know what a blog was or that he was one of the best!

He was just another soldier who happened to be coming through R&R and was a really nice guy.

Memories!! All alone in the moonlight!

Okay, I'll stop singing now...

You are so cute! Sorry to break your anonymity (is that the word?)

It was fun to hang out with a grown up!

Where's your race car photo?
