Long Weekend

I can't seem to wrap my mind around the fact that the wedding I went to on Friday was actually part of this past weekend. It feels like...I don't know, I would estimate a million years have passed between then and now. Maybe that's because since the wedding we went shopping then grilled out with my sister and brother in law on Saturday, then on Sunday got in the car and headed to Nashville for an overnight trip to spend time with my sisters. Right. A million years worth of time crammed into three days.

You know what else I did in this million year weekend? I met my very first Internet friend in real life! How amazing is that? A few years ago I could have never imagined that I would have good enough friends online to be meeting them for drinks and desert in Nashville. But here we are...
me and suzy
Me and Suzy out for drinks! She is one of my sweet Braces Bunch girls and she is the best!

Her husband Ike came with her, and Boo came with me. My dad and I laughed that we were both bringing people so we wouldn't be kidnapped or killed. I did point out that it would be an extremely LONG CON* to fake infertility and blog about a fake family for five years just to finally get to the point where I could kidnap Suzy at a restaurant in Nashville! In reality, we just wanted our extra people there to enjoy the excitement of finally meeting in real life. We had such a great time and I can't wait to meet up with her again.

Last night we got home after ten and I promptly passed out. Henry had been long asleep after having a fun filled day with Nick. He went to bed four hours before his normal bed time, so we weren't exactly surprised when he decided to wake up all bright eyed and bushy tailed at...2:30am. And he stayed away until five. So...not the best start to this week. I am dead on my feet. But I just remembered tomorrow is already Wednesday, and my day off! Yay!!

Okay, this post is really rambling. I shouldn't blog when I am this tired. But I wanted to tell you I met sweet Suzy, and that I am hope safe and sound. And maybe I wanted to complain a little about my lack of sleep. Hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend too!

*I miss Lost.


  1. Sounds like a great weekend!

    Meeting people you met online rocks, though can be slightly scary too! I have met a group of people who used to be part of a spiritual forum I helped to run in my uni days. Meeting people from all over the UK, US, and someone from Australia and another from Switzerland all in one weekend was amazing! We've had meet-ups since, but that first was the biggest!

    Have I also mentioned I originally met Tim online? Through a local
    dating site (except I had moved towns when Tim saw my profile and decided to write). We got to know each other via email, then via the odd weekend together and suddenly one weekend the whole dynamic changed and the rest, as they say, is history! It just shows how positive the internet can be for helping likeminded people to meet each other, no matter the distance.

    Funnily, I forgot to tell you, I had a dream a few weeks ago that I came to the US and got to hang out with you and Boo and Missy. Not sure why I dreamt that, but it was cool and I was quite gutted to wake up and realise I hadn't been on such a fun adventure after all! (If I'm dreaming of bloggers I know, does this mean I spend too much of my time in the blogworld?)

  2. I had such a great time meeting you this weekend too!!!! And great minds think alike, because I blogged about it today too. :)

    Hope you get some much needed rest after your marathon weekend!

    Looking forward to having many more martini's together.


  3. So glad you all got to get together!

  4. I'm rather jealous of your getting to my Suzy ;-)

    Yea, I'd say it was a long-con too....sounds like something my mom would say.

  5. I'm glad I'm not the only one lost in space and time. I have had a hard time remembering what day it is all week, and remembered what events happened when over the past week.

    It is so much fun to meet blog friends, isn't it? I've met a few, and all of them met and exceeded my expectations. I would love to meet more of my bloggy friends.

    Here's to being lost in space and time!
