So Much to Tell!! (free frame & glue stick)

The Arizona blog meet up was a SUCCESS!!! I had so much fun with all of these lovely ladies!! I have to admit that it is a little strange meeting someone you have only met person for the first time... I had butterflies the entire drive to The Cheesecake Factory in Phoenix. 
I agreed to meet up with Linda Kamp from Around the Kampfire an hour early & when I arrived she was sitting at the bar drinking a cocktail & I knew we would be great friends (-;

Me & Linda
Before I walked into the CF, actually, before I even parked...I ran right into a yellow cement pole while turning into the parking area!!!!! What did I might ask?? Well, I made sure NO ONE WAS LOOKING of course!!!! I was so glad the small group of police officers were already out of sight. I checked around and saw no witnesses...because, you know - the most important thing right after you run into something is not to check out the damage...but to act like you're not the idiot that just hit a cement pole turning in because you should be sitting on a booster seat...HAHAHA 
My shortness often blinds me...but this will be the first for me-running into something while driving a car.
Yes, I have tripped, dropped things, accidentally called my bank (M&I) MIA, and walked around a school campus with my skirt tucked into my thong  panties...(YES, I SAID THONG)!! A bunch of high school kids saw my rear end & the boys seemed to really like me...but luckily I was still in high school and my rear end was not so bad, but my ego will be forever traumatized...LOL! I did the same then as I did when I ran into the pole...looked at everyone as if they were the wackos!! hahaha
After I parked (now, completely afraid to drive) I assessed the damages...HOLY BLOGGER!!!! I won't scare you with the details, but I will say that it was pretty bad. 

Onto the AZ Blog Meet-up...Look as us lovely ladies...I will call us the Teaching-Cat Dolls (Mostly because I do not like that P word that rhymes with...hmmm...what does it rhyme with).

Left to right:
Nichole, Sandra, ME, Jennifer, & Linda... Where the heck was Teresa ???
Good (well, okay) food, great conversation & Excellent Company!! Thank you ladies for such a fun afternoon!! I will have to add blog links later (my ipad is dead). 

One of the waiters took this, but I don't think he heard me when I said, "Don't make me look fat!" I don't know what his issue is, but he widened my hips (how dare he) and gave us all scary eyes!! Maybe he felt we were competition, considering our awesome fuzzy mustaches we were rockin'. You did't hear this from me, but Jennifer almost did NOT rock a mustache...I guess she didn't want to embarrass her unborn child...hahaha...Mine are in 5th and 10th grade...the perfect time to take any opportunities to embarrass my kids...LOL...JK...
Nicole & Sandra sporting their mob staches...LOL
Sandra & Teresa!!! Aren't they just lovely!!!
This post is a bit short considering I have not posted for a few days, but I have surprises in store for tomorrow!! Go visit these lovely AZ blogs (-;

    Crisscross Applesauce in First Grade

    1. Thank you!! I am really good about not stressing about the small things. I look at my glass half full: No one was watching, the pole can't identify me, the damages were actually easily fixed, and I didn't hit another car or a person....I think I have a lot to be thankful for...hehehe.


  2. I totally understand the whole height issue... challenge...whatever...I am five foot one. Sorry about the pole, obviously it jumped out at you!
    Meet me at the zoo…

    1. Yes, Barb!! That pole just came out of nowhere...I am thinking of counter-suing for the damages...hahaha... We are about the same height!!


  3. Once, I was going to trade my car in and hit a pole in the car lot parking lot. It happens, it must be a short people thing.
    Thanks for the freebies!!
