New Friends

I met some new friends today.  That doesn't happen very often.

But in Blogger land friends are made without ever having a face-to-face meeting.  When the chance presents itself to meet those 'friends' it's hard to resist the opportunity.

I learned awhile ago that one of my blogger friends lives in Surprise, AZ, and another one lives in Peoria.  Today we got together and I met Jo and Holly, who had already met one another several months ago.

It was scary.  I don't make friends easily and tend to hold back when I meet new people.  But today's meet went very well - Jo and Holly are fun and funny  and our lunch get-together lasted for three hours.

Our first stop was Paradise Bakery Cafe

Holly, Jo, Pat
 Then we went on a hunt for 4th of July paraphernalia. There was none at Pier 1 so we went over to Michaels where the girls found some stuff but not exactly what they wanted.

Jo and Holly
 Then Holly found some red, white and blue streamer headbands and we all ended up buying one.

Holly and Jo
 So we all put them on and Holly insisted that we wear them through Target.  We got lots of stares but the little kids we passed liked them.

Me, Holly and Jo
It was a good time.  Thanks, ladies, for the fun outing.  We'll have to do it again next time.

It was a great day! It was so fun getting to meet you and I'm really looking forward to next time. We are totally rocking those headbands!

I am so glad that you got to meet some fellow bloggers - I have done that myself and we have become great friends.

just call me jo said...

Pat, your version is so "mild" and sane. I certainly don't remember that...;o) I had a great time. Be sure you let us know when you're in town again. Surprise!! Have fun. The hockey fans in Van Couver went a bit overboard last night, didn't they?

Pat you are a BRAVE WOMAN.

I've only 'met' those two crazy ladies through their blogs (like you) but never in person. Now I am looking at YOUR photos and 'take' on the day.

Personally, if I ever meet them in the flesh, I'll be happy that you let me in on their antics and sillyness.

LOL and I'm laughing outloud!

Looks like a great day! Even with those thing-ies on your heads!

Looks like a wonderful time was had by all! Love the headbands! Nothing better than making new friends!
And yes Vancouver 'hoodlums' went wave overboard! Not hockey fans! But you should have seen all the hockey fans downtown this morning cleaning up the streets til they were spotless! Wonderful, and only hope that hits the news.
