So this picture isn't from way back but the friendship is. About a year and a half ago I started commenting on the blog Triple Blessings + One and she started commenting back. After a while we started exchanging e-mails - long ones too - almost books :) We found besides having triplets just 8 days apart we had a lot in common and we've been talking regularly ever since.
A few weeks ago Cadi said she had some vacation coming and thought she might come to Virginia - when I said the dates corresponded with my birthday weekend it was decided - she was coming here!
And today she is here. So cool to meet my long-distance blogging friend in person. It's fun to know that the people behind the blogs you read are real. You read our lives and I read so many others and we are real people! Imagine that.
So, what's a girl to do after getting off a plane? Go for a pedicure of course! Don't our toes look great :)
(Left - me with a French pedicure; Right - Cadi - don't you love the blue?)
Tomorrow - a haircut for Cadi and girl's night out to dinner. Friday - some girl shopping. Yes, she came halfway across the country to go shopping :) She will go home looking great!
But she didn't come alone - no, she didn't bring the triplets she brought her oldest daughter, Ashlyn (4).
Ashlyn's fitting right in - she even wanted to be my model for my Tightwads blog - how cute is she?
Even though I dread my birthday I am looking forward to it now since I can spend some time with my blogging friend and my family.
