I "met: Amy about a year ago...maybe longer than that, it escapes me. She's relatively new to the blogging world but she read mine for a while before she started one of her own. We instantly clicked and have been email/phone/text friends for a while now. We kinda always knew we would meet somehow, somewhere...but then I moved and life got crazier and our plans of meeting looked grim. But a couple months ago, Amy was all, "Hey, what if I just came to YOU in NC?"
Me: Seriously!?! Are you serious!?!
She was seriously serious.
She's flying here RIGHT NOW! Can you believe that!?! Would you be that brave? Would you fly across the country for a blog friend you'd never met? Amy's pretty awesome.
I'm sure all her friends in Montana think she's nuts. I'm sure her husband is praying right now that I'm not the "cat lady" or a witch or a killer. It's weird to meet through blogging, but it works even if non-bloggies don't get it.
I have been so excited for this long weekend for a long time. I have plans for us, but we might just decide to throw all those plans out the window and park it by the pool and talk the whole time ;) I'm planning on showing her Asheville, the mountains, where I live, downtown...all that good stuff. I seriously cannot wait till 3:45.
Yesterday I was busy. I cleaned the bathrooms, washed sheets, made cinnamon rolls, wiped the Cheeto-prints off the doors. You know, the big stuff.
I want to make her feel special. I want her to feel like she's staying at a high end hotel, with personalized gifts waiting for her. I sewed her up a big ol' beach bag quick and added a "Montana" to it. I sewed up a matching little bag for make-up or whatever to go with. The mug I made from a tutorial I found here. There's candy because I'm pretty sure she has the sweetest sweet tooth ever and I didn't want her to have sugar withdrawals.
So I think most of us know how stinkin' awesome this blog world can be, but seriously?? Wow. Seriously...it's pretty awesome.
So I'll be sitting here reading blogs and twiddling my thumbs till 3:45. Have a great weekend...I know I'm going to!
