In real life.
I am dorky and shy.
But blogging has made me think that it is totally normal to meet new people that I only have previously known from my safe little blog world.
Bethany is one of those people.
I really wish we were neighbors.
But she lives in the inferno called Arizona,
yet longs to be back in beautiful Kansas.
Her family came out to San Diego for vacation
and we planned a little park play date in the middle.
I'm not super familiar with San Diego county parks, so what did I do?
Ask another blogger of course!
Nicole had the perfect place in mind.
Right off the freeway and right on the beach.
So I picked the critters up from school and headed south.
I had to look somewhat cute, because HELLO! she is a blogger and photographer. A photo op was sure to occur. I wore my stolen Allora necklace and my borrowed yellow shoes all in a feigned attempt to mask the nerdy.
She dragged her kind and understanding husband along too.
All I have to say is, if my husband came to me like this:
"I'm going to a park to meet my Fantasy Football friend from Iowa.
Do you want to come and bring the kids?"
My answer would be:
That would be really, really weird."
But for some reason when I go do the same thing
it seems like the most normal thing in the world.
Our kids got along great.
The beach was beautiful.
Her husband is a really good sport.
My nerdiness was changed to awesomeness all thanks to my necklace.
Now I have a new friend in real life.
She even blogged about it here.
Who's going to rock there own version of Allora awesome?
Maybe you can come over, we can meet and
wear our matchy-matchy necklaces together!
