when two worlds collide ...

I've met other bloggers before (and have a few meetups planned in the coming weeks). I mean, dude, my best friend is a blogger (OK, so maybe I knew her before her blog. Stop trying to catch me on a technicality.) Anyway, I've in the past few months I've gotten to meetup/run with MCM Mama, Shelly, MissZippy and of course, Katye.

Before Friday, all of my blogger encounters gave the other party a mere snapshot of my life. But now, Katye has been to a place few have seen. She was privy to the inner workings of my life and family and the pure chaos that encompasses my days. (And she didn't run away screaming ...)

We did a ton in the three days Katye spent with us and my girls took to her immediately (they were begging her to stay). During her visit, we made a trip to Busch Gardens and G's pool. We ran the street of Richmond and ate a lot of good food. And she even saw a tantrum or two thanks to my resident troublemaker, Doodle. It was a ton of fun and rather than bore you with all of the details, I will just share some of my favorite pictures from the weekend instead. Oh, and if you are wondering what Katye thought of her time with us and the craziness that is my life, check out her posts HERE and HERE.
You wish you had been here, don't you?
