do you remember that i told you i went on another girl date with a fellow blogger? well, i just remembered that i forgot to tell you about it. a few months ago, the other mama and i went on a little outing. you can read about it here. and for enduring our double post about it (and for being mean and making you comment on both blogs b/c we are comment whores like that) we gave away a gift card to PF Changs. Kera won that gift card. she said she would save it until i could go with her. how awesome is that?? i'd walk through fire for some PFs. ok, well, maybe not walk through fire. but definitely step on a match with my flip flops on. well, we decided that we needed to get together. i had also comissioned her to make a shirt for my precious little angel for her first birthday. go ahead, drool over it. it's ok. she'll make you one.
so we HAD to get together. she had a class to take (which i'm still waiting to hear about) so we decided we'd meet for brunch at a local little diner place. let me start by saying this. you know i like to primp for my girls, right? i think i made that clear in my previous girl post. we were supposed to meet at 10 AM. it takes me 20 minutes to get where we were meeting. YALL....I DIDN'T WAIT UP UNTIL 9!!! NINE!!! you do the math. i mean 40 minutes?? and that included needing to shave and get good hair. the good news...is that i had an excuse for not worrying on the hair. it had been a monsoon in the huntsville area, so i had humidity to blame. check. i made it right at 10, scored us a table and started looking over the menu. soooooo hard to decide. she had the western omlette with home fries (and water, cause that cancels out those home fries) and i had the best french toast i have EVAH had. i still dream about it. it was 3 pieces of cinnamon and brown sugar goodness. thankfully i thought ahead and had water too. otherwise, that would have been a close one. and at least i also operate on the theory that when you are enjoying Christian fellowship, everything is fat free. cause i'll tell you, had it not been the first time i had actually met kera, i probably would have licked my plate. it was that good. (side note, kera grew up at church with my hubby. that is how we originally "know" each other. i have a really funny story to tell her one day, but my hubs forbade me from telling it here.) anyway, i'll tell you that she stole my heart when she offered me hand sanitizer before we ate. hillary, she knocked you off of your throne for now. sorry love. (yall remember hillary asked me if i liked/shopped at NY & co? precious.) kera and i talked about our hubbies, our babies, and plenty of other things that you can only say to certain people. we knew immediately that we are those certain people. even if we DO know each other's extended families. that makes it all the better!! i do have my "Clairee" moments when "if you don't have anything nice to say about someone, come sit by me." i own it. i'm not proud. but it happens. we had to make ourselves quit talking. we have already decided that when she comes out to see her mama (which is where we are moving), we may take our babies out to the cry room at the first peep they make so we can catch up. cause that's how to keep it real as Christian wives and mamas. you know...role models. that's us!! thanks, Kera! it was super fun and i can't wait to do it again!! who wants to go with me next?
