Face To Face!

Hello, Dear Ones!
I'm so excited to tell you that yesterday
I met Linda from A La Carte

This is how I'm used to seeing her on her profile snap on her blog.

And...this is how I saw her yesterday!
FACE TO FACE ~ and hugging!
Linda and I have been blogging back and forth for about four years and I felt as if I already knew her but meeting her in person was just the cherry on top!

Linda's mother lives in Houston and we had planned to meet before but her mother's health wasn't good and Linda didn't want to leave her.
This time her mother was doing so much better and Linda drove down to Galveston!

Chloe Dawn wanted to get in on the snap too! :) Just look at that fat little tummy.
Oh, I fixed a little lunch for us and Mr. Precious joined us.
Now I must tell you something...don't always trust Pinterest.
I wanted to wow Linda with a delicious dessert 
and I found the recipe for the perfect cake on Pinterest.
It looked and sounded delicious.
Well, it was just awful and I was so ashamed.
Just be warned.
Linda was nice and ate a few bites but trust me, it was awful!
Just awful!!
Anyway...

I told Linda I was scrubbing toilets for her! :)
So in the little powder room downstairs I put together a little vignette.
Grabbed my little toolbox, poked in some greens, soap and a Bunny Foo Foo!

Now I warned Bunny Foo Foo to mind her manners and not stare when Linda entered the bathroom.

She promised me she did not look! :)

It was thrilling to meet Linda and she brought me a little gift ~
a darling tea towel, Rooster napkins and a little green vintage bowl filled with candy!
Thank you so much, Linda, for the gifts and the visit!

Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Thank You For Being A Friend 
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you knew
You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
and the card attached would say,
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend
Thank you for being a friend

If it's a car you lack
I'd surely buy you a cadillac
Whatever you need, anytime of the day or night

I'm not ashamed to say
I hope it always will stay this way
My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

And when we both get older
With walking canes and hair of gray
Have no fear, even though it's hard to hear
I will stand real close and say,
Thank you for being a friend

(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Let me tell you bout a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend

And when we die and float away
Into the night, the Milky Way
You'll hear me call, as we ascend
I'll see you there, then once again
Thank you for being a friend

Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
(I want to thank you)
Thank you for being a friend
Whoa, tell you about a friend
(Thank you right now, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna tell you right now, and tell you again)
Thank you for being a friend
(I wanna thank you, thank you, for being a friend)
Thank you for being a friend
