We were thrilled to welcome her in to our humble home.
I was especially excited to meet Yvette; I knew she was amazing in Blog Land, so I couldn't wait to see what she would be like in real life here in Crazyville.
Let me just say this, "She was wonderful!"
We piled up on my bed and talked for hours and hours. You would have thought that we had known each other our entire lives.
And it obviously goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway, "Allie loved her!"
And Yvette was so patient with Allie's overwhelming welcome. :)
I have not laughed so much in a long time. Yvette made bed rest seem like fun!
I got so tickled because she and Shannon are so much alike.
They say things in unison, and have many of the same "quirks" about them.
As Yvette was on bed rest with me she yawned quite a few times.
I told her every body does that when they come here.
So we've decided it is either one of two things.
1. We are the most boring family in the world, and manage to put all of our guests to sleep. Or...
2. We have such a comfortable, welcoming home that people are just so relaxed, and that is what causes them to yawn and/or fall asleep.
I like to think it is number 2, otherwise I get my feelings hurt.:)
Well, our visit came to an end too quickly for me.
I enjoyed Yvette's company so much.
She did a post yesterday about our visit. Click here to see it. :)
And I realize that she can't come to all of your houses, but you can all visit her on her blogs. I highly recommend you paying her a visit. She is so funny!
You can find her here:
The Boyd Family
Movies with Mom
Stop by one (or all three) of her blogs and say hello! You will not be disappointed.
Shannon took our picture together as she was getting ready to leave.
We took two. You know so each of us could have our best side showing.
It was sad to me when she left.
And Allie cried and cried at the door as she drove away.
Bed rest is much more fun with a friend. I've tried, but I can't make myself laugh as much as Yvette did.
Yvette, if you're reading this, thank you for coming all the way out to Crazyville to spend time with me and Allie. We enjoyed spending time with you so much. You are a very special lady.
As soon as I am given the all clear to get back behind the wheel of a car again, I will be coming to see you. Then we can put our two heads together and figure out our plans to
