Guess what? I had the opportunity to spend a weekend with Darcy from Life with my 3 Boybarians! Here's how it happened...
I was planning a weekend get-a-way to do some scrapbooking and get some much needed R&R. I asked a few other homeschool blogger friends whom I've yet to meet IRL if they would like to fly to Texas and join me - never thinking in a million years that anyone would really be able to do it. It was just a dream. :)
But guess what, Darcy could!!! So this past Thursday I went to pick her up at the airport and we spent the entire weekend at a friend's lake house. It was wonderful! If you've ever read Darcy's blog you already know she is a complete hoot. In person she is even more wonderful than her blog depicts. She is witty, kind, thoughtful, a great conversationalist and an even better listener (she had to be with all my non-stop chatting!). We talked and talked and talked some more. We scrapped a little here and there, too.
Thanks Darcy for coming to my neck of the woods and putting up with me for three whole days! Thanks also to my wonderful dh and Darcy's Handy Man for watching our collective six boys so we could have a weekend off. I am already looking forward to doing it again and dragging more of our homeschool partners in crime to Texas next spring! :)
Here's a photo we took with Darcy, me and one of her good friends, Jaclyn. Jaclyn and I only live about 30 minutes apart in the fourth largest city in the nation (Insert Disney song, "It's a small world after all! It's a small world after all!....) She and her family drove up to spend the afternoon with Darcy and I was the lucky recipient of some great fellowship,too. If you want to see some of the cutest kids ever, pop over to her blog, Our Phamily Tree, and take a look! Jaclyn, it was wonderful to meet you.
What an amazing place the internet is! If someone would have told me a year ago that I would spend a weekend with someone I had only met in cyber-space I might have told them they were crazy! I am so thankful I was wrong about that one. :)
Want to know one more thing I was wrong about? Well I am going to tell you anyway. ;) Peanut butter really can be that good! Ever since I read Darcy's PB Loco post I have been skeptical that any peanut butter can be that tasty. Trust me, it is! Thanks Darcy for starting my new addiction. I am sucking on a spoonful of the yummy stuff right now as I type this.
