If I were 100 lbs lighter and 1 foot taller we could totally be sisters!

Awwww my sweet Megan visiting with me and my girls when she was in town for the Girls Getaway! A promise is a promise and I have been promising her since she left that I would get these pictures to her, posting them here is a step in the right direction isn't it?

I met Megan when both of us were asked to join Boutique Eden over on Ebay. I instantly liked her from our IM conversations and when she asked me to collaborate with her I of course said yes. As time went on we talked often on the computer as well as the phone and when she said she was going to come and visit last year I said "COME ON DOWN"...actually I probably said "COME ON UP" since I am geographically challenged and kept referring to Idaho as up when clearly on a map you can see that from where I live Idaho is down. Even my hubby kept saying "why do you keep telling her to come up?"

I remember how funny it was when she had booked her flight and plans were made and her husband started questioning her on what did she really know about this family that she was going to stay with! We made jokes back and forth about her disappearing, tied up in the basement while my husband went all "Silence of the Lambs" doing the crazy he/she dance that the nut does in the movie! It cracked me up especially because we are so the opposite of anything anyone would fear, so I shot her off some pics of the house and the family (leaving out the pictures of the cage where she would be spending most of her free time mwaha ha ha ha ha).

It was like going to the airport to pick up an old friend, someone you had known since you were kids. My girls loved her, G kept calling her "Pegan" which made her feel cool and "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe-esque". We shopped and ate out and hung around and dished dirt and even rented the horribly insane "War of the Worlds" because Pegan was so lovely and didn't want my hubby to have to watch a chick flick. She was so wonderful she even let me pretend that Tom Cruise was Brad Pitt so that I could stomach having to sit through a Tom Cruise movie after swearing that lunatic off after he went nuts on The Today Show and Oprah!

I am so grateful for our friendship, she has stuck by me and been my friend despite the fact that I can be a flakey, forgetful, goonie, stressed out basket case! Sure she'll drop the occassional subtle hint, like "Geez your forgetful, flakey, stressed out, goon-like basketcase can't you remember what time we're meeting for Girls Getaway Weekend!" And I know I can just smile and say "Ummmmmm, can you email me the times again?" And while I will be able to hear her sigh all the way from Idaho she will send me the email....and that's what makes her a great friend!

I wish I could get over my fear of flying, well it's not so much flying as it is my fear of the plane exploding in mid air that keeps me from flying, I would go up and spend some time with her. We could shop and play and I could get to know her children the way she knows mine!

Maybe I will do that.....take some time off from photography and go have a little fun......what do you think Megan ? Do you think you would let me come and stay! You do know though if you say yes you will have to provide me with some documentation that you will not kidnap me and attempt to sell me off to the highest bidder in Hong Kong where I would be asked to work as a dancing girl who would then disappear and Stone Phillips would do an awesome Dateline story on me......interesting.....:)
