When I started blogging, I had no real expectations other than advertising about my product and getting the word out there about SheShe Made. Eventually I started blogging here and there about our personal lives because I thought it would be more fun for my customers to get to know me more than just a lady who designs and makes their child's clothing.
Along the way, in just one year, I have made many friends, through my customers and through the blog and twitter world. It has been such a cool experience and I especially love meeting my customers or blog buds, especially since I don't have a "brick and mortar" type of shop.
sidenote: To those few customers that have come to my home to pick up items...I apologize for the sometimes scary sight you've seen in all my non-makeup glory!
This weekend, while visiting my family in Houston, I had the privilege of meeting another blog bud, Heather. Heather was the third person I've had a sit-down meet up with and every time it is hairy with MY CHILD! Ava was in a really crabby mood and I was just really nervous it was going to get ugly.
But she was so-so acting. And we actually did get to chat for a while. I tuned Ava's 4,953 demands out and enjoyed getting to know Heather better. And did I mention she brought along the ever adorable miss Mollie Kate?!?! Oh my! She was so sweet. Just like her momma!
The girls hugging while eating lunch.
These two older ladies came up to our table and just flipped over the girls. They asked a thousand questions about them. If they were sisters, best friends, if they were having a special celebration, etc. because they looked like little dolls out to eat. Haha!
Houston humidity did a number on my hair. Sort of looks like a drowned rat! UGH!! Or maybe I look so yuck standing next to these beautiful ladies...all 3 of them!
We tried to take a pic of the girls after lunch, and they were both so tired and beyond ready for nap time. What can we say? Heather and I both like to talk!
Check out the series of events...
I wish the girls would have had more time to "play" together. They seemed so much alike! Ava has been asking about "Mah-wee" the past few days and she even says "Bwess Mah-wee" in her prayer lineup. It is the cutest thing! If only Heather lived closer.
Thanks for meeting us, Heather. You are such a doll and EXACTLY as I pictured you would be in person. You light up the room with your smile and bubbly personality. If you guys make it to Dallas later this month I hope we can meet up again!
