I'm IN THE PINK with a new friend....





Thanks to our BEVERLY for such a sweet PINK SATURDAY...

"FRIENDSHIP, FRIENDSHIP.....it's the perfect BLENDSHIP......"
Do you remember that old song ?
***
I had the pleasure of meeting a blogging buddy for lunch and a bit of shopping this week
and we had the most delightful time.
*
We met at the GRANNY KATZ TEA ROOM
in a local craft mall.....
I was so excited to meet her that I arrived about 15 minutes early...
"Would I recognize her from her picture on her blog?"
***
I KNEW HER IMMEDIATELY !!
Do you?
JANERA from MY GARDEN HAT !!
My brand new friend !!
Isn't she just precious....and that smile just melts your heart.
***



She was so sweet to bring me the best smelling, wonderful candle.......
PAPAYA PASSION .......
and I love it !!
Thanks so much, Janera.
***





My friend, MARTHA, joined us for the day..
so glad she and JANERA could meet...
We had the best lunch...
Chicken Salad with nuts and cranberries on a homemade roll,
seasoned crackers and fruit on a bed of lettuce...
and .....I didn't even THINK about taking a photo of the food until my very last bite.
*
*
Shopping in the craft mall ....
These little handmade baby dolls are the most realistic little things you've ever seen.
They are even fairly heavy to resemble a real baby....
**
Thanks, JANERA, for wearing a top with a bit of PINK.....;o)

***
A mock toast, ending a perfect day with a perfect new friend.
****
We never ran out of anything to say....
Blogging is so great in bringing people together that have never met and can
start right off as if they had been friends for a hundred years...
I love that about blogging !!
We plan to do this kind of day many times in the future !!
*************
Don't forget to go by BEVERLY'S
and leave sweet words for her and the players....
Thank you for stopping by here today.

Hi BJ! I hope you're having a wonderful Pink Saturday. It's so nice to see friends enjoying each other's company. It looks like you're a doll fan, too. That is a very realistic baby! Stop by if you get a chance.

I love meeting new friends and shopping too! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I know I haven't posted anything in awhile. All is well, I am just busy living life and taking care of the baby. Thanks for wondering about me. I come here daily. Just don't comment a lot. You are always so 'UP' like sunshine to me every morning. Thanks for being so sweet. I love to read your blog.

Would ya look at all of those roosters! I'll bet Blogland is babbling about them! Happy Pink Saturday.

♥Mimi♥ said...

I know I sound like a broken record but it's raining and cold again this weekend in Michigan. Summer, sadly, may never make it north so ♥Pink Saturday♥ is one of the bright spots in my day! Thanks so much for participating this week and giving me a little lift out of the clouds☺

Beverly said...

BJ, you both look like you had a fantastic time together. I smiled when I saw your picture surrounded by roosters. Of course, you know why that made me smile.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

How fun! I have not yet met any blogging friends, but have met many people that I have known from online, and it never fails that we all feel as if we have known each other for years. Amazing, isn't it? So glad you could meet your blogging friend!

Also, that restaurant looks so cute! I love the tablecloths, and I think I saw old windows hanging from the ceiling and a picket fence. Too cute!
