What if she thinks I am an idiot?
What if I say something dumb?
I almost always do so that one is huge risk!
What if we don't click in real life?
Or worse, what if she doesn't even want to meet me at ALL?
This week she was going solo as her hubby was out of town. I thought it would be a good week to jump in with both feet so we made the plan to meet this afternoon to enjoy a Starbucks together. We both have a Starbucks addiction and I was pretty sure that after a week of flying solo, she would need a LARGE cup ‘o Starbucks. Or a Tall or whatever the fancy name they have for them is….Oh and what exactly is a barista anyway?
Kamden and I headed over early as we needed to stop at a couple of stores first. We were looking for a winter jacket and ski pants for Jack but apparently the middle of winter is not a good time to shop for these items. We'll try back in July, we should have more luck. Consequently we arrived a few minutes early.
Naturally Kamden was hungry, it was an hour after lunch after all, so I splurged on a $3 cookie for him. He picked the one with the M&M’s in it. Shocking, I know.
Yeah, so it turns out you can’t judge a cookie by it’s M&M’s because he didn’t like the cookie and ended up only picking off the 4 M&M’s and eating those. $3 for 4 M&M’s, what a deal huh!
And then I picked myself up off the floor because, the kid? He’s never met a cookie he didn’t like, trust me!
Then I looked up and saw this cute little face in the line up.
Then the double stroller pushed forward and there she was!
We spent the next hour and half gabbing away while the munchkins played with Thomas in between asking us to read almost every book in the store! What is it with these kids anyway? Wanting to read books. I mean REALLY! How can we talk when we're reading, don't they understand. Oh right, so it's not really all about me. Still working on that one.
Of course we had to the do obligatory self portrait that all women bloggers are famous for. She had to take it though on account my inability to take a decent picture by myself! Thanks Anna, you did a great job.
Kamden did not want to be in the picture... so I took one of him anyway.... I'm a nice Mommy that way.
I had a great time, the time flew by and we didn't talk about half the things I had planned. And also, we are the same height. It's a rare occurrence for me to not be shorter than every other person on the planet! Power to those below 5' 4"!
I can't wait for the next visit. Next week work for you Anna?
