EMZ and Caro

Today was a great day.
I met my DEAR Arizona Friend.  In person.
(Nobody was wearing heals)

Through our blogs we get to know people we follow and or people who follow us.  I think of some of you as my friends, even if I have never met you in person.  That's sounds silly to people who don't get to know others through the Internet but if you have a blog you get that, I am sure. 
This lady is one of a kindShe is like I knew she would be Sweet and kind and funny (see pics below for proof).  The only problem with this meeting was that it had to end.

She brought me some gifts....look: it made Maggie smile...only because she cannot read the word CAT all over the shirt

A lot of Arizona hearts and cats on the shirt....the letter A is nice but D is still better....:)

And for my boys...

I had a gift for her too, I will let her share that if she wants to. 
No no, not a Duke shirt.  I am way too scared to see what she would do to one of those!!!
But....I did come prepared for an intervention and make sure that EMZ gets a taste of the Duke Greatness.... I am a good friend I share the good stuff.  This is what her husband (PITA) said "Did you loose a bet?!!!" ha ha!!!





I would say that this intervention is clearly a success.. She IS Duke. I see great things happening in EMZ's future.  I have to say that she is a good sport.  Really.


No no she was not crying...or puking...she was overwhelmed with hmmmm JOY?!

EMZ, there are no words to express how happy I am that we got to see each other today. 
Thank you for stopping by on the way to Catalina to come and see me.
Thank you PITA!
Thank you poor Peanut who had to sit through all that non stop blah blah blah...!
I hope it does not take too long before we see each other again.  
Arizona is at the top of my destinations to go to list.  
I am so happy I got to meet your lovely family as well.   
EMZ & Caro: 26.2 in AZ.
That sounds like a good plan.
