Follow Friday – Leftover Candy

18 Feb

Last weekend I had the pleasure of meeting two online friends who just happened to be locals. I brought my camera but I was so distracted by talking and eating and listening to unbelievable mailman stories that I forgot to take any pictures. When you become a mother you have to accept the fact that your attention will be forever divided anyway. No matter what you are doing, if your kid is anywhere in the vicinity,  a large chunk of your brain will be devoted to Baby Alert. It’s automatic, and as far as I know, you’re unable to ever shut it off.

Ellen, who along with her husband Ivan, cooked us an amazing breakfast despite being very pregnant. Getting dressed and brushing your hair is an accomplishment in the late stages of pregnancy, so making a beautiful berry cake was all kinds of extra points. I should have at least gotten a picture of that amazing cake. It was beautiful. I also got to finally meet Laura, who I met through flickr sometime during my pregnancy.  We had such a great time, and I hope to see you guys again before the baby’s born.

Here’s to online friends.

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here. Learn more about it in my FAQ.
