I think I needed some me time.. time to hash things out. Sometimes I pull a disappearing act when there is simply too much chaos going on. Chaos is - lots and lots of conversation. Remember, I live in a SUPER quiet house... but then I went home.. and discovered a world of families (including my friends..) with kids and people.. and questions.. and concern.. and love..
It was just too much emotion for me to handle. I don't process emotion quickly... so it was almost too much.
But all in all, I had a really great time. But before I go any further.. I wanted to reveal the winner of the two night stay in Florida. We only had 4 entries... and my little niece pulled a name.. and of course I had to read it to her.. and I am super happy to announce the winner is:
You got that right! ~ Leanne, From Chaos Comes Happiness. I started giggling, because she is just an awesome person and dear friend.
Thanks to everyone else who entered. Leanne, if I am not crazy, I should actually have your address in one of my emails - I will mail you the gift certificate in the morning. WITH your birthday gift (finally. LOL)
- Just to be safe - re email me if you don't mind!
Now for a little pictorial journey of my weekend:
Driving into Georgia.. the sun was rising..
The Tiny Tiger!
These stars are for good behavior!
Beware of this Tiny Tiger - she is an Orange Belt!
Visiting with an old friend from High School - Lisa.
Lisa, Leslie and me... all from the same neck of the woods.. ;-)
It was Phillip's Birthday- we gathered at my favorite Tex Mex hole in the wall - Polly's La Mesa.
Another friend from High School = Erica. We chatted it up at a new Yogurt Bar in Macon, GA.
Our other friend from school - Amanda, joined us!
Later I drove to the next city over - Warner Robins, and had dinner with Kaprial at Thai Pepper.
Telisa joined us - and I ended up spending the night at her house!
On the road again!
On Monday - I drove up to West Georgia - RockMart - and visited some friends from college. They have a 4 kids - this is their adorable little Maddie!
This is my dear friend Tania, we have known each other since we were freshmen in college. This is her son Alex, my God son!
This is my other God Son - Jacob!
Dale cooked a splendid dinner. They both met our first week of our freshmen year at Georgia College & State University in Milledgeville, GA. They've been together ever since!
This is Daniel.. their youngest, who chose to dress as Iron Man for me!
All in all, it was sooo nice to see old friends and relax. The interview back home went really well.. and I guess you could say.. it is a good plan B!
Here is a little more fun for you:
