Fun Surprises!

Well over the weekend I got a SURPRISE visit from one of my long time blog friends Shameka!!

She just happened to be in the area and made sure we connected! :o) I was so delighted b/c we have been chit chatting about anything and everything for awhile now. So it is always great to meet someone you've been having an e-friendship with Haha!

Of course we had to go out and eat!! Went to my fav sushi restaurant in the area where she was visiting fam.
Yep had to get some pineapple martinees with the sushi..Hey! It was a Friday night ;o)

I believe I started reading Shameka's blog first and noticed she was in the knit world with other bloggers I followed like Rosi G. and Jeanine...luv them gurls!!! So it was kinda like I was meeting them indirectly too (well in my mind at least! Haha)...Heeeeeey y'all! :oD

We had a great time chit chatting had our tempura mango dessert and then of course we whipped out our knitting (well...I was hookin' it up! Haha)Shameka's sock bug may have bit me so I can see another pair in my future again very soon! ;op
My granny square blankie has been addictive in that it is so mindless that I can't get enough of it. More crochet blankies are definitely in my future.

Shameka gurl thanks for connecting with me while you were in the rainy QC! Hoping you make your way back when we have better weather!!
Really wish you were still here so we could hit the yarn shop! Hopefully next time!!

And another SURPRISE is up as those who read my last blog b-day post in its entirety realized I had a hidden contest! :o)

There was four lucky folks who entered and Heather (check out her Shallowtail) was the name that shuffled out from the Randomizer and won herself some

Congrats!! Be sure to pick out which color you would like to try out for yourself!

Happy that you are willing to explore different types of yarn ;o)

That is all for now,

Make it a great week with purpose!!

    Stacey, I had an awesome time meeting up with you. It was so wonderful to see you in person and put a voice to the bubbly personality that exudes over email. There will definately be another visit in my future. I am looking forward to checking out Charlotte Yarns. We can have a Pineapple Martini anytime. It was awesome.

    You look like you're having such a great time! Pineapple martinis, those sound absolutely wonderful. I'm more of a vegetarian sushi kinda girl, but those martinis... No wonder you're both smiling.
