Lisa Earns Her Keep And Says Good Bye!

The middle of the week with my best bloggy friend Lisa went something like this.
I forced her to help me cook and make pumpkin spice lattes, while wearing my chocolate themed aprons that I happen to win from her giveaways.(It wasn't rigged I promise! LOL)
I twisted her arm to entertain my children. 
And entertain she did.
This is her playing Mario Kart with my boys. (She doesn't play Mario Kart!)
She has great form but.....

....not to much skill. LOL!
She's in the bottom left hand side, not on the road and in 12th place, which happens to be last place! LOL!

I'm hoping she's playing War here with my boys and not teaching them Poker. HA!

Because she was such a good sport I decided that she needed a day out down town. So my BFF Kathy, Lisa and I went and walked the shops, sampled some fudge and had a nice lunch. Then for the first time she tried Chocolate Covered Potato Chips!!
I think she liked them because she bought some to take home!

By the end of the day we were all tuckered out!

The end of the week consisted of a game night, lots of laughter and silly faces!

It was so sad to see her go but hopefully she will be able to come back again!
Love you Lisa!

Have you ever entertained a bloggy friend?


Tomorrow I must share a personal aging experience. So stay tuned!



  1. You guys had way too much fun:-)

  2. So much fun!! Love the faces!!

    Love you my friend!!

  3. LOL! Love your faces! Priceless! :)

    I can't say that I have ever entertained a bloggy friend of yet....

  4. What fun filled days, and no, I have not yet entertained a bloggy friend that I met from blogging. I have a dear friend who blogs but I didn't meet her from blogging. Chocolate covered potato chips, yikes!

  5. G'day, Kim ~ What a lovely time you all had ... isn't it wonderful to have your friends to enjoy?

    Have a great day ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  6. Yum! Chocolate coverd potato chips...LOVE them! :) :) :)
    Lisa looks quite at home in your kitchen with the flour and bowl, so cute! :)

  7. Looks like you had a lot of fun - thanks for taking us along!

  8. I'm so glad that you had a good time! How on earth do you twist your face like that??? LOL! I've met a couple of internet buddies and it was quite fun! Haven't met a fellow blogger yet, but I will someday!

  9. It was ALL fun my friend!! Glad I could earn my keep a little - LOL! I had fun playing games with your sweet kiddos - even though I am TERRIBLE at Mario Kart!! :)

    Big didn't-know-I-needed-weird-face-making-and-Mario-Kart-racing-skillz-to-hang-out-with-you size hugs to you!! Have a wonderful evening my friend! I am very tired today, but have to attend a boy scout meeting tonight w/ the kiddo 'cause hubs has a different meeting to attend. I know - it's a tough life and I'm sure you're shedding a tear for me right now - HA!! Love you!! :)

  10. I want to try the pumpkin spice lattes!

  11. In person bloggy friends are definitely "more real" than virtual ones! ( ;

  12. So much fun you all had! The pics are adorable and I am soo glad you made a video too!! She is so blessed meeting both, YOU & KATHY!! Someday I hope that is ME :)

  13. So FUN! I met a blogging friend who lives just a couple of hours away and surprisingly, we grew up only a few towns away from each other...but several years apart...mine being the most significant of the several years :o Anyway, we met up with our kids who are similar in age and got to know each other using "spoken out loud" words instead of typed words. It was great!
    Thanks for sharing your visit with the rest of your blogging buddies.
    Peace and blessings to your day!


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
