Bloggy Friendship Days Begin Today!!

What are Bloggy Friendship Days? It's an idea that two gals (Lisa and I) came up with because they saw themselves becoming fast friends and wanted to celebrate their friendship. Today is OUR chance to tell you, our friends, how much we value your friendship. BUT our actual "friendiversary" is on Saturday and that's when WE are going to talk about nothing but each other and our friendship and when YOU get to link up YOUR friendship post. How did we come up with that date? Well we went back into the archives of our comments and realized that we both had comments on each other's blogs on June 27 2008 and so set the day! But today I am going to talk about some other friendships that I've gained since blogging. Now this could get long and sentimental so bear with me!
First off let me tell you that those of you who regularly read my blog and in turn are "really" getting to know me, just bless me so much. I never in a million years would have thought that people would actually come back to my blog again and again. But you do and I'm so glad you enjoy my little piece of the blog world.
Some of you are new to my blog and I'm slowly trying to make my rounds and see what you all are all about. I like to "know" my readers and what's making them tick. It's been a bit scary at times! LOL. But then again I'm sure I attract that which I am, right? Right? So basically we are all nuts! But I'm okay with that and I hope you are too!
Wow, this is already getting long! Sorry about that. To make this not so short and a bit sweeter I am going to narrow down my "friends" list to those of you whom I've known for over 8 months and visit regularly.

Debra -Debra and Lisa are 2 people that I would talk about a lot to my family and one day my daughter asked why I don't get their phone numbers so I could "talk" to them? Yikes! That's like putting it all on the line and actually saying, "Hey I want to be your friend and actually communicate with you verbally." Yes that's a big step, but one I gladly took and they actually gave me their phone numbers and we have talked quite a few times now! Though no one is beating down my door to get MY phone number! Just kidding! I actually got to meet Debra, as we both live in Florida and only 2 hours away. We have been come fast friends. She is about as sweet as they come!! She's the only blogger friend that I've actually met in real life. Here's a picture of us when we went over to where she lives.Donna- This lady here is a sweet heart. She travels a lot with her husband and when I asked if she could send me some post cards from her travels to use in homeschooling she didn't hesitate to yes. She has a great heart and takes wonderful pictures of her journeys.

Mimi- Mimi and I are a couple of peas in a pod. Maybe that's because we share the same birthday. I don't know how she does it but she manages to get around the blog world and leave her sweet mark on various different blogs. She must type faster than me! Hee! Hee!

Laura Lee - Love this gal's heart. She just always has an encouraging word whenever I need it. And the best devotionals on the planet!

Now for some fast growing friends! I can see me clicking with all of you if I ever got to meet you. I love you all.

Okay I was putting down names and linking up to everyone when I realized I was basically going down my list of people that I follow, because I don't follow anyone I don't like. So if I follow you I consider you my friend or you may be on my side bar on my blog. Either way, I am so floored at the friendships that I have made. You all know who you are!! If you know me then you know me to be sincere. So believe me when I say that I would call any and all of you my friends. You all bless me in your own individual way. Some of you make ME laugh, some make me think, some make me grateful and some bring encouragement. You are my blogging melting pot and I love you all!
So if you ever have the time, go check out those that I follow. You will definitely meet some more really great gals!!

Come back tomorrow for Friday Funnies. Lisa doesn't even know what I'm up to. But it'll be fun!
And don't forget that Saturday you'll be linking up YOUR friendship post!



  1. OH how fun! I will definitely have to play along on Saturday. I have made some great friends through blogging. Now I'm curious about tomorrow ;)

  2. Kim,

    Thanks for that sweet comment about me. You are too funny. I think we have a bunch in common too. our Bday's are coming up soon too!
    Wish I was coming to Florida...to meet ya!
    Maybe next year.

  3. That is awesome that you met Debra. I met Carla when I took my trip to Texas. It was so much fun. I love blog land too. Have a great day.

  4. What a nice idea! I am going to go and check them all out!

  5. Man, that was some serious BLOGGY FRIEND LOVE!!! You are a great blogger and what an awesome idea...I did not know that you an Mimi had the same bday soooo guess what that means...I will now hold July 20th as a cool reminder of how awesome both of you are!!!!

  6. What a sweet idea. I can't wait to meet Debra on the 4th. ;)

  7. This seems like it will be a wonderful idea! How fun!!! Blessings friend!

  8. Hey Kim! This is a great idea. Isn't it funny how you get to know all these great people with out ever meeting face to face (well, at least most of them.) I actually will be getting together with some bloggy friends next week. One of which is a great MOM and on your list (hint) (hint). So excited about that! I'm so glad I stumbled upon a Homesteaders Heart. You are like a ray of sunshine. You always manage to put a smile on my face.

    And to comment on your comment about using the air compressor to blow up a pool. You're not lazy. You're SMART! I was determined to blow that sucker up that instant, with or without help. And like I said, it made a SUCKER out of me. Oh well, lol!

    Hugs & Squeezes,
    ~ Miti

  9. This is a great idea! I know what you mean, though, about having a hard time narrowing a list down. There are so many wonderful people I am slowly getting to know (you, among them)that I would probably agonize over leaving someone out! Lol!

  10. Oh my friend - I think your post is better than mine!!! So sweet!

    We are so blessed by our friendships and there are so many!

    Now I am very suspicious about tomorrow and will have to work harder on my chocolate battle post - LOL!

    Love you my friend! Big bloggy-friendship-blessings hugs to you!

  11. Kim,
    I think this is a great idea. I have met some really neat friends too. But, I won't be able to link up on Saturday because I will be out of town with my oldest son for a baseball tournament. But I will be sure to come back and check out all the fun when I return.


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