fun way to start my morning.

to be honest, i don't know how to start this.

other than to say...what is my deal with meeting bloggers these days?

this one was different, though.

perhaps you're familiar with my children's involvement with ECI? you're not? well, it seems that neither of my children had any interest in speaking "on time." which is funny. seeing as big h talks literally non. stop. all the time. every day. sun up. to sun down. every waking minute, the boy is talking.

it just took him a while. a LLLLOOOOONNNNNGGGGG while. stubborn, i guess. (cough, cough. understatement.)

and goo? same thing. however, she's blossomed into a little talking flower herself.

anyhoo. during our second go-around with ECI (with which we are now finished), we met a lovely girl named krista. who was our early intervention specialist. she has since left the organization for a new career. but when she was leaving us, she mentioned that she had a fellow client that she believed i might enjoy. and would it be alright to give her my email address?

sure. no problem.

we've emailed several different times, back and forth. and i thought, "well she seems like a nice girl."

until i actually met her.

and LOVED her. seriously. i called buz, my mom, and my mother-in-law to tell them all about my "new little friend," (as buz has referred to her).

our list of similarities include but are not limited to the following: we both love Jesus, drive 4Runners, love Dr. Pepper, love the Office, "do" photography, were in the social work field, and are stay at home moms to 2- and 4-year-olds.
the odds of us being friends? um, i'm say pretty decent.

and she happens to be beautiful. please. go look. see?

so krista, oh ECI girl. thank you. thank you for setting us up. we're so grateful.

oh. and of course, just some pics from the very hot afternoon.

Isn't it the most exciting thing ti click with a new girlfriend?? It happens so rarely nowadays.

Mags in in ECI for speech too. Tell me more about how they eventually talk nonstop...tell me more...

altho, just in the past 2 weeks, she is talking like crazy. I swear it has something to do with the hurricane.

Love the fact you put Jesus and Dr Pepper in the same sentence:) Makes me smile across the pond. Can you add some spicy layout to my blog? I'm jealous

You still love your old "little friend" don't you ;-)

4-Runner eh?
that's at the top of my short list for whenever the CRV kicks over.
Do you like it? Is it roomy? Does the gas mileage totally stink??

Do tell.

And your new friend sounds almost as fun and charming as me! ;-)
