In My Eyes...

A long time ago I talked to Shalee via email and had a great time. I mentioned that we should swap phone numbers and actually talk on the phone. She thought that was a great idea and emailed me her number. I was pregnant with Jacob at the time and was getting preparing for life with three little boys. My intentions were good but I never made the call. Eventually I just got comfortable knowing I had the phone number but not actually taking the first step. It was ridiculous, I know!

So the other day I left a comment, like I always do and she replied to it. She is such a crack up and I love hearing her take on life. Anyway, I mentioned that I had wanted to call but always chickened out. I got an email back saying "Check your cell phone you big dummy!" I laughed so hard when I read that and then quickly checked my messages. She left one saying "Stace it's me Shalee, quit chickening out and call me you big dummy!" Then I couldn't stop laughing.

I picked up the phone and called her. She was so easy to talk to and asked about my family. We had a great time talking for about 20 minutes. It was wonderful to actually hear her voice! I'm so glad we finally made it a priority to chat. I know it won't be the last time! Thanks Shalee for making me step out and say hello :o)


Speaking of blogging friends, my friend Beth has been trying to blog for a while now. She always posts stuff and then gets frustrated and takes a break. Yesterday I went to her house to help her get it all set up and ready. So stop by and say hi to Beth when you get a chance!

Stacey, you are so nice. Thanks for coming over and helping me out. I saw how cool your blog was and I got inspired again. Your mom said to ask you for help, because you are the brains behind the blog :o).

Stacey, I had a great time too! It's amazing how the blogosphere can be so big and intimidating, but then when you finally tirl or mirl, you realize that the people behind the blogs are just that - people.

And it WON'T be the last time we talk. You are a jewel!

That is awesome! It is fun to talk to others but some times it is easy to hide behind a blog. Glad you stepped out. You are doing that alot lately. I am proud of you!!

I love getting over the initial "roadblocks" we put in our ways at time and then we look back and see how crazy our procrastination had been.
