~Doing my Happy Dance~

But with tired feet now ha ha!! Oh guys I had the best time ever in my whole life...I Ate too much, Walked too much, Talked too much, Gambled too much ha ha!!! Vegas and the car show were just wonderful....But getting to meet up with Chari at "Happy to Design" and her husband Russell was just PRICELESS....She is everything I expected and more warm, funny, loving and just a wonderful personality and a pleasure to be around...in 3 days we never ran out of a thing to talk about...were your ears burning guys ha ha!! If anyone would have told me 3 years ago I could meet someone in cyber world and become fast friend's with them I would have laughed.... Is she not lovely?? The guys got along GREAT in fact Russell and Len acted like they knew each other for years...hey !! it a guy lol....A GREAT time was had by all....We didn't get home until 4 am so this is what I'll be doing for the next few days ha ha!!! (besides the laundry ).
I have missed all you guys so much..wished I could have met all of you there...but as it was sitting outside with Chari at the car show for 5 hours and talking I think I got my tongue sun burned ha ha!! I'll show pictures of what we did in the next post ha ha!!
Until next time from my mountain top to yours,

Hugs and Smiles Gl♥ria

Oh, how awesome! Sounds like you two really had a blast! I wish I would have been there. We had actually planned on being in Vegas at the same time (it was our 10th wedding anniversary April 1 and we got married in Vegas) but, you know how life goes, things came up.

Glad you two had a great time!

Hi Gloria! Oh, what fun you two, or should I say, you four, had! You look so cute in this picture! I still haven't gotten to meet any blog friends in person! Waaa!
But hopefully I will someday.
You just rest and don't cry too much over loosing all that money. You did loose money didn't you? :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Mornin' Sis...

Hehe...you know the schedule...sitting here with my morning coffee and blogs! Hehe!

Sis...I'm missing you too! Shoot...what are we going to do today? Go to the strip...shopping...meet up for lunch? Hehe! We never did make it shopping...did we! Too much talking to catch up on! Ohhh yes...and on that note...you're tongue might be sunburned but I have NO VOICE! Yep...I lost my voice!!! Didn't have any voice when I woke up Monday...I always do that when I talk to much! Hehe! Sheeeshh!!! Go figure!

Poor Russell was beat by the time he got home from work last night...I fed him and put him to bed! I think it may take me weeks to catch up...my body is screamin' at me! How are you feeling today, Sweetie? Hope you're getting some rest...hey, I love your fuzzy slippers!!! Too cute!!! Well Sis...I'll talk with you later! Thanks so much for the sweet mention in your post...you're the bestest and you know that I love ya!!!

Love ya,
Chari

PS...I think I'll work on some of my Vegas photos today and try to do a post...we'll see! Hehe!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Gloria, you and Chari look so cute! I can just imagine all of the yapping and laughing y'all did. What fun! I'm so glad for both of you, but I am a little envious! Can't wait to see more pix. Glad you're back and blogging again. Missed ya! laurie

Hi Happy, glad you're home safe and sound and that you had a great time. We missed you!

Melissa Miller said...

Woohoo Gloria!!! Wow! Look at you two together in that beautiful photo. You both look so happy and gorgeous. The sweetest ladies in all of blog land and you got to meet each other. How fun is that!That would be so exciting to meet you all as well. Who knows what may happen. It's a small world that is for sure.

I hope you can show us more photos soon and tell us more funny stories after you rest up. I can't wait to hear them all! Love your precious red slippers. LOL! :)

Fieldstone said...

Hi Gloria, I am so happy that Chari and you met in Vegas at the car show with your husbands. I met you first on Rate My Space and knew right away that you were a very special person. And I remember the day when a lamp post appeared and Chari said she was dipping her toe in the water. To see how things have unfolded for the two "happys" makes me very happy. Hugs, Pam

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Gloria,

Glad that you had a fun weekend catching up with a wonderful friend.
sounds like fun!

Have a neat weekend
Hugs

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Sis...

Hehe...so glad that you found Len's keys! I just had to laugh when you said that you had "to think like Len would think" to find them! Too funny!!! How are you doing today, Sweetie? I swear that as the days go by...I'm moving slower and slower...it's all beginning to catch up with me! But that's okay...I would do it all over...a million times!!! Was wondering if Len got to see the photos that I posted yesterday of him, Russ, and the car? I know that he was wanting some like that! I'm thinking about having the "sepia toned" photo of the guys and the car...made off so I can frame it! I love how that one turned out!

Girlfriend, we'll be watching for Lenny's pkg. for Russell! Those guys are just too cute...don't you think? Long lost friends!!! Hey, I just got your book in the mail yesterday...sheeesh...they sure did take their sweet time! But...I thumbed through it and I think that you're going to love it! I will try and get it all boxed up (when I find the right sized box) and get it all mailed to you...along with Lenny's knife from Russell! Maybe I'll get it together to send Monday. Well Sis...not much going on at my place today. I will go into town and meet Russ after work...need groceries! Hehe! I'll talk to you later, Sweetie! Sure hope that you're doing okay!

Missing you...
Love ya,
Chari
