My trip to KY!

I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun I had during my little excursion to KY! When I learned that my dear friend Lisa was going to be there on business, I jumped all over driving up to see her. Then she informed me that we were going to see Felicia, Leslie, Marla, Becky and Virginia and their girls, and well...I was just plain giddy!!!

These ladies are all so sweet and genuine and unique and we all share the common thread of loving some special kids, blogging and taking pictures. It's amazing to me that this blogging community has become some of my very dearest friends (afterall, for the longest time I told people you all were my invisible friends :) Not any longer!)

Thanks Lisa for being my partner in crime! We sure do have fun together and I can see many, MANY years of fun and laughter! I love ya, girl!

Felicia: Thank you for your hospitality! You are so gracious and kind. You are every bit as warm and wonderful as I thought you'd be! We will be seeing each other soon :)

Becky: Girl, how sorry am I that I didn't get to shoot with you!!! :( I am DEFINITELY coming back up and we will have a big photoshoot : ) It was so great to meet you and your sweet girls!!

Virginia: I'm sorry that I didn't get to chat with you more! I am so excited about your upcoming adventure to Kerry Lu! She is a beautiful baby girl. Blessings on your big trip to motherhood!

Marla: I swear you might be THE funniest person I have ever met! Seriously! I had sooo much fun talking to you at dinner. You are an awesome mommy and too funny to boot! We WILL be seeing each other again!

Leslie: I just love you! What a sweetheart you are. I know that if we ever got to spend some time together (just the two of us), we could talk for hours! Your girls stole my heart and I am going to take you up on your offer to visit! Can't wait to see you again (and meet Larry :)

I am so lucky to have spent time with you all!

Now, as for pictures : ( In all the excitement...I set my ISO speed to 3200 :( They are muy grainy, but even with these subjects, you can't hide the cuteness!!!

Enjoy!

Meet everyone!

Oh Missy,
What fun you must have had!! What an awesome group of women and some adorable little girls. Oh, how I would have loved to have been sitting at that dinner table, enjoying that lively conversation.

I want in on the next great adventure, ok?

Have a great weekend!

Felicia said...

Oh, I love these images. You are just the warmest and sweetest person. Seriously, I mean you're just genuinely beautiful. Thanks for making the drive. Can't wait to see everyone again!

Jboo said...

Wow Missy!! Sounds like a great time was had by all! Great shots! Were your ears burning while you were there? Jodee and I kept talking about you all and wishing that Nebraska was a whole lot closer!

Have a fun weekend!

Marla said...

I love the shots, all of them! It looks like y'all had a blast. I'm sorry I missed all the action. Next get-together should be in TEXAS!!!! I'd love to meet the other Marla, too. She's got to be cool with a name like that. ;)

Jennifer said...

So fun! I am so glad you had a chance to meet everyone. The pictures are beautiful and the girls all look so joyful!

Colleen said...

Sounds like too much fun you lucky girl you!!!!:)How wonderful to have been able to meet up with everyone!
As always your photos are gorgeous and the girls are just way too cute!

Leslie said...

Missy, I just knew me and you would be fast friends if we ever met. Your a girl after my own heart. You better come back up, and we'll be coming down too. 2.5 hours should not keep us apart!!!!

Marla and I just loved you, and talked about you girls on our way home last night. Marla is the best, and she keeps me in stitches daily. I'm glad you guys became such fast friends.

Thank you so much for shooting my girls. Your shots are just gorgeous girl. Did you use LR and PS? I just love what you did. Thank you again for getting down and dirty for our girls.

So when are we getting together again???

Missy -- It looks like you had an amazing time with Garlic Lisa and gang! I am sure there was never a dull moment. These pictures are just adorable! Can the next bloggy party be in Nebraska?! Doesn't anyone have any farm business to take care of?!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Missy,

What a fun trip! I don't know any of these bloggy ladies except Lisa, not personally...only through blogland. She is a SWEETHEART! I will have to visit their blogs and get to know them.

Girl....CONGRATULATIONS on the 9 lbs...that is awesome! Weight Watchers is a wonderful program...i love it! I have not done as good this week because I have been under the weather, and it's like I try to find a food that will make me feel better....thus I eat. I am feeling better now so I am back on strong...I will feel good this week if I don't have a gain.

I am sorry I haven't got a blog set up yet. I am going to work on it as soon and I leave this comment.

I really am proud of you!
Kim

Colleen said...

How fun!! What a beautiful group of girls! Younger and older! So neat that you got a chance to do this and meet up! I'm still super bummed that we were sick and had to back out of seeing you on our way home. I was so looking forward to it!:(

Ivy said...

Hey girl!!

I am just getting around to blogs....I am SO BEHIND and it is driving me crazy!!

I had SO MUCH fun Thursday night....everyone was just as I had imagined them to be.....nothing short of spectacular!! What an amazing group of women....I really wish I lived closer to you all, but I will let you know when I am coming back!!

I am glad that we had extra time to catch up and play around with PS and LR.....too bad I had to catch an early am flight, or we would have been up all night!! Thank you for making the trip.....you are beautiful inside and out and such a special friend to me...you are so right....there will be many years of fun and laughter!!

Luv Ya Girl....Enjoy your weekend!

Lisa
