The Best Birthday Present...


...is time spent with good friends.

Of course I already know and love Jodie like a sister, but this  time, 
I had the privilege of meeting The Man.


Miss Everything Vintage and her hubby
were in Fredericksburg for a big-time gathering
of Corvette couples from Louisiana this weekend, 
and they had a packed itinerary...
so I consider myself super lucky to be able to spend
a bit of time with these two fabulous friends!


And they got to see the  house!

I only had my cheap point and shoot, but
Jodie snapped tons of pics with her fancy schmancy camera, 
so I'm hoping to steal a few of hers once she gets 'em posted. 

{hers left, mine right}

Dang, they could be brothers, couldn't they??
Well, with the exception of the chandelier growing out of Thad's head.
Her man and my man got along like a house on fire, 
so I think I foresee a road trip to Cajun country in the not too distant future.

It's been a crazy hectic birthday week for me
(the actual day is tomorrow)
so I've been "doing" and "living" instead of blogging, but I have oodles of new stuff
to share in the week ahead.
So come on back!

Have a beautiful weekend!

This is so great! Love the pics. We need one of you and Jodie though. I talked to Jodie via email before she left. I won me some pepper jelly. lol We started talking about how I grew up in a house that showed Corvettes and did the whole Corvette club, rally thingy. She's a hoot. I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit. More importantly...Happy Birthday, new friend! I truly hope it is something special.

Hey Anne-I just read some of your earlier posts. Namely, the follower post and the cubby post. Enjoyed the both so much. You really do have such a way with words and hit the nail right on the head when it comes to fitting in in the blogging world....or the need to fit in in the blogging world....or not needing to fit in in the blogging world.
Anyway, I so enjoyed these posts!

Jodie (everything vintage) said...

Oh my gosh girl...It's already Tuesday and I'm JUST coming out of my WONDERFUL TEXAS COMA!
I had to have been the luckiest girl to have spent time with you and see your new house! woooo hoooo!!!! Thad and I talked about it (& ya'll too) all the way home (7.5 hours) and are making plans to go back to Fredericksburg again soon before it gets HOT! haha
Thank you for the fun Anne, I'm still dreaming of the farmhouse and wondering how you will decorate it. I'm also still dreaming of Homestead too...wow!!!!
I hope you had a great birthday Sunday!!! Could you tell that Thad was doing the texting while I was driving??? hahahahahahha (he's learning)
He really loved meeting James and is looking forward to coming up there again. Could it be that I have a "new" travel partner in my future thanks to you two????
Love you Anne...you are one in a million!
