Small World

So yes, I am on Facebook as is most of the free world. A girl I went to high school and actually roomed with my freshman year of college found me on Facebook and she actually no longer lives in Virginia either. She moved to the Raleigh area about a year ago. In college, we kind of drifted apart - she was in the marching band at Virginia Tech, and well, I wasn't. I had given up band at that point (that is a post all to itself someday). We conversed a few times on Facebook, but shockingly I don't get on Facebook all that much.

Fast forward to yesterday. One of the reasons we moved down here was because of our best friends Wendy and Matt. Ray and I went to college with Wendy, and she got a job in Raleigh out of college. We would visit them a few times a year, and fell in love with the area. They have a little boy Ashley's age, and a little girl who just turned two.

So we were at the two year old's birthday party when my high school friend walked in! Her daughter is at the same daycare as Wendy and Matt's daughter. Crazy, crazy, CRAZY! So we got to catch up during the whole party (while Ashley and Audrey, who were the oldest kids there, ran rampant, but nicely rampant). We exchanged phone numbers and promised to get together since they are still getting to know the area, and fortunately for us (with Ray being a realtor), we kind of know the area better than most newbies. That, and we have lived here three years next month.

I promise to post pictures of Ashley's new haircut tomorrow, as well as our adventure from Saturday. We have a sort of busy week - it's teacher appreciation week this week (instead of in May) at Audrey's school. Ashley has her field day at school on Friday, and then we get to leave for Concord, NC to spend the night at a Great Wolf Lodge as a "Very Important Family" or VIF. I am so freaking excited about it, I can't even tell you. Not only do we get to stay for free, we are being treated to dinner Friday night and breakfast Saturday morning, AND we get to see Mitchell Musso in concert. The girls are beyond excited. Ray is of course excited about all the free parts.

It really is a small world! Maybe one day we will run into each other! lol!

Have fun at The Great Wolf Lodge. I can't wait to hear all about it. We have talked about going.

WOW! Totally a small world indeed. But cool at the same time, it's amazing how fast time flies and how easy it is to lose touch with friends!

Can't wait to see the new haircut!

I think I'm the only person (and my husband) who hasn't facebook-ed.
