Meet My New Friend!

I had a great weekend....made nearly $300 on my garage sale between Sat and Sun...enjoyed a cookout at Dwayne's mom's house on Sunday afternoon, had dinner with family at Mom and Dad's last night...but the most fun part was having lunch with Kim yesterday!  She's a great girl who's been following my blog for a while, and let me know that we're practically neighbors!  She lives in Woodstock, not far from me, and we met up for lunch yesterday...which involved almost 3 hours of conversation...it's been mind-blowing finding out how much we have in common...it was awesome! 

Kim goes to Weight Watchers and Sunday she competed in the Peachtree Road Race which is a VERY popular event here in Atlanta.  Her and her friends finished with a time that was even better than last year...very proud of her!  All the excitement is rubbing off on me and making me think that I might like to participate next year in her little group (walking of course, since my knees can't handle running)...hooray for inspiration to set a new goal!  Kim had mentioned that she had been pondering starting her own blog, and I suggested she go for it!!  I told her she's absolutely going to love it here in Blogland, so she started her own blog last night!!  I've added it to my sidebar, and it's called "All About The Bottom Line".  I hope you stop by and say hello and give my new friend a great big warm welcome!! :)

  3. So happy you had a good holiday weekend, made some money at the garage sale and got to hang out with a new friend. I will definitely check out Kim's blog and say hello. Hope you're staying cool. We're having a heatwave here in the northeast and I'm trapped in my A/C'd bedroom. ;)

  7. Hey Tammy .. I'm so glad that your garage sale went well. Extra cash always comes in handy doesn't it? I went on over to visit your new friend Kim's blog and signed up as a follower. It's neat that you two live close and have become friends. I wish I could be your friend too. :) Too bad I live so damn far. Have a great week!
