Meeting Friends & We FINALLY hit the soccer fields!

Hello everyone!

It seems like I haven't posted in forEVER! But it's only been since Wednesday. And boy has a lot been happening since then. (NOTE: this will be a long one...consider yourself warned! But there are pictures along the way)

Like WHAT? Well, I'm glad you asked. :-)

Thursday - Thursday was an amazing day! I got to meet Cheryl and her lovely daughters. Oh my goodness, you guys, her girls are SO cute, SO funny and SOOOO like she describes them in her blog. But before I go any further about THEM...lemme just tell you, Cheryl is SUCH a sweetheart. We've been trying to meet up for quite some time now and could just never work it out. But due to the girls being on Spring Break, (her girls, not mine), we were finally able to make it happen. It was funny, she called me when they were a few minutes away. And asked if I'd mind being out on my front porch when they got here. For SOME reason, her husband wanted to make sure his wife and children weren't meeting up with some psycho serial killer, LOL. I guess I passed THAT test, lol.
My psycho squirrel chaser, Trae was outside with me. And he really enjoyed meeting the ladies too. He was the perfect height to give Scout a big sloppy kiss right across her face, lol.

Cheryl was so sweet...she came bearing gifts for me and Jayla. I'm so terrible, I only had gifts for the girls...SORRY, Cheryl! (not to worry, I have your address, lol) She brought me a sweet coffee mug, a beautiful paperweight with the word "INSPIRATION" on it and a 6 pack of Dr. Pepper. YEAH BABY!!! LOL

After Cheryl gave her stamp of approval of my studio, we went to pick Jayla up from school. And it was giggling heard from that point on. Jayla and Scout really hit it off big. We all went to Chick Fil A for lunch...YUM! Then headed up to Archivers. Guys, Cheryl was in HEAVEN! lol But neither one of us spent as much as I think we WANTED to. So we're already talking about her next visit.

Well, it goes without saying that Cheryl and I hit it off too. She is SUPER sweet! And so cute. I didn't tell her this, but I just LOVE she and the girls "suthin drawal" LOL. I am so glad we finally got to meet and that the girls got along so well. Maybe next time she comes up this way, she can bring Adrienne and her girls and we can have a big ole scrappin girl fest! Whatchall think? LOL

Here's some pix from our day.
Alrighty people, guess what? You're gonna be surprised...No, GUESS!!! Ok, ok...they cancelled soccer practice Thursday night! Are you shocked? Me neither.

But it's probably for the best. After all the running around, giggling and playing that Jayla and the girls did, Jayla would've been no good on the field anyways. lol
On Friday, I went to Jayla's school to take pictures of her class Easter Egg Hunt. Talk about cute!
Oh, and before I forget, how bout a flower fix?

Easter Lilly

And now, this brings me to todays events. We had a soccer game...2 of 'em even! YAY!!! Jayla and the Lil' Stingrays did AWESOME today to have only had 3 practices. And after this being the 4th Saturday into the season, today was their first game. So again, they did great. Here's some pix!

Jayla even took a hard hit with the ball, right in the thigh. Check this out.....she got hit so hard, there was an imprint of the ball on her thigh. Boy, you should've seen Jayla's face when she got hit. I could almost see one of those bubbles over her head with "$@&#!!!" in it, LOL. But she's such a trooper. She's no sissy girl on that field. After the game, she was telling everyone about her "war wound". LOL

Last, but definitely not least, the big Stingrays played today too. And they won 5 - 0! YAY Stingrays!!! They also played last night and won 6 - 2! These boys ROCK!!

Alrighty folks, that's all I've got for today. But before I go, I want to wish you all a wonderful Easter tomorrow. And remember...

"It's not the new dress with a matching hat.
It's not all the candy that makes you fat.
It's not going to church to hear bells ring.
It's to celebrate the Holy Risen KING!"
