Happy Birthday Girl!!!!

Today is my girl Greta's big birthday!!
I just love this girl so much and when people ask about blogging and whether it is good or not, worth the time, fun....I always scream YES!!, mostly because of this girl.
Without blogging, I woulda never met Greta.

In January 2006, I had taken a nasty spill down a flight of stairs for my birthday, what a present, and Greta was home from work for the month because she was "getting the girls done" so we started commenting on each other's blogs.
Over the months we got to know each other through the blogs and email.
By June, she had made mention on her blog that she wanted to go to CHA which is here in Chicago and I said..."come, you can stay with me!"
Well, within about an hour, it was official her and Elizabeth were coming to Chicago in only 2 weeks.
Some people thought I was nuts inviting these two Mississippi chicks to come for a weekend and stay with me, but I knew we would have a blast!

Well, we did.

We were instant best buds.
Loved Greta from the first swear word outta her mouth which is always followed up with a "Girl!" or "It was a hoot"
We blabber on the phone about every week and a half and hopefully one of us will travel to the other this year, I think it is my turn.

So, Miss Greta, happy birthday you young hot chick!
So sad I am not in hot Mississippi for your birthday, but I actually scrapbooked just for you!
And I got a present coming, I hear Carol picked you some hot new stuff I am sure you need like a hole in the head.
Love ya!

That is so cool that you've found such a good friend via the internet. I love your blog. I finally signed up for a blogger account so that I could post comments on your blog. Keep up the good work!

Happy Birthday, Greta!

Great page!
I think it's awesome that you invited the girls to stay with you! That is SO something I would do!
When I went to convention last year, I roomed with 3 other people that I'd NEVER met! And it was REALLY fun!
