Be Very, Very Jealous!

Amanda and I will be heading back to Connecticut today and home sweet home via what I hope is a road less traveled by everyone else (is there such a thing in the Northeast?) but I just had to write a quick post about our dinner last night with the two very nicest people in Pennsylvania -

This is Mark and his gorgeous wife Lisa - known to a lot of us in the blogosphere as Star - with whom Amanda and I spent a wonderful three hours at dinner last night. If you think that Lisa is nice on her blog, you really need to meet her in person and hubby Mark is all that she says he is and then some! What a lovely couple - so in love and expecting their first little bundle of joy (Megan was there, too, you just can't see her!). I stick by what I've said in the past, bloggers are some of the most wonderful people EVER!

I've got more pictures to share a little later on but I wanted to get these two up before we hit the road again just to tell you what a wonderful time we had and how happy I am that Mark & Lisa took the time to drive up from their home about an hour away to spend time with a couple of travelers passing through their area. Seriously, if you're ever around Scranton, be sure to arrange a meeting - you'll be glad you did!

Oh, and for those wondering - yes, hugs were given all around in spite of my reputation for being non-huggable!


  1. you'd better watch're quickly losing that non-huggable reputation and replacing it with a hug-attracting one!!

  2. oh wow, i AM jealous!!! and two photos of markie with his tongue in! ha ha ha

    smiles, bee

  3. Aren't you the luckiest blogger! Well, except for maybe Lisa! Mark may have kept his tongue in, but I noticed that the bunny ears are up!

  4. We had a blast! Everyone was right, Linda and Amanda were the so great. We love them oodles! I was thoroughly impressed with A's knowledge of all things otherwise foreign, such as rock bands, zombies and Edgar A Poe.

    And there must be a picture of Mark's tongue somewhere... if not we'll just have to do it again sometime. :)

    Megan had a great time too, she kicked and kicked most of the time we sat and talked and talked. I'll post soon about it,too.

    Safe travels my friends as you make your way North! Hope A made it to the art store. :)

  5. Aw, you lucky duck meeting some more great bloggers. Sounds like a great time!

    Have a safe trip back to the Nutmeg State. ;-)

  6. I am jealous. I would love to meet Markie and Lisa in person. I really would. I'm so glad that you enjoyed your visit. You are right...bloggers are some of the most wonderful people ever.

    Have a terrific day Linda. Big hug. :)

  7. If those smiles are any indication, it looks as if you all had a great time. Getting together with bloggers is always a major treat.

  8. How lucky you were to meet a fellow blogger!

  9. I'm so envious of you Linda and how many bloggers you get to meet. They look like great people. :)
