Weekly Winners: April 19-25

This was a red-letter weekend in my blogging career. The first time I met an actual blog friend in real life!

Ok, let me back up. On Saturday we went to "The First Seventh Annual Grilled Cheese Invitational" -- a goofy thing, really. But we had a reason for going there.

Not just for the grilled cheese sandwiches ...


... although Wonderhubby really enjoyed them.

And so did the Roo-girl.

But the real reason was this:

That is me on the right with Rachel of A Southern Fairy Tale. She was here by the grace of Kraft (you know, like in "Singles") to blog about the grilled cheese fest.

Even the Roo-girl met her first blogger. No, we were very careful not to let it slip that I blog. Just that she is a friend whose blog I read. Sneaky, eh?

We took the train to the festival. I loved the colors and angles of this shot:

And the message of this one:

And I leave you with this image, shot by not by me, but by Wonderhubby. It is, of course, the promise of a better tomorrow.

Go --->here<--- for more weekly winners.

You know I'm totally going to pull a Jack Sheppard and start flying in and out of LA in the hopes that my passport will mysteriously vanish again, allowing ME to meet you?
True.

Looks like you had a great time. Omnomnom on the grilled cheese. Roo-girl is so freakin cute. How cool you got to meet Rachel. And, my dear Janet, you take 'sneaky' to a whole new level. Ingenious and amazing. Does Roo-girl just think she has a mother that loves to take lots of photos?
