Groupie Day: Kandee Johnson!! (and Molly :)

<- It's in black & white because, for some reason, I had this ray of light over me, just so my face would look huge. She, of course, looks like a rockstar.

Guess what I did today - I met internet legend Kandee Johnson!!!!

It's still hard to believe. I went all the way to San Francisco, about 45 min. from where I live - a long drive which hubby loved to make (not), to this Levi's event "Calling All Curves". I'm not gonna talk much about it 'cause they're not paying me for the free publicity :), but I did have a lot of fun!

I mean, getting to SF and leaving it in a rainy day, with a frustrated husband (he hates to drive there) AND a moody 1-year-old was NOT fun, no. I have no idea why I thought this would be a "quick adventure". Ha. It was an adventure alright. But not quick at all, and not very enjoyable. But I'm talking about the journey, not the metting Kandee itself. That was awesome. I felt like a 16-year-old in a Justin Bieber concert :). "Can I take a picture with you pleeeeease? Yaay I'm SO excited!!" <- me in a 16-year-old voice.

Do you know what saved the day from the exhausting ride home? A sweet little girl named Molly. And her parents - two of our best friends in the whole world. Mike & Jen have been an entity that we've looked up to long before David and I were even married. Today, over 4 years later (since I met them), it's so cool so see how far we've all come. I can't wait for our girls to grow together!

Nice catch-up time! Melissa's about to violently caress Molly.

Melissa LOVED Luke, and cracked up when he grunted at her (!).

Thank You Lord, for moments like these that remind us what it's all about.

Melissa and Molly are so cute together :) And I'm so glad that you got a chance to meet Kandee! I checked out her blog and it looked awesome. (Her little "Cupcake" is adorable too.)

You and your husband are very fortunate to have friends like Mike and Jen... a couple that you can grow and share experiences with for years to come. Hopefully, if it's God's will for me to marry, I'll have a similar couple (or couples) in my life :)

I made your blog! I feel so famous! We loved having you all over and introducing you to Molly. Someday soon she and Melissa will be great friends, just like you and me are now. :-)
