"Say 'Prunes'...Say 'SEX'...

Seriously, ain't she CUTE??!!???

"Say 'Prunes'....Say 'Sex' "
Wayne, Pennsylvania

Blogging worlds collided on Sunday when one of my favorite Boston bloggers came to visit her dad in the Philly area.  We met for breakfast at a local diner.  Three hours worth of gabbing later I had to say good bye and let her return to her dad who was gracious enough to share her with me.  Yep, that's Adrienne from "My Memory Art".  If you don't know Adrienne, do yourself a favor and hop on over to her blog to see some gorgeous photography AND read her fabulous insights. Try it, you'll like it.

I've "known" Adrienne for about four years now.  But we had never met in person.  And I'm so glad to say what you see and read on her blog IS indeed genuine.  She is what she is, both in blogland AND in person.  Dang I wish we lived closer to each other because I think we could easily be besties.  EXCEPT for that whole Boston Red Sox thang!  We all have our flaws.

Lots of talking.  Lots of laughs.  When it was all said and done, we ventured out of the diner to our cars and realized we should take a photo. Natch conclusion considering the photo geeks we are.  But Adrienne was the brains when it came to the idea.  There was a family group in the parking lot and I snagged I THINK the oldest women in the group and we asked if she could take our photo.  No long as I could tell her which button to push on my Iphone.  Oh boy, "selfies" might be in our very near future.

Let's just say the first shot was NOT complimentary due to my reaction to her "Say Prunes!" prompt.  The next shot was a bit better to her second prompt attempt..."Say SEX!".  Truth is, it wasn't the first time I laughed at the mention of sex, and truth is it probaby won't be the last time.  I yam, what I yam.

A morning of laughs with a new OLD friend.  It doesn't get much better.  Thanks Adrienne!

  1. How fun for the two of you to meet! I've yet not to love a blogging friend I've gotten to meet.

  2. I know how awesome it is to meet up with a blogger friend - and it sounds like you two had a blast!

  3. You guys are adorable. When I saw the title I thought you were comparing accents ;) Though we usually 'say water' or 'car.' What fun!

  4. How wonderful! There's nothing like actually meeting up with someone you've talked with for a time. Loads of fun.

  5. I've been lucky enough to meet two blogger friends in person and it was like we'd always known each other.

  6. I've been lucky enough to meet two blogger friends in person and it was like we'd always known each other.

  7. Awesome! Meeting Old friends for the first time in person is a wonderful thing, glad you two had the opportunity.

  8. Ha ha...I can't imagine "prunes" as a smile-for-the-camera prompt, unless you were going for a puckered-up kissy face. Sex is much better...bound to get a genuine laugh of surprise, at the very least. This is a great shot of you both! Isn't it awesome to meet a blogging friend in person and hit it off?

  9. I had the privilege to meet up with both Adrienne and Tamar during my visit to Boston in March. Less than a minute in, it was just as Anita said, meeting old friends, and even with no voice, enjoyed my visit with them well after the food had been consumed.

  10. Oh described it all so perfectly! I love the comment, "thought you might be comparing accents!" Home safe - another super easy drive! {just the universe encouraging the 'good' daughter that lives in me somewhere!) Brian did a ton of stuff to help my dad around the house while we were amusing ourselves....I don't even think I was missed! Thanks again...and, yes...closer would be good!

  11. How wonderful that you could meet in person! I know Adriennes blog and do enjoy reading it very much! Lovely picture of the two of you.
