"Lisa made the paper!" was Sherry's exclamation this morning as she browsed the headlines. That is Lisa of 'Life away from the Office Chair' Lisa.
Bloggers who read her blog have read the story. She is seen nationally, featured on 'Nutrisystem's advertisements. She is a beautiful lady who lost weight thru the 'system' and had her families' support. I know hubby N is proud of her.
WAY TO GO LISA!
It is a strange thing about our gypsy lives, we have visited museums and sites thousands of miles away from home and have missed some locally, in Gastonia and Charlotte. It is the same with Bloggers, we have met many of the wonderful folk we meet here in Bloggersville who live in Michigan, Wisconsin, Alabama, Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky. Lisa lives in the town I was born in and I last lived permanently in the town she was born in, both ten miles apart. We have never met, but we must remedy that this spring. We don't know many celebrities, I need some bragging rights!
On Lisa's blog awhile back she displayed a Shrug she had made. I heard my girl say, "I would love to have one of those!" Since she NEVER asks for anything I could not resist.
Before I show Sherry's Christmas present let me say that I misunderstood Lisa's blog when she displayed the 'Shrug'. I thought she it was in her store, so I ordered one. She returned the e-mail saying it was not in the store, but she would gladly make one for Sherry. WOW.
It is Sherry's Christmas present, and she has it early. She and I sometimes exchange cards at Christmas and have a dinner out, that is about it. Always when I ask what she wants for Christmas I get, "Let's go to Red Lobster."
Yes, we are still in the Motor home. We may move into our house soon. But for now, it is just as cozy as that Shrug.
