Guess Who x 2

I'm back from beautiful Kiawah Island, SC.  We had such a great time.  I'll post a full vacay wrap-up sometime this week.  For now let's play a little game of guess who x 2, which basically means let's play 2 games okay?!

First, guess who I got to meet while I was on vacay?!

Cassie from Primitive and Proper !!!  Cassie is one of my blogging friends that has now become a real life friend!  She read my post on Friday about how I'd been vacationing with my family in Kiawah and commented that she was visiting Seabrook.  For those that aren't familiar with the area, Kiawah and Seabrook are right next door to each other.  Isn't it crazy how the world works sometimes?!  Cassie and I met for coffee Saturday morning and chatted about anything and everything.  I swear it was like we'd known each other for years.  She is the absolute sweetest!  I hate to embarrass her, but I have to say, she has the most beautiful blue eyes you've ever seen!  Really!  I had to e-mail her after we'd met to let her know I was sorry if I was staring but that her eyes are just so pretty I couldn't help myself.  :)  You think I'm kidding, but this is the truth peeps!  I was so thrilled to meet her in person.  If you have never been to her blog you must pay her a visit.  She is so talented and does amazing things with furniture!

I have to say making new friends has been the most unexpected surprise of this whole blogging adventure!  I'm truly blessed to have sweet Cassie as a real life friend now!  

Okay, up for one more round of guess who?  Well, guess who asked me to guest post about my dining room stenciling project on her fabulous blog?!  


Yep, Shelli from a la mode !  You've probably already seen her gorgeous home tour on a number of blogs unless of course you've been living under a rock.  She has amazing design skills!  I was beyond flattered when she asked if I'd guest post on her blog.  Head on over to check it out!  

I'll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the Willow House "must have mini markers" giveaway.  If you haven't already entered, there's still time!
