What a Surprise!!!!!








What a Surprise!

Saturday was my monthly crop club's crop at my house. So on Saturday morning I got up to get everything ready and organized. My best friend Cathy, in Alabama called to see how my preparation was going. She and I both were sad that she wasn't gonna be here for the crop, since I live in Texas. Well my later on my first guest to arrive was C.J., just was we got all of her supplies in the house and got her set up the doorbell rang. I peeked out to see who it was. There were two ladies at my door that I couldn't recognize thru the peep hole. I opened the door. All I saw was two ladies, one who looked familiar and another who had a camera in front of her face and all I could see was a mouth that looked really familiar... IT WAS CATHY!!!!!!!! Once I realized it was her we both screamed and hollered! I couldn't believe my eyes! She surprised me and drove all the way from Alabama to be at the crop with me! I was so excited and surprised! It was the greatest surprise ever! She had her SIL with her, and I hadn't seen her in awhile either. I was still trippin for like an hour after she got there... cause I hadn't seen her in months and didn't expect in a million years that she would come to the crop.

The thing is Cathy and I tell each other EVERYTHING! No secrets! So for her to keep this to herself is major!!! We talk a million times a day, email each other constantly and we are always in touch... so she is a little sneaky devil! I am so glad that her DH was thoughtful enough to want her to be able to spend time with me and to drive 10 hours for her to hang out with me. He totally rocks!

The shock of seeing Cathy never did wear off but we did try and get some scrappin done. Then M.A. and A.R. arrived and were also shocked and surprised to see Cathy there too! It was a wonderful reunion for us. We all had a great time catching up and scrappin. We even made a quick run to Hobby Lobby to check out the sale of the week. We had Lasagna for dinner. It was really good. We had lots of snacks and sweets to keep us full. We "watched or listened to" about 5 movies! The last scrappers left around 1:00 am. I did 3 pages... which is pretty good for me during a crop. I really hated to see Cathy go when it was time to leave. But I know we will see each other again soon. I must say I am truly blessed to have such great bunch of ladies to scrap with.

I hope Cathy knows how much I appreciate her visit! I really appreciate her friendship and it's a really treasured thing in my life. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have her in my life. She's my sounding board, my joking partner, confidant, my twin sister. She has a heart of gold and I would do anything for her. Thanks for being my friend always chica! I have the BEST FRIEND A GIRL COULD ASK FOR!!!! I will never forget this in a million years! Oh.... and Cathy you WILL NOT POST that picture of me looking shocked at the front door missy!!!

Below are the pics of the pages I managed to get done...

OMG, I know you were so ecstatic. How AWESOME is she and her hubby for that? I am so glad you got to see her and what a perfect surprise to come for your CROP party, which looked like a lot of fun by the way. Remember when we were (talking) about how much we have in common, it gets really scary now. My hubby looooves the range, and I've yet to go, but it's coming soon. How is it?
