high: hi

Hey, it's only Tuesday and I have already experienced what I think will be the high point of my week. Yesterday I got to meet (in person) the lovely Kathryn of Daring Young Mom. She met me on campus (living up to her title as it takes true Daring to brave the nightmare of finding a place to park at BYU--I can tell you her parking spot quest was not the high point of her week). We hung out for lunch in the Cougareat cafeteria with our kids and had a delightful (if too short) chat. Laylee is just as cute as she looks in her pictures and Magoo, who stayed with us at the table while his mom took his sister for an emergency pit stop, did his best to entertain us. I told him that my only rule is "No choking." He commenced a series of fakey little coughs and giggles to psych me out but I wasn't falling for it. Nora did her best to impress our new friends with that trick I taught her of mooching Doritoes from other people's plates and swiping pens from unsuspecting students. We're working on the wallets next.

Kathryn's was one of the first blogs I ever read and she has been very supportive of my writing from the very start. I'm honored that she would share a piece of her valuable Utah time with me. She's the kind of person I would have loved hanging out with in college--always funny and genuine and smart. Of course I would have had to have been about 10 years younger to have gone to college with her, but who's counting? She is indeed a daring YOUNG mom, but also the kind of person who obviously makes friends of all ages wherever she goes.

It sounds so fun! I'll forgive you for not inviting me since I probably wouldn't have driven down anyway. I would have thought about it though!

Is you husband getting used to your blogging flings or does he still think you're nuts?

I remember meeting her last year in Seattle...such a crack up. Sounds like a lovely visit!
