Fun and Friendly Friday Follow

Making New Friends 


Hey Blog Pals!

How are y'all this fine Friday? I hope the week has been good to ya, and I hope you have lots of fun summer plans to enjoy your weekend!

When it comes to meeting people and making friends, I am always so impressed with my 11 year old twins, Sophie and Jesse. Where ever we go, whether to the swimming pool, Wal-Mart, church, doesn't matter...they have an uncanny ability to attract new friends. They are just friendly and they like everybody so other kids respond in kind.

Some times they meet a kid at the toy aisle in Walgreens and have a great time for ten minutes and never see that person again, but while they are talking and laughing, they are having so much fun! When I look at one of them talking to a kid I can't tell if it is a friend they know from school or church or just some new pal they just met.

I love that about kids...they want to be friends with everybody! I have always kind of been that way myself...I really honestly LIKE most people that I meet and I'm happy to be friends with them. Like my little girl says, "You can never have too many friends!"

She's absolutely right, and in an effort to be more like her and her brother, I am extending an extra friendly Texas welcome for all of y'all to come and visit me here at my blog. I will do my best to check out each and every one of your blogs too and follow along...no matter how long it takes me to get through them all. I know from my past blog hopping there are some awesome blogs out there with some incredible women behind the keyboard creating them, and I'm looking forward to meeting each of ya!

So have a happy Friday Follow and good luck with all those new friends I know you are going to make!

P.S. If you like Texas, country music, or freakishly tall cowboy statues, you might enjoy my other blog, Happy Trails...you can check it out here.
Thanks! :-)

Okay, so I was in one of the groups on MBC and did a random clicking of a link to check out a new blog...and dang if I didn't luck out! I love your energy....a dose of positive is always a good thing!!
Would love you to check out my page as well! I'm starting a new Featured Business promo. to show support for small businesses...and other fun stuff going on. I've only been at blogging for 2 weeks (3?) but I love it!
Of course, if I were being honest, I just like to talk (can you tell?) I can talk to a brick wall and think I made a new friend!
Take care and hope to see you soon!
