Blog Friends

My friend Cassie (Hi Sugarplum) is the first “blog friend” I made, and when I was on my way to meet her in person for the first time, it felt like I was driving to an internet blind date.  But, we hit it off right away — it’s impossible not to immediately like her — she is genuine and smart and too cute for words.  Even though she is really funny and witty, she is also someone you can be completely honest and real with.  I’ve come to truly appreciate our friendship and her point of view/support when I need it.  Nearly three years later, we’ve managed to get together a few more times, although we live in different cities. Cassie stopped by this weekend on her way to Galveston, which is where James and I will be hanging out with her and her sweet kiddos today!

Also, I get to play Cassie’s 20 Questions on her blog today, where you can find out some random things about me like my height, high school jam, and totally inane talent (hint: it involves my feet:)

P.S. Did I mention Cassie’s kitchen is in BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS right now?!  It’s the Kitchen and Bath special issue publication on sale through winter.  I couldn’t help but tell the cashier, “My friend is in this magazine!”  She got all excited too and had me show her! 🙂

Let's be friends!

I hope you enjoy your Monday! I’ll be back soon to show you how my dark grey hallway doors and striped foyer turned out.  I’ve been on a painting kick lately – if you follow me on Instagram (@honeywerehome), you can see some sneak peeks!

    It was so much fun reading your answers to Cassie's 20 questions. Can't believe it's been three years since I started reading both of your blogs. James was just a BABY!!! You are both the sweetest. I told Cassie I am hoping this is the year I finally get to meet up with you two. Two of my most favorite people!!

    I read your 20 questions. I also love HWNJ and HWOC. I never miss an episode. I pick up things with my toes all the time too. It drives my husband crazy. haha

    I read your blog daily and I just loved reading the answers to your 20 Questions over on Cassie's blog. You are too adorable. I have a cowlick and I would love to have two if it meant my hair looked as good as yours! Also, we must be close to the same age because my high school jams are the same as yours.

    It is amazing meeting new friends through the internet. It was a delight to meet Cassie at the blog conference and you are right, she is true and genuine. When I saw her for the first time she came over and said "Amy..right?" and then gave me a hug. So wish I could have met you, but we will have to make that happen someday. So glad you have found a wonderful friend that has the same interests as you! Have a great weekend Megan!
