A - Z Monday - D is for "Denise!"

Today's A-Z letter is "D" and my "D" is for Denise!! As Jen at Unglazed correctly guessed, Denise at Vintage Log Cabin came over to visit me at our log cabin! To visit or participate in A-Z Mondays, please visit Jen at Unglazed.


I kept looking out the cabin door awaiting Denise's arrival. I debated whipping out the camera and taking a photo of her as she pulled up - but then I didn't want to scare her!








Denise is as nice as I thought she would be! And she was so sweet to bring me so many gifts! Check out these loon coasters and earrings that she got! She also brought me some jam, salsa and baked a chocolate eclair cake! I think Denise has to be the most generous guest ever!




I made Denise Rigatoni and after lunch I showed her downtown Gaylord and we did a little shopping. I had a great time talking with Denise and now we look forward to meeting her husband Bill!




Denise is like me and doesn't like her picture taken. Thanks Denise for allowing this photo! Isn't she a cutie?

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow---what a nice day!!! I'm so jealous.. Wish I had have been there. I can't believe that Denise found some loon coasters and earrings. How special is that!!!!!!

I love the picture of the two of you. I enjoy seeing pictures of my new blog friends. Denise looks alot like my friend Debbie in Texas.

Thanks for sharing!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Great pic you two! Maybe sometime I'll get out your way,...I feel like I have such wonderful friends in the blog world!

Ben said...

Pretty handy that someone with a name starting with "D" visited!

Denise said...

Well shucks! Thank you Shelley for being such a fantastic hostess and cook! We had a LOT of fun. Unfortunately, I forgot to take my camera to Shelley's. Her husband Greg is VERY handsome, and also a great host. Shelley and Greg rib each other a lot like Bill and I do. PS You must try her Rigatoni recipe that she has on the site here. It is wonderful! We are looking forward to having Shelley and Greg over to our humble abode. Thank you for such a wonderful day.

Charli and me said...

It sounds like you had a fun girl's day out:>)

George said...

Did you arrange the visit so Denise would be there when you needed to post with "D"? Regardless, it sounds as if the two of you had a great time.

Well, I know it was a wonderful day, because I did the same thing today! I met a fellow blogger, we went thrifting and out to lunch. Isn't it fun!

Dawnie said...

Cassie said...

Wow, Denise brought enough hostess gifts for her next 5 visits! Since I made the rigatoni from your recipe, I know she got a most yummy meal;<) Nice picture of you two.

Judy said...

What a generous gesture on her part. I always imagined that your cabin would look even better(if that is possible)than the pictures portray. Sounds like you both had a fun time.

Sandy said...

That is so cool you two got to meet. I've met some blog buddies before, once in an airport in Seattle, far away from my home.

Jen said...

How DIVINE!
I am so glad Denise was a part of D day :) and you shared her with us. Doesn't sound like you could have a better guest... and yes indeed Denise is a cutie just like you. So happy you two got together.

Judy said...

What a wonderful way to spend a day. I'm so glad you enjoyed yourself.

JyLnC said...

It's always fun to meet someone you've been getting to know via the cyberspace. It sounds like you had a great time and the gifts make it even better.

I was half expecting that you were going to say you were waiting for Denise on the deck in your PAJAMAS just like when you are watching and waving at your neighbors. That might have scared her even more than snapping a picture as she drove up the drive. :>)

Barbara said...

Hey Shel....Wish I had a blogging friend close by,,,Isn't it nice to meet new folks.....you need to come to Texas.

Shellmo said...

sandy - it was fun!

Jen - you were brought up in conversation and agreed you'd be a hoot to hang out with!

Judy - thank you!

JyLync - I actually had on my kitty & scottish terrier PJ's on that day - but elected to put on some regular clothes - LOL!!

Barbara - I hear Texas is warmer than Michigan!......

How nice to meet a blogging buddy. One that has so much in common with you too! I am glad you had such a nice time.

Pssst....Denise....could you send me the recipe for the chocolate eclair cake? That just sounds sooooo delicious!
