Day of Firsts

Today was a day of firsts for me. It was my first time shopping at the outlets in Commerce, GA and, more importantly, it was the first time that I met someone in person that I had initially met online. In March of last year, when I found out I was pregnant, I joined an online group for mommies also due in November of 2010. I "met" several other ladies and we became friends. We talked about our birth plans, hopes, fears and parenting styles. We posted about our embarrassing pregnancy moments. We argued. Prior to this experience, I didn't believe it was possible to make friends over the internet. I was wrong. I've learned that it is very possible to make friends (and enemies) online.

Chris, Liam and I met my friend, her husband and their son for lunch before we hit up the outlet stores. We picked the location because it was pretty much equidistant between our houses and, of course, because we could go shopping. ;) It was a great afternoon!
