My friend is famous........


So check out this picture. This is my friend, Robyn Bomar. We went to college together. She and I both got our degrees in Education. We wore apple pins, those god-forsaken jumpers at times, and taught small children how to read, write and do some arithmetic.....Now she's all famous and has Katherine Freakin' Heigl as a client and my clients are under the age of 5 and live in my home.

I have to admit, she did stay home when her kids were younger, but man-o-man, you should've seen the pictures of her kids birthday parties. The girl has got it going on. Check her out when you have some time. She has great ideas and might even live near you or someone you know! She's an event planner and her company's name is Mix Mingle Glow. Or you can always go to my blogroll because she is always there! :)

Congrats, Robyn! And don't forget about the little people--namely me who warmly invited you and your family into her home when your area was evacuated due to hurricanes/tornadoes or whatever it was, and who provided you with piping hot pizza delivered directly to our door, warm baths, clean towels, crisp linens, comfy pillows, lovely Pop Tart or fortified cereal breakfasts and a bittersweet goodbye!


By the way, did you know that Katherine Heigl was born in 1978? How come everyone is turning out to be younger than me? When did that happen?

STOP!!! You are so funny!
By the way, should anyone ever ask, I will be happy to attest to the fact that Hotel Mad About Plaid is a 5 Star Resort, complete with yummy wine, witty convo and 24hr access to The Weather Channel for your hurricane viewing pleasure!
Thanks for the PR!
Love to you my Gator friend!
p.s. so NOT famous!! :)

First I am glad to see that you admit to wearing the teacher jumpers. Why did we think that was so cool?

Second it sounds like your friend has a fun job one where teacher jumpers would be unacceptable.

Notice that I focused on clothing and not the fact that your friend has famous clients.

EVERYONE is younger than me. Sigh. Isn't it weird to see your peers start to become successful? There is a sportscaster on ESPN who I went to college with. Every time I see him I think about a sorority party pic I have of him where he looks like a baby compared to now. Also, just a few months ago a friend of mine had her home featured in Traditional Home. Actually you've given me an idea for a post.
