This is Sipsey. Her mom, Lauren, and I were pledge sisters at Auburn. Thanks to blogs we have been able to really keep up with each other and all of our life happenings. I love that about blogs (and facebook). Mary Selwyn LOVES to look at blogs with me and see the pictures of all the kids in the other families I keep up with. Lauren's blog is one of her faves because of that fabulous picture of Sipsey in her pig tails that used to be at the top. Sipsey always makes the most hilarious faces in her pictures and MSN could look through them for days and never get bored.
Well this week we Mary Selwyn had the opportunity to play with the one and only, real live Sipsey! I don't think she could have been more excited and must have asked me one million times when she would be arriving. Even though they have never actually met, both Mary Selwyn and Sipsey insist that they have been friends forever. The girls had the best time spending the afternoon together playing in the sprinklers and just being silly. It was such a treat for me to get to visit with Lauren too. I haven't seen her in several years but it felt like we see each other all the time. It was a super fun play date and Mary Selwyn and Adeline have talked about Sipsey and when she is coming back to visit ever since. I don't have the heart to tell them that she lives 9 hours away. They are both a little dramatic and I don't think they would handle that news very well. Although Lauren and I knew each other long before the blogs, I consider Mary Selwyn and Sipsey "blog friends." It's like a new type of pen-pal. (: Thank you Lauren and Sipsey for making time to play with us during your visit to Alabama. We so wish you lived here!!
