Hoots and Hollers Comes to North Cackalacky

Did y'all hear those big ol' Texas hoots and hollers across the nation? Yeppers that was Holli from Holli's Hoots and Hollers who was travelin' all over this great country of ours on business, but carved out some time in her busy schedule when she stopped in North Cackalacky to visit little ol' me. We have been blogging buddies for about three years but never met face to face.
So Holli's business trip took her to the capital city of Raleigh. Well what's a girl like me to do from a small beach town two hours away? Look for an excuse to go shopping in the big city of course. And that is exactly what I did. Yea I went way over budget, but I don't get out much. Then it only took me 45 minutes to find the hotel which was 3 miles from my current location because I'm too stoopit to figure out how to use a GPS, but I finally made it.  When I met up with Holli she was hell bent on findin' the nearest Harley store so she could buy her hubby a t-shirt from the Carolinas. Dang, despite growing up in York, PA which is home to the largest Harley manufacturing facility, I had nevah been to a Harley store. But I got a feel for the joint real quick. Like they say, "American by Birth. Rebel by Choice". Not only was Holli's shopping excursion a success, I was able to check out the new free cycle trike she will be getting. Oh yea baby!
After a three hour dinner of telling each other our entire life history, we were wiped out. Of course we were also wiped out the next morning from stomach pains in the middle of the night due to something we ate. OUCH! However, what fun it was to connect with someone I met in the blogosphere! I'm sure Holli is hootin' and hollerin' all over Dallas about now 'cause I know she is glad to be home!

  1. Connecting with a blogger sounds great, aside from the stomach issues

  2. It is so much fun, albeit a wee bit nerve-wracking to meet a blogging friend! Sorry to hear about the stomach issues, though. Eek.

  3. That sounds so awesomely fun. We've always wanted to meet a fellow blogger, but as of yet have not had the chance.

    And I've never been in a Harley store either. But as a thin, clean-shaven guy with zero tattoos and a full head of hair, I feel like the exact opposite of their target demographic.

  5. I think they also make Peppermint Patty's in York.
    NOTE: I have no idea if this is true. More than likely not.

  8. I haven't met anyone yet in real life. South Carolina is a dull state.

  9. That's awesome! Shopping usually means going over budget! Maybe next time make 2 budgets. hahahaha
