Friday For A Friend

GUESS WHO? Did you think I was gonna miss this fabulous little party of guest blogging over here? No way!
I'm Lisa, better known as The Bumpkin On A Swing. Any friend or follower, of Trish, is a friend mine. Let's get this little party started....Crank it up...This is the ringtone you hear when The Pink Preppy Lilly Girl dials down south...deep south.....

I think I'm last in this fabulous group of guests bloggers that have been here this week. You know what that means right? She's coming home, I can't begin to tell you how excited I am. We will talk for hours, and it will feel just like I was there..

You may have read Trish and I tease each other about our secret Tumblr pages before in the comments sections of our blogs and yours too.
We like so much of the same things that we were Tumbling all over each other, so we made secret pages from each other, to keep the element of surprise alive.
I've been saving these for just the right occasion, and it's here today!
Trish, here's my stash missy maam.........girlfriends everybody enjoy! Visit me on Tumblr by clicking HERE.

Do you stop by here for pretty pictures, Lilly updates maybe? Well if you do, you are missing the best part, get to know this jewel of a woman, reach out to her, she'll reach right back.

With Trish, there are so many endearing qualities, a classy lady, a whipper snapper of a business woman with good advice, my biggest cheerleader, a happy when you need it, an atttidue adjustment when you need it even more,

The best part is the giggles, by far..........

I love it when My Captain calls me at work and says,"A box came, it's got pink and green Trish design on it!" The "Trish" design is Lilly, and he doesn't call them Lilly dresses, he calls them "Trish" dresses. Too funny! She embraces, My John's rough around the edges, another reason to love her in my book. We love our couple time with Matt and Trish. Come back, Come back, Come back to New Orleans......

She spreads the sunshine so thick, you have some left over for when you really, really, need it. It's been 10 days, and I still full on smile at just the thought of the things she says.

Can you imagine how tan she is after a week in Mexico? I think we all have the same sentiment of jealousy to say about this, but since I'm over here today, I'm stifling the harshness a bit......

I can't wait till Sunday, I really need some "Trishy Time"

Trish lives it to the fullest, no doubt about that!
That's the way she rolls!

We haven't got around to doing this yet, but ohhhh I can feel it coming on soon....She's so tiny, she'll go higher, I just know it.

You know I knew we had a special bond when I discovered we shop exactly the same. Peek, Scan, Price, and Decide. She keeps the power shopping train moving along, and I hate a lolly gagger when I'm shopping!

Sometimes we just need someone to say, "No, get this one, that other one makes you look like a slut." Trish and I keep it real, don't you love having a friend you can do that with?

Well, it's time to ride off into the sunset now, ya'll do come and visit me at the swing....

The Captain, and I would love to have ya!
The Bumpkin

    You two are Soul Sistas!
    Love ya both!

  22. What a fabulous post, Bumpkin (Lisa). It sounds like you two have a fantastic relationship. It really is special when you find true friends. They don't come around very often.

    Even though I only know Trish in the blogging world, I understand every thoughtful word you wrote about her. She does have the ability to make a person feel better about themselves and the world through her comments. I've gotten some great advice from her, too.

    Loved all the images!

    Enjoy that phone call! :)

    Welcome back, Trish. Can't wait to hear about your vacation. :)

  23. This is full of love and sweetness. As I read this post, it made me think back at all the memories with friends and for the friends I have made through blogging. How special a true friend is!

  24. I loved this post. I think I need to get in on one of these sweet hangouts of yours... I'm not far! Except you don't want to compete on the swings with me... I will attempt to go over the top rail just to win. Watch out ladies!
