My new "What To Expect" friend....

Ever since I got pregnant with Olivia in 2006, I have been part of the "What to Expect" message board, which is a spin-off of the famous pregnancy book "What to Expect When You're Expecting", also known as the "pregnancy bible" since so many pregnant women read it and swear by it....
Well, it turns out that the website has an awesome community of pregnant ladies and wonderful mommies, some of which have become my greatest friends. Most of them are from the "July 2007 board" from when I had Olivia (I love you girls!!! you know who you are!).. and a few more from the "July 2009 board"....
I still frequent most of these ladies to this day and have even met some of them in person.. However, most live in different cities and states, which is sad!...
Well, today I met a new "What to Expect" friend, who happens to live in Pembroke Pines.. I was so happy when we found each other online and I'm even happier now that I met her in person.. I felt like we clicked right away.. it was great...
Her name is Liz and she just had her first baby (Andrea), who was born 6 days after Gaby, which is great since we're both going through the same things at the same time. We had lunch at Panera Bread and had such a wonderful time telling stories about our lives and getting to know each other... I'm so lucky to have met another special friend through the site...
We agreed on meeting again and I'm so looking forward to it... I believe we could be friends for a long time...
Thanks for a wonderful lunch, Liz!.... see you next week??!!
