  5. Trisha said,

    Ok The truth! She had me at #18. I only wish I knew her!

    Trisha – we must meet someday! Perhaps at an LSU game! I believe my husband is as good friends with your brother-in-law Ben as Charlie is with Doug…

  7. Trisha said,

    Ingrid- I am sure there will be a time when we meet in person. I have heard many good things about you, from not only Sarah but also Merrilee. An LSU game is where you will meet Charlie; if I am nice he will allow me to come with. He says I am not worthy to go in person becasue not only do I not know the fight song I have no interest in learing it. I feel so much lighter after that confession!

  8. ingrid said,

    I too have heard great things about you! I am sure we will meet someday!!! I’ll get your email from Sarah and send you a link to my blog…
