It's seriously embarrassing how long I've left it to post about my favourite peeps but there was no way I wasn't going to document the momentous occasion of staying at the TUCKERS!
Let's just start with....oh my goodness!!! It was absolutely magically surreal! Sarah and I have been the best of blogging buddies since I started this blog! Back when George and I were living in Nottingham and Sarah & JB were gallivanting around Europe! This was like 5 years ago...so I felt like I Sarah and I were some kind of long lost sisters reuniting!
That being said, I was super nervous. We stopped at a supermarket in Palmetto just before getting there, to pick up some wine, beers, flowers and chocolate (and some treats for Lola - the most hilarious dog ever) which allowed me to really appreciate the fact that we were STAYING OVER at the TUCKERS! Seriously, how cool is blogging!
As soon as we arrived and were greeted with the warmest of hugs by Sarah and the famous/most adorable Tuck my silly nerves vanished and we had the best afternoon of all time! We chatted, drank beers & wine (only George and I because Sarah announced she was pregnant!!! Soo exciting), went on a stroll around the charming neighbourhood, played with the Tuckie (the most happiest, lovliest, friendliest, funniest child of all time) and just caught up on everything with what felt like one of my oldest friends! It was sublime! It was also incredibly humid and it still remains a mystery to me how Sarah could look like a complete goddess regardless while my hair was a frizzball and my makeup completely melted off.
Then it already got to 6pm and JB came home from work! We met JB!!!!! (Brittany was jealous haha). I know it's hard to believe but these two are even more cool, perfect & fun in real life than anything you'd see online! JB grilled up some amazing steaks with okra and brussels sprouts and it was sensational! Just what we needed - a home cooked meal on a big roadtrip will always go down a treat but this was extra amazing because we were chilling out in Palmetto with the Tuckers and Tuck! I know I keep saying it but omg...SO COOL!
We stayed up chatting with Sarah and JB for hours before heading off to the comfiest bed ever. In the morning we woke to a crazy storm and watched cartoons with Tuckie - it was so cozy, I really really didn't want to leave!
Thank you so much Sarah, JB, Tuck (& tiny Wesley James)...we had the best time ever and cannot wait to repay the favour when you come to visit us in Sydney!
