i had yesterday!!! my friend Lisa(way to the left) called me Monday asking me if i wanted to go see Secretary Condoleezza Rice Tuesday morning at the Embassy. Tuesday morning she shows up with Tracy(the smiley middle one) bringing gifts-silly me kept forgetting it was *my* birthday. I was thinking that I am off with the girls to see Secretary Condoleezza Rice, maybe lunch, then back home. Nope, these two had a day out planned!
We arrived early enough to be right up-front to see Secretary Rice, which was a thrill. After she spoke she shook hands with the crowd. While she was shaking hands with the crowd Tracy & Lisa were trying to talk me into taking a photo as she walked back by. If you haven't caught on-I hate to be in photos, lol!! I just take them!! The Secretary's assistant must have noticed us fussing about it, and he asks what were we up to. Then he asks "is there anything I can help you all accomplish". Me not getting it-"accomplish???" We then figured a photo would be perfect!!! Tracy also adds that it was my birthday. Secretary Rice wished me a happy brithday & took a photo with us!! It was unreal...I wish Lisa was in the photo more...but it was so crazy!!
are they too cute??!!
