We're Glad We Got Lost!

We just went up to Pennsylvania to pick up the car we bought. We were going to tour around Philadelphia (see the Liberty Bell, etc.) afterwards. By the time we finished the paperwork, it was the middle of rush hour when we got to Philadelphia. We ended up hopelessly lost, so we decided to just get out of there. We went to a gas station to buy a map. Guess who we met there? Kia, from Trading Spaces, was filling her SUV up with gas. We talked to her for a little while, and she very graciously allowed us to have our picture taken with her. She was absolutely the sweetest person! So we were glad we got lost because if we hadn't we never would have met Kia!

It doesn't look like the picture is going to work, but I will try in the photo gallery. It is a picture of Kia, James (Maidrite), and me.

How exciting Barbara!! I love that show. I guess getting lost was not such a bad thing after all. Glad that you made it home OK.
