American friends in Britain, where would you be without them?

One cold night on the 31st of January, the three American “She’s not From Yorkshire” gals got together for one big hoopla celebration in York, England. There wasn’t any big occasion per se–there were no birthdays, graduations, new jobs or babies or marriage announcements. While walking around the ancient city of beautiful York they probably got excited and talked a bit louder than the others in the streets, their enthusiasm brightening up the dark York snickleways. They wore wide grins that got lots of stares– were they drunk? Nope– but their laughter echoed through the quaint cobbled-stone streets.
Well, who else could they rant to about UK tax struggles, their British lurve-life and their wish about really wanting some flowery Cath Kidston wellies even though they don’t live in the countryside?? Without their American-gal-we-hear-your-pain-support-system they would be lost and very lonely indeed. But secretly each of these American women also needed their Betty’s Tearoom fix…and they even waited a lousy and cold 27 minutes outside to be seated.
Of course, of course, after trying to figure out the meaning of life when you’re approaching 30, they started talking about all of you lot (that phrase still makes them giggle!) They decided they needed a mega change on the blog– a new headline pic! Yes, that was what they needed! Its was their 3 month blogiversary a couple days ago and in honour of having 8,000 readers in 3 months… well, they decided it was time for a makeover (see above pic– you did notice right?!). Also, Peaceful found other blogs that was using the their old picture on it– including a blog that was written by a Las Vegas stripper. They needed to set themselves apart a bit. No offense to strippers using the same blog pic as them. Kassi the stripper was a really sassy one and seemed very successful.
So, Happy Birthday to “Shes not from Yorkshire” and were glad you’re with us!
