Great Sunday!

Today has been a really good day. We went to the doctor this morning and everything went really well!!! I saw a different doctor than normal and he was SO very nice! I feel real good about everything so we'll just see. Scott and I had to be there early and then go back later for follow up. So in between - we went and ate breakfast. We ended up at the Village Inn. Somewhere we had never been. It was like we had walked into the 1960's - but it was pretty good. I got strawberry crepes. (It was no Mimi's - but good!)

After the appointment - Scott went home and I decided to just kill some time before I met up with some friends. So I sat at Panera for a while and did my Bible Study and then I went to T J Maxx and Target.

When I was a senior in college at OBU - most of my best friends had graduated the year before so I became good friends with a sweet group of girls who were two years behind me. They were all Tri Chis with me. The six of them are still very close and they get together once a year for a weekend. This weekend they were near by me so I went and joined them today at lunch at one of the girl's houses so I could see them all. I had so much fun seeing them! They are all very sweet, Godly girls who I love being around.

Here we are in 1995 during Rush: Cari, Allison, Allyson, Me (styling in those jeans), Amy and Melinda

And here we are today: Me, Gina (not pictured above), Allison (mom of 2), Allyson (soon to be mom of 3), Amy (mom of 1), Melinda, and Cari (mom of 1).

Our lives have changed since college but it's amazing how you can just pick up with friends you haven't seen in years! I am SO very blessed by all of my friends!

I don't I know you, but I read your blog on a daily basis, I find it very inspirational. Alot of times if I'm having a bad day I read your blog b/c it helps me. I thought of you this morning, and pray that everything works out and you get to have a baby soon. Being a mother is such an awesome feeling and exiperence.

So glad it went well! And what a fun day, seeing old friends. We seem to go to Mimi's after "those" appointments, too!

I think I have that same dress you have on, except mine is purple. I bought it after being inspired by your Gap dresses post! It doesn't take much to make go shop. :)

How funny! I love seeing old pics of all our 'sisters'! Gina was my Financial Counsellor through med school. She made my life so much easier! It was uplifting to know that we were "sisters" even though we were different eras. I didn't realize you gals were friends. So fun!

I'm so glad things went well at the doctor. It was so fun to see your OBU photo. I just ran into Amy in Thailand! Small world.

Adrienne said...

I don't know you, but have found your blog by blog jumping! Anyway, we have so much in common. I love food, fashion, friends, etc. but mainly I have made that trip to the dr on Sunday morning for an IUI 4 times. I live in NWA too and I think I know which doctor you are referring to! So many prayers your way! I know what it's like girl!

Julia said...

So glad it went well!!! I will pray that everything stays good.

Serah said...

We'll keep praying for you all!

I really enjoy reading your blog and have never left a comment before. You have great decorating and cooking ideas. I live in Alabama and am a stay at home mom of 2 girls. I LOVE to cook and try new recipes also.
You will be in my prayers in the coming weeks.
