This has been one of the best weekends ever! I'm still on a "girl" high and that alone could keep me happy all weekend but we have had so much fun with friends this weekend.
Friday night- we went to eat with Jenna, Chris and Brayden to celebrate a week of finding out what our babies are. Jenna and I are both so excited - it's made even sweeter by sharing the frustration of infertility and knowing what a blessing these babies are. Jenna had been baby shopping and she brought me the CUTEST gift - Baby Bling Pacifier and pacifier clip. Will Harper not be precious sporting these two things???? I can't stand it.
I have been looking forward to Saturday for weeks!!! I took a little road trip south to Little Rock to visit three of my oldest friends.
First I met up with two of my best college friends and roommates - Leigh Ann and Kandi for lunch. We stayed at lunch for almost 3 hours just catching up. I love these two girls so much.
I can't believe we are in our mid 30's and married and are all MOTHERS (well almost!) Also - why I am so short? :-)
Kandi and her husband, Lance, are building a house in the neatest, old section of Little Rock. It is going to be so neat - I can't wait to see it! We drove by to look at where it will be and then stopped by their house to see Lance and the girls. Aren't Kandi's girls cute - look at that white hair???? I wish I would have had time to go see Leigh Ann's family. (Hi Derek!) That will have to be saved for another day. I was only in Little Rock for a few short hours and it just wasn't long enough. I could have stayed with them all day and I wish I could have seen other friends like Jill H., Katie, Sarah (if ya'll are reading this!)
When I left K&L - I went to visit one of my oldest friends - Jamie. I could have stayed at her house all day too. Jamie is one of the sweetest friends I have ever had and she has two precious children. Her husband, Lane, is in med school so he was off studying and we had a great time visiting. Her kids, Rhett and Alexee, luckily weren't shy and they talked to me and played with me and I was just eating it up!!! I so wish I lived closer so we could spend more time together.
She's also one of the most talented people I know and she made me this precious bow holder and I could just dance around with it I love it so much. It's also going to be perfect in the nursery. I'm starting to think when I get the nursery done - you will never get me out of it. I already just go in there and sit and smile and there is nothing in there. ha!
Today we got to have lunch with our friends Mike and Kacy and their 2 month old baby Wells. He is also a top prospect for Harper. They gave us one of the most fun things I have ever seen and a perfect gift for a child of ours - SEC matching game!!!! I told them that we would start Harper off at birth with these as flash cards and that she and Wells could have contests as soon as they can talk. They will be the two children in the 4 year old Sunday School class talking smack during football season and reviewing games while the other kids are drawing puppies. ha!
