Harper and I met two "blog friends" today for lunch. I have been reading Jennifer and Julee's blogs for a while now. They are two sweet, beautiful girls and I felt a connection with them because they went to the same college that I did and we know a few of the same people. Jennifer grew up in a town that I lived in for a while and her son, Brody, is 3 months older than Harper so we just have a lot in common even though I am a good 10 years older than them. ha!
If we can raise enough money in the next 18 years - Harper and Brody will be at Ouachita together so we figured this was a great first date for the two. I'm not sure about my daughter - first she tried to impress Brody by trying to out eat him in a Puffs eating contest - I tried to tell her you don't stuff your face on a first date - you pick at a salad and then say "I'm full". ha!
Then she tried to grab him. He really wasn't all that impressed. ha! He is SO cute!!! Harper needs to play her cards right on this one. ha! Here we all are!
Harper really liked Julee - she loved her pretty long hair. So much more to grab than mommy's.
(Oopsies??? Maybe they don't send them to everyone? I have no idea - I thought they did because several of my friends got them? I don't want to cause a revolution!)
Ya'll know I'm CRAZY about the Razorbacks but I'm also very proud of my true alma mater - I am SO grateful to have gone to a small, Christian college. It was a HUGE blessing in my life!
I loved all the zillion comments I got yesterday and I am reading every one of them. It was VERY uplifting to read all the thankfulness you shared! I know that several of you who went to OBU came out of lurkville and told me you are reading already or you have previously commented to tell me you are reading but it thrills me to see other OBU grads and I would love to visit all of your blogs so if you are reading this post and you went to Ouachita - I'd love for you to comment and tell me what year you graduated, what club you were in and maybe your favorite thing about going to school there! (If you have seen my college pictures - you may quickly see that Walt's was probably my favorite thing). ha! For this one post - I'm even going to open up anonymous comments so if you don't have a blog - you can still leave me a comment!!!
