Tea and Crumpets

Our church has a wonderful women's ministry and I have been blessed to be apart of a weekly Bible Study. Last week was our last time for the semester but today they had a free Mother's Day Out for all the participants for 5 hours!!! I had been looking forward to this for weeks and had it all planned how I would use my time. I had planned to only take Harper for part of that time but it was going to be awesome!
But then Harper got an ear infection and then it was 20 degrees this morning. So I decided we would not go and I was a little let down but it's not about me anymore. I am thankful to do what is best for her.
But we did get out at lunch time once it warmed up and had lunch with Harper's boyfriend Brody. Harper has so many cute boys to choose from but we are VERY partial to precious Brody. This was their third date and they are really warming up to each other.
Brody's mom Jennifer and her sister Jill are so fun and easy to be with. We ate at one of my VERY favorite places - Crumpet Tea Room! It was so yummy! I even got Harper a kid's plate - grilled cheese, fruit and animal crackers. And she ate it pretty well!
Brody's dad, Josh, works nearby so he came by to say hi and see his boy! I almost forgot I had never met him in person because I read about him every day and just feel like he's an old friend! ha!

Josh even volunteered to take a picture of all of us! We had so much fun!

And to continue my love fest with Belk's (post below) - on Sunday when I got out my dress boots - I realized that they were just pitiful - like falling apart. Scott said they were embarrassing and they were. So I knew I needed to find some new ones but I also know that nice dress boots can cost $100 and up. So after lunch Harper and I stopped by Belk's and I found a pair I really liked and they were 50% off and I had a 15% off coupon on top of that so they were under $40! SO excited!


P.S. You have to go and watch Jennifer and Jill's video on Hair Poofing. It will change your hair forever! And it's so funny!

I love Harper's dress! She has the best fashion ;)
I think Brody & Harper are the cutest little couple.

Crystal said...

That was a great video!! I laughed so hard!!!

The Allens said...

Aaron and I love the hair video! I am sorry about the ear infection.

Lauren @ Reading and Running said...

Awww Brody is such a cutie! Look at that smile! I think that Brody and Harper would be super cute together and it would be a plus to have awesome in-laws!

Leslie @ Lamberts Lately said...

That video is HI-LARIOUS. I've been meaning to try to do that to my hair for a few days now - I think I may do it tonight! :)

Danielle Howard said...

What a fun lunch! Harper is adorable!!! I moved from NWA to Little Rock about four months ago and miss the Crumpet Tea Room something fierce.

Crystal said...

I've already commented but just wanted to let you know you've been tagged on my blog with an award :)!!!!

Sarah Mina said...

How cute that she already has herself a little boyfriend!

Leslie said...

I LOVE Belk's too! I snag so many great deals there! Love reading your blog. Thank you for sharing your life with all of your readers!

The Mommy One said...

Cute. Cute. Cute.

Kiki said...

Thanks for the reminder that our kids are our priority and that it's not about me anymore.

After 3 boys, I still have a hard time remembering that! By the way, Levi is 13 months and if Harper would ever be interested in an older man, I have a 3 and 5 year old too!

I've been reading your blog since Harper was born. I was wondering if you did the LPM verse thing and if you'll be coming to Houston?!

Lindsay Meyer said...

You're such an amazing mommy to put Harper's needs over your own entertainment. I know that's part of the "job responsibility" but you do it with such humility everyday. Just wanted to let you know that it's a great example for those of us who want to be mommies someday soon, too!

Jenna said...

Love it!!! That is a table fun of some of the cutest, sweetest people ever!!!!

Glo said...

It sounds like you had a lovely day! I miss my children being young and it is so nice to see you gals taking the opportunity to enjoy not only motherhood but friendship. Love the hair poofing....I am Italian from the north end of boston and I could of swore that we started the big hair! lol God Bless and Happy Holidays!

Melissa Miller said...

Amanda (McNeely) Vestal said...

Neely and I ate at Crumpet Tea Room today! What time were you there? I can't believe we missed each other!

Nina said...

I love the poofing video. Very informative. I so have to try it. :)

Todd and Courtney said...

I about died during the hair poof video laughing!!! And I feel like I know all of you and could talk to you like there's no tomorrow....weird? perhaps, ha!

Jill said...

What is Belk's? Is is a southern store? I went to their website yesterday, but admit I've never heard of them before then. Being a midwestern girl maybe that's why. Fill me in.

Mary said...

Looks like a fun lunch! Harper and Brody look really cute together--imagine THEIR kids!

The 'Ssippi Scoup said...

I thought I had hit motherhood for sure the first time I got to order Bailey something off the children's menu. It was at Chick-Fil-A and she absolutely LOVED it. We just about have to order her her own food now because we joke that she can almost out eat us. haha! Harper's dress is just too cute.

Jennifer said...

"Scott Stamps!" Hahaha!

We had SOOOOO much fun at lunch today! We love hanging out with you girls!

How "Sweet" it is... said...

What a fun day! What a beautiful bunch of girls! I LOVE Belk's...haven't been in FOREVER. They have such great deals!

CCO MOMS said...

noahandlylasmommi said...

I have had the hardest time posting comments on your blog the last few days! yahoo!! Looks like y'all had a nice day. Sorry you missed your moms day out. Sometimes our LO's have different plans ;)

Sarah said...

In the first picture, Harper is looking at Brody like he's trying to make some kind of crazy boy joke and she just doesn't get it! ha! ♥

Meesh in MO said...

I hope Harper is feeling better. I had to go to the doctor today and found out I have bronchitis. I started out with a cough in church on Sunday just like Harper. I thought it was just a bit warm in there for me but I guess God knew I was getting sick for real.

My mom cleans houses. She just started cleaning for her doctor. He has a little girl who just turned one and her name is Harper. When my mom says Harper, I am like "nooooo, Harper is in AR"!

Jolynne said...

Kelly I am a reader from Ut. I just wanted to let you know about a site called GoJane.com They have CUTE slouch boots for $23 bucks. I ordered a pair! Harper is a doll!

♥Kim said...

Great picture of you gals/baby boy! :) Good deal on the boots!!!

Joyce said...

I need a bargain like that...we don't have Belks here. Cute picture of all the girls and boy : )

Michelle said...

So glad that you got to go out after all, every stay-at-home Mom needs a little time out of the house for some fun stuff. I can't wait to watch the hair poffing video, I love big hair!!

Katie said...

I could have used the poof video last week! Midwest girls need some hair help from Southern girls. And someday my little girls will love that I now know how to poof!

Yoli said...

Aw, Harper is a doll! Thanks for sharing her with us! And my looks thank you for the link to the hair poofing video! Finally - Good hair! xoxo
