Today has been a busy but a WONDERFUL day! First Harper slept until 8 a.m. - which is the latest she has ever slept! Yeay! Then we got ready and we headed up to our church. I'm on the church finance committee (yes - I'm a total adult now!) and I had to meet with our youth minister to go over his budget. We have such an awesome church staff. I'm so grateful for them. His wife is my friend Maegan and the other two ladies who work in the youth office (who I jsut LOVE) all held Harper and entertained her while I met with the youth minister. She ate up the attention.
Then we headed to meet some sweet friends for lunch. The six of us all met in high school, college, as neighbors, in church or the internet. We all have crazy connections and we get together probably once every month or so for lunch and I always have the BEST time! This is Harper's boyfriend Brody. We just LOVE him.
All of us. We ate at this new place in Fayetteville on Dickson Street. It's a grilled cheese restaurant. Seriously. And it was SO good. I had a sandwich that was parmesan and mushrooms and I don't know what else but I could have ate 10 of them. And Harper loves grilled cheese too! I love Fayetteville- it's such a fun college town.
After lunch Harper and I ran by Target and then finally came home late this afternoon. I think she was glad to be out and about because she was SO happy all day. And she never even took a nap the whole day. I just love doing things with her!
I have a set of 12 botanical prints that are framed behind my dining room table and I had the idea for a while that for her party - I would frame all of her monthly pictures! So last night I did that. I used the same scrapbook paper that I used making her banner and framed them all. I just have to take her picture this week for her ONE YEAR and frame it in that last spot. I thought it turned out really cute! Scott and I were having so much fun looking back at her early pictures. We can barely remember her being that little. ha! I was laughing when I told him "When she was 1 or 2 months old - I thought it was SO hard. And all she did was lay in her bouncy seat or swing or still on the bed" and then when she started rolling I thought it was so hard - I had NO idea. And Scott said "Yep - and you think it's hard now because she is crawling....in a few months you will look back and say - it was SO easy back then!"
