My bestie, Laura, gave me the book "Heaven is For Real" for my birthday and I was pretty excited to read it. My friend Lindy had already told me what an awesome book it was - and she wasn't lying. If you haven't read it, I strongly encourage it. It is about a 4 year old's journey to heaven while he was having an emergency appendectomy. Even if you don't have much time in your life, it is a quick read and well worth the time. And, if you want to follow the family now, you can visit www.heavenisforreal.net.
Today, Harper and I had lunch with Laura and Harper's future husband, Hayes. We met at Steak and Shake and stayed for an hour and a half just enjoying our babies and talking about lots of random things. We were amazed by how many people were there at almost 1 pm on a random Tuesday afternoon. Harper decided to make her intentions known with Hayes today - do we think it is too soon?
Tomorrow we are excited about having lunch with Melissa and Eno! On Friday, we have plans to have lunch with the entire Food Merchandise Finance group. Harper is one popular girl! She has lunch plans almost every day. And, for those of you that used to work with me (Segment team) and that work with Tony, don't worry we will get around to seeing you all too! And, Harper's grandmother (Tony's mom) is already coming up for another visit this weekend. Without kids, she only came up here once, maybe twice, a year. Now, she has already been up here twice in three weeks. We know what gets her here. HA!
Even though Harper is only 3 weeks old, there are so many things I love about her. One of my favorite things is how she grabs ahold of my thumb with one hand and my pinky with her other hand. I just love it. And, feeding her is amazing too...even at 3 am! And, I love all the faces she makes...she cracks me up! How could you not love that face?
I am so ready to get down to Texas next weekend and show this little beauty off to my friends and family. We can't wait to see you all!
