Girls Day

So B.E. (before Ellie) Fridays usually meant lunch with my 2 of my girl friends that also have flexible work schedules. Leigh is a nurse and works 3 days a week and Jenny makes her own schedule kind of like I do. Before Ellie was born, they always said they would come over and bring us lunch so we could keep our Friday tradition alive. Well last Friday they did and it was so much fun! Ellie of course had to get dressed up for our visitors, so I chose a sweet homemade day gown made by my lifelong friend Emily Hefner's mom Miss Betsy. She is so talented and creative and I just love this smocked gown she made for her. I also love that is is long and loose which means she will be able to wear it for a while!
I'm telling you it is hard to pick out what to wear when you have so many options and it all looks good! I wish I had that problem..ha! I didn't get a pic of us eating lunch, but I did manage to snap a few of our sweet girl in her pretty gown and a few of my friends loving on her! I forgot to mention that they showed up at our house around 1pm Friday afternoon and left around 5:30!! None of us could believe it was that late, but the time really did fly by. Leigh's husband kept asking "what do yall do for 5 hours?" and she really didn't have an answer! We never run out of stuff to talk about and with a sweet baby to stare at, the time just kind of runs away from you! We also managed to keep ourselves entertained by trying a few home remedies to find out the gender of Leigh's baby. I'll keep those details to myself, but we can't wait to find out what Baby Dodds is! One more week and we will know if Ellie will have a BF (boyfriend) or a BFF (best friend forever). Daddy is hoping for a BFF...I think the thought of Ellie having a BF is scaring him already!
I can't wait until I can finally get Ellie out of the house and take her out to lunch with the girls. I'm already looking forward to manis and pedis too...but I guess we can wait a few years for that:)


  1. Ellie is just beautiful!
    Daniel and I love looking at the pictures of her. He always says, "Oh my gosh, she is just so cute." It's fun to hear him say that. :)
    Hope you're both doing well and I hope all 3 of you are adjusting nicely.
    I find out just a couple days before Leigh what we're having. So it'll be a fun couple of days when we find out and then when I know what she's having too. So fun!!!

  2. YAY!! I can't wait to hear what you guys are having. Boy or girl, it is something I can't explain. Being a mommy is the best! Glad you are feeling good. Hope that keeps up!
