blast from the past (0 weeks, 0 days)
the next day my mom took me to chateau elan for a spa day. another perfect distraction from missing jesse. we had massages, manicures, pedicures and a delish lunch. didnt feel like taking any pics of me and mom in our robes and no makeup, but trust me that it was delightful and i felt so spoiled!
our 2 couple-BF's the fortunatos, dan and lukas (right), and future-hunts, lena and elliot (left-wedding on 8.22.09: save the date). they took me to longhorn for a triple date. i was escorted my my fetal-son since jesse was still in mexico. love them! lena and dan are proof that smart friendvesting pays off. (i had a REALLY awesomely lame pun about wall street and the economy and investments like these, but lukas and elliot shamed me out of inserting it). i am officially too big for my own non-maternity shirts and have resorted to wearing jesse's...seen here in kelly green
elliot, lena, keight/judah, danielle, lukas (32 weeks 4 days)
on the way to pick up jesse from the airport on saturday night. this is me with 40% of jesse and my 3rd family, the harpers, at our favorite and most frequented mexican restaurant. this is garrett, the oldest son (a freshie at GT), and beth, the beautiful harper-mom. there are 2 more younger harperino boys not pictured, and of course rick-the dad, our campus minister and former/future boss from georgia tech CCF. we LOVE this family and have adopted ourselves into the clan. we go to the beach every summer with them (this will be the 5th year!) and hang out in fayettville with them approximately 3 times a week (average). the boys will be awesome big brothers for judah.

and then jesse came home and all was right in the world (including jesse's raging tan) it was a hard 8 days without him (180 hours is you were counting them one by one like i was!) but i was kept busy by all the wonderful things above plus a few not pictured like dinner with my uncle blaine and aunt jo, a lunch date with jesse's mom, and a spend the night party at my house + attending birth class with my mom.
