Fantastic time in Nashville!

It was a fantastic weekend in Nashville! I love, love, love, love my college girlfriends! God truly blessed me TWELVE Augusts ago when I met them all. I am confident that 12 years from now we will all still be trying to meet up. This summer was the weekend with the largest attendance.
Roll call please:

Karie Fouts Fager
Jenny McCormick Martin
Janna Shero Gustafson
Clair Wietecha Patton
Joy Richardson Carroll
Erin Nordin Harsh
Leslie Daniel Echols
Lyndsay and Max Magar

We ate, shopped, ate some more, lounged by the pool, ate, talked, talked, talked, talked, talked, ate, walked downtown, ate, slept (but not much), talked, talked, talked, and finally, ate. You can see, we had our priorities in the right places. My camera was super lame this weekend and decided to demand a new battery pack each time I turned it on. Thanks to Ashley and Leslie for supplying me with pictures to share with the world. Hopefully, I will be receiving other pics later.

Friday afternoon...lunch at Corky's (at fave of Mrs. Lemaster's)

Clair and me (Clair was in charge of getting the hotel...thanks Clair!!!!!!)

Dinner Friday night at Buca di Beppo's. So good! Everything is served family style. The annoying waitress (who wasn't even our waitress) sat down to have her picture taken also. You can tell by our expressions that we do not welcome her in our photo.

Dinner Saturday night at Big River Grille...Clair, Leslie, and Janna

Karie, Jenny, Erin, and Lyndsay

Ashley, Joy, and me

Expecting moms: me (Oct. 1 c-section), Leslie (due Oct. 15), Ashley (due on Oct. 8, but scheduled c-section around the 1st), Erin (due Feb. 17 (I think!) )

Breakfast Sunday morning at Pancake Pantry...we had already dropped Ashley off at the airport...we missed her!
Sweet Max Magar! He is 6 weeks old and a wonderful baby!!!! When he cried, you could hardly even hear him. He was a perfect "token male" at our weekend!
Again, it was wonderful to see everyone and I am already looking forward to a possible Colorado weekend next summer! I love you all and am so thankful that God made us friends!!!!

Glad y'all had so much fun! Did you cut your hair? It looks great! I didn't know Leslie was pregnant. Is this her second?

Brad, Amy & Sadie said...

So much fun!!! That is awesome that you ALL get together like that.

I recognize Clair - we went to Houston together one Spring Break campaign... 1997?


Jenn said...

I'm so jealous -- it looks like you guys had such a great time. All of you look AWESOME! I can't wait until my friends and I can get back together -- the last time we tried was 3 years ago, and I couldn't go because I was too pregnant. I would have loved to have been at YOUR gathering to catch up with those girls, too. I'm glad you had so much fun!

Girlfriend time is so important. I have a "girls weekend" planned in three weeks! Glad you had fun and pics were cute.

Kim said...

Nicola and James said...

Looks like you guys had a great time! It's really great that you all make the effort to keep your girls weekends going.

I'm so glad you posted the pictures of all the ZP girls! I'm not sure you remember me - I was a freshman when you were a senior - and I got married the next year, so I was a little obscure. BUT, you girls were the reason I pledged ZP, and it is wonderful to see all of you after a few years. If you're interested, you can check out my family blog at
