About Us

My photo
We met over 8 years ago at church as Shaun was walking in and I was walking out. The few words exchanged sparked an interst that kept Shaun coming back. When we FINALLY began dating 4 years later we soon knew there was something special here. Our first year quickly flew by and we both decided we never wanted to spend another year with anyone else or without each other. We married in the place where it all began on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11) and gave birth to our beautiful daughter Ava Marie on September 22, 2011 our next little one, Clara Rose came 16 months later on February 11, 2013. This blog began with our preparation with our wedding and has entered into recording the days and events of our newlywed life and new motherhood.

7 Quick Takes Friday

1.  Every inch of my house screams "Ava's been here"

2. Although I sigh deeply at the thought of cleaning up each inch of it... again... and AGAIN ...and AGAIN ...and again. I love this little munchkin way too much to get very upset.
3.  We're taking advantage of the last of the summer days

(SOOooo not afraid of any of the gross stuff.)

Any time your diaper looks like this... you've been HARD at play!

These are probably illegal...
I know that disturbing sea grass is Illegal, so we quickly dunked in the ocean to wash off the sand and headed out... 
...RIGHT after she peed on me as I was opening the car door to get a towel.  ...Oh!  The JOYS of motherhood!
4.  Birthday Party is coming up.  Still open to ideas??? C'mon people!  I need your ideas!!!

5.  After waiting all week for a less windy day with no luck, I tried to take a picture that looked like this today...
and as soon as I headed outside, the balloons blew into the grass and went
 *pop* *pop* *pop* *pop* *pop* *pop* *POP*

...ok, so we'll try for another day. ...sometimes my creativity doesn't always turn out as planned.

6.  Let's not discuss my "Yarn Balloon" Failure.  It did NOT look like this when finished.

7.  Shaun & I celebrated our "1st date anniversary" a day late and went for lunch today.  The restaraunt that we went to for our first date has since closed.  It used to be a small popular place.  Actually one of the most popular in the city.  Sooo it expanded.  Bought a super big place and started over there.  I don't think people were crazy about the size of it and missed that "homey" feel.  Then the economy tanked and it closed.  BUT recently the owners bought out another restaraunt right around the corner from our house (2 block walk) and essentially kept the same menu (including our favorite dinner there!) off we trotted with Ava in the stroller to enjoy an anniversary lunch at "sort of" the same restaraunt that we had our first date in.  It was great!
