Wedding Week

My best friend from college got married yesterday. This week has been busy with all her wedding festivities. Tuesday: bridal shower. Thursday: pre-wedding dinner. Friday: sealing ceremony and reception. I'm so happy for Cory (and just a tad jealous Sean gets to keep her as a roommate forever!) 

I loved getting to spend so much time this week with all these lovely ladies. It's hard to think about us growing up and apart, but I'm so thankful for the special memories and bonds that will keep us connected forever.  Love ya'll!

A Trip to Texas

At the start of the month, I was able to go to Texas for a few days to see my family and tell them about our little baby on the way (!!) I am so grateful I got to see my parents & siblings (minus Jakey, who is currently serving a mission). I had been missing them so! While I was home, we ate at Alamo Cafe (twice), grilled burgers at home, shopped, watched American Idol, sun-bathed in the backyard, picnic-ed in the park, spent a day in Fredericksburg, played and tanned and napped at Boerne Lake, flew kites, visited with extended family, attended a baptism, admired the bluebonnets, ate a yummy Easter feast, and celebrated the life and resurrection of the Savior. It was a happy trip for me and I miss these guys already! 

(so gorgeous!)

The only downside was JD had to stay back in Utah to study and go to school. It was lonely to be apart for almost a week! Dang it, when will I get lucky enough to have my husband & family living in the same state?!

Confession. The real reason I've been so unproductive in most other areas of my life is because I've been really productive in one: baby making. Hooray! Our first little munchkin is due 10.11.12 and we're nearly bursting at the seams with excitement!
