An Important Announcement!

Well, I have been a complete and utter Blogger Slacker for the last 2 months or so...BUT, I do have a good reason (well, at least I think it is a good reason) :)
Baby #2 is on his or her way come October 21st! Yay! With this exciting news comes complete exhaustion! So...the last thing on my list of things to do has been to blog (sorry for those few that follow)!

We are so thrilled. On February 14th, I decided (with the urging of my husband) to take a pregnancy test. I knew in my heart that I was....but I needed confirmation. So, 6 minutes later and two tests later....
We were on the journey from being a family of 3 to a family of 4! Chloe is so excited. She talks so causally about the baby. It is kind of funny. I guess she came to terms really quick with the whole idea! She is going to be the best big sister! She even has a cute shirt to prove it!
I have had a lot of emotions the last 9 weeks...but the main one is excitement. I am ready to pick a name and find out the sex....and decorate the nursery! I feel like these are going to be the LONGEST 7 months of my life. BUT, I have to keep reminding myself to enjoy every day and every minute with my only child for now...because before long, it won't just be me and Chloe....there will be a tiny little person to share the love with!
I have to say....I still have not figured out how I am going to be able to love someone else as much as I love this face. I mean...I know it will work itself out, but I just don't think I will have that realization until he or she makes his or her grand entrance!

Fun in the Sun

We have been loving the sunny weather lately! Chloe was excited to get out and ride her many bikes! She is getting good at riding her big girl bike that Santa brought her :)

More fun with the kiddos!

We had another fun filled weekend with friends (again, this is a post that needed to happen a while ago). We went over to Adrienne and Travis' house for a fun BBQ. The kids had a fun time playing as usual! Here are a few pictures...
Chloe, Jack & Addison
& Alec too!

Ashley with all the kiddos!

Showing us their 'flip'...monkey see, monkey do!

Catching Up...NOLA!

The last weekend in February, 5 of us girls headed to New Orleans for the weekend. It was fun. My girlfriend Ashley was running in a half marathon and wanted some supporters to tag along. I was happy to oblige! We hit up a lot of the well known places in NOLA--Bourbon Street (of course), Cafe Du Monde, Mother's Restaurant (really Yummy Po Boys), Muriel's...we ate a lot of good food! It was a fun time! Thanks to Ashley's Mom and Dad for hosting us girls two nights! We had a fun road trip! Looking forward to doing it again! Here are a few pictures from the weekend!
