Our happy surprise,

Our baby boy is due April 2nd and we couldn't be more excited to meet our little one. I am now 30 weeks and time is starting to go by so quickly! It has been amazing to grow this little human and know that I will finally get to hold him in a few short weeks. I can't wait to start on this new journey with my husband and baby boy!

Life in Texas

a quick note on our life as of late: Chad & I packed our bags and moved to Texas for the summer. It has been an adventure to say the least but we really kind of love it here. My husband works a job that consists of A LOT of time away from home/me. So we get to spend our time together on weekends, where I plan our days down to the hour with texas touristy type of activities. (No, we don't go country dancing or bull riding, two things I embarrassingly may have thought most Texans do for fun). A few of our favorite weekends entail trips to downtown Dallas, searching for our favorite Tex Mex restaurants, and fishing at Lake Lewisville behind our apartment. Our summer here is already halfway over & I think it's safe to say that Texas has been pretty good to us.

San Francisco,

Oh how I love this city & the handsome boy pictured above. I was one lucky girl to spend a day last week with both. Every time I head into SF I get a little excited because I love everything about that city. And experiencing new cities/places with the husband makes everything so much better.

Over the holidays,

For the holidays this year we were able to spend Christmas in Sacramento with Chads family. Can I just say that I seriously could not have scored better in-laws. They made the week so much fun. Our week consisted of a trip to San Francisco, bowling with the family, shopping at vintage YSJ, watching lots of movies, & eating great food. It was exactly what Chad & I needed before we head back to school & back to the bitter cold of Utah (single digit weather is not okay). I hope you had a great holiday just like we did. Happy 2013!

^ New Years Eve at the parents. Chad almost fell asleep before midnight. party animals is all i can say.

Turkeyday + Birthday

This year my 22nd birthday landed right on thanksgiving. At first I was a little disappointed having to eat the traditional turkey meal on my birthday but sharing my day with thanksgiving could not have been better. I was able to spend part of the day with my family and the other half with the husbands family celebrating the entire day. I had not one but two birthday cakes (i'm spoiled, i know) all while being surrounded by the people who are most important in my life. I have so much to be thankful for, especially for my sweet husband of mine who makes me feel like the luckiest human in the world. It truly was the best way to start off my 22nd year. Hope your day of thanks was just as wonderful!
