Today was the Susan G Koman 5k in Dallas. Dianne’s Circle of Friends ran and walked in memory of Dianne. It was a beautiful day for the walk too!
It was the plan three or four years ago for Becca. She staked her claim before Audrey was even born to take her to Build-A-Bear on her third birthday and yesterday that day finally came. Audrey was a tad bit overwhelmed with all the bears and people but in the end she loved it!
Here’s a video of her experience:
Boy June is shaping up to be one heck of a month.
Things got started off with Chick Fil A launching their Spicy Chicken Sandwich, something that was uber tasty.
Then the new iPhone was talked about and will be launching later this month. I can pre-order phones for Becca and I next week, something I’ve been waiting on doing for about a year now. I wanted to upgrade last year but I’m very pleased and happy I held out for this new version. Its much nicer looking than last year’s model and will be packed with cooler features like video chat/or Facetime as they are calling it. In other words I’ll be able to call Becca on her iPhone and with one push of a button we’ll be able to see one another instead of just hearing one another. Pretty sweet.
June also means the World Cup. Those who know me know exactly how big of a deal that is for me.
Last and most certainly not least Becca and I will be going on vacation at the end of next week to New York. We’re super excited about that. Plus at the end of the vacation my family comes into town for a week.
Lots to be happy and thankful for here this month. Its gonna keep me busy but it will be worth it.
Well the last few days haven’t been very entertaining around here. The weather went from decent (meaning I was back to almost wearing shorts) to cold again and now Becca is laying around not feeling well.
I think it’s mostly allergies and the cold weather getting Becca down, not to mention being around a couple sick kidos like our niece and nephew doesn’t help the situation. She’ll be back in no time though.
This week should be fun though as it is the week of my birthday (Sunday the 7th). I think however I am more focused right now on what to do for Valentines day. I’m not the best at coming up with ideas but hopefully I’ll come through! 🙂
I hope to start putting more random updates like this on here for those who do read. I’ve started working on little projects around the house like my office. We recently got a desk and bookshelf for it. Just gotta get all my random junk boxes out of the way to really get it done.
Speaking of boxes, Becca and I finally started going through some old clothes this past weekend. Hopefully over the next several weeks we can put together a few bags of old clothes to give away to Goodwill or somewhere. Once that is done we should have some open space in one of our bedrooms that we don’t use.
Okay, enough for now.
Yeah, so for a while I’ve been thinking about writing a book. I don’t know what kind or what it is about but its definitely been a goal of mine for a long time. The best ideas I’ve had may not be the best books though so who knows what it will be about.
I do know one thing though, I want to get back into some photography. I know Becca is wanting to buy a camera for her possibly, (cross your fingers) potential career move down the road. I don’t want to do it quite full-time as her but definitely something on the side.
Anyways, speaking of Becca, she and I finally got (most of at least) our wedding registry stuff done. We registered at Target, Kohls, Macy’s and for those with a little extra coin (ie the people she works with daily) at Williams-Sonoma.
I bring that up since tonight I bought a couple friends some wedding gifts. Its two weddings I’d really really like to do to in May but just can’t due to costs and work. If plane tickets were just a little cheaper for both weekends in May I’d spring for it but I just know I won’t be able to do both. One is a couple that I became great friends with in college at WVU and the other is a friend of mine that I have known since we were in diapers. So yeah, its tough not getting to go to either but I think I gifted both of them nicely. And honestly my guilt for not going to either may make me gift more before its all said and done.
Yeah, I’m honestly making an effort here to update this more with what is going on in my life. It helped when I book marked my site’s login info again. I didn’t have it on the new laptop.
Its been a couple days since my DC trip with Becca and my family. I hope to soon have photos from the trip up on here. That may take a little while as we have plenty of photos to go through here.
Also, Christmas is right around the corner (20 days away in fact)….I have no idea what I want other than a new laptop.
Congrats are in order to Sarah and David St. Louis today. They found out that they are expecting a little baby boy (soon to be named Ryan Matthew St. Louis). Yay for baby Louie and his happy parents-to-be. I know Becca and her family are excited for another baby to be on the way here.
And I was right on my prediction of them expecting a “dude.”
