Summer is Flying

I apologize for not writing for a long time but I do have excuses.

Alex's injury
Alex has managed to injure himself a lot this summer.
  1. It is summer and I am trying to enjoy every moment.

I am busier than normal, attending weddings, watching Alex play softball, and going out on more date nights.  So far this summer Alex and I have gone to Summer Nights to listen to bands, we went to the drive-in movie theater, and have hung out with friends a lot.   Summer is not the time to stay in-doors and type.

  1. We have been busy traveling. 

Alex had an unexpected trip back to Wisconsin to attend a funeral and then we enjoyed an awesome weekend in Nashville with a group of some of our close friends from high school.  I am sure I will detail this better in an upcoming post.

  1. Most importantly, I’M PREGNANT!

The biggest excuse I have of all for not writing is that we are expecting our first child December 30, 2015.

Being pregnant, I have never felt more lazy in my life and I’m okay with it.  I have officially proclaimed to never cook another meal for the entirety of my pregnancy and so far I have stuck with it.

My to-do lists for my days off have shortened from an average of 8-10 items to maybe 1 or 2.  I also nap now (unheard of for me).

I want to warn you that future posts will include details you might not want to know so read with caution.  Now that I am in the second trimester and not sleeping every single extra second that I can squeeze in I promise to update the blog more often.

This was how we announced the pregnancy to our families.
