hello...anyone there?

So after dropping off the face of the earth (also known as El Paso, TX), I've decided to update my blog a little. I'd like to say I'm back...but it's more my desire to do anything except make dinner right now.

That said...let's begin!

Waaaaay back in March we took a trip to Arizona with my in laws, and it was a blast. The smell of oranges was in the air, the place we stayed in was amazing, and the company was the best. Not to mention shopping, Cheesecake Factory, two rounds of golf, and sushi.

Come May we had the most amazing (hopefully not a once in a lifetime) experience...a trip to Chicago without our children! Grandma Mc was a saint and came to play with the girls for an extra long weekend while Kev and I lived it up in the windy city. It was cold and rainy (both welcomed changes to the climate we are used to), and we got to go with some of our favorite people since the guys were all attending an ortho conference.

My favorite things: breakfast at Yolk, Chicago shopping, Gino's Pizza, breakfast at Yolk, all the glorious trees, sushi, dim sum, running in the rain, and breakfast at Yolk...again.

Some of the coolest ladies (moving our partay from Texas to Chicago!)

And of course my favorite guy...

The girls are of course older now and have somehow become partners in crime.

Ry also had her first dance recital. She was so cute and funny to watch. It's weird I have a kid that is old enough to be in a dance recital.

And lastly I have gained 10 lbs in the past 6 months. It is partly due to my indulgence of ice cream every night but mostly because I'm growing another person inside me and that tends to make you plumper. And in case you haven't's a boy!
