has it been a while?

So its probably about time to update this thing, right?  The last six months have gone by unbelievably fast, but here is a quick breakdown.

With April came a much anticipated trip to Boston.  We were able to stay with my sister, spend some quality time with her family, enjoy the celebrations for Founder’s Day, and watch Scott’s Dad run the marathon . . .

In May we found out Katie and her family was moving far far away to AK so we had a sleepover with the kids as a kind of last San Diego memory with them.  We were chefs that made pizza, watched a little Yo Gabba Gabba and did some make-overs slash played foozball.  The kiddos were so great.   We also joined in on the Cartwright “Stylish Party” as a congrats to Katie and Andrea for finishing their programs.  We dressed up, danced, and had a fun fun time.

In June the Hamptons moved, but we found out right before they left that we were pregnant!  It was so fun to be able to share that news with the family as we were all trying to figure out how we were going to survive without the kiddos around.  (We’re making it, thanks to Skype…)

July we went to Utah for Alli’s wedding!  St. George was hot as the blazes, but we had a great road trip with Janelle, listening to This American Life and eating junk food and rocking out to the Killers.  The ceremony was amazing and the reception a perfect mix of Alli and Chris.  Scott continued his domination in the sports world at one time participating in hockey, soccer and THREE softball leagues.  No wonder he’s always tired.  😉

In August, we celebrated our 6th month anniversary.  We had a nice night out and the yummiest mud pie ever at Claim Jumper (ask for it with Cookies and Cream ice cream. YUM!)  I started throwing around some baby names, but the typical response was always a vague “hmmmm….eh? yeah… I guess that’s an okay one?”  So we decided to wait until we know if it’s a boy or a girl to get serious about naming.

September was CRAZY!  Highs included finding out our baby was a sweet little BOY and introducing Scott’s dad and Joanie to the trash that is the Jersey Shore.  Lows included one of the busiest work seasons for both of us, a heat wave that made it impossible to sleep and a few serious family illnesses.

But now – – – it is OCTOBER!  I am seriously so stoked about this.  I absolutely love the holiday season and the fun it brings.  I love the smells and the treats and all the decorations.  I’m definitely not going overboard with my crafty self, but I can’t help getting a little excited about pumpkins. (especially when they are bedazzled!)
