Oh, hi there. We're still here. kind of. 

Little sicky for a day

This is how he responds to seeing himself on my phone

I really would write about something but life has been painfully uneventful. I do have some exciting new adventures on the way though. 

Tomorrow my husband and I celebrate 6 years of marriage. God is so good. And we 
honest to goodness love each other more every year. When we first got married
I thought I loved my husband the most that I ever could, but I am shocked at how much
more love for him fits inside my being. I love him beyond words. 
So to celebrate this great big love we have for each other we are taking Saturday off from
being parents, and heading out to enjoy some delicious sushi and then most likely coffee and desserts.
But mostly, we'll have real uninterrupted conversation (which is my favorite time).


We are taking our very first (gasp) family vacation! Like ever! In 9 days we will be headed to the coast with our best friends for the week. I am so super excited and a little bit nervous. I will most likely not get any sleep while we are gone - since my kids have really only ever slept in there own beds.... BUT i don't care. I want to live a little, ya know? Not taking a vacation for the last 4 years has aged me like 15 years, at least.
So I am making lists of all the necessities we need to tow along with us. 
And doing lots of yoga to shape up for my week long bikini outfit.
And day dreaming of walking along the beach with my husband.
My babies have never seen the ocean and I couldn't be more excited to see their reaction - they already love being in the water... but water and SAND- that'll be heaven to them. We got an amazing condo that is on the beach right near the pier. Sigh. Needless to say 9 days sounds like a long time to wait for this adventure.

I hope this is the start of many more family adventures. I can foresee us getting addicted to the idea of vacation <3 Maybe even world travel will be in our near future (fingers crossed).

Oh and... just one more thing

Tonight we are going to check out some cars. For me. Just me. And just maybe I wont be a stranded stay at home mom anymore. Deep breath, I'm trying not to get my hopes up. But eeep!
