Happy Birthday Mom!

Although my mom is undecided if she is having a birthday this year, I decided I would celebrate anyway! Cheers to you mom! I love you and hope you had a great day-birthday or not.

Happy Birthday Dad!

So I called to wish my dad a happy birthday today. I talked to mom and dad, separately, and this is what I learned:

1. Dad eats steak that mom buys but doesn't really love it.
2. Mom helps dad with opening the pool but doesn't much love it, either.
3. They both love to remind me that you don't celebrate birthdays when you get to be a certain age.

That may be the case, the no celebration thing, but pool opening and steaks! Thats the opposite of celebration in my book. I couldn't name two things I would like to do less on my birthday. Sorry Dad, I know you don't want to celebrate, but I feel bad for ya! I'll make it up to you next time I come home. We can spend the day shopping and then have chinese food for dinner :) Love you!!! Hope you had a great birthday, I really do wish I could have been there.

As you may or may not know, Josh is a HUGE Baltimore Orioles fan. He has been an extremely loyal fan since he was very young and to this day remains to be, what I would call, their biggest fan. On Memorial Day I forgot to blog (surprise!) but I did remember my camera when we went to our first baseball game together. We didn't go to Baltimore, but we did make the 30 minute drive to Kinston, NC to watch the Kinston Indians play the Fredrick Keys. The Keys are a farm team for the Orioles which was as close to an Orioles game as we could come. It was a lot of fun! We got a pitcher of beer, a few hotdogs, and really enjoyed the game. We plan to make a trip sometime this summer to Maryland to see a few games but until then we will probably just watch every single Orioles game on TV. Thank goodness we have satellite now and the MASN channel which airs every game for our viewing pleasure.
Fun Orioles Fact #1: Palmer and Brooks (our awesome dogs) are named after Jim Palmer and Brooks Robinson, former Oriole players. Wait til we have kids!

Somewhere... the middle of step #6. Maybe someday we will buy furniture that we don't have to put together. Tonight's project found Josh assembling the computer armoire for the office. Since Josh was hard at work (laying on the floor) I got voted into the kitchen. On the menu for tonight: French Dip Sandwiches and Mac & Cheese, which I handled quite nicely. This weekend we will be very busy and I promise we will have pictures! Stay tuned!

....don't take me off your sidebar links! Don't delete me from your bookmarked favorites. Don't skip over my blog and mumble under your breath about how I never blog anymore so its not even worth checking. I'm back! I have little news to share but am happy to report that all is well with the house, dogs, jobs, wedding plans, etc. We are decorating which means Josh is painting and I am spending money on things that match. I will post some pictures soon, maybe even tomorrow just to prove that I'm really back and worth looking in on again. I miss you all out there in blog world and I hope that my writer's block is gone for good. Thanks for reading!

Well, of course its been forever since I blogged so here's a quick update. I had a pretty busy week this week. Monday night I cut all of my hair off. Im still learning how to manage hair this short so please don't be too harsh.

Then, if that wasn't life changing enough, Josh and I bought a house on Thursday! We started the whole process about 5 weeks ago, but finally closed on the house today. It is also a work in progress, but here is a quick picture of the outside. I will try to post more soon, but don't hold your breath. A safer bet would be to check my dad's website (Aftermath) in the next couple of days. I think he took a few (hundred) pictures and I am sure he will share them all. Thanks for checking on me often even if I am a sorry blogger these days. But with a new house and whatnot maybe I will have more to talk about. Just keep checkin in!!
