I am so happy being married and living with my best friend. We adopted our first child, Ari, in 2011 through a domestic adoption and our second, Jude, in 2014.

New Mexico Vacay

Vacation was, oh, so nice! It was great to just get away with family and do whatever we wanted. I also loved spending so much time with my nieces and nephew! They're just the best!

We didn't have a lot planned for the week; just wanted to rest and relax. But really, the town my grandma lives in is what I like to call a "pass through town". If anyone is staying there it's simply because they're just needing a place to stay for the night until they move on to a bigger city the next day. So really, there's not a whole lot to do there, but we like it that way.

We did get to do a lot of geocaching though! We got 44 in all over the course of a 6-day trip. About half of those came on our ride to New Mexico when we turned an 8-hour drive into a 13-hour drive! But it was so much fun! It was really cool to do that all together as a family. Also, Mike and I and Michael and Ashlee both reached our #100 find on the trip! Definitely fun times.

I took way too many pictures from the trip to post even half of them here, so I made a slideshow out of my favorites. Enjoy!

A side note for the adoption side of things: Stay tuned and I might have some fun updates for you all soon. The hubs had an interview with a radio station here and things seemed to go really, really well! We should know something more concrete in a week or two. If he gets this job then we can start to move forward at full speed with adoption. So prayers would be very much appreciated!

Fourth of July Weekend

The hubs and I had a great Fourth of July weekend spending lots of time with each other, family, and friends. On Friday we geocached together pretty much all day. Saturday night was spent at a friends house just hanging out watching the city fireworks show while playing some games of bean bag tossing (which I was absolutely terrible at! lol). Then on Sunday night we went over to my brother and sister-in-law's house to watch their city fireworks, but the show got cancelled. We still all got together and enjoyed hanging out and shooting off our own fireworks. It rained on us all weekend long, no matter what we were doing, but it was still a great time!

This Saturday we leave with almost all of my family to go on vacation to New Mexico. I can't wait! It's going to be so nice to just get away. My grandma lives in a teeny tiny town in New Mexico and it's always great to just enjoy the simplicity of the place.

And now, here are some pictures from the weekend. Hope everyone had a great time too!

Lots of umbrellas all around!
