Life Updates

The fact that I don't have "real" photos to share with you should just go to show how busy and tired I feel...!

I thought I would check in today and give you an update on what is going on in my life these days.  I have plenty of things around the house to share with you but my energy level has been extremely I feel like I am coasting through maintenance mode. 

Allergies in Sacramento are really bad this year...pretty much every conversation I have with people, the topic of how terrible their allergies are usually comes up.

On top of that my husband has been working a lot of crazy hours.  This week he worked graveyard and though I am thankful I am around when he is home during the day to hang out with him, it is effecting my sleep schedule and energy level. 

It seems like all I want to do is sleep.  And please, I will assure you, I am not pregnant!!! ;)

We recently got a new camera...a Nikon D800.  My husband is very happy about this.  He is shooting my friend's wedding in a little over a week that I am a bridesmaid for.  Wedding season is about to get into full swing for us!  

I am still hanging out a lot with this little guy.  As my nephew gets older, I am enjoying his ability to play more and focus his attention on one thing for a longer period of time.  This makes for a lot more fun as well as a much happier auntie.

Have I mentioned how good this is for me?  I am definitely one who likes to plan and prepare ahead for things...and being with this guy makes me constantly thankful that when the time comes to be a parent I will not be in completer utter shock.

I think we are going to have a fun summer...

I went on my first bloggy blind date on Sunday with the beautiful and talented Tiffany from Living Savvy.  It was so fun to sit across the table from someone who shares so many of my same passions...home decor, blogging, and husband's who put up with our madness!  I felt so blessed to put some realness to this whole blogging thing.  It is sometimes so much safer to sit behind my computer and interact with you all...but doing it in real life fills my heart even more! 

I started working on my life book {finally}.  I think I mentioned this once months ago.  But the plan is to make one large album from my birth to the year before we got married.  I am going through all of my old paper scrapbooks and taking out photos I want to keep for the album.  I am then taking pictures of them to put them in digital form and will eventually make them into a photo book.  This project will take a very long time so I will be sharing more details about it as I go along.

Some of you have also kindly asked about how my dad is doing.  He is past his six week precautionary stage so everything from the surgery should be healed up and he can start returning to his regular physical activity.  He finally gets to drive himself again which he is very happy about and will be returning back to work soon.  Him and my mom have been heading to the local mall each morning to walk for 45 minutes.  This consistent exercise has been a really good thing for both of them.  He has his follow up appointment with the cardiologist next month to check on how everything is going. 

This Saturday I am heading to the San Francisco area to celebrate with my two best friends.  One is having a baby shower and the other is celebrating her birthday.  We will also be hosting two Mother's Day meals on Sunday with our family.  And then next week will be wedding week.  It's going to be fabulously busy around here!

Lots to share but no time to share it!  Be back soon!  xo
