that girl is back!

So after a few weeks of me time and pondering the true meaning of blogging, I'm back!! I really had to think back and remember why I even started my blog. It wasn't to get comments and followers or to win the latest giveaways. I started my blog to make an online scrapbook, to document my little family's life together. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the comments and followers but that's just a perk :)
It was important for me to focus on what's really important in life and I'm sorry but blogging just isn't one of those things. It is a hobby though!

So what have we been up to the last couple months? Well, we've kept up on our weekly date nights, we've both been crazy busy at work and Kyson is growing so big and getting so smart! Yes my three year old can count to 100. Isn't that insane?! I like to think he's the next Einstein :)

Summer is just around the corner but if you live in the south, it's already here! Today's high in Texas was 104... I got myself quite the tan going on which is awesome since I sail away into the waters of the Caribbean in 18 days!! Speaking of summer, has anywhere else been invaded by butterflies?? They are EVERYWHERE! And they aren't just any butterflies, they're the kind that dive bomb you and go straight for your face! It's freaky!

We leave for our vacation in a week and a half! If you live in North Dakota or Florida we will be there shortly. Let's play! I can't believe my brother in law is leaving for Africa for two whole years in less than two weeks! I'm going to miss that kid.

Dave celebrated his 25th birthday. Hello insurance discount! 

So that's what been going on with us. We've just been soaking up each other! I'm excited to blog about my break in detail but I need to ease back into this haha :)

Thank you everyone for been so supportive and patient.

 Also I am dying for a new look to my blog but I am not computer savvy.. at all! So please send me in the direction of someone fabulous who will give me a blog makeover!! I'm pretty desperate :)

  12. YAY!! My bloggy bestie is back!! Oh, how I've missed you! I've been so lousy about blogging and socializing in general altogether with school keeping me so busy. I am so happy that things are going well for you and that your little family is as happy and adorable as ever. Let's figure out the details of when we can meet up- I assume you'll be flying into Bismarck?? Happy to have you back and I'm so sorry for being so anti-social lately!! :/

  15. So jealous of your cruise. That will be so fun! It's always nice to think about why you started your blog. I am where you are, it's a perfect journal. Much easier than writing in a book. Have you made a blog book yet?
