I'm back...

Well, I guess the moment the warm weather hits us here in the north we don't like to waste a second of it, which I'm using as an excuse for being a total blog slacker. Our summers here in WI are beautiful, but very can it possibly be half over:(

We've been pretty busy around here...I think life with two little ones will do that to you. As of June 3, we now have a 3 year old living among us. I really think the day Knox turned 3 something changed...a newfound independence/new attitude. Of course we love him all the same, but there really is something to this magic number 3:)

And, as of July 5, we no longer have a twenty-something in our household. I sadly said goodbye to my twenties and turned the big 3-0. I'm working on embracing that number, but I think I'm doing a better job of denial. I did have a really great day with all my family at the lake. My wonderfully sweet husband surprised me with the best birthday cake I've ever had. He knows how much I covet really good wedding cake, so he ordered me a cake from one of the best wedding cake places in was soooooo good!

The saying on it..."Happy First Anniversary of your 29th Birthday" is from one of our favorite shows, "Scrubs". I was thinking I might just turn my birthday into an anniversary from now on. Actually, I think now that it's come and gone I'm fine with 30. It's really just harder for me to accept how fast time goes. Wasn't I just 20? How can 10 years possibly be gone in the blink of an eye? This just means I will be 40 even faster...okay, enough depressing thoughts. I am working on embracing today!

My cousin, Renee, was so sweet to get a picture of the four of us...the last one was over a year ago!!

Okay, now that I've rambled on about nothing, I have to mention something that was embarrassingly upsetting to me. Yesterday, I open up Yahoo and see that Angelina Jolie had her twins...oh, a boy and a sweet...what!...the boy's name is Knox!! I almost fell out of my chair. I don't necessarily feel proprietary about Knox's name, but really...did the most famous people in the world have to name their son that? I'm thinking after they have their 12th or 13th child, nobody will even know what his name is. Okay, now I feel a little better getting that off my chest...I hope I don't sound like a complete jerk for getting upset over this.

Hopefully, I will be back again before 2 months is gone:)
