Baby Showers and Getting Back to the Blog


I bet you all thought I’d forgotten about this blog, didn’t you?

Well, sorry.

No such luck.

I’ve been meaning to post some pictures for ages but what with months of horrible morning sickness and life with a two year old, I’ve been a bit distracted.

In fact, I think the last time I actually posted something on here was way back in February.

Five months ago.

And now that I am six months pregnant with Josh’s little brother, it’s probably time I should get back to it. I’m sure all the family will like some photos of the new little man once he decides to make his arrival.

We just got back from a trip to California, which was amazing as always.

While we were there, my mom and aunt threw a baby shower for me, which was so lovely.

It was just perfect; lunch out overlooking the ocean, fun games and close family. So relaxed and enjoyable. I can’t thank them enough. And of course it means so much to me that this baby will have some new clothes and more importantly, photos for his baby book!

Here are just a few of the pictures from the shower.

Thank you all so much for coming out and for planning all of this. This baby sure is one lucky guy to have such an awesome group of women in his life!








Welcome Home


Tim is back and we’re very happy he had a good trip and is home safe and sound.

As I mentioned before, he was only gone for a few days and was in Dubai for work, but he managed to work in a bit of sightseeing and explored one of the massive malls there on his way to the airport, complete with its own ski slope and aquarium.


He also said they have tons of American food shops like Cold Stone, California Pizza Kitchen and they are even getting a Cheesecake Factory soon. So technically, the Cheesecake Factory in Dubai is a shorter flight for us then to go to the one back in California…

But what kills me is that he didn’t even eat at any of these places. He said he just grabbed a sandwich from Subway.

Oh well. At least he did listen to me and took a few great pictures of the city on his last day. I think they turned out pretty good for being taken with a Blackberry.
