Week 15

April 8, 2012 - We're back on the road again today, so it's goodbye, mountains, and unfortunately, goodbye Devin too. It's not a bad drive though - mom and I had fun listening to our books and eating bad food. Yay, road trips!

April 9, 2012 - I miss this face today, so I put it on my iPhone background. I have been showing him off to all my friends today. They aren't quite as impressed with him as I am.

April 10, 2012 - If you eat a meatless dinner, is it okay to finish the Tagalongs? I'm going to say yes, yes it is.

April 11, 2012 - I completely realize what a dork I am, but I am crazy about my onion goggles! Jack got them for me a while back and I get so excited every time I have to chop onions and it doesn't affect me at all. I used to have such strong reactions to onions. Not anymore!

April 12, 2012 - Happy birthday, Jack! Today my husband turned 33 years old. He came out to my work and we had lunch together at a sushi place, and I made him one of his favorite soups for dinner. Pretty low-key, but I had a great time celebrating my friend!!!

April 13, 2012 - Tonight my friend Joanna and I went to a BikeMS top fundraiser event at a Rough Rider's minor league baseball game. We didn't even make it to our seats or watching any baseball! We hung out in the MS pavilion and visited the whole time. So much fun!

April 14, 2012 - Tonight we went to Jack's college friend Jason's wedding. During the reception he sang to his new bride, Rebekah. So sweet!

Week 14

April 1, 2012 - Today we had lunch with TJ and the rest of the taekwondo gang before TJ had to leave town. We have such fun with that group!

April 2, 2012 - Some days, you just forget to take a picture-of-the-day until you're about to go to bed. But look, isn't he cute?

April 3, 2012 - Today we had a bunch of tornado warnings. I was working from home and Jack cancelled classes, so we were safe, but Owen was nearby at Saxby's so I made him come over to our house too. We actually had a really fun afternoon together!

April 4, 2012 - Last night (well, this morning, at 3:30 a.m.), I had just laid my head down on the pillow when my mom called and said that my sister-in-law's water had broken, so we packed in a hurry and headed to Colorado today. Her labor slowed down tonight, but it's nice to be here! We started cleaning their house today, since they only moved four days ago and they had barely had a chance to unpack.

April 5, 2012 - I woke up to this today - Ajax was literally pushing me out of bed. Funny dog. My sister-in-law's labor has basically stopped now, but we spent the day cleaning like CRAZY. Their house is really starting to look great!

April 6, 2012 - Today is Good Friday, and a great one for me, because I got to meet my nephew, Devin Jett Crawford. I am completely head-over-heels crazy for this kid. I can't wait to buy him many shiny things in an effort to become his favorite aunt.

April 7, 2012 - Today we spent all day at the hospital with Shane, Cassandra, and Devin. It was so much fun soaking up every second we could with the kid. I can't wait to come back when we have more time to stay.

Week 13

March 25, 2012 - We left Las Vegas EARLY this morning, as in, "we got 2 hours of sleep last night" early. It's nice to get back earlier, but these flights are kind of a beating after a long weekend! It was pretty easy to sleep on the plane, though.

March 26, 2012 - Today was my Monday off, so Jack and I went to the morning showing of "The Hunger Games." It's been a long time since we have been to a movie, and since we both just read this, we were really excited about it. It was fantastic!

March 27, 2012 - Our house's cleanliness really takes a beating when we get home from vacations.

March 28, 2012 - I recently discovered the game "Draw Something" (Basically Pictionary for phones and tablets). It has been SO MUCH FUN playing back and forth with a bunch of my friends. Even more fun in person today with Eric, since we share an office.

March 29, 2012 - I have been taking Maggie on long walks after work every day (it's good for both of us) and we have really been enjoying soaking up the extra daylight and enjoying the lovely surroundings that I somehow miss most of the time even though they're right outside my door. It's also a good opportunity to listen to my "This American Life" podcast (see also: I am a giant nerd).

March 30, 2012 - Maggie is just SO cuddly in the morning. It makes it hard to get out of bed sometimes because she's so cute!

March 31, 2012 - We had such a fun evening tonight! We took Jack's main instructor out to a steakhouse because he earned it from his last testing numbers. We had an amazing meal and then met some more friends for drinks afterward as well. TJ is also in town, which is always super-fun.

Week 12

Week 12

March 18, 2012 - Today after Jack and I checked out of our hotel (sad), we headed to the Dallas Aquarium (which was PACKED!). After we got out of the big crowd though, we had such a fun time looking at all the fishes together! (And the penguins! And the birds! And the flamingos! And the CHEETAH!) I love time with this guy.

March 19, 2012 - We had some pretty crazy storms tonight, and as always, Maggie got very, very nervous about it. She basically climbs on top of me and insists that my hands do nothing, nothing at all, except hold her and pet her. It makes doing anything else pretty difficult, but I must admit, I kind of like how cuddly she is too. Crazy messed-up-in-the-head dog.

March 20, 2012 - Myth: If you work from home, you will have time to do more housework. See also: Our dishes tonight. Yikes.

March 21, 2012 - I ordered my bridesmaid dress for Ellyn's wedding tonight. It's not this one, but they used this one to size me.

March 22, 2012 - It's our anniversary! We have been married four years today. To celebrate (and to compete at a National taekwondo tournament), Jack and I flew to Las Vegas this morning. He got us a BEAUTIFUL suite at the Palazzo. He really does spoil me.

March 23, 2012 - Today Jack competed at Spring Nationals, and he won first in forms and second in weapons in the Master's ring. He's almost annoyingly talented, but he makes me proud.

March 24, 2012 - Today was anniversary celebration day! Jack took me to Mario Batali's restaurant for dinner (WOW, I think that was the fanciest place we've ever eaten) and then to Jersey Boys (WOW, that was one of the best performances we have ever seen!). Everything was perfect.
