So I kind of, sort of, told Paul I wouldn't post these pics in his whites... but you guys won't tell him right? hehe. I love these. We took the pics last week for Paula's birthday coming up! They turned out really good for not being professional; some sweet lady saw us trying to do the old fashion timer photo and opt to help us! I love nice people, don't you?
Paul is gone this week, but should be home in time for Labor Day weekend. We have lots of fun stuff planned, so I'll be sure to take lots of pictures!
We had a busy and awesome weekend, but I forgot to take my camera with me everywhere we went. :( We took Audrey to the Zoo and she LOVED it; it was adorable. We had some friends over Saturday night, then Sunday we had a long run together, well, Paul did at least (10 miles... crazy guy), and then hit the beach up later that afternoon with all of our friends for some good ol' surfing! One of my girlfriends offered to watch Audrey for a last minute date night, so we enjoyed a nice dinner together before Paul had to leave this morning! Hope you all have a great week and Labor Day weekend!

Flashback, oh and some new pics!

Hey! How's it going guys? Happy Wednesday! I'm sneaking on the computer before little miss Audrey wakes up from her nap. Boy has she been napping good these days; such a blessing because I've been fighting off a cold, and I can take my naps with her! :) Just wanted to give you guys a flashback pic of Audrey when she was just 2 months old. Can you believe that's her? Oh my sweet baby girl... she's so big now!!!!
We tried surfing this past weekend, and it's probably our newly found love of a sport (don't worry football, you will always be our first). It's a lot harder than it looks, and it's very exhausting. We are going this weekend with some friends, so maybe this time we can get some pointers! Better go, I hear Audrey talking up a storm upstairs! (Oh, I have some reaaaallly good pics to post next week, but ya gotta wait until after the 1st of Sept!! Keep checkin though, cause they might just sneak on here sooner. :) LOVE YOU guys!

2 months old!

Loves her Daddy's crossfit rings!

Watching mama go "try" to surf!

Our little surfer girl already!

Busy, Busy, Busy....

Not sure where the last couple of weeks went, but we have been constantly on the go. Did you know it's August 17th???? YIKES! I am secretly dreading the day Audrey turns 18 months; I don't know why, but 18 months sounds so big. My baby girl is a toddler now. :( I took Audrey to get her bangs trimmed for the first time, and she looks so much more grown up now. I'll post some more pics later today, just wanted to give you a sneak peek of these from the beach the other day AND my score of a find at the goodwill store...

Such a happy girl.

Before... this was $10 bucks!

After!!! I finally have my sewing table! I'm working on my first pillow right now! :)

Blogger Challenged...

Um, yeah... I have been trying for weeks now to upload some pictures and every time I tried, I would get the "http failure" message. Today it worked, but only for these few pics. I promise, I'll keep trying!

Paul is finally back! YAY! And we have had a busy last couple of weeks... filled with celebrations-Paul's birthday and our 6 anniversary! We left for a spontaneous 4 day trip to Kauai last week and it was absolutely beautiful! We had so much fun and Audrey was the best baby-took her car naps like a charm and was so fun and adventurous with us. I think we would live there if we could... maybe a good retirement place? I think so!

Things are all good here. Just waiting to here from OCS mid September. Things could change a lot for us in the next year or so.

Audrey is doing wonderfully- her fav words are "shoosss (shoes), bubuys (bye bye), and side (outside). She LOVES the water and being outside. Good thing we are in Hawaii right? There are some funny pictures of her running into the ocean and trying to run right into the pool. lol This girl as absolutely no fear, that's for sure!

Burnt out + Bummed =Beach time!

So I've been feeling a little bummed out lately, kind of in a little funk. Some days are easier than others, but lets face it; having Paul gone is no fun. Good thing for me, I have the cutest daughter in the world to keep my spirits up, and of course God to keep me staying strong.

I decided after my second day of being in a "funk" I wasn't going to end the day feeling bummed about Paul being gone, and we were going to go to the beach. Lets be real, who can possibly feel bummed at the beach, AND of course seeing my sweet little girl playing in the sand. Not me and I'm sure you wouldn't be either. :) Turns out, it was just what we needed. Here are some great pictures from the last week and Audrey playing at the beach. Yay for being in Hawaii!
Two more weeks, two more weeks, ttttwwwoooo mmmoooorrreee weeeks!! EEEK!
Love you guys! :)

Yay, Audrey can eat with a spoon all by herself; well, kinda. lol!
Playing at Blakely's house!

Thanks Grandma Burt for the skirt and oneies! soooo cute! (That's the only pic I could get of her) lol!

Completely intrigued by Yo Gabba Gabba (Have you guys ever watched it? Seriously off the wall, but somehow she loves it!)

Too. Stinkin. Cute.

Ahhhh... the beach!

This is what I live for!

Friday, June 17, 2011's necessary!

Aloha everyone!!!

Sorry it's been a while since our last post; I know, I'm an awful blogger! BUT, I do kind of have a good excuse! We took a month long trip back to the mainland to see lots of friends and family and boy was it a blast. After returning back to Hawaii, it was bittersweet. It was nice to be in our own home, but was not so fun waking up to an empty house. Luckily I have the most amazing, sweet friends to keep us all busy while we wait for Paul's homecoming in just a few weeks! YYYAAAAYYY!! Did I tell you I am extreeeemmly excited? Cause I am. :) After Paul gets back, we will be celebrating Fathers Day, our 6 year wedding anniversary (Yes, I said 6, can you believe it?), and Paul's birthday!!! It will be a fun and glorious couple of weeks. No word on OCS yet; the board won't meet until August 25th, and we probably won't find out anything until the middle to end of September. I'll keep ya'll posted though! Miss you guys SO much and hope you enjoy some pics from the last couple of weeks! P.S., my sweet, amazingly talented, friend Lindsay took the last 4 pics. Go check out her blog or etsy shop sometime.. she really is SO talented!!

Not a baby anymore...

Our Audrey Ann is not a baby anymore and is growing up fast. I feel like she was just born and now she's almost 14 months. AH! Where has the time gone? Here are some cute pictures of her from the last couple of weeks. Isn't she a doll? She's still not fully walking yet... she'll take a couple steps, then crawl because she's so much faster! lol! Things are all good here... Paul put his officer package in last month, and now the waiting game begins. He leaves this next week for 3 months, so we will be missing him so much (and taking a lot of pictures)! Love you all and hope you are all doing well!
