Where Has the Time Gone?

I can't believe it's been so long since I blogged!! I blame it all on my parents. :)

My mom and dad came to town Wednesday night and stayed until Sunday. They are on their way down for a few weeks in Florida, so they stopped here for a couple days and will stop for a couple days on their way back home.

I've also realized it's hard to blog when you are a mom and working!! I just don't know where the time goes.

It was nice to have my parents here. It gave me an opportunity to get out and get some stuff done - specifically my hair. (Jay was starting to call me root girl!)

We had a "date night" Saturday night. I was looking forward to getting out with Jay when my parents were here. I had grand plans for a nice dinner (at a nice restaurant) and then maybe a movie (there are a lot of movies out right now that I would like to go see). Did we do that? NO! We had to go to a state-wide political fundraiser. I did get dressed up (which was fun) but we were then in a room with 1500 other people, eating the worst pork chops I've ever had in my life, listening to politicians talk. Not exactly what I was hoping for - but we did get a night out.

I'm way behind in reading the blogs - I'll try to get caught up soon! And, I received some wonderful gifts from my Secret Blog Pal. I promise to take pictures and post soon!!!!!!

And - here are some more pictures of the reason why you come to this blog. I really need to take some more pictures of him.

First of all, Alex is precious! Can't wait to meet you all in person!

False alarm on all the snow we were supposed to get, huh? :) We did have our Spanish class with the LFC group and it was a lot of fun. Not sure I will be ready to use what I learn when we travel though...
