Life Lately

Happy Memorial Day!  Thank you to all of the service personnel who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, as well as all active military and veterans for putting yourself in harm's way for us!

Well, goodness!  I did NOT mean to take a week and a half long hiatus.  There are various reasons for that, so let's just catch up by looking at what life has been like lately!

-My parents came to visit!  Last weekend, my parents flew down from Virginia to see our new house and tour our new city!  Oh, and to see the grandchild, of course.
We spent lots of quality time together, showed them around (including where both of us work/will work), ate lots of good food, and overall had a great visit.  Plus, on that Monday before they left, my parents helped me clean the whole house.  How nice of them!

-Baby Fish and I took a road trip! 
From Tuesday through Thursday, we were in Daytona taking care of some things to finish out our move.  I went to both schools so that everyone could meet the baby girl, as well as attended the coaching meeting so that the other math coaches could do the same.  We also went by the youth group meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday night so that the kids could meet her, too. It was pretty exhausting with so much running around, but Baby Fish was a champ!

-I got cleared by the doctor to resume all normal activity.
The whole point of going to Daytona was to go to my 6 week post-partum appointment.  I wanted to keep this with my OB/GYN that did the C-section since she knew what the incision looked like and everything.  She said everything looked great and that my scar should actually look good cosmetically, as well, because of how flat it is healing.  Woo hoo!

(By the way, Baby Fish's birth story is coming this week!  It'll be two parts, so keep an eye out)

-We went to the springs for Memorial Day
Baby Fish took her first boat ride!
So did Tequila!
It was fun to go hang out for a day and to get some sun!  I did actually wear a bikini for the first time since having the baby, so I'm making progress :)

-Baby Fish is becoming so much more alert and active!
We've had so much fun with her over the last few weeks!  Tequila has also gotten more in to being around her, too!
She's so cute and growing up so fast!  Crazy!!

And that's what we've been up to lately!  Today, we will probably head to the pool to get some sun and do some grilling this evening.  I hope y'all have a great Memorial Day!

Question for you: What's been going on with your life lately?


  1. Congrats on being cleared to resume all exercise activities! I know you're excited to get back out there!

    1. Thanks! I SO am--I went for a run today, in fact!
