4 Year Blogiversary!

This little ol' blog reached the 4 year mark a couple weeks ago. 
Unfortunately, my posts get less and less every year.
And it kills me. 
But obviously not enough to actually post more, so "kills me" may be a bit of an exaggeration. 

We've reached quite a few milestones over the past 4 years and I thought it would be fun to do a quick recap. 

This was my very first post in 2010.
 I started blogging when we were about 6 months into marriage and living in Florida while Mr. B was finishing up school. 
 I was a nanny/stay home wife and had way too much glorious time on my hands while living in the sunshine state.

So here's a quick recap of the past 4 years as well as a few of the most popular posts:

We were in newly-wedded bliss.

He graduated.

We moved back home. 

We bought a puppy.

The puppy grew.

::That winter we vacation and I although this is slightly embarrassing, one of my most popular posts over the years was written around this time: Bathing Suits and Butt Cracks
Always, keeping it classy around here!::

We struggled with fertility.

 We vacationed. 

We were excited

There was sickness. Lots of it. 
For 33 weeks. 

She was worth every minute.

We became mommy and daddy.

Our hearts exploded.

::Shortly after, I wrote another one of my most viewed posts:
Clearly, the heartfelt ones are the kickers::

We moved again.

We vacationed. {and I cut my hair}

We reached half a year. 

::Another most viewed post: Adalyn's Pantry. Again, the content is heavy, so please read slowly and take it all in. ::

We learned that time flies. F-L-I-E-S.

We reached a year. 

::Another popular post from this time {that I never finished}: 

We became homeowners.
{and moved again}

We vacationed some more. 

We reached a year and a half.

We soaked up the little things.

We captured sweet moments.

We snuck in kisses as much as we could.

We reached two years. 

We love where we've been and we love where we are.
And we look forward to where will be in the next couple years! 

And for the record, I'm back to the same hair dilemma...

Thursdays Thoughts

Yesterday we celebrated 4 years of marriage!! 
It feels much longer- in a good way!

We ordered take out from one of our favorite pizza places and snuggled with our favorite girl.
I love living life with these two and I wouldn't want to spend our night any differently. 

Okay, that a little bit of a lie.
But I do love living life with them!

I'm not pregnant. Again.
Happy Anniversary
On to take 3.....
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Adalyn recently turned 20 months!!!
You better believe the party planning has started and I may or may not have already made some purchases. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

Adalyn is officially potty trained, with the exception of night time. 
I will write a more detailed post soon, but she was ready and made it easy!

It's ridiculous how fast summer goes by. We only have a couple more times to enjoy the lake.
I'm thankful for seasons, I feel like they come at the perfect time. 
With the exception of winter. 
That's last wayyyy too long. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

We love Puddle Jumpers. 
Best floaties. ever. ever. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I don't feel like cooking, but there's chicken in the fridge that will go bad if I don't.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

We had fun blueberry picking this morning. 
I enjoyed it so much more than strawberry picking.
Like, tons more. 

It was a little cool out and the perfect reminder of what's to come.
But not yet. 

 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

I never update my phone and the other day I finally did. 
And of course, now one of my lifeline favorite apps isn't working. 
If it ain't broke....

And now, Instagram is stuck on waiting. 
I've seriously tried every.thing. to fix it. 
Next up is to restore my phone to factory settings. 

In the meantime I feel like my life is stuck on waiting. 
I feel lost. 
I feel like everyone else is probably lost, too. 
No one knows where we are, what we are eating, what Adalyn is wearing...
Not sure how they're surviving, because I'm struggling. 
More than I should be....

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

I love that my parents have farm animals- feeding the goats with Mimi is something she looks forward to. 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

I'm in love with her and this picture

the end.

Weekend Rewind

I found this toy on craigslist for $5 and she loved it!
Later that evening Auntie A & J came over so Mr. B and I could go out for dinner for an early anniversary celebration!
We put her to bed and enjoyed a delicious dinner! 
And we managed to not talk about Adalyn the whole time. 
We had a wonderful night out!
I love my hubby.

Somebody turned EIGHT months!!
And looks like such a big girl!

We enjoyed another beautiful day on the lake. 
We had fun being anchored at the sand bar and enjoyed time with new friends and family!

And we also got the sweetest text from Uncle CJ
Love that little man.

We went to church, out for lunch with some friends and spent some time at the farm.

Enjoyed some applesauce

Her new favorite face to make..

Then Mr. B went to see Batman. 
{my heart breaks for the victims and their families. I can not even imagine. I am praying for peace and healing to all of those involved.}
Adalyn and I stayed home, had an early tubby and bedtime {Love Sunday nights!} and I edited some pictures from the day of her in her cute little romper.

Love summer weekends and I am sad that they are quickly coming to an end!

Road Trip, Wedding, Reunion

On the 4th of July weekend we took Adalyn's first road trip.
A 9 hour drive to the middle of nowhere Erie, PA. 
Adalyn did great and stuck right to her schedule!
I couldn't resist buying her a new book. 
Mickey + Road Trip= Meant to be!

We arrived at the hotel around 4PM, unpacked a few things and went for a swim with daddy.

Followed by a delicious dinner at Texas Roadhouse. 
Munched on some yummy rolls {and salad, and steak and loaded sweet potato and gained 5 pounds}Got back, had tubby, read bedtime books and called it a night.
Our morning started off with her first munchkin from Dunkins. 
She approved.

Then we were off to an indoor water park! 
She loves her tubby time and she didn't disappoint us with loving the water park, too! 
She started off with just a few smiles, I think there was so much around her that she was taking it all in. 
She is such a water baby and had a blast!

We got lunch on the way back to the hotel, she took her nap and then we were off to celebrate Alice and Tyler! 
Alice was beautiful and they were both glowing. 
Weddings are such special times filled with so much love and joy. How can anyone not be smiling?!

Mr. B stayed in the hallway during the ceremony since little Miss Adalyn is quite the screecher these days. 
Weddings are pretty much the only time that my college friends and I are able to get together. 
So these weddings are always extra exciting!

The reception was held at a beautiful old theater. We enjoyed catching up with our friends, good food, love and dancing!

For kicks and giggles....
Yes, my gorgeous friend {the next bride to be!} is that tall.
Yes, we are that short.
Yes, our boobs start at her hips. 
So sad.

Last year we reunited at Jules' wedding

And this year, they're expecting!

My first roomie and sweet friend, 5 years later...

We have another wedding in October and we will get to meet their sweet baby girl! 

First and last dance for the bride and groom

Speaking of dancing....the books forget to inform you that when you become a mom you lose most or all sense of rhythm. 
I was never a good dancer, but I had some moves. 
I was nearly in tears when I realized that must have snuck out with Adalyn on November 21. 
So us mommies stayed in the back and enjoyed the freedom to let loose where few could see. 

Lesson learned that a wedding past bedtime + sleeping for an hour+waking up when time for bed= wired until 12:30AM. At least it was the hyper/funny overtired!
Which then resulted in a little someone sleeping in our bed...and not wanting to wake up to get an early start home!

We started a journey back home and took a pitstop at Mr. B's grandparents house in Buffalo. They haven't met Adalyn yet and we also had some little 2nd cousins to meet!
We had a great visit, she loved her great-grandparents and her 2nd cousins and I wish we could've stayed longer!

It's no fun living so far away from people you love!
We are looking forward to our next reunion in October to celebrate Lauren and Nate!
