sweet summer time [photo dump]

Im not going to lie. Ive spent the last week of summer watching TrueBlood starting from the first episode. Ive had friends tell me to watch it and I just never got into it. And honestly, Im not sure what made me want to watch it now, but Im totally hooked.

Anyways, our summer days are almost over and we sure did make some memories this year. We went to New Jersey, took a long road trip to Tennessee with our ending destination Connecticut for a friends wedding and some camping, i got a promotion, we started our TTC journey (officially), and many other wonderful memories.

Like summer days in the pool with old friends

We may or may not have invited ourselves to my parents house and drank all the beer out of their refridge. (thanks mom, thanks dad!)

There were nights that were sleepovers with the two best kids I know, my niece and nephew

My nephew also had his 11th birthday party this past weekend. He has become quite the little surfer dude .....

yes, my uncle jimmy was the one who couldnt stop crying (fyi, him n my dad used to be surfers back in the day)
We've also made alot of progress on the kitchen, but thats a whole 'nother post in it self. Just thought Id share some photos with you all.


preseason game

Since deciding that we were going to start trying for a baby, the hubs and I have also been trying to get out a little more and enjoy ourselves as just the two of us before it becomes the three of us. Its actually a lot harder than you would think. Especially since the majority of our spending money has been going to the kitchen renovation. But fortunately hubs uncle has season tickets for the Miami Dolphins. Just so happens were are huge Dolphins fans. So when his uncle decided to offer us free tickets and a free parking pass, we couldnt turn him down, even if it was a preseason game that doesnt really count.

So last Friday after work, hubs and I drove down to Sun Life Stadium in Miami to watch the Dolphins vs Carolina Panthers.

Turns out, the seats were pretty good. We sat in the lowest section, but the highest row next to the aisle. The concession stands we right at our enterance, and the bathrooms were just on the opposite side. We won by the way, which made it even better.


target tuesday: link up

OMG, Im loving this link up from Tara over at Fabulous bu Evil

Its all about what youre loving at Target this week. Now its hard for me to pinpoint what Im loving, because, well I.LOVE.EVERYTHING.FROM.TARGET. Seriously, i think I have a problem. I could spend all day at Target. Me, my sis, and my mom actually meet up there and spend about 6 3 hours there. Hubs wont even go with me to Target anymore because he cant stand being there for so long. And let me just tell you, I would rather him not go. I enjoy it much more without him. lol.

So anyways, since its summer, here are my summer wish list items from Target

Hey everyone, since I took this mornings red eye to NYC and am busy meeting all my new teammates  and have lots of conference calls, I may not be able to blog for a few days.
However, if you were ever wondering how me and my wonderful hubby first met (10 years ago) than I suggest you go take a little trip over to Katies sweet blog where our love story is being featured today.
