At blogging lately. And if I'm being honest - it's not lately - it's been the past month pretty much! Since vacation.
Since we returned from Seattle and Vancouver it feels like our lives have been a whirlwind!
We went right back out of town for MrHoppy's little brother's (say that 10 times fast!) high school graduation over Memorial Day.
We were back to work, MrHoppy was interviewing, taking tests and running paperwork all over the city.
I don't know what my excuse has been... Keeping up with real life while he was doing his thing?
Then we had "The Break-In" (shudder) which resulted in ordering a new front door, the door not fitting, MrsHoppy having a melt down over the lack of security in our home, a new door being delivered and installed, our alarm company coming back and SUPER securing the place. I'm still working on being comfortable there, especially when I'm there alone.
Then last weekend I was gone from Friday night to Sunday mid-day. I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with my sister and nephew while our husbands went on a boy's camping trip. We relaxed, painted our toes and used my new tanning mousse, St Tropez which is awesome by the way! I lavished love on my nephew and we discussed baby names for #2. Saturday we had a baby shower for a high school friend and then a baseball game to celebrate one of my best friend's 30th birthdays. Sunday we hung out and my Mom came over to help me with my ongoing baseboard painting project. We got a lot done! It was much needed girl time and the best part about our husbands going out of town.
Lastly, blogging has been something I do in my down time since MrHoppy was gone so much. With his new job he is home much more and finding the time to blog has been hard. I haven't been ordering or editing photos either. We've just been spending time together, making healthy dinners and enjoying our new life.
It hasn't been without stress though. We'll be on a tighter budget for 6 months or so until he gets a raise. My sister and her husband are SUPER awesome budget makers so they are nice enough to help us out tonight. We aren't used to running such a tight ship so it will take some getting used to.
All in all we are doing well. I'm still reading blogs and keeping up with everyone, I just haven't found time to blog about our own crazy lives lately. A Vancouver post is up next. Now I just need to get those photos organized...
