Retirement




We have finally made it to my last day working. Even though I have only been back to work for 12 weeks, part of me feels like it was a lifetime. I am an emotional person and like to do my share of crying for all kinds of crazy reasons (like the wedding on the Today show yesterday:) The girls I work with are wonderful amazing friends who threw me a "retirement" party today to help ease the pain of goodbyes. We had pizza, bread sticks, pop, cookies, cake and brownies- now if that's not a party I don't know what is. I even got a little bit of work to take home with me! As you can see they got me the cutest flower pot with all my perks from work in it. My pringles, dunkin donuts coffee, gum, scrapbook supplies, a good book to read and a gift certificate to the limited- what more could a girl ask for? I was not very good at getting any pictures of me and my girls but I know I will be back to the credit union to visit and will have to get some pics. I will miss them terribly but truly not as much as I have missed Ethan the last 12 weeks. I am excited and scared to start this new chapter of my life- I know God has good things planned for me as a stay at home mom and I am ready and open for it.

Summer Days












The last few weeks have been to chilly (by my standards) to enjoy the pool too much. We thought today it was going to rain but it ended up being a beautiful afternoon so Ethan and I went to Mom's to sit poolside. Ethan loves being outside and we had lots of fun. We put our feet in and as long as his feet were not in too long he enjoyed it. He mostly liked watching Mom dip her feet in and Aunt Alli. I love the water and hope that Ethan will also. Tomorrow is my last day of work so I am hoping next week will be just as nice and we can get over to the pool a little more.

I have decided

To start a blog for our family. I love staying up to date on everyone's happenings and thought we should jump on board. Friday, I will officially be staying home with Ethan so I should find plenty of time to keep everyone updated with pics and post.
