Yeah this is the first post since we moved to NJ but it's been snowing! My classes got cancelled today so I get extra study time!


This morning

Me not studying

Blogger added the snow :)

Also Thanksgiving and my birthday

Pumpkin gingerbread trifle

Frank, Heather, Maddie and Frankie during dessert after Thanksgiving

All of my birthday presents. Aaron got me a body pillow and new cookie sheets, my in laws got me some much needed cutting boards, my friend from school Emily got me some herbal tea and Maddie made me a card and gave me 50 cents (so thoughtful!). We had the 'party' on Friday since we were driving home on my actual birthday and it was lots of fun.

Cross Counrty Drive

Remember how we literally drove across the country? Yeah we're awesome. Here a few pictures.


Another M state but I don't remember which one it was. 

We also got to spend some time with my cousins in Chicago. We went to a cool park with Tanks!
The figures were a photo bomb by JD
Aaron, Katie and Ali

The weather was absoluely lovely and the garderns were huge and very green.

Unfortunately we didn't get a picture of all us together but maybe in two and a half years :)

Last Seattle Adventure

Our last Seattle adventure was at the Chihuly Glass museum.  It was really rather incredible. Momma I am going to take you to one of his museums someday because I think you will find as fascinating as I did.

Hmm so we have a lot of pictures so I'm going to post a few here, of my favorites and if you want to see all of them send me a message and I'll share them with you through google+ since that seems to be the easiest way.

This is the ceiling of the room

All the reflected light was really impressive

Super thin, almost transparent nested bowls

Probably my favorite piece.

We really have 97 pictures in the album so if you're interested in seeing the rest let me know in a comment.

More posts on the way and probably a blog name change :)

Moving Fun

Well moving isn't that fun. I spent the last few days packing for about 8 hours straight. This is what our apartment looks like right now.

We really don't have that much stuff; there are only 4 boxes not in these pictures.

Next post will be in our new place in NEW JERSEY!!

Last Fall Aaron and I decided we wanted to try camping so we bought the stuff for it. Unfortunately the weather turned right after this decision and we didn't get a chance until two weeks ago.

We drove an hour and a half to Beckler River Campground, pulled right up to a little site and set up camp 30 ft from our car and 20yds from the river. It was beautiful! Green everywhere, rushing river right there and sunshine. We set up camp, forgot bug spray and drove to the gas station, a 15 min drive, and bought some.  Perfect for newbie campers, which despite camping often in our youth we both are. (Aaron is apparently VERY allergic to bugs. His bites were quarter-sized in less than a minute)

We read our books in the sun by the river, ate mostly cooked tin foil dinners and played with fire. Bragging moment: we got our fire started with one match on our first try and kept it burning for like 4-5 hours. We rock! When it got pretty dark we also played with Aaron's fancy camera. Here are the pictures. Enjoy!


Note the tin foil dinners inexpertly put in the fire. Good thing we used precooked ham.

Late night camera fun 

Not super interesting arrangement of photos but at least it's posted.
