Our family just got a little bigger.

1. Gloomy day at work.
2. My grandmother turned 86 this year.
3. El Saltillo.
4. My spirit animal.
5. Up close and personal.
6. Ducks fly together.
7. Team Building.
8. Lots of knots.
9. He cleans up nicely.
10. The newest member of our little family.

We all have busy lives, right?  We have to-do lists for days upon days, color-coded calendars for each member of our family, errands to run, houses to clean, and projects to push through.  So it's easy to see why I could've easily drove past this matted little guy you see in my eighth photo.  I found him wandering the streets, took him in, cleaned him, and my fiancĂ© fell in love with him while I was at work.  So we decided to keep him and call him Scotty.  Andrew likes to refer to him as our "trial run", lol.  He is doing well so far and luckily is house broken.  Thank the lord.  The only thing we do notice is he does not like us playing with his toys.  Hint the last picture where he is using his toy as a pillow.

Until next time...

St. Patrick's Day.

1. St. Patrick's Day in the park.
2. Double date.
3. Such a sweet couple.
4. Showing some love.
5. I enjoy receiving it also.
6. Another obligatory picture of our fun day out.
7. Me and the bestie.
8. Fried Pickles.

I apologize for my lack of blogging friends.  I've been a bit preoccupied with life and I told Andrew I'm really slacking on my photo challenge.  I have a month of catching up to do so bare with me.

About two weeks ago we got out of the house and went to Biloxi for the St. Patrick's Day celebration.  The weather finally warmed up down here and it was such a lovely day of drinking, a parade, and catching up with friends.  I was lucky to have a few friends in the parade so I caught some good throws and hopefully will have the opportunity to ride in a float next year.  I was in a parade a few years ago in New Orleans and had such a fun experience (even though it did last for over 6 hours).  I hope everyone had a great holiday like we did.

Until next time...

unapologetic. living bravely. being your true self. a lot of people will take this quote to be connotative of something negative, that being unapologetically who you are means you walk around offending people or making them uncomfortable. this couldn't be further from the truth. being who you are is about letting the beautiful and unique qualities about yourself shine so brightly that you are never mistaken for anything but who you really are. the opposite of fake ness. genuine. true.

We should all strive to be a little more unapologetic.  I've only recently started being this way the past few years and maybe it does come with age and feeling comfortable in your skin.  It comes at different times for different people, but don't be ashamed of who you are or who you endeavor to be.

Andrew: I love watching him play with kids.  He's a natural (unlike me, haha).
Me: Playing on the train.

basically basic.

1. Handy men.
2. This and that.
3. Place for my memories.
4. Organized our messy foot ware. 
5. Family dinner.
6. Tunes.
7. Chance.
8. Charlie.
9. One of my favorites.
10. Yum Yum.

I don't know about everyone else, but I had a pretty good weekend.  My dad is in town and was able to help me and Andrew decorate our apartment.  If you know us, you would know we are a pretty sad pair when it comes to DYI.  So it may not be much, but I think our first place together is shaping up nicely.  We're still going through a bunch of boxes and our closets trying to get rid of stuff (that's another post that's coming soon) since we do live in a one bedroom/one bathroom.  I will say this though… I do enjoy purging through all the junk I've collected over the years.  

So besides the DYI, we mainly lounged around the house watching old SNL reruns and a funny movie called "Coffee Town".  I'm hoping once the weather gets nicer Andrew and myself can escape to New Orleans for the weekend for a change of pace.  Mainly because this wedding nonsense is already taking its toll and we need some time away from the planning for our own sanity (namely mine). I hope everyone else had a relaxing weekend as well.

Until next time...
