New front porch furniture!

We finally purchased some new patio furniture for the front porch.  Love it! 
The swivel rockers are actually really comfy.  :)

Next up - to find a nice patio dining set for the back porch....

More babies in the family!

I can't believe I forgot to blog about my cousin's baby! 

On Feb 22, 2011 at 7:43pm my cousin Amy gave birth to her first child, April Renee.  She was 8lbs 9oz and 21 inches long.  How my 4'11" cousin had that big of a baby we will never know.  :)  If I have my relationships correct (because lets face it, it gets confusing), then April is my 1st cousin once removed while Ryland and April are 2nd cousins.

Congrats to the proud parents Amy and Rob!  You can read more about April on their blog Tales of the Goodreaus.

Princess Bride Quote-along

#93 - Attend a sing/quote-along at the Alamo

Finally can knock this one off of my lingering 101!  Malek actually found this event (to my surprise) and so we decided to check it out.  Princess Bride is one of my favorite movies from my childhood!  When we arrived at the Alamo Drafthouse they gave us some props for the show: plastic sword, bubbles and a bell.  You used the sword to fight with your neighbors during the sword fights, you rung the little bell whenever there was a 'love' scene, the bubbles were for the marriage ceremony with Prince Humperdinck (boo), and of course whenever Vizzini said 'inconceivable' you had to slap your forehead.  :)  Tons of fun!  Emma enjoyed it as well.

In Spirit at the Cap 10K

My friends are so thoughtful.  They knew I was sad to miss running the Cap 10K this year, I've been running it since 2005, so they found a way for my pregnant self to be there...in spirit of course.  After the race I always make them take a photo at one of the booths.  Here is 'our' shot.  :D
