Care for an update?

Life has been a whorl wind so the updates have been late. Weekends are usually for adventures and as of late they have been the same adventures because we have gotten comfortable. Movies. We see a lot of movies as of late. We love to go to the movies and sometimes I even stay awake for them!

Ive been so tired as of late. Really run down. Let this be a lesson, Kids, if you don't take care of yourself then you will start to fall apart. I could sleep anywhere and poor Jonah is so sweet about it. I slept through Avatar 3-D, Sherlock Holmes, 2012, and more. i cant even remember all the movies Ive slept through as of late. I've also started to feel a little icky. I miss the family and I'm tired of not having any time with Jonah. I'm tired of not being able to clean my house or make dinner. I avoid my kitchen at all costs these days. I use to love to live in the kitchen. It's just been frustrating. This is not what I imagined.

My knight in shining armor has been amazing. I'm so crazy about my Jonah. We just celebrated our one year anniversary and it was fantastic. We decided no gifts and maybe we would start a vacation fund- we haven't yet. {We still need to celebrate Christmas with our families. Gotta save that money.} Our anniversary was sweet. We went to Union Square in Manhattan and went to this amazing Barnes and Nobel to kiss in the travel section- that's where we had our first kiss. Poor Jonah was sick sick sick. But we still went to eat and we watched Book of Eli. It was a very sweet anniversary.

That clock that is ticking loudly would be that darn biological one. Wow, I thought women were kiddin when they made the baby comments. Jonah and I have a plan and we are staying on course! But if someone dropped off a baby on my doorstep I would be the most maternal thing ever! We would be in trouble! I need to see my babies in Virginia. Get my baby fix. I hear a baby cry in the office and I am completely distracted... need... a...!!!!

Lets pray for my headache to disappear forever...

Well here are some photos from our anniversary.

Our Holiday

We have been so blessed and have had such a nice holiday. Christmas was very quiet. It was just the two of us. Santa was very good to us. We reconnected with family. It was nice. We received some sad news that the Mom of a friend of our died. It really made the mood a little somber at our home. Life is so short and we shouldn't take any moment for granted. All and all it was a little lonely. We missed our families. But it was a good first Christmas together.

We also had a relaxing NYE. We went to a Thai restaurant called Spice near NYU. Candle light and all. Then we took the train to Central Park to watch the fireworks. We wanted to stop at a bar for the countdown, CHEERS! We watched the ball drop from THE BEST DIVE IN NYC (there was an actual award). Then headed over, in the rain, to central park while making our phone calls. Then took some pictures and headed back to Brooklyn. Home, Sweet, Home. Great, considering we've been working a lot.

Hopefully work will be slowing down for both of us. As long as we're both steady at 40 hours a week we'll be thrilled. It will be nice to spend more time together. All the working as been hard. We're ready for the home life. Hanging around and enjoying time together. Checking out new things.

Our anniversary is next month and I think we decided that we would get each other a cruise ticket. How excited are we!?!?! We are going to a travel agent this week or next and going to put a down payment on the trip and make our payments. I hope we get a good deal. We could use some time away, even though this time in NYC has been dream-like.

It really wasn't the same without our families but I guess life changes and its important to leave some wiggle room.

Lots of Love!!

P.S. We havent sent out of Christmas cards or gifts yet!! The poor post office is gunna have their hands full when we get over there!! It will be nice to get these out of our hair and into YOURS! ; )
