The End of the Space Shuttle

On July 8, 2011 we watched space shuttle Atlantis take off from the Kennedy Space Center which marked the end of the manned space shuttle program. 

It was soo hot that day. 
We watched the launch with a hundred thousand of our closet friends. We were on the beach in Titusville just across the water from the Space Center. See the dock in the background? Those are all people crammed onto the dock.

After the launch we headed over to the space center. 

Part 2 of our Florida adventure coming to the blog tomorrow!

Happy 30th, J!

A very happy birthday to J today. Even at 30 he still looks 18. Which is kind of annoying :)

Ben and I love you more than you know!

4th of July Recap 2011

Our 4th technically started on the 3rd with a bbq at my parent's house. Don't let these two fool you. They were far from sleeping. 

I was pretty pleased with how my cake turned out although it could have used a little more frosting. 

That night we shot off some small fireworks.

The snap dragons were the biggest hit.

On the actual 4th we went up to J's parent's house where Ben was gifted with a brand new swing set.

And a little look back...

13 Happenings

one. I have been using our big fancy DSLR camera like crazy and I'm in love. I'm getting over the fact that it's big and bulky since the pictures are so much better than my Iphone ones.

two. With that said, my card reader keeps disappearing so all those beautiful pics are still on the camera. The camera cord also seems to be misplaced. First world problems. 

three. J and I made a pact that we will never drive to Florida again. Ever.

four. After years of thinking I didn't like them, almonds are rather tasty.

five. I have officially started back on the eating right, working out band wagon. 

six. If you're not using the Daily Burn app you need to be. And it's free to download.

seven. Two of my best friends are pregnant and they both happen to also be my MOH and a bridesmaid. And they are both due about a month before the wedding. 

eight. Want to see an adorable pic of said friend's sweet bebe? Go here. I can't wait to throw mom and baby a shower. 

nine. J turns 30 next Tuesday and I have no idea what to get him.

ten. Ben has started a new daycare which all of us absolutely love! 

eleven. After getting back from our "vacation" I need another vacation.

twelve. Katie over at Modern Day Family had the best post about couples taking trips or even just having dates away from their children. And I loosely quote, Someday our children will grow up and move out of the house and I still want to know and like the other person I'm living with. Can I get an amen?

thirteen. The battery on my Mac has finally given up. The laptop only works when plugged in which kinda defeats the point of a laptop. The computer is almost 5 years old so I can't be too upset. Too bad a new battery is only $100. I was hoping this would be the perfect excuse for getting a new Mac. 

Well I'm off to catch up on my Real Housewives. Goodnight y'all!
