I've been a little busy lately...

So you might have realized I basically took the whole summer off of blogging and we're now a good way into fall and I've been silent. I'm sorry about that. I kept wanting to come back to blogging, really I did, but each time I put it off it seemed even more and more overwhelming to come back to.
I have some big stuff to talk about! I may have missed the window for talking about our one year anniversary and the incredible vacation to NC this summer. But I definitely owe you at least a recap about how I have a job now! Brian's been gone for the last 7 weeks at boot camp. How we moved in with his parents in Austin and are starting the search for a house. And last but not least, how we're expecting a baby in April! That's right, there's an egg in this nest. I think it might take a whole week of straight up writing to get all that on screen so I'm going to just ease back in I think. I've been missing you all!
Here's an update on my 30 before 30 list to kick off my reentry into blog world.
1. Become a mom

I think I lost a few followers while I was gone. Sad, but completely understandable, so if you do drop by could you let me know in the comments? I'd like to know also which blogs I need to hurry back to visit!
