Update on the no updating

So... my computer died on Monday and I have not been able to blog/send pictures/print coupons/etc.

I am using my work laptop to update that I will probably not be updating until my new computer arrives.

I cannot do not want to upload pictures onto my work laptop and most of my blogging has lots of pictures.  So I am saving up all of my posts (and pictures) until I get my new computer.

Until then, please know that life is good (great) and my little baby will be 6 months old on Saturday!
Where has the time gone???

Have a great couple of weeks!

Weekend with Friends

So... Ben and I have been sick for over a week but we have previously made plans with friends before we got sick.  So, we rested up and pulled ourselves together and got together with some wonderful people that we don't get to see very often.

On Saturday, we meet Jen, Jill, Cathy, and Debbie for lunch at Buffalo Wild Wings.  Jen moved to Florida a couple of years ago but makes it up to DC several times a year.  She had never met Elizabeth, so we were excited for them to meet.

On Sunday, we drove to DC and had brunch at Greg and Charlene's house with their two adorable kids- Rosie and Atticus!  We forgot to take pictures but we had so much fun.  Atticus is almost 2 and Rosie is almost 5.  It was fun seeing them interact and how much they have grown since we last saw them.

We are hoping to feel better soon.  Until then, we shall keep resting (and drinking lots of orange juice).

Ben is 30 + 1

Ben turned 31 yesterday and to celebrate, Elizabeth and I took him to Philadelphia for the weekend as a birthday surprise.  We had a ton of fun in Philly, we hung out with Dan, went around the city, drove over to New Jersey and went to the Aquarium, and even had cheese steaks at Jim's (the best cheese steak place around).  Here are some pictures from our long weekend away.  Happy Birthday Ben!

(This Macy's is super fabulous.  It has the largest organ in the world and is a historic landmark)
