A Little Life Update

I have been a MIA Blogger lately.

There was no particular reason for this. I have just been in a bit of a 'funk' lately and didn't really feel like polluting my blog with my 'funkiness'. But I have missed my blog friends. So I figured it was time to get back into the swing of things!! If I don't blog I feel like I am disconnected from the world!

Here is a short recap of what I would have blogged about this week:

Weekly Weekend Update:
Our first married Valentine's Day came and went and it was great! I'm a big fan of spreading the love every day, so V-day is never anything very special but Friday when I got home from work I did get a couple of great presents from the husband (he knows how to speak to my heart) and we went out for a good meal and some ice cream.

The next day I was able to spend Valentine's Day with two very cute boys: Luke and my nephew. We spent the day babysitting and had SO much fun with him. But hear me out friends; we are not ready to take upon parenting responsibilities. Sometime in the future - but not the near future.

Luke spent time teaching him music skills:

While I took care of the fun things, such as feeding him:
He is learning the manly necessities early in life. A drink in one hand and video game controller in the other.

Monday:
I watched The Bachelor and came up with yet another reason why I could never go on the show: I am not comfortable getting in a bikini on national television - which now seems to be a requirement.

Tuesday:
My BFF Kara had her baby boy so I headed to my hometown to spend the day hanging with her and the baby.

Isaiah was born on Monday night and is absolutely adorable!! We had so much fun hanging out at the hospital just talking and laughing. I know she is going to be such a great mom!

Kara and Isaiah:


Baby Isaiah:

My sister and mom meeting Isaiah. They were at the hospital the night before but had to leave before he was born.
Wednesday:
Missed Luke as he was at a church conference, but he kept up with his husband duties and still called me in the morning to make sure I was awake and getting ready for work. Gotta love that boy.

So that pretty much brings us up to date.
Sorry I have not been commenting lately. I am trying to get caught up and back to my old blogger self!
Hope you are all having a great week!

I have been in a bit of a funk myself, so you are not alone.
And I LOVE the picture of the baby with a drink and a video game controller in each hand. So funny!:)

I hope that you have a blessed week!
In Christ,
Amy:)

Those baby boys (nephew and Isaiah) are too cute, congratulations to your friend!

And girl, you have some good genes in your family. Could you, your sister and mom be any prettier??!!

Rebecca Jo said...

The picture of your nephew with the drink & remote is adorable... especially the look on his face! & good for you two knowing you dont want to rush into kids... most people will push newleyweds... enjoy each other first!!!

And speaking of bikinis on the Bachelor - did you see how cute Jillian was in her bikini & her big ole furry boots? I thought she should win just because of that! :-)

I was just thinking about how I had not had a Meg-update lately and needed to email you. Thankfully you posted so I did not go into withdrawls. :-) Sounds like a full (but good) week in the land of the Tree's. Praying for the funk - I've been spending some time there too. No Fun(k)!!!

Love you friend!

Lindsey said...

I was wondering where you had been!
I feel you on the funk thing. Sometimes it just take too much time and effort to think of something to post about. Blogs shouldn't be that much work and breaks are always good! Glad you are back!

Sweet Simplicity said...

Alex and Jill said...

I'm happy to hear your 'funkiness' is going away. Your posts are always so funny & refreshing, but if you ever need to share the funk, feel free! Wow...say that fast, 10x's.

Your nephew is adorable, but can I say that you, your sister and Momma are, as well! Cutest family.

Glad you're back, girl!

Julie said...

That nephew of yours is just soooo adorable!! He is cute! I loved the picture of him holding a sippy cup in one hand and a controller in the next!!

I agree with you on v-day. Bryan and I spread the love pretty good the other 364 days of the year so V-day has almost become another day. But he did make me a card and got my favorite candy!

Jen said...

I was wondering where you ran off to!

- Sarah :-) said...

Oh wow - you knew her? That's so cool. I'm not usually this teenie-bopper sounding when it comes to stuff like this. Ha ha... guess I got a little carried away there.

So you guys live in OK? My husband lived in Enid when he was younger and swares it's one of the most beautiful states in the US.
