The 34th Woz Day

So here I sit with 34 years under my belt. I don’t feel 34. I’m told I don’t even look 34. It was, though, inevitable that I’d reach a number that I would feel “old”. Okay, okay, I know that 34 isn’t by any means OLD, but for some reason, it doesn’t have the spring chickadee sound that 33 had. I had actually considered canceling Woz Day this year (ask Russ, he’ll tell you it’s true!), but in the end, my birthday always makes me smile so that idea got nixed with a quickness.

Who could turn something as sweet as this down?

Of course I made a wish!

Russ will tell you that he made this cake with his own two hands. 😉 Chocolate on chocolate covered in sprinkles. Yum.

My co-workers were also very sweet and had my desk decorated festively when I walked in at 7 a.m. This was also followed up with birthday breakfast burritos (smother mine in green chile, thank you!) for the entire team. 😀

Nevermind the fact that my desk looks like a high school locker, kthanx.

Awaiting me at home was this gorgeous bouquet of flowers from my little brother, Ryan, and his adorable girlfriend, Lindsey.

They smell soooo good! So gorgey, no?

I got lots of fun cards and gifties from my family. (Thank you all!!) This one came from Papo. I couldn’t stop laughing at how adorable this is. Oh, it’s still making me giggle.

*giggle*

The biggest box I got to unwrap came from Russ. He used an entire roll of wrapping paper to accomplish the job (and looked a little horrified to see how quickly I tore it all off!). Inside was a huge, soft as can be pregnancy pillow!

zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

The kitties still don’t really know what to make of this giant pillow in our bed (and I have to admit that it’s making cuddling a bit of a challenge!), but man oh man I am sleeping sooooo good. 😀

It’s been a wonderful year. I feel completely loved. *happy*

The Dot Shot – 20 Weeks

I don’t normally consider myself a shy person, but for some reason this particular request has me blushing. Many people have asked me for a baby bump pictures, so here you go!

The Whirlwind

I can’t believe Woztober is already half over. How on Earth did that happen? Needless to say, it’s already been a great month.

We started off the month in New England. While the occasion was one that was sad, I found a lot of happiness in that trip. I got to hear my father-in-law pay a moving tribute to his father (someone I would have loved to meet), visited the place where my sweetheart of a husband grew up, and had my very first cider donut. (Ask Russ how many HE ate! 😉 )

Sadly, I forgot my camera and we had to buy a little disposable jobby on our way into Brattleboro, VT. It LOOKED like a perfectly good camera but when I took it to get developed here they seemed sort of shocked. “We didn’t sell you this camera did we?” Turns out it was a wee bit old and our pictures didn’t turn out the best. 😦 We aren’t too worried, though, because we know we’ll visit again when The Dot is a few years old so daddy can show him/her around. 😀 Here are Russ’ favorite from our trip:

 

Brattleboro Common

 

 

Harrisville Pond -- Russ spent many a summer here.

 

 

Dummerston Covered Bridge

 

 

Flint feet surrounded by New England's Fall colors. So pretty!

 

After our ridiculously long day of traveling back to ABQ, we had one day to recover (not enough!) and were back to work on Monday. Only for that day though because we had visitors to pick up from the airport that night. 😀 The whirlwind continued with my family in town and all the things we wanted to show them.

After the fam went on their first hot air balloon ride ever that morning, Papo said he wanted to eat in little “hole in the wall” places with good food. We knew exactly where to go. Here are the boys after grubbing at Bobcat Ranch in Santa Fe.

 

Handsome!

 

With it being Balloon Fiesta, we were up EARLY the next morning to view the Mass Ascension. It was worth getting up to see!

 

What a sunrise.

 

 

The Kangaroos made me giggle!

 

 

This is how they make honey, I think. 😉

 

 

Russ' favorite of the day.

 

The next day we headed up to Sandia Peak. It was about 49 degrees on the mountain but with the sun shining bright, it was actually pretty warm.

 

We were headed up there.

 

 

Heading up the mountain!

 

 

Everything looks perfect from far away.

 

 

We made it!

 

 

The whole gang's here!

 

And of course, it wouldn’t have been a get together without this one:

 

Sandia Peak Feet!

 

So that’s where it went! 😀 What a whirlwind indeed.

Lazy Sunday

The last 2 weeks have been a whirlwind with travel and family visiting. It’s all been great and we’ll catch up with everyone SOON. Until then, you can see (via the kitties) what we’ve done this weekend.

Sunday at The Flint House

Back to reality and routine tomorrow.
