This summer was really good to us! We were able to head off to Europe for 2 1/2 weeks in late May/early June and it was the best thing ever (full post on that here.)
With me being pregnant we really took the rest of the summer easy and enjoyed spending time together, preparing for the baby, and relaxing lots.
One of my favorite memories from this summer was when Andrew and I swiped Josh's (Andrew's little bro) new Jeep and took the top off for a drive up the canyon. We picked up sandwiches and drove up to Silver Lake where we explored a little bit and ate lunch. It was so fun jamming to music, enjoying the scenery, and hanging out with Andrew. The mountains + Andrew really are my happy place.

After our drive we picked up Brianny and Josh and went cruising on State street with the top down, it was so fun! I love these people.
We decided to go with a basic white room and make it super simple and clean. This deserves it's own post which I'll share soon but we worked on this slowly all summer and it was so much fun. I also bought so much stuff. We can build 100 forts with all the cardboard boxes we've had from my Amazon purchases! It's been so awesome. I bought LOTS of baby clothes and tons of baby products. It really kept me busy after work and on the weekends haha it's amazing how many things you need for a baby.
Another highlight has been getting plants and bushes for our yard. We decided to do this on a whim one day and it was such a funny memory. My Subaru is basically a flat bed truck and we packed it FULL with sweet bushes and plants at the nursery.
Lastly, we've just had fun being at home. We have done lots of little baby projects and are soaking up as much time just the two of us as we can before baby comes. Andrew said the other day "do you realize that it will NEVER just be the two of us again?" I seriously started bawling. As much as we are SO excited to get this little man here, I can't imagine having more fun and more love than Andrew and I have had in our last 4 1/2 years of being married. We definitely fight (mostly I just start fights!) and our marriage is in no way perfect. But we really are friends, we have a real love, and enjoy being together, and that's all I could ever really want. I'll definitely miss this stage of our lives, when it was just the two of us having fun and just enjoying each other.
Here's to the end of one chapter and the start of another one!
