New York part 1. . .Brooklyn

This is my mom's Nana's house in Brooklyn. Nana was my Gramp's mom and this is the home he grew up in. It was fun to go and see it. . . although I don't think the neighborhood is the same as back then. The houses are cute with gardens on this block though. . . the pic below are of some neighbor's homes.
Yesterday evening we went to see the Brooklyn bridge and the view from the Promenade.

post pregnancy

Welcome to Polyvore!
Fashion Trends & Styles - Polyvore

Have you ever been to polyvore? You should check it out. I just spent time making outfits for post pregnancy b/c I am already sick of the clothes I am wearing. You can make all kinds of outfits. This outfit makes me happy. If I had to commit to a uniform. . . it would look something like this.

So. . . our sweet baby is kicking. I am sure the day will come when it is more uncomfortable than wonderful. . . but right now I just think it's wonderful. Just thought I'd share.

In other news. . .the doves flew from their nest today. Before work they were there. . .after they were gone.

dove watch

The baby doves are growing and I think they will probably leave the nest soon. It's been very fun watching them grow. . . I hope doves make a nest here every year because I think it would be so much fun for baby boy or girl in a couple of years.

summer time

Okay people. . I've been busy and my blog has taken a back seat. Plus someone hacked my blog last month and I spent a couple of days getting it back up. . sorry if you came and my blog wasn't here!

So summer. . . I wouldn't say it's my favorite season. . .  but there are things that I really enjoy. Here is a run down of things I have enjoyed this summer. 

Here is my bounty after visiting the farmer's market with two friends Saturday morning. Yum . . . produce shipped from Mexico just can't compete.

Jonathan napping on the porch. I sort of woke him up while taking this picture. Last summer he fell asleep out there one evening after I had already gone to bed and didn't wake up until 2 am to come inside. This incident was followed by lots of joking of what that must have looked like to the neighbors. . . Did his wife put him out on he porch?!? Let's just hope for no repeat performances this summer :)

The baby dove hatched. It was pretty incredible actually. I was ironing standing not far from the front door when I noticed the dove fly away (and that dove has not left the nest unless startled for weeks people). I started watching and the next thing I knew I saw the little baby dove head peeping out of the nest. So cute. The momma/daddy dove came right back and immediately became very protective. Sorry for the fuzzy picture. I took it through the glass door for fear of making the dove mad. 

Jonathan had a birthday. We were in Dallas visiting family and all went out to eat to celebrate. Jonathan had a great birthday and we also really enjoyed spending time with my dad & Julie, Aunt Marsha & Uncle Ed, and my sister.

Here we all are before dinner. Sorry friends asking for baby bump pictures. . . I am defiantly showing in this pic. . but since the shirt is tent like and I am leaning over you can't really see much. I will take a good baby bump pic soon and post it.
