So I know I am going to catch a ton of slack for not having posted in almost 5 months but I figure its time to make a come back. Its kind of like not going to the dentist for a while and then not wanting to start again so you don't get the lecture (which I just got from my husband). That being said, here is what we have been up to the last month:
I have been working on my blog like crazy and it has been going well although I recently resolved to focus a specific hour or two a day on it so it would stop consuming my life. It was getting tiring and it was all I had time for. I decided to stop obsessing and to just devote that certain amount of time so I could enjoy more in my day. So far it has been going well and we have been having a lot of fun with friends and taking the girls outside. The weather has been wonderful the last few weeks so the girls have been living in our fully fenced back yard (the best thing about this house).
In April Justin's mom came up and stayed with our girls with Justin and I went to Front Site in Nevada (thanks again Brenda!!!). We went to the four day defensive handgun course and had a total blast. It wasn't the leisurely/ romantic vacation I had envisioned (we were there for almost 18 hours one day including driving time) as I passed out exhausted the moment we returned to our hotel every night but I had a great time. I also got second place out of almost 40 people in the hostage shoot off that they had on the last day (so yes, I beat Justin as well as a cop and people who had been there several times) and Justin achieved the graduate level (there is a big test at the end). Plus, now I feel incredibly competent and confident in my ability to use a handgun, which is a great thing. And as a bonus, I got to feel like a total Bad A** for four days ;)
So that is us since April. And since I have totally slacked on posting the last several months, here are some pictures of the girls to keep you all happy (yes, that means you Chels and Ash).
