OUR STORY

Jody and I have been married for 6 years now! We live a simple life, but it's a happy life. We've been blessed with our sweet Elsie who we adore each and every day. Here's to a blog of thoughts, memories, and who are we kidding, lots of Elsie!!

My family in Boston

video

We LOVED having my family out this past week.. From Salem to Plymouth, and from Deep Sea Fishing to Fenway Park, I think we saw all that the Boston area has to offer! We are SOO grateful for the visit my family made out to see us and miss them already!! Thanks for the fun time and we can't WAIT to see you all again :)

New Toy

We are now new owners to a 17 ft. Galaxy Bowrider!! We are sooooo stoked! We can't wait to spend the 3 day weekend (and many more to come) out on the ocean soaking up some sun, touring abandoned islands, and catching some big fish!! Let the summer fun begin :)

We Love Her!!

Jody's Mama came to Boston.. and what a BRAVE soul she was! BRAVE because she had only flown a time or two before this, and never, EVER solo.. BRAVE because she was dropped off at the airport 3 hours before her flight departed and didn't dare move or go anywhere from the gate due to her possibly getting lost. BRAVE because her cell phone was stuck on speaker phone AND blinking low battery while she was still in Vegas.. note: she still had NY, then Boston to go! and BRAVE- because when we went in to pick her up, she was smiling ear to ear with a gentlemen pushing her in a wheel chair so proud she did it all on her very own!

We did all sorts of fun things, from downtown Boston, having beach days, to the Harley Davidson Festival in New Hampshire.. We really LOVED having her here for two weeks and hope she enjoyed her birthday trip to Boston!! my camera deleted more the HALF of our pictures but here is a few :(

Harley Davidson Festival-






Headed Downtown- she enjoyed the ferry ride and feeding the animals I think the MOST! Not hard to please ;)

catching up...

First of all- I had a wonderful 24th Birthday!! YAY- I LOVE Birthdays :).. This year all I wanted was a wonderful weekend get-a-way and Jody planned a perfect trip to- Martha's Vineyard! We had such a BLAST!!!
Our little Bed and Breakfast room...

The Gingerbread Village - I fell IN LOVE with these cute houses and couldn't believe that people actually live in them..



My FAVORITE little home.. I just think this is the cutest place ever :)




It was an awesome birthday and I thank everyone who made it so special!!!

I have to also talk about how AWESOME the weather has been here! I think spring is my new favorite season! Everything is blooming and Boston is SOO green! It's weird to see grass and trees along the free way instead of decorative rocks and cactus's! We LOVE the desert and miss it dearly but we are enjoying the beautiful scenery all around here.. Here are some of my favorite pictures!
This peninsula is Hull, MA (Our hometown) and another picture of our home on the island!
Nantasket Beach and a pic of Hull's firehouse.. I LOVE it...I don't know why!
Jody has an eye for great pictures! I just love these ones :)
Since it has been so gorgeous outside, we decided to cruise down to Providence, Rhode Island and enjoy a beautiful day outside, touring Newport and seeing the cliff's, and the huge mansion's there! We had such a fun day...

Also, we are doing great with our infertility process. I've been a lab rat for the past 2 weeks and have had quite the number of tests but so far, so good! They haven't found anything serious that would be causing any problems so we are grateful there. Jody mentioned to me last week, that he finds all of these tests and the process so interesting and it makes it more fun then if we could just get pregnant the natural way- to bad I couldn't agree with him, as I'm the one getting poked and violated each week, while he sits there and holds my hand... haha, but all joking aside; I am grateful to have his love and support! And I'm grateful that we have been able to not focus on the negativity of the trial we are going through but have been lucky enough to enjoy life with just the two of us and take advantage of our free time while we have it!
Sorry for the long post, but we are really enjoying so many things right now and grateful for the experience this has all been!!!

The Happiest Place on Earth :)

We had so much fun this last week... Taking Jody's family to Disneyland was a wonderful vacation for all of us! It was the first time for Jason's family- and those kids absolutely LOVED it!! It's so fun to see them get so excited for all the characters, rides, treats, parades, and everything else that happens at Disneyland! Laureen (Jody's mama) had a rough start on the haunted house.. but after the famous "Soaring over California" ride, she enjoyed the whole trip much more! Needless to say, it was a much needed and fun time for everyone :)

Where to start...

All I can say is wow.. my poor blog! It has been neglected for SOO long! I don't even know where to start!!!! So I'm not even going to try to catch up..

Life right now is FULL!! First of all, I just want to tell my husband how truly awesome he is! Being out here with just the two of us has been incredible! Of course we miss EVERYONE back home and are super anxious to get back but we have learned SOO many things already and it has definitely been the right move!

We haven't been up to anything exciting as far as crazy adventures or awesome outside activities because the weather- well basically SUCKS! It's our only goal to get out of here before another "New England Winter!!" Ha- it's MISERABLE!!

Luckily, we have some great TV shows to keep us entertained...
One Tree Hill is starting to BUG me but Lexi got me addicted forever ago so I have to continue it..
and the great American Idol...



We love Andrew and Didi so far so hopefully they will keep doing great!!



Our other excitement is Primary! We both were called as Primary Teacher's and we are quite the team, let me tell you! Ha- Jody teaches the quick lesson's while I do all the fun activities and entertain them as much as you can with 8 - 7 year olds! After our first week, Jody wanted to go back and ask the Bishop for a resubmission on the calling, (he was kidding!) and we are LOVING it and trying to get SOMETHING across to those poor kids every week!! They all have the cutest personalities and are a great class!!

We are also going to Disneyland in March with Jody's family! We are pretty dang excited... This is probably the first time Jody's immediate family will all be together for a fun adventure- Mom, Jason and his family and us.. We are really excited to see them all and know it will be an entertaining time :) I'm sad we won't get to see any of mine but hopefully we can get down there soon!!

Anyways- Sorry for a boring post with no pictures but yes we are alive and doing great and I promise to make it more exciting next time!!
