We really met...

I just came across this picture recently and I realized that the first time I met Scott was on this day. We were at a mutual friends house, late 2006. I think it was in Ojai. Scott was there for someone's birthday and I had gone with a couple of friends to ride the track (that's me in the green). Towards the end of the day we met really quick and then my friends and I took off. We made such lasting impressions on each other that we totally forgot about that. It took us a few dates to realize that we had seen each other (probably many times) before.

The rest of our visit...

From New England July/Aug 2008

Scott and I were back east for about 12 days. We were able to take some time to see a little bit of New England (Rhode Island, Cape Cod, New Hampshire). We did a trolley tour of downtown Boston. I felt like such a tourist in my own town but I couldn't do all of the walking so it actually worked out well. I didn't realize that Scott had never taken the T before. That was pretty cool. He looks pretty good riding those long escalators. And of course we spent as much of our time as possible visiting with the family.

Baby Shower #1

From Baby Shower, Boston, 07.27.08

In July, we traveled to the east coast to visit my family. Scott's first introduction to most of them was at our (first) baby shower which was in July. It was at my Uncle Tony and Aunt Stacey's (;-)) house. They have an amazing back yard with a pool. Everyone put a lot of work into making it very nice. The weather was perfect. It had been threatening to rain but it was not too sunny or hot. Not cold. A little overcast. And it didnt start to rain until the second the party was over. That would have been a huge bummer. It was a lot of fun. I always love to have all (or most) of the family together at parties. Especially at Uncle Tony and Aunt Stacey's house. The kids love swimming in the pool and Stacey makes the best ice coffees.

Catching up...

From wedding 07.19.08

Well most of you know that Scott and I are married and expecting a baby girl...pretty much any day now. The official due date is 10.29.08. We havent decided on a name yet, although there are a few contenders. We've been very busy trying to prepare. In any case, we wanted to create this blog for family and friends who are not physically close to us. We'll start by posting some pics of our little wedding ceremony that we had in July. It was very short notice and most of our family could not be there so we are planning to do it again sometime in the near future.
