Summer in the rearview mirror...

Okay, I'll admit it. Paul and I are the worst bloggers ever. I always get in these stints where I'm like, "Oooh! Blogging! That sounds fun! Pictures, YES! Woo!" Then I forgot about it. Our apologies.

Summer has been here and gone (although when you live in Florida, it's kind of like summer year round.) We've been up to quite a bit since my last post on here.

Gracie is now 4 months old! She's getting sooo big, and growing up sooo fast. She's pretty much potty trained, although she has accidents every once in a while. Right now she's sleeping on the couch and really, she looks like a human. Her paw is covering her eyes. It's very cute. She has been a bit of a hassle at times, but she's growing up and calming down. She's very funny.

Most recently, we enjoyed our first trip to Michigan since moving to Florida. It was a lot of fun, and it finally felt like we were real adults going on a real vacation. We spent a week in Lansing, and a day in Grand Rapids. We got to visit with all our friends and family. The main reason for our trip was for our friends Mitch and Sunny's wedding reception. They got married in Korea this summer, and celebrated here in the states that week. It was a lot of fun to hang out with them, and we are very excited for them to visit us over Christmas/New Years time! We have also decided to make a trip to Korea next year sometime! YAY!

On June 30th, we celebrated our first anniversary as a married couple! (And we're actually coming up on a our 3 year mark in a few days here!) For our anniversary, since Paul got me my new camera, we decided to keep it small. We just hung out all day--watched a movie, went shopping, and went out to a delicious dinner. We also ate a splendid 1 year old cake (which actually was REALLY delicious.) Overall, even though we didn't follow the traditional guidelines with gifts of paper, it was an absolutely wonderful day. =D

A recent discover/obsession of mine has been The Twilight Saga. Twilight is this wonderful book series about a vampire love story. Yes, vampires. Now, I'm not really a sci-fi girl...not at all, so when I heard about Twilight from about 20 billion of my friends, I wasn't really that excited about it. When I finally got around to picking up the first book to read it, I couldn't put it down--not that or the other books in the series. The final book of the series finally came out on August 2nd, and I went to the book release party. I happened to win the store trivia (over 40 questions, then a sudden death round) and I was able to win a free copy of the final book. Imagine my excitement! In conclusion to this section, you REALLY need to check out Twilight, become addicted, then DISCUSS with me. Thanks =D

AND FINALLY, I've spent all day today cleaning out my computer and reorganizing my iPhoto stuff. Along with this, I've decided to start keeping picture albums online (rather than just Facebook.) I made a Picasa account and have uploaded some albums there for your viewing pleasure. It can be found here. =D

And that is all for this lengthy update on our lives. Expect more soon. I hope.

Rochelle =D
