1. We are home owners!!! After a year of waiting to move into our dream home it finally all worked out.
We have definitely outgrown our 1 bedroom apartment over the years, it is so nice to have so much more room and a kitchen with so much space!
3. We had a trip planned to go to Mexico for our friends wedding in April. We found out at the end of January we were pregnant, and with all the Zika virus risk in early pregnancy we decided we weren’t going. Luckily we got our flights and hotel refunded and went to Vegas instead!
Part of our trip planned was to New York to visit Greg’s family and his new niece.
We waned to do a gender reveal with our families, so we stopped at the famous Magnolia Bakery and kindly asked them if they’d fill a plain cupcake with pink icing for us. We got a pink and blue chocolate cupcake along with it. We skyped my mom and Greg’s dad back in London so they could all watch while we cut the cupcake!
We went to the World Trade Center observatory. It was a beautiful day with great views.
The best pancakes of my life! Served with maple butter. I had to buy the cookbook for this place after the first time we went. The biscuits are killer too.
Our last night in New York and had a bigger and even better pizza at Patzeria Family & Friends.
It was definitely weird being in Vegas and not being able to drink, so I ate instead!
Our staple standard Rueben at Planet Dallies in Planet Hollywood, the best.sandwich.ever.
Carmelised banana and pecan pancake from Hash House A Go Go, a foot wide and long, I only managed about a quarter of it!
Lots more cute baby purchases! Janie & Jack has the cutest clothes!
After Vegas, we flew back to the east coast into D.C. to go and see my mom for a few days which was great since I hadn’t made a trip to her house in 3 years!
Breakfasts made by mom are the best.
4. Since I won’t be able to fly after July, we are USA bound again in a few short weeks. We have another Vegas trip planned but mainly going to go back to Seattle to see my family since it may be awhile until we are back and have a baby shower with my family, beyond excited!!
5. I heard back from my dietetic Masters interview and didn’t get a spot. Luckily it doesn’t matter this year since I wouldn’t have been able to start anyway, but it would have been nice to have a secured spot next year instead of starting the applications process all over again. 3rd times a charm?!
