The rest of July.

Written on 07/14/2011

July has been a crazy month! I think the older you get the busier you get. The weekend after our family was visiting and Isla’s birthday, Vin and I escaped to Seattle for the weekend to enjoy….ready for it?……

none other than,


We rocked out to the tunes of the 80’s, 90’s and 2000’s. I was a little young to fully enjoy The New Kids On The Block, but Vin wasn’t. He knows every song by heart and (sorry honey, it’s just a fact) he knows every band member down to their birthday. I happen to find this really cute so it essence it makes our marriage better. Thanks New Kids.

Now… Backstreet Boys on the other hand, we have some history. I mean who didn’t blast “I want it that way” as loud as they could while driving with their best friend perfectly choreographing hand motions to each word? And who didn’t sit in their bed and cry huge crocodile tears to “I’ll never break your heart”?

So, it was pretty much a little dream come true to see the guys live. Even if they are in their late 40’s. They still got it goin on. (Right babe?)

Grabbing some candy and drinks before the show!

We’re getting really good at self-shots!

*insert angelic singing here* and I am pretty sure he’s pointing right at me….

(That’s Brian Littrell on the screen, who happens to be my fave BSB)

Rocking the show.

This was their finale. It was epic.

So, as you can see we thoroughly enjoyed NKOTBSB. After the concert we headed to our Hotel and finished the weekend in Seattle. It was so nice to spend time alone with my husband. I forget how much we don’t get to hang out. Our lives are so busy and with two kids it’s just simply chaos some days. Currently as I type this Cohen refuses to move away from leaning on one of my arms so that leaves me with one hand to type with, and Isla is creating a huge mess shredding up a piece of paper….. I don’t know how all you Mom’s blog so well on a regular basis. I’m thinking you lock yourselves into a room until the job is done.

So here we are. Marriage isn’t easy when you have a crazy busy life to tend to, but getting away and spending time together definitely helps!

I have my amazing Mom to thank for this. She never hesitates to stay with the girls while Vin and I enjoy some much needed time away together!



Ps. I am ending this abruptly because I really want my arm back.

    I love the pics. You are such a flawless beauty. And Backstreet Boys were my fave! When I was 16 years old, I had this whole story in my head of how I was going to meet and marry Nick. LOL! I know, absolutely lame.

    Anyhoot, I can totally relate to the arm pulling and the other kid making a mess. Happens to me ALL the time when I try to be on the computer during the day.

    Which brings me to my next thought. It's absolutely impossible to blog during the day. My girls just dont allow it. This means I have to stay up late at night. And that works for me. Im a night owl who thinks clearly in the wee hours :)
