 So, I haven't posted in a while and the excuse is Instagram (an app on Sam's iphone).  It is so much easier and most people have it and it is a lot funner than blogging (in my opinion).  So now I am only uploading this pictures for my own 'journal' keeping. And because Sam has a cool face.
 We celebrated Sam's birthday.  His mom sent him his presents in this box and everyone in the office saw the package before Sam did (he was stuck in a meeting).  He looks like he might be embarassed but I secretly think he appreciated it.

He got more electronics for his birthday.  Cause you can never have enough apple products can you?  I just end up using all his toys though- guess I am really just buying them for me to use. Shh dont tell.

Present from our niece Vivian, she is the thoughtfullest.

I made him a chocolate carmel salted cake.  It was very rich and we ended up throwing most of it away.  I guess we are both use to having to cook for huge families and now just for two people- How do you convert that?!

After a series of bakery jobs, I am now an employee of cornerstone research (company Sam works for).  This is the view of me from Sam's desk.

We pass much of our evening time doing puzzles.  After 3 years of trying I have converted Sam to puzzling! I am beyond happy.  "It's okay Sam, relax.  I won't tell your old football friends you do this."

I attempting to be cool like my mom and I am taking on sewing projects.  Pillows covers and a bed skirt lists my success thus far. 

We got to go watch a Celtics game.  The team the Nelson's are supportive, nay, obsessed with.

Then we got a visit from .  .. . . the cool kids!! Right, I know.  Dal is greatness.

I had a baby ( only for a day though).  And I think I might be able to do it full time sometime!  No promises but at least I have the potential to bake and nurture at the same time.  (okay, the kid looks forgot but I gave him a few licks of the batter.  Shh shh now, you spoiled one.)

We also switched vehicles for a day with our neighors.  Their scooter for our car.  Sweet deal.  We basically spent the whole day out on the scooter.

Sf has sweet cheap fabric stores.

We spent Easter at some cousins out in central California.  It was so nice to have warm weather.  SO nice.

Sam took a needed brothers trip out to D.C.  All they did for. the. entire. trip. was hit baseballs. He was SOOO happy. Weirdo. In a good way.

We celebrated 3 yrs of marriage in a little beach town (santa cruz) down the coast.

We have really been enjoying the foods of SF.  Either we are experimenting with fun new recipes or going to some funky restaurant.

Trying to perfect bagels.  Slowly getting there.  There pretty delicious.

Bryan came into town for Katherine's wedding.  We spent the week baking and seeing the city together.

The bachelorette party was in San Diego and it was pretty fun.  Basically me and Bry hung out in the corner and got drunked.

Then we got a pretty spontaneous visit from Katie and Ryan.  Woot Woot.

Them eating a s'mores twinkie from the food trucks.  Their crazy aliens.  And I love them for it.

We also got a boating weekend, I can't believe how much I miss the warmth!

Our city at it's finest.

We also always have and always will love camping and hiking and exploring.  We try and go often but it is difficult.  Sam spends much effort on perfecting the s'more.  If it isn't roasted to perfect, he starts all over again.

This little island behind us we swam out to (meaning crawled out to since it was basically thick clay). Then spent the next hour rubbing mud from the island all over our bodies.  It was pefectly bizarreness.

 We head home (my home, not Sam's) in 2 days and I couldn't be more excited.

I love this mammoth post!! And I am murdering you because I love everything and you are a dream! I want to kiss my wedding cake a million times on the lips and I wish I was doing everything with you guys in every picture (but no kissing stuff). I am so excited to see you next week. BTW, I want to steal all of your weddin' pics.

Marry you if you were a boy... and Nick didn't exist. LOVE!

p.s. I made a pasta dish last week... still threw in the entire box like the whole fam was about to show up, class... Too hard to cook for 2... 15 is easier.
