What's going on lately...

A few friends have wondered what has been going on in our lives lately. Well, let's see--- Since Adam returned from Iraq late last year, we have been slowly returning to our normal routine. It was so difficult to be apart from each other for over a year and neither of us will ever be the same again. It's amazing how two people can grow closer to each other with thousands of miles between them. Okay, I'm not a sap, but I love that Adam and I are together again. (Okay, yes I am a sap..) Other families who have been through the same thing will understand.

As many of you know, Adam and I have been wanting to have kids for a number of years now. We can't wait to start our own little family unit and hope to be blessed in the next couple years. Speaking of little brother and his beautiful wife, Lauren, just had a daughter a few days ago. Congratulations! I love Avery Claire Barney! I'll post some pics soon of their little bundle of joy. I can't wait to meet her.

Adam and I will be in and out of the house over the next couple of months. I am going to Romania again this week and also on to Tbilisi, Georgia (the country, not the state). It's as far from home as I have ever been, so we'll see what kinds of adventures my boss and I will have! Adam and I then go to California with my sister's family and will spend a couple days in San Diego to visit Adam's side of the fam. A few weeks after that, Adam will be in Germany for a while and I hope to get in a quick trip to Utah during that time too.

Let's see, what else can I tell whoever reads this blog about our lives? Well, I finally went to one of Adam's church basketball games this morning. Tis the season for March Madness--they won their first game, but were eliminated the second game by one of the single's wards. I must say that it wasn't necessarily fair that they made the old married farts play two games in a row--but I kept my mouth shut. Adam was smacked around quite a bit, but boy is he quick on the floor! There is hope yet for our kids! Here's a picture from my phone (I only have the back side of Adam, #15)..
Well, that's it for tonight. I promise to update more often...;)

If I were a Jane Austen heroine, I would be....

I am Anne Elliot!

Take the Quiz here!

I guess that's about right...
