a months worth of events

Well, I said I wouldn't do it...and I did. Nate and I have been so busy in the last few weeks I'm finding it hard to keep up on my blogging. This is about the 4th time I've worked on it, and I'm going to finish! But, seriously I'm going to try to do a better job with it this week. We finished out last painting job and have some time to rest...or at least just sit on our computers all night. 

Not much has changed around here. The international boat show was last weekend. We went and daydreamed about yachts and jet skis...and really nice cars. We also spent the afternoon at a fundraiser for the CC Ballet with one of Nate's boss' and her family. No pics from it, but it was a really good time. It kind of made me miss dancing...

We also just got Mario Kart for the wii which has taken up most of our time that hasn't been spent on the computer. The puppies are still spoiled, and so are we. I finally got a camera! It's exactly the same as the other SLR we have, only the body is black instead of silver. This meant we needed another lens....of course. I don't have any pictures from it to upload right now, but I'm sure we will soon. 

Other than that, we're moving into a bigger apartment in about a month. Woo hoo! We're staying at the same place so it will be an easy move. I'm SO excited about it. It's much bigger and will feel a lot less like an apartment, and more like a home. I think the pups are going to enjoy the extra room for them to run around in too.

Like I did last time, I'll just let the captions get anything I forget. Most of them are from a Hooks game we went to with our friends from Kingsville...who have the CUTEST kids ever. Just in case you missed me saying that in several of my previous entries.

A really pretty picture Nate took and edited of Hazel in the outer seating part of the suite.

Me and baby Caroline. So sweet. She spit up on pretty much every article of clothing I was wearing. :)  Nice shot Nate!


Caroline getting some tummy time.

Seriously, look at this kid. 

Caroline stretching in the suite at the game.

Watching the game and making sure Hazel didn't venture off the end of the stairs.

Mmmmm queso!

More on the face than in the mouth. 

Mom and Dad Seaman

The boys, Reed and Nate outside at the game.

The Disc-go-round we just painted. If it has color on it we painted it...yes, even all the bins the vinyl is in. They're metallic! Woo!

Another shot...record shelves, slat wall, and some brick wall.

Mmmm, more slat wall...and more brick. And about 10,000 CDs. Not kidding.

Me at the boat show. Thanks for the dress mom!

This is Nate's "I own a yacht" pose.

Andrew (lil' bro)...what is this? And why?

We took these car pics for my bro and dad. There ya go guys.

A $140k car that gets 12 miles to the gallon.  Dumb.

I want this.

One of the huge boats.

Tons of people on the marina.

People riding their electric coolers. Not EVEN kidding. It has a steering wheel. Where can I get one of these?

Dad, I bought this for you....you just have to move the family to CC to get it. Oh, and name it "The Ashley"

Downtown CC

Puppy kisses for sis.

Izzy and Bean checking out their new foldable kennel. Awesome for road trips!

We should totally play Mario Kart together over the 'net! I freakin' love that game...

A web design job in CC sounds pretty tempting, but Texas isn't someplace i'd ever really though about living. Thanks for the tip.

Us either...in fact I almost didn't send in my resume because it was TX. Turns out it's actually a pretty cool state. Well the like 5% of it I've actually seen. It's pretty HUGE.

Yes, Mario Kart is a must. I'm addicted...but not very good yet. How do we travel to each other's wiis?
