give me a floatie and a lime and i'm good to go

June 9th already!? Actually it may be the 10th now...

This is the first time that I actually have memory of blogging about this date exactly a year ago...it's my Papa's birthday! Yay! Happy Birthday! Miss you and love you! Geesh, our time in Corpus is flying by. We just signed another year long lease today...

I guess that puts us here on this date next year too.

The beginning of June has been exciting around the studio. The latest issue of The One is out...and it's full of color! It's such a fun project to work on, and we're really excited about the buzz it's been getting around town. Oh, and next week it's my two year anniversary at the studio! Woo! Yay for jobs at excellent design firms!

Our weeks have continued to be busy with work, social events, and spending some time relaxing with friends. We spent last weekend up in Austin with Rachel (having a total blast), and then this weekend a group of ladies from Brooke's church threw a baby shower for her and baby Annsley. Just one month until she's due! Yay! We can't wait to have a baby across the hall to go squeeze and kiss...and then leave with her mom and dad so we can go sleep ha. Kidding. We will gladly take baby sitting duty for them in those first few weeks so they can try to catch up on sleep every once in a while.

To celebrate our three year anniversary this year Nate and I decided to have some excellent photos taken (since we really haven't had any taken since the wedding). Luckily for us we know the best photographer in town! Our neighbor, Nicki Bursae, put together some awesome scenerios and we couldn't be more excited to see the final results! There's one sneak peek below... 

For the remainder of the weekend we spent time some together and took it pretty easy. Chase and Karina invited us over to Chase's dad's place for an afternoon of lounging in the pool with some coronas, burgers, and a giant bowl of queso. The weather was perfect, the company was great, and I didn't get sun burned! Yay!

Bean has some big o' ears.

The latest and greatest issue of The One! Our 1st anniversary issue!

One of my favorite spreads.

This is Frank. He is a retired cop, from Iowa City, that Nate met randomly in a park down town this morning. They got to talking (because Nate is excellent at making conversation with anyone) and he asked Nate to take his picture...

A sneak peek of the photos Nate and I had taken by the fabulously talented Nicki Bursae. We've only seen two of the pics, but they promise to be spectaclar! I married a total stud. Check out the Elvis sunglasses.

Me and Nate at Surf Club.

Our favorites...Karina, Chase, and a sunburny Terrell. :)
