Just last year....

Last year on Jan. 31st Reuben and I got engaged. He surprised me with a scavenger hunt down to Laguna Beach. My ring arrived the day of and I was totally surprised. Here are some highlights.
The first thing I saw when I walked into the house. At each stop I also picked up a yellow tulip:)
All the clues led me to the beach where Reuben was. He had taught himself how to play, "'Til Kingdom Come" by Cold Play on the guitar.
The ring that no one was allowed to see!
Reuben singing to me- he was seriously REALLY GOOD, especially knowing that he makes up his own words to MOST songs.
Our mark on society
Some of this
Reuben never waited for a yes or no
The day was perfect. Don't worry CA I'll see you again soon:)
The next day we went back to the beach for engagement pictures. I had planned to wear my sister in-law's ring but Reuben threw me for a loop and I got my own! This is representative of our marriage, I have to do all the hard work! hahah I'm kidding.

I'm going to pop!

Here we are, 7 months and would like to work out a deal about getting bigger. Turns out the baby is only about 3lbs. so I don't really think I have a choice. I had to make one of these black and white to perhaps take a few lbs. off. Bummer that the "slimming effect" doesn't occur here.

Christmas in CA

Our Christmas festivities started off with Reuben going to the emergency room for stitches. He was trying to hurry and come pick me up for work when he hit his head on the door. I saw his skull and there was lots of blood! He got 10 stitches which he is showing off in many of the pictures, please note. We went to CA for Christmas to spend time with my fam., we even found time to visit the animals at the San Diego Zoo!

These rhinos were going to the bathroom every five minutes. We probably shouldn't have watched them for as long as we did.
Reuben in the morning. Love you:)
This lion was ticked! I thought for sure he was going to eat us.
Rule number 1: blowing warm air on a pregnant lady's face will never get you a cute picture
