Meet Maleah Lindsey Pearce

My super-mom sister just gave birth to this little bundle and we're best friends already. I had been so worried that I would miss her delivery. I flew into Austin, Texas around noon and my sister Arianne went into labor just a few hours later! At first she didn't realize she was in labor so thinking we were in no hurry I spent some time with my brothers and parents. At a park next to my brother's house they throw a "Gobblin Goul" every year. Everyone goes in costume. They have live music, hot air balloons, and tons of fun activities. Camden loved running around with his cousins.
Camden had a good view of the party from my dad's shoulders.My brother Jeremy went as a basketball player. He wore jumping stilts and did back flips in the crowd. That's my Jer! I think we're the only "adults" that still love to get dressed up.
While we were at the party my sister called and said that she really was in labor and to hurry and get to San Antonio. So we hoped in the car, costumes and all and rushed down to San Antonio. My poor sister labored all through the night and into the morning but at 8am Maleah was ready. It was so amazing to be there for her delivery. When Maleah let out her first cry we all cheered and cried. She is so beautiful! You did such a great job Arianne!!!!
It was such a great week. I loved every minute I got to spend with my family. Camden and I were sad to say goodbye and leave everyone in Texas!

Markoff's Haunted Forest gets better every year! Even the boys were screaming and jumping at parts. The most common quotes of the night were, "WHAT WAS THAT?!" ... "I don't know but it was scary!". We love you Markoff's Haunted Forest. See you next year!

Younger Than You Look!

Conversation with a woman in my spin class:
(Context-she was asking me about things she could do to get rid of her extra mid section. Side note- this was the skinniest women I've ever seen)
Her: "Well after you turn 40 it's just all down hill from there. It's starts in your 30's. Well you know what I mean, it's just harder than it used to be."
Me: "Hmm, yeah." Nodding slowly. I would have let it go there but she continued to stare at me waiting for me to expound. "Well I'm actually not in my 30's yet..."
Her: Cutting me off "You aren't even 30 yet?! REALLY?!!"
Me: "Um, no I'm 27 today actually".
Yes, this is exactly what every woman wants to hear on her birthday. 'Wow, you look older than you are!' Thank you lady with no filter. I'm buying wrinkle cream today.

Virginia Beach

We have been wanting to visit our good friends Sean and Cait, who live in Virginia Beach for a long time now and last weekend we finally got to go! We had perfect weather for a fun day at the beach. Camden was in heaven playing in the waves and digging in the sand. I wish you could see in the picture below the amount of sand that covered this little boy's body. Turns out Dorittos still taste good mixed with sand, or at least he kept eating them.By the time we were ready to leave the beach Camden's diaper was FILLED with sand so he had to do a little skinny dipping to wash off. (Yes this picture will be used as black male in fifteen years when he brings his friends over)Sean was nice enough to do the "one, two, three" game with Camden over and over again. Don't Sean and Justin make a cute couple?!
Sean and Cait are not only the greatest friends but they are so incredible with Camden!
