Finally, to catch you guys up on 2015 so far. We hit the beach as soon as we got home from Kentucky, hung out with friends, settled back at home, Derek and I celebrated 6 years of marriage and most recently, Valentine's Day weekend. Derek and I had our movie/date night on Friday so that we could spend all of Vday with Rowan. On our anniversary Derek took me on an early morning hike and we watched the sun come up and saw multiple pods of whales. Then he took me to brunch and we hung out with Rowan the rest of the day until our yearly tradition of dinner at Ruth's Chris Steak House. Now it's nearly March which is absolutely insane to me. D and I always talk about how it really feels like tomorrow we'll wake up and be 60 years old. I'll be 30 in May. These are my last couple of months of my 20s. What should I do?!? Do I need a mini bucket list? Just to leave my 20s with a bang? I don't know. Don't even get me started on the fact that Rowan is 4. People keep asking me if I'm ready for another kid and my response is always the same.. "I don't want another kid! I want Ro to be little again!" Sometimes she does something so grown up that my stomach drops and I feel like I might puke. I'll leave you with that.

(disclaimer: I'm well aware that I could wake up as early as tomorrow and suddenly have another case of baby fever.. so I never say never. But as of right now, we're still enjoying our three musketeer-dom)

This post consists of pictures from the end of 2014, sans vacations, since we covered all that in the last post. To sum it up: family fun, date nights, dirty mirror selfies, beach days and nights out with friends. So, you know, life in general.

Just catching up from where we left off.. in November.. sigh.
This is the vacation edition: our spontaneous trip to Disneyland over Thanksgiving weekend & our trip to Kentucky for Christmas.
The California trip was amazing. We decided to go on Sunday and bought our tickets and then left Wednesday! It was pretty exciting and we got to fly first class for the first time ever which is good for the soul but bad for the bank account. We were a little tired the first day at Disneyland but Rowan was a trooper and we got to see/do a lot of stuff. All Rowan really cared about was meeting the characters and eating churros but we managed to get on a lot of rides. The second day was California Adventure park and we were well rested and ready to party so I'd say that was a favorite. We went exploring and to Downtown Disney with friends the next day/night and then it was time to head home.
Our Kentucky trip was quite the fiasco, not gonna lie. The first few days were amazing and we were so happy to get Rowan back to Kentucky to see that side of the family again. But the day after Christmas the majority of the then 30 people household got slammed with different strands of colds, flus and bronchitis and we spent the rest of the trip sick and indoors. We tried to tough it out but it really put a damper on the rest of the trip. By the end all we wanted to be was healthy and home again. It was still great to see everyone though. Without further ado.. picture spam.
