Little Baby Sophie


Isn't she the cutest thing you've ever seen!!!! I was so lonely this summer while Jared was gone so I decided to get Chauncey a little sister!

Actually, about a month ago my mom and I were shopping at my favorite antique store when I saw this pile of sleeping kittens. I love kittens. So they were all asleep and cute and I instantly knew I had to have one. Little Soph-ster was at the bottom of the pile and the smallest of the group. I picked her up and carried her around with me while I shopped to see if she was snuggly, sort of a pet interview you could say, and boy was she! She loves to be held and cuddled - everything I wanted Chauncey to be that he's not. (I still love you Chauncey, you stinker)


When we were done I asked the lady how much they were and she said "FREE!", what a glorious day! I then realized that there wasn't anyone there that could tell me I couldn't have her, and surely Jared would fall in love with her after seeing the cuteness. A few hours later I called and broke the news and, surprisingly, he wasn't angry that I had just doubled the cat population in our house and the number of pets he's had in his entire life!



When he met her for the first time on Sunday it was love at first sight, I knew it would be. She really is so stinkin' cute. Chauncey, however, is not so sold. He's really warmed up since the beginning when he growled at her if she was even in his peripheral vision. I actually caught them cuddling the other night so I think he's coming around. Now Jared has his wild crazy cat-dog and I have my little princess Sophie! (do we need kids or what!? haha)

All is right with the world!!!

Jared's home!!! He's home, he's home, he's home! After 2 and a half long months I finally have my husband back. He's been in Chicago doing an internship with OfficeMax Corporate all summer and he presented his project a little over a week ago.

I got to fly up and see him and all of the other interns present to the CEO and 150 other senior executives and associates, it was really exciting. Exciting for him, but NERVE WRACKING for me! I guess it should have been the other way around but Jared is completely at home speaking in front of people, I think it's because he's amazingly good at it which makes me jealous.

Jared and his friend Sebastian from Peru. We miss you Seabass!

He had one of the best presentations of the group (not just in my opinion either!) and did an amazing job on his project. We were in Chicago for four days and had a blast. I got to go up to see where his office was and meet his co-workers, everyone was so nice. It was really incredible to be in a corporate environment that was so comfortable and new and NICE! We absolutely love the company and are really grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of the program.

All of the Aggies giving a Whoop!

They announced at the presentations that over 2,000 people applied for the 28 intern positions so these interns were really the best of the best, how crazy is that! I couldn't get over it. After we packed up his apartment we headed south to meet my family in Destin for a much anticipated week on the beach (hence the lack of blogging). It was a 15 hour drive but we split it into two days so it really wasn't that bad.

On the way down we talked a lot about how much has happened during the past two years being married. We both feel so overwhelmingly grateful and humbled by the blessings and opportunities that we have seen in our lives and continue to see.

Personally I don't know what I ever did to deserve a husband like Jared. He is the hardest worker I've ever known and never lets anything knock him down, he is absolutely hilarious, he's honest and always generous and sincere - he is everything I could have ever wanted in a husband and then some. I just love him like crazy. My sister Melissa told me last week that I am more myself around Jared than I have ever been, and I think that says it pretty well. When you are with someone that helps you become the truest version of yourself without even realizing it, that is how you know. I am the happiest girl in the world, and I'm so glad he's home.


(for anyone who is gagging from me going on and on - sorry, but I bet you would do the same if you're husband was gone for two and a half months! =) so I don't feel bad)

You know how it goes....

you get busy with life and you forget to blog about it! It's been a long week, sorry for the slacking and lack of posts. There's been so much going on - getting ready for students to come back at work, proofing two sessions from the weekend, trying to get everything together for when Jared gets home next week - yay! (I guess I need to start shaving my legs again), got a new kitten on Saturday (her name is Sophie, she'll have her own post later), and trying to address my paleness before our beach vacation in a week. Yikes!

Anyways, here's a couple of shots from the Robinson's family session. They were awesome, so laid back and fun... and ridiculously good looking, which makes my job easy.
