The Last Few Months in Pictures April 8, 2014

Obviously I have been MIA on my blog posting the last few months. I have been taking no less pictures than usual, including Avery’s 10 and 11-month pics…but have had absolutely no time to sit down and edit pictures and write posts. Today I found about five minutes at work, because I was desperate for a break, to make a post of random pictures I’ve taken with my phone. So for now that’s the best I can do! The end is in sight though!!!

-One week until my thesis defense.

-Less than two weeks until my final thesis is to be turned in.  (Hoping I meet the deadline.)

-Another week after that until my comprehensive exams.

-And one more week after all of that until my last final.

If I can be successful with each of the above items, then my graduate degree will be complete…and I will have much more time for blogging again.  :)

In a nut-shell, Avery loves to play!  And the last picture is of Avery’s first trip to Silver Dollar City and her first train ride.  I adore my little family and feel oh-so lucky to have them.

-Shout-out to Aunt Pat & Uncle Ross for the super cute Valentine’s Day card for Avery.  Thank you!

(P.S.  This post is especially for you, Nannie.  I love you and I’m sorry I haven’t had time to post more for you to see!)

 

 

Life is Too Busy… August 24, 2013

Life is too busy right now to spend what little free time I have with my Avery girl to write on my blog instead.

Driving, working, grading math work, making bottles, creating trig notes, cooking dinner, pumping, packing a diaper bag, working on my thesis, doing laundry, cleaning when I can, sleeping every now and then, and of course getting to spend my evenings with Adam and Avery.

BUT amongst all that I still can’t help but constantly take pictures of Avery. Plus I get at least one cute pic a day when she spends the day with Aunt Mari and her girls. So after several requests I’ll get right to what everyone really wants…pictures of Avery. Here is a handful of my favorites over the past few weeks.

2 Years July 19, 2013

I’m thrilled to say that today marks Adam and I’s 2nd wedding anniversary.  I thought it would be fun to reminisce a bit through my blog, as Adam is never very on board for all that mushy stuff.  :)

20111211_143

Here are some questions and answers that I thought would be fun to answer and then to have to compare to in years to come.

Number of years married: 2

Number of years together: almost 4

Ages: I’m a week short of 29 and he is 32.

Where we live: Our house in Nixa that fits us perfectly for the time being.

Number of kids: ONE!  Our almost 3-month old Avery Grace.

Where do I work? About to start my 7th year teaching at Central.  And I finished off my fifth and final (for now) year of coaching tennis by sending a doubles team to State.

Where does Adam work? He is about to start his 11th year of teaching, and his 5th at Ozark.  (I think I got that right.)  Plus he is starting his second year of coaching junior high football, which he really enjoyed last season.

What awesome things have happened within the last year? We went on vacation to Weston/Miami Florida last summer and to Memphis on a Babymoon over our Spring Break. We also got pregnant with our first baby, then in May welcomed her into the world.  So, pretty much the most awesome thing possible happened.  :)

What do we enjoy doing as a couple? We are very much home-bodies when we aren’t on vacation.  So just being home together is on the top of our list…especially when we are in the midst of all the busyiness that comes with school and coaching.  And now of course, the time it takes to take care of a newborn.  We also love working in the yard together, watching sports (what ever is in season), and eating out.

In our marriage we are really good at… supporting each other.  Adam  is the calm one, who can always bring my high-strung self back together when I’m panicked or worried about something.  I do my best to take care of him in any way that he lets me, even if it’s little things like laundry and cooking dinner with no carbs!

We’re dreaming of… always our next vacation, hopefully to the beach next summer with Avery.  A day when no baby cries ALL day long.  And of course our retirement.

We’re busy with… school very soon, and for a few more weeks entertaining our newborn.

We want to… finish more master’s classes this year.  I’m hoping to completely finish.  And to continue to save money for our retirement and future trips.

I like to… read, spend time on the treadmill, watch bad TV.  I’m currently hooked on watching past seasons of The Vampire Diaries. (Thanks Mari and Katie.), and of course try to get my precious baby to smile.

Adam likes to… hunt, play golf, work in the yard, play X-box on occasion, and keep up with the sports world.  He is also a master of Words with Friends.  I don’t think I will ever beat him at that one.

What does a typical day look like? We are still working on what’s typical now that Avery has arrived.  Not to mention it will all change very soon when we both head off to work.

Anniversary Plans: We have spent the day at home…nothing exciting, but at least we are together.  Probably dinner out somewhere yummy tomorrow night.

Most Recent Pic: First shopping trip to Branson with the babe.

I love you Adam.  Happy Anniversary!  I can’t wait for all the years we have to come.  -Lindsey

 

A year and half later… October 28, 2012

Yes, I did it again. I am quite possibly the worst blogger ever. I wrote three times consecutively…and now it’s been over a year and a half with no posts whatsoever. However, I now have a reason that might keep me a little more on top of things. And that would be the upcoming arrival of the newest member of the Erickson family!!

Adam and I are extremely thrilled to welcome a new baby to our house on or around May 21st, 2013! I have several family members and possibly a few friends who will be dying to see pictures of me and my growing belly (particularly my Nannie), so I think this will be the best way to give those people what they want, since I won’t get to see most of them on a weekly basis. Pictures coming very soon!
