Well I hope that everyone had a good Easter. We sure did! We are moving this week so it was the last Sunday in our ward and it was so hard to tell our primary class we were leaving, they were so sad. We are excited for our new adventures ahead though. This first picture is of Andie being her usual self climbing on Everything, and the rest are of Andie on Easter with some of her toys she got.
Andie is obsessed with ducks lately and she loves this one Grandma got her. It is a puppet and it quacks. Not only that but when it quacks it sings songs like Old McDonald had a Farm and she just cracks up!

New Sofa

So today I had the day off and Brittany, Andie and I all went shopping. Since we are moving into a new place we thought we would simplify our living room and go with a more mid-century modern feel doing away with the paisley grandma-ish sofa set we currently have. So all week I have been doing research looking for good deals, furniture stores, and pieces that fit the style we were looking for. Let me tell you there aren't a lot a furniture retailers that have mid-century type pieces unless you buy something online for thousands or go to D.I. Luckily I came across a really cool website (if any of you like modern furniture check them out, their local) and they posted some info about a great mid-century-esque sofa from Macys. So we checked it out today, fell in love with it, and we bought it!

Its called the Corona Sofa and it actually is real comfortable (which was my biggest concern) and I loved the texture of the fabric. Anyways, you can check out the other colors and info about it here. We also stopped by a few stores just to find some accents and such for our condo, my favorite store though was Modern Materials Design they sell a ton of EQ3 furniture and accessories at least 50% off. They are moving locations next month and have even better discounts on a lot of stuff. Its worth the adventure of actually trying to find them. We picked up this sweet clock...

All in all it was an eventful day and it was great to spend some time with Burt and Andie. Well let us know what you think! We are excited to move and can't wait to get out of this apartment and into an actual nice place.

Spring Break!

Last week Adam was on Spring Break so we decided we would go on a much needed vacation. My family was heading to Las Vegas for one of my brothers soccer tournaments so we decided to tag along. It was so nice to get away for a few days and enjoy some much needed warm weather. I was really worried about Andie being in the car for over six hours but she did Great! When she would get a little anxious we would just put on Baby Einstein and she was happy.One night we headed over to the MGM to eat at the Rain Forest Cafe. It was really good food and Andie loved it. She was loved all of the animals that were there.
The weather was in the 80's while we were there. It was so nice so Adam decided to take Andie swimming for the first time. She Loved it!On Saturday we went to two soccer games. It was so nice to just relax and hang out in the sun. I even got a nice sunburn!And of course we had to go to In-N-Out to eat!While we were waiting at the soccer fields we took Andie over to the playground. She loves being outside. Now I just have to wait for it to warm up here.Andie really enjoyed Vegas. There was so much to look at, she loved it!
