Ryan Sean Darby

Yesterday was the 29th birthday of my sweetheart. I thought that we could take look at Ryan though the ages and see how he became such a handsome man 29 years down the road.

Happy Birthday my honey!!! I love you with all my heart! Thanks for being so good looking!

Baby Showers

I have been so lucky to have 3 wonderful baby showers. The first shower was with my coworkers, thrown by my friend Connie. It was a lot of fun. Everyone at work has been so sweet to me throughout my pregnancy. I am the only one of 6 pregnant ladies at work who is having a girl, so I get a little special treatment. Who doesn't like to buy cute frilly girl stuff right?

Shower number 2 was given by my mom, my sister Jaymie, and my sister-in-law Marisa. My sweet sister even flew down from Portland just for the day to be there for the shower. Isn't she the best? There were people at the shower who I hadn't seen since my wedding, so it was really nice to catch up. I got so many great things, but my favorite of all was the stroller/car seat combo. I had so much fun pushing it around the house, pretending there was a baby in it. I really felt like a mom.

And the last but definitely not least was last Saturday at my wonderful friend Maren's home. She also threw me my bridal shower. You could not ask for a kinder, better friend than Maren. And this shower was with all the girlfriends. So much fun! We had a blast eating, playing games, and just chatting.

Thank you everyone for your love and kindness. Our little Kate would be naked and Ryan and I would be in the poor house without your generosity. I had no idea babies needed so much stuff.

Sorry I only have pictures of the shower at my mom's. She is a picture taking fiend.

Making sure it fits

I love pretending to be a mom

3. Ryan and I dated for 6 months and were engaged for 3 1/2. This is a picture of Ryan and I the week we met.

4. I dont think I was a bridezilla. By the time it came to us getting married, I just wanted to be married to Ryan and didnt care that much about the rest.

5. My wedding color was sage green and I guess there was a hint of pink in the flowers, but the wedding party mostly wore black. I just wanted it to be simple.

6. I had 6 beautiful bridesmaides.

7. Ryan and I went on a cruise for our honeymoon to Catalina and Ensenada. We didnt go far but we had a blast. It was perfect.

8. Our reception was at the Coronado Marriott. It was beautiful. We also had a ring ceremony before the reception with our families on the Marriott grounds just at the waters edge. I just love San Diego!

9. Not a single thing. I loved my wedding day. It could not have been more prefect.

10. No. Everyone told us that it gets freezer burned and tastes disgusting. So we ordered a fresh wedding cake top on our 1 yr anniversary.

11. We have been married now for 1 year, 7 months, and 16 days. And it has been the best 1 year, 7 months, and 16 days of my life!
