What We've Been Up To | Our Year In Review 2019

So, I've been a little absent around here and for good reason! We took the Christmas Break off and then we welcomed our Newest babe in early January. Adjusting to a life with a toddler and a newborn has been obviously taking up most of my time. But I am ready to get back on here, because honestly, I've missed the blogging and sharing my life with you all!
Since I have been absent for quite some time, here is a little recap of our year which also includes our holidays, what we've been up to Don't worry, there will be a whole post about our new littlest guy in the weeks to come!

January 2019
In early January I threw my best friend her bachelorette weekend. It was so much fun, because we did dinner and drinks as well as a Barre3 class in our hometowns and then headed to New York City for a night in the city.
Also, in January our house had sold after being on the market since July 2018. We were scrambling trying to find the perfect home, and thought we were going to have to settle or move in with my parents. Then we found the literally perfect home with everything we could have dreamed of!
February 2019

We headed to Jamaica to celebrate my best friends wedding! It was so beautiful and it was great to get away to warmer temperatures and take a break from packing up our house to move. 

March 2019
WE MOVED!!! It was a weekend from hell- to say the least and filled with so many emotions. We had movers come on Thursday to pack up our home, Friday we closed on both houses and our belongings were suppose to be delivered on Saturday morning, however due to trouble with the moving companies truck, they called and told us they would not be coming until Tuesday. That was not going to happen, so after threatening and alot of yelling on my part, they agreed to come Sunday morning. Oh yeah, we also had two snow storms through the weekend, but we did it with the help from our family and friends and we love our new home! Which I just realized I never did a home tour still.. ya know pregnancy brain. So look forward to that to come in 2020!

April 2019

I shared our playroom on the blog, and looking now, so much has changed in there already! 

We celebrated Joey's 2nd birthday with a fireman theme birthday party! You can check out the whole post here!

May 2019
We offically open our pool for the summer, and kicked it off with our first party on Memorial Day weekend!

Summer 2019
The Summer was kind of a blur. We spent a lot of time by the pool, with friends, and getting the house in order!
Of course we worked the Funnel Cake stand again this year.

Over Labor Day weekend we had a gender reveal party with our friends and family and reveled to everyone baby Melch would be a BOY!

We celebrated Trick or Treating in our neighborhood and it was so much fun! Joey was a ghost and charger was a ghost buster.
