Sleepless Night

Last night I was awoken at 2AM by two drunken hooligans fighting in the street. I quickly jumped out of bed and ran to the window. No punches were being thrown, but they were all up in each other’s grills. Being a dude I was quite entertained and excited by the prospect that I might witness a fight. As time went on the two became less violent, a kiss and make up seemed imminent. As not to be awoken without good cause, I decided to “stir the pot”. I made a beeline to the fridge and grabbed a handful of eggs. I crept out onto my balcony, staying in the shadows, and started hurling eggs at them. Just in case they had some crazy ability to scale walls, I retained to the shadows. After the third egg was thrown they realized what was happening. They yelled some quick obscenities then awkwardly began to run away. As they were fleeing I stepped out of the shadows and threw two more eggs for good measure. Then, with as tough as a look as I could muster, I flexed and looked down upon them in my newfound glory! Those shadows quickly became a distant memory to me. The 1600 block of South Prairie Avenue won’t be seeing them anytime soon.

Now, I don’t want to say what I did was heroic – but, it was pretty damn close!

All I'm going to say is that you'll have to ask Brady about the name and image. It's all his.

Not much new going on with us. Brady got his picture taken for work the other day. Unfortunately, the make-up lady called in sick. Yep, they were going to have a make-up lady come in and do some touching up. We finally got cable hooked up in our condo. So now Brady has something to do in the evenings...watch NBA playoffs and eat black beans and potatoes. I'm pretty sure he thinks he's died and gone to heaven. Except that we don't have a couch yet, so he has to watch TV on our IKEA chair.

I'm counting down the days left at work (6 1/2!!) and getting excited for some time in Hawaii. Luckily we've had some beautiful weather this week and I've been able to get some sun (meaning freckles and red) the past few days.

Post Numero Uno

Well....here it is folks. It's been a long time coming, but I finally got harassed enough to do it. I've been reading everyone else's blogs for a long time, but never felt I had anything exciting enough to blog about. Apparently moving to Chicago and being pregnant qualify as being things you guys want to hear about.

Rest assured, Brady has assured me he will contribute to the blog with his wit and humor and that this will not be a cheesy, cutesy blog. (However, there may be some of those posts from time to time for the grandparents out there. They'll eat that stuff up...right mom??)

For now, I'm still here in Utah, staying at my parent's house. My last day at work is May 1st. Brady moved out to our condo on April 30th and has been working out there. He'll fly back to Utah on May 1st, then we'll be in Hawaii until May 12th. I'll head out to Chicago around May 15th. It's been crazy figuring out the logistics of it all, but things have worked out. Luckily, time has gone by pretty quickly. Brady will have to fill you in on all the fun stuff he's been doing with out me!

I've got the camera here with me, so no Chicago pictures for now. They'll come I promise...it's not very exciting right now anyway. Lots of boxes and clutter in the condo still. If anyone wants to offer their interior decorating skills, we'd be happy to accept....

Hopefully I can use all my upcoming spare time to learn how to actually make our blog look decent. Until then, you'll all have to deal with this plain-jane template I carefully selected. Anyone got any good resources for this? Let me know.
