Russ visits The Big Easy

New Orleans is our favorite place and we have so much history there. I realized I had a huge crush on Evan while in New Orleans! We ended up going back (as a couple) to a few Pi Kapp date parties, my 20th birthday, several road-trips, New Years, Running with the Bulls, and he even proposed there!!! New Orleans meant Hand Grenades, Lucky Dogs, masks & boas, dancing all night, Clover Grill for an after dancing snack, and just TONS O' FUN!  Here are some pre-baby pics in The Big Easy...

This is us gearing up for running with the bulls. It's just like Spain except instead of real bulls, you are being chased by Roller Derby Girls with nerf bats.

Here is Evan with 2 of the friendlier bulls after the race.
This is our standard "Lucky Dog Sharing" picture on New Years Eve. (We flew in just for the night because we had no plans. Luckily we had some good friends join us last minute too. Remember the days when you could fly somewhere last minute? Me neither.)

Sidenote: I am sad to say that I don't have any of the proposal pictures saved on this computer. Also, it would be funny to see us as 20 year olds running around Bourbon Street. Maybe Evan can help me scan some later.

So, as you can see, we are in love with this place! We were thrilled that we could take Russ to New Orleans last month! Taking a baby is a whole new ballgame but it was just as fun! We had an amazing time even if there were no hand grenades, masks, or boas.

First Post- Halloween Season

Halloween is basically a season at our house. Pre-baby, we would take out all THREE of our costume boxes and decide which ones we would wear to our various October events. We have everything from bedazzled Elvis outfits to inflatable costumes with built in fans. Evan and I even won best costume for our Dog and Beth (the bounty hunters) outfits.

Now, I have been kicked to the curb because Russ Man looks much cuter in Halloween gear. This year Evan has ordered multiple costumes for the little guy.  I know it's not quite the 31st but we have already started celebrating.
                 "BATTman" and Robin will have more accessories when not at a work function.
Evan proud of his parrot purchase. Will be paired with pirates soon! Happy early Halloween!
