Why hello January...

Lets just pause a minute & take in the fact that it is already January 11th.  The first 1/3 of the month is over.  That is just insane.  A million things (all good!) have been going on in my life, which yall wouldn't know about because I have yet to have my first post in 2012 yet.  Oops, my bad.  A life update is definitely in order.
Let me start off this post by introducing you guys to the MOST exciting thing to happen in 2012 so far.

Reese Erin was born!!!!!!!!!!

Our 2nd Niece, Reese, was born last Wednesday.  Isn't she just so incredibly precious??  Kevin & I went straight over to the hospital after work the night she was born so we could meet Riley's new baby sister!

I know I look super pensive, but I'm always petrified that I might break a newborn.  They are just so fragile.  Kevin, on the other hand, continues to think he is the Baby Whisperer.

Such a natural.
As much as it pains me to admit it, Reese got fussy while I was holding her, but as soon as Kevin took her, she was fine.  And yes, he is still glowing over that little tidbit.  Men.  Sigh.  

Anywho, we've also been super busy cheering on our CATS.  

Oh Heyyyy Doron... :)
We're ranked #2.  15-1.  Boom.  So...How's your fav basketball team doing this year??
I'm sorry, I can't help but be a little obnoxious over the fact that it's good to be a Wildcat fan.  I feel like I've earned the right to be a bit pious because I did attend UK during the down years, which was every bit as painful as it sounds.  It would be like if Alabama was all of a sudden terrible at Football.  It just doesn't happen.  And to say that fans were cranky with a losing record would be the understatement of the century.  Therefore, it feels flippin fantastic to cheer on such amazing teams again.
Chi Omega for life :)
Truth be told, on gamedays, it doesn't matter who we are playing, every bar is absolutely packed w/ UK fans, which makes every game beyond fun to watch.  I was lucky enough to watch this past game with one of my college bffs (& sorority sister & former roommate), Erin!  We're lucky that South Carolina didn't give us much of a game because we probably talked through about 96% of that match up.  Love love love my college girls.  

As all married people know, marriage is all about give & take.  After frequenting the bar scene all throughout college,  I can only handle being in a bar for so long, until I am ready to pound my head against a wall.   So, once UK had won & it was looking like the Bengals were gonna lose, I was able to talk Kevin into heading over to Whole Foods for some Vino.

So, although I know I've mentioned it before, if you have a Whole Foods in your town, make SURE to ask about their wine tastings.  The one in Lexington does FREE (Check it, Bargain Blonde) wine & liquor tastings every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.  And when I say tasting, I mean each pour is the equalivlent of 1/4 of a glass.  Plus, they will tell you all about the origin of the wine, the best food pairings with each, etc.  Obviously, I take advantage of this as frequently as possible.  I think Kevin might have been embarrassed when about 1/2 the room knew my name when I walked in.  To Me, on the other hand, it felt like I was the long lost cast member on Cheers.  I loveeeee it!  

So as you all can see, between work & school starting back, gaining a new niece, and keeping our UK fan dedication at an adequate level, I have been busy.  But, now that I'm back in a routine, expect some quality posts coming your way soon.  Thats about it for now!  xoxoxoo


  1. What?! I had no idea they do free wine tastings. Soon, they will know my name too : )

  2. Oh, the Bengals. I keep telling my husband (a newly converted fan) that he'd better get used to disappointment in the pro football arena. There's always next season?!

    Amen to the Whole Foods wine dept!

  3. Obviously I need to hit up Whole Foods. I like being able to try new wines w/out paying $$$$, haha. My hubs has the same baby fever Kevin has, I believe...haha

  4. Congratulations on your new niece! I know y'all are excited!

  5. I was sitting here thinking to myself.. Wine tastings at Whole Foods that's awesome! Until I remembered that Colorado sucks and doesn't allow wine to be sold in Grocery stores. LAME. I miss when I lived in Texas and could pick up a bottle while grocery shopping in Wal-mart. Boo.

  6. Congratulations on your beautiful niece! Reese is adorable and I love her name! Glad your back :)

  7. How did I not know that this baby had Reese's name. I mean, I know you emailed about visiting a baby Reesey but I didn't know it was a newborn. I thought it was some niece I just never knew about. Maybe they can get married one day and be Reese and Reese! Too weird???

    Ummmm I need to find out when Whole Foods does this by me because you know whose name they are going to know in the Texas location. That's right ... Lindsey Lee. WHY DON'T WE LIVE IN THE SAME CITY?????????? DAMN carol. Get out of Lexington and come move to Dallas. NOW. Shout outs make my heart happy.

  8. stumbled on your blog and just wanted to show you some blog luv! def loving the pics of your new niece!! super adorable!!

  9. Your new niece is absolutely precious!! I've got to remember the Whole Foods wine tasting- thanks for the reminder!
