After we celebrated our 7th anniversary in June we decided it was time to start our little family! We weren’t really “trying”, but we weren’t not trying either. We figured it would take a while and we were taking our time. Well, it didn’t take too long! I found out I was pregnant at the beginning of October!

baby!

We are so excited! Baby is due to arrive June 11th!

The month started out with wine tasting in Temecula! (we drank an abnormal amount of booze over a 3 month period!)

Love my girls!

more wine!

Okay, the next two events in October deserve their own posts!

September was another fun month…we went to a SD Padres game with a group from work! It was a fun night, but sadly the Padres lost! Yet again, we stayed in downtown. This time we stayed at Hard Rock Hotel. It was awesome!! I can’t wait to stay there again sometime.

Next up was the Brad Paisley concert with Traci and Joe. It was the most fun I had all summer!

Complete with Bud Light tall cans! Typical.

Amazingly I only posted twice the entire year of 2010! Wow, I’ve gotten lazy. My last post was in July so, I’m going to back up to where I left off and start with August.

August was a fun month and quite a blur! I’m pretty sure it was a party every weekend. We started it off by going to the horse races in Del Mar. We went with a group from my office and it was a blast!

The B-52’s were the featured concert after the races!

Next up we went to a Toby Keith concert in San Diego! We decided to make a weekend of it and stayed in the Gaslamp at Indigo Hotel!

The hotel was nice and the concert was awesome!

We had so much fun at the Balloon & Wine Festival yesterday! We got up EARLY to watch the balloon launch and meet up with my dad, his girlfriend and her daughter.

After that we came home to chill for a while. My dad came over to hang out too until they could check into their hotel. THEN we decided we had to take them to Sweet Lumpy’s for a BBQ lunch.

I ordered the tri-tip burrito and I have to admit that the nacho cheese was the selling point for me. It came with freshly made fries too! I was only able to eat a little less than half the burrito.

Matt had my fave – the pulled pork sandwich!

After lunch my dad and crew headed to their hotel and Matt and I decided a nap was in order. What was planned to be a 20 minute power nap turned into a 2 hour sleep-fest. Oops. But we made it back to the festival around 4:30. Just in time for some fun wine tasting and exploring!

wine tasting

Only made it through a couple of wine tastings before I switched over to beer. Shock-Top to be exact. Beer just seemed more refreshing in the 90 degree heat than wine. Although the wines I tried from Thornton and Wilson Creek were ah-mazing!

For dinner I went with a BBQ Chicken Pizza from CPK and Matt had a tri-tip sandwich.

Matt says relax!

We met back up with my dad & co and listened to the Gin Blossoms! I think I know exactly 3 of their songs. But it was fun to watch.

After the concert we headed over to watch the balloon glow. Somehow Alyssa and I convinced a balloon operator-guy to let us in a basket. We know people.

I posted all the pics from the day on Flickr, so feel free to go check them out!

I’m a little frustrated because this morning I wrote this great post about our ride around Silverwood Lake and now it’s gone! I SAVED the draft because I still had to upload the photos and embed the video. So annoying. I’m just going to blame it on Matt even though he’s been at work all day. That’s how I roll.

Anyways I’m going to make this one short…we rode around Silverwood Lake on Saturday. In Aaron’s Manx. The end.

Just kidding. So I’ve been wanting to get a helmet cam for Matt when he rides his motorcycle, but I didn’t really want to spend the dough on a good one. Well, I found an Action Cam on Amazon Gold Box a few weeks ago for $50 and ordered it. I wouldn’t say it produces the greatest quality videos, but for the price it’s awesome! The camera will record 1 hour with a 2GB SD card. OK, back to the ride…Matt had the idea to attach the camera to the Manx so we could shoot our entire ride. We ended up with over 5 hours of video, so Matt sped it up to make a short 22 minute video. I’m pretty fond of the part at about 11 minutes in when all the guys are running to the bathroom. I suggest you watch the entire video, but make sure you set aside 22 minutes of your life first. Oh and wait 30 minutes after eating to watch otherwise you might get sick.

Matt and I did’nt really have any plans for the 4th of July this year, so I decided to call up my friend Tracy and invite myself to do whatever she was doing. That’s how I roll. I’m not ashamed. Her and her family just so happened to have a drive up to Santiago Peak planned for that afternoon. And we were invited to meet them up there.

Matt and I didn’t even know Santiago Peak existed before then. They were all headed up through Orange County, while Matt and I found a trail that started in Corona. It took us at least 2 hours to make it up to the peak. It was so much fun!

There are several antennas on the peak.

The views from the top were amazing. We could see downtown LA, San Clemente, Palomar, Ontario…all over southern CA!

We a fun picnic lunch and a little wine at the top! So fun and I can’t wait to do it again. Although parts of the trail going up were questionable in the truck. So, on the way down we followed the Carlsons back down through Orange County.

I made my sister a crazy-good ice cream dessert for her birthday.

But she was sad because I only put 9 candles instead of 26 on it.

Then she spit on it.
