Cincinnati Blate!

Ahhh! Y'all, Tuesday night was epic. 
Eighteen, yes 18, Cincinnati Bloggers got together for a huge blate and it was fantastic! 
I am still so thrilled that I'm apart of this not-so-little group! I got to meet familiar faces that I feel like I've known forever and some brand new ones. 
Can you believe that there are even more ladies that couldn't join us Tuesday night?
Cincinnati is the place to be, ladies.

 Kayla | Me | Erin
I cannot even tell you how excited I was to meet Erin and Kayla! I have followed both of their blogs for so long and I'm SO happy to have finally met them in person! They are both just as sweet in 'real life' as they are on their blogs. Thank you for genuinely being yourself! 

Kayla, you're probably the sweetest person I have ever met. I loved talking with you about our lives and how we aren't ashamed to be young and married. 22 year old married women can have fun too, yo!

Erin, you are one of my all time favorite bloggers. You have such a kind heart and I just adore you! I'm so happy for you and your sister on the official adoption and thank you for sharing pictures of your precious niece. I can tell how ecstatic you all are! I love that you're originally from my hometown and that we actually know (at least) one mutual person outside of blogging. Yay, we're actual in real life friends now!

 Ashley | Me | Heather
I actually went to high school with both of these ladies and they're freakin' hilarious! I don't think I've laughed that hard in a while. Thank you for making the drive down and back so incredibly entertaining, I can't wait to hang out with you both again. Of course next time we'll have to add Cayden and Wyatt to the mix.

 Allison | Heather | Ashley | Me
Allison, I am SO, so happy to have finally met you! I have loved following your blog over the years and I'm so happy to consider you a friend. I hope you and your husband enjoy seeing the Mary Poppins play, I can't wait to hear all about it! You are one of the cutest pregnant ladies I have ever seen; and I can't wait to see little Aiden! I pray that God continues to bless you and your family in all that you do.
Katie | Sarah
Jessica | Jax
Katie, ecks! I have followed your blog for wayyy longer than I've blogged myself and I was thrilled to finally meet you! How is it possible that you're even sweeter than I imagined?! Thank you for not judging me for how giddy I was over meeting you! Also, please share your secrets on how fabulous you look after having Miss Charlie?! No, seriously, I need to know the secret. Isagenix?

Sarah, I was stoked to meet you! I didn't realize how tall you were though! I mean, I know I'm short and all but dang, why aren't you a model again? For our next blate PLEASE bring Floyd. :)

Jessica, this was my first time being introduced to you and your blog; I'm so glad you picked the seat next to mine! Congratulations on your one month of marriage! I'm so excited to start following your blog and getting to know you better. 

Jax, it was so nice meeting you, I'm so glad that you sat across from me and that we were able to talk. You are SO sweet, and seriously gorgeous! I wish we could have chatted more. And, I'm totally serious about doing a combined photo shoot with you and Kayla

Whitney, Brittany, Liz, Brittany, Elisa, Emma, and Meredith, I'm so sorry we didn't get to talk Tuesday! I'm following all of your blogs now and I'm so excited to get to know all of you by our next blate!

Wyatt's 2nd Birthday

I cannot believe I have a two year old.
It feels like just yesterday he was my 5lb 7oz newborn.
Over the past two years I have grown so much as a mother, wife and person.
I have my little Wyatt Asher to thank for that. He is the most precious gift I have ever been given.
My little baby has transformed into a little boy in what feels like overnight!
He's so independent and gives the most wonderful bear hugs.

You've probably heard people say that they didn't know what love truly was until they became a parent well that is absolutely true in my case. That's not to say that I didn't love my husband before I had Wyatt because I did but oh buddy does it change what you think you already know. I honestly didn't know what love was until I had Wyatt, until I felt that unconditional love I have for my son and seeing my husband become a father.

Seeing KC become a father made me fall even more in love with him, seeing the bond that they have makes my heart so incredibly happy. As much as I like to act upset because Wyatt wants KC more than he wants me it makes my heart feel so full seeing them two together.

Army Picnic at Coney Island

This year KC's unit of the Ohio National Guard had their Summer Picnic at Coney Island!
I was especially excited because I had never been there.
Wyatt had a blast! There were only about five rides that he could actually get on but that didn't bother him.
There is also a wave pool and some water slides but it was all rainy/cloudy that day so that was out of the question. Definitely a possibility for this (or next) summer though! 
As much as I hate the idea and realization that it's only a matter of time before KC deploys, I'm thankful for the time and effort that KC's unit puts in for the families of the soldiers.

Yay for the weekend! We actually have plans for Saturday that I am over the moon excited about.
We have tickets to attend Spirit Song at Kings Island on Saturday!
I'm a music junkie; including Christian music, it just makes my heart happy! Toby Mac and Jeremy Camp are two of the performers and I am just so so excited to go and experience this.

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! Make some memories! : )

Cincinnati Red's Flag Ceremony

Remember when KC was given the opportunity of being apart of the opening of the American Flag at the Cincinnati Bengals game
Well, his entire unit of the Ohio National Guard was chosen to be apart of the Flag Ceremony at the Cincinnati Reds game (June 11th)! 
It's such an awesome thing to watch and even better to have my husband be apart of it. 
I'm so proud of him and the man that he's become! #mushypost
It was actually only the second time I've been to a Reds game. I wasn't able to cross it off my Summer Bucket List from last year but I'm excited I was able to this year
It was fun; he got to do this thing on the field while I got to hang out with my friend Ashley.
I'm excited to take Wyatt to a game once he's older!  

I hope you guys' have a wonderful Thursday; I'm suuuuper stoked for this evening because I will finally be seeing The Fault in Our Stars tonight with a girl friend! I am so excited for this sob fest!
Also, if you haven't read The Fault in Our Stars yet; you NEED to! It's an amazing book!
