We built Alex's first fort today. He loved it.

We spent a long time saying "one, two three" and then falling into the mound of pillows. He loved it so much that he's been walking around the house saying "uh, uh, see" and then falling where ever he is, pillows or not. Funny boy.

hello again.

A few of my friends and fellow bloggers have made it their New Year's resolution to update their blog more. And while that wasn't one of my goals, I've been a little inspired to keep up just a little better.
SO, on that note, let me fill you in on our current lives. Ben is in the middle of his second semester of law school. He is doing well and likes it for the most part (yay!). He occasionally tries to explain things he's learning about but it's so beyond my scope of understanding and interest that I literally don't retain a word of what he says. So I can't tell you what he's studying or what he's learning. You'll just have to ask him.
I spend a lot of time at home with Alex but I also work part time at The Gap. Although The Gap isn't a long-term job, it definitely serves its purpose- it gets me out of the house, meeting new people and making a little extra money.
We're also having a lot of fun exploring our new city. We try to find something new to do about every week. So far we've found some great little parts of the city and some not-so-great parts. We've discovered some really yummy restaurants (mmmmm Chinese food...) and some great stores. Ben even went ANTIQUING with me last weekend!! Not only that, but he actually asked me if we could go! It was such a momentous occasion I even brought my camera.

This mall, as well as another one in the area is HUGE. It goes on forever.

Ben did end up buying something for himself! We also got his mom a mother's day present.
