A quick trip to Cali to see my boo Matty

 I have a bad habit of blogging pretty much only when I should be doing 567 other things--mainly 1,500+ pictures to go through/edit and packing up our entire house. No biggie. ;) They say that moving and having (in our case, adopting) a baby are two of the most stressful things to go through, and we are definitely feeling the pressure!

Here's a quick adoption update for yall.
I am flying out to Iowa in a few weeks to formally meet our birthmom (yay!). But it honestly feels like we have known eachother for years. We text several times a week, and I just love her. While I'm there I get to go to her 4D ultrasound! I don't think I even fully understand what 4D means, but I know it's going to be so so cool. We are also meeting with our attorney to go over the adoption details. And you know there will be some shopping and fun girl stuff going on, too! While I was in CA, Matt and I had a good talk about how freaking excited and nervous we are about being parents. The thought of having another human being completely dependent on us is intimidating! The more we talk to other parents, this seems like a very common emotion to be feeling, so that was definitely comforting. Everything is still going really well with the adoption.

Last week, I visited Matt in Stockton! We stayed a couple of nights in a hotel and a night at his apartment with his roommate, Nick. Nick is truly a gem, and is one of the funniest people I've ever met. He's been such a  fun roommate and friend to Matt! We love you Uncle Nick! I'll always treasure the moments going through the girls on Tinder and listening to your cheasy convos and watching you roast almonds. LOL!
We also stayed with our lovely friends, The Guzy's!

A 6 year old took this pic of us at the Oakland Temple. I was very impressed with her photog skills!
My fam and I can probably list the amount of pictures that my hair looks decent on 2 fingers. This is one of them haha. One of my nicknames is "Mushroom" because 90% of the time my hair is in a mushroom bun on the top of my head. 

Promise me that you will go to an Indian food place and order "chicken tikka masala." It is so divine.
Best feeling... :)
We went to a minor league baseball game to watch the Stockton Ports play. 
1. We were burning UP. 2. Players got on base maybe 4 times the entire game. -__- 3. Guys in baseball uniforms=hot.

Banana split Dippin Dots!!! I almost walked through a huge pile of a child's puke to get these lovely bits of heaven.
Can't wait to be with you FOR GOOD next week, Matteo!
