So I didn't die.......

I cannot believe that it has been over a year since I have touched this blog. I have been reading but not posting. So what has been going on in the Upton house?

~Lots of family time. Family reunions, family softball games, trips to the lake, bowling, baby showers, and many, many birthday parties.

~ Visits with friends from Columbia

~ My only living grandparent, Noma Gabel, turned 90. We had a huge celebration for her. Being a legend in this town for running a restaurant for 59 years gets you quite the following.

~ Family medical issues - surgeries, close calls, and casts (more on this to come)

~ We celebrated our first anniversary

~ Chris was baptized

~ Enjoying our beautiful puppies

~ My sister moved to Oklahoma so we went from seeing her and her boys from several times a week to once every 3-4 weeks. What an adjustment. But it makes us cherish our time with them that much more when they visit, even if it means skipping some work to have lunch with them

~ My maid of honor and great friend Maggie got engaged. I will be returning the favor and will be traveling to Texas next April to be a bridesmaid in her wedding

~ Chris bought me a bow and I am learning how to shoot it. Its taking some time, but I hope to get as accurate with the bow as I am with my pistol

~ Work has been busy. Most days I love my job, but there are some times where I hate hearing the stories that I do. Most days my desk looks like this.

~ Loving my life with this wonderful man! I couldn't ask for anything more.

In the short, that is how life is going. My goal is to better at blogging. Often I sit in the house in the evening while Chris watches TV, no reason why I cannot grab the computer to blog a few thoughts.
