Mad Men

We don't have tv. So, we find shows on Netflix/Hulu and see what we think. The past few weeks Brenan and I started watching Mad Men. We LOVE it. A lot. It's addicting like Desperate Housewives, but it's a drama. Between the two of us we managed to watch all of the episodes very quickly. Brenan would stay up super late watching the episodes and later he would fill me in on what I missed and vice-versa when I watched without him.  This show is ridiculously addicting and captivating. From what I've read online, it is very true to the time period. I love all of the clothes and I wonder what it would be like to wear hats all the time. Everyone wore hats and it was so classy. The dresses, the hair-dos, the jewelry, the suits...I love it all.

Banana Republic released a Mad Men collection and needless to say, I had to buy a dress. Brenan bought me this dress:

It isn't from the collection, but it's very similar. The one that was similar didn't look as good on me. My next dress will be from the collection. I want this one:

2 months!

Our little Julia is growing up so quickly! Just this week she started smiling ALL THE TIME and she has started "talking" a lot more as well. She loves to hold her head up and look around and she has even begun following things more with her head. She can hold her head up for awhile, but it still bobbles, which is cute. We still call her our little teradactyl since she makes the weirdest screech-like noises when she is drowsy/sleeping. This past week-ish she has moved up from newborn clothes and diapers into 0-3 month clothes and size 1 diapers. She more easily falls asleep in her swing, which is nice for me, and she is starting to sleep in her bed more often. Hopefully we'll have her transitioned into her crib in her room in the next month.

 Here we are at the doctor's office, just before she got her shots.
 My little ducky :) She loves bath time!
All smiles!!!

Family vacation

 Here is dad and Julia at The Bellagio. We went there for their buffet on Friday as we were leaving Vegas. We stopped in Vegas instead of finishing the trip because Julia wasn't feeling well and our first 5 hr stretch took almost 7 hours because we had to keep stopping.
 Here is Julia with Great Grandma Cole. We got to spend 2 days with our grandparents so they could meet Julia.
 Here she is in the cute yellow outfit they bought her. It's hard to tell but it has the cutest ruffle sleeves!
 This is one of the paintings that grandpa did on their back patio area.
 This one is of Colorado.
 Family photo with the  grand parents.

 We stopped to see Amber and the boys one day of our trip. We had to trick Brave to smile, but it turned out to be such a cute picture of all of the cousins.
He kept asking if he could hold the baby, so I helped him "hold" the baby. So stinkin' cute. He got a kick out of how small she was compared to him.

It was a great (yet long) trip but we were glad we got to see our family. Plus it was our 3 year anniversary. We went to the Paris buffet for dinner and it was magnificent! The next morning for breakfast we did the Bellagio buffet, and they had the best pancakes ever! We totally stayed at a ghetto hotel on the strip, but on funny note, they had "dealertainers" in the middle of the casino, so we got to see Elvis, Adam Lambert, and  Shakira perform. Vegas makes me laugh.
