Our blog was tagged so here is 7 facts about us. Enjoy and maybe you will learn something about us!

1. We play the lotto every once in awhile with a dream of opening a Rudy's BBQ in Houston (and maybe some other plans too)
2. We are pretty sure our opposite skills would help us win the Amazing Race.
3. We both grew up going to T Bar M Camp as campers and met there as counselors in college.
4. We both play tennis... though one is slightly better (can you say State Champ, Nationals Champ, and Aggie tennis player? I like to brag on my hubby.)
5. We have two dogs, Maddy and Cooper. Maddy is a beautiful bird dog mix that I got when we were just dating and I lived by myself... from a Wal-Mart parking lot of all places. We got Cooper, our active chocolate lab after we were married for a few months.
6. We enjoy our wine and spent part of our honeymoon in the California Wine Country.
7. This spring we will celebrate our 3rd anniversary and also welcome our baby boy into our world.

We've been tagged...

We've been tagged by Kendall (my best friend growing up from Georgetown) and her husband Justin. They are on an incredible journey to adopt their first child from Ethiopia - check out their blog!

Seven random factoids about us coming soon...

Work in progress

Thank you Mike and Evan for helping us work on our nursery this past weekend. And for teaching Dash a little about power tools! Thanks Amy and Teresa for sharing your husbands with us too! Just a little painting to go and we should be pretty close to finished with our little guy's nursery.

Here's some proof that Dash used the saw at least once! I did hear he got pretty good with the nail gun.

We made it!

Thank you to Dash's parents for joining us (and thousands more) on the JDRF Walk to Cure Diabetes this past weekend. I made it! Well, the shorter route anyways. It is still hard for us to grasp that next year we will be pushing a stroller at the walk.

Halfway through, with a "what was I thinking doing this 6 months pregnant" look on my face

Yes, I am embarrassed to admit to I broke down and visiting these. Don't worry, I used Purell as soon as we got to the car.

And the best for last...

As perfect evidence that men will always be boys... enjoy this picture of my husband attempting to go down the fireman pole at the farm. Let's just say the Connells aren't know for having small 'hips' and he definitely got stuck.
