Karl's 1st Birthday

So Karl's first birthday is on November 24th which happens to also be Thanksgiving, which is appropriate because I am very thankful for the little guy. I have decided to dedicate this post to all the great Karls that puppy has to look up to.

As a big time Jazz fan I must start with the Mailman, also know as Karl Malone.

I love Karl Malone as any good Jazz fan should, I mean he was MVP of the league twice and took the Jazz to the NBA finals twice. His final season was with the Lakers but it is easy to forget that when you think Malone would have won a Championship for the Jazz if it wasn't for that one player, whats his name? Oh yeah, Michael Jordan.

Next Karl on the list is one of the biggest names in Fashion and total icon, It is Karl Lagerfeld.

If you have never herd of him you have probably heard of the fashion houses he has worked. Karl Lagerfeld oversees the creative direction of both Chanel and Fendi. He is a fashion icon and makes every other Karl out there seem a bit more fashionable.

The last Karl I will mention on my list spells his name with a C but I wont hold that against him, I also wont let the fact that he is a fictional character in an animated movie keep him off the list. It is Carl Fredricksen also known as the old man from UP.

Up is such a sweet movie and I absolutely love Carl in it. The montage of Carl and Ellie's relationship is one of the greatest movie montages ever. Love that movie and I love Carl in it.

So there you have it. There are some pretty great Karl's out there. Lots of people for our little Karl to look up to.

(Look at him in this picture, he looks so grown up)

Happy Birthday Karl!

Its getting cold in here

Wow it has been a while since I last posted. Life has been about the same. It has started to cool down here in Scottsie. This has been a good and bad thing. Some days you walk outside and it is beautiful 70+ degrees with blue sky's and I think it does not get any better than this. Then other days you walk outside and it is cold and I cant help but think "Oh no, its not supposed to be cold down here, that's why people live here because it is never cold. I am not ready for cold weather yet. I still want to hang out by the pool and walk around without a sweater." Alas as we move closer to winter even Scottsie starts to get cold, I need to come to terms with that.

As the weather is changing, Eric and I are preparing for another change. We have started looking at house and are hoping to soon become home owners. We are really excited about buying a home and cant wait to move out of our apt into a place with a yard and a place for Karl to run around. I will keep you all updated with our status, we are just in the early stages but I will let you know when we get more serious.
