March 2013

Spring time is here!

Started the month with a little putting tournament for the Kiwanis Club (embarrassingly featured in the local newspaper is my bump attempting to Put!)

Surprise Easter Egg hunts (of the chocolate & crème variety) are the BEST!


Planted our little garden beds


Took a little Steamie stroll around Balboa Island.


Our High chair arrived- such a sweet gift from Steve’s family.


Babies first (in utero) 5k!  Well, just a walk, and at 7 months along, could almost be called a waddle!  We joined my dear friend Andrea’s “Team Turn Around & Bend over” for the 2013 Undy 5000 in San Diego.  We stayed near by at a little hotel & were able to walk to the starting line.  And for SOME REASON we seemed to attract a little attention as we crossed the street?!  Perhaps it was our awesome Team Steamie wardrobe modifications to the Team Turn  Around & Bend Over’s attire… matching pink leggings & purple Undies!  Hey- you invite Team Steamie to something called an undie run- you better believe we’ll bring it!     My Mom joined us as well, but for some reason she didn’t want to wear the matching tights!

It was a very fun event, and we were so proud to be part of a team to help honor Andrea’s mom, and support the efforts & raise awareness about colorectal cancer prevention & treatment!  Check out the Undy 5000 for more info, or other events.

The rocking chair arrived for Teenie Steamie’s room.  I assembled it- so lets hope it stays together during the nights ahead!


My awesome Mom and Mother in Law teamed up to host the MOST adorable baby shower.  They transformed the house into a resort.  It was a lovely day, we were able to enjoy the food, the drinks and the sweet treats, and I had a cozy shady seat to unwrap all the thoughtful presents for me & our sweet baby girl.  My only regret is that I didn’t run around and take pictures of everything before the party got going- so I only have a few snaps from the day.  But the baby & I felt SO loved.

The presents filled the nursery up- leaving me one question- where on earth will we put the baby!?  😉


And this is the ONE bare-bump photo I have, and while I normally wouldn’t share, I think in retrospect I’ll be happy to see it, since it’s SO crazy what the body can do.  Haha. And yes, my side of our room has been a MESS the whole pregnancy, and yes, I own 3 pairs of wiener dog pajamas.


Putting away all the shower goodies, my mom helped me wash & sort the clothes by size, so they’re all in the drawers ready to go once Teeny Steamie shows up.

Steve had a low-tech solution to watching DVR’d March Madness games, without the ticker on the top of the screen giving away the scores.


We finally picked up some seating for the back yard (thank you Costco!) Can’t wait for the yard party to enjoy our new outdoor space.


We did a quick trip up to LA  on St. Patrick’s day for the Clippers game, had  sausages as Wurstkuche with friends, enjoyed the game at staples (My first pro B-ball game ever!) and on the way home another quick stop at disneyland.

The crib FINALLY arrived, Steve & Danny assembled it!  Hooray!

We took a trip to Palm Springs to Celebrate Easter with the family.  Such a beautiful weekend, and I treated myself to a comfy dress I’ll be wearing all spring!

There was Novelty sized golf to be played, and THE birthday clown made an appearance.  (Eek!)
