Big Comeback

We got Simon a new little outfit for our big comeback to blogging. Check him out in his snappy new tie!
The weather here has taken a turn for the worse, being totally miserable, cold and snowy the past couple of days. The cold front has really put a damper on any interesting outings (and thus interesting blog material), but we're hopeful for April. John just got a new set of golf clubs and can't wait to hit the course and try them out. I'm part of a running group with Chicago Endurance Sports and am training for a 10 mile race in May and a couple of half marathons in the summer. Of course, all of these activities would be more fun if the weather would just cooperate with us!

Bad Bloggers

So we admit, we haven't been the best at updating for, oh, the entirety of 2009. But, there really hasn't been anything cool to blog about. We've been total hermits this winter and haven't gotten out to do anything on the weekends.

This has been the first nice weekend in Chicago in forever. We spent lots of time outside, walking around the neighborhood and grabbing dinner at one of our new fave pizza spots, Frasca. Hopefully our lives will become more eventful now that the weather is improving, and we will have more to post about.

New Arrival!

We have a new nephew! Beckett Timothy O'Halloran arrived on Friday morning (his parents are Megan's stepsister, Natalie, and her husband, Sean). He's super cute, and could be his big sister's twin (that hung out in there for an extra four years). We can't wait to meet the little guy!

Mexico Vacation!!!

We are tanned and rested from our great trip to the Maroma area of Mexico, just north of Playa del Carmen and about 30 miles south of Cancun. It was awesome. Our resort was all inclusive, but not cheesy like you would think. The beach was beautiful. The food was always very good and even fantastic at times. We highly recommend Secrets Maroma.
