NYC



I was super lame with taking pictures in NY, but it seriously was so much fun! Last time I went I took Kate which was fine, but lets be honest it is way more fun with no kids.

Every 2 years my little sister Megan's dance team, The Dance Club, goes to NYC to compete in this national competition called NYCDA. I went when I was in high school and it is so much fun.
There team won 1st place! It was so exciting.
In our spare time we shopped till we dropped and ate at some really yummy restaurants, (thank you Kelsey).
We also went to a few Broadway shows. Our favorites were, How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying, Sister Act and Memphis. I seriously LOVE musicals.
Cafe Lalo's


I splurged on this necklace that I have been really wanting from Helen Ficalora and after we walked across the street and celebrated my purchase with these amazing Lobster Rolls....
(once again thank you Kelsey)
DBGB a new trendy restaurant in NYC. Most expensive burger I have ever eaten, but well worth it!
National Champions!

Nixon Family Reunion, Winter Park CO.

We just got back from a great family reunion in Winter Park, CO. All of Mike's siblings and their families were there. It has been 5 years since they have had everyone together. Kate was seriously in heaven with all her cousins. We stayed in these great condos and did fun activities everyday. I came a few days late because I was in NYC with my mom.
We had such a great time, thank you Laura and Clair!
All the girls... We took family pictures and these are what we took on the side. I was so excited to take family pictures 7 1/2 months pregnant. NOT

Ice cream bribery after family pictures
Unfortunately there were a few accidents. The worst was Tim, Mike's youngest brother, flipped on his mountain bike and broke his wrist and collarbone. It was so sad. He had to get surgery when he got home.
While I was shopping and playing in NYC, Mike, his parents and one sister drove 17 hours to Colorado. Mike seriously wins the best dad of the year award

Goodbye Houston


Our last month in houston was crazy! Trying to pack, but keep our house looking good for showings was seriously the worst. Luckily, we were able to rent our town home out a week before we were planning on leaving, so we really could start packing.
All our friends were so nice and helped us out so much. We are really going to miss our friends in Houston. They are the best!

While Mike, Kate, his dad and a few guys moved us out of our house. My girlfriends threw me the most amazing baby shower ever! It was so much fun and they didn't forget one detail. I loved every second of it!
A few of my friends


I am sure I will have more pictures of the shower, but all I can say is Thank YOU so much! The shower was so much fun and I am grateful that this little guy will have some cute clothes to wear next year. Since are budget is drastically about to change!
Last ice cream outing with her best buddy Reagan
This was how Kate had to eat the last few days before we moved
Last preschool at our house. Kate, Reagan, and Rosalie playing. Kate really misses all her friends she is alway asking where they are. I tell her Texas, and she says, "why?"

Good practice. Kate loves baby Anna
