Hello fellow bloggers, I am excited to say that this will be my first post on our blog. (probably my last). Wow, I must say, I can see how you all get addicted to this. I mean the nostalgic feeling I get typing this is amazing....because I know that so many of you have been twidling your thumbs and checking our blog everyday for the next update of our juicy lives. This is Brock, if you didn't catch on to that already and I have some news to announce and told my sweet wife that I would write something about it, since I made her wait so long to say something.

This summer Arrienne and I will be moving to Southern Germany. For four months I will be working for a company called Bosch (they make blenders, car parts, washer/dryers pretty much everything you can think of). I will be an office intern and will be assisting in the packaging technology division as they prepare for the upcoming year. (That is about all I wanted to write about what I actually would be doing without going into a bunch of details). Anyway we are very excited to spend a summer in Europe together and make a lot of fun memories. Arrienne is especially excited that she won't have to shave her legs or arm pits for a few months.... At any rate we are excited to do some traveling and eat all of that wonderful German food...did I hear Wienerschnitzel?
Here are some pics of the town we are going to...

A Tribute to the 90's? or 80's?

I was looking at my mom's latest pictures on her camera and happened to see her in a recent picture wearing this lovely red dress. I could not believe my mom had actually decided to wear this dress in public since she wore it when I was a baby, which was 22 years ago! She thought it would be festive for a Christmas concert. We told her that anything with a doyle is definitely out of style and not allowed out of the house! We had a good laugh over it. I told my mom I felt bad that I didn't live at home anymore so that I could tell her when her outfit wasn't so cute. We all had a good laugh over it and decided to dig through her closet to see what other treasures were hiding in there. Then we all dresssed up and had a great time laughing. We also informed her that the Christmas sweaters with bells and embroidery on them were also out of style! haha but just so everyone knows my mom does have a good sense of style and she does have cute clothes. This was just one of those very funny moments when she forgot she shouldn't be wearing clothes she wore in the 80's or 90's!
