Hikes, Hikes, and more Hikes

Sunday, November 8th, 2015 in About Me

This year we went on the most hikes we ever have as a couple and as a family. I REALLY want to be a hiking family. I have been painfully pushing it for years. I am almost…oh so close…to being a hiking family. Reagan is getting better but still holding us back. And I need […]

Summer of Festivals

Sunday, November 8th, 2015 in About Me

How can I get the official job of reviewing festivals all around the country? Garlic ones–Llama ones–Greek food–whatever. Can I get that job? All the festivals in Utah seem to be jam packed into the same month and sometimes the same weekend. I wish I could go to all of them. And I wisht he […]

Amazing Race Girls Camp

Sunday, November 8th, 2015 in About Me

We had the most amazing girls camp this summer. My new leaders along with old leaders created and pulled off such a unique and wonderful girls camp. Really, everyone worked so hard and sacrificed so much to pull this off for our Young Women. I have had some people ask me for the run down […]

Summer of Visitors

Sunday, October 18th, 2015 in About Me

We had quite a few visitors during the summer! Now I’m trying to remember who came out to see us. Aunt Cindy spent some time with us, Tyler’s parents, and my sister & nephews. Tyler’s grandparents also made a stop to see us which we both loved. I wish we lived closer to everyone. My […]

Mama Nessa Summer Camp

Monday, October 5th, 2015 in About Me, Parties

Shae calls me Mama Nessa because I guess she has a few mothers and I am one of them?? Who knows. We had one, just one small & cheap summer vacation planned as a family and it fell through. Tyler had the chance to go to Oman for work and he took it. And I […]

Summer of Go Go Go

Sunday, October 4th, 2015 in About Me, Love of Local in Utah

Summer is full of so many experiences for my girls. Experiences that I care a lot about because they are homeschooled. I have found that at a summer camp the learning on a certain subject is much more intense and detailed than when they would focus on a subject in school. These museums have top […]

Seattle Trip Part 3

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

The rest of our Seattle trip was us walking around to get food. Really, that is the only other thing we did. I had a long list of places I wanted to try and we did it! We also did a lot of wandering around the city, which is just so fun to me. Food […]

Seattle Trip Part 2

Thursday, October 1st, 2015 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

Tyler and I have never done anything like Disneyland or Legoland. My girls love American Girl Dolls, everything about them. Actually in my house if you pick up all the dog’s doodies for a full season (all of Fall, all of Spring, etc) you can pick something out for under $50 in the catalog as […]

Seattle Trip Part 1

Thursday, September 24th, 2015 in About Me, Our Travels Worldwide

I booked our trip to Seattle for a few reasons. I wanted to see my cousin Christopher. I wanted my girls to see a place that was my favorite place to visit growing up. To walk through my grandparent’s house and to visit the places I did on our trips. Seattle is city that jives […]

Dance Stars

Monday, September 21st, 2015 in About Me

It is funny to be writing about the end of the dance year season when we are already into the second week of the new dance year’s season. But lets see what I can remember. This year because of how everyone’s ages landed we attended 3 out of the 4 dance recitals that our studio […]
