Tuesday, April 8th, 2014 in About Me, Beauty in Everyday

Braids. I wish I could do them on myself and for the girls. I can do pigtail braids and that is about it. But they are so perfectly pretty. Shae went to her first real “friend party” and she was so excited. Can you tell in the picture? I bet she was really quiet when […]

Sunday, March 2nd, 2014 in About Me, Beauty in Everyday

I am not in a Things I’ve Loved Lately mood. I’m in an attending Stake Conference with a 2 and 1 yr old was really painful mood. Also something really upset me badly a couple of weeks back. And I am having a difficult time bouncing back. So lets see if I can do this….it’ll […]

I am bumping this up to the top because now you can print out a nice PDF of the story, and it is edited, which is always good. Right under the picture is a hyperlink of the story. Click on that, the PDF will pop up, and print it out! My great grandmother’s name is […]

Things I Loved

I am in the most foul mood ever right this second. So instead of picking up the kitchen like I should, I am going to leave it like a bomb went off. I’ll try to focus on good things, I have a lot of them, what is wrong with me! I am letting things get […]

Friday, July 19th, 2013 in Beauty in Everyday

Summer and I are in a fight right now. I have over-obligated myself in summer fun which is starting not to feel so hot. I want school to start and I want to stay home most days. Get back in the rhythm of waking up early, getting things done, resting, reading, playing, cooking, cleaning. One […]

Things I Loved This Month

Monday, February 18th, 2013 in Beauty in Everyday

Little houses nestled deep into the jungle. One time Tyler asked a family if it was hard living so far from the main road. They looked at him oddly and said of course not. It probably was like people asking us if it was hard to live in Herriman instead of Salt Lake. The beautiful […]

Sweet Angie

Sunday, February 10th, 2013 in Beauty in Everyday

There is this one girl from church that will come spend the weekends with us about every three weeks or so. She is ten and I don’t ever want to leave her. I want her to live with us forever and ever. But I bet her sweet grandmother wouldn’t love that. Angie has a story, […]

Baby mine, don’t you cry. Baby mine, dry your eyes. Rest your head close to my heart, never to part, baby of mine. Little one when you play, don’t you mind what they say. Let those eyes sparkle and shine, never a tear, baby of mine. If they knew sweet little you they’d end up […]

You know the feeling when you are just bursting with joy that you can’t contain it? That you are grinning from ear to ear all on your own. No one is telling you a joke or looking your way but you just are smiling as big as your face will allow. Man it felt good. […]

Things I Loved During Our 1st Costa Rican Christmas Season

Sunday, December 30th, 2012 in Beauty in Everyday

Our first Costa Rican was laid back, hot, meaningful, full of happy tears, some sad tears, silly worries, fun, new friends, lots of skype sessions, yummy food, special moments, and moments of CHILDREN YOU ARE ALL DRIVING ME CRAZY—all rolled into one. Actually the kids were really good. I just have noticed every Christmas Eve […]
