Step Right up to the Big Top

Wow what a party for a sweet little girl turning 2! Emmy's party was a circus theme. Idea from Karas party ideas Invitation done by Jamie Carter.
We had a food table with nachos, hot dogs, and chili. We also had a treat table with suckers, cupcakes, cotton candy, and many other yummy things!
The party favors were boxes of animal crackers. Cute tags again by Jamie.
What an awesome balloon arch! Thanks to Arlene and Daisy!
Jen Stewart did the popcorn machine and it was a hit! Whats better than buttered popcorn??
Thanks to everyone who helped us! I think all the kids had so much fun and I know Emmy will remember this forever!! Happy Birthday my little Emster! Aunt Jenny loves you!

lots of snow for lots of fun

Last weekend I was invited to spend a few days with my friend Jen and her family in Utah. They have a cabin in Brianhead and were so sweet to include me with their family! However, things were not that easy getting there! There was so much snow, that the people who were already there were snowed in, and those of us who weren't there yet....couldn't get in! It was kind of comical. But, after being snowmobiled in about a 25 min ride....we were there! But, then came the snowmobile mechanical problems. Spark plugs, brakes, gas....we needed it all! They were stuck miles away from the cabin. But about 4 hours later, with a bunch of exhausted peeps, we all we there! And, it was a total blast! We had great food, alot of laughs, games, snowmobiling, tubing, some skiied, some snowboarded, and relaxation too! It was a much needed trip!
Would you look at the size of this Stop sign? Is that the cutest thing ever?? It's so mini!

Amber's birthday!

March 6th was Amber's birthday! We have such close birthdays so we always celebrate for a month straight. :) Or at least we try to. I love that when we think of things we want, even 6 months after the fact, we say....Happy Birthday! Ten things I love about Amber
  • She is the best mom.
  • No matter how much she has going on {4 kids, church calling, work, husband} she always has time for me.
  • I never have to ask Amber for help. She just knows when I need it.
  • Her skin. It's just not fair to be that beautiful.
  • She's spontaneous. Always up for fun!
  • She's the most loyal person.
  • Her creativity.
  • Her heart. She loves so much.
  • She is so motivating. On everything. She is wonder woman.
  • I love her jewelry company. It's just the cutest stuff. :)

Happy Birthday Amber! I love you!

Prayers for Dave

My brother Dave has been in the hospital with a rare form of phemonia. Everyday is a struggle. I am starting to think he's just trying to get out of ziplining with me next week. :)
We would appreciate all the prayers for his quick recovery!

Why I'm smiling

  • My taxes are DONE! Well, ready for the accountant. Whew!
  • Booked ziplining in Puerta Vallarta. Cannot even tell you the excitement I have. I have always wanted to go! And, I get to go with my brother Dave! 24 more days.

  • Am totally addicted to reading this to-do-list book. It's kind of voyeuristic. Why would I want to read other people's lists? I don't know....but you can find out too.

  • Got new coyboy boots and I seriously love. In total honor of my dad. He taught me to love cowboy boots....and to know a "good" pair of cowboy boots. I hope you're proud dad. A know they are a little more "fashionista" than you're good ol Justins....but I'm happy!

  • Started a new book called Little Bee. The back cover has me entrigued. So, I will check back in and give details. Sounds interesting!

  • I am apart of a new book club! So start swapping!
  • I get to celebrate 9 birthdays in March. And, because I love to shop.....this has been a blast!
  • My guitar class has been going so well. This week I can play Love me Tender. I'm hoping Taylor Swift won't be too far away. ha!
  • Purged part of my closet. Got rid of 28 purses. That left me with about 22. And I feel free!
  • We sold our very first lego pendant on Just Be.

now that's why I'm smiling.......
