I am.....

I am weird because...

I hate the snow.
I can eat mustard with a spoon
and salsa...just give me a spoon.
I love brushing my teeth.
I am one of the 2% of the people in the
world who doesn't mind sleeping with socks on.

I am a bad friend because...

I always forget to call people back.
I look at a text and think O I will 
text them back in a few minutes, then a week later ill be
going through my phone realize I never did and feel 
to dumb to finally respond.
I am a good friend because...

My heart is huge
I have enough room in there for everyone.
I always look for the good in others.
I truly want to make others happy
and care for their well-being
I am sad because...

Summer days spent outside with my little Ty 
will have to wait tell next year 

I am happy because...

Next year they will be with 
Ember as well 

I am excited for...

Hot Chocolate
Extra snuggles
Warm kisses

2 Months little girl

12lbs 2oz
 All night
 Usually 3 hrs at a time
 Nope not yet
 Smiling lots, kicking feet, staring, recognizing mommy and daddy's voice

Ember is such a joy.
 She truly is our sunshine. 

Her sweet smile on that chubby cheek face melts our heart.
 I catch myself staring at her while she sleeps and marvel over the precious way her lips curl. 
I listen to the sweet sound of her catching her breath. 

While she is awake I giggle at her funny noises
and the look she gets right before her
brother comes to hug her.
It's like she is so excited but nervous he 
may squash her.

 I love the way she follows us with her eyes.
The way she likes to be wrapped up tight. 

I love the way she calms to the touch of my skin
or the sound of my voice.

Baby girl
you are loved

MMM, link up and a WINNER

“That which we persist in doing becomes easier for us to do; not that the nature of the thing itself is changed, but that our power to do is increased”

 Ralph Waldo Emerson


Jayson gave me this quote to use today. As soon as he said it I knew I had to share it. Its perfect for how I have been feeling lately. 


I'm finally getting back into my grove. Exercising is becoming a priority again. Everything from getting up early to pushing myself harder is finally coming together. It hasn't changed, I have. My power has increased.


I love this chick. Seriously doesn't she look like she means business

I repeated the quote because I want it to stick in your brain. 

If you want something to be easy you have to work for it. 

work for what you want.

no excuses.

This week I have been praying so much in thanks.

We were excepted into the University of Colorado for graduate school.
 This is such a blessing to our family.
Jayson and I decided to take a risk and only apply to one school.
We saved an insane amount of money and time. 

We knew it was a risk.

 after heavy fasting and praying we knew 
this was the right choice.

We knew it is where Heavenly Father wants us to take our family.
We knew if we did everything in our power to make it happen
if we stayed true and faithful 
he would provide the way.

 I am so thankful for the opportunity we have for Jayson
to continue his education.
For the means that make it possible.
For the help he receives to  be able to balance school and work and family
and still manage amazing grades and is able to spend so much time with us.

I'm thankful for Jayson and his willingness to take care of us.
For not only doing it, but wanting to.

I'm grateful for him working while going to school
so I can stay home and raise our babies. 

I am grateful for my life.

DIY Baby Leg Warmers

These are just the sweetest! 

I love baby leg warmers. Winter is coming up and I wanted some other options for Ember rather than just pants and tights. 

To buy them at the store they are a pretty penny to say the least. But if you have some old knee highs laying around then they are FREE!!

After I made one....well you can see I had to make more. 
I used almost all my knee highs. 
But she looks so cute in them it was worth it!

Lay out your sock.
Cut off the heal and the toe (throw them away)
Turn the cuff and the sock inside out. 
Fold the cuff so right sides are now facing out.
Sew the cuffs raw edges with a zig-zag stitch.
Put the cuff into the sock.
(remember the sock should be inside out)
Sew together with a zig-zag stitch.
(While sewing stretch the cuff to the sock-dont pull sock)
Turn right side out and 
cute little baby leg warmers

I saw this tutorial first from Heather at decorganize crafts.
She pretty much rocks.
Go check her blog out!!

Put them under a dress or wear with a onesie.
Either way they are DARLING for 
your little one.
