Christmas Pictures

For our christmas pictures we wanted lots of snow, so we drove up to snowbird with my sister and brother in law Val and Ryan for a fun little photo shoot. We love the pictures!! Thanks Val.
It was freezing, but it was well worth the pictures.

A Little Behind

As you all know life is crazy and as a result I have gotten way behind on updating my photography blog. So instead of posting them all at once I am going to be posting them randomly this week and next week so keep your eyes peeled. There are lots of fun pictures to come.

DIY Tree Ornament

I saw this cute yarn ornament at Joann's and thought it would go perfectly with our Christmas decor, so me trying to save money and be crafty :) I decided to make four for the same price instead of buying one. It was super easy. Here are the supplies...
I glued the first part of the string to the styrofoam ball and just wrapped it around randomly and glued the end piece on the top.  If you slightly loosen one of the pieces of string on the top that becomes your way to hang it on the tree.
Yay for Christmas!! So you are probably thinking it is not even Thanksgiving yet why have we already put our tree up :). Well I just couldn't wait any longer. Not only did we not decorate last year and so we need to make up for it :) , but I'm just ready for it all.... the christmas music, presents, stockings, lights, wreaths, ribbon, wrapping paper, christmas cards, snow.... doesn't it just make you giddy thinking of it all?
While we were decorating we had lots of fun pulling out all our old ornaments.  My sister, Lauren gave this one to me last year and I had forgotten about it...its my favorite. On the wings it says best sister :) miss that girl.

Bountiful Baskets

A few people in our ward purchase bountiful baskets every Saturday and so when we heard how much everyone else loved them we decided to sign up and we are in love. It is so fun. If you aren't in Utah I'm almost positive they sell them in other states so you should check it out.You get different types of local fruits and vegetables every time and it is such a great deal.
There are some things we have never even seen before, like these....Fuyus
We had to google what they were and how to eat them. We just ate them like apples but you can also cook them. They were yummy,  similar to an apple. I'm so excited to search for new recipes and try new things I have never tried before. I hope it helps us eat healthier!!

On The Search For Fabric

I finished the table!! I was originally going to sand the chairs and table but it makes me nervous I'm going to ruin something and have to redo it so for now they are staying how they are. I'm just looking for different fabric for the chairs and my year long project will finally be done :) yay

Creating a Plan

I love brick walls... I think this room is gorgeous and I'm making plans to make our bedroom have a brick wall. I think it is possible. :)
What do you think? Do you think it would look bad, weird?

P.S Thanks for all the advice on the yellow skirts I'm looking out for some cute shirts/ cardigans.
