First family camp outing

Okay, so this camp was absolutely awesome! We camped at Camp Zion that is on Mt. Lemon in Tucson Arizona. It was over 9,000 ft in the air! This camp is church owned and absolutely amazing! We stayed over Friday night and had a wonderful devotional that night on Priesthood. Bishop did such a great job and I felt the spirit so strongly. Saturday morning we went on a basic mile hike! We had no idea that we were doing a hike so we didn't bring Emmy's Ergo baby carrier with us. So Tyson and I each took a shift of holding her throughout the hike!! She did awesome and slept through at least half the hike. This was out first camping trip of the year and Emmy's first EVER!! She is such a good little baby! She slept normal as she does at home. We did decide that she might have allergies because she was sneezing up a storm! (She gets the allergies from her dad). Hopefully we can get her tested for them and find out soon! Other than that she was awesome and everyone in our ward just loved her to pieces!

This was our huge tent that our ward clerk let us borrow!
It was too big to fit on the platform we chose. Later we saw that there were bigger ones we could have set up on! The platforms were great! Your tent didn't get dirty and less crawly creatures could get us!

Okay so the camp had a  basketball court, sand volleyball, kickball and tetherball!!
 This is one of the extra buildings with bathrooms and covered sitting area.^^
 ^^This was the main building where people would sleep inside if they wanted. This is also where we did devotional and they have food serving room inside.
 Sand volleyball!! ^^
This is the amphitheater!

Now onto the hiking pictures!

 Our bishop is awesome! He went up this crazy huge tree while wearing his sweet Ray-bans!
Someone woke up during the hike a little upset ^^
 We loved Camp Zion! Now if only I could go with the girls camp again in a few months! ;)

I love a good hack. I mean, who doesn't? Whether it be for laundry, cooking, school, websites, you name it, I am all for it!

I am going to give you a run down of my top favorite hacks that I have used and found to be legit and actually work. In no certain order and the most random compilation you will find. They are just my favorites that I've found.

So here are my TOP 10 favorite hacks:

1. Trouble Falling Asleep? Try the 4-7-8 technique. 4 second in-hale, 7 second hold, 8 second exhale, and REPEAT.

You guys!!! This seriously works for me. When all else has failed, like my usual herbal tea and Magnesium supplement, I will do this and it WORKS!

2. Tuesday's at 3PM, 6 weeks prior to your flight is when plane tickets are cheapest.

Now I can say that this one is USUALLY the case. It has worked 95% of the time for me.

3. You can add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup oil to any cake mix to make it into cookie dough!

LOVE LOVE THIS ONE. Especially with Funfetti Cake mix. YUM!

4. Peroxide will…

New Year, New Goals

Hey everyone!

I am doing this post majorly for my personal accountability! but.... I would love to be inspired and hear from you all on what goals you have set for this new year.

So, one of my favorite things is that my new year starts and my new age! I was born on January 6th so when I start a new year I am also starting my new year of age too! I feel so blessed at the beginning of the year and felt super motivated to start my new year off right with some meaningful goals.

For my 2018 year... and my 25th year of life, I want to grow more. I want to get out of my comfortable little bubble and make myself UNCOMFORTABLE.

Whatttt???? Why on earth would I do this to myself? I know, it's crazy. The quote that I am trying to live by is this, "GET COMFORTABLE BEING UNCOMFORTABLE!" I truly believe this is the only way that I can grow into the woman I am meant to be. As hard as this is going to be for me, I am going to do it. I'm going to try really hard and become more than …
