Mother's Day

So this year was my very first Mother's Day! As some may see this holiday lame or pointless, it has always been one of my favorites! I remember when I was younger how all four of us kids would get together and wake up early to make my mamma breakfast in bed! We always had to take it to her on a pretty tray and add some flowers for a nice touch! I remember it like it was yesterday just jumping on her bed to wake her up and wish her a Happy Mother's Day! It always felt so good to make my mom happy. This was my first year being the mom and it was great! I only have one baby and she is just 3 1/2 months old! Tyson was awesome! He made me breakfast and got me a gift certificate for a mani/pedi!!! (my husband is the best) Church was great and all the women received a long stem flower in honor of motherhood. I hope that I will be as great of a mom as mine was and is to this day! I look up to her so much and can't thank her enough for all the hard times I gave her! Couldn't have had a better mother than her! She will always be one of my very best friends!

My amazing mom! ^^^^^^

Sometimes she just doesn't want to do anymore pictures!

Tyson's brother Brandon, Elder Cox, is serving an LDS mission in Vitoria, Brazil. He is currently in Rio and he is doing awesome! This kid is such a stud! I am proud to have him as a brother! Unfortunately, living in Arizona we weren't able to be at the house when he called home to talk to everyone! So we had to imprivize. We did FaceTime with Tyson's sister and then had to talk through the phone to a computer to get to Brandon! Even though we didn't talk a whole lot it was so good to hear how he was doing and see his face! We are excited that Brandon will be coming home in November! The pictures above were the screenshots we attempted to take while talkin'.

You guys... We moved to UTAH!

After much prayer and thinking, we finally decided to start looking into other job opportunities for Tyson. I knew he would be amazing wherever he went and I have always told him I would follow him to the edge of the world, but it was time to be closer to family and closer to each other. We are hoping that this change will only grow our relationships around us and ours most importantly!

It's always bittersweet to move and for change. We miss our Arizonian family very much and can't wait to see them again. We have been blessed with good people and the wonderful church wherever we go and will be forever grateful for that.

Tyson has accepted a new job in Utah working as a Superintendent. He's the and will do such an amazing job! I am so proud of him! He is hard working and it has truly paid off. We are now in the search of our next home while we sell and say goodbye to our Arizona home.

There is no way we would have made it to where we a…


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…
