Our trip to meeting baby Karter!

Hey y'all!
So the start of our trip did not go as planned... Our flight was delayed unfortunately. We waited an extra 1.5 hours for our flight to finally leave from Mesa, AZ. This gave me some mad anxiety... I am not a frequent flyer and planes just make me nervous. Luckily on the flight I was able to sit next to two other LDS women! They were so nice and right away they asked if I was LDS! I said yes and they said there was an ora about me and they could tell. (BEST COMPLIMENT)!! We had good conversation and laughs during the flight! It was a bumpy flight and as great as they were, I was just ready to be done with it! We flew into Ogden, UT where my sis-in-law picked Emmy and I up! (Sorry you had to wait so long Lotto). We got into Logan, UT and grabbed some late night dinner (I was starving!!) then we went straight over to my sisters house! ......................

......... How absolutely precious is this little man?! I miss the newborn baby stage where it is constant cuddles! He is such a snoozer too... I was so bummed that I wasn't able to be at the hospital when my sister had him but I finally got to see and hold him only a week later and he was (is) PERFECT! Good job Shawnee and Kyle :)

We got to see all of my family and it was so fun to hang out with all my siblings at the same time for once! It has been so long where we were all together! My brother and sisters are my best friends and I lobe them so much! Emmy is definitely loved by them all too! Thanks to my family for taking us in and letting us come and steal some snuggles from little Karter!

 I love my big brother! He took Emmy and put her down for a nap and put himself down too!

Emmy loving on Clayton's dog, Jeter and then Uncle Kyle, (my brother-in-law) enjoyed scaring Emmy with a balloon!

 My little sister is awesome! She took on both babies every chance she had! Love her so much!


Isn't he just the cutest?! ^^^ Love my nephew to pieces!
 Well it was my little sisters birthday on the 10th so we went down to Layton, UT to dinner at Red Lobster and to the mall to shop a bit! There was this cute little tree house and I just couldn't resist, I had to take some pictures of Emmy standing in it! Gma-H didn't dare let her stand alone. Her balance isn't quite there yet!

  Saying our goodbyes to grandma (my momma) and mandee! ^^^
Then back to Logan we go!
 They held hands and Emmy was such a good cousin to try and hold Karter! 
Love these two!

 On our last day visiting we went and walked around the fair and had some fun!

 We said our goodbyes and then headed back to Ogden to catch our flight back home to Tyson! We had so much fun and can't wait to see Karter again soon!


  1. Thanks April! When's your little one due?! I cannot wait for you to experience motherhood! I seriously love it! Can't think of anything better! You'll do amazing!

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…
