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!

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 …
