Easter Sunday of 2016


I love all holidays! The weekend before Easter Tyson had to work. Our community was having a fun spring festival with an easter egg hunt and free lunch. They had face paintings and sidewalk chalk drawing and all kinds of bounce houses and what not! I took Emmy over to the festival Saturday and she loved it! She was scared to death of the Easter Bunny so you won't be seeing a photo with the two of them anytime soon!

Riggins was born Thursday. We just got out of the hospital on Saturday and Sunday was Easter. There was no way I wasn't still going to celebrate and make Easter fun this year for Emmy. After we got her to bed. We hid eggs all over the house and also her basket. (just basically hid it in plain sight haha) We did a jelly bean trail out to the living room and then we hit the sack. When we woke up, Tyson went in and got Emmy and I videoed her coming out! It was the sweetest thing ever. She came out, followed the trail of jelly beans and instead of going straight for her basket she went straight for baby brother! Sweetest thing EVER! We had to basically force her to find her basket and find all her eggs. Once she got started she was in the zone! She found all the eggs we hid and ate the jelly bean trail as she went along. 

 Later that day my Davis family was having their Easter dinner and egg hunt. At first Tyson was just going to take Emmy and I was going to stay home with Riggins since we just got out of the hospital the day before.... but my baby blues were settling in on me and I did not want to miss out on my little girl racing cousins for eggs. I cried and cried going back and forth over if I should go or not and I decided for my own well being that I should probably go. I kept Riggins in his carseat and covered the entire time. We only stayed for a little while though and had such a good time. I am so glad we went because it was much needed for myself and probably for Tyson too. Being cooped up in a hospital when the weather is amazing outside gets rough! This Davis family is the best! We have been so lucky to have them around and have their help. They're amazing! We lucked out big time! Very grateful for them and taking our little family in.

Happy Easter! :)

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…
