New House

Hi All, It's been to long I was inspired as well by Jennie A. after looking at her cute blog to do a little updating!

So a ton has happened since I last posted but the biggest change is that we sold our New beautiful house and move into and 1969 rambler in Bountiful.

There were many reasons for the move a few being getting closer to the Mountains where we spend a lot of time, getting out from under our parents wings and growing more as a family, and we felt really good about the schools up here ranked some of the best in the state.

We are sad to leave our wonderful parents who dearly love the girls, and sad also to leave all of the great friends we have out there. It's also going to be tough on my hair business hopefully it all works out. We feel really good that this is were we are supposed to be, after all we are only about 20 minutes away.

So we bought our house about a month ago and have been working on it every night and weekend, we finally are moving in this weekend even though it's still a work in progress, here are a few pictures!

I want to thank all our family and friends for all there help we couldn't do it without them!

I will post more later that's all I had since my battery on my camera is dead, and I can't find the charger until I unpack!

Shoes, Shoes, Shose Part 2

For all of you who came to my first shoe party, you will probably remember how much fun it was:). For the rest who couldn't make it here's your second shot. I promise too all of you loyal supporters this is it(for the year). I promise I won't bug you any more. My cousin called me up and gave me an offer I couldn't resist, and neither should you. Her holiday special is: for every $25 you spend you get $15 of the purchase of a purse, you can't beat that! Their purses and shoe's are so cute and are at a very reasonable price, starting around $20. They also make great Christmas gifts. If you want to see for yourself check it out at or you can call me if you have any ?'s. I hope everyone can make it even if you don't buy anything it's just fun to get together. Thanks for all your support.

Oh and I guess a date would be helpful, Tuesday, November 11th from 6:30 to 8:30. At my house!
