Now that I 'm back home I can finally CRAFT!

I am so excited to be home and be able to craft any time I want to. I went through craft with drawls while being in Connecticut but now I'm back, let the crafting began! So as some know Bailey has way to many Hair bows and I wanted to make something cute to hang them on. I got this cute idea and took an old pitcher frame painted it the way or color I wanted, found some cute rub-ons to dress it up. I took four ribbons and stapled them in the back of the open part of the frame. I now have a place to keep all of Bailey's hair bows and it was a lot of fun. I feel like I released some much needed craft energy!

A few things along the way....

On are drive home back to Utah we took are time. We stopped at a few cool places. We stopped to get gas in Ohio and saw this cool resturant Named Bostons!
We saw the rock-n-roll hall of fame.
Stopped at the Omaha, Nebraska zoo. It was one of the neatest zoo's I have every been to!!!! I had to many pics of the zoo and so I tried to limit myself.
Bailey as you can see LOVED the zoo!

I am so glad that we had the opportunity to see the Sacred Grove and the Smith Farm. We were also lucky to go at a perfect time, we got to stay a see the Hill Chamorah Pageant. AMAZING!!!

On the road again.....

Big news...
Looks like we will be coming home next week!
I am so excited to be coming home as for Dave I am not so sure his.
I will definitely miss it here, being able to go to the ocean whenever, surrounded by beautiful trees, being able to drive to any east coast state in a matter of a couple of hours, my view from my balcony, Boston being able to play with his friend Carter, my only form of exercise; trekingall three flights of stairs (and I'm not being sarcastic!), the beautiful highways, being so close to Rhode Island, Having wonderful family members out here to make us feel like we are at home, but most of all the friendships that my family has made out here!

I am ready how ever to get back home to feel stable again! Are future plans entail us moving to Logan in the fall so that Dave can go to Utah State, in personal training, sports medicine and try out for the Basketball team! I am so excited for him. I can't wait for our family to finally settle down, for at least a little while any way! Never thought I would live in Logan, it was definitely not on my places lived in my lifetime. I have gotten over having to live there especially if it means having my husband do what he finally loves and is good at! I will be honest in saying I haven't be the most thrilled in supporting my husband in his last little work adventures but I am super excited to support him in going to school. I hope he has gotten the sells man out of him, No offense to any great sells men out there!
I am excited for him to try out for Basketball, it's something he has always wanted to do but has never been confident in. I am glad that he is now ready and excited for all that is coming his way. He knows that it is going to be hard, and he might not make it, but I will be glad to say that one day he will be able to look back and say I am so glad I did, instead of what if...
So Dave could use all the support, thanks to those friends out here in Connecticut who have made him feel good about himself and told him he is just as good as any of the other players! What awesome and life long friends we have made!

As for now we say good by to Connecticut and get back on the road again!

Baileys 1st Birthday!

I can't believe how fast this year has gone! Bailey turned one on the 1st. My little girl has gotten so big! It is so much fun having a girl. She makes life around here so much more bright and full of life. When I was on my way to the doctors to found out what we where having I had already had it in my head that we would be having another boy. But I'm not going to lie, I was so excited to know that we would be having a girl! Don't get me wrong words can not express how much I love Boston, but there is just some thing about having a girl! I look forward to all the girly things we get to do together, make-up, shopping, Boy talk. But for now I love just watching her be a little girl. Her girly laugh, her girly shyness, the way she holds her hand up in the air so girly like. I love this little girl so much and even though people might not think she is mine, I am glad that her and I have that special bond that only mothers and daughters have!

Bailey devours her cake!
