My mom is the best. She is such a calm person and is always thinking of others. She has always been a great listener when I need someone to talk you and gives me the advice I need to hear. She is a great example to me and I'm so lucky to have her in my life! I LOVE her so much and I wish her the best Mother's Day!

My new mom ( mother-in-law), Julie, is AWESOME! She has been there for me ever since I started dating Chad in high school. We have had so great conversations throughout the years and I wouldn't take those moments back for the world. She is so fun to be around and love that! I feel so lucky to have such great in-laws .... so Happy Mother's Day!

Day 30

Today I am headed down to Utah to catch my flight to go home to Colorado tomorrow! Before I leave I get to spend some time with my best friends in Provo! YAY! Here is a picture of my parents lovely home. I'm so excited to get away for a little while, but at the same time I will miss Chad (I wish he could come with me!). P.S. I checked the weather and it's suppose to be 70 degrees! WAHOO!

Day 29

Going to the zoo is always so fun! It takes me back to my elementary days when we took field trips :) It seems like every time I go I see something or learn something new! These pictures were taken at the Dallas World Aquarium a few summers ago when I went to visit Chad and his family.


Look at the detail on this thing! Amazing!

Day 28

I'm so thankful for church music, especially on Pandora Radio! This type of music helps me feel calm and remember what matters most in life. When I have a tough day I know I can turn on some church tunes and feel SO much better. There is something about music that instantly soothes bad feelings. I love this quote.

"Music speaks what cannot be expressed, soothes the mind and gives it rest, heals the heart and makes it whole, flows from heaven to the soul"

Day 27

I am so grateful for my wonderful husband Chad. He is the most selfless person I know and I always feel so safe when I'm with him. He has such a strong testimony of this Gospel and is a great example of faith. He can always make me laugh no matter what mood I'm in. He is always there to talk to and somehow he always knows the right things to say. I love him. I love the way he makes me feel and his genuine personality. It is hard to believe that Chad and I have known each other since our Junior year of high school! So here is a look back in the old days...

My Uncle Dave is the most talented artist I know! Dave has worked on many Disney films including Alladin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, 101 Dalmations, and more. Here are just a few of the many caricatures he has done.

Isn't he great?!?

Day 24

Yesterday I had the chance to attend the Standard Plumbing Annual Product show at our headquarters in Sandy, Utah. It was a long day, but I was able to meet a lot of vendors I have talked to on the phone and see a lot of new products. It reminded me a lot of when I went to KBIS in Atlanta. Good memories!

Sandy Showroom display

This is a product I came across in the Sandy Showroom. This shower head is by a company called Sonoma Forge with a mixed style of industrial chic and rustic country elegance. I have never seen anything like it! I can totally see this style in a high rise New York apartment, very cool! Check out their website at

Sorry this is late...I totally spaced it last night. Oatmeal makes me happy, especially with some cinnamon and raisins :) I love oatmeal in the morning because its healthy, fills me up, and gives me energy! mmmm

"I'm singing in the rain, just singing in the rain; what a wonderful feeling, I'm happy again."

Today was a rainy day and I love it because that means Spring is that much closer!

Aren't these pictures adorable!

Day 14

Today is 3/14, not only is it my only brother's birthday (happy birthday Tyler!), but it is also Pi day! So in celebration of Pi day, here is an awesome video titled, "What Pi sounds like." It is actually really cool!

Doesn't this pie look delicious! I love pie because there are so many different kinds, too many to even choose. My all time favorite pie has always been pumpkin pie, especially with a dollop of homemade whipped cream.

Don't you just want to take a bite?? Pumpkin pie is definitely my weakness. Forget about candy or cake, pumpkin pie wins hands down.
