Winter is almost over here in Utah. We have moments of spring weather that come and go. It is very refreshing. The last 3 months have been difficult. I was very sick with this pregnancy, and while my natural remedies for morning sickness helped occasionally…. time just needed to pass. For me it felt like an eternity! But by 18 weeks I was feeling […]
Now that I am 10 weeks pregnant with #3 the morning sickness is in full force. I remember having nausea with the boys pregnancies, but it never really seemed too bad. It seems like my nausea was more at night than the morning. With this pregnancy I have been nauseous pretty much sick week 7 and the nausea lasts from about 7 am until […]
This afternoon my 4 year old told me that he needed to go #2. He runs over to the potty and starts the process. A few minutes later he comes out of the bathroom upset and says “My booty isn’t working!”. I tried not to laugh of course. Classic mommy moment. I responded with love and compassion, “you can’t go #2?” and he says….NO. […]
December is always a really busy time for my family. My husband’s birthday is December 3rd, then my oldest son’s birthday is December 16th and my little baby Garrett’s birthday is December 25th!! Yes Christmas morning he was born. I went into labor at 11 pm Christmas Eve and he was born at 2:00 am Christmas morning! Not the plan for my ideal Christmas, […]

I have friends and family that suffer from migraines, but headaches are not typical for me–maybe the occasional hormonal headache or headaches from spending hours on a computer at work—but nothing too severe. I started December 11th like any other day with the rush of getting 3 kids to school with home packed lunches and school papers everywhere! I […]
My family went home to Lakeside Ranch for the week of Thanksgiving. My parents ranch is located in Inverness, Fl on 800 acres. It was nice to escape the Utah chilly weather and spend our time outdoors in sunny Florida. My favorite thing about Lakeside Ranch is that my boys wake up at 7 am, put on their boots, and then head out the […]

Santa has come a little early this year! I attended the Weston A. Price Conference in Atlanta a few weeks ago and I decided to take the plunge and buy the Vitamix. A Vitamix dealer was offering a great discount and I couldn’t resist. I have been using my Blendtec for the last 8 years and absolutely love it! I am looking forward to using […]
Stress + work + kids + holidays = headache (for me). I have been under more stress lately. I have been helping one of my brothers do a startup which requires about 3-5 hours of my time a day. These hours are “donated” time. This will continue on for the next few weeks all the way through Christmas. With blogging, the boys, school, cooking, […]
