What I Like Wednesday - Girls Night Out!

Well, technically this time it's gonna be girls afternoon out, but you get the idea! We're heading out today to see this...
Can't wait! It's always a fun time when we get to go out with the girls. We're hitting the 1:30 show. We always try to plan so that we can have popcorn at the movie, and still do a full meal at our fav mexican restaurant afterwards!

The last one we went to was this...
it was alright...I haven't watched it since and I probably wouldn't have liked it if it didn't have Channing Tatum in it. ;)

One of the best we've seen for girls night out was this...

LOVED it! So hilarious. But then again, I ♥ Ryan Reynolds.

Another couple of fun girls night outs we've done is...

I'm not a huge fan of her music, but her show was actually really good. Plus, again, good food and good company didn't hurt!

We also saw this a couple years ago...
It was pretty good as far as concerts go (I'm not a huge fan of them) but I had a horrible headache and felt like I might vomit/die the whole time! I wanted to kill every person in there who screamed for "One more song!" lol. But again, the company was worth it!

What are some fun girls night outs you've had?

L Photography!

This week's giveaway comes to us from Lynette at

I was THRILLED when Lynette contacted me about doing a giveaway! We grew up together and I was so excited when she started up her business. She does an amazing job! She did our family pictures this past fall and I loved them! Here is Lynette to tell you a little more about herself...

Hi! My name is Lynette {obviously!}, the one behind the lens. I am a stay at home mom of three insanely cute little boys who keep me b.u.s.y.--but that's how I like it. Photography has been a passion of mine for the last year or two. I know it sounds cliche' but I am one of those moms who got a nice camera just to take nicer pictures of my kids and then fell in love with all the possiblities and endless creative opportunities that it gave me. My favorite is photoging families {especially with little kids}. I love to try and capture the chemistry in each different family. This has been such a fun journey that still has a long road ahead. Can't wait to spend some time with the winner :)

She does an amazing job with everything from children (newborns too!)....

to couples...

to families...

And everything in between! She's done some great maternity sessions you can see here and here.

Lynette has been so generous to offer a choice of a free mini session with Lynette or a $20 print credit to the winner of this giveaway!

If you choose the mini session (valued at $50) you will receive...

30 minute session with Lynette at the location of your choice
10 high resolution images to print at location of your choice

She does travel to the Salt Lake City area a couple of times a year and would be willing to work your mini session in then as well. If you are farther away, you might want to opt for the $20 print credit, or you can always gift the session to someone you know that is in her area.

*The winner may also choose to use the mini session credit as an upgrade to a full session.

If you choose the $20 print credit you will receive...

$20 print credit to print any image of your choice, whether it's one Lynette has taken or one that you've taken yourself.

What I Like Wednesdays - Toy Story!

So, for Father's Day yesterday, we took a family outing to see this...

We are major Toy Story lovers at this house. Tyson and Ryan developed a love for Buzz and Woody at a very young age. We had several talking Woodys, Buzz Lightyears, Bullseyes, etc at our house. They had to each have one, and we would have to write their name on the bottom of the boot, just like Andy had his...

so there was no way to blame if one was lost, you always knew which one it was! In fact, Ryan found one at Grandma's house a few months ago and after some fresh batteries, he works like a champ. For the record, it has Tyson's name on the boot. ;)

We had Woody "costumes" that Tyson insisted on wearing even in 100 + degree weather...

Buzz and "Slinky" halloween costumes...(Slink was actually just a cute little puppy costume from Old Navy, but they thought it was perfect!)

Tyson even sported a Buzz and Woody shirt on his first day of preschool!


And the real test, even now, after all these years, they were still super excited to see their old pal Woody when we were at California Adventure this past spring!

Needless to say, we all loved it! There is a part in the movie where Andy's mom is thinking back to when he was little and would play with all the toys. It kinda made me at bit misty eyed, me of all people!
The kids for sure grow up way too fast.

Have you seen it? I'm still debating between which is my favorite, 2 or 3...
So, what did you think? Discuss!

Ends Saturday night.

The Vintage Pearl

This weeks giveaway comes to us from Erin over at

I can't say how much I love her stuff! I was so thrilled when Erin offered to sponsor a giveaway! Here she is to tell you a little more about herself and her business...
I started stamping about 3 years ago on my kitchen counter. It was a much needed creative outlet that I could do from home while raising our 4 kids. I opened up a small shop on Etsy, and blogged. It was all just for fun. Surprisingly, the business really began to grow about a year ago and we were able to launch our own website, which was very exciting! I love creating and designing new pieces. I look for inspiration in everyday life. It’s very rewarding to make a piece of jewelry other moms will cherish!

As I was trying to put this post together, picking out my favorites was soooooo hard! Way too hard to narrow it down to just a few. But I do love this one! It would make a great gift...hint...hint...

She has so many different things to choose from!

Seriously, I'll take one of each!

Love this one too! I'm pretty sure I need one of these as well!

Love these leather cuffs for the guys too!

Erin has generously offered a $50 gift certificate to the winner of this giveaway!

Entering to win is simple!
Just head on over to The Vintage Pearl and pick out a favorite! Leave a comment telling me what item you can't live without!

What I Like Wednesday - SYTYCD!

So, if you are a fan of this show, you probably know what those letters stand for, if not, you need to find out! I can't express how much I love love love So You Think You Can Dance! It's such a great show! I'm always trying to encourage (alright, maybe I try to force ;) people to become fans! I really do love it that much! I did recently convert my SIL Tonia and so now I have someone that is willing to text back and forth with me about it! I mean, I know several other people that watch it, but she's always willing to discuss favorites, etc.
 Lauren is my fav this year! I might even dare say she is my favorite girl to ever be on there and I've loved alot of the girls! She's got an adorable personality and she's such an amazing dancer! Not to mention that body, are you kidding me!? I had to text Tonia about it right away! Once Jeremy got home, I had to make him check it out too! Yes, I'm one of those weirdos that instead of getting jealous if my hubby looks at a girl with a hot bod, I'm the one pointing her out to him! :)
Here's the video of her Vegas audition. I especially love this video because I also have a soft spot in my heart for Tyce Diorio. Does he not have the cutest facial expressions!?
Is she not amazing!?
My favorite guy of the season is Jose. He reminds me alot of Legacy, who I also loved. I can see him going a long way in this competition!
I also love that the past few seasons they have had Travis Wall back to choreograph! I loved him on his season and he's always been one of my favorite guys to ever be on this show! How can you not like him? He's so flippin cute! The routines he choreographs are always a hit with me! Here are a couple of my favorites from Travis' season!
I loved this final solo from him, might have a little to do with the fact that I love Something Corporate too.
So, do you love this show as much as I do? Discuss! Who do you love!?
P.S. I also have a moderate to extra large crush on Lil C. He's just so darn cute!

P.P.S After rereading this post, it's pretty apparent I have crushes on pretty much everyone on here!

Comfie Country Crafts!

This week's giveaway comes to us from Angela (Seems weird calling her that, since I've always just called her Ang, but for the sake of being professional, we'll stick with Angela...; ) over at...

I've known Angela since she moved here in middle school. A few years later, I fell in love with her older brother and the rest is history! She's been crafting ever since I've known her. Seems like there isn't really any craft she doesn't know how to do. She's had a craft blog for awhile now and is always posting her cute projects.

She recently made a super cute watermelon dress for my cute niece Kaia for her upcoming 2nd birthday! Her birthday is watermelon themed so of course the guest of honor needed a fabulous coordinating dress for the big day. The only way this could be cuter is if it was a picture of sweet Kaia wearing it! 

She also made these adorable crochet cupcakes for my other niece Jaylee's cupcake themed 1st birthday party! So adorable.

She recently opened up an etsy store and has some cute things available! She makes these cute little Crayon Cozy's. Wish I would have had one when my boys were little, would have come in quite handy. I'm pretty sure I took their crayons to church in a little tupperware container! 


She also makes these fabulous puff quilts!

I've been lucky enough to receive one for each of my boys when they were born! I'm pretty sure the one she made for my oldest son Tyson is the first puff quilt she ever made! I love them and have them both stored away for safekeeping!

She has a lot of other cute items in her shop ranging from little girls' aprons to pendants to embellished notebooks! Also, remember those cute cupcakes I mentioned earlier? They work great as a pincushion and she has them available for sale in her shop as well!    

Now, onto the details of the giveaway! Angela has generously offered a $20 credit towards anything in her etsy shop to the winner of this giveaway!

Entering to win is simple!

Visit Angela's etsy shop and let me know what your favorite item is!

Scentsy Winner! has chosen a winner for the Scentsy Giveaway!

I was almost tempted to pick again because I didn't want it to look as if I was being unfair. You see, last week, my SIL Leslie won the giveaway and now this week chose Tonia, who is also my SIL . I was seriously tempted to just let her know what had happened and buy her a little scentsy prize myself, then use to choose another number, but I didn't feel that would be right. I wanted to keep it completely random and where Tonia's entry was valid, I did not have a legitimate reason to draw again.  So, congrats to Tonia!

Thanks to all who entered and be sure to stay tuned tomorrow for a great giveaway

Fun New Finds Friday - My 30 Day Strike!

So, we all know the fabulous Becca over at


right?! If for some strange reason you don't know her, head to her blog now! She is so cute and hilariously real in the way she blogs, and the sad part is, she's even cuter in real life!

She recently started a new blog that I wanted to bring attention to.

She started this journey to better herself. I give her so much credit for being brave enough to do it, I know I couldn't! Here is the innagural post to explain a little more what it's about! What I think is most amazing is that at the end of the month, instead of just being proud of the money she's saved or how she's changed or bettered herself, she's going to be donating to charity! Awesome. So head on over there and give her some support, or even join in if you're up for it!

What I Like Wednesday - I Am Momma...

So, I'm sure by now you've all see this fabulous blog!

 She's always making the cutest things!

This was the first real post that I remember really grabbing me...Who doesn't want the look of designer jeans on the cheap! I know I do!

I love anything paisley so this project was for sure a winner in my eyes!

When my boys were younger, I struggled so much with finding stuff that I felt was "cool" enough for them to wear! She has TONS of ideas for some awesome things you can make your boys!

So, if for some reason you have not checked out her blog yet, do it now! You will not be disappointed!

Love scentsy! I don't know anyone who doesn't.

We love the products as do many of our good friends. Well, finally we decided to become consultants ourselves and join the team. We look forward to building our own team and joining with you all to make Scentsy even more successful than it is now.

I just had to add that picture of them, aren't they so cute!?

Love this warmer!

I especially love their room sprays, I'm planning to get a 6 pack of them! I love the Grape Granita and can't wait to try the Cherry Limeade!

These new Campus Collection warmers are good too! Great way to show your team spirit!

They also have these new DIY Themes you can get. They are basically a plain warmer that you can decorate yourself with rub ons! I love this theme pack, the one with the pink bow is too cute!

Fun New Finds Friday - Whippycake!

About a year ago or so I somehow found this great blog.

At the time I was amazed by her fabulous creations, she has so many adorable things listed in her
etsy shop, you can find all the info here on her site. 

I just recently found her featured on ucreate and saw that she has hair tutorials! There are so many different ones to choose from! It's almost making me wish that my hair was a little shorter so I could easily pull some of these off! This one is my absolute favorite one she has on there, so cute!

Hoo are you Tuesday?

Time for this week's 'Hoo are you' questions! Go here to check out all the details and be sure to play along, it's fun to get to know everyone better!

1. Do you have any siblings?
Yes, I have 3 sisters. Sam is 35 and the oldest, I'm 30 and I have younger sisters that are twins, Jess and Jamie that are about to turn 25.

2. Do you have any children?
Two boys! Tyson is 11 and Ryan is 9.

3. Are you a morning or night person?
I usually like to say middle afternoon person, but if I had to pick, I'd probably say morning. I usually have an easier time waking up early than I do staying up late. I get really mean when I'm too tired.

4.Are you organized or spontaneous?
I'd say organized. I get a little freaked out when there isn't a "plan".

5. What is your typical 4th of July like? Laid back at home? Community celebrations? etc...?
We live in a small community that we both grew up in, so we do stuff all day at the park. We go to the parade first thing, then to the booths. This year I got roped into doing the little kids races, so once that's over I'll head to the gym to play in a volleyball tournament. Jeremy will sometimes do the 3 point contest and then we usually rest at home for a bit. Sometimes we eat dinner at my mom's house, sometimes at the park, just depends. Then Jeremy will go do the home run contest. Just about the time that ends, we head to the park to visit with friends and wait for the fireworks!

What I Like Wednesday - Photography!

Now, I do have to preface this by saying I personally, know nothing about photography! I hardly take any pictures (I'm trying to become better about that) but I do love to browse photography blogs.
I wanted to post a few of my favorites for you to check out. 

I first met Jen on a message board (I know, I seem to put that in every post!) a few years ago. I watched her start up this photography business that has taken off like a rocket! I love her style and she does so many fun things. She's very creative in so many ways. She started doing boudoir sessions earlier this year and they turned out so great! Very tasteful and classy, what a great gift idea for your hubby. (If you're brave enough...which I'm not :) She's recently started doing weddings as well and she does such an amazing job! She did this birth story for her nephew when her sister was giving birth, loved it! How awesome to have something like that captured in such an amazing way!

 Second, Alisha Shaw of One Memory at a Time Photography

Alisha is a friend of a friend. I've had my eye on her blog for awhile now and yesterday I had the pleasure of attending a 1 day digi scrap workshop that she was teaching. Loved it! She taught us so many fun things. I can't say I can open up photoshop right away and whip out some amazing layouts just yet, but she gave us the tools we needed to get started! This recent bridal shoot she did is so amazing! Gorgeous bride, gorgeous photos, gorgeous colors and probably the most fabulous shoes I've ever seen! Loved it! I love the urban feel to this family shoot she did. So great. Someone asked yesterday if she could show us how to "slim ourselves down" and she told us the most amazing story. She talked about how so many women put off family photos "til I lose 10 lbs" etc, (come on, you know you all do!) and how important it is to capture who you are now, because you are beautiful no matter what. She stressed the importance of capturing the memory for our children and loved ones regardless of our size, because that might be the last picture they have of us. It was such a great experience learning from her yesterday!

Third, Lynette Thiriot of Photography By Lynette

I've known Lynette since we were kids! We grew up here together in this small town that I still call home. She's just started her business a little over a year ago and she does a great job! She did our family pictures this past October and I loved them! This past spring, she did a maternity shoot for our good friend who was about to have her baby. Turned out so cute! I loved how this family shoot turned out too! Also, Lynette has offered to do a giveaway for a mini session on See it! Love it! Win it! next month! Be sure to stay tuned for that!

Be sure to check these girls out if you are ever in their area and in need of a fabulous photographer!
Also, let me know of any great photography blogs you like, I love checking them out!

Hoo are you Tuesdays!

Here is this week's installment of Hoo are you? Tuesdays! Check this out to see what it's all about and come and participate, it's fun!

1. What are some of your pet peeves?

Guys with long fingernails, when the inside of a vehicle is dirty/cluttered, people who let the door slam in your face instead of holding it open for you, people who are constantly pitying themselves...there are plenty more but I'll stop there.

2. Do you have a favorite or lucky number?

13 baby! When I was pregnant with Ryan, the Dr and I were looking at the calendar to choose a date for the c section. I told her I preferred a Tuesday, so I would be released Friday and Jeremy would be off work for the weekend. She suggested Tues, March 13th, but then said how all her patients usually steer clear of the 13th. I told her I loved the number so we went with it. Dumb little story, but I figured why not tell it!?

3. What is one of your family traditions?

I can't think of any original ones off the top of my head other than new PJ's on Christmas Eve, etc.

4. Is there anything you are OC about?

What am I not obsessive about!? I'm obsessive about how the laundry is done in general, I'm obsessive about how the dishwasher is loaded, how the bathroom is cleaned...

5. What is your favorite kind of food?

I'd probably say pizza or nachos. I could eat them everyday!
