Dental Office Christmas Hoopla

This was the longest table i have ever seen... we had the office party in a swanky steak house in a CASINO- yes we live in Nevada. It was so posh and the food was amazing. I think we each had a waiter, had to make sure our glasses were filled- and some were maybe tipsy.

My Michael Kors dress that i purchased in IDAHO!

I had three shirley temples, 5 bloody mary's (vigin of course- although some did not believe when i almost went into the gentlemans restroom), hot cocoa and water. What can i say i like liquids?

I posted this for Koseli and Shirsti who have seen first hand (in Virgina) how much i love crab!

Thank Heavens For Idaho Potatos and Idaho Family

Kevin and Bear with Great Grandma Cook. Lola Cook is an incredible woman and has been living a wonderful life full of purpose, meaning and kindness. She is 85 years old and has 30+ great grandchildren. I love her and her name so I am hoping to name a little one after her.

My mom was actually roommates with Kevs mom at BYU. One holiday season she came to this very house we are in over 35 years ago. If only they would have known- Bevs son would marry Carols daughter.

Peterson home and pool time-

Barek is a water baby and got so excited to get into the pools. Luckly they are indoor at the Peterson home so he got a lot of water time.

Thanksgiving Day
We are thankful for you sweet baby boy Barek.

Bear put on a happy face even though he had ear infections- he is just so amazingly sweet and from this trip we learned he is really a crowd pleaser.

Barek's little Haven on Earth

Jess and I had a lot of fun taking pictures of our little ones- Barek and Haven
(who is absolutely gorgeous just like her mom).
I have thought a bit about their first date-
15 years & 4 months from now.

Haunting Halloween

Petite Peterson Pleasures

Barek's first graham cracker.
And there was a bubble bath right after...

Just for the friends that have been asking- or "missing my outfits."

Yes I made these. And Yes this is my sweet little prince modeling them... times are tough.

Salt Lake Temple...

Attending weddings always fills me with nostalgia and memories. Sitting in the temple again holding the hand of my own prince charming... almost 7 years later and understanding love in a deeper sense. I look forward to what the future holds for our little family of three and feel so thankful to be married to this man for time and all eternity. This is the buiding in which Kev and I were married, gorgeous is just the start.

Juicy is As Juicy Does...

I love this time of year. Cuddling under blankets, sky high boots, pumpkin candles, glittering decorations and layering beautiful things on beautiful things. Festive is a great accessory.

The perfect satin bow, a dangling charm and shiny gold bottle is the perfect prelude to the scent inside. Oh how i love Juicy... this is my scent for fall.

Christensen Family Pictures

We had a wonderful time during our Utah visit home. Family makes everything more dramatic, loud and magical. I love you each so very much.

Make you blush

I am so in love with this- Posie by benefit. It is like their original benetint but softer. For a soft flush apply to apples of cheeks and then don't forget to Posie your pout and then gloss it up girl. Absolutely a brilliant buy- of course i feel most my buys are.

But it has kissing clasps...

Do i really need a number 30'ish Coach bag? Probably not, but then again need was never the driving force. The desire comes from imagining myself pulling out a lip gloss, organizing my adorable matching accessories in their new nest or this bag with those heels, boots or nothing at all. Oh, how i do love to celebrate being a woman!

Sunday Hoopla...

28 weeks old and squealing like a little girl- I assure Kev he will get a man voice one day.
Barek loves his legs tickled, his toes in his mouth, papa time (manly time) and sneezing.

Six Months of Bear Lovin...

Mister Barek Gabriel has graced us with his presence for six months now. He enjoys kicking wildly during bath time, looking at his handsome self in the mirror, eating perfectly warmed cereal and getting smother loved by me (until he can say different he loves it) and gently loved by Kev. His bed time is 8:00 and he nestles right in and loves to sleep on his belly. Kev and I get really excited to wake him up because he is just so sweet and smiles lazily at us. He wakes up around 10:00 and you all know I have been in a bad habit of sleep endulging. Barek is crazy about Kevin and starts kicking when he sees him. I am so happy to have this little boy to take care of and over love. I dreamed my whole life of what my children would be like. It is a wonderful relief to have him in my arms and full of excitement for all his new discoveries. We love you Bear. Happy Half Birthday.
