Carter's Birthday Celebration!

For Carter's birthday, we went down to Provo to spend the day with his family. The day was spent visiting, shooting, having a nice dinner in Springville, UT and then going back and enjoying a Lemon Meringue Pie made by my Mother-In-Law.
Me and my little Max, going shooting:)
My Sister-In-Law Nicole, and her little guy, Ike.

Max had to spend most of the time in the car. It was FREEZING!
Carter and Rob (Brother-In-Law), showing off their guns.
Delicious Lemon Meringue Pie we were able to enjoy after dinner!
Because the Lemon Meringue Pie would be destroyed with candles, we made Carter hold a handful of lit candles instead. It was fine until the wax started melting LOL!

New Beginnings

I'm now to a point in my life that I'm more happy than I have been in quite some time. With that it seems that I've naturally taken more of an interest in organizing other parts of my life. It's such an amazing feeling to have a completely clean and organized home and life!

“Life is too complicated not to be orderly.” Martha Stewart

I couldn't agree with that quote more. With all the life stresses that are out there, it's nice to know that I have a home that I am proud to come home to and call my "safe haven".

It's Been a While...

Well it's been over 2 years since the last time I posted something in my blog. My husband fixed my computer, so I feel the need to do a little catching up. A lot has happened within the last 2 years but to make it a little easier, I will focus on the highlights:)

1. We bought a house in Cedar City.
2. Carter received his Bachelor's Degree.
3. We have a new addition to our family named Max. (He's a Maltese-Poodle and most likely the most spoiled little dog ever!)
4. I got to travel to Jacksonville, FL to my job and was able to go to Disneyworld for the first time!
5. I was chosen to travel to Columbia, South America for an entire month to help train other supervisors.
6. Carter finally graduated with his Master's in Accounting!
7. Carter was hire for the Utah State Tax Commission.
8. We moved to Ogden, Utah and we love it (although we both have to commute to Salt Lake City, but we enjoy where we live)
9. I've lost 34 lbs!
10. We bought myself a BEAUTIFUL Baldwin Grand!!

Life has become more relaxed and I think that we are happy where we are right now. So I guess that this gets me a little caught up on what has been happening in our lives, and I promise that my blog will be updated more often than every 2 years!

Happy Birthday Honey!

Feb. 3rd was Carter's birthday. Nothing special, especially where he had to write a paper in between dinner and cake. I felt bad that he was stuck writing a paper, literally his whole birthday, but that's school for ya- I guess. I made him a cake. And sang to him. Have you ever sang "Happy Birthday" to someone by yourself? It's kind of awkward Carter got a bike a couple months ago and I got the camera, both WAY more money than we should have spent, so those counted as our Christmas and birthday presents.

Nothing incredibly special or important has happened since the last time I posted, except that we have finally moved out of our apartment into a house. OK, so I guess that is pretty important! :) There's several things that are great about this house compared to the apartment we were living in. 1. NO MORE NEIGHBORS!!! It's so nice not being woke up in the middle of the night being able to hear conversations clear as day! There was even a particular night when they were watching Grease, and it sounded like the movie was playing in our room! I was even singing along...ha ha. 2. We have more space. 3. We finally can use our grill that we got for our wedding 1 1/2 years ago, that has been sitting in a storage space. 4. I have a washer and dryer!!! Now this is a HUGE thing because I have been going to a laundry mat for the past 4 years. We save money and time with that! The other nice thing is that when you find a hair on your clothes, you KNOW it's yours.... lol... I know... gross, but it's true! 5. We have a dishwasher. 6. We lucked out, this house is pretty darn decent and it's only $50 more than what we were paying for the apartment.

Life is going great. I'm trying to have a better attitude and outlook to life, and to be honest, I feel happier. I love my husband, we both have good jobs, we're in a house, and there's not many things that we're too worried about right now. If something does make a bump in our road, we'll get past it without looking back. Life is for living, and I plan to do just that!

Take care!

Michelle's Bridal Pictures

Since my sister pretty much refuses to make her own blog, I wanted to post some of the pictures I had the privilege of being a part of. My brother actually took the photos and it was the first time I was able to sit back and help with the other challenging part of photography.... the posing. It was really fun to be a part of it and I think I was able to learn a lot from my brother. Here are a few that are my favorites.

The whole day we were taking these pictures, I had the hardest time realizing that my little sister was getting married.... I guess she'll always be my 10 year old annoying little sister to me forever in my heart :) Love you Michelley

My Sister's Wedding

So like I said in my past post, I would love to start seriously getting involved with photography. I was playing around with this photo from my sister's wedding, and I thought it ended up really well! This photo was actually taken with just my regular little digital camera, but I was more working on the editing part of it. I think I may frame this and give it to my sister for Christmas... so Michelle... if you see this- act surprised :)
