Welcome to Idaho...

The roads weren't too bad which was nice! The thing I hate AND love about road trips is you get to snack the whole entire way. So I probably gained a pound or two. Braun was being so funny on the way here. You would of thought it was American Idol. Here he is singing into his sunflower seed bottle! I can't figure out how to turn it the right way.

Playing with some different functions on my computer! haha!

And me being a HEFFER!

On the RoAd again.....

"I can't wait to get on the road again!!!" We are going to Idaho in the morning to go to the Rexburg temple open house! It should be a good ole' time. Braun's moms family all lives up there so it will be fun to see all of them. I am going to read my book the whole way up there! I can't wait.

Okay, so I found a new blog and I LOVE it. So, to all of you fellow crafter/scrapbookers out there. Check out this girls blog. It is filled with fun ideas! She is a fellow UTAHN as well! I just love her style of stuff and how she records herself scrapbooking! I really need to start scrapbooking again. I have an entire craft room overflowing with some great things and I just never find the time to use it. If any of you are ever bored one day and feel like taking on a rambunctious 1 year old for a day, feel free. There are plenty of things that I would love to be able to do all day! I never knew how different things could be having children. And I only have ONE!! I am sure you moms out there with a few kids are just laughing at me! Emery is at a hard age. She is wanting to be so independent (which isn't necessarily a bad thing!) but she is constantly getting hurt! Just today, we went to the new Curdz 'n Wey store in Draper. (It is a cute little kids store) and in the course of about an hour, she had bloodied her lip, cut her cheek, fallen on the ground who knows how many times, got 2 bruises above her eye, gotten her arm stuck in some toy... hmm... anything else? She seriously needs to be bubble wrapped. Good Idea Mom. On a lighter note, they had the most adorable chairs in this store! They are designed to look like a retro car. I took some pictures of Em and Kendall hanging out on the chairs! I love them! They wouldn't sit still, so they are a little blurry!

Also, Bath and Body Works is having their Semi Annual Sale. My favorite! All of their body creams are only $3! Thats a first!

Anyway, it is definately time to go to bed. I am already falling asleep!

Love You All! Have a safe New Years! See you in 2oo8!

I will leave you with an old pic that I found tonight! Actually, it is just a few months old! It is from the airplane ride home from Grand Cayman! It was taken with my Computer!

Merry Christmas!!!

Can you believe Christmas is here? Can you believe I am blogging on Christmas day?? I am just a die hard blogger I guess. So... we are having an awesome Christmas! We woke up at 8:30 and went to get Em out of bed.


She then came out into the front room and didn't even care about her presents! I had them all wrapped up (which was a pointless thing to do- but it was fun!) I am pretty sure that we were more excited than she was. Here are some pictures from this morning. Don't mind us.. we look terrible.




Her favorite present of all!!



For christmas this year, we went to Mexico.. so we didn't do anything big for each other! We got each other 1 gift. (Okay, we got each other a few, but these were the ones we got to open on Christmas!--my other present was blogged about in the last post. My luscious locks!! Okay, anyways... This was mine! I LOVE James Patterson books. They are amazing! I have been waiting for this one for a long time!


Braun was in his SKIVVY's while we opened up presents. Definition of SKIVVY's is Underpants--if you didn't know. So, the only picture I got of Braun is this one. His FEET! He is wearing his present though! He got some new basketball shoes!


Let me tell you a little story. I think that our house is in the middle of a tornado at all times. Seriously, we have so much wind at our house it is awful. WELL.... we got home from Brauns parents house last night at like 11:00. Braun decides that he needs to go and shovel our driveway and the sidewalks. So he does. He finishes up at like 12:30 or so. Mind you, it is FRIGIDLY freezing outside. Seriously, between the snow and the wind.. I am suprised his toes aren't BLACK with frostbite. Well, he comes in. We go to bed. Fast forward to this morning. We go outside and there is literally (NO exaggeration) 2 feet of snow back on our driveway. On part of our driveway, there is 3 feet of snow. We even measured!!

So Braun goes back out and starts shoveling. Well... he pushes all the snow to the bottom of our driveway.

I go out and start joking with him that he barricaded us in. He says..."Oh Please Tara. I will be able to get out. No problem!" Yeah right. So he goes and makes it out fine. Well next thing I know, he has HIGH CENTERED his car and is completely stuck in the snow horizontally at the end of the driveway. He is such a dork! Here are pictures!



And here he is digging it out!


Emery loved it!

All I want for Christmas is a little.....

TRASH!!! I discovered the coolest things today! They are called "Trash Ties" by Heather Bailey. Not only is she one of my favorite fabric designers.. now she is making some awesome hair things! LOVE THEM!!

The down side of ordering them is that shipping is taking like 2-4 weeks, but I don't care! I ordered them in brown and cream. If you want some, go to TRASHTIES.COM Be sure to check out the GALLERY to see the pictures. Is anyone else obsessed yet???

BTW... I took some awesome hair growth pills and my hair is all the sudden REALLLLY long.. haha! JK.. I got extensions and am thrilled! I will come back and post pics soon! They are so fun :)

Okay.. here I am. Eat your heart out!! :) haha.. I am super cheezy in this!

Dear Blog,

I am so sorry for neglecting you. I will make it up to you somehow. I thought I could handle vacations AND blogging, but apparently not. I was never good at multi-tasking. Please accept these photos as a peace offering.


Your blog Mother, Tara

Okay, so I am SOOO loving how girly Emery is getting lately. She loves snuggling with her mom and dad, she pretends to put on lipstick with ANYTHING that she can (whether it be a spoon, tampon, actual lipstick, whatever....) She walks around with a purse all day. She loves baby dolls... anyway, you get the point. I snapped these pictures of her this morning with my iPhone. So sorry for the bad quality! Anyway, I thought they were cute..

P.S. I will blog more about my Mexico trip this week. Not the cruise, but the Mexico trip with our families! I got lots of fun pictures!

I can't sleep...

so therefore, I BLOG!!! Well our Mexico trip was a success! We really had a lot of fun. Besides the boat being MAJORLY rocky on the way back, I had a great time. The first 2 days I thought I was going to be really sea sick since almost anything that moves makes me sick but I did pretty good. I took Dramamine just as a precaution and that stuff knocks me out! Braun and I both slept for a good 30 hours. It was pretty relaxing though. Braun's luggage got lost on the first day, so he had one pair of shorts, one swimsuit and a few other odds and ends. On the LAST DAY of the trip as we were about to get off the ship, we got a phonecall saying that his luggage had been found 2 doors down from us in (get this) SOMEONE FROM OUR GROUPS cabin! I wanted to strangle the dang girl whose cabin it was found in! It had been sitting on her couch the whole week. What an IDIOT!

Since being back, I have been super busy. Too Busy for my liking. We have our ward christmas party this Friday. I got put in charge of 40 table decorations. Do I want to strangle myself? You bet! Nah-- I got it covered. So between doing hair, Bitsy Blossoms, ward parties, achievement days, Emery being sick, my house being a disaster and getting ready to go to Cancun on Sunday......... I am feeling a bit OVERWHELMED!!! Thanks for the vent.

Oh here is a story, today I was walking through the beauty supply. Emery REFUSES to sit like a normal child in the front of the cart so I let her stand up in the back. Well, I stop to look at some hair spray and Emery goes to reach for a stuffed animal thing that is on the other side of the aisle. Next thing I know, she is falling out of the cart. She landed on her poor little head. I felt terrible. She immediately started BAWLING. We had just barely left her doctors appointment to get her cold checked on and get her a flu shot. So I left the beauty supply and headed back to the doctors. It really scared me because she fell from quite high! The doctors checked her out and said to just watch her for the next few days and make sure she is doing okay. So far so good! Besides the fact that she is WAY onry because of her cold. Today has been quite the day. I am glad that it is almost over. Anyway, I am not feeling very motivated to post pictures of our trip right now. Sorry! But if you have facebook, you can check them out there!
