Let me update you on my life

Hi. Remember me?  Yep, I’m still alive.

I have not written a blog in a long time.  And by a long time, I mean I haven’t written since November.  Let me assure you, It was not because I didn’t have anything to write about. It was quite the opposite actually.  A lot has happened in the last six months.  Let me quickly break it down for you.
Since November:

I celebrated my birthday.


We went to Quinn’s Hot Springs

We celebrated Christmas… of course.


We rang in a new year.

The Hunger Games finally came out… and I loved it.  I saw it in the theater three times.

I read a ton of books.

I watched way too much Netflix.

Winter came and went with hardly any snow this year. Here’s a picture of one of the few times we actually got snow. I think it lasted three days before it all melted.


My best friend Johna moved back from Montana.

Chris went to school to get a CDL, and he has a new job now. Thankfully, he found something local so he’s not gone all the time.

I’m sure some other noteworthy things happened, but they were all overshadowed by this news:


We found out that we were expecting in September.  We were so excited, but I didn’t want to tell anyone until the pregnancy passed the three month mark.  As a blogger, I found it very difficult to come up with things to write about because the only thing I wanted to write about was the baby. It caused some major writer’s block. I did a couple of posts, but my heart just wasn’t in it.  I decided to just stay away from the blogging world until we had our first ultrasound and we knew that it was a healthy pregnancy. After the ultrasound, I just felt too tired.  I had a pretty easy pregnancy, but man, I was exhausted.  I would sit down at the computer and think to myself… nap, or blog? nap or blog?  Nap won every time.

Fast forward to now, and I have a happy, healthy little boy named Tanner.  He was born on May 7th, 2012.


Now I have a ton of stuff to blog about.  Stay tuned for all the birth details, some pregnancy stories, and my life as a new mother. Trust me, the writer’s block is a thing of the past.
