I hope you all had a perfect Thanksgiving full of family and turkey!
I had an amazing day! I however forgot my camera and my grandparents house so pictures will have to come later.
But being Thanksgiving and all here is what I am thankful for:
I am thankful for my health. That I have a body that works and a mind that is clear.
I am thankful for a very hard working husband.
I am thankful for the most incredible sweet baby girl who brings so much light into my life. She makes me proud every day with how smart and happy she is. I would be lost without this little girl. She is everything to me.
I am thankful for amazing parent who raised me so well, who love me unconditionally.
For siblings who always lift me up.
I am thankful for my awesome in-laws. I am so blessed to be apart of their family!!!
For my friends who have stuck with me through thick and thin! You know who you are!
Now for some silly things..
I am thankful for The Vampire Diaries.
I am thankful for Netflix & Hulu Plus.
I am thankful for my car in the winter time. and in the summer time...
I am thankful for diet coke probably the most... cause it's so good.
I am thankful for Barney for making Brooklynn happy while I take a shower.
I am thankful for my bed because it's so comfortable.
But mostly I am thankful for family. Because without them I would have nothing.
I do have one photo that I took with my phone today. Since there was about a thousand people at my grandparents today we had a very overwhelmed baby girl who would not take a nap in her pack n play. The only way she would sleep is on the bed with me. I can't say I hated it. I love snuggling with my sweet baby girl! (sorry for the bad quality!)
One of my family's favorite place to eat while in Utah is Nielsen's Frozen Custard. It is this tiny cute little place that has burgers and fries and really really really good shakes. We love it a lot. It was the perfect pre thanksgiving dinner and dessert! Brooke of course loved playing with her cousins and they love her so much it's adorable!! I am so excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow! My mom always makes the most amazing thanksgiving meal! HAPPY THANKS GIVING EVERYONE!
Most of my family has made it out here to Utah so today we of course all got together for some fun fun times! We went to Discovery Gateway which is this awesome kids museum, discovery place. There is so many different things that kids can do to explore and create! We all had so much fun! I was surprised at how much Brooklynn actually liked the place! She played in the water part for a long time and actually hit me in the face when I picked her up to move on to something else. That was fun. haha. We're working on "soft". ;)
After we were done at Discovery we headed over to our place since no one in my family has seen where we live. Then we had Noodles for dinner which is seriously amazing. Now they are all staying at my grandparents house and we are home, the baby is in bed, and we're watching the season finale of Dancing With The Stars. Who's gonna win?! I have no idea!!!
Our friends Heather and Jake came over to watch the AMA's and brought dessert! It was a fun night and I am very happy that Taylor Swift won artist of the year. You can argue that she doesn't sound all that great live, but she writes ALL of her own music and I think that makes her a GREAT artist! :)
Also, my family is coming in to town for Thanksgiving and it's SO nice that they are coming to us. We have been traveling so much over that past few months that we are thankful that we don't have to go anywhere! We can't wait to have some good fun family time this week!
Before I get started on the snow.. look at this cute Texas Rangers baby.
Last night it snowed here in Salt Lake. Honestly, I hate the freezing cold but the snow can be so beautiful! After going to see Abduction with my girlfriend Ashley (which by the way, was not all that great but Taylor Laughtner is super cute), I went to one of the many beautiful parks around here and took some photos.
Utah just got it's first H&M!! Well, maybe there is one somewhere else in Utah but not in a 50 mile radius of Salt Lake City!! So I of course had to go check it out. Espeically because a friend of mine got me a gift card to H&M for my birthday! So my friend Rachel, her new baby Lexy, me and Brookes headed to the mall. It of course, was amazing, but I'm not sure it was worth the crowd! Holy moly there were 10 thousand people in there and it seemed like everyone also had a stroller! Talk about a stroller traffic jam! I think next time I go back I'll go right when the mall opens to hopefully beat the crowd! But despite the crowd I ended up getting myself a shirt and shirt for Brookes! We ended the mall trip with a food court lunch!
such a cutie!!
Now, tonight I'll be going to the midnight showing of Breaking Dawn Pt. 1!!
Even though after watching all of The Vampire Diaries my mind is all about those hot vampires it's time to get into the Twilight zone! haha
Brooklynn loves reading books. It makes me happy how much she loves them. She loves them SO much she even likes to eat them!
No, but really. Even if we aren't reading books she likes to pull ALL of her books off the shelf and she will sit right in the middle and look through all of her books. It is seriously the sweetest thing.
Look at that smile!! I cannot get enough of this little sweet girl. I love watching her learn. She is even learning about the things she cannot do. And she loves to test us. It's pretty funny.
