she loves dancing,
she tells us the funniest jokes,
she loves puzzles,
she wants a mirror attached to a comb for Christmas,
she is a great big sister
she is sassy
she breaks out in song (rock style) at any given moment
she has mastered a southern accent and will randomly break out in that at any given moment as well,
she says prayers by herself (for the most part)
she loves to laugh,
she enjoys wrestling with her daddy,
she makes Kehl laugh out loud,
but more than anything,
she makes me smile!

That being said, I had a great day with the parentals at a wedding of a childhood friend. Just my parents and I. I got to see many people who have influenced my life for good and I'm so grateful for them.
But these two have taught me the most and I'm so blessed to be theirs. Forever.

I must admit, I miss Riverton, for very many reasons, but one big one, is I feel like I was my own self. I didn't care about what anyone else thought of me, aside from my Heavenly Father, Rob and Evva.
I feel like that is something I'm really struggling with these days...but I'm getting there. I'm slowly starting to feel like I can and want to do things again. I'm glad that I took on sewing projects this Halloween because I needed it. I'm getting there. Today I painted a desk I've been wanting to paint for years.
It's just an adjustment, and I feel like the past year of our lives have been constant adjustment. First we move to Garland, then we move to Brigham, Rob was in Football, I was pregnant and SICK! We had house projects, then baby projects, then baby, then summer (thought there would be relief), my amazing husband took a job that was WAY more than what we were bargaining for and it ended up being a big blessing, then Football was underway again, school, and now, just now...one year later... I feel like I'm starting to feel like myself again.
But the truth is, I miss that girl I was. Can I be the good parts of her again? 'Cause really, I know I've learned a lot since then, but it was good then. There were a lot of good parts. And now...now I'm lost. I don't know who I am with my peers. (Is this high school?) I feel like I have to conform here. To what, I'm not sure. I'm just so torn. I don't have a person here. Nothing comes naturally, I feel like I have to force many things here.
There are glimpses that I get that I feel come from my Heavenly Father. Little thoughts when I see women I've looked up to for years in the community out and about, I have the thought of gratitude that my children will know them. And thoughts that if they can be happy here, I can be happy here. But it's hard. And the hard part is, I don't recall feeling this way with Evva, but perhaps I did. I just know that I'm going to get better at the little things. Little things with my kids and my husband. I'm going to take it all in and write it all down, and I'm going to aline my desires with the person that God wants me to be.

Hello to all my friends. We are still alive and well. We are now in our house and finding out that homeownership is not as fun as it's made out to be, at least not all the time. We are changing a lot and slowly making it ours. But I guess the good think about owning your home is that you can change stuff. Kind of a double edged sword. We've redone the bathroom, and are currently waiting for furniture to place in our family room. We've been watching TV with the Lazy-boy, and a sleeping bag on the floor. I think college dorms have it better than us down there.
Pictures to come, I promise.
That aside, I miss being in SLC for many reasons, but this one found me today. So...is anyone game? Want to go? They have THE BEST and cutest modern stuff! Seriously, I was quite unimpressed with all Peach Days had to offer. The Bijou market is where it is at. I promise you'll come back with lots of fun stuff! Anyone, Anyone? I'm thinking about going Friday.
Click the flyer to see the vendors, and then call, text, fb, or leave a comment and tell me when you want to/can go, because you will!
