A little behind...

So I now I am little behind but on Nov. 8th Johnny and I celebrated 6 years of marriage! Seriously... 6 YEARS! Crazy I know...

In those 6 years of wedded bliss we have moved 8 times, gotten a puppy, lived in Las Vegas, bought a new car (2008 Scion xB that we still LOVE) and best of all, had a baby! I can't believe that we have been married that long... I still feel like a newly wed!

On the 8th we left Arbor with my parents(only the 2nd time in 2 years that we have left him over night) and went to Anniversary Inn in Logan. Johnny up keeps their website so we get a killer deal! We stayed in La Hacienda the first night. The room was AWESOME! It was so cozy! Then on Monday night we stayed in Bikers Roadhouse. That one was so fun! We played pool and pin ball all night!

During the day we went to Bear Lake. It was cold but so pretty! The canyon there is beautiful! Johnny took this picture of the river. He has a good eye for these things!

Anyways.. It was so nice to get away even though we couldn't wait to get back to Arbor!

I love you baby and can't wait to spend 6 more wonderful years with you!

Fun things!

So since we have gotten a new camera we are very VERY picture happy! Ha ha we are always taking pictures! These are just a couple of my favs! I was trying so hard to get Arbor to hold still and take some pics with me but, of course he wouldn't! But we still got some cute ones. I can't believe I have a blue eyed baby! His eyes are sooooo blue! I love it! Thank you Johnny! Ha ha The last pic is cinnamon twists and mini cinnamon pull-a-parts! They were so good! I was really proud of myself! Ha ha I made them from scratch and they turned out really good. Both Arbor and Johnny loved them!

Anyways... Just wanted to share some cute pics!

Wanted to share this!

So living down in Southern Utah we are very lucky to live close to Zion and Kolob! The scenery here is amazing! We recently bought a new camera just so we could take some nice pictures of the beautiful scenery!

This is one of my favorite pictures. I took this awhile ago and I love it! I hope you like it too! This is in Zion canyon but on the way to Kolob reservoir.

Johnny has all of the pics on his computer so I will get some more up once I get them from his computer!

We are back!!

So after taking some time off from the computer and other things I am back! Sooo I will get to some updating!

First off.. We moved! We are now living in St. George! I love it! I will never move back to Utah County... I love my new house. It has a HUGE yard and the neighborhood is great! I will get some pictures up soon!

Arbor is now 2!!!! I cant believe it! It feels like just yesterday I found out I was pregnant! He is soooo adorable! He talks all the time and loves to give hugs and play! He is obsessed with Spongebob and love PB and J sandwiches! He is one happy baby... I mean BIG BOY!

Johnny and I have almost been married for 6 years! HOLY CRAP! It doesn't feel that long even though I fee like I have known him forever! He is the best. I don't know what I would do without him!

So other then that stuff there isn't much else! Ha ha wow...

Arbor's hair!

So Arbor has been needing a haricut for awhile now. My family was calling him a hippie so I finally took him to get it cut on Sat. He was so good and the stylist loved him! I decided to take a chance and cut it short enough to spike! I can't believe how much hair he had! He looks adorable! He looks like a little boy instead of a baby now.. It kind of makes me sad that he is getting so big! So the first picture is the only one I could get of him that wasn't blurry.. He was too busy talking to people at Wal Mart. Seriously.. He said Hi to everyone that walked past. We had like 10 people stop and talk to him. He is so friendly! And then the other pic is of his pretty blue eyes.. I couldnt resist putting it up!

New things!

So I have never really liked the way my front room looked. It was so boring and messy and had no decorations! So Johnny let me redecorate! I love it now! We started off with getting an entertainment center made! My brother, Levi, is AMAZING! We told him what we wanted and he made it. It is SO nice and we love it. It is exactly what we wanted! If you are interested in having Levi make you anything click here http://rustictouch.blogspot.com/ and take a look. He is really talented!

So after we got the entertainment center Johnny decided to splurge and get me decorations for mothers day! He got me 2 Palms, candles and candle holders, 2 bakers racks and the sticks that go in scented oil. I am so spoiled! He also got me earrings and roses! :) He's good to me!

So then on Tuesday we got the best part of the whole room! A new sectional! I love it! It is cozy and looks nice. We also got a rug that pulls the whole room together! And on Saturday we are getting a new kitchen table! My house is really starting to look nice and I am ready to have my family come down so I can show it off!

In other news.. Arbor is so busy! He talks so much and is saying new words everyday! My favorite thing he says is love you. It sounds more like loves chew but it's adorable. He is also sleeping in his big boy bed now! I can't believe it! We set up his bed in his room and never forced him to sleep in it. We were just waiting for him to decide when he wanted to sleep in it. So last week I told him it was nap time and he ran in his room and hopped on his bed and had his nap there! I seriously wanted to cry! My baby is turning into a little boy! Last night was his first time sleeping through the night in it. I guess we can take down the crib now..

Johnny is still working hard. He has picked up alot of side work and is pretty busy. We love nursery even though I get frustrated with it at times. Arbor loves nursery too!

It's been awhile!

I just had to put these pictures of Arbor up! They are adorable! We got all of the kids together for a quick photo shoot while we were in Orem for Easter. My sister in law Lyndsy took these and they are amazing! She did an awesome job! I think I will just go to her for pictures from now on!

My kid is the next Piccaso!

Arbor loves to draw! We first discoverd this when we got him an Aquadoodle for Christmas. He playes with it for hours! He loves to just sit in his room and doodle something and say "wow"! So then for Valentines Day we got him some markers and crayons and sidewalk chalk. He loved the chalk and wanted to eat the crayons and all he wanted to do with the markers was take the lid off then put it bakc on.. at first.. Then he discoverd that you can draw all over your hands with markers.. Then he discovered you can draw all over your tummy with markers and your face too! Thank heavens we got the washable ones because he discovered yesterday that you can draw on the back of the couch and all over the glass door with markers too! Oh boy.. What a mess! I couldnt help but laugh because he was so proud of it! Well I threw his markers away... I just dont think he is old enough for them! Ha ha

In other exciting news Johnny and I have been called into the Nursery at church! I know I am probably the only person who is ok with going into Nursery but we can bring Arbor with us! So I am happy about it. We will see what it's like because I live on a gold course in Hurricane.. So needless to say the majority of my ward is old, retired people... So I dont know how many kids there will be in Nursery! This will be a good experience though and we are excited!

Boys will be boys right?!

So I guess I left the fridge open a little bit earlier today becuase Arbor was able to get in and get Strawberry Syrup out and play in it! It was a HUGE mess! He had it all over his legs and feet and around his mouth! This picture was after I freaked out thinking he was bleeding and took his shirt off! He was standing there going "Uh oh"! The other picture is how I found him when I went to check on him while I was doing dishes! He is always so busy! And this was all in just one day!

Then the movie is just him being cute. He thought I was taking a picture so he kept saying "cheese"! I love his little funny guts!

As a side not Johnny bought me a Dyson Vaccum! It's the ball one. I am in LOVE with it! I vaccum like 10 times a day now!

Just a cute video..

Arbor is so funny! I had to put this video up cause not only does it show his cute face but it also shows his chatty side..

So I cut Arbor's hair last night! I kept it shaggy and trimmed it a little! I love his shaggy look! I think it's adorable! I think in the summer I will cut it so I can spike it. Plus if I cut it all off it will just grow back right?!!

So I am happy to say I am completely off soda! All I drink is water! It's a miracle! I never thought I would be able to do it! It feels really good. I feel alot better. I have also been watching my calories and tracking what I eat and how much I execise! I found a really cool site that I highly recommend! It's called thedailyplate.com! It is wonderful! I keep track of all the food I eat and how many calories I can eat and any type of exercise I do. Plus there are groups to join and everyone is really nice! So check it out!

I have been walking on my Treadmill for 30 mins everyday. My body hates me for it but I hope I will get used to it soon.

Today has been really tough for me though. I think the stresses of life are really getting me down. Today I really wanted to give up. My starting weight (dare I say it ).... was 298.. Yeah bad.. then 2 days ago I was down to 295! But then today I went to 300 lbs! It's my worst nightmare! I know results take time but it's just a real downer to see that. I dunno.. Maybe tomorrow will be better.

In other news Johnny will be 27 tomorrow!! Wow what an old man! Ha ha


Also go check out Arbor's totsite!

To cut or not to cut...

So Arbor needs a haircut. And I have been thinking about cutting it so that I can spike it! But I am not sure because I love his shaggy hair look , I just can't do anything with it! So these pictures are of Arbor's 1st haricut and then one of when he was little with spikey hair!

How should I cut his hair?!
