Waco, TX trip 2016

40th Anniversary Trip

My husband and I just got back from a 40th Anniversary Trip!  Our main destination was not to a tropical island, or a romantic European adventure, or some other world-wide spot, but rather it was to Waco, Texas…yes you heard me right…Waco, Texas and Magnolia Farms!

I love the show “Fixer Upper” and this was a dream trip for me!  I loved the family atmosphere and ALL of the people/employees were so friendly and helpful!  I was amazed at how friendly and kind everyone was no matter where we went in Texas!

Swiss Days 2014

My Swiss Days Treasures

This past weekend is one of my favorite weekends of the whole year!   Every year on the Friday and Saturday before Labor Day, is Swiss Days in Midway, Utah.  They have a giant boutique with really good quality products!  It is always a mad house and it is the only time that I will go into the crowds to go shopping!  I really do not like crowds all that much, but I look forward to this boutique in spite of all the people!  :)Swiss Days 2014 Continue reading

3 Friday’s Favorite Finds!

Today I want to share a few new favorite finds that I found!  

I have lived in Utah most of my life and I had never heard of Pirate O’s!  It is such a fun store that I just happened to find last week!  My husband and I were driving down the road and I yelled, “turn around!”  Well, I really said can you please turn around right here!  :)  And being the great husband that he is…he did!  This is what caught my eye:

Our Arizona Trip

My husband and I went on our annual trip to Arizona!  We were gone about 10 days and we had a great time.  We have been making this trip for about 7 or 8 years now!  We go down for baseball Spring Training, (or at least that is what my husband goes for!)   I go for the wonderfully warm weather and to just get away from it all!

Meeting P-Dub aka Pioneer Woman!

My DIL and I have been waiting for a picture of us and the Pioneer Woman together; it was supposed to be emailed to us from the RootsTech conference… but it has not come yet and I decided that I would go ahead and do this post.  When the picture comes I will insert it later. :) 

This is a picture that she signed for me!


 I asked my DIL if she would consider writing this post and she very graciously agreed!  So this is her version of what happened that day! Continue reading


Sunny Arizona

My husband and I just got back from our annual trip to Sunny Arizona!  We go every year for Spring Training Baseball, well at least that is what we say we go for, but we pack a whole lot more into this trip than just baseball!  My number one favorite reason for going this time of year is for the beautiful sunny skies!  It is always so warm and wonderful every year when we go and I love just soaking in all of that gorgeous sunshine.   It does make it a little difficult to come home when everyone back home (Utah) says that it is snowing again, but after a glorious 10 days we did decide to come back! :)

I Love Avocados!

This post brought to you by Avocados from Mexico. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love, love, love avocados… in salads, on sandwiches, with tomatoes, in guacamole and just about with anything!  So when I got the opportunity to write about avocados, I said count me in!


You can visit Avocados from Mexico and find all kinds of recipes and tips using avocados, there are also games for kids to play and videos to watch.  Be sure to check it out, it is a fun site to browse.  I have already checked out several of the recipes and pinned them!

Grandma and Grandpa Dates

Part of our granddaughter’s Christmas gift was to have a date with Grandma and go to the beauty salon! So last week we went to a local beauty school and each of the girls got their hair done and their fingernails painted!

It was so much fun and the girls loved it!

 I think that we might even have to do it again sometime! :)

Look at how darling that hair is!  Each one of them turned out sooo cute!

I’m in Love!…

This last weekend, my husband and I went up to our cabin, but we took a detour on the way up and went to Trader Joe’s.  I know that a lot of you are familiar with Trader Joe’s, but it is new to Utah and can I just say…

I am in LOVE!

 We stopped on the way up to our cabin and then we went back on our way home from the cabin!  That is how impressed I was.
