I have grown up in a family full of seamstresses, and I decided that I wanted to learn how. My mom rarely has time to teach me, but she is more than willing. I started by making a blanket for Dallin last Christmas out of his receiving blankets that he used when he was little. It turned out okay and I totally winged it. I didnt even pin the stupid thing. But with a little help from my mom and a ton of encouragement from Drew, I have become a lot better and I have taken a class with my mom that has helped me. Not much but some. A few weeks ago my sweet Aunt Chris taught me how to make a baby blanket and I have been making them like crazy. I even taught my friend Kelly and we sold a few of them at a boutique. Anyway, my new adventure is a pair of pj pants for Drew and my brother for his birthday. I have got the pattern cut out and I am working on them and I will post pictures of the projects I have done and the one I am currently doing. Hopefully you will see the same improvement that I can see in myself. I dont pat myself on the back too often, but I think I deserve this one.
Okay so I have been watching Jaxson since he was about 7 months old and it has been so much fun. He and Dallin have become more like brothers than cousins. I have loved spending almost everyday with my Dallin and my Jaxson. However, two boys around the age of two are more than entertaining and stressful. So Dallin is totally obsessed with bikes and trucks, so that is how he spends his day. Dallin has a personality much like his Daddy and he is learning to cause a little trouble along with his cousin. Dallin loves to throw and pretend hit, which just boggles my mind, why would a twenty-month old like to hit? Go figure. He loves his Jaxson so much and I know that having him around has made Dallin so happy. Jaxson on the other hand is so full of "piss and vinegar" as grandma Kathy would say. His new favorite thing to say to Aunt Brit is "NO" and oh how I love that. He is no dummy and he knows what to say to anger me to the point of laughing so hard I can hardly stand it. These two boys are so much fun, and challenging at times, but I would not trade having them in my life for anything. They continue to amaze me all the time and they are learning so many new things. I love you boys!!!!!!!!

Okay so some of you may think I am a total sap, but I love, love , love my friends and I treasure them. So I chose to post a blog about my best friend Brittany Lamb. She is the best! I have known her for about 4 years and she is just one of those people that you meet and love. She would do anything in the world for me and my family and I love her like a sister. She is such a good mother, wife and she is one of the hardest workers I have ever known. I call her just to talk about nothing, and I love to hear what she has to say! So for those of you that read this, why don't you post something nice about someone you love! Love you Brit!!!!! P.S. I love all of my friends!!!!!!!
Hey fellow bloggers, I am the happiest person alive! Why? You ask. Well let me tell you about myself. I am married to Drew, the most amazing man alive and I have a 22 month old son named Dallin, whom I love with all my heart. We just purchased a home and we are in the process of making it ours. I love love love my life.
