currently

Mia is really into dressing herself these days... ha!When she saw this picture she said, "CUTE Mia!" Also, excuse the fuzzy photo, I need a new phone!
Loving: 2015! This year has been full of so many changes, all GOOD changes! Our move to Arizona has been smooth and good to us! We are expanding our family and giving Mia a baby brother! Huge, huge changes! Plus the little ones like Mia growing each day, visits with family, vacations, reaching goals and creating new ones, etc. We still have have our low moments and downer days, but it just feels good to see how our lives have changed and prayers have been answered this year!

Reading/Watching: I was so excited to finally do some reading on my little getaway with Eric... but wouldn't you know it, I completely spaced buying books or downloading them on my kindle. Major fail!
I'm still on a Hart of Dixie kick :) I've been wanting to play catch up and watch The Bachelorette on Hulu but I've heard this season is one of the worst. I mean, they are all crappy (ha ha), but I've heard she's a real piece of work. But exciting news for Eric and me... we finally went to our first movie since moving to Arizona! We took advantage of my parents being here and escaped to see the Avengers! The movies are such a treat to us now since they are so rare.... but sitting next to a mom who had her 3 year old boy sitting on her lap because she snuck in late was NOT a treat. How quiet do you think he was during that movie? Yeah...

Trying to: plan my last two trips to visit Utah before baby brother arrives! I've been a bit homesick for Utah in the sense that I miss our families, of course! and I really miss the beauty of the state! I need a fix of watching Mia with her grandparents and cousins, my favorite places to eat, the greenery and beautiful mountains!

Wishing: that Eric didn't work such long stretches of hours and days. I really try to keep things happy and positive around here but I gotta keep it real, and that means that I miss having Eric around. I suppose it doesn't help that I'm pregnant, tired and hormonal on top of his crazy work schedule :) I can't wait until he's "done his time" and doesn't have to work the crazy hours anymore. That being said, he's the hardest worker and takes such pride in providing for our family. I'm so grateful for him and everything he does for us!

Excited for: the visits we've had and will be having from family! My parents were here for a week (of course Eric and I were gone for most of that week) and my sister in law is coming this weekend! We love having visitors!! Who's next, friends and family?! ;)

Mia is so cute, I love that she dresses herself and things she looks sassy! You go GIRL!!!

Isn't Hart of Dixie wonderful? I LOVED it from the beginning and am so sad it was canceled. They had SUCH a great cast and the story lines were cute even though they were a bit crazy. How fantastic is Lemon?

I can understand missing your husband, it's never fun when they are gone for long stretches. Can't wait till he's done his time, too! I know you can't wait to have him back <3!

I hope that you guys get to be back in Utah soon for a visit...being homesick is no fun and it'll be nice to be around your family again for a bit. And of course be able to snap even more adorable photos of Mia in the meantime!! :)

I love Mia's fashion =) So cute.
Trips back home are so needed.
And a three year old at Avengers? Yeah, I'm sure that went well.

I suggest you binge watch The Bachelorette. It has been interesting this season, but I'm still addicted. I hate that homesick feeling. I get it from time to time, but it's nothing a good trip home can't fix. I hope you get back soon! In the meantime, the best quick fix for that feeling is having visitors. I'm trying to plan an Arizona trip because my sister lives there now!

Mia is a doll! My Eric juat started working a job where he is gone almost three days at a time so I feel you! Sometimes it is hard to stay positive especially being hormonal but hang in there momma!

Love Heart of Dixie, was so sad when last year was only half a season of episodes. Hopefully they're back full force in the fall!
