Small and Simple Things

So nothing really very interesting has been going on around here. Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing.

The weather is really starting to heat up and for the first time I'm really not enjoying it. Somehow it feels hotter this year than last year when I was fat...I mean pregnant. Go figure.

A few weeks ago our Relief Society had an Expo for Enrichment. Ladies did demonstrations on wrapping gifts, bridal and baby showers, weddings, family reunions, etc. Since I have a degree in Special Events Management, it only seems fitting that I was bring the berry salad. It was beautiful if I do so say myself :)

We've really been upping our marketing for House Hunters, which has been somewhat productive, but not nearly as great as we were hoping. We've lost quite a few clients, just do to the market, so for every new client we get it seems to just fill in the gap as opposed to making the magazine any larger. Of the 3 that are in the area, ours is the smallest which can be a little discouraging. I've really enjoyed working with it and creating the magazine each month. I've definitely grown in my desktop publishing skills and have even gotten a little savvy with Photoshop.

Braelynn is just growing so much everyday and constantly keeps us smiling. She is into everything and LOVES to climb on the furniture and do laps around the coffee table. Her favorite toys at the moment are the vertical blinds, wooden nesting rings, and any body part she can pull on. Above all she loves to just be with people. She will sit and stare at you until you acknowledge her and then she just beams.

We've tried bananas, carrots, sweet potatoes, peas, and applesauce. While she mildly enjoys those, she screams for ice cream! Relax...we've only given her a lick or 2 but it's enough for her to know she likes it!

While things are pretty low key right now we definitely have some fun adventures coming our way. Hawley Lake for a long weekend, Amy's wedding and Burton Family Fun for the week after, San Diego for a week, and a few friends are having babies in the midst of all that! We are looking forward to all of it!
