My husband played basketball for BYU and saw me from across the court at one of the games. He came over to me after the game and got my number. He was the nicest, sweetest guy I had ever met. The rest is history!
My life has changed dramatically since having Capri. I used to do exactly what I wanted when I wanted and now everything I do I think of Capri first. She is a wonderful baby and she has made our lives so happy.
I love spending every second with Capri. She has the sweetest personality, I love everything about her and being a mom and I could not imagine my life without her.
I was VERY pregnant in the summer so I always wore dresses. I found that they kept me the coolest. I loved Maxi dresses and wrap dresses. My favorite maternity dress was from Isabella Oliver. It fit perfect and was super comfy.
The best advice I received was to take care of myself, workout, eat right, and get ready even when I didn’t want to. I got less sleep due to these things, but it made me feel better about myself overall. It made me really think that taking those steps everyday helped me feel good about my changing body and appearance.
Babies change so fast. Everyday they are learning and doing something new. Watching them explore and discover their world is a miracle. Everyday is a new adventure. That is the most fun part of having a baby.
I have always loved classy, simple yet functional pieces that can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

I blog when Capri is napping or after she goes to sleep at night. She’s my best little friend and loves to be in pictures with me. Especially if it includes doing something outdoors!
I have loved blogging because it allows me to share fun parts of my life with others. Also, I think as moms we often get so caught up in errands and checklists that we forget we need to have an outlet where we can just do what we love. For me, my outlets are my blog and running!
Thanks so much for having me!!
