Showing off our home turf

Random story real quick. Today, I walked into my house from grocery shopping and all the sudden I felt a tiny tickle on my left side. Not a big deal, but right after the tickle I felt a poke. So naturally I screamed bloody murder assuming there was a bug of some sort on me that I couldn’t see. I ripped off my shirt, threw it on the ground, and ran to the mirror. Nothing. Huh. Strange. I walked slowly back to my shirt, picked it up by arms length and inspected it. That pesky little tag was just sitting there, mocking me. Must have forgot to take that one off. Crisis adverted.

Okay, now for the real blog post. My Mom and sister, Steph, came to visit us in Ohio! It was SO fun! We were so happy they came. We tried to pack as much Ohio fun is as we could, which included lots of good food, hiking, and games.

New Girls to Meet & Old Friends to Greet

Can I get a “Woot! Woot!”? Woot for me finally posting my favorite pictures from my trip to Utah in April! Had such a great week! I got to meet, snuggle, and kiss my two new nieces, Mila and Molly! And I also got to have an awesome dinner with some of my favorite friends! It had been three years since I’d last seen Ashley, so fun to meet her new baby girl, Brinly, and also re-meet big girl Brooklyn! Also, hadn’t seen Allie for more than three years and it’d been about a year since I last saw Kar. Such an awesome night! Really made me miss and appreciate all the wonderful times I had with those girls. Love them tons!
