Looks good

While in Logan we were able to stop by Ryan's old office and we were so excited to see his new signage! Yep you can see for yourself that is our old company that we started up and designed our logo! It was so cool to see that cool logo again!

Brothers

As soon as we got to the cemetery Hunter walked right over to Hudson's grave and sat right down! As people arrived he was so quick to tell them whose grave he was sitting on! As cousins showed up he quickly ran over to them and said, "come over and see where Hudson is." As a mother of a child who lived for such a short time I had a flood of emotions I was pleased to see how Hunter was so loving at the grave and I loved how aware he was of his brother whom he had never met. I was then filled with so much gratitude for Hunter and for the little boy that he is! I feel so blessed every day to have him and I know I am one lucky mom! This is a picture of Hunter and his sweet little cousin Mackenzie sitting on the headstone!

You are loved

We received one of those 12:30 at night phone calls that no one likes to ever get and we found out that Ryan's Aunt Rhonda passed away suddenly earlier that night (7-21-2011)! I am so sad to think that we will no longer get to see her! Selfish I know especially when we as Latter Day Saint members know that death is just another part of life. I know she is in a better place but man she will be missed. My heart aches just thinking of her children that still have a lifetime to live without her around! I am so grateful for our dear Colby (Elder Pomeroy) who decided to stay in the mission field to fulfill a promise he made to his mother before he ever left on his mission! I am so grateful that Ryan and I were able to go to Rhonda's Funeral and see all of our family! What a wonderful and kind woman she was and I pray only wonderful things for her children's future! I know that Ryan feels very blessed to have been able to be the one to bless her grave and I am grateful that we know she is in a better place!

We miss you Rhonda


You will forever be missed Rhonda! My heart aches for the children and the loved ones that you left behind! Thank you so much for always being so kind to our family! You were a huge part of my husbands life growing up and I feel so blessed that you included me in the family from day one when you met me! We miss you!

Guess who's 4

I myself have had a hard time with the fact that my sweet little hunter turned 4! Funny fact is I came home from girl camp talking about the girls that Hunter will one day date! Will he choose the brats? Will he choose the loners? Will he choose the sweet and helpful girls??? So many thoughts after this years camp I could not help it and this is what Ryan said, "Well honey I am glad you are thinking about this now because the dating years are right around the corner?" LOL he had to tease me for being so silly! Glad you had such a great bday little dude!



He had more fun decorating that I expected :)

Shed is up

Our neighbor and friend sold us this shed for a GREAT price! All we had to do was take it apart, walk it across our street and build it in our back yard. Easy enough right? Well maybe but at least the process was a fun one!

LDS Sentinel

It was kinda fun this past week to be called and interviewed for this local online Sentinel. Here is the portion that chatted about me! Kinda fun!


Ari Anna Johnson, also in the Spokane Stake but no relation to Kristin, laughs at the idea of paying money for something.

"The only thing in my house I have spent money on is my furniture set," AriAnna said. "Everything is either handmade or a free find that I've redone."

Most of those "free finds" are abandoned items that she's picked up off the side of the road. Once she finds a piece, she'll bring it home to her small workshop and start giving it a new life. Old windows and crates are turned into coffee tables; rusted out benches are scraped clean and given a fresh coat of paint and discarded cupboards are sanded and painted until they become a child's play kitchen. The items that she doesn't keep are bartered or sold though her small business, Character Corner Creations, a process that has saved AriAnna thousands of dollars over the years.

"[Upcycling has] really helped me, because I'm self-reliant," AriAnna says. Then, with a laugh she adds, "And at the same time, if my house burned down, most of it was free anyway."


Ready to get in on the upcycling trend?

Start by looking around your house. A can of paint can do wonders in changing the look and feel of even the dowdiest of objects. Check thrift stores, estate sales, craigslist, and the ubiquitous "side of the road" for other great finds. And don't worry if you don't know how to fix something up. There are tutorials online that can take you step by step through whatever you want to learn. And keep in mind a final thought from AriAnna Johnson: "If you see potential in it, don't pass it up...If you can spray paint it or redo it to match with your d├ęcor, you'll basically be in love with it."

One lucky mom

There are just so many things I love about Hunter but one of my most favorites is his smile to go along with his funny personality. This shows you a peak into that personality :)
