To the Weekend!

Happy Friday my friends! I'm busy getting all my orders done for next week and prepping for our super short but always sweet trip to California. We've also been spending any free time we have catching up with old friends visiting from Philly- which makes me miss them even more than I did before. So this weekend is busy and crazy but also absolutely wonderful. I hope your weekend is too!

Happy Monday!

For the first time in a loooooong time, I got a good night's rest last night. It was amazing! And then I woke up this morning to see that the sun was out and shining! I love where we live and the snow is beautiful- but there's just something about seeing the sun after a lot of snowy days that just invigorates the body. So today is my ode to spring and summer. Lots of sunny, bright, and cheerful photos to greet your Monday!

Mountain Living

 Here's what life around the cabin has looked like as of late...

We've been getting TONS of snow. It's not shown in this picture- but the snow now reaches the bottom of that first window on the left...

Icicles out my office window...

Out for a drive...

We got a visit from one of our friends...

Dropped the hubs off at work a few days...

Hung out with some chickens...

And got some fresh eggs as well...

Drove in a snow storm...

 Brought in lots of wood to the house...

So I could stay warm during all this snowy weather...

Battling Pregnancy Side Effects and Listening to New Music

So... ya I haven't been blogging again. Pregnancy has just had an affect on me that I didn't predict. I totally thought that I was going to rock it like Brooklyn Decker in What to Expect When You're Expecting- but truthfully, I've been more like Elizabeth Bank's character. The side effects that come with pregnancy are not a choice- and they're different for everyone. Obviously how I react to them is a choice, but wow- they've just really taken the energy out of me. I felt terribly nauseous through most of the first trimester. And while thankfully that's gone- I don't sleep a lot anymore, I find myself getting super hot and lightheaded out of nowhere, I've been getting painful toothaches off and on that apparently aren't toothaches but have to do with my weakened gums due to pregnancy and built up sinus pressure- and the wonderful heart burn that's been paying me a visit each night has just been oodles of fun as well.

But the experience of feeling my baby girl move around and kick is just purely awesome! And totally worth any difficult situation I find myself in. I can't wait until Danny can start to feel her too. The Lord has been so kind to bring me such amazing joy each and every day as I read about how her body is developing and the changes that are happening within me. I cannot wait to hold this little gift in my arms.

So- all that to say- I'm here again. I can't promise how frequent it will be. And maybe even no- one reads this anymore, but I thought I'd share one of my favorite songs at the moment. It's from a band called Miner. A husband & wife head up the group with family members making up the rest of the band. I just pre-ordered their album today- I lurv them! And with all this snow, wind, slush, and cold- it's a great reminder that summer will be here before I know it- and I'll be blasting music like this while I hang out with my baby girl in the beautiful Wyoming sunshine. I can't wait...

Mountain Living

Here's what mountain living has looked like as of late...

We've been getting some beautiful sunsets!

Took a short day trip to Idaho Falls and Mavi enjoyed took advantage of the sunshine out the window...

The hubs knocked down some of the massive icicles hanging off our cabin

I've been making lots of fires to stay warm...

Danny and I have been trying to schedule at least a half day each week to hang out. Here we went cross country skiing below the Tetons... it was amazing

He obviously has no sense of humor
