Well...it's been a while since I updated this thing. I haven't had access to the internet for a while so here's just a quick update on my thoughts, what we've been doing, and all that stuff:)
First off, for a while now I've been trying to be balanced with things in my life and I've tried to make sure I spend time doing good, uplifting things. One thing that I've been really trying to do is spend some good quality time with Brielle. I am with her every day and we play a lot but there were days when I was feeling like I just didn't spend enough QUALITY time with her.
So, I decided to make sure to put everything away...phone, movies, internet...etc...and just PLAY.
Remember when you were a kid and just played! With your imagination? No phones, or movies?
Well, for at least 20 mins each day we make sure to just play. This has been the best BEST part of my day everytime I just put the world on silent and just be. We have so much fun! Sometimes all we do is walk around holding hands for hours..but I can honestly say it's been awesome.
So my challenge to y'all with kiddos is...BE WITH YOUR KIDS!
I know the world can be distracting and there is obviously things we have to do but take some time and just be with your kids. Get to know them..I know Brielle is only little but I feel like we are so bonded already and she's honestly one of my favorite friends. I love her so much.
Next, John. He's just awesome and I just wanted to throw a shout out to his awesomeness.
He works so hard for us and I am so lucky to have an awesome guy.
Also... last but not least this last weekend we went to Salt Lake and just spent some time at the Gateway Mall with my sister, Rachel, and walked around and shopped. Then we went to dinner with John's cousins at BUCCA DI BEPPO. If you haven't ever been...GO! So yum!
Oh...and the weather has been SOOO awesome lately that we have gone on like a million walks....
My neighbor and I are great friends and we like to go together. She's in the last pic.:)
We are going to St. George for John's spring break this week and are REALLY excited!
