I love decorating. What I love even more… party decorating. The idea of taking a theme and going all out on decor makes my heart happy. I’ve only thrown a few parties (more like bridal/baby showers), but I didn’t skip a beat when it came to nailing the theme. It also helps that I make almost everything and even digitally design all the paper products from the invitations down to the food labels. Continue reading
And I’m no exception to it. They say it goes by way too fast and you really don’t know what it means until it happens. What they mean is that once one milestone happens, then they all start coming one right after the other. Which is totally fine, if I were ready for my baby to start growing up. Continue reading
I remember growing up as a kid, we always had a ton of books. We used to read them all the time and it was something I tried to carry on, but haven’t really succeeded at. So I knew when it was time for me to have kids, I wanted them to have a love for books. Continue reading
Becoming a parent is a huge step into adulthood. You know you need to take care of this child you just brought into the world and you’ve googled every “MUST NEED” list for babies out there. You’re so overwhelmed, you don’t know what to buy, what works, what doesn’t work. You’ve got friends who said there’s a product that saved their life with their baby. But you never know until you buy all the things and try all the things. Continue reading
If you ever thought you had the most bountiful amount of patience… Have a baby. They will test it beyond belief without even knowing it. They also test your sanity (which I believe goes hand in hand with patience). They make you question everything you do and didn’t do. Continue reading
Giving birth to a baby is a monumental moment. Giving birth to a baby girl is even more momentous. You start digging deep and searching for all those morals and beliefs that you want to instill in your little one. You want to let her know that she is beautiful, strong and fierce. Continue reading
To say fourth months was rough would be an understatement. Never again in my life will I say babies have it easy. The amount of mental developments going on inside their little brains make so much sense now as to why they’re fussy or moody. Continue reading
…then comes marriage. Wait, that’s not how it goes. Whoops?
We all have a timeline plan of our lives set out for the big stuff (i.e. marriage, kids, job, etc.), whether we want to admit it or not. We want to have that adult career, then find our soulmate, marry them and Continue reading
If you know my hunting past, you know that I have never had mule deer tag soup. Every hunt that I have gone on, I have harvested an animal, whether it was a buck or a doe. Okay, so the does were when I had a junior tag. Proud to say I’ve shot all bucks since then!
And I wasn’t going to let this hunt stop that streak. After not having shot anything since 2013 when I shot my first antelope, I was itching to feel that uncontrollable joy of harvesting an animal. I didn’t care if it was a trophy 4×4 or dinky forked horn, I was going to get something. I even packed my lucky beanie that I wore 15 years ago on my first hunt ever. I was determined.

If you read my post on my bull elk hunt last year (here), you’d know that me and elk have a love/hate relationship; as in I love to hunt them and they hate to let me shoot one. This year, my dad and I both got cow elk depredation tags. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically a tag handed out to control the elk population more than what a normal hunting season does.
I was stoked to get this tag. My 4th elk tag in 9 years and I was going to finally be successful! I’ll just tell you right now, that it wasn’t the case. Elk: 4 – Me: 0. Continue reading
