Our First Advertisement

Here's Tony and I's first attempt at advertising. We still have a lot to learn but I thought we did well for our first time.

Mr. Brown

Just wanted to let y'all know that I love this guy...

Thursday, May 6, 2010


Yesterday I woke up and exercised with my wonderful husband. After my shower I went to the closet. As I sifted through my closet I had this desire to be beautiful that day. Instead of my typical t-shirt and jeans, I picked out a new outfit my mother-in-law had bought me. I put it on and then went to the bathroom. I put make-up on for the first time all week. Then, I heard from the other room...

"There's a new Mormon Message."

I went to our little living room. I stood there and watched the video "My New Life."

As soon as it was over I hurried to the bathroom again so that my husband wouldn't see my tears. I thought of Stephanie's story and felt sad. Sad that I have ever seen myself as NOT beautiful. Sad that I often take my life for granted.

I thought of my husband who always tells me
I'm beautiful...
I'm gorgeous...
I'm lovely...
I'm pretty...

What a wonderful man! He always sees what I sometimes can't. He has always seen me as my Heavenly Father sees me. He loves me with such a perfect love.

Today I went to Stephanie's blog. I read a few of her posts and was inspired by the joy she finds in the little things. She's not perfect. I'm not either. We have our bad days. We can't always be full of smiles and laughter, but when we remember the Savior and what he has done for us...when we exercise faith in Him, we can overcome all things. We can overcome those bad days.

I watched her video again today, too.

And cried again.

Then watched it again.

And cried again.

I came to this one conclusion.

I am the luckiest girl ever! I am a daughter of God!

Flat Iron

A couple of weeks ago we had a cool weekend ahead of us and we both felt like we needed a good workout we decided to go hike Flat Iron, up in the Superstition Mountains. We packed up our packs, complete with food, water, sleeping bags, a tent, and a rope (just in case).

Three hours up and three hours down. 2,800 feet up in 2.8 miles.


My favorite things about this picture? My fly-away hair and the "Don't pick the wildflowers. $500 fine." sign in the background.

Draw a line straight up from Tony's funny face and circle the very tippy top of that tippity top mountain. That's where we hiked to.

This blue exclamation point marked where we took off our packs, climbed straight up sheer rock and then reeled our packs up behind us using the handy dandy rope I thought to bring.

We made it to the top just in time to catch the sunset.
