THANKYOU FATHERS - FATHERS DAY

I received a travel system from Agis in exchange for writing a review on the blog. The words and opinions are mine. #ad

Don't let that billboard, commercial, or movie make you think that our culture doesn't respect Fathers because after seeing the millions of Facebook posts honoring them, I know that our society needs and loves them more than ever.

WHAT IT'S LIKE TO BE PREGNANT

Here's a little note I wrote the other day. No free printable or crafty tip today, just a good solid rant about the joys of pregnancy.

"Dear Body,

I am officially past my first trimester. I've done my time. Can I have a little break now?

See, I understood at the beginning the aches in new places. I get the occasional aches and pains all throughout my abdomen. I mean, come on, there's a prune sized baby somewhere in there. I get it. And the soreness up top, have you forgotten I have other children who jump all over me all the time. "Oooouucccuch"

I understood the mood swings. I had had those before. Those weren't new. Like wanting to snuggle with my husband and then punch him in the face within the same minute. Yup, we both expected it. And if my husband ever forgot, don't worry, I was happy to remind him of the fact that I am making a HUMAN! And he quickly remembered. All is good there.

I am really excited to share an upcoming event that I will be co-hosting here in Provo, called Create in the Park. This is an event for anyone including families at one of my favorite parks, Bicentennial Park. If you have never been to this park let me tell you why it is my favorite. 

This park is built on an old farm, so it is huge! There is tons of grass and trees. There is a really nice playground along with a duck pond, bridge, and nature walk complete with board walk. I've included some photos below of the park. It really is a beautiful and magical place.

Growing up I always had cats. But over the years I forgot how to take care of a cat. So with our new cat, Gigi, Here are some tips I've learned in the last few months as I've been a cat owner.

My husband and I were organizing our carport and kept hearing this little meow. My husband has never been really fond of cats so he kept denying that he heard the meows. Finally I insisted that the kitty sounds were coming from under some boxes and we started moving them. In a window well under some boxes we found Gigi. When we took her to the vet they estimated she was around six weeks old. And since it was two weeks before Christmas we decided she was our early Christmas present.
