Cody’s First Father’s Day

Well hello!

Hope you all had a great Father’s Day weekend celebrating with those men in your life that are closest to you! We kept it pretty low key over here but had a great day nonetheless.

Cody has been wanting some photos for his new desk at work, so we framed a family photo for him and I printed off some other photos he could hang up. I also filled a mason jar with Reese’s Pieces with a little note attached that said, “I love you to pieces Daddy! Love, Hunter”. I saw it on Giselle’s blog and loved the idea.


After church, we headed up the canyon with some friends from our small group to grill up some lunch and celebrate Father’s Day together. It was such a beautiful day!


Hunter got a bunch of attention from the ladies so he was a happy little man. Winking smile


We headed home after a few hours and spent the rest of the day relaxing and just enjoying our time together as a family.


I’m so thankful to have a husband that is such an amazing father to our son. I can’t even explain how full my heart feels when I see the two of them together.


I love you Cody! I hope you had a wonderful Father’s Day.

What did you do for Father’s Day?

So Proud!

Howdy-ho! (Don’t know where that came from… Just go with it, mmmkay?)

The last couple nights Cody was in Denver, so I was home alone. I’m a big baby when it comes to being home alone. I don’t know what I’d do without our dogs to keep me company. While I do enjoy getting to eat whatever I want for dinner and doing whatever my little heart desires, I’d much rather have Cody home. He’s my favorite person ever and is always fun to have around. Ok, before I get too sappy here, let’s see what went down while he was away…

SUSHI! Well, kind of. It was a veggie roll… I really can’t wait to eat the raw stuff, but this did the trick to satisfy my craving for now. I stopped by Whole Foods the other night to pick some up for dinner, and it was fantastic.


The latest episode of The Bachelor was also watched. I feel like I’m the only one that really likes Lindsey? She annoyed me at first, but she’s grown on me. I like how she’s goofy, but has proven herself that she can be more serious too. I felt so bad for AshLee though. Man, she sure was head over heels!

We had some cookie baking going on up in here too!


Cody’s all-time favorite “dessert” are traditional homemade chewy chocolate chip cookies. I usually use another recipe, but decided to try a new one since Kristen has talked it up so much. She was right, this recipe is a winner for sure! I made the cookies for Cody as a “Congratulations!” surprise when he got home…


…along with this little sign, because HE GOT THE JOB! I am so stinkin’ proud of him.


I haven’t talked about it too much, but he’s been doing multiple interviews with three different companies the last couple months – two were in Arizona and one is here in Utah. One in Arizona rejected him (psshhh, they don’t know what they’re missing!), the one here in Utah offered him the job, and we’re still waiting to hear from the other one in Arizona. Sooo, our life is still kinda in limbo at the moment, but I’m just so happy to know he has a job he wanted lined up. A huge weight is off my shoulders, that’s for sure. God is good!

He called me Thursday morning while he was out of town to tell me the news, so I couldn’t wait to greet him with a plate full of cookies and a huge hug and kiss last night!

Needless to say, we have some celebrating to do this weekend! Have a great one!
