I have a bit of news to share.

First, and most exciting, my sweet sister Amanda and her husband Ryan (see them in my right sidebar?), have FINALLY adopted a sweet, beautiful baby girl!  We are beyond thrilled for them!  She came into their family quite miraculously and we couldn’t be more grateful for her miraculous life.  Truly miraculous, as her birth was rough.  Anyway, I just wanted to share!  I hope they will be blessed with more children in the future but for now we are all just enamored with their darling girl!

Second, I am throwing a baby shower for her in a few weeks!  I’ve been furiously working on the decorations and food ideas.  I am excited to be able to show you all.  Here is a little sneak peek of the theme and color scheme I have chosen:princess shower cupcake toppers copy

Third, I have created a printable version of my Oh BOY Banner for the Little Man Baby Shower.  So many people wanted to buy the banner and I just don’t have time to make them so I thought this would be the next best thing.  If you are on Pinterest, I would love for you to pin this picture for me and say that it is a printable party banner.  THANKS!!!


And last, but not least, we are moving!  We are leaving our beautiful little home in Las Vegas and moving to Highland, Utah at the beginning of August.  I, of course, have a lot of mixed feelings.  I am excited for a new adventure and a more spacious house, but sad to leave my home where I’ve raised my family and sad to leave friends and family.  I have always lived in Las Vegas, except one year at BYU in Provo, Utah, so I am scared to leave but also excited to try something new.  Needless to say, I am swamped with trying to pack and ready my home for our renters, not to mention regular life.  So, don’t count on a lot of blog posts from me for the next few months. 

Hope you all are doing great and looking forward to summer!  We are counting down!
