What the........craziness!?

I am so glad May is over and done with! It was a hectic month for us! Our two boys decided to both fracture their arms within one week of each other, we have been looking for jobs and it's taking F-O-R-E-V-E-R! I am trying not to complain, because we have much to be thankful for, but it's definitely been tough for us, these past few months. Not to mention our bills are definitely piling up...does anyone know of any giveaways going on where the prize includes paying your bills??? ;)
Our transition back to Utah was good, it's just been a little harder than we thought it would be. I think I have definitely learned a bit of humility and when I look at my Patriarchal blessing it reminds me that these small trials are nothing in comparison to some that I will face later life. Our kids are healthy and we are happy in our marriage it's just the financial part that is tough right now. I am glad to have come from a humble home, and that my parents taught us to value the most important things like our family. Were it not for these teachings I don't think I would be as calm as I have been throughout our challenges. I hope that as a mother I will strive to teach my kids to value what really matters and that money might make life easier, but it does NOT buy happiness. I am truly happy! I can honestly say that I love my life right now. All I need is my family and a little more faith. Things will get better as long as we continue to be positive, faithful and humble....THERE have been many blessings that I could have never expected to have. We are thankful for a loving Heavenly Father who is always there.
And one great thing that has been happening...a lot more PR!! Which means more GIVEAWAYS for all my friends and fam!! WOO HOO! Here is a preview.....of what I hope I will be giving away....great for moms and tweens alike.....

Especially cause Heavenly Father blesses those that stay humble!! I love you & your lil family so much!! Let me know if I can do anything ANYTHING at all to help!! Love ya'll,

  2. my friend, know that your struggles are our struggles too, it is hard not to feel down when the bills are scratching at your back.. maybe we should all move in together.. that would help both of us! lol

  3. Sometimes not having money can help a family to focus on core values and strengthen the family. And help kids to be grateful too. I'm sure that these things will pass for you. You have a beautiful family.


Thanks for Showin' some love!
