The 3 Best Ways to Backup Photos and Videos

The 3 Best Ways

For my husband’s academy graduation I rented the beautiful Canon 135L lens to capture the special occasion. I took tons of photos, maybe around a hundred. I can’t tell you the exact amount because I lost all of them after my daughter knocked over my laptop of seven years, and it was not worth the […]

While unpacking one of the last boxes in my home I came across my journal from college. It is one of my most precious possessions because it chronicles the time I started at BYU, met and married my husband, and our first year of wedded bliss. I’ve saved old ticket stubs, cards, photos, and other […]

The secret to how I ‘do it all’

Balancing it all as a mom: The truth about 'doing it all' and how one mom learned to to juggle instead of balance.

Sometimes people ask me how I do it all. From their end it looks like I work, sew, go to the gym, take pictures, and blog. But the truth is, it’s not like you think. It’s not a balancing act, it’s more like a juggling act, and at any time I can pick three balls […]

How to kill fruit flies freeze frame

I’ve got a random tutorial and fun video to share today, in case someone else out there happens to get terrorized by the tiny pests known as fruit flies. A few weeks ago I had them swarming in my house and not a clue where they came from. I mean obviously they’re attracted to fruit, but […]

Sharing my breastfeeding photos + Giveaway

Breastfeeding moms come in all shapes and sizes. One mom's story of her breastfeeding story shared on World Breastfeeding Week.

I feel like I’ve blogged a lot over the years about how my breastfeeding journey came to be. At first I only hoped to breastfeed to save the money I’d spend on formula for cute dresses for my daughter. My goal for a few months turned into a six-month goal, and eventually, I knew I […]

10 awesome facts you should know about my daughter

10 awesome facts you should know about my daughter: A cute journal entry and prompt for parents.

My son is a cutie pie and my daughter is the sweetheart. She is a talkative little thing (seriously, she never stops unless she’s unconscious), but I know she gets it from me.

It’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks (or learn how to twerk)

breakdance-move

I was watching Bachlorette with some girlfriends, and it must have been the episode where the guys do a little striptease for Andi because somehow we got on the topic of pole dancing. Leah was all “Oh, you’ve gotta see this video of this chick pole dancing, she’s amazing!” Then we huddled around her cell […]

I’m turning into the woman I once found annoying

I hope I don’t bore you to tears with what I’m about to say. Trust me, before last week I was in the same boat. Whenever one of my friends started going on about dieting, or counting calories I’d put on my enthusiastic face when really I’d be thinking about what kind of delicious snack […]
