more showering

Jeanine, Dawnell, Holly and Rhonda threw a home ward shower this week.
It was so kind of them.
People are so wonderful.

It was fun to see everyone and chat the night away.

I am so thankful for all the wonderful women in my life who helped raise me
and taught me so many things in my life.

I am so blessed.

two years

I cannot believe it has been two years since this day.

I still remember it like it was yesterday
and at the same time, it feels like forever ago.

We've had our share of ups and downs
but through it all I am so glad we have had each other.

We've done so much and had so many adventures these past two years.
I can't wait to see what forever has in store!

Happy anniversary, dear.

the chair

I really wanted an old looking, beautiful heirloom rocking chair for the nursery.
I jumped the gun and bought a lame white one for $15 from KSL awhile ago.
I wasn't happy with it so I kept looking.

I looked into getting a new one but they just don't make them like they used to!
Nothing I found seemed like a piece that would last forever and someday rock our grand babies.

I finally found exactly what I wanted on KSL again!
We went out to look at it and bought it.
I was so excited about it!

I thought about getting it painted a fun color but after talking about it
we decided to stain it so it would be a classic color and last forever.

Ryan decided he wanted to do the work himself.
I was all about paying someone else to do it!

He spent so many hours and put in so much hard work!
I think he wanted to burn it most of the time...
It really took a long long time.
Mostly because Ryan is a perfectionist and wanted it done just right.

The end result, 
it is perfect!
I cannot wait to rock our little one to sleep in the chair that Ryan worked so hard on.

I hope someday our children will cherish this chair 
and remember us as the rock their own children in it.

baby love

Jen and Kristy threw me a friend shower on Saturday.
It was lovely!

They served all of my favorite things for lunch
including Plates and Palates, Ruby Snap and delicious pumpkin cake!

It was fun to chat with friends and spoil this baby a little more.

Thanks so much to Jen and Kristy,
it was such a fun day!

My sister threw me the cutest baby shower on Saturday!
Everything was so cute and perfect!

It was fun to see everyone and spend the day celebrating and spoiling our babe.

I can't wait to snuggle this little one!

We were planning on going to the cabin for a little babymoon the weekend of our anniversary
but with Ryan starting a new job and me being super pregnant by then
we decided to just take off and go this last weekend.

We left Friday afternoon and I took Monday off so we had a longer time.
It was so fun and relaxing.

We mostly just hung out at the cabin since it was a super cold weekend.
We went to Jackson Hole on Saturday and the weather was beautiful!
It was still cold but the sun was out which was lovely.

Next time we go to the cabin we'll be a party of three!
