Relaxed and Recovering


I hope everyone had the most fabulous Christmas ever.  I enjoyed ever last second of ours.....all the way up to midnight.  I took hardly any pictures but a ton of video so I will have to share one of those.  Pictures didn't catch Hanes' reactions and what he said about everything so I had to do video instead.  I am just as giddy again this morning because I know how excited he is to play with all of his toys and remember everything that he was given.  Anyway, I hope you all had a fabulous day and get to relax a little and recover from the busy holiday. 

P.S. I normally don't do this but I have to brag for a minute about my cute dad.  He is the sweetest man ever and someone I look up to more than anything.  He is a professor for marriage and family and has been a marriage councilor my entire life.  He is amazing at what he does and I know so many people that look up to him.  One of my favorite things to do is attend his conferences or pretty much anything where he is speaking or involved because he is amazing.  I wanted to share with you married couples out there a huge event that will be happening on February 7th that he will be speaking at and is a big part of.  It's the Northern Utah Marriage Celebration with strongermarriage.org.  Brod and I like to attend these when we can because I feel like they help us in our marriage and remind us of the little things that are so important that are easy to forget.  Make sure you check out the website and the event and if you would like you buy tickets for cheaper right now.  Anyways, I know it's a little random but it's something that is close to my heart and I think a lot of you may enjoy so check it out!

  5. Cara, that is so sweet that you look up to your dad like that. My parents have been married for 28 years and they're such an example in my life. I'll be getting married next year and living with my parents and seeing how they treat each other is life school for me. ps: Your outfit is super cute and cool!

  11. Love your bag, especially with the initials!!
    & maybe it is a bit random, the little piece about your dad, but I find it very sweet towards him and to married couples! If he can only 'help' or remind them some things when they are going trough a hard time, that's a big deal! So in An indirect way you also helped (at least) one couple :) xx

  13. Thank you for sharing your sentiments about your Dad and especially about his profession,especially being that what he teaches is so very important considering the time in which we live, and the moral issues at the forefront in the State of Utah today.
