My niece Kiera was so excited to go with us to pick up my nephew from school!



We enjoyed a delicious Shrimp boil and fish fry on Friday night!



My dad celebrated his birthday a week ago, so my niece made him this awesome fisherman’s trifle cake!

They had a beautiful display of pictures, and letters written from my grandpa to my gramma during the war-how sweet is that!

I participated in show choir in high school, Vintage! It was a competitive singing and dancing group that put on a final performance at the end of the year. They celebrated the 40th year anniversary of Vintage so we all went back to Celebrate!

Sunday we went to church as a family and then enjoyed a day in the yard playing, napping, enjoying family time!


The kids played “pirate” in my dad’s fishing boat!



Nate and I were happy we got a free upgrade into a dodge journey, and so were the kids! They could ride with auntie Kendra and uncle Nate!



We went over to my brothers to enjoy a campfire, smore’s and guitar songs!

It always happens…. when you are around the people you love doing what you love… goes by waaaay to fast! We had such a fun weekend with my entire family back home and it’s always hard to go back. I cherish the moments withe my nieces and nephews of them wanting to ride with us, snuggle with us, and play with us….I have a feeling in 10 years they won’t want to snuggle with me as much as they do now!

Hope you all have a great day!

❤ God Bless


Up in the air we go!!


Well, I couldn’t be more excited, I am off work, at the airport and on my way home!!!! I love trips home when I get to see family, and family time is the only thing on the agenda for the weekend. Nate and I were talking the other night about going home and I think for me its more than just seeing family, its all the nostalgia of being home.

– My parents have lived in the same house since I was born. There is something about pulling up in the driveway and opening the back door and being welcomed with open arms.
– The house smell when I walk through the door
– Going up to my old room and seeing all my pictures and things from when I was a kid.
-I just love driving through my hometown! It is such a restored, historic beautiful place
-ooo..and my favorite….all the lakes!! They just look so refreshing and bring back many memories of spending countless hours on the lake!
-And not only the lakes but the trees! They are so large and mature and in the spring, lush and green! (I’m used to Denver where most of the trees have been planted in the last 10 years)
– I love walking down my street. Its where I learned to ride my bike!
-My neighbors house, although they don’t live there anymore, I am taken back to the countless hours I spent in their backyard.
– Going to my home church on Sunday! Its where I was baptized, confirmed and married. Its where I began to have a relationship with Jesus.

What’s your favorite part about going home, besides seeing family?

And I had to share this….they are filming a Southwest Airline commercial a couple gates away from us, how cool is that!!!




I got to hear them say “action” before walking on the escalator!! I hope I see this on TV sometime!

Have you ever seen something taped live in a place your weren’t expecting it?

Have a great night, I’ll check back in soon!!
