It has been a long time since I have posted.  My post will be short and sweet.  I was contacted a couple weeks ago to by a Real Estate office and they asked me if I would be interested in creating a design board for the upcoming Holiday season.  The color scheme, decor choice, and style were completely up to me.  So this is what I have come up with!

Honeycomb Octagon Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer Decal - Vinyl Wall Art, Graphics, Stickers

When do you do your best work? 
 This time it happened for me about 11:00 PM!
Yep, it was after the kids were snuggled up in their beds and fast asleep. 
The house was quite and lately that seems to be when my mind starts getting crafty and creative. 
I had this vision in my head and once I had it designed and applied on the mixer it was even
Better Than I Had Envisioned! 

I was so excited, I thought about a happy squeal, Scream, or Dance but opted not to since it was so late.

Retirement Gift Subway Style

As most of you know I work a part-time job at a Juvenile Justice Center.  
This is where adolescent kids 
go to Court, meet with Probation Officers, and also serve time in Detention. 

I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason
and also that certain people enter your life for a reason.
Many times when a new adventure begins you don't have any idea why things happen the way they do or even why they are happening.

This theory is very true for me and how I ended up with this job.

Last week I attended a Retirement Luncheon for our Court Deputy, Terry.
It was a hard and very emotional day for me.

Why, you ask?

I am not a huge fan of change!
(But there are many others reasons to, keep reading.)

Despite my saddness and to show my support and also to give him a gift that I hope he enjoys  I attended the luncheon.  
Also I wanted him know how much he means to me so I made this...

Terry worked for the County for 22 1/2 years.
And if my memory is correct for the Juvenile Justice Center for approx. 11 years.

He was our escort when we would go and make our home visits to the kids that were on Probation. 
I always felt safe whenever I was with him.  I knew that I was his first priority.
It was with him that we put people in the County Jail, we stopped and arrested people that shouldn't be driving, we responded to accidents at high rates of speed, and it was with him that I first encountered an emotional break-down when I discovered that things happen that are out of our hands.  Things happen that we don't like, but sometimes you have to do what is right, even when you have to remove kids from their homes and families when the living conditions are not healthy or appropriate.  It was on this very night that when things were all said and done and the smoke had cleared, he gave me a hug and let me cry for awhile when nobody would see.
(Because, in this job, we are not seen as real humans with real feelings or emotions.)

I'm not saying that we didn't have some Wild and Crazy times, but they were always a lot of fun.
Which for the most part we can laugh at look back wih fond memories.
Whenever I tell stories about this job, Terry is in almost ALL of them.

He also holds a special place in my heart because after my Dad passed away, Terry stepped up to the plate.  Every morning when I got to the office he would ask me how I was doing.  
My response varied every time.  
One morning in particular I couldn't even answer that simple question.  
But, he didn't turn and leave me alone, 
he simply offered his shoulder yet again and I shed some more tears. 
He simply understood.

Thank you Terry for all you have done, work related and otherwise.
I wish you the best and I hope that retired life treats you well.
You will me missed by me for many reasons and I will always consider you a great Deputy and my Friend!

Thank You!

Our Family Takes a Utah Vacation

 If you noticed from my previous post I mentioned that my family recently went on a 
It was only for a weekend and we didn't go far, but it was just what we needed.

"The Hubby" had been working some very long days so it seemed like we hadn't really seen him leading up to the time when we left.  Also for those that don't know our family has been super sick this winter.  
We put pens to paper and realized that we spent as much money when we had "Baby Girly #2" as we spent on Dr. visits!!!  
(Ugh...That wasn't a sad realization for us!) 
In fact our "Oldest Girly" had her Tonsils and Adnoiods out and Tubes put in her ears this winter.
Which has made a huge difference for her.
(So grateful for modern medicine & practices.)

I'm sure you are all dying to know where we went and for those of you that hadn't either talked to me, went with me, or I was lucky enough to meet up, we went to...

Salt Lake City UT

Our first stop was Hogle Zoo.

My In-Laws meet up with us at the zoo and vacaid with us. 
It was lots of to share that time with them.
The weather was perfect and "The Girlies" loved it!
The weather was great, it wasn't super busy,
and we even got to see a baby elephant, giraffe, and lots of little monkeys.

After the Zoo we went to The Cheesecake Factory.  
It was the first time for any of us to eat at a Cheesecake Factory, all I can say was 
It was to to die for good!  
I highly recommend it if you haven't eaten there and if you have go again for us!

From there we had to stop at BUILD A BEAR
"Girly #1" got a Kitty (Sparkles) & "Baby Girly" got a Bear (Bubbles)
They loaded up with Clothes, Shoes, Ipod, and Stollers for each one, 
oh and they also got to pick a smell so each of them smell like strawberries.  
At first I thought yuck, but it smells so Yummy!

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in West Valley UT

It had an awesome water park called Grins & Finns.
"Baby Girly" enjoyed time on the slide and "Girly #1" made some new friends.

They also test drove a car while shopping at the mall ~ Ha!!!

We also were able to visit with some friends of ours from way back, it is always like things never change between us.  In fact she knows more about me than anybody and she still talks to me.  
Isn't that what true friends are for?!?
The Hubby teases me and says that we are only complete when we are together.  But when we are together, Watchout...cuz you two are trouble!!  
I will forever be grateful for our friendship! 
I only wish we were closer. 

We also shopped at Cabelas
(if you know "The Hubby" and my Father In-Law you know why that was a must.)
IKEA, Tai Pan Trading, and the Outlet Stores in Lehi UT.

Like I mentioned it wasn't a huge trip or a bank breaker.
It was a nice, simple, easy getaway with my family. 
We didn't have to worry about work or the stresses of everyday life.

I hope that we can make this at least a yearly experience, because sometimes you just need to get away!!!

Hope you enjoy time with your family this weekend!

Where Did We Go?

My little family took a Vaca with my in-laws this weekend.

It was so nice to get away and The Girls Loved It!!

Can you guess where we went???

I have a TON of photos to share and I will in a couple of days.  
I want to know who can guess where we went.

Hope you also had a relaxing, fun weekend.
