Catchin' Up

Wow! It's been a little over a month since we've posted anything! Squire and I are keeping busy with our callings and work and school for me. Here are some pictures of some of the things that have been going on in our lives that last while.

Squire and I are fast approaching our year mark of marriage and we are as happy as ever! Something we love to do together is read! Squire got me this book for Easter and slowly but surely, we've been reading through it together! James Herriot writes true stories about his experiences as a vet in the Yorkshire Dales. They just warm your heart and make you laugh out loud and cry too! If you need a book to read to just feel good about life, James Herriot is a great author. : )

I have discovered Mrs.Snigg's Snickerdoodle cookies and we love them! Perfect recipe!

Squire and I have been looking for a mirror for our bedroom for quite some time now. When stopping by D.I. we scored and found this one for $15! It's amazing what a mirror does for a room.

I have been on an organizing kick lately. Squire and I got this cute basket to store all our fish food so we don't have to keep it out all the time, I finally organized my Relief Society binder (and had a bit of fun with the cover : ) ), and last but not least - I have discovered couponing and have become a crazy coupon lady!! You should check out this site. While the lady who does these seminars bases herself out of Utah County and informs us of all the good deals here in Utah, she has some seminars online that can help get you started if you're interested - no matter where you live. It's an awesome opportunity to save money and build up your food storage/home supplies storage - for free! All you need is a little planning, a little time and the patience to buy things when they're on sale. : )

Our fish Martina had about 20 babies. We saved them, but all but five have died. We're hoping the rest survive. They seem to be doing well. But, we're having fun watching them grow in the meantime.

We found a dead bat in front of our apartment a while back. We thought it was a mouse at first! Ewww! (Kinda cool though...)

We hope all is well with you! We'll post more soon! : )


  1. Great update! Love the pictures. :) Glad to hear you guys are doing well.

  2. Nice to see some action on this blog! You guys sound busy and happy and productive!

  3. You guys do the funnest things! I love looking at your blog and all that your up to...even if you haven't posted for a month, I eagerly anticipate your next post! How are you guys doing? Send me your email and I'll invite you to view my blog!

  4. Fun stuff! I feel like before I had Georgie I had all of the organizing, budgeting, cleaning, etc. all under control. Then I had her, got behind, and now I'm slowly but surely getting everything down again. I've recently been interested in doing the coupon thing (I generally feel that things that I need aren't items that really go on sale, but I'm sure I'm wrong), so thanks for the site!

  5. I used to listen to All Creatures Great and Small on tape ALLLL THE TIME when I was a kid! I love those stories!!!
