Ivy Grace.

I swear, I always think I have a grip on my baby hunger and am okay with not having a little baby myself... Then I see this little babe and that all goes away and I'm like OKAY JUST GIVE ME A BABY ALREADY!!! Seriously, it's a constant inner battle. Because, I know now is just not the best timing. And just because it is not happening right now, doesn't mean it never will. It will just be a little bit. So whenever I am having a weak moment, and need to get my baby fix, I just get to hold Ivy girl and everything is better. I mean, better and worse because who wouldn't want a baby after holding her. But it does help when I get to snuggle her then give her back to her mommy when she is barfing or pooping. ; ) So until I get to have my own, I'll be found snuggling my little nieces and soon to be nephew. I love them so much.

valentine's day.

Valentine's Day this year was the best. I woke up to Taylor gone, but with this little message written on our bathroom mirror. He is so cute! We decided to keep it low-key. No presents (we both didn't listen to that..) and have a night in with take-out Lone Star Taqueria (our favorite place EVER. Seriously- we need to either move to Salt Lake to be closer, or invest in opening one in Bountiful.) We moved our bed into our family room and watched About Time. It was the absolutely perfect night, and so nice to just relax since we always have such a hectic and busy schedule. I love holidays and Valentine's is just the perfect holiday to take a little bit of extra time to celebrate us and how much we love each other. Our life is so good together. 
^^Our fancy candlelit dinner.^^
I can't believe this is the third Valentine's Day we have celebrated together. Where does the time go!?

I love birthdays. And my most favorite birthday is my husband's birthday. I have never been a big fan of January or February, but having Taylor's birthday on February 2nd gives me something to look forward to during those months, which is a good thing. This year for Taylor's birthday, I wanted to plan something awesome, and wanted it to be a surprise. I booked a hotel in Midway to stay at over night, and it included a swim in the Crater. As it got closer, I decided I had to tell Taylor to make sure it was something he wanted to do. We decided we would rather spend the money when it gets warmer and we can actually do fun things in Park City rather than pay the money to watch Netflix in bed, which we can do at home for free : ). We still went to Park City, but didn't stay over night. We shopped, then ate dinner at Blue Plate Diner, one of our all time favorite restaurants. It was so much fun! On Sunday, his actual birthday, we went to his parents house, watched the Super Bowl, and celebrated his birthday. The next sunday we went to my parent's house, and I made my first ever cake for my grandpa and Taylor, the February birthday boys. I have always wanted to bake a cake, but I don't like cake, so I never have. Although it went a lot better than planned, I want to find a better tasting recipe for the cake part. The cookie dough ice cream layer was my favorite part, but then again, I am a sucker for ice cream! It was a great weekend celebrating my favorite person on earth! I love you, Taylor!
