"Overall, We Had a Pretty Good Year."

When it comes to the department of in-laws, I got pretty lucky.
I am the first daughter in law in the family and we live about 5 minutes from Tanner's parents so it's been so fun to get closer with my in laws; and be a part of their lives. 
The Charlesworth gang is very different than the Ainge gang, but it's still awesome to see and learn the differences. 
First off, the Charlesworth gang is way more country than the city-folk, sports obsessed family that I grew up in. I loved how I grew up, but it's still interesting to learn new things: about hunting, fishing, being more outdoors. 
We thought it would be pretty funny to use that country background and dress up in our "country attire' as a joke. As you can see, we took some normal photos. 
The background of these photos are so beautiful and rustic, I couldn't even handle it.

We were jokingly coming up with phrases that relate to these photos. I think my favorite is:
"Overall, we had a pretty good year."

Family Photo Outtakes.

Last week, I posted my beautiful family photos. I came across these awesome out takes and thought I would share with you. 
Because who doesn't love funny photos, right?

Family Photos.

I don't have much to say because I'm going to let these beautiful photos do the talking. 
But, here are my two cents: 
A) fall in the mountains are unreal.
B) my husband and puppy are so cute. 
C) I guess this means I'm an adult cause I'm gonna use some of these for Christmas cards. Who wants one?! :) 
Enjoy :)

Holly Hoop 2014 & an Announcement

Well friends, the time has come...
I will be posting about 3-4x a week now with some possible posts on the weekend, instead of 5 times Monday-Friday. Some may argue this sentiment, but for the next few months, my life is quite insane with, well, life and sometimes the weekends inspire me more!  I have decided that I want to write when I make QUALITY posts. For me, quality is what I look for.  So y'all may be getting less posts, but better posts :) 
You check back here every few days and you will find some good stuff. HOLLA! This blog is such a special place for me, and I want to continue it, but I also don't want to lose myself. I don't want to become someone I'm not. 
I also want to be present in real life a little more as well. 

This past weekend was my Fall Break. T Money had a hunting tag so I ditched his cute little booty and drove out to Oregon. Three years ago, my dear niece, died from SIDS (see posts on sidebar that talk about dealing with death). Every year my sister and brother in law put on a 5k/10k race to fundraise for another family who's lost a baby. It's a fun event to honor our sweet Holland, while helping others. This is called The Holly Hoop. I have never had the opportunity to go because it's always in Oregon and I usually have school, but it happened to fall on fall break this year, so I went! 
It was so much fun! 
I loved spending time with my parents, siblings, nieces and nephews. I got to road trip with good lifelong friend and have awesome conversations. It was a quick trip, but it was so enjoyable. 
If you saw on my Instagram you noticed all the adorable photos of my nieces and nephews. It's really not fair how cute they are. No, seriously. 
Nothing better than a quick getaway to see family and in Oregon--the prettiest state! (But I'm biased) 
Thinking of you, my dear angel niece, Holland. We love and miss you everyday. 
My Oregon people--next year, get your booties to this fun event!

The most beautiful baby in the world, my nephew, Thatcher. 
This is literally the path behind my house. Love it. Love the long walks I take with my mom whenever I go home. 
Side story: on the way back to utah, we realized we needed gas. But we were out in the middle of nowhere. So we drove 40 miles pretty much on empty. When we filled up, this is what happened. I have an 18 gallon tank. Yea...Jesus loves us.
