Sam loves being outside and taking pictures:)
He has been wanting to find a spot to take pictures for weeks,
So we decided after church we would just drive
Until we found the perfect place!
We hit the jackpot and found the best place for pictures:)
We are no professionals,
But we sure had fun:)
 Setting up shop!:)
We have made plans to come back Saturday!
There was a small hiking trail and a little stream that went on for a bit,
If I wasn't in heels we may have explored some more, ha!
 This pose was kind of a fail, haha!
Sam had to jump over the small stream
And my heels were sinking into the ground,
We were laughing pretty hard!
I love October,
I loved our adventure today,
And I love my sweet Sam:)

Today is my most favorite day of the year:)
Today is my sweet husband, Sam's birthday!!!
 We started the festivities yesterday and had some homemade Cafe Rio to kick off the birthday celebration:)
I got everything all set up the night before so Sam could wake up to his birthday surprises!!
 I'm sure you can see the pink cake by now...
Sam wanted strawberry flavored frosting for his birthday,
And being the awesome wife that I am;)
I didn't really think through the color until I was half-way done frosting, Haha!!
So a pink cake it was:)
 There's my handsome 23 year-old husband:)
 We started off his birthday morning off with some doughnuts, eggs, bacon, and his all time favorite...
Sam had to work all day on his birthday,
So I made sure to surprise him with balloons and a yummy lunch:)
 We ended his birthday in Idaho Falls with some Texas Roadhouse!:)
All Sam really wanted on his birthday was a steak;)
We drove around Idaho Falls for a bit and headed back to our apartment for some cake and ice cream!
We FaceTimed some family and sang to Sam multiple times:)
When we were in Disneyland,
Sam mentioned that one of his favorite rides was
Tower of Terror!
I found the old Disney, Tower of Terror movie
And gave it to him for his birthday,
So we ended the night with that:)
Our brother-in-law Joe made this awesome picture
With some of the Cannon family!
This is from the movie,
If you haven't seen this Disney classic,
You are missing out!!!
I seriously want this framed,
It is too funny and classic!:)
Momma Cannon sent me this sweet picture of Sam:)
This was taken when he turned one,
He was just the cutest little babe:)

I love you so much Sam:)
Here is to another wonderful year!!!

Good News Friday

About a year ago I found out about health problems I was having.
I was discouraged at first thinking,
"How could I have Hypothyroidism and Insulin Resistance?!"
"How did this happen?!"
"How can I fix this?"
I set some goals for myself,
Because I was tired of all the bad news I was receiving,
And was ready for some good news!
I am so grateful for my sweet Sam,
He has pushed me to work so hard this year to get me on track and improve my health!
I had some tests ordered at the beginning of this week and heard back on the results today!:)
The nurse had such great news to tell me on the phone,
I was so excited that my hard work had paid off and my health was on the up and up!
I still have a long ways to go,
But I'm feeling so much better than I did a year ago!:)
Our bodies are amazing and such a gift,
And I am so grateful for mine:)

Renner Lane Hawker

My little nephew Renner made his grand entrance into the world today,
And we are all sure smitten by him:)
Blake and Alex sure have a good recipe for some pretty cute kids!
Here are some pictures from the hospital,
It was so fun to be there with my family:)
Blake and Alex got Renner's name from the pro motorcyclist Ronnie Renner!
Blake is a huge motorcycle enthusiast,
And I just love the unique name they picked for their baby boy:)
 Renner just slept the entire time we were there,
Hardly ever cried and was just the cutest bundle of joy:)
 Sam hasn't held a new born baby for quite some time,
He was so excited to meet Renner:)
 One proud Aunt and Uncle:)
We sure love our little Renner buddy!:)
