Peanut Butter Reese's Cookies

101 in 1001 #19: Make 10 new recipes, at least one in each of the following categories: dessert, dinner, foreign, salad, healthy, drink, and something with quinoa! 

Complete: 1/10, DESSERT

Okay, so this item on my list isn't 100% complete yet, but I figured I could split the recipes into separate posts and it'd be a fun way to stay updated instead of waiting til they're all done! 

This picture makes it very apparent I'm not a food photographer.
Maybe I should brush up on those skills. :)

Get ready to meet your new favorite cookie.


Happy Birthday, Baby.

This post is a month overdue, but I'm getting back into the swing of blogging so here we go! We celebrated Jack's first birthday on September 1st! I can't believe it's already been a year since this little boy became a part of our family. He brings so much joy, light, and laughter into our home. His personality is already out in full-force and we can't help but love it! I'm so blessed to be his momma.


101 in 1001: 9/21/2017 - 6/18/2020

Mom life is weird.

Don't get me wrong, it's also the best thing ever. But in no other phase of my life have I simultaneously had so much to do and also nothing to do. I have a lot more free time as a new mom than I thought I would, but I'm kind of limited to certain things during that time because of naps and such. It's kind of hard to explain...

Basically, I'm feeling kind of stuck and bored with the same things all the time. So, in an effort to add some excitement back into my life, I'm stealing an idea from my cute sister-in-law, Emily. It's called: 101 in 1001.


Bryce Canyon Trip

At the beginning of April, I was getting a bit of Cabin Fever. It's been a long winter (or just a very "flip-floppy" one, weather wise! It'll warm up and I get my hopes up, and then we see snow the next day. Pretty normal for Utah, but still). I was pretty cooped up in my house a lot of the time.

This is all to say, I was dying to get out of the house and my normal routine. So, when my mom mentioned that she and Grant were thinking of heading to Bryce Canyon for a couple of days, I jumped at the chance to join them. :) And I'm so glad I did! It was a blast.

I almost didn't go, due to Jack coming down with a cold the night before! He's now old enough to take ibuprofen, so I thought I'd try it seeing as it was pretty obvious he was in pain, and it lasts longer than Tylenol.

Turns out, he doesn't like it. Or so we learned the hard way!


6 Months of Baby Jack

It is truly so crazy to see how much this baby boy has changed in the last 6 months! He's certainly gotten chunkier from his itty bitty 6 pound debut into the world. I'm about to say a whole slew of cliche things so brace yourselves: I wish I could just stop time! Looking back at how tiny he was, I already find myself wanting to turn back the clock. But at the same time, each new stage is even more fun than the last. Plus, his interactions, giggles, and curiosity about the world right now are such a joy. Being Jack's momma makes me so happy! And so, without further ado. Here's a little glimpse at his last 6 months! Love this boy.
