just some things

If, in a fit of crazy, I ever decide to cut my hair, please talk me out of it. I've never had long hair before, and I am loving it. One of my favorite things about it is that I don't have to blow dry it anymore. That is life changing, and that reason alone is worth all of the time I've spent growing it out!

Mike and I got a new bed. It arrived yesterday morning and I don't know if it was the new mattress, or that I was just really tired, or still getting over my sinus infection, but my nap that afternoon was heavenly. We moved up from a queen to a California king and are very happy with our Tempurpedic purchase.

Last weekend was our school's carnival. I hope they raised a lot of money, because I know it was a lot of work to put together. We all had a great time, especially our cowgirl Stella.

Sunday's are our favorite. I snapped this photo of the kids playing in Nana and Grampa's backyard before dinner. We always have the best time at their house, and the weather this past Sunday was gorgeous.

Are you doing anything special for Easter? We will be attending the Easter Pageant tonight. If you are in the area, you should come! We get there early, sit on the lawn, and eat our dinner while we wait for the show to start. It is always such a wonderful experience. Easter is one of my favorite holidays, and I am excited to focus more on the Savior and His sacrifice and resurrection this week.

This video by Elder Holland is one of my favorite things to watch this season. I hope you'll click over and take a look. It always puts me in the right place.

p.s. Happy birthday to my dad!


  1. That's the exact mattress upgrade I'm hoping we'll get soon! So good to hear from yet another person that that mattress is great.

  2. Courtney, we have some off-brand springless, memory foam mattress that is slightly less firm than a tempurpedic and we've loved it for the past 7 years!
