20 weeks! HALF WAY THERE!

yesterday i was officially 20 weeks along in my pregnancy and i can't believe it! Things have been going pretty smoothly and i am feeling pretty good now! The morning sickness has gone out the window, although now i am getting heartburn and stretching in my stomach quite regularly.
We get to go have an ultrasound on thurday and i can't wait to see our baby again! I am hoping they still say it is a girl, although i have not gotten too many things yet, just in case they say it's not a girl! That would be crazy.

I have had some requests for my belly pictures at this point, but i feel like there is nothing to show off yet, just a little more fat insulation is all! But, here are a couple pics anyway, just for fun.

Pics about the last post

So nothing really exciting-just a basement torn apart-Can you believe water can do this to a house? It's crazy!

My waiting area for my salon doesn't really exist anymore

Things could have been worse! That's what i keep telling myself

Wednesday, September 17


WOW! Life sure sends some things your way when you're just living comfortably doesn't it? I just need to vent and i guess a blog is as good as anything to get some things off your chest!
Things could have been a lot worse, but let me just say that we found a big mess in our basement yesterday. Somehow, in our house that's not even a year old yet, there has been a flood! A real and not so small flood has made our basement go from comfy and not often used by us to me feeling like i am starting all over with this building process. Although now, we actually live in the house upstairs and dust is already starting to invade! I have to say though that i am very lucky it did not affect my home salon, but it's not the prettiest thing to walk in to for my clients!
The water sat since Sunday. (Don't ask me how i didn't notice it on Monday, but i guess with shoes on and it being a little dry already, i just didn't notice)
So now, all the carpet is gone, base boards are off and dry wall is off about half way up the wall. Yep, it looks like we are starting over! It seriously is such a mess and i can't believe it. I just have to keep telling myself that it could be worse! It could have afftected my salon and i would have some unhappy clients and it could have happened when i was a lot further along and many other things that could make it worse!
So-that's it-I just had to vent about it for a minute-i already feel a little better :)
I'll get some pictures up later for you all to see.

Sophie's blessing

This post is for my sisters who live in alaska that don't get to participate in the family events. I hope these pictures help you feel a part of what's been going on.

Sophie's blessing was on sunday and she looked so beautiful! Marci made her dress and it turned out great. Ryan also did a great job on the blessing and we were all able to get together at Ryan and Marci's house afterward for some breakfast.

Kelli came over to the house later with her twins, Dean and Elysee. They were 2 1/2 weeks old in the pictures. She has got her hands full! Ella was not even there and i don't know how she keeps up with it all. She is a great mom.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

The star of the show, Sophie loafie! She is a little angel

Annabelle, Harman, and baby Soph

Annabelle adores her baby sister

Elysee getting burped by me..isn't she precious?

This is what the family looks like minus like half of us! We miss you guys!

The 3 babies. Only a month apart and look how much bigger Sophie is

Sweet little Elysee again

Husband of mine!

I'm having a little bit of a pity party this morning. Skylar left to Alaska to go fishing with his dad and the guys and i miss him so much already! It's definately not my idea of fun to have him gone. Although, i have to say that in the past when they have gone to Alaska, i feel like a little giddy child when it's time for his return! It really is a good thing to miss eachother, but i already can't wait to see him again! Might I add too that he is in the middle of nowhere so he has NO phone service. So, I can't even talk to him for a whole week. That's really hard for me, considering i talk to him like 20 times a day!
I was tagged to do the husband tag, so what better time for me to do it than now?.......
1- Where did you meet? Skylar and I met in high school. We kind of just hung out with the same group of friends and it all started there.
2- How long did you date before you were married? We dated for about 4 years before we were married
3- How long have you been married for? 4 and a 1/2 years
4- What does he do that surprises you? He acts really goofy when we are together and he loves to make me laugh. Most people don't know that side of him, but i know the real Skylar!
5- What's your favorite feature about him? I love everything about him, but i especially love his eyes and i love how tall he is!
6- What's your favorite quality about him? He is a very honest person. He is very good with people and good at what he does. He works very hard.
7- Does he have a nickname for you? We just both call eachother babe all the time, in fact when he calls me Traci it seems really wierd
8- What's his favorite color? I would say blue, but then again, i don't really know, he likes every color
9- What's his favorite food? I would have to say spaghetti, but not just any spaghetti, but the way his mom makes it.
10-What is his favorite sport? Golf in the summer and basketball any other time of the year
11- Who said I love you first? ya know, it was so long ago, i don'e reameber the exact first time we said we loved eachother. I'm pretty sure he said it first though, i was pretty shy!
12- When and where was your fist kiss? I still remember it like it was yesterday! We went on a date to watch a movie and when he dropped me off, he kissed me in my garage.
13-What's your favorite thing to do as a couple? We just like to be together! We don't really have a specific favorite thing to do together, but my favorite times are when we are just home, hanging on the couch, cuddling :)
14-Do you have kids? How many? We don't have any just yet, but i am expecting our first baby Feb 8 and we can't wait!
15- What's a hidden talent that he has? ya, i will have to think about that one, he always knows how to make up with me when we are fighting, even if i want to be mad, he can come make me laugh and it breaks the ice.
16- How old is he? 25
17- What's his favorite type of music? He just likes what i like, but he does like all of the old rock. The kind that he grew up listening to with his dad.
18- What do you admire most about him? I admire his work ethic! and his honesty
19-What's his favorite past time? I think he would say hanging out with me and having me there when he golfs and does stuff like that is even better! Lately we have loved shopping for our baby
20- Do you think he is going to read this? i think he will at some point, but not for at least a week cause he is fishing in alaska:(

I tag my sisters. Erika, Lisa, Kelli and Marci.

We went and had an ultrasound yesterday to find out the gender of our little peanut and.....

We are so excited! I must say that she was very cooperative and gave us a perfect shot to be able to tell what she was. The tech was 100% positive this baby is a girl. It was so fun to watch her move around in there and to realize it's for real! This little one is going to have her daddy wrapped around her finger! We are both extatic and can't wait for her grand entrance in Feb.

Here she is in a full body side profile!

and here she is giving us that perfect shot so there is no question what she is! We can start to shower her in all the pink girly stuff!

We are so excited for our little Ashlyn to come!

Boring thursday

Well, i am always checking to see if any of your blogs are updated, so i decided i need to start updating more often!
Today i did not work because i got a notice on my door from midway saying that the water was going to be turned off today, so i called all my appts today and rescheduled them. I had the day to get things done, so what do i do? NOTHING! I cleaned up my house a little, but i did not really accomplish a whole lot. I was able to go to lunch with my mom and niece, Ella and that was good!
I am finally beginning to look a little more pregnant than fat! I feel like people still can't tell that there is a baby in there! They must just think that i had a little too much to eat for lunch:)
Skylar and i can not wait for Monday to come! We are going to find out what we are having! I will be just over 16 weeks. I will make sure to update when we find out what the gender is!
My sister Kelli had her twins yesterday and i have not been able to see them, but have heard how very different they look and also how different their little personalities are! She did great and was able to have them both vaginally and that is amazing! Dean was 5 lbs. 13 oz and Elizae (not sure how to spell it) was 5 lbs. 2 oz. SO GOOD JOB KEL!!! You are a great mom!

I know, it has been way too long!

Hi everybody! I promise, i am still alive and doing well! I guess that the only excuse i have for not being up to date is that i have been busy having fun this summer.

We have not done any true vacationing, but have had some fun little weekend trips. It was so great to have my sister erika and her little family here from Alaska, but they are gone now and it's sad:(

Since i last posted, i have had a niece born to my brother Ryan and Marci. They named her sophie. And i had a nephew born, Keegan, to Skylar's little sister Kelsie. Babies are so precious, but they grow too fast! My sister Kelli is about ready to pop being pregnant with twins. She looks so great though! I can't believe that she has 2 babies in her belly.

I am doing well in my pregnancy. I am 14 weeks along tomorrow and things seem to be going well. I have a dr. appointment tomorrow and i can't wait to hear the heartbeat again! Sickness is still lingering around, but my magic pills (Zofran) has been just that, MAGIC! They make me feel so much better and i feel really lucky that i was able to take them.

We went to lava hot springs in idaho for a family reunion last weekend and had a lot of fun floating down the river.
I can't think of anything else for now, but now you are all caught up, kind of.

MY cute niece Addi Guymon and I on the 4th of July

Happy birthday to me!

I had a great birthday this year! It was my 24th birthday on Friday and it was quite the day. Without going into too much detail i will say that after some bad situations the day ended up being great. I got to spend the day with the person i love most and it was great.

During the day we got to go to deer creek and be on the boat for a bit (we ended up having to be towed back to the dock) My friend Brittany and her little girl Bella came along and we had fun.

I wish i would have taken a picture of this, but we went over to my mom and dads house that night and watched a movie outside with a projector and then slept out there. It was so much fun, but so COLD!

I got some awesome gifts! First off, Skylar got me some awesome chairs for my sitting area just outside my salon and i love them!

i got some clothes, and skylar walked in that morning from work with like 15 balloons and a dozen red roses with one yellow rose. He wrote the sweetest card, too cute to not post.

and then at the bottom of the card it said P.S. have fun at the concert! and he whipped these out

Carrie underwood tickets! How fun! I was so surprised! I will be quite pregnant by then, but we will have so much fun! It is November 19! I can't wait to go!

Then his parents stopped by and brought some awesome cakes! Yes, i said cakes. My father in law was in charge of ordering them and got 3! They were so pretty and yummy, but i forgot to take a picture of them:( They also brought my present from them and i love them! There is a theme to this birthday....CHAIRS! I got some chairs for our front patio and they look perfect! My mother in law has great taste!

Thank you to all who made it a great day!

All I have to say is

Skylar and I have a BIG announcement to make.....


I am officially 7 weeks and my due date is February 8. It seems like a long time away, but i know it will go by fast! Maybe not though, with the way i have been feeling time is going by way too slow! There is no such thing as morning sickness! It is 24 hour sickness for me. Now, I know we all go through this, but it is way hard working 10 hour days and being sick. Somehow, i know i will get through it and it will all be worth it in the end.

I won't give a big drawn out story, but Skylar and I are so excited. It has been a long time coming and it is such a miracle!
After trying for 2 and 1/2 years i had finally gotten to the point of resigning myself to the fact that i may never have my own children. I have no doubt now that Heavenly Father has a plan for all of us and i can not doubt that now is the time for us to bring a child into the world!

I know i am front and center of this picture but skylar doesn't like the camera very much, but i thought this was a cute picture of him!

Today is my husbands birthday! Happy Birthday babe! He is 25 and it's crazy. I feel like we are getting so old. Now, i know that 25 is not very old, but i have known skylar since i was 16 and he was 17, so to say we are 25 and 24 is crazy! He is the best husband in the world and i love him so much! Have a great day sweetheart.

No turnin back!

Well, I did it! I have come to the dark side! ha ha

I colored my hair like the next day after i posted the last one and i have loved it! I didn't have my camera and just got it back so i thought i would post my new hair. It already feels a lot healthier and i don't know why it took me so long to do it, but i love it! and so does my husband, so that helps a little. However, i was really surprised that he liked it cause he tends to be more attracted to the long blonde type. So, anyway, it's been a week and it has already faded a ton, so i think i will be coloring it again soon!

What do ya think?

So, i am just curious of everyones opinion.... I am thinking of doing my hair dark! I have been blonde for a long time and let's face it, my hair is naturally pretty dark and i'm quite sick of the roots! But i'm not just going to do brown, i mean DARK brown! What do you think?

My Cute Nieces!

I just got back from New York with the Widdison girls and i have never had so much fun! I have to blog about it when i get some pictures from my sisters, but i just have to say that it is AMAZING there! I didn't think i would like it that much to be honest, but i was so wrong! I loved loved loved it! All of it! But especially the broadway musical WICKED! It was seriously as good as you hear it is! I can't stop singing the songs in my head. and the make-up store SEPHORA is my favorite. It is open til midnight every night! Purse shopping in Chinatown was great as well! I bought 6purses that are adorable.

MY sister and her 2 daughters came up and they are so awesome! I can not get enough of them. Here they are. Alyvia is 4 years old. Ainsley is 5 months.

New Salon!

I know i promised pictures of my new little salon so here it is.

Cute, huh?
The pidicure chair is quite comfy!
It was hard to get a picture of the whole room together so you get two different pictures. I have loved doing hair from home. I am so lucky!

summer here we come

This weekend has been fun, but as always has gone by too fast. It's sunday afternoon and that means Monday is approaching too fast. But guess what the best part about that is?.... i don't dread monday because i wake up and go to my basement to do hair. it's the greatest thing ever! i feel so lucky.

We started out by doing nothing friday night which i guess i should feel lucky that we can sit around and not worry about anything. AT least that's what people with kids always tell me. "Enjoy it while you can!" So that's what we did. Then Saturday we bummed around then finally decided on a plan. Kelsie (Skylar's sister) and i were craving cafe rio (what's new), kelsie saw a dog on ksl that she really wanted and skylar has been looking at bullet bikes on ksl for the last week religiously every day searching. So, there was one on there that i actually saw first and showed it to him and neither of us could stop thinking about it. You have to understand that in the last year we have gone through 3 different bikes, and with the weather warming up skylar could not get his mind off of getting a new one. So, we all decided to go together to Provo/ Salt Lake to look at least and think about it. Well, once we saw the dog, there was no thinking about it. He is so stinking cute and such a good puppy! It makes me want one really bad, but i know that not all puppys are like that! Here he is-his name is Hurley

So that's the dog story, well next came the bullet bike. We pull up to the house and it was over the second that skylar looked at it. Then he rode it and there was no getting him off of it. and he looked really good too. ha ha

So this is his one from last year- good lookin right?

And now-the new and improved
So-that was that- we have a new addition and my husband is obsessed!

he's so cute!

I hope that everyone had a good weekend!
