Life Lately

Life has been so much fun lately with my new little pup. Before, my days were pretty boring. All I did was work on my thesis. Now I get to work on my thesis while Charlie naps (which he does a lot of) and then play him the rest of the time. He is so much fun and the cutest thing I've ever seen!
Sometimes I just want to eat him up he's so cute!
 He loves sitting on my lap and chewing his bone...
 or on his cow.
He's really great about going in the car and running errands with us. Everywhere we take him people freak out because of his cuteness and we're proud parents haha
 Charlie experienced his first snow this week and he wasn't so sure about it.
 He just kept trying to eat it all :)

Provo Fashion Week Kickoff Party

Last night I went to the Provo Fashion Week's VIP Kickoff party. It was such a blast! 
I haven't been to a blogging event in forever and it was so nice to see all of these cute girls!
Blogging has brought me some pretty amazing friends!
It's true, blondes do have more fun ;) 
We got to preview some of the looks that will be shown at this weekend's fashion shows. Everything was so beautiful! This dress however was by far my favorite. It is SO gorgeous!! 
It definitely turned into a dance party by the end! These girls know how to party.  
If you live in the Provo/Utah area buy tickets here and maybe I'll see you there!

Bright Smokey Eye Tutorial

This eye shadow combination has been my favorite lately and I had some questions about it so I threw together a quick tutorial. All of the products are inexpensive but great quality in my opinion. 

And course there is some video of Charlie in there :)

Life with my furbaby

 I can't believe it's been a week since this little guy joined the family! I take WAY too many pictures of him and I don't want to overwhelm all of you with all of them so I started an instagram page for little charlie (I know, it's a bit ridiculous. But my family loves to see all the pics).
He loves to sleep in the cutest positions and funniest places
He is so good when I get ready in the morning. He's my little buddy! 
He just lays on my lap while I do my makeup and hair. 
He also loves to take naps in my arms which I love!! He's my baby:)
 His cow is his favorite chew toy!
I think he is the prettiest sleeper 
 It's so nice to have a park close to let Charlie go run around. His little legs are so short that he leaps more than runs. It is the cutest thing!! I need to take a video so I don't forget!
 "Mommy stop taking pictures with me"
 I mean look at that face!!!
 He's not a fan of baths. We're hoping to get him to enjoy them somehow. 
 He loves comfy stuff. If I can't find him he's usually in a pile of pillows or blankets.

Morning cuddles with these two is my new favorite thing in the world!

Infertility and getting a puppy

I never thought I would be a puppy owner at this point in my life. Sure everyone loves puppies (except for the heartless haha) but I just thought that would be something I did later in life, like when I had a family and a house. But life doesn't go how you expect usually. 

As I talked about here, Scott and I have been wanting to expand our family for quite a while now. Infertility is exhausting emotionally and physically. Treatments become your full time job some weeks and all the shots and hormones take quite a toll. It's a roller coaster monthly and often daily. Is it worth it? YES. Is it hard? YES. Everybody has to do hard, unfair things in life and right now this is mine. It is heartbreaking and I want nothing more than for it to change, but I have learned so much in the process. I have learned I am much stronger and tougher than I thought I was. I've learned how to be positive when it's really hard. I've learned that its okay to have hard, bad days with some good crying. And I've also learned that there are so many other amazing, wonderful women going through the same pain silently. 

I have to say that getting our puppy has already brought so much healing to my heart. He has given us someone to nurture and love. He has made us feel like parents to an extent. He is my little guy and I just love to take care of him. I feel so lucky to be his furmommy!

Introducing Charlie

We have a new little member of our family!! This is Charles (Charlie) Hunter! 
He is the cutest puppy I have ever seen and we are so in love!!

Charlie is a 8 week old Maltipoo weighing in at 2.5 pounds.
He is so loving and cuddly! He is already pretty good at going potty where he should and he loves to chew on fingers and toes (we're working on that one). He has the cutest little waddle/run and he follows mommy and daddy around wherever they go. He looks a little chubby but it is all fluff.

Charlie already feels like my baby and has brought me so much joy!
I still can't believe he is ours!!! Yay for furbabies!!

Lots of Love

If you didn't know already, I'm obsessed with puppies. I want one sooooo bad! So, my good friend Stef and I went to my new favorite place in the world- the puppy barn. It is like heaven on earth. I have never come so close to taking one home with me!
After tearing our hearts out and leaving the puppies at the barn we went to Cubby's for lunch. If you live in Utah Cubby's is a must. The sweet potato fries are the best I have ever had.
Over the weekend we went to a concert with my brother-in-law, his girlfriend and some of their friends. Afterward we came home and made a heart shaped pazookie. It was such a fun night. I didn't get as many pictures as I would have liked though. 
 Yesterday I made these heart shaped sugar cookies. They are my favorite Valentine's Day tradition. I think these are the yummiest and prettiest ones I have ever made. 
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
