The Spa

Work has been going great. At first I didn't think I would pick up clients too quickly, but they seem to keep me busy and I am glad. It was extremely nerve racking in the beginning. It has been a while since I have been in the Spa atmosphere and I am more used to the medical environment, but I am so grateful for a good job, great coworkers and the opportunity to do what I love. And... I was amazed at how everything comes back so quickly! I had a training day on Tuesday and I was able to get a Vitamin C peel and Microdermabrasian to feel the product that they use and the machine. It was awesome! In school they never let us combine the two, but when they are put together it is such a powerful and awesome treatment. My skin needed that after having a baby and I feel great. The stress from a new job didn't help my skin either, so hopefully it clears up great.

Leaving Emma is still hard, but I am so lucky to have my Mom and Mother-in-law Kim to watch her. They are so good to me and Emma does great with them, sometimes even better than when she is with me, ha ha. I miss her when I am at work, but I know she is in good hands and I am so grateful for the help. Thank you!

Hopefully as time goes on and I become a regular I will pick up more clients. The Holidays are coming so I hope to be plenty busy!!! If you are bored, come visit me at Nouveau. =)

Here we come Halloween :)

I have been working on a few beanies for baby gifts whenever I can manage to find the time. Here is my latest. It is a pumpkin if you can't tell and there is a brown stem on the top if you can't see it that well on your computer. I think it is one of the cutest yet, and I just can't resist taking pictures when it turns out this cute, and the cUtEsT bAbY in the world just makes it that much better. =)

I love FALL, the colors, the leaves falling off of trees, warm and delicious soups, comfy clothes and the many layers of sweatshirts/scarfs/beanies, cloudy cold days where you can cuddle up to your loved ones. It is the best, brings happiness to my heart <3 and I can't wait for the Holidays and what is to come this fall. Although if I say so myself... I love October the best because coming soon is my 1 year anniversary. =)

Ryan's new TOY

Ryan recently traded his Jeep Wrangler for a Suzuki Samuri. The Samuri was ready to go wheeling and is a vehicle he has always wanted. If any of you know my husband you know he is a car addict. I figure that I have to get excited with him so it doesn't drive me anymore nuts than it already does. Oh how I love him... :)

Camo seems so perfect being the Hunter that he is, ha ha.

Rub a Dub Dub!

Emma Loves Bath Time. Although, it is a lot of work for Mommy and Daddy cleaning in between all of those rolls...

Loving it!

Wow! Check out all those rolls!!!

Sunday and New Pictures

On Sunday it was Stake Conference or "Regional" and since it was the same everywhere, Emma and I went to church with Nana and Papa. All of her newborn dresses she only got to wear once... So sad because some of them were so cute! This dress was given to me by my sister and I love it, especially since at the moment it is the only one that fits and will fit for maybe a couple more Sundays, ha ha. Here we are leaving to church, happy as can be.

Emma is so chunky. It is hysterical. She outweighed a 4 1/2 month old baby on Sunday and she is only 2 months! What a Chowhound...

Here is some other pictures that I took of Ry and
Emma after she was burped. I love these photos because of her chubby cheeks and lips. They are so funny. So FULL. Ha ha...

So precious. Her hair is finally starting to come back in. Although now we have a bald spot in the back. You just can't win, ha ha.

Sleepy Chubby Bunny :)

Last, but not least here is Chevy. She is a year now and still small to me. But everyone that comes over and sees her thinks she is so big! She was my first baby and loves Emma. She is still a little stinker though... :)

It is a miracle I got this picture of her. The moment you point the camera in her direction she usually looks the other way... Too smart for her own good.

Life Update :)

Sleepy baby in her bouncer

So much has happened the last couple of weeks and I have been too busy to update. Emmalee is growing beautifully. She is getting so big so fast and I can hardly believe it! Em has started making cooing noises and she seems to have a lot more to say. She is more alert each day and getting quite the personality. I love watching her grow and it is amazing the changes that she has made. She looks more and more different all the time to me. Still mostly like her Daddy, but I think that could change. :)

Ryan is still busy working and being the great supporter of our family. He is still loving his hobbies. He is in the process of possibly trading his Jeep Wrangler for a Samuri, which is a wheeling rig. Basically the one of his dreams. He seems to get new cars as often as eats. I figure at this point if he works for them and sales one thing for another I can't complain and this hobby makes him happy :) He is also looking forward to hunting season this fall, but with school starting at the end of September and lasting until December he may not get to do much of that.

As for me, I seem to keep busy being a Mommy (which I love), cleaning and keeping up with the house and the latest... My new job!!! Out of the blue I was called by Nouveau Skin Care and Day Spa. I had applied to them when I first moved home a year ago after I graduated. I hadn't heard anything and basically gave up on working there. I was so excited to get the call and it is for the perfect amount of hours. I will be part-time and will be able to train with Esthetician's that have done this for 30+ years. I will have the opportunity to train/learn from them and their experience as well as expertise. I am excited to learn new things that I didn't know in school, and to continue in the profession that I love. This is the ultimate job for me to be able to work in the largest and best Spa that we have in little old Tri-Cities. The Spa offers so many new treatments that I haven't been able to do before, let alone try myself. I am grateful to contribute to our family and continue in the skin care business. :)
