Dream Big

One of our big dreams is to build a house!
You could say I have expensive taste, but much of these pictures are very exaggerated!
Alot of my dreams have come true in the past 2 years

  • Got proposed to in the perfect way with the perfect ring
  • Married the man of my dreams
  • Blessed with an extremely adorable baby....even though he was unexpected ;)
  • Moved to a tropical island
  • And these are only a few....
So why not have my dream house!??


But something that Maikal and I have been talking alot about is what we want in a house.
We would love to settle down in Alberta where its close to family and friends. 
We want to build our house just outside of a city or town where its surrounded by trees and fields.
OK so here are some picture to better describe what we have been dreaming of!




I love english, spanish kind of feel to the outside of the house
We love love love pillars and balconies
And yes I know these kinds of houses are like millions of dollars,
but this is just the style I want :)
It doesn't necessarily have to be this big....
even though it would be nice!


We want a big open, tall roofed living room
We love open space!


We need to have a big dining table
Both our side have huge 'get-togethers' and it would be
so nice to seat everyone around a nice big table :)
And again...tall ceilings!


We dream of a double staircase when you first walk into the front door.
soooo beautiful.....*sigh*


I need a large open kitchen with plenty of counter space!
And I just loved this Idea with the other side of the counter as a bench space.


Who doesn't want secret rooms?
I know we will have at least 2.


Oh the walk in closet....every girls dream...


We would really love to have this coming up to my house :)
So whimsical! 


And of course I want a large backyard!
I love hosting big parties!


So am I dreaming Big?? Ya maybe..
But dreams do come true!!!

Playgroup

When I first moved to Hawaii, I would do 2 things.....stay inside or go on a walk. I had no one to hang out with! I felt so bored and alone alot of the time. It wasn't until this one girl Cari decided to create a playgroup for us mom's in and around TVA (temple view aprmts). This literally changed my life! Not only did I make great friends, but Ben made some as well! I have especially grown close to 2 of the mom's in playgroup, Cari and Lauren. Cari has a little girl Roxi (18mo's) and Lauren has a little boy Tayden (14 mo's). We all have so much fun together and I love that our kids can play with each other. Every Mother needs mommy friends. We help each other with everything and anything we can. We can relate with each other and tell each other all the stories about being a mom. It's so much fun and I highly recommend anyone out there who is a mom who doesn't have any mommy friends, to get one asap! It will make your life easier and much more fun!



This is Lauren. She is an amazing friend and fantastic mother. 
She has really motivated me to get back in shape!
She use to play for the BYUH Volleyball team and still managed to 
keep her rockin bod after having Tayden!
so jealous.....


This is Cari. She's pretty much BA.
She is currently prego with her second baby and she looks amazing!
Cari is so solid and is always fun to be around.


Roxi. She's a Babe.


Tayden. Lady Killer.


Sara and yaya


As you can see we spend alot of our time at the beach.
All of the kids enjoy it! I mean...who doesn't love the beach!
