tid + bits

Get ready for some cuteness right about now...

 The Happy Couple :)

+My favorite seasons in Utah are Spring and Fall. Right now there are blossoms just everywhere you look. I love it! Growing up in San Diego you never see the seasons change like you do living somewhere like Utah. Over the years of living here, I have truly grown an appreciation for the gorgeous nature here!

+My mom recently returned from Canada after going up to watch my two nephews. She did not disappoint in bringing back the rest of us some of our favorite Canadian goodies. I am sorry America, but when it come to the sweets and treats, Canada has you beat. I spend months out of the year just craving for some of this stuff! In fact right now, I really want some Popcorn Twists, anyone from Canada want to send me some?! :)

+Didn't go crazy on the Easter candy over here, trying to be healthy, but I had to get me and Trevor a chocolate bunny and some Cadbury Creme eggs... I mean, those are kind of mandatory :)

+As you may recall from yesterdays post my little sister got engaged a couple days ago. Normally my tid + bits are of things going on in my life, but since my sister is a big part of my life, I had to share some tid+bits of the proposal (and these aren't even half of the cuteness that was captured).
-------A little background, my sister is a MAJOR horse lover, always has been. So these beauties were just the cherry on top of the proposal! Oh and she LOVED your comments yesterday, she read every single one of them :) Thanks guys!

P.S. You guys! I am going to try and e-mail everyone back who commented on my Remember to be kind post. It was very comforting to know that so many of us have gone through, or are going through the same kinds of things. Like I mentioned before, right now is kind of a lonely time for us, and to get that kind of feedback from you guys, just that you understand, really really helped me feel better. I didn't know how good that could feel, not feeling alone in something... so thank you, you guys are the best.

  15. I love that you guys got pictures of the proposal! When my husband proposed, he asked me to take a picture with him and he held up the ring behind my shoulder without me knowing. When he asked me to check out the photo and see if it looked okay, I noticed the ring and by the time I looked up, he was down on one knee.
    Seeing the look on each of their faces is always so priceless! And how pretty, with the snow and the horses! Congrats to the happy couple! :)

  31. I love the blossoms this time of year. It's so wonderful after the grays and browns of winter.

    P.S. I'm not sure if we know each other from real life. Unless you've been in the Pacific Northwest recently...or ever. But you seem familiar to me too.

  40. this is so cute. but it looks cold. lol. im from vegas, we only had two seasons warm and hot, so i know what you mean. i have been trying to be healthier as well, but on easter i had to eat all of the reeses eggs. (and i wonder why i've gained 10 pounds since being married). also, i hope things are going better. me and my husband have the same thing, sometimes we won't see each other for 12 hours and i just get mad because i haven't seen him. i know its silly. but hope all is well.

  41. Speaking of foreign candy, you have to get yourself a kinder surprise egg if you've never had one. They are illegal here ha! But don't worry there's nothing sinister in it, just a toy inside a chocolate egg.

    ReplyDelete
  42. We usually go to Canada every year, but I've never really checked out the candy - I'll have to do that next year.

    ReplyDelete
  43. yay congratulations for your little sister! Looks like a fun engagement. When is she getting married??

    p.s. I could really go for those cadbury eggs right about now. so good!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Oh my goodness. I seriously love anything Cadbury - when I was in England I was hooked.
    Ugh, just what I need, a greater love of chocolate! Ha ha:)
