Lucy’s 2nd Birthday

My adorable niece Lucy turned 2 this past week and I was lucky enough to get to help with the decorating. My sister in law chose “The Wheels on the Bus” theme. It turned out to be so stinking cute!

Is she cute or what? It was so fun watching Lucy open all her presents. Although a couple presents did distract her and she didn’t care to open the next.

Front Porch Lovin

My front porch is seriously one of my favorite things to decorate! I absolutely love that I get to update it with each season. It makes it that much more exciting and gives me something to always look forward to!

With summer around the corner I had a lot of fun playing around with bright colors. The end product turned out great. According to my husband it looks like a junk yard…. a cute one though. He’s lucky he added the “a cute one though.” Luckily for me, my husband gives me the reins and is always sure to comment on the new decor and how much he likes it. Did I luck out or what? I mean the decor changes almost as much as my outfit.IMG_3743

Here are some of the recent porch looks my house has had….

I hope I’ve given you some new ideas and inspiration for front porch decor.

Heber City UTBRA

Heber City puts on such great races. It rained the day before the race and the groundsmen were out mucking all the outdoor stalls. They definitely go above and beyond to keep the facility nice. Luckily, Heber has a nice indoor pen so the ground is never horrible.

Barrel races are so much fun because not only do we as barrel racers get to compete doing what we love, but we also get to spend time with the amazing people in the barrel racing community.

All of my best friends are people that I’ve met through barrel racing and rodeo. You couldn’t find a better group of people if you tried.

Both of my horses worked great for me in Heber. We still have work to do and plenty of room to excel. Barrel races/competition runs show the competitors the areas in which they can improve. The improvements are something to work towards and grow together as a team.

I’m pretty lucky to have the teammates I do right now. I can’t wait to see what our future holds.
