My two brothers wives had babies recently!! My oldest brother, Jason, and his wife Ashley are actually at the hospital right now. They had their second girl, Beverly Rose Powell just a few hours ago. She is so cute! Born at 10:37am, 8lbs 4oz, 20.5 inches long.

And I know this one was awhile ago, but my brother Bobby, and his wife Abbie, had their first kid on Halloween, Major Robert Powell. He is a cutie too. Weighing in at 7lbs 3 oz and 20 inches long with lots of dark hair.

Maybe I'm getting a little baby hungry :) They are just too darn cute to resist!

New Tent

For those who read our random blog when we actually update it, you may remember us telling about our adventure in Coyote Gulch where our brand new tent got demolished by a wicked storm, wind, rain, snow, everything you can possibly imagine. We have been wanting a new tent, but a NICE one, that would hold up in that kind of weather. We have been looking at black diamond, mountain hardwear, marmot, and a few other mountain brands that we love. But those tents are so expensive! We're talking $400+ for a small, 2 person 3 season tent. Are they worth that much money? Defnitely. If we were rich, we would have gotten one a LONG time ago. But we're not spilling money out of our pockets quite yet :) However, we DID find a tent last week! A nice Marmot tent for our backpacking adventures. We are in love. We got the Marmot Crib 2P 3Season tent with footprint for half the price! We were so excited! We love shopping on For those who don't know, it is a website with daily deals...or more deals by the minute? It is sweet. They will put up a product at an awesome price for a certain amount of time and with limited stock. You can purchase until the time is up or the product is sold out. steep and cheap is more sports and outdoor gear, but there are many other deal of the day websites you can visit by going to
. Well, back to our tent. It has welded seams so water/rain will not leak through, and so much more. We can't wait to use it!


I just have to take a second to brag about my husband. He is such a sweetheart. Last week, I walked out to my car after work, and he had left this on my windshield.

What a surprise! And we loved the little flowers that took place of the typical baby's breath. I loved my flower(s) and I love Scott. He is so good to me!
