2014 Review

Looking back on our year, I feel incredibly blessed. 2014 brought many adventures, but my favorite of all those adventures was marrying Andrew in April and then finding out a few months later that we were expecting! I think 2015 will bring just as many adventures as we become a family of three. Only good things ahead for the Snow family.

Here is our past year at a glance:

Pregnancy Freebies

If there's one thing I've learned thus far in pregnancy, it's that babies need so. much. crap. At first it doesn't seem like too much stuff, but it slowly piles up (and adds up, babies ain't cheap). In my quest to be thrifty in this whole gestation process, I've stumbled upon a few great freebies. Most of these things you can get absolutely free, all you have to pay is the shipping costs. Usually these promo codes can be used without limit. That means you can buy one for yourself, one for a baby shower gift, and one just for the heck of it. I mean, free stuff! Why not?

Mesa Temple Lights

Andrew and I spend most weekends at home watching The Office on Netflix for the umpteenth time. This Saturday, we actually were social and went out to dinner with friends. Afterwards, we stopped by the Mesa Temple Lights and snapped a few pictures. It was a great night hanging out with Bryon, Cassidy, Lanni, Hannah, and Kent.
