January 2011

Our family has decided that 2011 is going to be one of our greatest years ever and it has already taken off with a bang! We were fortunate enough to have Jeremy's parents come and be with us for nearly a whole week early in January. We greatly enjoyed having them here with us talking, going out to eat, and swimming at their hotel. The kids loved the pool and hot tub and entertained the adults with incredibly painful, but hilarious belly flops. They had enormous red marks to prove their fun!

Scentsy is doing a Spring Sprint training tour all over the US this month and next. My sister, Andi and I, were able to attend in Portland along with one of my fabulous Scentsy Director's, Christa Gefke. We had a great time and learned a lot!

Jeremy is feeling absolutely amazing and has more energy than ever since his surgery in December. He is quite the father and is always teaching our boys how to be men. Together they created this awesome hook board for the kids to hang their after school things on in the garage. It is pretty sweet!

Avery has finished ballet and has decided that she would like to try her hand in something new: gymnastics. She starts this week and is very excited about it. She is even going to be writing a report about her new activity for school.

The last week of January we were blessed to have my awesome brother, Michael Jensen, and his family come stay with us for my birthday. We had the best night watching Brian Regan live and laughed our heads off at his great comedy. Our kids got along perfectly and it was such a pleasure having them in our home. It ended much too quickly!

I have always enjoyed cooking, but my love for it is growing by the day! I am always looking for new things to create and enjoy with my family.

I turned 32 on the 29th of January and I must say that it was the best darn birthday ever! I was surrounded by my favorite people and loved soaking it all in. I think 32 is my favorite age so far. My darling friend, Erin Case, sent me this beautiful hand-crocheted hat...isn't it just cute?! One of my best friends from high school, Yvonne, has an incredibly talented husband, Malo. He hand designed and cut this GORGEOUS iron wall hanging for me. It now resides prominently in my bathroom above the jetted tub where I can stare at it for as long as my bubbles will float!


  1. What a fun month! That artwork Malo made is stunning!

  2. wow sounds like you guys are starting 2011 with a bang and lots of stuff going on.

  3. I like your presents, especially the iron work. I'm glad Jeremy is feeling better.

  4. I can't believe how your family has grown! It looks like you guys are doing great!! Hope to see you around!

  5. What a fun month. You really had a great birthday and received some awesome gifts. I can't wait to see your iron artwork - and the hat is so adorable. Your friends are so thoughtful. And you can tell Jeremy is feeling better - he's back to organizing his garage!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
