Enjoying: Life Lately

Wow! I stumbled across this blog this morning that has been somewhat abandoned over the last (almost) year. The last time I posted was right after Christmas break last year and so many wonderful things have happened since then… too good not to share with the rest of the world! :)

We had just found out at Thanksgiving last year that "baby Dent" would be a girl and this aunt was ecstatic! On Sunday April 17, my sister and brother-in-law went in to begin the induction process, and like all normal families we all went with them :). So there we were ALL day Sunday and ALL day Monday with no baby. We waited…
 and waited…
 and waited some more...

But on Tuesday, April 19 at 5:58 PM the wait was totally worth it. THE most beautiful baby girl made her grand entrance to meet her crazy family :)

I knew the aunt life would be good… I just didn't know it would be this good :)

I seriously couldn't love the girl more if I tried! I had no idea that one little tiny life could bring so much joy to mine! 

As if that wasn't enough good news on its own, on September 10th my guy got down on his knee and asked me to spend forever with him!

Blessed beyond measure and cannot wait to make him my husband! 

I have been wedding planning, finishing up OT school (graduating December 10th), and we are in the process of buying our first home! :)

I am beyond thankful for this wonderful season in my life and not taking one single second for granted :)


Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
    his love endures forever.

Home for the Holidays

I had a fabulous post almost completed of my year in review until I realized that it didn't save... no way I was going back and uploading all of those pictures again so the post just got deleted. Anyway, 2015 was a great year with lots of new memories and I'm excited about what is to come in 2016. 

Since that post was deleted, I wanted to at least get my pictures from the holidays on the blog. Here is what my Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve looked like this year.


I got home the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and we had the Hall Thanksgiving that night. On Thursday we had lunch with Anthony's family and then supper with mine. 

The day after we found out Ally Grace is a girl!

Can't wait for a cute little girl to be wearing this outfit next Thanksgiving!

We went "Black Friday" shopping with the Wilsons... Karley wasn't very happy about it but was a trooper for sure!

Then it was back to school for finals to wrap up the semester. I watched way too many Hallmark Christmas movies this year and don't regret a single second of it...

 Hall Christmas at Amy's the Saturday before Christmas

 The Sunday afternoon of Christmas week we went to the ASF to see A Christmas Carol

On Christmas Eve we went to the service at church and then home to eat with the Wilsons and play games... sad that we didn't take any pictures of the Halls/Wilsons this year :(

Christmas Day

New Year's Eve
On NYE, Jess and Cody had their gender reveal and had planned to shoot either pink or blue fireworks for the reveal and it's...

...another GIRL!!!!

So thankful for the past year with this guy and looking forward to 2016 with him!

...and can't wait to meet my niece in April! ;)

 Winter break is coming to an end and I'm excited about starting my LAST semester of classes... EVER!!!!
