A lot of people have been asking me where they can get my new pieces. I am now in Graeber and Company, Montage Studio, Two Rivers and Posh Boutique. At this time I do not use a website but do mostly custom orders.  Please E-mail me at for custom order inquiries. 

{Mrs. Idaho United States}

Ok friends. It's official. I will be competing for the title of Mrs. Idaho United States on February 1st. I'd love all the support I can get! Having the support of my friends and family really is like the 12th man in the NFL. It really pushes me to be my best.
As you know I already competed in the Mrs. Idaho pageant in 2011 and won. I went on to Nationals and placed top ten which had only ever been done once by Idaho. It was a very proud moment for both me and Josh. Some say why not just stop there?  For me, the pageant industry is not about outer beauty. But about personal goals strength and the desire to better yourself. I am ready to win Mrs. Idaho United States and have one more try at Nationals to take my platform Nationwide.

{Jivaro Christmas Party 2012}

Well, we are all done with the 3 nights of Jivaro Christmas parties. Josh's Company really goes all out and spoils us rotten. But now all I can think is now we can really relax! Two weeks of Christmas vacation for Josh and lots of family time. We want to take a little trip during the vacation with the kids. What do you recommend? We have no idea where to go!

{New Craving}

Ok. I have to admit something. After first Thursday with Eyecandy.... I am addicted to her macarons. I am literally dreaming about them. Ashley owner and creator of Eyecandy Event Design makes
 them herself. She told me how it has taken her YEARS to pull of the perfect macaron. I am purchasing them as gifts for all of the guys in my husbands office this year. I may even buy myself an early Christmas present as well! If you would like to view the website click HERE

OK.  So I know this is old news to most. But, I thought i'd share what I think is the  best salon in the world. Montage Studio Salon in Boise, and In Eagle. I have been getting my hair done there since we moved here just about 5 years ago. Recently my favorite things were the oh so famous "Ombre" It was the best hair have ever had (upper right photo) UNTIL......I had about 12 inches cut off for a more edgy look. And now I love love love my new hair make-over. I recommend this salon with 5 stars. I get mine done by the owner Alex Fretwell, but ALL of the stylists are great. He personally trains them all and promotes continuing education so the stylists are always in the know about new fashion and styles. I have NEVER been un-happy with an experience at Montage. ITS A MUST TRY!

My friends are my family. Enough said.

{Family Vacation to Carlsbad California}

Here is a quick preview of our trip to Carlsbad. We were lucky enough to stay at the Four Seasons for a week while we spoiled the kids rotten with Disneyland, Seaworld, Oceanside, The movies, and spent some time with Their Uncle Bentley and Aunt Danielle. It was a really nice trip and they MORE than deserved it.  It was also Becks first time to the ocean. He loved the feeling of the sand between his toes. He even ate some :)



Beckham is growing up SO fast. I can't believe how much faster it goes by the second time around. He is so different than Madden was as a baby. Both so unique and different. Beckham is so smiley and such a flirt. He is into EVERYTHING!  I am enjoying him so much that sometimes I think we should have just one more. Maybe.

{Happy 4th Birthday to my precious son Madden}

Maddens Birthday turned out to be an entire weekend of fun. We started with a Birthday party at Jump Time and he was in Heaven with all of his little friends. It was so sweet to see him enjoying his special day.
He got his FIRST bike and Josh put it together for him. He learned to ride already and is loving it. Also, on his birthday he graduated from Leapfrog to Seahorse in his swimming class. Proud mommy moment!
We also went camping and our friends took us out on their boat. They are professional wake surfers and Madden wanted to learn so badly. Our friend Jimmi was nice enough to give him a little lesson :) Madden is so brave.

Last weekend Josh and I attended the Fusion Magazine One year anniversary Red Carpet Event. We did the VIP thing and spent time with a couple friends. It was a great night. Doesn't my husband look handsome!

{Maddens Hero}

Madden LOVES Spider Man. So, here is what I have been up to in his room. For Christmas he got a bunch of Fat head wall decals. I don't know if you have ever heard of them but they are AWESOME and they are huge! We literally hung up ALL of the spider man decals  in his room. Here are a few.
This one is above his bed.

                       This one is above his toy box and takes up almost the entire wall!

Here is a project we did together. We bought the M letter at Joannes for $9 and Some Martha Stewart Glitter paint at Home Depot in Pomegranate red for $5 and painted it together. 

Here is what I am eyeing for his bed. Maybe for his birthday?

{Sometimes I feel like a nut}

Every since I got pregnant with Madden I have been so forgetful. That means I am going on almost 5 y ears of feeling completely crazy. Almost amnesia like. I'm serious. It's only gotten worse since I was pregnant with Beckham and now seems to be at it's worst.  Some of the the things I have forgotten lately.....
I forgot the bananas in the banana bread.
forgot to take madden his lunch when I was on my way to his school JUST to give him his lunch
Several appointments. I swear I need them to write them down, then I need to put them on the calendar and then get a confirmation call. Even then, the day comes and I say, wow, I feel like there is something I am forgetting.
And, I am the queen of walking into a room ten times only to realize I have no idea what I was going in it for.
Most recently, I forgot to send the paper to Vital Statistics for Becks Birth Certificate. This has resulted in the fact that we may not get to go to Costa Rica and Panama in 3 weeks. Need I say more??? Where oh where do our minds go when we have children, because I'd kindly like to ask for mine back.

{Beckham 8 weeks}

{Here's what we've been up to}

As most of you know, Baby Beckham was born on February 15th. So, in other words...There has been complete lack of sleep in the Bear house. But, we are getting through it! Josh is so amazingly supportive and such a great daddy. This time around seems too easy and a bit flawless. Needless to say, I am madly in love with the new addition to our family. Nikki is still playing Competitive soccer for the u12 rush club team and Madden has taken after his daddy and is starting to golf. So, the kids have really been keeping us busy. Even though all of tired days sleepless nights and keeping the kiddos entertained, Josh and I have managed to go on several dates and I even started joining him at the gym. I recently got to spend a "girls" night in Sun Valley with a good friend and Josh played mom while I was gone. He is truly my hero! Brave guy to do it all, but he did it perfectly and lived through it! He is looking forward to his trip coming up to Turks for some friends wedding and I get to spend almost a week visiting with my mom, yay!

{Protect Idaho Kids Fashion Show Fundraiser}

Today I went to the Protect Idaho Kids Spring Fashion Show Fundraiser at the Cotton Wood Grille Where Nikki and Josh Volunteered their time as models for Dillards. It was a great time and the show went off without a hitch. Who knew I was married to a male model? I'm so proud of my family for being active members in our community and for donating their time for such an amazing cause.
