Local Businesses From: Our Home To: Yours and Amber Lyn Chocolates

I love local businesses, especially in this economic environment. I cannot tell you how many times I have lost bids on jobs because of someone overseas. I believe people outside of this country are extremely talented and perform great work. It is nice though to see work done in our home country because it helps the economy!

That being said I have found 2 AMAZING companies:

From: Our Home To: Yours is a super cute website for home decor. It has all the cool LDS products as well, like Families Are Forever Sign, Follow The Prophet, I am Child of God, etc. Plus you can do those cool personalized signs with your last name and established date and they will have vinyl designs soon where you can easily place cool sayings on your walls without having to ruin the paint or leave nail marks. From: Our Home To: Yours was started in Springville, UT. One of my favorite cities! I love the people in Springville.

Next is Amber Lyn Chocolates. They are located in St. George, UT. Let me just say.....THIS IS THE BEST HEALTHIEST CHOCOLATE I have ever tasted. I was floored when I took a bite into this sugar free chocolate! It was amazing, and the best part is, it's natural. It does not have all that aspartame/splendid junk that is so horrible for your body. It uses maltitol which is derived from wheat. I love chocolate, but I know it can pack on the calories so I wanted to try a healthier chocolate and I was expecting it to taste disgusting, but honestly it was the best chocolate I have ever tasted. Plus I have so many friends that are diabetic and cannot have gluten, so this was a pleasant surprise to know they can enjoy this chocolate! I'm telling you now this awesome product and I'm sure this would be a pleasant gift for mother's day!

April Bliss

April has been a beautiful and fun month. One day the weather is perfect and the next day it will snow. Either way we have been playing outside. Jackson has been falling asleep on our walks.

Jackson loves his new wheels! We love craigslist for finding second hand toys!

Here's El Guapo. I say this is Jackson's version of the "Edward Cullen" stare.

We had a BLAST coloring eggs. I kept telling Jackson be soft when you put the egg in the bowl and he would drop it like an atom bomb! I couldn't help but laugh. All of the eggs cracked, but they were still delicious! Jackson LOVES eggs and so do I. However we are not huge fans of the tute smell you get from hard boiled eggs :)

This is Bentley!!! This is Jon & Laura's adorable little boy. He is only 2 days on in this picture. He is such a cute little guy and a great baby!
