I started doing photography this year and I LOVE it!! I just had a photoshoot with some of my dancer friends and it was so much fun! I've been so grateful for all that I've learned this year! It is such a fun job and it lets me be with Ammon the entire time he's here!  So! Keep me in mind for your kiddos and family pictures ;) But, really. Check these girls out - I'm so jealous of them :D

mmm delicious!!

Every year Ammon's family has Christmas on the 23rd :) It's so nice to be able to be with everyone - no one being at their in laws.  It's quickly becoming a tradition that for every Bradshaw get together I bring my nacho dip - it's Ammon's all time favorite! Sometimes he'll ask to me to make it for dinner :) haha when you see the recipe you'll understand why I don't :) So! Here is the most amazing nacho dip that will have all your friends and family dying for more :) I only make it for special occasions so I figure while I'm making it today, I'd snap some pictures and share with all my little nacho secret :D

For my sister in laws and some friends I made recipe cards of the dishes that I get asked about the most - so here are a few!! They are all on Ammon's favorite foods list :D Merry Christmas!!

* excuse all the typos haha :D - and I wish I was that cute, but the cards are courtesy of Shabby Princess

Our New Apartment - Part Deux

We're all moved in!! It's sooo nice to be back in Santa Clara.  I was a little apprehensive about moving in with the parentals, but it's been the best!  I'm going to brag and say that my husband is the greatest ever.  I can't wait til we can build a house together, because he is so talented! And I hate to say it, but he has better taste than I do ;)  I was too lazy to get out a real camera to snap these pictures, so they're off my phone and also too lazy to clean up :) But you'll get the general idea! So - here's our almost finished apartment! We love it! You'll have to excuse our sad Christmas tree - I don't really care for Christmas - in face I think we could totally do with out it.  Ammon LOVES it.  hahaha so I tried my darndest to "decorate".  I just don't care ;) haha. I think I prove that point by how messy our apartment is ;)
kitchen sink!

our kitchen cabinets - they're a gray-blue with a copper glaze :) This picture doesn't do them justice!

kitchen - still a mess, but we're working on it

Our New Apartment - part 1

Here's what has been going on lately! Ammon got a new job!! In Page, AZ.... yeah it sucks!! I miss him so much when he is gone - I really took for granted all the time we got to spend together before!  He's there 4 days a week - sometimes more, never less.  So, we decided to move to Page!  We were apartment hunting and couldn't find ANYTHING - and I mean nothing!!! We did find one place (2 bedroom, one bath, no garage, no yard - in the ghetto) for $950 a month! We were both like uhhhh I guess we'll think about it and pray and try back later?  Rent and the cost of living out there is unbelievable!  We thought about it, and prayed quite a bit about it - and decided that we would stay in St. George, and Ammon would commute (2 of his brothers work at the same place, and that's what they do).  Since I would be home alone a lot, my parents offered their apartment to us! It's above the game room - away from the main house, so it is perfect for us! I won't be so alone in our less than friendly part of town, and our bills will be a lot lower :) win win!!  The only thing was that it wasn't finished yet! So - Ammon and I have been working the past few weeks to get it into living shape (and when I say Ammon and I - what I really mean is Ammon). I'm glad I thought to take before pictures - because the transformation really was awesome!!  Here's what the apartment looked like a few weeks ago:

living room!

kitchen ;) haha you don't believe me, huh?!



this is the entry way  - I took this mainly to show the floor :)
 My parents have been using it as storage space and a second office, so there was stuff everywhere! They were nice enough to find new homes for everything so we can live there :D My parents really are the best in the whole wide world!!

Stay tuned for the after shots!! The whole apartment should be finished later today! :D
