Alright, so I am not a good blogger. I always remember that I would like to sit down and write , but can never seem to find the right time. But I was on here this morning reading and thought why not :)

This past months seems to have gone by in a flash . Logan will be 2 in a few weeks and reminds us of this daily. He is an almost non stop all of fun , the other day I asked him what he wanted for lunch and he said "ketchup" , he loves ketchup for some reason ( I think of you every time Kortney ) I do not like ketchup , I could go without, but he is hooked, the other day at McDonald's he was dipping his apples in it .

He's been trying to sing his ABC's but it ends up sounding more like " A -B - B - B- E - E -E" , but at least he's trying :)

We are getting ready to go home in few weeks and I am really excited. I miss home more than anything. I am really looking forward to spending time with my friends and family :)

Logan is at such a fun age I know he's going to have a blast !!

Any way , not much planned for today , doing some laundry and maybe having craft time in a bit with Logan. It's raining so that means no park. Think that's all for now Logan is hanging on my leg asking for a snack

Leaving you with a little picture I put together of Logan's first 2 years , he's grown so much :)

I Lie . . . .

Alright so in saying I would blog before the end of that week, I was a big liar :)

As a part of my whole trying to find some time for myself, even a little, I have started tanning, and I am loving it. It's nice to go lay and be warm and cozy for a little while, and also getting some color it's bad either :)
Logan has been sick on and off over the past few weeks, then today I saw his 2 yr molars coming in , in the back. So that could explain a good bit of it , either way it's made life that much more "fun".

On top of everything our computer just shut off on sunday, just bloop and nothing. . . so we took it in, for the 8th time in 4 years , I am so upset , these people are just crazy, and we've seemed to have nothing but trouble with the computer since we got it, so I hope that they just give us our money at this point or give us a new computer . . .I don't know, booooo.
Also we booked our tickets to come home this summer, and I am SO excited !!! I miss my friends and family SOO much . I don't really know a whole lot of people out here, not being mormon kind of keeps me out of play groups and mom circles which really limits the amount of moms and friends I know. So it's always nice to go home to the people who love you no matter what :P

I should get going ,but before I do, the other day we went to the park, it was such a beautiful day and the sun was out, Logan loves to be outside and had a great time running around, so here's some pictures from the fun ! Wishing everyone a great weekend !!!

Time keeps on slipping . . .

Alright so we're only to the end of Feb. and I'm already behind on my blogging goals ! There have been so many times over the past week or two that I've wanted to sit down , but always find myself doing something else. So ANY WAY . . . . .
I've been going a little nuts this past week,

Logan has started going to bed between 10 -11 and getting up by 5 . . . I am an extreme non morning person so getting up at 5 is REALLY hard for me and what's more is I feel like I'm getting no sleep and don't tend to function very well like that. I feel like I've tried everything I can think of , we've even tried to have him sleep in our bed , and I know the transition from crib to toddler bed will take a while , but how much longer can it really last ?? Grrr , I don't know . ANY WAY , I guess this is one of the fun things that comes with being a parent :)

I have been feeling these past months that there are just so many things I have set out to do that I'm not able to finish or even start for that matter, I feel so unbalanced !
So my Goal for the next month is find the healthy balance between being a mommy , a wife and being me. Obviously being a mom is my first and foremost , but I feel like I don't take ANY time for me, and when that happens I start to feel SO overwhelmed so I need to figure it out :)
Any way , that's enough complaining !!! I should get going, got to get dinner started. But I WILL blog again before the end of the week . . I will !!!! :)

Don't eat the yellow snow !

Today we got a fresh foot of snow to Logan's delight, he LOVES the snow :P So I took him out to play, he just dove face first into the snow laughing it was pretty funny. Some how he figured out the snow wasn't all that bad to eat and spent the rest of the day doing so :)

I amazes me , the energy he can have after such little amounts of sleep. Last night it felt like he was up every other hour , I think my sleep totaled 3 1/2 hours ! But there he is running around like a crazy boy in the snow :) Children truly are resilient!

P.S. - Took a few pictures, tried to post them but it's not working, guess I'll check back later and try and add them then !

Snow Day

Over this past week we got dumped on snow wise, our first big snow since my brother's been here , which inspired him to take Logan out to play in the snow. We really haven't taken him out in the snow a whole lot because he doesn't like to keep his winter wear ( hat, coats , gloves ) on. So when Jed took him out yesterday it was really his first snow day, and he went nuts ! He was running around,he loved the crunching sound the snow made when he stepped on it, kicking it with his feet
. . and then he found a snow ball and all was lost " ball , ball !! " till he picked it up, then it was "cold mommy " , it was so cute.
Jed took him around in the sled,and the look on his face said, I am SO grown up right now :)
It was so much fun to see him explore the snow, what is feels like, tastes like , how truly cold it is on your hands. In the end he threw quite a fit when I took him in , but deep down I think he was happy to get warm .

Trying something new

My name is Sarah, I am 24 and living in the crazy state of Utah. I am married to TJ Hartlaub and we have a wonderful little boy named Logan who will be 2 in June.

If you know me in any kind of way , you know that I'm over all a private person. I can count on one hand the number of friends to whom my life is pretty much an open book and that's the extent of my sharing. But this year I told myself I would open up , share more, learn more, be more open to life. So read at your own risk !

That's all for now !
