I’m Lynette, the voice behind the posts here, on instagram and our Facebook Page. I’m not really like Ellie in the bubbly, chatty way at first, but, get to know me and I can be. Although, I do love me some overalls, like, I’m obsessed with them. Wasn’t Ellie’s sooo cute?!! I love my Carl like Ellie though. I am madly in love!
So, who are we?
We are a family of four + one pup & a cat. We love our colorful house. It literally was our dream house. (I will write about this Love/The Secret Story one day.) Cross my heart. 😉 We love to play games and explore Utah. We love living in Utah, it is a gorgeous state! If you haven’t visited here, you need to! We LOVE theme parks and to travel. We love water, thawed or frozen; so put us on the mountain for snowboarding or the sea for snorkeling or surfing, we’re there.
I’m married to a bearded, retired Coastie. He is THE best husband, father, friend you could ask for. He is a hard-worker and kind man. His adventures are insane. He loves to run in the mountains and snowboard and I happen to think that he’s the best at it. Where are his sponsors at for that? Because snow people – he is so talented? For real!! He makes me laugh every day and is always there. I freaking LOVE him!
I’m a proud Mama to an outgoing, dancer & artist, mer-girl who is very Merida-like and also to a blue-loving boy on the autism spectrum, who loves video games like Mario Bros. & Minecraft and figuring out how things work. My kids are my everything. I love being around them. When they are on school break, it makes me happy. I love my bedtime routine time with them because it’s so special with both of them. Let them be little.
I’m also a mountain lovin’ mermaid obsessed with frozen fractal-covered trees (they make me cry – the good kind). It melts my heart when my littles refer to me as Mama. I adore swimming, snowboarding, Disney, peonies, roses, and my roots in Norway. One day, we are going to have an great wide adventure there!! My addiction to chocolate is a bit much.
We have a puppy named Piper, she came from a shiba rescue group. She is a Shiba Inu. She has brought us a lot of joy since our old dog, Dakota, passed away after Christmas 2016. We also adopted an adult cat, Mila, from our local shelter for our son. She is a talker and has taken a liking to me and him. She actually calls for me: “Mom, mom mom!” and brings me gifts (ALL of Piper’s toys from her toy basket) EVERY SINGLE NIGHT to my bedside.
Talking Disney is one of my favorite things, well all things Disney, let’s be honest. When people quote Disney Pixar films, I get giddy. I have always been this way, it makes my heart smile and my body gets instant goosebumps. I’m VERY shy though, so I do get nervous talking to people. I have a hard time taking pictures of myself. I smile with my mouth closed. I LOVE tattoos. Yoga is a BIG part of my life and I just recently got my YTT 200 hrs. I love to garden; I think this also helps with any Mama worries too.
I hope the things I have shared and opened up about here on my blog have brought you joy, insight, or a little dose of Disney into your life. I hope our home brings you a little bit of magic while you are visiting Utah. Watching our Disney People below will help you see a little more about us too.
Wishing you the Best Day Ever.
