courtneysnowden He picked out a special heart shaped sucker bouquet for a "really cute friend" but then his little nerves got the best of him and he just couldn't muster up the courage to put it in her Valentine box. And thanks to @smallfryblog for their hilarious box idea. Because last night at midnight, I just didn't have it in me to start constructing some over the top crazy creative Pinterest worthy roller coaster contraption. #smallfrydiy 2d

courtneysnowden I'm quite FAWN'd of you my DEER! ️ This weekend I went to the cutest Galentines cookie exchange party thrown by my friend @3dottersvintage. I'm not ashamed to admit that I'm not the greatest cook. It's not that I can't cook, it's just that being creative in the kitchen isn't really my thing. So dipping these store bought Oreos into melted white chocolate and showering them with valentines sprinkles was pretty much a "homemade" win for me...stretching the term "homemade" to new levels! Thanks Pinterest #valentinesday #acolorstory #thepioneerwoman #alexandani 6d

courtneysnowden A #tbt to last years Valentines mantel. Because I have yet to get one "lovey dovey" thing out and I could use some "lovey dovey" in my life. It's been grey and snowy and freezing for days and I think red and pink and hearts just might do the trick. And because I wanted you guys to know that I really like you... #IHeartHomeDecor 1w

courtneysnowden When I turned 11, the "must have" toys were Cabbage Patch Dolls, Teddy Ruxpins, and Rubik's Cubes. None of which I got btw! (Thanks a lot mom) I think it's safe to say that the "must have" toys have changed a wee bit since the 1980's. #happybirthdaySmith #hoverboard Can you remember the toy you just HAD to have or you'd DIE??? 2w
  •   lesm6 Lol I'll take it! @whytehousefam 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @meesheshell reading all these comments have TOTALLY brought back memories for me too! 2w
  •   courtneysnowden @simplyradiant oh your boys always look darling! Smith hates jeans, apparently they're not "comfy." Last fall, Shawn Whites line @target had sweatpant joggers and I bought every single style they had. I'm not sure if they still have them but the boy section @target has really cute stuff! I also love the graphic T's and sweatshirts at Peek kids, but they're pretty pricey. 2w
  •   vintagecube @courtneysnowden I Sanrio. I would've envied you're eraser collection!! I was a pencil collector myself 2w
  •   bringingmannersback @simplyradiant my target has the Shawn white jogger sweatpants for 30 percent off right now!! And @courtneysnowden I'm so glad to hear there's another boy out there that won't wear jeans! My boys hate jeans and it drives me crazy. Don't even get me started on church pants. 2w
  •   lauraknaier @courtneysnowden that globe collection!! 2w
  •   watkinsteam Right? I'm gonna need a job just to keep up! When I was 11 all I wanted was an 8 ball. I still have yet to own one. 1w

courtneysnowden 11 years ago today, while a million snowflakes fell outside the hospital window, we welcomed this chubby cheeked, grey eyed, baby bird to the world. It seems fitting and nostalgic and absolutely perfect that we woke up to a million snowflakes outside our window this morning too. I know most of you Utahns are waaaay over the snow, but it couldn't have been a better birthday surprise for our little sledding obsessed birthday boy. So high fives to Mother Nature or Snow Miser or Elsa, whoever made it happen, thanks for making wishes come true! And Happy Happy Blizzard-y Birthday to our little snowman Smith ☃️🌨 2w

courtneysnowden Sometimes when you're being super duper rude to each other, your dad makes you hold hands for 10 very loooooong minutes until you can get along, and then your mom actually follows through with her threats of "Keep showin' out and I'm going to post this!" #18monthsapart 3w

courtneysnowden Some nights I lie in bed tossing and turning, the wheels in my head spinning, wondering if I'm raising these kids "right." I know I'm teaching them the obvious things, but am I teaching them to be courageous? Am I teaching them to stand up for what's right, even when it's hard. Dr. King's quote "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy" has been swirling around in my head all day. This is one of those things that keeps me up at night. I hope and pray I'm teaching them this. I hope I'm instilling in them how important this is. I hope today wasn't just another day off for you. I hope you thought, even for just a minute, about the significance of today. Even if you feel like "it doesn't really affect me" believe me...it does. #martinlutherking 4w

courtneysnowden My stitched clique. I made this about 4 years ago and just came across it buried deep in an unpacked box. Seeing all the things that made them "them" gets me all nostalgic for my "littler" littles. Smith's blue (ugly doll) monster that was once his constant companion now sits untouched on the top bunk. Blythe's pink skates that basically had to be surgically removed from her feet at the end of each day have long ago been sent off to the thrift store. Sibley's still singing, I suppose not too much has changed for that little momma. Christian hasn't worn his beloved #15 in 2 years (being an underclassmen sometimes stinks) and thanks to modern technology, those headphones on Dre's head are now wireless. I've retired my "momiform" of a mustard striped shirt, gray cardigan and red Toms, and replaced it with workout clothes all day erry day (that I still don't workout in) We just celebrated our Zoe pups 13th birthday, we're so happy she's still around. And Will is still Will...the center of our family, the glue that holds us all together. Freezing this moment in time was absolutely worth all the millions and millions of frustrating unpicked stitches 1mon

courtneysnowden I took down their little tree, packed up the angel collection from their dresser, and wiped the Merry Christmas doodles from their chalkboard wall...all while they wailed "noooo Mom, Christmas foreverrrrrrr!!!" So they've revolted, declared that they're super mad at me and vowed to wear their Christmas jammie's until the end of time. #ABMathome 1mon

courtneysnowden Today Smith told me that he kinda hates my coat because I look like Cruella de Vil and I should probably definitely never ever wear it again. Welllllllll how about them apples? ...the kid is about as subtle as a knuckle sammich to the face 🏼 1mon

courtneysnowden When my girls whined about it being way too cold to sled with Smith, I gave them a finger wagging lecture about how people from all over the world come to Utah to see these mountains and how lucky they are to have them basically right in their backyard. That even our braggy license plates say "Greatest Snow on Earth" so they should be thankful that they have snow to play in because a lot of kids aren't that lucky. (I might've taken it a little too far with that one) But it got them outside, so here's to guilt tripping your kids #beUTAHful 1mon
  •   jessicaghuber So true. We are in Silicon Valley and my son asked if he could wish for snow. I told him to wish away!!! 1mon
  •   pollydove And it got you a SUPER cute picture out of the lecture too!!! 1mon
  •   watkinsteam Lol! And my kids were complaining about the ocean being too cold today. 1mon
  •   mrs.pager So true though! We are in sunny Australia and would die to come to see the snow!!! ️ lucky kids! 🏾 1mon
  •   wildflowerwears We had that same talk over here 1mon
  •   kcsnead My Florida kids dream about making snowmen and waking up to a canceled day of school! Good job mama! 1mon
  •   kcsnead And hail to the redskins!!!! 1mon
  •   elizabethandelias Hahaha! Truth I'm from the northeast but my honey is from Miami. Our children know nothing but sandals and shorts all year! This snow is dreamy 4w

courtneysnowden Tucked away in the snowy mountains just above @sundanceresort, sits my parents "Kindernest." It's been a place for our family to gather and to make memories that we will forever hold close to our hearts. We have been blessed by this sweet A-frame and are now bidding a fond adieu to her. Mountain living for my almost 80 year old parents is getting a little tough, so they've (with sad sad hearts) decided it's time to let another family build cherished memories here. They've put this gem on the market, so if anyone knows anyone...DM me if you'd like more info 2mon

courtneysnowden One of Will's requests for his birthday was that I not make him pose for a picture. Geesh, the nerve So instead, here is a picture of his teeny tiny little 3 year old self, smiling for the camera like a champ. The man this little nugget grew up to be is pretty much the best thing that ever happened to me. Happy Birthday Will Tom, you literally had me at hello. 2mon
