Easton Mark Allred has arrived! He made his way into this world August 6th @ 9.1 lbs and 21.5" long! He is such a good baby. He likes eating, taking long naps, eating again, and pooping @ 3 am! We are having so much fun with him! I can't believe how fast he is growing already!

Just wanted to thank everyone for their support and prayers. Sorry we haven't had much time to talk on the phone, but just knowing that you called means a lot!

Thanks Mom for coming out for 2 whole weeks to help us adjust to our new life! We miss you and love you so much!

Thanks Judy for driving all the way out here to deliver baby shower gifts and for jumping on the plane as soon as you could to come help and be with us in the hospital! We love you so much!

Thanks Randy, Bob, Scott and Collin for coming to the hospital and helping out with everything. It meant so much to have you all here!

It's a BOY!

It's a BOY!

We finally found out on Thursday, March 5th, that we are expecting a baby boy! We are so excited! We both thought it would be a girl so it was a huge shock to us! After the ultrasound, we called our families and told them the news. Then we were off to shop for our little guy! It makes it so fun and real to know what your having! I can't believe I'm going to be a mom! It's starting to sink in! What really makes it sink in is the little fluttering I've been feeling lately. He is so active! We always say he's just a swimin' in there!
Here are some pics of the ultrasound and the shopping spree we went on! The top ultrasound is of his boyhood, the middle one is his profile, and the bottom one is his tiny foot!

We're Pregnant!

We're pregnant! It's official! I've waited the appropriate time and now it's safe to tell everyone that we are finally pregnant! All of that practicing finally paid off! I'm almost 10 weeks along. The baby will be due August 13th!
I have been dealing with all of the fun symptoms of pregnancy, morning sickness, exhaustion, dizziness, and hunger! Why do they call it Morning sickness when I feel it all day and night? Luckily my dr. told me to take Unisom and my prenatals at night. That seems to be working for me. Although whenever I do feel sick I just say a quick prayer of thanks that everything is ok. When I feel sick it makes me realize that my baby is doing great!
We have so many nicknames for our little one. Mark and his friends from school named it 'Maverick Danger' and unfortunately that name has stuck with his family as well. My family calls it 'the little zygote'. I call it my 'Twilight Baby' because when I get hungry I feel like it's eating me alive!
I hope everyone out there is doing well and I hope you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!

My New Invention!

I know I'm not the greatest at blogging, but I've just been very busy! I recently moved my salon into my home. The transition has been very time consuming, but is finally pacing out.

I do have something to blog about today however! As some of you know I like to experiment with designing clothes and accessories. Recently I came up with an idea that I love so much I just had to share. It's becoming pretty popular so I have decided to make it into a small business. It's called 'Skinny Me Jeans'. It's a body sculpting band that I sew directly into your favorite pair of jeans. It comfortably holds your love handles in while keeping your jeans up and hiding your underwear, or for some "Crack"!

While I was experimenting I decided to try it on my least favorite pair of jeans. I had bought True Religions and accidently shrunk them in the dryer. It shrunk the rise of the jeans and made my already low rise jeans even lower! They were still cute on but so annoying because I would have to wear long cami's underneath my top and pull them back up after bending over! So I put my band in and waalaa... They instantly became my favorite jeans! I tried them out over Thanksgiving Dinner and everyone asked if I lost weight! I love it so much that I've put them in every one of my jeans and dresspants that I own. It wasn't my intention to look skinnier, it was just to keep my pants up and keep my underwear from poking out! The band is sewn into the inside of your jeans underneath the waist band. It's NOT attached to the top like Maternity jeans are. It just looks like you are wearing a tucked in black cami. The fabric is a Matte finish and it comes up to just below your bra.

After having a lot of requests I have decided to throw a party for the next time I come to Utah. It will be monday Dec. 15th from 6-9 pm. at Salon Hope in Draper Utah. We will have a discount Designer Jean lady come and if you don't want new jeans, just bring in your favorite pair and I promise you will love them even more. We will first decide what size you will need. XS- XXL. I will have samples there for you to try on. For $29, I will then sew them into your jeans and have them delivered back to you within 3 days. I'm also bringing in fun Fleur de Lis jewelry and accessories from New Orleans, straight from the French Quarter! It will be so much fun! I will be handing out coupons for Great Lengths Hair Extensions too!

Salon Hope is owned by my one of my very good friends and she has agreed to let me host the party there. It's a perfect place because it's big and has a full length mirror in the bathroom for us to try on Jeans! She will be giving out coupons for free or discounted services and have a drawing to win free professional hair products. She has Pureology, Redken, Biolage, Vavoom, Bedhead (hair and Make-up) and many more! All products will be discounted!

I hope everyone can make it! Please feel free to bring friends and family! It will be so much fun.

2002 6 year reunion

Ok, so as most of you know, I am arranging our 6 year high school reunion since we didn't get a 5 year. I made a blog that is just for Alta High 2002. Please check it out and let me know what you I think it will be so much fun! It will be held at Draper Park June 28th @ 8 p.m. All Alta 2002 graduates are invited. Bring a picnic and s'more supplies for you and whoever you are bringing: Spouse, kids, friends, anyone is welcome. I am so excited to see everyone! Don't be dumb, just come! I really didn't mean to rhyme! Anyways, I figure if I tell everyone I have kept in touch with to tell everyone they have kept in touch with, we could get a pretty good turn out! So start talking! I am also putting together a list on the blog of everyone who is wanting to come. That way people might be more interested in coming if they see a few of their friends on the list! So, if you are wanting to come please let me know so that I can put your name on the list! Yay! E-mail me at or just leave a comment saying you will be there! Hey, if I can come all the way from New Orleans to be with you, the least you could do is drive down the street to be with me! Hope to hear from ya'll soon!
