LV Baby Shower

My amazing sister, Beth and my sweet Mom threw me the most elegant baby shower last weekend. We decided to do an outdoor luncheon in my parents backyard. We hire our friend Amber and her mom Cyndi of "From Scratch LV" to plan all of our events, and they never disappoint! It just was better than I ever could have hoped for. 

The food was amazing, the weather was perfect, and the company was even better. Baby Meyer has been so spoiled. Thanks Beth & Mom! Love you!

Pregnancy Announcement Video

Finding out I was pregnant was one of the most special experiences of my life. What was even better though, was telling my loved ones for the first time and having them share in the excitement with me. This is a short video I made of the reactions of just of few of my loved ones when we told them the news. 

I couldn't find the video we took of my in-laws reactions, so sadly it didn't make it in this video. :(

Stay-cation~Lake Las Vegas

This weekend I turn 22, and for my birthday my family was going to take a trip down to my Aunt's beach house in Mexico. The week before we were supposed to go, my cousin was staying there and her car got stolen right out of the guard gated community! My Mom just bought a new car so we decided not to chance it. I was really bummed that we weren't going, but McKay surprised me and told me he was going to take me to Lake Las Vegas on Friday night and spend the day there on Saturday. We had such an amazing, romantic time. I don't know how he does it, but every year McKay manages to somehow make every birthday better than the last. He's incredible. We stayed at the Hilton hotel and resort. Our room was stunning, the views were incredible, and we had such a great time. If you live in Vegas or are just vacationing here, I highly reccomend staying at Lake Las Vegas. It is like a mini Tuscany. They have the quaintest little shops, and the tastiest restaurants. You have an amazing view of the lake almost everywhere you go, and you can rent boats and canoes to ride on said Lake. It's just beautiful. We ate at the most incredible stake house called Sunset & Vine. {I will probably be dreaming about my filet minon for the next couple of weeks.} We explored the village, swam at the pool, and just had a relaxing time.

Baby's First Ultrasound

We went to Utah this weekend for a wedding and to tell McKay's family that I am pregnant. While we were there we wanted to hang out with our really good friends Pete and Brittany. Brittany's dad is an OBGYN and he offered to do our first ultrasound for us since I wouldn't be able to get into the doctor for another 3 weeks! We were so excited and it was fun to have Pete and Brittany there because they are expecting their first baby girl in about 8 weeks. And they were so nice to get the moment on camera for us. It was so incredible to see our little baby's heartbeat! It made everything feel even more real.

Big News

{photography credit: Heather Telford}

We are so excited to announce that we have a new little family member coming to our family in March 2015! 

I cannot express how excited I am about this little peanut coming into our lives. McKay and I feel so blessed to have this opportunity to become parents. It has already made our relationship stronger and better by just knowing that we are creating our own little family together! 

We love you, little one! Can't wait to meet you in March! 

How are you feeling? 
Exhausted. I want to sleep all the time!  I am super emotional and a little nauseous throughout the day, and I can already feel my body changing a ton!  

I am craving mostly fruity things, like smoothies and fruit roll ups. 

Pregnancy moment: 
I am very happy one moment, and the next I am crying over nothing. A couple of weeks ago McKay and I were about to go to bed and I just broke down crying for NO reason at all. I looked at McKay and said, "I don't know why but I am just so mad at you right now!" Haha poor guy he just looked at me and said "I'm sorry". I hope I can get these pregnancy hormones under control soon otherwise we are in for a wild ride! 

Stay tuned for the video of our first ultrasound!

NYC Trip

McKay and I just got back from a trip to NY and we had so much fun! For Christmas last year, McKay's parents gave us two tickets to wherever we wanted in the US so we decided to go to New York City! Here's some pictures from our trip {via iPhone} 

We left Friday night on a Red Eye and arrived at around 6:30am in New York. {we were SO exhausted!} we drove through Times Square to get to our Hotel, which was just a couple of blocks away.

After we checked into our hotel, we grabbed some breakfast at Cafe Metro and then headed over to Grand Central Station. 

Then, we headed over to the Yankees vs Red Sox game where we bought some delicious hot dogs and watched the Yankees beat the Red Sox which made McKay the happiest man in the world!

The next day, we went to church at the Manhattan Temple, met up with some friends for lunch at a delicious gourmet cafe, walked through Central Park went to the 9/11 memorial, rode a ferry to the Brooklyn bridge and to the Statue of Liberty, and then walked through Times Square where we found "Baked by Melissa" cupcakery! I had been looking all over for it and was so excited to find one! This was definitely my favorite day of our trip. 

On Monday, we went shopping down 5th Avenue, went to the Guggenheim Museum, the Empire State Building, China Town, Little Italy, Madison Square Garden, sightseeing, and then dinner at "The National" before heading back to our hotel. 
On Tuesday, we walked to Rockefeller Center, watched the ice skaters, did some shopping and sightseeing, and looked through the windows at the Today show before we had to head back to the hotel to check out and go to the airport. 

Overall, the trip was amazing! I loved getting away and spending time with McKay. Thanks, to my amazing Mother and Father-in-law, Mike and Lisa for making this trip happen! Love you guys!

WPPI: Photoshoot

McKay and I were asked to get dressed up in our wedding attire and model for a photography convention here in Las Vegas. The pictures took place in a ghost town way out in the middle of no where, but it was such a cool location! We felt a little out of our element posing in front of 12-13 photographers, but we had so much fun {or at least I did} getting dressed up in our wedding get-up again, and I think the pictures turned out great! 

I couldn't stop thinking about the day is married this wonderful man. I can't believe it's already been a year and a half! Time sure does fly when you're having fun!
