Welcome to my blog! If you're here hoppin' blogs to meet new moms and make new friends as part of the Ultimate Blog Party as hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom, take a minute to chillax and chat with me!!

#99 — $25 gift certificate for Shutterfly from SandwichINK.com
#13 - Scrapbook Photobox from Scrappy Gifts
I'd also be happy with anything related to toddlers (my boys are 2 and 10 months) or a target gift certificate!!
My name is Alicia. My (current) location is Utah! I am a wife, a stay-at-home mother, photographer, homemaker and blogger. I've been blogging since 2007 but recently started Sweet Nothings after I finally decided to make my family blog private - but wanted others to benefit from my randomness and experiences!
I have two little boys and a good man for a husband. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and enjoy meeting new people and other women who want a friend! I believe everyone woman (and man too) have something to offer, whether it's an experience, a cooking, crafting or parenting tip, a talent... everyone has something to offer! There is something to learn from everyone. I am constantly in awe of just how vast and unique and clever mothers and wives (well, women in general) are!
I created this blog with the intent of uplifting and supporting women - no matter your walk of life! It's a concoction of a little bit of everything right now... some of my photography, digital creations, things about being a mom, stuff that's inspiring, funny, or of some irrelevent importance (haha - oxymoron!). You know, all that "good stuff". I try to post daily - but sometimes skip the weekends.
Some random facts about me.
I wouldn't consider myself "crafty" - but I'm trying to change that. I love fruit and yogurt. I love Hawaiian food. I long for the ocean. I could listen to relaxation/spa music for the rest of my life. I wish I were more outgoing/popular. I am very fair skinned - sometimes I fake-bake because I can't hold a tan. I'm trying to wear less makeup. I love being a mom. Sometimes being a mom wipes me out. I look forward to road trips. I try to meet someone new each week at church. I bite my nails. My younger brother was killed when he was 20, in a motorcycle accident 2 years ago, and the experience changed my life. I wish everyone would just tell the truth, be kind and get along.
So... are we friends now?! Yes? Great! Please leave me a comment so I can come visit you too! Or follow me. Or add my button to your blog so you can easily come on back!!
If you are in the Salt Lake County or Utah County area (sorry! I probably wont be taking any road trips soon!) I will do a complimentary 1 hour photo shoot and the Portraits on CD for one lucky winner! It can be for a family, couple or individual portrait session. Outdoor location is negotiable. Please redeem by the end of May, or contact me.
I will pick the random winner on Friday, may 27th, noonish. Please leave a comment with a name and some type of contact information! Get an extra entry for blogging about the giveaway and letting me know!
