Oh, la-la!

Happy Thursday! Tomorrow is FRIDAY! YIPPSTERS!

So a sweet family I know is in the photography business, well the dad is anyways. He is just starting up, so he had been asking me for a while to take my pics for his portfolio. If you know me at all - you know I really hate being in the spot light, I'm rather shy, and I don't feel like I'm photogenic AT ALL. Well, I finally gave in & he did a "shoot" with us this morning. Now y'all KNOW I drug my friend along with me. :) He took close to 2,000 pictures, so here are a few. Enjoy! :):):)


My GORGEOUS friend, Candice!

Yours Truly!





It was a TON of fun, and you can't even tell that it was 35 degrees outside with a 30 mph wind! I have to say the photographer made us feel so comfortable so that we were able to pose and just be ourselves. It was a great 3 hours! :)

Relaxing Trip to the New Mexico Mountains

Hey y'all! Just wanted to let you girls know I haven't fallen off the face of the earth - just been busy since our trip! Well, Monday was actually a slow day, but I had lots of laundry & cleaning to get done. :) Our trip was a BLAST! I soooo did not want to come back to reality!

Just a couple of pics....

Right before we left :) It was St. Patty's day, we acourse we were wearing green!

Before tubing in the snow!
Banana Pancakes....Mmmm mmm!
My lover & our 2 girls!
Morning coffee in the morning = heaven
One of the many beautiful nights... :)
Shopping!! :)

I have lots more pics to share, those are just some from my phone. We ate A LOT, listened to tunes on our cabin porch every night, laughed til we cried, took a couple of hikes, shopped, slept in, took naps, and just hung out with some great friends. It was fabulous, y'all.

Sunday

This will have to be a quick Sunday post because ya know that cute pup I just got? Well...I guess she got hungry & decided to chew on my computer cord. UGH! Those things do not run cheap. Lame.

Here is my OOTD before church. Let's just say this time change kicked my boot-ay and I had 35 mins to get ready this morning. YIKES!
I'm in love with this necklace....it was $1.50 at F21 y'all! :)


I'm in love with that shirt - it's from Express and its glittery! :) My sweet lover even made a comment...he said it was "pretty" hehe.

They sang Amazing Grace at church today, & acourse it made me tear up. I've always loved the name Grace for a little girl.... the song is such a classic.


We went to Olive Garden for lunch...YUM! My favorite part is of COURSE the dessert! :)

My friend Lauren and I were supposed to do a little shopping -- but we both ended up crashing! Oh well... that's what Sunday's are for right?! ;)

I'm excited for the Real Housewives of Orange County tonight, it's my fav! Other than that, I'm goin' to start packing for our trip to the mountains later this week! Whooo hooo!

Also - please pray for the people of Japan. They have been on my mind all day today. While Sundays are usually joyful for people, spending time with friends and family - there is NO joy for them. It's SO sad.



LORD, you know the hopes of the helpless. Surely you will hear their cries and comfort them. Psalm 10:17

Ya know....

.....when sometimes ya just need a little GIRL TIME??? I think y'all know what I'm talkin' bout. Last night was definitely needed.

I had a 3-way chat with my besties Lauren & Candice.... thank YOU iPhone! :) Makes me heart happy - as C would say. :)

Next...Lauren and I went to a burger place, pigged out, talked about girl thangs, and you know what? it soothed my soul. Amen & amen.

                                                      Mmmmmmmm FRIES hahahaha

Here comes the best part. Oh yes...we SOOOOO turned up the jams and rocked out like little 7th graders to Katy Perry's FIREWORK! Excuse the vocals.

Next....ice-cream acourse!!!! YUMMMMMM

LOVE my friends! It's not the quanity but the QUALITY!

Another Sunday

Well, another amazing Sunday...done. :) Let me just say that our Sundays are usually all the same...but ya know what?? I kinda really like it that way.

First off? Church acourse! I always see all your lovely ladies putting pictures of your OOTD -- so here is mine. hehe. I pretty much felt like a big 'ol dork.
Then... lunch at Abuelos. Sorry --- no pic. We waited for 45 mins and literally scarfed our food.

Next? Loverface took a nap while I ordered & watched Burlesque. Great movie!

We lounged with the puppies (yes -- that is me in my PJ's)
They LOVE to do this...haha


Shopped a little at Target & I bought these onesies for my sisters baby! We don't know what she's having yet, so I bought both :)

And then...and then we had our Sunday evening ice-cream date. Not sure my hips are starting to like this...ha

I'm currently drinking some wine & watching Desperate Housewives. Life is good. :) We have a super busy week ahead...and then after that it's a trip to the mountains for some skiing! Yippee!
