Ok! It's Monday. It was a whirlwind of a weekend but it was a good one. Friday I hung out with my oldest friend and met some new people. I laughed so hard I could barely walk! There was inappropriate name calling, quoting of really bad movies, falling down, and just all around fun. Awesome, awesome time. Saturday was the start of football for the nephews. Those little boys put 100% into everything they do and I couldn't be prouder. It was also Eli's baptism--pictures coming! He's a cutie. Sunday I went to visit the grandparents. All I have to say is that I love them so much. They are 80 years old and pick on each other like they're newlyweds. When my mom was sick, my dad would drive her to my grandparent's house and my g-ma and mom would spend their days sewing quilts. This weekend my grandmother gave me the blanket her and my mom had started for me. It's beautiful! I can't wait to redecorate my room around it. Pictures coming soon :)

I've recently been trying to widen my blog list. I have new questions, courtesy of this great blog I stumbled upon called Under the sheets shh!! It's very girly and reading through, seems like her a lot of her thoughts describe my own. Plus, she loves very vintage, "dainty", photography which I've always had a love for. Do the questions! I think they're pretty good ones!

The Five Questions Are:

1) The best advice I’ve ever received? From my mother. "It's ok to cry, but I'd rather see you smile."

2) How do you share good news? any way I can! Good news should be yelled from the rooftops! (or at the very least a nice text haha)

3) My most valuable lesson? Things can change in an instant. Holding on to the little things means you don't have time to love the big things. Don't take today for granted!

4) My perfect evening? Being with people I love that make me laugh. Or a football game haha

5) The key to confidence? I have to agree with Sheets--The key to confidence is believing in yourself, that you have the ability to do it.

Duckworth Wedding

Billie and Jeffery had a beautiful ceremony in early August. Not only did Billie gain a husband, but she is now the proud step mother to 4 sons! They have quite the sense of humor too. =)

The new Duckworth family:

Next two are my favorites.

I gotta feeling...oooooooo hoooooo

It's Monday. The monday of all Mondays. The most exciting, anticipated day of the year!!!

not really. Just trying to spice things up today. This weekend was really relaxed. Got to hang with the Patlovich/Georgas clan on Thursday night, I slept almost alllll day on Friday, Saturday was a baseball game with the Barnetts (Cyndi is the cutest mother ever. She made Faith a t-shirt for her 1st baseball game! adorable!) Sunday I worked on wedding pictures alllll day and watched Criminal Minds. Thank you Shemar Moore for being the hottest man alive.

this week.
Tomorrow I'm going to dinner with a friend I haven't seen in about seven years. We had a falling out and now it's all fixed and I can't wait to meet up with her. Wednesday is free! No more bowling! woo hoo! (You are, however, reading the blog of the most improved woman bowler on the wahoo league. I have a patch and everything! haha) Thursday I'm going to dinner with a friend who apparently is moving to NYC? I'm actually kind of excited about that so that I can go visit her! Friday I'll head to PLT for Eli's baptism on Saturday and hang with the grandparents. It's been a while since I've seen them.

questions for monday
  • I am...refocusing my priorities.
  • I am known for…my laugh and my little tooth (not really but I find it hilarious)
  • When nobody’s watching I…cut my split ends. I quite possibly do this while people are watching, I don't really care. :)

Tara and Rustin got married a couple weeks ago in Freeport. It was a Hawaiian theme so it was really colorful! I had a lot of fun shooting this one--definetely a learning experience (first time really shooting with a flash) Here are a few of my favorites. If you can't tell, details of weddings are my favorite. :)

Thanks to Keda for shooting with me! (which btw, I know you're one of like 3 readers that reads my blog, LOVE the new look of your blog!)
