I started a blog in hopes to document all the best and most exciting things happening in my/our life (and everything in between). To say we are busy is an understatement. To say I am more excited than I have ever been is an understatement. And to say that this has been and will be the best year of my life is an understatement of massive proportions.
But I have totally failed to document what has been happening in life. Sure there's some wedding updates here and there but have you seen even one picture from the 8 weddings we've been to so far this year? Nope. Have you seen pictures from any holiday happenings? Nope. Have I written about our weekends? Hardly at all.
I want to get better at this - my hope is that by the time I have a little beeb, blogging about life as it happens will be second nature. I need some serious practice!
I realize this after having such a great weekend and not one picture to document it. I totally and completely suck at taking pictures! Most of you don't even think twice about snapping a pic in the car with your boy or taking pictures of things you eat, craft, bake, or enjoy. The thought seriously doesn't even cross my mind!
My goal is to make this a habit starting now!
With that being said, I had an amazing weekend!
A little message I texted to T on Friday.
Obviously this has nothing to do with anything, but hey, a picture is a picture.
Thursday I was super productive. I made invitations for my SIL, Tracy's, baby shower. I was very pleased with how they turned out! I also made a big chalk board for me and T's engagement shoot (and future home) and the cutest little hair bow keeper for my future neice Charlotte. I stole the idea from her pinterest board. I wasn't able to make it to her first shower and (duh) I didn't take a picture of my final product but hopefully I can snap one when I see the finished nursery soon!
This is what I stole off her pinterest, but the one I made is nearly identical but white! So cute! I added a few bows, head bands, and clips to the finished product.
Friday, my brothers (all 4 of them) and one of my SILs went to dinner at our staple Mexican food place. Travis had to skip because he got a late start on the road and Tracy stayed home. I love family dinners. LOVE them! They randomly went bowling afterwards but I headed home to greet Travis and his baby Travler. We went to bed early!
Saturday, I had an incredible time with Travis at a marriage seminar. You will definitely be hearing more about this through the week! It was so great! That night we met up with friends for crawfish and beer!
Sunday, we took engagement pictures. Sadly, we were pretty disappointed. We followed the address he gave us (which was wrong to begin with) and finally wound up in downtown Houston. Don't get me wrong, I love the urban feel of pictures and I'm sure he took some great pics but the location wasn't exactly our style.
I had 3 outfits I was super excited about wearing but because he was AN HOUR LATE and Travis needed to leave to drive back to Carrizo, we didn't have time to change. Had I known we were taking pictures downtown I would have changed into something more "city appropriate". But we were already an hour behind, the rain was threatening to fall at any second, and to be real, we were already pretty much over with the session before it began. Luckily, we were able to adjust our bad attitudes a bit and hopefully some of the pictures turned out ok. I was planning on one of these pics being the one we used for save the dates but because they weren't really our style I'm not sure what we're going to do now....
I will say though that Travis was absolutely the BEST sport about the whole weekend. Not many guys would be excited to spend a beautiful Saturday at a marriage seminar but T did it with a smile on his face. We seriously had a great time!
And the whole situation with our engagement session was such a mess, I thought surely his patience would have been shot because mine certainly was, but like a champ he calmed me down and we enjoyed an hour of awkward pics together.
I think the rest of this week I will be summing up our seminar. It was something every.single.one of you could benefit from and there were SO many important messages I just have to share with you. Doing an overview on this here blog will also make it easy for me to go back and reference because Lord knows I will need some reminders at my fingertips!
