Wedding Day Photos

I was asked to take photos at a wedding this weekend, My sister in laws, sister was getting married!
I did not want to shoot everything, as I am far from professional! This is really just a fun hobby for me, so I agreed, but only if there was another photographer there, after all, its not like we could re-do the whole day if I messed up! So I went in with my new SLR camera and just took pictures all day! No pressure, no stress, it was great! We went down by the lake even though it was only 25 degrees out! But had fun getting some shots by the ice, and over looking the lake.

Carter getting busted with his 3rd piece of cake, but I can't blame him, it was delicious! The Exchange, no one does wedding cake better!

Daisies, Daydreams, & Antiques

I finally de-wintered my house, but realized I needed a fresh look for Spring! I went to Old Town Antiques, Target & then Daisies and Daydreams! I found exactly what I needed!

I got this great distressed frame from Target, the green speckled eggs, Bird & Nest from Daisies & Daydreams.

I found these pillars at Old town Antiques. The candles, rings, & pillow were from Daisy's!

I love Daisies & Daydreams!! If you have not been there, check it out, she has great home decor, for all year round and the best seasonal selection too! She also sells the BEST candles! The store is located on Haines RD by AT&T, and Brag Game Rights.

Could it really be...


So many signs out there, I know it will be here soon! The day I took most of these photos it was 55 degrees outside! But it did not last too long, we have to enjoy the warm days when we have then here! And until June they will be very hit or miss! So enjoy the warm days when you can, and in the mean time drink some coffee, be crafty and stay inside where it is always warm!

It was a great day for an afternoon walk!

Mike and I just returned from an amazing vacation!! Cancun was wonderful! We stayed at the Gran Caribe real resort, which was very nice, I highly recommend staying there, the price was great, and everything there was just what we were looking for! Temps in the upper 70's to low 80's all week. All the food and drink we could handle and best of all, lots of time to just relax! We played in the ocean and sat by the pool! I finally found time to read a book, and if anyone is looking for a really good book, Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult was truly one of the best books I have ever read! Enjoy the photos, I cant wait to scrapbook them! I bet I will be starting that book this weekend!

We had so much fun playing in the ocean waves!

Mango Tango anyone???

I watched this pelican all afternoon! I can not believe some of the photos I was able to get. He was diving for his dinner, really neat to watch!
