Weekend Blessings

October has been an unbelievably full month, and to be quite honest… I’ve been rather overwhelmed. I love my job, I adore my clients, but I am in serious need of a week-long nap. ;) I’m still running full speed the next few weeks, BUT I am feeling pretty recharged after this past weekend. It was full of lovely weather and wonderful people!

Friday afternoon, I had the opportunity to meet one of my sweet blogging friends Rose and her husband and parents! Rose has been such a sweet encouragement and prayer warrior to me over the past two years, and when she emailed me to tell me they’d be coming to Oklahoma for a family wedding, I was so excited! We met at Longhorn and had a wonderful time exchanging stories and feasting. ;) They are the sweetest people, and I was thrilled to finally meet this adorable friend in person! (Yes, that’s her hilarious Dad photo-bombing us in the background. Haha.)

Friday night was spent taking pictures, cooking, and laughing my head off with my best friend! I cannot imagine life without Kristi Belle and our adventures. We were in the craziest of hyper moods, running around like lunatics, and by the end of the night my throat hurt from talking and laughing so much. I am so blessed by her friendship!

After a Saturday morning shoot, Andrew and I feasted on chips and queso for lunch at Deep Deuce Grill, because weekends are for eating. ;) The weather was glorious, and we spent the rest of the day relaxing and cleaning. I love weekends with this handsome man. :D

Happy Thoughts – October

I’m very much overbooked and a tad overwhelmed this season, but I am working on thinking happy thoughts and focusing on the blessings. :)

It’s beginning to feel like fall. And it’s wonderful. I need an extra week (or two) of this weather minus the shoots and editing so I can go outside and play football and jump in a pile of leaves. ;)

Fall season means fall food. :D I’ve made chicken pot pie and roast beef, and I’m about to start bread-baking like crazy. We’re also planning a Panera date for some soup. What are your favorite fall foods and restaurants?

We’re still working on our Feasts of 2014 list, and we finally tried Beverly’s Pancakes! Andrew had the day off on Monday, and we think we have a new favorite breakfast place now…SO GOOD. I didn’t even have to ask for extra chocolate chips. ;)

I’m in the process of making my own planner for next year, because I’m too picky (and perhaps too cheap). I’m a little stalled right now waiting for more ink to arrive, but I’m getting really into designing it exactly how I want! Here’s a little peek…I will do a full post on it when it’s finished. It’s laborious to say the least.

I’m feeling so much better and almost completely over the sniffles, thank the Lord. I think the puppy snuggles helped heal me. Jack has a gift.

I love fall flowers. :D I saved some leftovers from a bouquet Andrew brought home for me last week, and I’m obsessed with these orange lilies!

What are your happy thoughts this week? :)

Fall Shoots

If I’ve been a tad more quiet in blog world, it’s because I’ve been crazy busy capturing memories with these beautiful faces! My days have been packed full of shoots and editing, but fall and Christmas card photos are my favorites so I can’t really complain. ;) We’ve lucked out with some pretty good weather and ended up with some darling photos! Enjoy. :)

I’m pretty proud of Jackers for staying still (and adorable) for this shot. We stayed home most of yesterday to rest because I’ve fighting a bad cold the past few days, and I made the boys take this picture to cheer me up. ;)
