Weekend goodness

Today was a pretty good one. Sunshine. Singing & playing the piano on this song at church (have you ever tried to do both?! It's a challenge! But good one!)
 Photo shoot. Couple of family pictures at the park. Fro-yo at our new fave place. It was good. I have to admit though-this morning it did not quite seem that way! I was up late trying to get a program to install so I could do an assignment that was due today. I'm not sure how I missed the memo that I needed to install a program from a website, but, I did, of course the day before a due date! AAh! Didn't get that worked out. Went to bed late. Couldn't get to sleep. Andrew woke up crying. Finally calmed him down. Looked at the clock and realized it was already 5:40 am. Had to be up at 7:30. Had the classic is-it-even-worth-sleeping debate. Decided a chamomille bath sounded way better. Took an hour long bath. Saw that it said only"twenty minutes" on the epsom salt bath soak label. Oops! Oh well! Made a hazelnut vanilla(coffee) creme brulee (creamer) iced coffee. Made it through worship team. Sang a special song (My first in well over ten years!) Loved that our youth pastor decided to join us with the drums the day of on the 2nd -to-last -practice. It sounded pretty good too! Surprised everyone with the fact that I play piano, and pretty good too by ear (I just can't sight-read that great or play in more than 5 or 6 keys). Taught tot's church. Loved all the stories the kids had to tell. (Aren't little kids' stories the greatest?!) Finally made it home. Took a nap. Got tech support on the phone. Big sigh of relief that they were able to get it to work with remote access!! Decided to invite Josh & Andrew along with me to my photoshoot location since it was at a park (fun for Andrew) and Josh hadn't been to the fro-yo place up north yet! 

Pictures from the rest of the day :)

One of my friends contacted me because she and her boyfriend just got their own place and wanted some good pictures to put up on the wall. I was more than happy to remedy that! 
Here are some of the ones I got.

{We were lucky to get this one! The tide was moving in fast! We still got it though!!}
 
Pictures of us
{Family picture that another family passing by in the park took for us.
 This is the only one they took! We never have one turn out first try!}

{Needless to say, Andrew is in love with his little brother already}

{This is a treasure of a photo, because Andrew was the one who asked me if I could take a picture of him lying on his tummy on the grass(something he never ever does!!) I gladly obliged and this is what I got!}

And lastly, me, at almost five months! (22 weeks today & 5 months on Thursday!)

What did you all do this weekend?
Looking forward to anything this week?
I'd love to hear about it!
I get to catch up on homework!(Sarcastic yay!!)
Might have to throw a Starbucks break in there too!
Their mocha coconut frappe is calling my name...

  1. Thank you!! I hit a point earlier this year when I was really really tempted to just be done with photography because others are so much better than I am (at least it feels that way sometimes!) but then I decided instead to keep at it and challenge myself in specific ways. It's been very rewarding!
    I love that one of Andrew too! He is so sweet! It's amazing how much he already loves his little brother!

  3. Thank you! I love the one of Andrew too! He is so in love with his little brother already! I can't wait for Adrian to get here so the two of them can get to know each other! September 10th can't come soon enough! (ok except the whole baby development thing :) ) I got my Starbucks wish today!! I actually waited 20 minutes at a table at our grocery store where they have a Starbucks just so I'd get the afternoon 1/2 off discount! lol! I got the mocha cookie crumble! Delish! Coconut mocha is still a fave too though!!

  9. I do play piano! I shifted to playing by ear mostly (it's been YEARS since I read notes! shame on me!) It is so relaxing! I haven't been professionally trained to sing but I love to do it!!

    Hey- if you get me a plane ticket there and I will totally do pictures for FREE(we're near Seattle!) ! I'll even throw in some prints too! ;-) (ok or even get PART of a plane ticket there!!) Just saying... :D It'd be awesome to meet you too!

    Ha! Andrew's shirt his grandma got him. She also got him one that says, "What happens at Grandma's stays at Grandma's!" Nice Grandma, huh?! :) Blog layout I actually did myself! Thank you!! It took a lot of work and a million and five tiny changes because I am a perfectionist with that.. yet I love change so I'd totally redo it lol But probably won't because it took so long! Oh and the weather- it's nice when it wants to!!! It tends to be 2-3 nice days and 2-4 cloudy/rainy ones! :( Boo huh! We'll take what we get though!! The Pacific Northwest beauty is like no other!!!

  11. No fun not getting any sleep!  Hope you feel a little bit refreshed today.  Were you able to get the assignment all done?  Sounds like you had a busy but good weekend.  Hope Andrew is feeling better.  I hate it when my kids have fevers :(
