Home Day After Portraits

So my Mom clicked a few pics of M and me in the yard while we were still in our wedding garb from our day after portraits! Just thought I would share!

My amazing photographer

I wanted to share these forever ago, but apparently I just got way too busy. Oh well. So, my photographer, Alyssa Jul, is amazing. When we went to take our "Day After Pictures" I had a serious problem . . . and I must really like you guys, cuz this is something I wouldn't ever talk about. But I had a spot (yes a zit) on my back (yuck!!!!) . . . anyway, Alyssa made it disappear!







It is a little hard to see (thank god), but it is so nice that Alyssa could make it go away (and still look nice)

The other thing I had her fix was a hair issue. Somehow my bangs decided to do something crazy . . . and no one told me . . . and it was like I had a weird bald spot. But Alyssa was able to make my hair reappear! I really think this is truly amazing, but you can decide for yourselves.













Better huh? Well, I really appreciate it!

My birthday

Today is my 26th birthday! That seems really crazy. We are heading out to a concert this weekend so it should be a really good time.

But to keep myself on track, since it has been so long since I have been posting, I thought I would share something that has been missed the last few months.

We got a PUPPY!!! and she is adorable. She is not really a puppy (she is a bit over a year and a half), but she still totally looks like a puppy. We adopted her on mother's day and have been in love ever since! Her name is Charlotte, which fits her totally.
Mother's day when we brought her home.

Just the cutest sweetest dog ever! Here is a little video, just for a bit more proof! video

My cute friends

I just wanted to put a couple pics up of my cute friends that are getting married in September! We are so excited for this wedding. Not only are these two just some of the funnest (that is not really a word) people I know . . . but they are getting married in a tiny town in Missouri, so it should be a super fun time!

Anyway . . .

Parasols on Sale

Hey guys . . . I know it has been forever. I really should put some more stuff up here!

Anyway, my Mom has retired this year from teaching (Congrats Mom!), but she is on a cleaning spree! So, we have 35 parasols on sale on craigslist! We are asking for $90 for all 35, (that is only a little over $2.50 a parasol) but we will take the best offer. We would prefer to sell them locally (Portland-ish area), so we dont have to ship them (it would actually be quite a bit of cash to ship them anyway). So, let me know if you are interested!!

Here is the link!

Small Details

So, I realized I really need to finish up showing you all the details of my wedding. It was now over 6 months ago, so I am behind the mark. I have a bunch of small details that I should be able to post quickly, so I will see what I can get out in this busy life of mine.

So . . . here is the first little detail. My mom and I bought fabric to make table squares, not runners, but cute little squares. I love all the fabric, which is good because I still have all of it to play with now.
Pretty huh?? You remember seeing it on the tables?
Just a bit of extra color! I love it! And good thing I guess.

Engagement Party Favors

Did I ever show you guys the favors I made for our engagement party?? I found the idea somewhere forever ago . . . it is just champagne flutes that we bought from IKEA, and then I filled them with Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Plus I made little tags with an olive branch stamp. I think they turned out cute!

Cute and not super expensive . . . gotta love it!
