High Five for FRIDAY!

So it's been a while since I've done this link up, and blogged in general. I miss it. I miss you all. :(But watch out! I have 3 weeks of summer left, and down 2 jobs (out of 4)! I'm going to have so much free time (I hope).

Linking up with the lovely Lauren over at From My Grey Desk.
1. Emma, who some of you may know- who has taken a break from blogging.. has agreed and decided on our bridesmaid dresses for her 2013 Spring/ Summer wedding. I will take the credit for it, since I did pick them out- kind of. I saw a bridesmaid at the winery last weekend in the dress, asked her where they got them, and we went to try them on. They are ADORABLE!

2. I am gearing up and preparing for vacation. A word I long for. It's going to be just me and my mom, ocean side in Florida. Toes in the sand. Tea in my hand. Sun on my skin! I'm going to miss Mike a ton, but that's all I'll miss from this place. I need a break to escape from reality of business, and epically before classes start again... in 3 weeks!

3. School is approaching, and I've got to be honest.. I am looking forward to it! I have seriously gained 12lbs this summer. I just eat all the time. When I'm in class from 10-6 4 days a week, I don't have time to eat. With back to back to back classes, running up and down four flights of stairs, and working my butt of in class like a work out- there's not much time to eat and when I do, I work it right back off. So with the hope to lose the weight and finally get back into the routine of creating work again- I'm excited.

4. 5k.. I'm thinking a lot this week about training for one. I don't know if I can or not. My ankle is so jacked, but I want to! I don't know if it's just me being out of shape and gaining weight or what. But I think it would be fun!

5. This is pretty much how I feel lately.

Have a great weekend!

My First Weekend Post......

This is my first Saturday Sunday post ever. And you'll soon find out why.....

After a horrible night of working on my feet, I thought it would be a good idea to come home and edit some pictures from last weeks wedding- with some wine to unwind.

I created a new watermark. I love it. And THEN I realized.....

20+ photos in, I had a huge typo. Any typo on a watermark is huge, but I misspelled photography- photogpary.


Just kidding it is. Now I have to go back to eachhhhh imageeeee and  redo it...

Ugh isn't the start of my frustration.

Public Safety Announcement: Don't drink and edit.

 Also, if you're dyslexic, triple check everythingggg!

Thanks for letting me vent.

Where I've been...

I've got to be honest here.. I miss blogging, but lately it's been a battle to post. I have been so incredibly busy, it's crazy! I am working 4 jobs, trying to stay afloat, and keep myself calm through this hectic time in my life. When I want to blog, I don't have time. So it's either blog or hang out with Michael for a bit.
SO what's been going on.... I got a new baby. I got a new camera. Nikon d90. She's a beauty and fits right in with the others. I've had my eye on her for a long time now. I got an amazing deal on it and I couldn't pass it up. I spent my entire summer savings on it, but it will be worth it! It is worth it!

I put her to great use this weekend. I shot an amazingly fun wedding Saturday- outside- on the hottest day of the year. I drank literally 2 gallons of water, and I think I just turned around and sweat it all back out. I will be posting some of my favorite pictures- when I can.
We are in this weird limbo phase right now in life, that I can't go in much detail about, but I want to say thank you to those who prayed for us. I really appreciate it.

So moral of the post... I'm busy. I miss blogging and am going to try to start back into link ups tomorrow. I love my new camera. And at the moment I am so ridiculously tired.

Prayers please.

It's been a rough day. I can't go into details really, but I would like to ask for your prayers.
Sometimes when I become so overwhelmed and want to pray, I can't clear my mind. It becomes so hard to focus on what I want to say. If I can't pray for us, can you please?
Thank you in advance.

Weekend Round UP!

Let the July postings BEGIN! I say with excitement, but I'm actually really sad. It's too soon to be July. WHERE has the summer GONE!?
This weekend was toooo muchhhh funnnn! It was hot as heck,  and ended with a storm of all storms!

Friday was boring with errands and errands and errands before a busy busy night at work, so I won't even bother.
Saturday was perfection! I stayed all my mom's all weekend- it was her birthday! So we woke up bright (I mean bright) and early Saturday and starting getting our stuff together for the lake. We loaded up our bags, coolers, and cars and headed out. Now I remember as a child going to the lake almost every weekend with the entire family... fishing, tubing, skiing, and what not. We tried to remember when the last time we were all out there and I think it was almost 10 years ago! But we are back at it now! They have made plans to go back out next weekend again, but I unfortunately can't go. :( It was my mom, sister & her husband, their two babes, my grandparents, and myself. It was a blast. We went fishing, and caught nothing. We went swimming, and the water was perrrrfect. We fed some turtles. Got sunburnt shoulders. And drank lots of water! It was a great day spent at the lake. After showering up and throwing on some makeup I talked Mom into going with me to help me through a BIG purchase. I bought a new camera! After much diliberation, lack of sleep, calculating, and prayers- I decided to do it. I spent my entire summer savings (that's I had so far) on a new Nikon D90! I have one month to save back up for vacation! Once I purchased my new baby Mom, Heather, and I went out for dinner and drinks for her birthday. We went to Mom's favorite- habatchi! Then went to listen to a cover band she loves. We were at that bar for over 2 hours- that's a lot time for us. Honestly, that's a long day for us all to be together and not have one agruement! We fight like dogs sometimes...

Alyssa baby.

Freckles United!

Alyssa just lost her first tooth!

Birthday lady!

She's full of a lot of hot air! ;)

Mom's saki shot!

Mom and daughters. Listening to music!
Sunday I woke up tired, with a headache, and annoyed. I don't know why, I just was and it lasteddd all day! The family went out for dinner after church, and mom and I ran some errands. I changed and packed up my stuff at moms, and went over to Michael's parents to celebrate my birthday with them. It was so great. They got me this arrow sign from Crackel Barrel that I mentioned I loved. When we were there eating a few weeks back, I said to her I thought it was so adorable. She said, 'What would you write on it?' I jokingly (but seriously) said, 'Mulcahy & Hollans Wedding...' Well she told Michael I said that. It was funny. They also got me a rolling pin! Something I'm starting to collect these days too.  After a delish home cooked meal, hanging around, and opening gifts I headed back to Richmond! Michael and I got one eposide of of Breaking Bad in. We are more than half way done now! On the way back to Richmond, I was driving into a huge thunderstorm. It was so crazy! The wind was like a tornado and the rain was crazyyy!

Soaked! After bringing my stuff in from the car.
I hope you all had a great weekend too!
Have a happy and safe week!
