Getting back to real life.....

Vacation is over and we are trying to get back to normal from having a week of fun. Back to work, back to house work and back to everyday stuff life brings us. It's hard to get back to everyday life after having such a wonderful vacation....but it has to be done I guess ;).
I finally got caught up at work today to where I'm not going going all day long. That has wore me out this week. So hopefully now I can slow down and just get through Friday like a breeze and not be exhausted for the weekend.
I have a lot catching up to do from my photography school stuff, so I will be busy trying to do all the assignments I missed. Be sure to watch for all the fun stuff I do. I will be a busy girl trying to get everything done, but it will be fun doing all the different photography stuff. :) I hope to get back to trying to post daily by next week, but we will see if things slow down enough to let that happen.

Be watching for Mexico Part II for more pictures from our fabulous vacation!!!
Hope everyone is having a great week!

Mexico....Part I

We made it back from Mexico......such a sad day we had to leave and come back to real life. :(
We got in Friday evening the 23rd, our flight landed in KC at 8pm and we got home around 9:30ish.
This vacation was so much fun even though we have been to Mexico before it was still a lot of fun. We made this vacation more about getting to relax and not run around trying to fit everything into a schedule. We just played each day by ear and woke up and said what should we do today. We spent most of our time in the pool by the pool bar! Yes we had plenty of drinks and sun time on our vacation. It was amazing. We were very sad to see this vacation come to an end but we do plan on going back there in the near future. We just love it down there. It's nice just to get away and not have to worry about anything or get up and go to work. Ah the relief!
I took a lot of pictures down there so I won't be posting them all but I will share some good ones....

Arriving at the Airport

Our Resort....this was the front of the resort from our deck
This is the back looking at it from the beach

Our hot tub on our deck! It was very nice...we decided to go with the hot tub instead of an ocean view room...which we had last time in 2008.

Our spare room the didn't get used. Nuts...LOL
Last time we didn't make it to Cabo Wabo but this time we made sure to check it out. We didn't go late so it wasn't too crazy we just wanted to go for some drinks and check the place out. It seems at night it would be crazy there just from seeing the inside and the club area. 

Had to do a Cabo Wabo Tequila shot while we were there. Haha

We guys this is just a few of my pictures but I will be posting more so stayed tuned.....But for now I'm out and off to watch a show with the hubby! Night Night

Happy 1 Year Anniversary!!!!

Sunday Sept 25, 2011 was our 1 year wedding anniversary! I can't believe it's been a year already. WOW time flies! We got back in town from Mexico Friday the 23rd and just had the weekend to get ready to be back to the real life. So Sunday for our Anniversary we watched movies all day then went to dinner at Texas Roadhouse our favorite steak restaurant. It was a good day and I couldn't have married a more wonderful man! I truly love him and can't imagine life without him.

Happy 1 year baby!! I love you!

Here is our anniversary cake we had.

We have had a great year and I'm looking forward to many more!!! We also had a great time on our vacation. I will post pictures as soon.

Mexico in 2 day!!!

Vacation is almost here!!! I'm so excited to be going on vacation in just 2 days! I can't believe it's already here. I feel like just yesterday we were like just 72 more day to go. I have been super busy this week at work trying to get my stuff done for the week I will be on vacation. Let me tell you I'm wore out from all this work! I hope I got everything covered but you know something is always missed. LOL.
This vacation is much needed for both Shane and I. We are so ready for a week of doing nothing and relaxing! The weather down in Mexico for our week looks wonderful 90's all week. Lots of beach and pool time for us.....Maybe I will even get a tan down there.

Here are some pictures of the resort we are staying in.

I look forward to telling all about our vacation and posting picture when we return!
We leave Saturday 9/17 @ 8:15am and will return Friday 9/23 @ 7:30pm.

Photo Shoot: Kasey Class of 2012

Last Sunday I took my sister Kasey out to do her Senior pictures. I still can't believe my little sister is going to graduate from High School. It's so crazy how big she is! I might just cry. We had a lot of fun doing her pictures and we took over 300 of them! Of course I didn't keep them all but there were tons to go through. I believe I kept a little over 200 of them (wow still a lot of pictures!). I took her to the West Bottoms and Loose Park. We started her pictures around 11am and didn't finish till about 2:30pm. We got a lot of good pictures, she is going to have a hard time picture the ones she wants to hand out to her friends. I know I will have a hard time picking ones to hang around house. She wants to go out again in the Fall when the leaves start falling and changing colors. I think this will be a really pretty time for pictures. I love fall leaves.

This was not easy trying to pick ones to post on here.....So many good ones to choose from. I love way too many!!!

If you would like to see more from this shoot, please visit my Facebook Page Part I & Part II

Photography Challenge: Freestyle

This weekends challenge was just Freestyle shooting. It was time to just head out and shoot whatever we came across instead of having an actually theme to shoot. I did a lot of picture taking this weekend. It was lots of fun! The picture I decided to use for this challenge was one taken from my sisters Senior Shoot down at the West Bottoms. I thought this would be a prefect photo to share in remembering 10 years ago of 9/11. I just love this picture and am so glad I had to chance to capture a moment like this!

Saturday morning Shane and I got up and took a motorcycle ride out to Weston, MO. It was such a great morning for a bike ride. It was chilly but not too chilly it was just right! I had never been there and I wanted to take some scenery pictures. This little town was so cute I loved it. I got some good pictures and we did a little shopping, nothing big since we were on the bike. I got some fall candles and I just love them.
I want to start making more trips to places to take pictures and just to see all the different places out there!

Here are some pictures I took in Weston

These were some old cameras being displayed in the window...Pretty cool I thought!
Shane and I got an old fashion soda. I had never had one before. It was good

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We had a busy one but a good one!
