Book: True Blood 'Dead Until Dark"

I started reading the series True Blood. I'm sure everyone knows of the show! And yes I LOVE that show my husband and I go so hooked on it. It just stinks b/c we don't have HBO so we are prolly a little behind on the last season, but don't worry we will get caught up in no time! :) I decided that I liked this show so much that I might as well start reading the book series. So far book one is good and it helps that I can picture each character I love being able to put faces with people in the books I'm reading. I guess it makes it more real for me, who knows. Haha :)

Busy Busy Month Coming Up....

I can't believe that it's almost April!!! Where is this year going....
April is going to be such a bust month for me, but I'm looking forward to everything that will be going on. 

Since we are trying to buy a house this year we decided to skip a "Big" vacation and do a couple smaller ones this year. I will miss our big vaca but the small ones we have planned will be fun. I'm looking forward to them. 
The 2nd weekend in April we are heading down to Sam's Thorne Arkansas with a couple of friends for a rock climbing trip. Shane and his buddy went down last year and they had a great time so this year the wives are tagging along. I'm looking forward to all the pictures I will be able to take of them climbing and also the secrecy there. They said it's so pretty and I will be so amazed at it! I can't wait! 

I also have 3 photo shoots in April that I will be doing. One of them will be my sisters senior prom! I still can't believe she will be graduating in just a few months. Crazy! :) But I'm so proud of her and can't wait to see her walk across that stage! 

Also in April I will be making her Graduation Announcements and Graduation party invitations. 
Shane's sister will being graduating college May 5th, and she has asked me to make her Graduation party invitations for 60 people. Of course I'm looking forward to all the crafty stuff I will be able to make in the upcoming month, but I'm going to be one busy girl! So if I go MIA for awhile you will know where to find me. At home at the table making tons of graduation stuff. LOL. 

So far that's all that April brings, but it's still early so more stuff could be planned!

St. Patty's Day

Last Saturday was St. Patrick's Day. I hope everyone had a good day and a safe one! Shane and I headed to Lawrence around noon to hang out a friends house and watch the Lawrence parade. I have never seen the Lawrence parade so I was excited to go. We had a pretty good day. It was such a nice day out it was too cold or too hot, it was nice being outside all day. :) 
The parade was pretty good. Since we were at the end people were pretty tired by the time they got to us so there were big gaps and some of the parade went the opposite way of us so we didn't get to see. But that's oayk we still got to see a big chuck of it, so it turned out good. 

After we left the parade we headed home and had a couple friends over. We just hung out the rest of night. It was good St. Patty's Day this year. :)

Here are some pictures from the parade.

Welcome Kaelan William McGinnis

I'm happy to announce that my family has a new baby boy!! He arrived on Saturday March 10 @ 4:10am.
Kaelan weighted 6Ibs 14 oz and was 19 inches long.
My cousin Kevin and his fiance Haley are such proud parents!

He's such a little cutie I just wanted to snuggle him all day when I got to hold him! So precious! :)

Kevin and Haley didn't find out what they were having so it was a surprise when he was born.

Here are a few pictures of the new little cutie! I can't wait to see again and just snuggle him. I love holding babies they are so cute. We have to get all the holding in while they are little b/c one they are big the don't like it. Haha :)

Isn't he just the cutest!
He got him to open his eyes while we were there. They are big blue ones!

Photo Shoot: Heather & Eric

Back on Feb 18th I had the chance to do a photo shoot with my sister and her husband. We did the shoot at Loose Park. I'm a little behind on posting about but better late then never,  right? 

Here's the story of how this shoot became...My sisters husband Eric texted me back in January asking if I was available to do pictures on Feb 18th. Of course I never turn down a shoot and I was wide open that day. I asked him who I would be shooting and this is what he said...He wants to surprise Heather (my sister) and purpose to her again and thought it would be nice to have pictures of it. At first I didn't know what to think was he serious or pulling my leg, with him sometimes you never know. But he was serious and that was so cute and sweet he wanted to do that for her. They will have been together 12 year in April. I told him to just tell Heather he wanted to go get their pictures done and during the shoot he could just pop the question and he would be so surprised and have no clue. 

Here are some pictures of them around the park. My sister just take great photos and it makes me sick. LOL. The camera just loves her. :)

Here are pictures of the proposal. So Sweet!
 Her face he was kinda confused, Priceless! LOL 

 She said Yes again...:)

Getting The Process Started....

This is the year Shane and I want to buy our very first house! We are both very excited about this and have been looking forward to buying our first home together. He went out during the week and bought the book Home Buying for Dummies. He wanted to read more up on the process and understand stuff before we meet with the realtor. So he is currently in the process of reading and he is learning stuff (so that's a good sign) LOL. I believe our plan is to schedule a meeting with the realtor in the next week or so. We want to have him help with suggestion a good mortgage lender to use and start the pre-approval process. I'm very excited and very nervous at the same time. I know everything will work out but it's a big step so it's makes me nervous. :) I can't wait to actually start looking at homes. This will be so fun!

I will continue to update on our process as we go. Wish us luck and stay tuned for more to come. :)

Book: Mockingjay

Last night I finished up Catching Fire and started reading Mockingjay. This is the last book in the hunger games trilogy. I have really enjoyed these books but it's crazy to think of someone actually have to go through all that horrible stuff.  I'm not sure I could handle something like that. I'm anxious to see what happens at the end of book 3.
The Hunger Games movie comes out on the 23rd of this month. I look forward to going to see it.

Once this series is over I will be on a mission to find new books I will enjoy. :)
