First Wedding Shoot

Today is a big day for me....I have my VERY first wedding shoot! I'm so excited to have the opportunity to do this and very nervous at the same time. I have no doubt that I will do good at it b/c I love taking pictures and capturing everything! So this shouldn't be a problem for me. I think it's the fact of having someone else rely on my to capture the most important day for them that gets me. But I'm up to the challenge and can't wait to see how all pictures turn out. 

I just finished going through a ton of wedding pictures to make sure I have ideas fresh in my mind. I went through my wedding pictures and I forgot how much I love looking at them to remember that special day! I'm excited to capture memories for someone else special day for them to look back on! 

Everyone wish me luck tonight on such an exciting first event for me! 

I will be posting pictures of the wedding so please stay tuned.

Book: All Together Dead

First off I just want to say I still LOVE my Nook. I'm so happy with this purchase and so is my hubby, now I'm not dragging him to the book store everyday week. LOL. I love that I can sit on the couch and order a new book after I finish one. It's just awesome! 

I bought this book on Tuesday and I'm already almost finished with it. I have about 100 pages left. I have been reading every morning before work and on my breaks and lunch at work. I have also been reading every night before bed. I don't know why but reading clears my mind and I feel like I sleep better.

Weekend Recap

I was trying to do this post last night in bed using my Nook Color but it wasn't working right so I had to wait until today.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and stayed cool! It was a hot weekend but it's summertime so I guess it's time for the hot weather to grace us. LOL

Friday: We decided we wanted to do some shopping for the house Friday night. So after work we headed out to Home Depot, Bed Bath & Beyond and Wal-Mart. We didn't get a lot of stuff for the house but that's ok. We wanted new pots and pans but didn't find any we really liked. So we will keep looking until we find some good ones.

Saturday: I got up Saturday and watched a little TV then decided to do some packing. I have been do a little at time of the stuff we don't use. I got a couple boxes done that morning. Our place is looking pretty bare right now. Haha. The rest of the day we hung out at home and spent the day outside playing games and just chilling. Shane smoked a brisket for dinner that night and it was AWESOME! We had some friends over to hang out and play games with us. It was a good night. We got a new fun outdoor game called
Kan Jam. We got a heck of a deal on this when we were shopping Friday night. This game is actually a ton of fun!

Sunday: We got up Sunday morning and headed down to the Farmer's Market. We have been talking about going forever so finally we made it down there. We got lots of goodies fruit, veggies and seasonings. It was good trip. :) After there we went to a freinds pool and hung out there all day. It was so nice being in the pool with it being super hot outside. It felt so good! I look forward to more days like that this summer. :)

I hope everyone has a great week!

Book: Definitely Dead

Last Friday I finished Book #5, it only took me a week to read this book. I was a reading fool with this last book. LOL. I'm really enjoying this series! I will be sad when I'm done with it but I do have my next series all lined up that I want to read. :) I thought about taking a break from this series and starting my next one but I decided against that. I want to finish this series before moving on.

Weekend Recap

It's time for another weekend recap....I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the nice weather outside. The weekends just seem to go by so fast for me. I always want an extra day. LOL

Friday: After work we meet up with some friends to go have dinner and drinks at Frontera's. It's a very good Mexican restaurant that we tried a few weeks ago and liked. So we wanted to go back and have more! After dinner we all headed back to our place to hang out. We ended up playing Rock Band for hours into the nigth and it was pretty fun. It was the first time we had all 4 of us playing at the same time. We had the drums, bass, guitar and singer. It was a great time I looked forwarded to doing it again.

Saturday: This was Shane's Saturday to work from 9-3pm. So I decided to go to the pool with a friend while he was working. It was a great afternoon at the pool the water was cold but we braved it and got all the way in! LOL. I just love hanging out at the pool and doing nothing. :) I look forward to more days like that this summer. When I got home from swimming Shane was all ready to go out and do some shopping for the new house. So I hurried and got changed and we headed out to Home Depot and Bed Bath & Beyond. We got lots of goodies for the house. He got tools and I got decorated stuff for the Master Bath, 2nd Bath and a new rug for the family room. It was a good day of shopping and I'm looking forward to more! After shopping it was too late to cook out like I had planned so we just stopped at Five Guys and grab some dinner.

Sunday: I hope all the dad's out there had a wonderful day. Shane and I had a couple of errands to run in the morning after that we just hung out at home till it was time to head to his dad's house. That evening we headed over to his dad's house to cook him dinner and hang out. We had Fish, Red Potatoes, Corn and Bread. It was a wondeful dinner!

I hope everyone has a good work week ahead!

Weekend Recap

I meant to post this yesterday but Monday just got away from me and I didn't get the time.
So here it is Tuesday and let's recap the weekend.

I hope everyone had a great weekend and enjoyed the nice weather. It was a little hot but it could be worse!

Friday: After work we went to Happy Hour with a friend of ours. Then the rest of the evening we just hung out at home and watched some TV.

Saturday: I made pancakes for breakfast, Yum! Then I got ready and headed up North to have my very first pool date of the summer with a friend. It was nice just hanging out at the pool all day not having to do anything. :) The water was a little chilly so we didn't get all the way but we got in and cooled off and it was good. After my swim day I went home. Shane and I had a few errands to run then we grab some Original Pizza on the way home and relaxed the rest of the evening.
When I got home from my swim date I had some wonderful news from the hubby. He heard back from our Realtor and the seller had accepted everything we asked for from the inspections!! Now it's just waiting time till we close. I was so excited when he told me!

Sunday: Shane went and played disc golf first thing in the morning. I stayed home and started doing some packing in our kitchen. When Shane got home we went and had a pool day with some friends. I love the pool and I look forward to spending more time there this summer! That night we headed over this Shane's brothers for a birthday celebration for me and Shane's dad. We cooked out hamburger and hot dogs, play some bag-o's and just hung out with the family. It was such a wonderful evening to spend outside. I loved it.

Hope everyone had a great work week!!

Inspection Time...

The next step in our house buying process is getting the inspections done. There are 3 inspections we needed to have done The whole house, chimney and termites.

Monday morning at 9am we had our whole house inspection. I was very nervous about this inspection. Our inspection guy was really nice and deatiled about evertying. The inspection went pretty well. Nothing major is wrong with the house just some little repairs and safety items that need to be done. Nothing that is going to scare us away. LOL. I mean every house is going to have stuff wrong with it weather it be big items or just some little stuff that doesn't take much to fix. There was one major concern during the inspection, which was the AC unit. It wasn't working correctly the air coming out wasn't as cool as it should be. We learned yesterday that AC unit has been repaired and is working now. So that was a plus and one thing off the list we need to ask for. We won't be worry about this for now. We got lucky with only finding little items that needed to be take care of. I felt so much better after this inspection.

We had our last 2 inspections yesterday at 3:00pm. The termite guy was finished by the time we got to the house. He did find termites outside under the chimney area but that's the only place. So we are definitely going to be asking for the seller to treat them.
We also had the chimney done too and there's nothing wrong it. So that is a good thing!

We are meeting with the realtor tonight to go over everything and write up the stuff we want done before mvoing in. So we will see what the seller comes back with.

Wish us luck now more waiting, Fun fun! LOL

I still feel pretty good about our house and buying it! I can't wait to get this last part of waiting from the seller done then we will just be waiting to move in! We are so ready to be in our house. :)

Book: Dead as a Doornail

I'm moving right along in my True Blood book series. I'm really enjoying this series. I love to show too but the books always give you more detail. :)

I just start reading book #5 yesterday. I got to buy another book on my nook color! I love this thing. I just love the fact that I don't have to carry a book around with me anymore. My nook is so thin and fits prefect in my purse without taking up a lot of room.

Our first Dining Room Table!

As many of you know when buying a house comes all the fun items you have to buy to go in it. So last night I wanted to go shopping to get an idea of what style and price on dining room tables. We headed out after Shane got home from work to Furniture Deals. We got our living room set that and we loved it and got it for a good price so we went back for the table.
The idea of tonight was NOT to buy anything but to look around and get ideas for when we were ready to purchase. But that's not exactly how our night played out....We got there and started looking around and we found one that we both liked. We started looking at the price so we had an idea of what we were going to pay and noticed the table was pretty half price and the sale ended Monday plus an extra 10% off the sale price. So it was an awesome deal! Shane and I walked around a little more and talked about what we should do and we both decided that we should buy it now! Only because in the long run we would be saving ourselves about $800 with buying it now rather then waiting and it not be on sale.
We are both very happy about our table and can't wait to use. I think we made the right decision on buying now! So we now officially have our very first dining room table!! I'm so exciting to eat on it. hehe

This is the picture off the website. This table is an extension table so it sets 8 people. We got the everything table, extension and 8 chairs.
