2 weeks To Go....

The day is arriving slowly but surely!! Today marks exactly 2 weeks till we get to close on our very first house! We both are so excited about this and can't wait. We are getting so antsy awaiting the day to come!
I have been slowly getting our house packed up and we have boxes everywhere. We are are getting cramped with all the boxes stacked up in our dining room. LOL. Normally I would be freaking out b/c of so much stuff in one room but right now I don't care b/c I know we will be in our house very shortly!

I have been very busy lately with the house move coming up, Wedding pictures to edit and I did a birthday shoot last Saturday so I have those to edit as well. My plan to have all the pictures done by the time we close so I won't have to worry about them while we are trying to move!
So if I become MIA for awhile it's b/c I'm trying to get everything done before July 31st! I'm hoping I can the wedding pictures done by the end of this week. The birthday pictures shouldn't take but a couple of days to go through once I get started on them!

Wish my luck on getting everything ready to go! :)

Book: Dead and Gone

I'm still moving right along in my True Blood book series. I just bought the next book Friday evening. I believe I just have a couple more books left and I will be finished with the series. I'm going to be sad and excited at the same time. I have been enjoying this book series but there is another series I'm looking forward to reading, so when this one is over I can move on. :)

Another Wedding Sneak Peek for The Bride....

I posted a little sneak peek yesterday of the wedding I did on June 30th. The bride seen the pictures and asked if I could post one of Donnie and her. Of course I couldn't say no, I know the excitement you get when waiting to see pictures from your wedding day. 
Yesterday I picked out 2 pictures and got them edited so I could post them for her to see.

Here's a couple pictures of the newly weds!! 

The first kiss as husband and wife!

Billee & Donnie

That's all for now...Stay tuned for more pictures to come once I'm completely finished with them!

Wedding: Billee & Donnie

I mentioned at couple weeks ago that I had my very first wedding shoot. I was very excited and nervous for this shoot since it was my first one! I had a a lot of fun doing this and learned lots from it.

When I first uploaded this pictures after the wedding I was super nervous to go through them b/c I didn't know what I was going to get. I didn't know if they all were going to be bad or not, I was super nervous. LOL. Once I sit done finally and went through them I was very pleased with the outcome of the pictures. Now that I'm editing them it's just making them look even better so I'm very pleased with the outcome of my first wedding.

For the past couple weeks I have been editing pictures (I have over 500 good ones to get through by the end of the month). Tons of pictures to go through but it's so worth it and I'm having a lot of fun doing this process. I gave myself plenty of time to edit these pictures so I wouldn't go crazy busting my butt to get these done. I haven't felt rushed during this process and I'm enjoying it and having fun looking at all the pictures again.

I hope to have have the chance to do more weddings in the future!

Here's the sneak peak from 
Billee & Donnie's Wedding on 6/30/12


I will post more either throughout the editing process or when I'm all done. Either way stay tuned for more pictures to come!

As part of my 2012 goals, I wanted to get back to working out more. I was doing really good about working out weekly at the beginning of the year, but in the past few months I haven't done so good. I feel like with us being so busy with buying our first house I just have been over looking working out. I know that shouldn't be an excuse but I'm using it. LOL.
A while back I was talking to Shane about maybe getting a bicycle and ride that for more exercise, and since he has a bike we could ride together so we both are getting some exercise in a few times a week.
It's been so hot here the past month or so that I can hardly stand to be outside so I haven't been walking or doing much of anything exercise wise. I'm actually not beating myself up as much as I thought I would, and that's only because we have been eating better so that makes me feel good. At least I'm sticking to one part of my goal eating better.
I asked my cousin if I could borrow her bike for a while to see if riding would even be something I like before heading out and buying something that I wouldn't use. First I had to learn out to balance myself again on a bike before I could just take off and go. I haven't rode a bike in prolly 10 yrs or more. It's crazy! But now I got the hang of it again. LOL. So this week since it's been cooler outside I have started riding her bike around our track where we live.
I have actually been enjoying riding around and it's great exercise for my legs. I forgot how much leg work it takes to ride a bike. I will say I do feel good after I go on my ride and come home. This week I have rode 3 times and 2 of those times I have gotten up early before work to get a ride in. That has been awesome riding in the morning, no one is out and the weather is a little cool so it feels great! So far I have been enjoying riding a bike again but I think I will give it another week to make sure I'm not just liking it b/c it's something new. I think I might continue to get up at least 3 times a week before work and getting a ride it. Hopefully I can stick to this and do it. I have been feeling pretty good in the mornings after a nice little ride.
The one thing I'm not to crazy about is the bike seat I forgot how small they are. LOL. I think I just have to get used to it again but my butt was hurting after riding 2 days in a row. Haha. I think if I do decide to get a bike, I think I will buy a new seat for it.

Wish my luck on my quest of bike riding again! LOL ;)

Count Down to Closing Day....

Can you believe it's already July!!! I couldn't have wished this month any faster...why you ask....This month we will be closing on our house!! We both are very excited and can't wait to move it and make it our place together. We will be closing July 31st and that day can't get here fast enough. 
Friday evening we drove by our house and it finally had the SOLD sign on it. We were so happy to see that. Of course I was so exciting and giddy that I forgot to take a picture of it. But don't worry I'm sure we will be buy again and I will take one. 

Shane and I have been so excited that we found our house! We can't wait to move in and get settled. I'm anxious to see how the dog acts in the backyard since she will be able to go out without a leash. Hopefully she will be excited and run out here energy. LOL 

We have been doing some shopping for the house. We both have gotten the shopping bug and have been shopping like every weekend. Weather we buy something or not we still like to go out and see what we want. I have many wish list going of stuff we want for the house. :) We did buy a couple big items that he will need, well I guess 1 was given to us by my grandpa and that was a lawn mower, the other thing he got was a weed eater.  Now he is set and ready to start taking care of our lawn (well of course when it decides to grow again and not be dead) Haha. We also got some other things for the house. I'm going to try and see if I can post everything we got for decorating that house later. I just love all the new stuff we got and can't wait to have it all put up in the house! 

We have been counting down the days on our phone!! Since this day is almost over I'm going to go ahead and put up the days left as of tomorrow!!

Book: From Dead to Worse

I started the next book in my series today. I can't believe how fast I have been reading these books lately, it's just crazy! LOL. Good thing I have my nook or I would be going to the book store a ton. It looks like I have 4 books left in my series and I finish this one. I already have my next series picked out so I will be set once I finish these. 

I have really enjoyed these books. I think I'm going to have to go back and watch the show from the beginning again.

My Future Toy....I hope...

I have thought about buying a new camera, an upgraded version of what I have. After the wedding shoot I did on Saturday, I think this new camera would be wonderful. Don't get me wrong my camera did great, but I think it's time for an upgrade of a faster camera. I love my camera so I think I will stick with the same brand as I have now. 

I started looking around today and I think I found the one I want! 

So, after thinking about it I have decided that once we get settled in the new house, I will start saving for the new camera! :) So hopefully by next year I will have a new toy to be playing with. 

The nice thing about getting the same brand that I have, is all my accessories should fit this camera. So I won't have to buy new lens just because I upgraded!  

I hope that I can save for this quickly because I'm excited for a new camera and to see what fun and wonderful thing this new version holds! 

I think I'm going to keep the one I have now as well for now, so then I will have 2.  So, wish me luck on my saving journey for my new toy! :)

We have the day off today and plan on hanging out a home all day. Shane is smoking a brisket for dinner and we are going to have some friends over to hang out. It should be a good day! I'm enjoying my middle of the week day off, it's kinda nice. Hehe :) 

I hope everyone had a wonderful day!
