Tamika's Luau Birthday

On July14th (told you I was behind on post...) I got the pleasure of shooting a friends birthday party. Having a photographer at a big party can be nice, then you don't have to worry about taking pictures youself. :)

My friend had a Luau for her birthday. Her house was decorated so good for this party! She went all out for her birthday and it looked awesome! I'm so glad I was able to capture the wonderful moments for her to remember!  This is one girl that knows how to throw a party and I look forward to taking pictures again for her ;).

Wedding Shoot

I have been so behind on blog post and everything since we moved! I'm now getting back into a normal routine and getting caught up on stuff.

If you don't remember back at the end of June I had my very first wedding shoot. I have posted some pictures of the wedding on here last month. All the pictures are completed and have been mailed to the Bride & Groom (don't worry I mailed them out towards the end of July so they wouldn't have to wait till we moved).

I have finally got some of the wedding pictures posted on my Facebook Page, so please head over there and check them out! I look forward to doing another wedding in the futrue!

Book: Dead in the Family

I bought this book towards the end of July but just haven't had a lot of time to sit and read due to our move. Now that we are getting back to normal I have been able to read more and I should be done with this book in no time. I'm really enjoying this series but I'm ready to get it finished, so I can move onto 50 Shades of Grey. I'm very excited to read this series as I've heard good things about it. But I'm going to finish the True Blood Series before movning on. I think I'm almost to the end of the series, then I need to go back and watch the show again so I can get caught up. :)

We are Officially Homeowners!!!

I know I have been MIA from blogging lately. We have had so much going on with packing, closing on our house and getting the new house all ready and moved in.

I'm very happy to say we ended up closing on our house 5 days earlier then we thought! We were so excited and couldn't wait to get into our new home. The day of signing was July 26th. It wasn't as bad as people made it out to be, it took us about an hour to sign all the paperwork and call it ours!
After we signed we headed over to the house to celebrate and have some wine. We had a couple of our friends meet us there to share the wonderful moment!

We couldn't wait to get into our home and have it all set up so we started painting right away. That Saturday the 28th we started right in trying to get stuff done. We got 2 rooms done that day/night the living room and half bath. We worked all weekend on our house and it was so fun and I couldn't be more happy to do it!
We ended up taking off work from July 31st through August 13th to paint, move and get settled. We got everything painted and moved in by I would say Thursday the 2nd. We have everything pretty much set up like we want it. There are a couple rooms that aren't done yet, (1) is the spare bedroom and the other is my craft/photography room, so nothing major and we can take our time on those. I will be getting a new desk so once my desk is in and set up I will start getting my room set up!

I have pictures of our house before and after we painted so I will be posting those once my room and pictures are workable. :)

The last part of our time off we went to Arkansas for the weekend with another couple. It was just a little vacation to get away. We rented a cabin on top of the mountains and just hung out all weekend. It was so nice and no one around us! I will post more about our trip later with pictures.

We are now back to work and getting back to our normal routine. :)
