California Dreamin’

Hope you all had a Merry Christmas (for those of you who celebrate it)!  We definitely had a busy and super fun day for Austin’s very first Christmas.  We’re in California celebrating with my family and my heart is full!  But as you know, I’m notorious for posting my photos way later, so for today’s…

It’s The Little Things

  Changing up this Friday a bit and linking up to Aisle To Aloha’s It’s The Little Things post~!  There’s just too many things that made me happy this week not to share!  1. Receiving this picture of me and my 2 year old nephew in my inbox (next time i’ll need to teach him…

I Love Our Growing Family!

There really couldn’t be a more exciting time for my family right now!  As I mentioned earlier, my niece was born last week and Marvin and I flew to California to surprise the unsuspecting parents (my brother and SIL).  Of course YOU KNOW I couldn’t have gone this trip without my trusty camera.  Welcome to…

He Makes Me Smile!

this little fella can always make me smile.  watching him grow in person and through skype when we can’t physically be there with him has gotten me so much more excited about the little peanut growing inside of me.  on this skype date, i showed evan my belly and he said “cousin”!  he was originally…

Happy Cinco de Mayo and More!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!  Here we go with a somewhat random post again today.  I just wanted to ask for forgiveness for being MIA this past week.  As you know last weekend I had an awesome time celebrating my friends wedding in Vegas, this week I had a client in town so was extremely busy…

California, I Heart You!

Reasons I heart California: 1.  My parents, brother, SIL, nephew, fur-niece and soon-to-be niece live there.  They always feed me well whether it’s eating my favorite jja jiang mien noodles and cake or if it’s going out to get bubble tea.  This is when I flew in to surprise my Dad for his milestone birthday!…

My Nephew and Friends

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve hung out with my nephew and I think I’m going through withdrawl. So to help me cope, I decided to dedicate a post to him, my Evan bear, and his friends. Bella and Evan, best buddies and siblings.  They like to share… my glasses. Here he is with…

A kind of fancy Mac N Cheese!

First of all, I miss this little booger, I call him that because he’s been sick lately and has a lot of boogers and snot.  :(  The cutest thing ever is that he’ll blow his nose so all this snot is hanging out and he’ll say “Blow, blow” so that you’ll bring him a tissue…

Keep Lookbook by a Nephew & Auntie

I am sooooo excited to kick off the week with some photos for a Lookbook (it was really just a photo shoot but I’ve always wanted to use this word, haha, and no, we weren’t paid/hired for this) that my sister-in-law photographed of me and my nephew in our new Keep shoes.  I had never…

Family Time in California!

Hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s day and got some great gifts!  Cutest thing I saw?  When I boarded my Southwest flight heading to Detroit, there were 3 packs of Valentine’s day cards at the door in case anyone needed a last minute gift, haha, too funny.  My favorite thing about flying is that…
