Good Riddance Plastic Waterbottles!

I have said "Good Riddance" to plastic water bottles and bought myself a lovely green Klean Kanteen stainless steel water bottle. I have only used it today, but that does not stop me from already loving it! It gives your beverages a more crisp, fresh taste and you do not have to worry about plastic chemicals leaching into what you are consuming. The only thing that I have a slight worry about is the nickel content in the stainless steel because I am allergic to it. However, they do state that the nickel is a low content in the stainless steel. So hopefully it does not bother me. I guess we will just have to wait and see! Now, I must go buy a decal to stick on it, make it more "me"!
~Happy Friday!

New Shirts!

So to avoid the heat for the better part of the day, Josh and I went to the mall to do some shopping...I really dislike shopping, but we stayed cool and I found these two really cute shirts!!! I never thought I would see myself wearing these, but I love them and they are so cute! This also meant that I braved the lineups for both the fitting room and the till at Forever 21. (I never want to wait in line)
I also found a pair of jeans that fit me quite well...I have never shopped in American Eagle, but decided to check it out. Well, the first pair of pants I grabbed were a winner! WHAT?! The first pair??? Pretty shocking as that NEVER happens! I usually have to try on minimum of five pairs to get one pair that fits. I even got a FREE top because they were having a promotion buy a pair of regular priced denim, and get a tshirt for free. I normally don't wear tshirts, but I kind of like it.

A Few Photos...

I went home over the weekend for Brad and Leigha's wedding which was so beautiful! (Sneak peak coming soon!)
Here are some pictures I took while staying at my Mom and Dad's place. I absolutely love their yard! (And my new lens which completely blurs out the background!)

Okay, so I think I should update this a bit more frequently and actually let everyone know what is going on in my life between facebook and twitter updates. (Not that it has been that exciting lately)

-I am in the middle of coming up with ideas for decorating our apartment (Yeah I know, we have moved in nearly 3 years ago...but with between planning the wedding the first year we moved, and being indecisive, it is taking me a while.) I think I have the basic colors and "themes" we want to go with. (For today! haha!) Although you cannot do too much with beige walls AND beige carpets (but anything to make it not look like a cardboard box!) ...oh and you cannot forget the avocado tile in the tub (not that I mind it, the color scheme is just a bit limited because we have white, beige and avacado) All the ideas are going to be kept secret until then. Unless I decided to spill at a later date...

-I just shot some engagement photos for my friends the other weekend. It went really great! Their wedding is this weekend! I cannot wait! (I wish I could post a sneak peak of their engagement photos but they are waiting for their wedding to showcase their photos. I promise that you will love them!)

-Business-wise, it is coming along...I have completed writing my shop policies and my biography (finally!) I am always coming up with designs and collection ideas. I placed a few random orders over the last couple days and am still working on the big order. Then I will get busy with making my jewelry.

Other than that, nothing too spectacular...I will keep you guys posted!

I'm out until Monday! 'Till then, have an awesome weekend and Congratulations to Brad and Leigha!!!

New Camera Gear!

I can't sleep...probably because I am too excited about my new camera lens I just bought tonight...Its a Canon 70-300mm (ha! whatever that means...I am no good and comprehending technically camera stuff. All I know is that I can zoom in pretty good!!!)

This is what it looks like:

I think with this new investment, I will have much more confidence in shooting my first wedding this weekend which I am SO excited about! (Plus they are my good friends too!!!)

I can't wait!!!
