Playing around...

I recently bought a new camera and have been playing around with it's video capabilities.  I love messing around with things like this, so I used Finn as my model (who else) and we made a little video today!  It brightens my day just watching his little face.

Tonight we're having a favorite of Sauerkraut and Sausage, and I believe Landon made some easy chocolate fudge.  Oh, I can't wait!  Enjoy your Monday night!


French Bridal Shower!

I'm getting over a nasty cold which kept me in bed for a couple days.  Can I just say how much I appreciate my husband...hot soup, hot lemon honey tea, fresh flowers, and many diaper changes for a fussy baby boy.  Feeling much better today, and focused on laundry and finishing up a wedding job this week.

Over the weekend, I helped my sister as she threw the most incredible french bridal shower for her sister-in-law.  Hannah, my sister, is a genius at planning and designing parties.  She's done many showers and she cares so much about even the tiniest details.  Her parties are always a big hit and so unique and amazing!  (Also, she is expecting and is so adorable with her baby bump!!  Excited aunt right here!)

Hannah thought of everything from the cheese varieties,  authentic French Macarons (totally different than macaroons) homemade butter spreads, and hand-crafted french onion soup stuffed mushrooms!  Gah, it was as mouthwatering as it sounds! :)

Here are a few pictures from the weekend.  I also snagged a couple of the happy couple after the festivities were over.  What a wonderful time.



our little man who is almost 5 months can sit up (when we prop him up) on his own! he lasts only a few seconds before plopping over, but we can tell he loves it so much.  sweet boy.

in other news...sorry for the long absence.  once you have a child, or if you already do, you realize how your life is prioritized differently...which is a good thing for me.

* i just purchased a new camera this week and have love playing around with it! it's a nikon d5100 and i'm dying to explore the video capability as well as playing with shooting in manual as encouraged by my boss who is a pro at this stuff.

*we've had some weird weather including warm and freezing, but we manage to get out for walks and runs here and there.

*landon and i had a "planning meeting" a couple nights ago.  a first for us as a couple, long overdue i'm sure.  we talked and dreamed and planned for our near future including a few fun vacations and deciding what to do after our lease is up next march.

*ditched Starbucks as our outing place and switched to Panera instead. cheaper, far better coffee in my opinion, and come on, they have asiago cheese bagels! :)

*helped our church move to a new location.  a sweet new place with room to grow.

we are enjoying this spring time together as a little family.
