Weekend Snapshots

Monday, November 11, 2013

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Today my thoughts and prayers are with our brave veterans, we are extremely lucky for their selfless service to our country.

You may have noticed on Instagram that I started on some holiday projects this weekend! I'll be sharing those soon, but I'm waiting until next week to actually start decorating. And although its a little early for me, I allowed myself to listen to some Christmas music while working on the projects. That's acceptable... right? Has anyone started decorating or listening to holiday music yet? My husband thought I was crazy but whatever.

I also practiced with my new camera this weekend and I'm totally loving it so far!! Thank you to everyone who has recommended accessories, I've got them on my Christmas list!

Here are some of my favorite photos... of course, Ruby and the hubs were my models.


I swear this girl knew I was taking photos, she stood directly in front of me and just posed for a solid five minutes.


I definitely have a lot to learn but so far DSLR cameras are much easier to work with than I thought!

We also indulged in some homemade chicken nachos during the Steelers game. Recipe coming next week!

Can you tell we like black olives?

After eating these we felt like total slobs and did nothing the rest of our Sunday. Perfect!

P.S. Don't forget to share your favorite Thanksgiving dish tomorrow and join me for a link-up!

  6. Finn is my favorite to photograph - mostly because he tolerates it so much better than David!
