Our Random Life #28

It has been such a busy week it is kind of hard to even remember what happened. I hope I am not the only one that has that problem sometimes.

We shot a bridal session, a wedding, and an engagement session this week that will be coming to the blog soon. Jeremy was especially excited about our new 200 mm 2.8L lens that is his new baby. He has been swooning over the creamy bokeh. Make sure to check back to the blog tomorrow for Vicki and Martin’s adorable engagement session!

Jeremy was out at an open house last week and I was unfortunately home under the weather…but he brought me home a plate full of chocolate covered strawberries that made me feel much better.

This week I read a book about parenting a toddler…how can my baby so big??? It is so much fun to see Stella grow into such a little girl. She enjoyed a milkshake this week, and is obsessed with watching Mickey Mouse on the iPad.

Jeremy is trying to convince me to get another Master’s degree. He says that I read so much that I should just go back to school for another degree. I told him that I read a lot, but I don’t take tests…lol. Jeremy seems to think it would be fabulous, but I don’t know about this one…we shall see.

Yes, go get your degree in marketing!!!

River Crest Country Club Bridal Session | Corina

We are in love with this Fort Worth Bridal Session at River Crest Country Club. Corina and Matt’s wedding was on Saturday which means we are finally able to share her bridal session! We have been dying to blog these images for the past few weeks because as you can see, the session was amazing. Corina is stunning and her Pronovias gown was fabulous! We love the clean lines and gorgeous one shoulder silhouette. We can’t wait to share the entire wedding, but for now, here is a look at the gorgeous bride.

To Cheer Up Your Friday

The week is almost, and the weekend is almost here…and if you are wedding photographers then you still have to work this weekend. At least we get the best job ever if we don’t get weekends. Often when I am browsing Pinterest I read these hilarious little quotes and I show them to Jeremy and he never thinks they are funny. Hopefully you will think that some of these are at least a little funny. Here is my attempt at making you smile on a Friday.

Stella and Her Rocking Chair

Last week we got the 200mm 2.8L and we are already loving it. When it came in we had to go out and test it on our most beautiful model. Stella never minds a photo shoot. We took her rocking chair outside for a few images. The rocking chair was my moms, as well as mine when I was a little girl…and now Stella loves it. We love our new lens…but we LOVE little miss Stella even more!

A Few of My Favorite Things | April 2013

I know I always love learning about new things from other people. I don’t think any of these things are new, but I thought I would share with you a few things that I am loving right now. I would love to hear what you are loving, leave a note in the comments!

Beth Moore – I did my first Beth Moore Study when I was a Senior in college, and I just fell in love. I love her teaching and studies and I love how much she loves God’s Word. I love her books and studies, and I also love listening to her online. I have been a bit under the weather this week, so I got to spend a good chunk of the day yesterday listening to her talks online…it was so refreshing. Though her Bible Studies are written for women, I have to admit that even Jeremy has done one of her studies and enjoyed it.

iPad Mini – We decided to purchase an iPad mini for business reasons, but I admit that I have claimed it as my own. I love reading blogs, using my You Version app, and using it for social media. Stella loves playing games on it, and I have had a bit of a hard time prying it out of her hands. The only downside is that it makes my iphone screen look so tiny.

You Version – I have had this free Bible app for awhile, and I am really enjoying it on the iPad. Recently I have used it more as I have gone through a few She Reads Truth devotionals. Though I still prefer holding my Bible in my hands, the app is great when you are out and about or when Stella falls asleep on me.

Biscoff Cookies – You may have had these without realizing it. They are the cookies that they give you on an airplane. I have always loved them on the plane, but because they are European cookies, they were not available for purchase in the United States. I found them while grocery shopping a few weeks ago, and was so excited to find out they are available in the US now. They are basically cinnamon cookies…and they are delicious…you should go get some.

Right now I’m loving Teavana teas. I’m still a coffee drinker, but the amazing selection of teas – from light (watermelon mint)and sweet (strawberry chocolate, anyone?) to spicy (Samurai Chai)and bold (Maharaja Chai, oooh).

We bought an infuser that pours directly into your cup (without the tea leaves!). It started innocently enough with me purchasing an infuser for hubby since he started drinking tea this winter. Then we had to get a bigger one to make more tea. Then my mom saw it and bought one for herself. Then she bought one for her sister. Then she bought one for camp. Then I showed it to my friend, she bought one. Then I bought one for my other friend’s birthday. I tell you, the Sudbury, Ontario store must love me – I’ve been “promoting” this tea contraction to everyone… haha!

The other cool part is that you can mix and match some teas (kind of like mixing spices when you cook). My favourite strong tea match is the JavaVana Mate (has caffeine) and the Maharaja Chai Oolong. Spicy chocolaty tea. YUM

Oh, and it is an art to make tea – it’s like a cool, fun Science experiment – put the water at this temperature and steep for this amount of time.

The types of tea and their health benefits are pretty crazy too :)

Let us know if you visit a tea place and try out the different teas :)

Kristin, I love biscoff cookies as well. That’s one of the reason why I love flying Delta! What supermarket did you find them in?

Kristin Schmucker

I actually found them at Walmart!

Christy Stier

I love YouVersion! Free and works amazing! I have it on my phone for Church when I accidentally forget my Bible at home and doing my devotions!
