My Random Life #17

It is the end of October and the weather has finally cooled off her in Dallas/Fort Worth. The high today is only 56 degrees and we are expecting lots of rain which means that I think it is the perfect day for Hot Cocoa and a good movie. Any recomendations?

Today is officially one month until my due date! I can’t believe how close it is. It seems so close and yet so far at the same time. At this point we are just waiting on Stella to tell us when she wants to come, we are so ready to meet her.

During my last trimester I have discovered a new craving, Ice Dream from Chick-fil-a. Yes, it has just about the cheesiest name you could ever imagine but somehow I really don’t care. Everytime I see a Chick-fil-a I give Jeremy “The Look” and trust me, he knows what it means. We stopped this past weekend after an awesome engagement session and it just puts me in a good mood. Only one more month to enjoy all these cravings…I have to enjoy it while I can.

I just had to post one more sneak peek before I post this gorgeous engagment session tomorrow…trust me you want to see this session tomorrow!

Christi and Michael | Dallas Wedding

Christi and Michael met in high school, starting dating after a little pleading from Michael and have been together ever since. They are complete opposites in many ways and yet they just fit. Christi is very outgoing and always smiling, Michael is quiet and a bit shy but the two of them compliment each other perfectly. They got married earlier this month at the University of Dallas. Their wedding day was beautiful and the rain held off until everyone was safe inside the reception venue.

Christi and Michael, Thank you for letting us capture your wedding day, your fun and relaxed personalities made you so great to work with! We are so happy for you both!

Jeremy and I had the honor of  having a 3rd shooter along for this wedding and I can’t say enough good things about Shauna, she is an awesome photographer and was a ton of fun to work with, I can’t wait till we get to work with her again!

I love this image that Shauna captured during Christi and Michael’s first look.

What a lovely couple you make. The simplicity and elegance of your.
wedding day is clear in these photos. The main attraction is you two adorned with well chosen detail. We wish you all the best. (We had fun finding a house-warming gift while roaming the streets of Orvieto. You’ll see it one day!)

My Random Life #16

For those of you who were wondering, my birthday is exactly one month from today, I think that is pretty exciting! My mom has always celebrated a “birthday month”, it is a great way to get whatever you want for the entire month instead of just one day…whenever you want something you remind everyone that it is your birthday month, and they feel obligated to do whatever you want!

I am excited for my birthday, but there are so many things coming up in the next two months that I can hardly contain my excitement. In the next 2 1/2 months we will celebrate a TON of birthdays including the birth of our little Stella Grace, Thanksgiving, Christmas and have lots of family come to visit! I really need to go shopping! I officially have one Christmas gift bought, and I am feeling behind with such a big month ahead of us.

Only about 5 weeks until my due date, and I think we are just about ready! I blogged pictures of Stella’s Nursery this week, did you get to see them?

Today I got one of the best baby gifts from my awesome sisters and Stella’s Aunt’s. It is no secret that I am pretty obsessed with Burt’s Bee’s, I love the stuff! Last year for Christmas my sisters bought me an awesome Burt’s Bee’s gift set, and today in the mail I got the coolest Burt’s Bee’s Baby Bee diaper cake gift set from them.  I love it…I have a feeling Stella will be just as addicted as her mommy some day! They signed the card from the best aunt’s in the whole wide world, and I think they are right.

Those two girls are the best gift givers!!!

Jose and Laura | Fort Worth Engagement

Jeremy and I had so much fun with this couple on their engagement session. They selected the Fort Worth Botanic Garden for their session and it was such a gorgeous backdrop for this session. Jose and Laura are getting married in January and I just know they will have an amazing wedding. These two are just too cool. Laura is an artist and even has an Etsy shop selling eco friendly hand dyed yarns. Jose and Laura met while they were in college and they are so adorable together. Keep an eye out in January for their wedding photos.
