Sibling Photo Shoot

So for Mother’s Day my friend wanted to get some nice photos of her and her brother for their mother. She wanted enough to create a small album and get some framed. I ended up taking 280 photos! It was a lot of fun. I am by no means a professional but it was great practice and I’m glad she trusted me to do it. These are just some of them.

weekend

Although Danny was gone through the whole weekend it was still a good one. My friends came over on Friday to celebrate my birthday and I spent all day Saturday hanging out with Annabel and reading. It was the first day in months that I didn’t leave the house. I also finally painted the bookshelf that Danny built for me. Sunday I went shopping with my mom and sister. We got some wedding ideas and found some good deals for wedding stuff.

I can’t wait to get the bookshelf in our bedroom!

Annabel fell asleep on me while I was reading.
It’s so hard to train her to stay off the furniture because she is so needy and cuddly.
And cute so I can’t say no.

She also was sleeping with her paw on my hand.

Having everyone over on Friday night really wore her out.
She’s so cute when she’s calm and sleeping.

my birthday ‘party’

This is the second birthday I’m celebrating while with Danny…And the second one he missed because of the Marines.
At least this year he’s in the same country as me!

So since he was going to be gone for the whole weekend I decided to have a little
birthday get together with my girlfriends.

I had a lot of fun and I’m so glad I got to see them – it’s been months!

Annabel of course had a ton of fun and was completely worn out.

I can’t wait for Danny to get home from drill!

weekend

Such a busy weekend!
I feel like I didn’t get to rest at all.
I got to catch up with a lot of friends and do a bit of shopping with my mom.
I got some cute Valentine’s Day decorations and craft supplies.

I did some more wedding planning – surfing the web for stuff.
I have found part of my bridesmaids’ gifts.

I went to Dave and Busters with Danny and his family.
