Five on Friday

This week has been NUTS.

You may have noticed the absence of Anthony and Lawter in the weekend's wedding pics- that's because little miss got sick and they didn't meet me there as planned : (.  We ended up in the peds office this week and have yet another ear infection. So there's that.

I've also been gearing up for this weekend's big event that I chair and I'm so excited - we've worked hard for months and it should be a fabulous time! That being said...


I'm also reaalllllly looking forward to this event being over. It's a lot of work for me and I have a big work transition coming up with my job and need the extra time to focus on that. Also, I've missed my Fridays with Lawtie this month : (  I get to spend the first half of the day with her today then have event duties to see to, so I'm excited to get back some special days with my girl.

Additionally, when this event is over, I think it's time to bust out some Christmas things. I've been slowly packing away fall décor and general home décor to make way and I'm hoping this Sunday we get a start on it. Mom and I picked up the new Chestnut Praline Latte while doing a Target run last week and it felt all festive and got me in the mood.

My bestie made some big news public this week! So incredibly excited for Baby Coulsting!

Anthony is going to have sinus surgery next week. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers - poor guy hasn't been able to breathe-smell-taste properly for several years now, and after way too many inhalers, steroids and antibiotics, he started exploring this option when we were expecting Lawter but the timing was never right. Our Thanksgiving will likely be extremely low key as he recovers but the goal is for him to get this over with and be able to fully enjoy Christmas festivities.


That's really all I've got so let's just enjoy some random Lawtie cuteness.

Linking up with the Five on Friday link party, with Christina, Darci, April and Natasha.

Kelly and Collins tie the knot

Still recovering from a very busy, very fun, and VERY special weekend celebrating one of my oldest friend's getting married!
Kelly and Collins' wedding weekend in Cape Charles was fabulous, I had so much fun with my girls and I can't wait to see the professional pics- everything was seriously gorgeous, especially the bride! The décor/theme was a wonderful combination of rustic-farmhouse-natural wood style with elegant gold-ivory-champagne-blush colors. I loved it. The DIY was all fantastic too. Here are some shared photo stream pics uploaded from various friends!
Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Doyle!

Lawtie's Fall Pics

Life gets busy, babies have schedules and need naps, and have wet milk spots on their shirts and drooly faces, and it gets dark early and blahblahblah.
For all of the above reasons and so many more, I often realize I'm missing opportunities to combine some of my favorite things- photography practice and my sweet girl.
The above pic is one of my favorites. Like the string of drool hanging from her chin? : )  I toyed with the idea of some photo editing to remove it, but I really don't like the idea of altering pics of my beautiful girl and ultimately decided that it is just representative of life right now- lots of drool!)
With the unseasonably warmer temps last week and finally, an afternoon where I left work, scooped Lawtie from daycare and got us home while there was still daylight- I took advantage of her new independent sitting skills to snap some fall pics in our backyard.
There may have been a little leaf/twig eating involved. She's quick, I tell you.

Thanks Megan for the adorable baby Toms!
