So this was basically me the entire weekend....
With a little bit of this....
No - I didn't run a race. I just ran for life in general. As usual.
Saturday, I was out of the house fairly early to meet up with a past client to do her daughter's 1 year picture.
It was so wonderful seeing Ashlie again... missed her husband who was away on a trip with his dad, but I got to meet Ashlie's mother & it was so nice spending the afternoon grabbing pictures of her little sweetheart.
This year has been a year of 1st birthdays /1 yr olds for me... I have loved it. They have such personality at that age. & although mobile & still run a session with how they feel, they are quick to grab their attention & hold it for a second. All you need is one good second as a photographer.
I had intentions of heading to Whole Foods when I left their house since I rarely get out that way but just hated to go without Ricky ....
... so I ended up going to Hobby Lobby.
Now THAT, I don't mind going to without Ricky.
I walked out of the store with all my crafts taking credit. I got yarn for a hat, I got 2 new crochet needles that I needed, I got some stickers for my Bible Journal, some new paint brushes... & also new scissors. That's in thanks to Harvey Dent & his latest adventure....
I didn't forget Ricky though - I ended up getting him this MASSIVE Captain America patch. I thought he may want it for a blue jean jacket or vest he has - he said he wants to put it on a denim shirt. I give my approval.
I got home & started working on pictures & ended up watching American Hustler - which I didn't think I was going to like, but totally got caught up in it. I just love Amy Adams. I'm sorry though - she's always going to be Giselle to me.
I couldn't stand it any longer though...
The temps were perfection, the day was gorgeous - I couldn't make myself stay in the house & at the computer for one more minute.
We ended up getting Harvey Dent in the car (the big baby still doesn't understand the concept of jumping in a car on his own) & we headed to the park.
We just had the best time of taking it easy & wandering around, letting Harvey scope everything out, sniff all the smells, watch all the birds. I was so proud of him because he didn't bark at anyone or anything... & Ricky & Harvey had gone up ahead & I over heard 2 ladies talking about how gorgeous that dog was & how they wanted a breed like that for their family. I felt like I boosted my chest out a little & was a proud momma.

|Time for a rest... squirrel chasing is hard work|
We headed home & decided to stop by my parents house for a minute.
It was Harvey's first time getting near a horse. This is where he got nervous for the first time. He jumped up on the fence to get closer & Cochese isn't bothered one bit by dogs so he leaned down to sniff Harvey.... oh no... Harvey backed up & started barking like, "is this ok mom & dad?"... but the more he saw Ricky patting the horse, the calmer he was getting. He still wasn't sure about that big 4 legged beast on the other side of the fence.
Needless to say, while I edited pictures the rest of the night, Harvey was out like a light. I haven't seen him that sound in sleep in a long time...
Sunday had us at church where the Merge group got to take over "big church" while 2 of our pastors were out on vacation. Nothing like making a fool of yourself in front of the whole church. Its what I do best apparently.
My whole day was made though because our Grandbuddy Emerson, she just kept wanting me to hold her & she kept laughing with me, playing with me & then at one point, she turned around & just grabbed me to give me a big ole kiss. I think I my heart totally melted in the floor.
We ran out with Ryan & Chasity after church & grabbed some lunch & they had to head to a Baby Reveal party & we headed to Sam's Club.
I really like that on my 21 day fix, I can get basically my whole grocery list there since its all clean eating, fruits & veggies & healthy stuff.
& of course, we had to stop for our Starbucks Sunday
... complete with a Sunday Biblical spelling of my name...
We got home & I was going to go get back on the computer but once again, couldn't make myself. I mean, its JUNE & it was in the 70's - no humidity - perfection is the only word that can describe the weather. We had our windows open all weekend long & our room at night felt like heaven. That cool fresh air. Are we sure its June? I'd take June like that every time.
But I ended up sitting out on the porch & finished up a book & just wanted to stay outside till the sun went down... which is exactly what I did...
I didn't want this weekend to end.
& now, heading into another week. This week, my "to-do list" is so long, I already have anxiety. I kinda hate weeks like this... but its just another week in my life. So be it.
How was your weekend?
Did you have great weather?
Got a busy week ahead?
