Girls weekend and Beehive Bazaar

I had a wonderful weekend! It started off with dinner at La Jolla Groves. Anyone who serves me diet coke like that deserves a star :) 
*I am so lucky to not only have the most beautiful friends ever, but they are also so kind, loving and would do anything for me. . . and often do!
The lights were so so beautiful at the shops at Riverwoods! Then off to Beehive Bazaar for some wild shopping. Seriously have you been on opening night? It is insane. As in . . . so many people you cant move, completely hot everyone is sweating, then you wait in line for a hour or so to pay. And thats why I go opening night every year ;) Because with all the hotness, its a blast! Plus I got to meet lots of you :)

(you know you love all of these not-in-focus photos)

About that pillow in my hand. Im obsessed. It deserves it's own post. . . 

Oh ya- then after this night I got influenza. . . . and have been in bed for 4 days.  Not cool
hopefully soon I feel great and can get you your photos for christmas! 

Get your flu shots!

back to bed

Love me some Thanksgiving!

No! This weekend can't end.  Thanksgiving was wonderful! I loved having all the special people I love so much at my home to celebrate. While I forgot to get all those great close up shots of decor, party favors, fabulous food, and the tablescapes I did get just the perfect mood shots :) My family is full of it! I died laughing looking through these. Apparently I can not sneak a photo without someone pretty much everyone pulling a face :) 
notice the goofballs pulling all sorts of faces. You should see the ones I didn't dare post ;) 
After so much food, we were all in that "way to full daze" and cuddled up for some elf, and naps!

I Love to see. . .

 I have had several requests about buying this print of the beautiful Salt Lake City temple. It's really been humbling, so thank you! This photo was taken for KSL's new show Mormon Times which airs on Sunday mornings at 10:00. I tried so many angles and I wasn't dying over any of the shots. At then end it all fell into place, and was such a neat experience. The sun started shining though and it felt much more magical, just as it should be. So Im making this print available for purchase.  I will print it on a beautiful metallic
 paper and send out!
(No water mark will be on your print) 



What size?

An old friend

Meet Tyke. This guy was my best friend starting in 7th grade. He does not have a mean bone in his body and is the most caring guy around. Not to mention he is totally funny, and super laid back! We had so much fun and were dorks everyday after school. I liked his best friend and he liked mine, He gave me a dog which we still have (she is getting so old!) then he moved away for highschool- rude. Im just grateful we stayed in touch and he married such a darling, sweet girl Megan.

It was so fun to catch up and get to know his little guys! Theses kids are soooo cute and they couldn't have been better for photos!
