It was so good to see all these familiar faces again! I can’t believe how much babies change in just one year! It’s so fun to look at the comparisons with how much the grow, the little teeth they get and even new siblings! Love you all! Can’t wait to continue to watch these families grow! xoxo
Taylor & I took off last week to visit our girlfriends in New Mexico! We rented a nice economy car and headed on our way. It was a beautiful drive with lots of awesome scenery. We drove through two valleys with mountains along either side of us. It was really, really cool. The mountain range on our left was getting so much snow, but the road we were on goes along side it and we were in the sun the whole way, phew.
We relaxed on Halloween night when we arrived. We went out to dinner that night…FUDDRUCKERS! YES! I haven’t had a Fudd’s in about 3 years after they shut down all of our restaurants here in Colorado (while I was employed there!). So that was amazing.
The next day we woke up bright an early to get the girls officially married! It’s been legal in New Mexico for a couple months but that bill is currently back in court! It felt like mission impossible and we did it! We had to drive to Albuquerque and get the license and come back for their appointment. To kill some time we checked out their aquarium and botanical gardens. I definitely liked the gardens more, nothing compares to the Denver aquarium. Afterwards we saw Judge Bacon who married the girls and they exchanged their rings. Sam & Audrianna have already done this in Vegas last year (that will be their “real” anniversary) and then next year we have Hawaii. So the court house was short and sweet, the second I hear those wedding words I tear up and Taylor & I both scooted a little closer together and put our arms around each other. It was a great day.
Their Halloween party was on Saturday. The girls were Alfalfa and Darla – too cute! Since this was my first year dressing up with Taylor we did something easy and budget friendly. He was a lighting bolt and I was a girl struck by lighting. Tape for Taylor’s shirt = .99 and my button up was $12. Outfit complete! We had such an amazing time and my poor little heart throbs with these adorable puppies! Can’t wait for next time!
Okay, okay, I know Pinterest ROCKS! There are so many treasures on there…so if you’re unfamiliar, familiarize yourself because you can learn some amazing things and find INSPIRATION.
Inspiration: the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, esp. to do something creative.
To get my juices flowin’ and to get some ideas to work off of I’ll check out Pinterest. I knew the couple today was bringing firefighter gear and after searching I found exactly what I already knew I did not want to do. The guy completely dressed as a firefighter…no no no and it’s been done so many times I couldn’t believe this was all they had on Pinterest. No creativity. Get creative, be inspired and come up with something even better! But even the most amazing photos happen by chance and can’t be re-created.
Jenn & Jerry are awesome. Jerry told Jenn to get into the pants and was just laughin’ at her. They were joking around but I saw how much fun they were having laughing and feeling silly I started to take photos of just Jenn. As Jerry was tightening the baggy pants the idea to have him pull the suspenders came to my mind. He did just that and as her head tilted back the helmet naturally slipped off and Jenn reached to stop it.
Now that’s Pinterest worthy!!
This whole photo was only by chance, even Jerry’s body language. I can’t tell someone how to do that. I can only give some direction.
Pretty cool huh?
