Catchup! Lots of Photos!

Yesterday I was trying to get in my groooove and had a lot to catchup on. Today I need to share lots of fun photos with you from my weekend photoshoots and last eve. Here is a picture catchup post!

[Friday]
My mom is an art teacher... I have shared this before. She teaches students K-8th. She was my art teacher while I attended this christian grade school! Best teacher ever :-) I am so proud of her! Each year she displays ALL the students work in such a creative way it is WONDERFUL!!

We also got to celebrate my sis-in-law and dad-in-law's birthdays Friday night. We went and had yummy Mediterranean food... gyros & hummus. DELISH!!

[Saturday]
Beautiful maternity session with this adorable couple and baby "D"! :-) It was POURING rain for the first half but we made the best of it. They brought their car club cars which were all classics. SO neat! I loved the uniqueness of this shoot. Can't wait to edit them all...


[Saturday Eve}

Josh and I got to go to PROM again! It was soooo fun. I was photographing for the prom and it was on a boat in Stillwater. It got me VERY excited for Laura & Tyler's wedding in July. Oh man... the sunset was incredible.. see....


Are they not the cutest couple EVER? This dress was the same color as my sophmore year. I loved it!


I also set up a photobooth. Some of the kids got the idea... others didn't really get it. Ha! We had fun regardless. :-)

[Sunday]
Garden bridal shower for my sister!! Hosted by two of her sweet bridesmaids and included many girls from her college years at River Falls. What a blessing it was for Jonna. They all brought flowers, it was so happy!


Prayer time for sister. Beautiful time!!! I loved these moments.... God is certainly doing something amazing!!!

Phew! What a weekend. We decided that because there wasn't much Josh-Ri time and we haven't had much of a date night recently... we wanted to check out the new America's next great restaurant...

So we decided to be spontaneous and headed to the Mall of America. Turns out... they ran out of food :( It was so sad!! What a bummer.

The happy/funny thing is we ran into my sweet friend CHANA and her hubby Zach...


We both had the same idea. It ended sad, but hopefully we can check it out another time and it will be a fun plan :-) Loved seeing you Chan! Fun memories....

Alright, now I am off to edit up a storm and be productive! The sun shining is quite tempting and I plan to incorporate a long walk with Rosey in our schedule today! ENJOY!!!!!

Seeing you was the only redemptive thing from that fateful night. Alas, we have yet to eat Soul Daddy's deliciousness, but I saw your beautiful face :)
