Snowy Weekend!

Where did the week go? I'm not complaining... It's Friday!

I hope this weekend is going to be snowy as we have a winter wedding tomorrow to photograph. I am looking forward to the fun shots we can get despite the colder temps here in MN! :)

Yesterday was a fun and exciting day... a bridal store here is advertising my photography and I brought in my enlargement photo that they selected: 

 
They are actually friends too! James & Hannah .... you are famous!!

While I was in the area I decided to stop by and visit my Mom & Sister. They work at the same grade school so it is always fun to surprise them both in one stop. I snapped this photo of my mama teaching her cute kiddos art.... SUCH a great teacher!

 
Coolest Art Teacher Around! :)
And... I also met the cutest kindergardener named Jude Mark. No kidding. My sister told me his name was Jude so I introduced myself (he was not impressed) and I told him the baby in my tummy was also going to be named Jude (he was not impressed). HA! Then... I asked him what his middle name was just for fun. He responded really quietly with, "Mark". I was like "NO WAY!" Probably scared him, but I was shocked. What a cutie pie!!!!! Another Jude Mark in this world :)

One of my best friends Laurel (you might follow her blog) had her twin boys this week and is recovering... so if you think of it pray for her! Liam and Finley are her boys and they are so adorable I just can't wait to meet them! :) Aka Jude's best friends!

Happy Weekend Friends! I am relying on my anchor, Jesus today and this weekend. He keeps us from drifting!!

I've been following your pregnancy on your blog as my husband and I are just a couple weeks behind you. I finally announced it on my blog today and am posting all pregnancy related posts all week. Have you started shopping for maternity clothes yet? What a challenge.
