A Year of Bling!

  • The 2011 Wedding Recap

posts! They are so much fun and did I mention EASY?! I’ve already blogged these images once, I just have to gather them up again and wa-la! It’s a fun post recapping an amazing year of BLING!  Whew! Countless diamonds have passed through my hands and I’m happy to say that I’ve never dropped one in a drain or in a river… I’m VERY careful! (All the newly engaged gals out there are gasping at the thought of that!:) I love ring shots and the reason I’m doing a “Recap” post on BLING is because I made it a goal last year to get better at my ring shots. I only took a few ring shots in 2010 that I really LOVED and so I wanted to improve.

Magic Cereal Bowls

  • and a Big Surprise!

day after Christmas and all through the house were piles of tissue paper, giftcards and leftover ham. All the gifts are open and the excitement has turned into relaxation. We had an amazing day yesterday. We started in Richmond and Michael and I exchanged gifts. After we were done and I was using my magic cereal bowl (the cereal and the milk stays separate, it’s amazing!!!!) and Michael handed me a little package. I was somewhat confused because I thought we were done giving gifts. I opened this little package and found a little teal leash with a dog tag titled “Elley Alsop”.

Girls Overnight to the Country

  • Puddles, 4wheeling & a Giant Sleepover

the simple things in life that are most enjoyable. We live in a part of town where life is FAST. Everything is fast paced. People call Shortpump a “Shopping Mecca”. We have this GINORMOUS mall and every restaurant known to man within a 5 miles radius of our house. During Christmas time, Broad street becomes a NIGHTMARE and the parking lots are a dangerous place to be.  So we decided a month ago that some girls from our youth group should have an overnight trip and we should get away from the craziness! So we took them to my parent’s home in the country!! We left last friday night and got away from the hustle and bustle of Shortpump.
