Welcoming November


Morning everyone! This weekend was a great one, let me tell ya. Friday evening we were supposed to get our pictures taken but mother nature did not agree and they got bumped to Sunday. That meant my entire schedule was thrown off and I also gained some more time to think about what props to bring. Unfortunately, I had an amazing hair day that got wasted that day but oh well. 

The weather didn't clear up for the trick or treaters that came through that night, and I felt bad for them (so I gave them extra candy obviously). There were two groups that stuck out in my mind though. The first was a little girl that rang the doorbell then said "Can I pet your doggie!?" instead of trick or treat, and the second was a dad who was walking around with a beer as his child knocked on doors. My thought - you sir, are doing this right. As I waited for the kiddos to come around I ended up cleaning my kitchen and baking cookies. A good night for sure. 

Saturday morning we went to help our friends move in to their new house and then did some stuff around the house. Nate had a soccer game to work that night so I went into photo/blog mode and got a lot done for this week picture wise. We headed to bed early Saturday night because we are old apparently and we had to get up early for our rescheduled pictures the next day.

Sunday was our anniversary - celebrating one year of wedded bliss - and I was up bright and early to get all glammed up for our photoshoot later that morning. You can check out some of our wedding pictures here. It was so cold outside, but we managed and I can't wait to see how they turn out. If you need a photographer for anything in the Indianapolis or Fort Wayne areas I suggest checking out Dustin McKibben he is great to work with. 

Driving home after our photoshoot
Once our pictures were done we were starving and headed off to get some Mexican. Then it was home for a nap before working on homework (Nate) and design work (me). The night ended with a bowl of popcorn and watching "Skyscraper Live". 

Now that November has arrived though it is time to revisit last months goals and set some new ones!
