My Beautiful Sister Terri

Since Terri got married in December she didn’t get a chance for any fun outside bridal pictures.  So when we were both up in July we decided to go out and have some fun.  T and I always have fun collaborating on pictures together, she isn’t afraid to try new things which means we always end up with some awesome pictures.

I Am Ready For Halloween

I have been obsessed with Halloween this year.  I usually don’t love this holiday, but with the baby coming right after Halloween I feel this crazy need to decorate and really get into it this year.  It is like my finish line if you will, it is only a few days after Halloween that I am due so I want to really make this month fun and memorable.  I went out and bought a few new decorations that I really love and here they are.

Here is the banner I just blogged about, all put together.  It was totally worth my $16.

I have wanted a Halloween tree for a long time and I finally found the perfect one at TJ Maxx.

I love love love anything and everything vintage so these darling pictures were perfect for what I was going for and they look super cute on my tree.

This is classic and I had to buy it.

Here are my shelves.

I already had the glass thing, and I bought these sparkly skulls and the black crow at the dollar store.

H7

My $3 sign from Big Lots.

I saw this idea on Esty.  I already had the glass jar with the lid, so all I needed were the black beans.  I printed the little sign off, and it looks pretty close to the one I saw. 

H5

We have this book about unexplained mysteries so I found a good scary picture and have it propped open to that page.

H3

I don’t have a ton of decorations yet, but I will keep adding each year until I get it how I want it.  My mom always did holidays great.  She loves to decorate and holidays were always fun with her.  We would come home from school and she would have the house all done up and ready for the month.  I loved this about her.  She is very talented and made most of her decorations, and one day I hope to do the same. 

More Cute Ideas

So as of late I have become obsessed with banners.  I think they are cute and vintage looking and feeling, and I can’t get enough of them.  I am also obsessed with Halloween and found this on Etsy.

Could you die at how cute it is?  I did, and I bought the word Halloween only for my banner.  You can order the kit and put them together yourself and save some money or you can buy them already assembled.  You have to check out this lady’s website, she makes the most adorable banners and blocks ever and I think they are a really good price.  The site is called Emmie Cakes, and here is the link: http://myemmiecakes.blogspot.com/

Once I get my house decorated for Halloween I will post a picture of my banner all put together.

Maternity Pictures

I have always wanted to do maternity pictures but there isn’t a photographer close to me that I like.  I found one in Logan but it never worked out so I decided to have John take them for me and I would edit them.  I set my camera on AV mode, set the setting how I liked and he did the rest.  It worked out good, he would take a few and then let me look and we would change things around and try a few more until I got some that I really liked.  I think they turned out really fun, and I am super glad that we did them before it snowed the next day!

Weekly Gut Check

33 weeks

33 Weeks!

One bummer thing is that my morning sickness is back with a terrible vengeance, other than that things are still going really good.  With each passing day I start to panic more and more over the things I still have to order and get ready for him.  I am determined to get it all done in the next 3 weeks so I can just relax and enjoy the last few precious weeks that I am pregnant with Tiny Baby.

My Sister Randa’s Cute Family

I am finally starting to see a light at the end of my picture editing tunnel!  I have been so behind its crazy.  I took these pictures over the 4th of July weekend up in Star Valley.  It had rained so much that Spring that everything up the canyon was still lush and green.  Taking pictures of 4 kids is always a fun challenge!  Plus I am certain I have the cutest nieces and nephews ever!
