Sometimes I’m really good at taking pictures of anything and everything, and other times I’m not so great. This weekend I wasn’t so great. I had an absolutely marvelous weekend, but the only pictures I have are ones my sister took. Which, if you know my professional photographer sister, you know itz most definitely not a bad thing. And, frankly, itz sometimes nice to take a step back and not “have” to capture every little moment on camera. That’s not usually how I feel because I genuinely like taking photographs of every little thing, and I most definitely don’t feel like I “have” to. Anyway, here’s some weekend highlights in words with a couple pictures scattered in:
Friday night: Jonny and I went out to Bristol to celebrate his ten years. We enjoyed a lovely dinner and were gifted a massive piece of their carrot cake. We took it home, and after our food digested, we dug right in. Then I finished it on Sunday morning for breakfast.
Saturday morning: Swim boot camp class! The instructor had the class wearing t-shirts for extra resistance. I kindly declined saying I had enough resistance on my own.
Saturday brunch: Jonny’s brother, Robbie, was in town this weekend, so we went out to brunch with Jonny’s grandparents which was a definite delight.
Saturday day: Stephanie invited me to her studio to take some maternity shots. I’m saving those for itz own post, but you can get a sneak peek if you head to her Facebook page. I did show up in my new Reebok Skyscapes (received as part of a FitFluential campaign), so I had her snap a photo of me just using my iPhone. Full review coming later, but I’m totally digging the look the shoes give to any outfit.
Saturday night: We headed to my in-laws for a tasty barbecue dinner. They recently opened their pool which is always nice to see because it means warmer temps MUST be coming. They open it the earliest and close it the latest of anyone I know. Itz awesome!
Sunday morning: I took a walk in our neighborhood with my best friend Diana. It was chilly as it was still in the 30’s, but later the temperature reached 60! Wahoo!
Sunday noon time: There was a bridal shower for my soon-to-be cousin. My mom and my mother-in-law were two of the eight hosts. Everything about the shower was wonderful. Stephanie, Mom, & Me:
I’m so fortunate to have such amazing, strong, supportive role models in my life. My sister and my mom are just amazing. They both are two of the most selfless people I know, especially when it comes to me. They would do and they do do absolutely anything for me, and I really hope they know how much I appreciate them. I can’t say it enough.
I’m linking up to Healthy Diva’s Marvelous in my Monday.
Sunday afternoon: I went to Stephanie’s house and hung out with her kiddos outdoors. Jacob, Phil, and I played baseball (with a plastic bat and wiffle balls – so much fun!) while Audrey and Stephanie sat on chairs and watched. Eventually, the kids got on their bikes and we went on a walk to enjoy the sunshine that had finally appeared.
Sunday night: We went to dinner at Jonny’s aunt’s house as his cousins were in town. Dinner was delicious, but the highlight was definitely the four flavors of gelato for dessert. Everyone had a little scoop of each. It was fantastic, and Baby Itz loved it, too!
