A very busy and wonderful weekend

I’ve been dying to spill the beans.  This weekend was Autumn’s surprise sprinkle shower.  We’ve all been planning and plotting for weeks.  The big event took place at Angela’s house.  I lured her there under the pretense of taking a family photo shoot.  She was so surprised and ended up crying off a lot of the mascara I told her to wear for the shoot ;)  The sprinkle turned out perfectly and I ended up getting some cute photos.  Did I mention it was fifty-five and sunny!

Before the shower, I went and watched Tristen play some b-ball.

 

Alyssa was having a good time
I got the idea for the puff balls from Momtog’s blog.  I spent a few good hours cutting out the letters for Mikayla’s name, and it turned out so cute!

Fun New Goals

So…I’ve been reading blog after blog about photography and I discovered the 365 day project and I’m going to do it! The goal is to take a picture every day for the next 365 days in hopes to improve my skills and to document our life.  I started the project yesterday and I’m posting it to a new blog that is linked to this blog on the right.  It’s called Amber’s 365 day project – imaginative name, I know.  I’m excited about it for more reasons other than improving my skills.  I think taking a picture every day will help me think about each day as its own.  Mike and I have a tendency to live for the next big event…weddings, visitors, trips, etc.  I hope this will help us appreciate the days in between the big events.  Also, I think it will be fun 365 days from now to look back at the year 2010 in pictures in a photo journal of sorts.  So, if you are so inclined, you can hit the link to the right and follow along.

In other news, I’ve also made a list of not so interesting goals: reading 50 books this year, doing sit-ups every day (my BFF Kate inspired me), running 4 days a week at a minimum, blah, blah, blah.  I won’t bore or blog further, but you get the idea.

Finally, I would like to thank my cousin Tyler for designing my new logo! This was his first go at it, and I absolutely love it.  There may be some small changes in the future, but this is the general concept.

Oh, and it’s snowing…again:(
