Friday Favorites - #NotHappening Edition

I had every intention of sharing a ton of my favorites with you all today, but there just isn't time! I've been moving at morph speed all morning, and it seems likely that I'll continue at that speed the rest of the day. So all of what I had planned for today, shall be shelved until next week. I'm truly learning that I can't do it all, and today I need to give myself some grace. Be back on Monday friends. 

There was a time that I thought it was just an act, a thing. Grace was what you said before a meal or a just-because gift for a friend. Grace showed up in

Family Photos 2017

This summer, while on our annual family vacation in Surfside Beach, we had our annual family photos taken. My sister & I found a photographer that we fell in love with, we all worked to coordinate our outfits, then a monsoon hit the night our photos were scheduled for. #tragedy The photographer we'd fallen in love with didn't have any room in her schedule to fit us in during the rest of our stay, but thankfully she was able to find another photographer to shoot us. 

Ryan, from One Life Photography, came to our rescue & we shot two days later on a windy but beautiful evening in Myrtle Beach State Park. Shooting three children under the age of five, along with six other adults is no easy task, but I was thrilled with our photos.  

Ella was really killing it with her poses all night long. Maddie absolutely refused to cooperate. And Olivia was being her usual self, a total bulldozer, but somehow managed to be the star of every shot. #gofigure

I love these candid shots that Ryan captured of me with the girls on the beach. We were actually singing Moana while we were walking & I hope I always remember that moment. 

I absolutely adore the shots of all the girls together & with my parents. I am always wishing I had more photos of myself with my grandparents & am so grateful the girls will have these to cherish & remind them of our annual family trips.

Weekend on a Wednesday

Phew... so let me start by telling you that this weekend was fantastic. Then follow that up with, it completely wiped me out & on Monday afternoon I ended up going on four different prescriptions. #woof I was already fighting off a sinus infection, but apparently all of the excitement took its toll & that snowballed into bronchitis, an ear infection & a sinus infection. So if you've been looking for me the past two days, I've likely been struggling to keep my eyes open & not cough all over the people standing next to me. 

Like I said though, this weekend was a good one. On Friday night, we honored our graduating seniors at Senior Night. This is a group that I've always been close to, so I enjoyed giving them the recognition they deserve. 

Saturday morning was exciting because a) I didn't have practice & b) my parents were here! 

Eric headed off to golf with my dad & all of us girls headed off to the mall to do some shopping! We had such a good time together & I'm already missing her. 

Sidenote: I asked Ella to show me a sassy shopping with the girls pose. This is what I got! 

Saturday night we met back up with the guys & headed off to Napa Woodfired Pizza - one of our favorite local restaurants. We filled up on pizza & wood fired wings, then I headed back home to pass out! 

Sunday was an early morning as we headed off to our first competition of the season! I got to wear matching outfits with these girls :) 

... and then we won a really large trophy! 

I was exhausted by that point, so I picked up some Panera on my way home that evening then snuggled up to watch shows with my babies the rest of the night. A truly tiring, yet exciting weekend.
