Courtney-Maternity {My Photography}

My friend Courtney is so cute pregnant. I can hardly stand it. These pictures are from early July before I knew anything about how to edit a picture so these pictures are too warm. Please forgive the yellow sky. There were so many pictures that I loved, I can hardly choose which I liked best. They were such good models don't you think? I hope they let me take some more pictures of them soon! *wink*wink*

What I'm loving lately {January Edition}

On my old school ‘family’ blog that I never update anymore I used to post about things I like. I never post on that blog anymore, but thought something similar would be fun to do here. It’s a small roundup of a little bit of everything. Maybe a book I’m reading, song I love, a new product I love or something else completely random.

Soft Double Chocolate Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting {Foodie Friday}

First there were Perfect Chocolate Cupcakes. Now there are Soft Double Chocolate Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Shoot me now. I think I have died and gone to heaven. I think what makes them so good is the chocolate/milk mixture. yummy. These were a hit at Caroline's birthday party. As in, I had 18 cupcakes, 15 people and no leftovers. I didn't even get to eat one...and Caroline had two! I generally think it's pretty risky to try a new recipe for the first time when serving them at a party, but these worked out great!! I know you will love them too!

The Harrahs {My Photography}

This summer I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family. We had no rain in Indiana this summer, so all the grass was dead! We tried to find a place to take pictures with some green. It was really hard, so this was the best we could do. I can not get over how adorable these kids are. Enjoy!

Creamed Eggs on Toast {Foodie Friday}

Photo Updated 4.22.14

Remember when I said that my DH has gotten me to eat lots of new things? Well this is one of them. He used to talk about having creamed eggs all the time when we were dating. I was completely repulsed. I don't know what even convinced me to eat them, but I'm glad I did. Now I am the one who suggests we have this most of the time. We love this for breakfast or dinner. Go out on a limb and try it. It's good, I promise!

Abbe's Baby Shower- Cute as a Button

Last week I showed you maternity picures for my friend Abbe. This week I am showing you the baby shower. Her baby girl was due at the end of August.
I was in charge of the decorations and table ware. Oh.. and the cupcakes of course!

We decided on a ‘Cute as a button’ theme. All the normal pastel baby colors.
I bought everything else at the dollar store. NO Judging! I can do a cute party from the dollar store. I’m sure I would make my grandparents proud! For the record.. I did not buy her gift at the dollar store ;) But I will be doing another post on that later.

Swimming in Chocolate {Foodie Friday}

For my Christmas goodie bags this year I included chocolate dipped pretzels and chocolate dipped marshmallows. I didn’t take any pictures of the ones I made for Christmas because I ran out of time. I had lots of leftovers though, so I made dipped marshmallows and pretzels as treats for Caroline’s birthday party which is Saturday.

Abbe- Maternity {My Photography}

Abbe and I have been friends since 3rd grade...I think third grade, but we didn't become good friends until we got to middle school. In any case, it's been a long time. Her daughter Hayleigh was born at the end of August, so we met up in July for some maternity pictures. I hope you enjoy.

Peanut Butter Cup Brownies {Foodie Friday}

Ok, this is kind of a cheat because it's not made from scratch, but I'm out of both flour and motivation.
