It's SUMMMMMMEEEEEERRRRRRRR!!! {& some work news!}


I mean, that basically says.it.all.  IT IS SUMMERRRRR! And unlike past years' posts that echo this pretty same sentiment (cause who isn't excited for summer to finally start?!?) this year it's different: I am DONE with Ursuline full time and come August I'll be part-time online only and this is HUGE.  I think I've talked about this a bit before but never had an official post I don't think...so, here ya go! I figured my FB status update pretty much covers it: I am now getting to focus 100% on being a mama and my photo snappins. I.cannot.wait.  And yes, a vacay to Europe in a few days sounds like the most perfect celebration! HAHA!



Patrick clearly shared in my excitement today for it being summer and my new gig. 







Gosh I love this kid so much!




The kids have been on summer break for almost a week (and I just joined them at noon today!!) and we've been celebrating summer the best way possible: eat ourselves through it.  Donuts ^^ from dad earlier this week then...






...and a MOD date!  Although NeeNee couldn't join us since she's in Europe, we went with uncle Charlie and it was a blast!  Actually Rosie got a special summer treat already: a day date with uncle Charlie to the Zoo! SHE LOVED IT SO MUCH.  And I think Charlie did too :)




She really had SO MUCH FUN.  And barely a week into their summer vacay these kids are totally getting spoiled and living it up with all of the fun things they've been up to!  Zoo, pool, KiKi's Lake, you name it they've done it in the past week!




Mike snapped these pics before we headed off today -- the kids got to play at grandmas and I went to my last day of meetings (and then celebrated by posting the above when I was done! WOOOOOOOT!!).  I love our matching shoes (and they really are awesome -- Native brand, SO COMFY!!) and love this crazy crew of mine!

I'm off earllllllyyyyyy tomorrow morning to head out east to meet up with my friend Tiffanie (from Terry Farms Photography) to second shoot a wedding on Saturday and then hustle back on Sunday to then pack up and get the kiddos off to their vacation homes on Monday morning and then Mike and I are off to Europe to meet up with my parents for 11 days! We.cannot.wait!

Anyways, I'm sure there'll be lots of Europe spam coming your way oh-so-soon...you just stay tuned!  I hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend and HAPPY JUNE FRIENDS!!!

Rosie's New Dress!

Maybe my most pointless post EVER, but it is seriously a post to show off Rosie's new dress!

HAHA!

Seriously though, Ro was in the mood 'to take pictures with mommy' (her words! not mine!) and wanted to twirl in her new dress (from here) and who am I to deny her of that?!?!

















SUPERRRR biased, but is she not the cutest?!?!  And that dress!! GAH! I mean, I guess I posted this cause I am super jealous and wished this came in my size cause how freaking cute is it?!?! Seriously adorable!

Anyways, that's all I've got for this late night post!  I was just finishing editing this session I had tonight (only one more session tomorrow night and then NADA (well, minus the second shooter wedding this weekend...but Tiff will be editing those so no real work for me minus snapping!) until June 18th! WHATTTT!!! #hellovacation #photooverloadcomingatya) and figured I'd share these pics of Ro too.  Hope you enjoyed my little divacakes!

Have a great hump day friends!  I'm literally GIDDY WITH EXCITEMENT

Annie & Scoots...& Nap Time!

As I'm typing this the heat index is creeping close to 100.  YUCKKKK.

It's May 28th.  April was one of the coldest on record here in STL and now May is slated to be one of the hottest.  We've officially bypassed spring it seems. YUCKITY YUCK.

I was telling my friend who lives out of state, unless you are in a pool, you don't want to be outside cause it's so hot and disgusting.  It feels like if you breathed out a million times into a paper bag and had to walk through that -- that's what today feels like.

So!  We stayed inside!  Haha!





After getting Annie up a bit early (which ^^ she clearly did not mind one bit about!) we headed out for a nice little breakfast with my wonderful mother-in-law to treat her for officially being retired!  We then played for a bit and I helped set up her new Chromebook before we headed home.

I had a few more errands to do but I elected to do them during nap time sans Annie cause it was just too hot to be lugging her around for stuff today...and truly I didn't want to really go anywhere cause I was SO hot! HAHA!  I'm such a wimp -- how on earth did I once play 5 games a day of softball in this kind of weather?!??!











Anyways, Annie was being extra cuddly with Scoots this morning so, duh, I grabbed my camera and snapped a few pics of her snugglin' up with her favorite fur brother!  How freaking cute are they?!?!

We then had a quick lunch, thanked God that our AC was working amazingly well today, and Annie went down for a siesta and I got some stuff done around the house, a few errands run, and some other odds and ends before our trip!

WHICH, before I got some stuff done I went to check on Annie and oh my gosh was she sleeping so freaking cute!


She was cuddled up with her bunny that she's been obsessed with lately and I just HAD to go grab my camera for a couple cute sleepy snaps...cause duh, I just can't stop snapping!!













Golly isn't she so freaking adorable?!? I could just eat her up! #sobiased

Anyways, I actually am headed out to take my parents to the airport later this afternoon before my photoshoot -- they are off to Europe a week earlier than us and we are meeting up with them in a week when we get in!  They get almost 3 weeks in Europe -- lucky ducks!  Anyways, that's all I've got for this rare two-post-a-day share from me...hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day!!
