Obligatory Fall Pictures

It wouldn't be a personal blog without the obligatory family fall photos right???

Fall is my favorite time of year. Football season, leaves changing color, BOOTS, and other wonderful things come in the fall. It's also my favorite time of year to take pictures. The colors and lighting are just perfect for beautiful photographs, whether it's of people or landscapes.

We took a little drive up the Blue Ridge Parkway one Sunday to see the changing leaves and had to take some photos along the way.

(I hate that these are so heavily watermarked, but I'm aware of some photo snatchers out there.)


Hubby knows how important the "perfect picture spot" is to me, so when we both saw this bridge off the side of the road...he immediately hit the brakes and pulled over! That's why I love him. 


I used some actions from The Coffee Shop Blog to add a little more glow to the pictures, as well as a few neat little edits. Their actions are incredibly easy to use and give a beautiful result.


Daddy-Daughter love. Need I say more???


My little minions were on their best behavior during picture taking, which made me sooooo happy! 


I'll take goofy faces any day. These pictures best capture their personalities, so they can't all be smiling and posed.


Being able to sneak in just a few pictures each season is really a blessing. You see just how fast your little family grows up when you're flipping through albums.

Big Boy Birthday

Last week, my adorable husband turned 30. I asked if he wanted a date night, a small gathering, a party, or just to forget about it. Surprisingly, he wanted a party!

The party planner in me was thrilled, but what do you do for a 30th birthday?? We planned the party for the afternoon of a Clemson home game and invited friends and family over to watch the game and eat. It was a beautiful day, so we ended the night with a bon-fire as well.

Decorating for a 30th isn't easy, but we stuck to the number 30, and the colors blue, orange, and gray.



A little photo collage as the number "30" showed of my favorite photos of Hubby. He's changed a lot in the last 10 years!


Some little streamer/banners added a pop of color as well.


I used my silhouette to cut out circles of the three colors, then just sewed them together! 


I didn't want it to look like the cake was on fire, so we settled for three candles instead of 30.


He had help from his favorite little girl to blow out his candles!


He said it was the perfect birthday. All of his friends and family were there, the Tigers won, and the food was great.



I hope he has many more, even happier birthdays for us to share together!

Halloween Bag Tags

Do you hand out little bags of candy on Halloween?? Or do you let kids have a free-for-all in your candy bowl? If you're a bagger, then you'll love these FREE bag tags!






 Just bag up some candy in a clear baggie, and tie your tags to a string after punching a hole in the corners. You can even write "To" and "From" on the back if they're for a class party.

Happy Birthday!

This guy doesn't want to admit it...but he's 30 today!!

 That now means we've been together for 1/3 of his life...yikes! He is the best husband and daddy to our little family, and sets a wonderful example for our children to follow.


This is the look he gives me...most of the time. He puts up with a lot.



 We're a little nuts, but we wouldn't have it any other way. We have some good times together and I look forward to many more!


Happy Birthday Hubby! We LOVE You!!
