It’s been awhile….

TKG.

It has been a long time since I have written anything!

I am currently planning my best friends Bachelorette Party and Bridal Shower! Being the MOH is a lot of work. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. I can not wait to share pictures and ideas that I used for both parties!

I am a very strong supporter of Childhood Cancer awareness and Maya Thompson is getting ready to run a marathon (without training because she is a badass) all while raising money for The Ronan Thompson Foundation. She is a little under $5000 short of her goal with only 12 days left! $10 is a minimum donation and ANY amount helps. Thank you advance.

I will try to keep up a little more!

Again, send me your ideas for a bachelorette party and/or bridal shower! 🙂

Family Pictures by LB Photography

Lori (LB Photography) and I had planned to meet up in November 2012 to have our family pictures done! Well that day didn’t quite work out so we finally found time again a few weeks ago.

We looked at a few color options/poses on Pinterest. We knew we had to find some good poses considering we had 14 people! Here were a few poses Lori had pinned on pinterest for our big family: http://pinterest.com/LBBoutique12/family-photo-shoot/

We decided on blue/tan/white with a little bit of pink added in! (Love these colors and we both agreed they would look nice all together). Lori said we need some patterns to be added in so it wouldn’t be so plain. Stripes, plaid, layers it was! It was stressful trying to coordinate 14 peoples outfits but staying on the color scheme we just had to make sure we didn’t have too many stripes/etc.

They came AMAZING!! We did 2 group shots followed by each individual family.

The Way Way Back

Oh another good movie weekend. I have been waiting for this one to come out. The previews for it caught my attention!

I went to see “The Way Way Back” this past Friday night. I LOVED it. It is funny, sweet, sad and exciting all at the same time. Plus you get to see Steve Carell in a whole new light.

Way way back

Plot: 14-year-old Duncan’s summer vacation with his mother, her overbearing boyfriend, and his daughter. Having a rough time fitting in, Duncan finds an unexpected friend in Owen, manager of the Water Wizz water park.

Starring: Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Allison Janney, AnnaSophia Robb, Sam Rockwell, Maya Rudolph, Amanda Peet and Liam James.

PLEASE go support this movie! You will not be sorry.
