September is Gold

September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! Let’s go GOLD for the kids!

Sept

We need to get companies/sports teams/celebrities to go gold before pink!

Maya Thompson (Ronan’s Mom) had enough people (Over 25,000) sign a petition on the governments website to turn the White House gold for September. They finally released a statement in regards to it. They turned us down. You can read the statement here.

Please inform people that Childhood Cancer is NOT rare.
~ 46 children a day are diagnosed with cancer. 7 will die today.
~ Childhood Cancer is the #1 disease killer in children.
~ Pediatric Cancer only receives 3.8% of all cancer research funding.
~ Every 16 hours a child with Neuroblastoma dies.

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.

Thank you, Ashton…or Chris

Chris “Ashton” Kutcher gave a really FANTASTIC speech at the 2013 Teen Choice Awards. I know most of you did not watch it live :). First of which we learned that his real first name is Chris and not Ashton. Damn actors.

Here is Ashton’s Speech;

Please youth of America, take note!

Thank you Chris Ashton.

Bring you Back by Brett Eldredge

Brett 1

I had heard the song “Don’t Ya” on the radio a few months back. Fell in love with it instantly.

Brett Eldredge’s debut album “Bring you Back” came out on Tuesday and it has been playing on repeat in my car every since!

How about this performance in an elevator. Such an amazing voice.

You have got to check him out. Not only for the music but because he is REALLY good looking as well 🙂

“Bring You Back” is only $7.99 at Target through tomorrow! You will not be sorry.

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.
