It is indeed a "Good Friday".

Good Friday is a day of repentence and prayer, 
a day to remember Gods sacrifice for us, 
a day to ask forgiveness, 
a day to renew our relationship with God.

We will be attending the night service tonight at church.

We praise you Lord God.
I ask you to continue to protect my family,
and to continue guiding us on our blessed path.

I'm conflicted.

I love Tosh.0

He is hilarious. I always enjoy watching the videos and seeing the pics he posts. So he posted this today and my immediate reaction was laughter that slowly turned into disgust. I am, as most of you know, a pro breastfeeder. I excusively nursed Em until she was about 7 months, until my supply just could not keep up with her deman.

Oh, how I miss nursing. She bit me the other day, so it made me miss it less. It was basically Em making the decision for me to stop nursing. She is completely uninterested and she lets it be known!

But, I digress...back to the picture.

My conflict? Is it wrong for me to laugh at this??? Leave it to Daniel Tosh to have you feeling like a very bad person.

iheartfaces Weekly Photo Challenge: Wind

My quirky little sis.

Reminds me so much of myself when I was that age.

It was a windy day for a lacrosse game, but a great day for a raw capture.

Fun in the studio...again.

On days I'm not working on someone else's masterpiece, I'm working on my own!

Today was another cold and rainy day, so Em and I decided to bring her princess canopy downstairs, put her in a cute dress and take some pics in the studio!

I really wanted to work on a different lighting technique, and I think I found one that fits the look I am going for.

Tell me what you think! {Try to look past the uber cuteness and look at the lighting and post processing - I know it may be difficult - hehehe}

Decisions, decisions.

Brian and I have been in the market for a new car. Why? Well, we have a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon and we have a Chevy Surburban. Basically we have a matchbox car and a house on wheels.

Mama needs something she can drive here and there with Em in, comfortably, and not have to take the massive house on wheels just to run to the grocery store, or take the tiny unsafe, impossible to get in and out of jeep.

So, here is our dilemma with the cars. We decided we want to trade in the jeep because we do use the suburban a lot more. That being said, do we get a smaller two row car/SUV or go for the 3 row crossover?

So here are the 2 cars in the running...

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2011 Chevrolet Traverse

I think we are leaning more towards the cherokee because it is smaller, better for me when I go here and there with Em on a regular basis. Better fit for a mom car. And it is super cute!

The traverse - ehhh - not so cute, and I feel like if we get the traverse, what is the point of keeping the suburban? Although the suburban is bigger, the traverse is once again a huge car I am going to be driving around. However, the traverse is slightly better on gas, has 3 rows, and is slightly lower in price.

Ok, my head is spinning. I need help from my readers!

When politics interferes with science.

I am a believer in science. I am a believer in real life stories.

I am a believer in seeing both sides to every argument, and I am a believer that people should do what is best for their children based on informed consent.

I am NOT anti-vaccine, or a conspirator.

I am NOT a believer in taking a yes or no answer without knowing both sides.

This movie is going to concede to both sides of the issue, and I think THAT is what people need. Information on both sides.

Vaccine court has admitted that vaccines are not 100% safe OR effective. They have paid out billions to families whom have suffered from a vaccine related injury, and it is on the rise. FACT.

We need our children to be safe. Safe from deadly diseases, as well as from deadly neurotoxins found in vaccines. I think we ALL can agree on that.

Safer vaccines, safer schedule. I DEMAND it.

Another teaser {I can't keep secrets}

I am getting obsessed with Em's party. It is really only about 4 months off which, considering how fast 7 months went by, is really not a long way off at all!

So we decided on a vintage polka dot theme for her party. We are having a white tent with tables and chairs in our backyard. We will have little Ball jars with 2 or 3 sunflowers inside {Originally I wanted peonies but August is not the season for them}, and each jar will have a a rusty red ribbon with white polka dots wrapped around the neck of it.

Here is some inspiration:

This is her dress!!!! Courtesy of Vintage Lucy's {How appropriate, right?}

Weekend antics.

We had quite an eventful weekend. This month Brian has weekends off {SWEEEEEET} and since it is also getting slightly nicer out, we are motivated to do more things.

Friday, I met up with my friend Kim {Bumpie as well} for some Mexican food and margaritas. We went to Bethenny's book signing next door after, and there were 998 other people waiting for Bethenny. She had 1,000 people turn out for her signing. I'm not surprised. She rocks.

These were the best close up shots I could get of her. I should have brought my big bad zoom lens, but I really didn't think there would be that many people there! I snapped a pic of her fabulous heels on the way down the stairs.

I got yelled at. Kim called me the paparazzi!

Saturday we hosted a BBQ at our house. Lots of wine, steaks, and guitar jammin'.  Brian's friend Willy, aka Uncle Willy is the entertainment for the kids.

Jake {My business partner's oldest son} & Willy doing Wolverine!

Who needs toys when you have Willy?
Em loves Willy. He was grabbing her legs, and she thought it was hysterical. Everyone has that one crazy friend that becomes the "crazy uncle." Well that's Uncle Willy for us!

My friend Ally had some nice quality time with her youngest son Luke. {Ally is my business partner's wife, and one of my dearest friends}

It isn't often you can snap a picture of Luke and have him actually smiling or not getting angry with you for taking his pic. 
I caught it. Just the moment.

It was perfect.

Sunday we spent most of the day outside and relaxing.

Em loved just relaxing in the grass!
Her buddy Leo liked her hanging in the grass too.

I love to freeze time. Time goes by so fast, and there are so many raw moments that need to be cherished, and this is why I love what I do. For moments like this!

My aunt came to visit yesterday too. She took us to dinner and helped us brainstorm ideas for house renovations. She is super creative and crafty. Our kitchen and my studio need a major make-over. {Inspiration coming soon!}

Ok, so the master {Emerson} calls, so that's all for now! :)

A lack of studies = awareness?!?!

In "honor" of World Autism Awareness Day...

Click here if you are curious about the MASSIVE rise in Autism, and what YOU can do to help and prevent. It takes a whole lot more than wearing blue.

Ok, ok I'll jump on the bandwagon too...

And give a little sneak peak into Em's plans for her big 1 year!

I am only going to show you her birthday party dress. We are doing a vintage polka dot theme. I love the vintage clothes look, and I am obsessed with Vintage Lucy's.

So here it is!
