A weekend ful of birthdays!

Geesh! How I cherish sitting on the couch and doing nothing! But... I can't remember the last time I had a full day of NOTHING! Saturday had a birthday pool party for the little ones to go to and another one on Sunday. So besides running around buying presents and packing, washing and repacking swimsuits and towels my weekend was full and over rather quickly...

I must say that First birthdays are a joy to go to, you know it's going to end up with a baby face covered in cake and frosting.. so Happy 1st Birthday Ava! She is too cute! My daughters got to do a lot of swimming so that ended up with a few good nights of sleep for them and they hated waking up this morning.. Sorry girls!
This picture is my favorite for the weekend... :) Nevaeh finally had enough of my pictures and was yelling, stop taking pictures of ME! So I took a picture!
Mikayla is trying to smile and show off her lost tooth all at the same time, it's almost working for her.. haha :)

It was a great wedding...

I have been so busy lately that I completely forgot about blogging. It would help sooo much more if blogge wasn't blocked from my work computer :) but it is.. so I'm left to blog every other week or whenever I remember. I tried to do it every Friday but apparently my Fridays are more full than I thought. I haven't had much time to craft, but that's because I've been busy doing a wedding... Doing, as in I did all the flowers, bouquets, buttonierres, centerpieces, invitations, favors, decorations, and photography all day. So yeah, I've been uber busy with this and I love it. I really enjoy weddings so I hope that I can be very successful at it. :)

My company is Made By Liz, this part of the company includes anything and everything wedding related. My photography is elizabeth poe photography and I'm working on a website and an Etsy site so when they're done, you all will be the first to know.. or one of the first to know. As for now I'm pretty busy just by word of mouth and considering I still have my full time job I'm more than busy enough. :)

So I thought I'd share my favorite pic.. so far from this last weekends wedding. I am sure that I will have tons more favorites since I still have about 600 photos to go through so this one is my favorite soooo far. :) Hope you like it.

She was a beautiful bride and I loved helping her for her big day! You can see the bouquet I did for her too... Can you believe it's 3 dozen roses??? haha

I'll be back later, until then.. happy crafting... happy photography... just be happy.. :)

Mondays stink!

Now that I'm on a 4-10's schedule with every Friday off it's great to always have a three day weekend but it makes Mondays going back to work about 10 times worse! I'm slow, driving in to work late, getting to work and realizing everyone gave me a pile of stuff to do on Friday while I was gone... and then putting everything off until Tuesday.. .So really, someone please, remind me why I even come in on Mondays???

To top it off, today I have a headache that won't go away.. it's lingering... telling me to go home.. and rest.. and sleep.. and leave the kids at daycare.. :)

Anyhow, if you didn't know I'm also doing wedding planning on the side, wedding planning = doing everything for the bride from start to finish, I think my job is to eleviate most or all of the stress from the bride. I do invitations, flower arrangements which includes bouquets, corsages, centerpieces, etc., favors and photography when needed... So far I LOVE IT! I wish I made enough money from weddings that I didn't need to come to my actual job... But I don't..

Well the only thing that hurts is that on my days off from "work" I'm still working... which means I get to stay up late and sit at the computer editing pictures and doing wedding stuff all weekend. I'm not complaining, this is my choice and I love it, I love being able to help a bride on the most important day of her life... but I'm tired... pooped, my arms hurt from tying little ribbons.. my head hurts from staring at the computer (facebook might also be to blame for that) and I just want to sleep all day.. :)

Anyhow... since I'm here and I haven't taken pics of all the wedding stuff I did this weekend. How about a picture of my gorgeous niece and nephew.. :) yeah that'll work. :)

Yay.. I {heart} them! :)
