Did you go out on BF?

Hi Everyone!
 So the question I have been asked a lot today by friends is if I ventured out on Black Firday or not and well the answer to that question would be....
 LOL I am one of those crazy people that love black friday and I love the 'hunt' for those awesome deals and bargains.
 This year ( like every other year ) I went on the hunt with some great friends, between the three of us we were able to get pretty much everything that we were wanted there were a couple of things that we were unable to get but that was because the store didn't have it in stock. 
Did you venture out on Black Friday? Or did you stay home and have left overs?
I also got the wonderful chance to shoot an amazing and fun family on Black Friday, they were a lot of fun and I was honored to be their photographer.
 for those of you that are photographers out there - here is a great giveaway going on now over at ...
paint the moon go check it out.

Wow was the last time I posted really November 15?! Holy Moly!
Well first off-
 I LOVE Thanksgiving! I love watching my hubby- YES, MY HUBBY deep fry the turkey and cook the rest of dinner for all of us. I bake the pies the night before and do as much prep work as I can. It's the cleaning the house that I don't like! LOL But it has to be done right? Well my Hubby says so anyways! LOL
This year on Turkey day also happens to be my baby sisters Birthday!! She is turning 23 this year. I am so proud of her and who she has become. I know Mom would be proud of her too. So a big huge HAPPY Birthday to her!!!

This year we are hosting friends at our home and we are excited to have them here with us. I wish we had room for many many more! Once we build our dream home Look out! It's going to be a party! I will be inviting everyone in town! lol but shhhh don't tell my hubby he is always the one cooking and he may not be to thrilled with that!

As with the keeping of the day, these are some of the things that I am thankful for:

  1. My faith in God, because with out him I am nothing and never will be. For it is through his grace, love, and forgivness that I am here.
  2. My family, both those that live with me in my home and those that do not, with out the love and forgivness of my loved ones through out the years I would not be the woman that I am today- flawed but very loved.
  3. That I have a place to call a home, not just a house. For the love that flows through here each and everyday and I am thankful to be a part of it.
  4. For my clients! I am just starting out and I am thankful to those that have given me the honor of shooting their families and events
  5. My horse! Of COURSE! LOL With out Fanci my life would have been such a mess, there were many moments in my life growing up that I spent in the barn just talking to her trying to figure out life as a teenager.
  6. For my friends near and far, there are many people that have come and gone through out my life and each one has heloed to make me the person that I am today. But I am most thankful for those friends that have been with me though-out the years and have stuck by me through thick and thin.
  7. For my new friends, I am not always the eaisest person in the world, I forget everything and have to be told a million time before I remember anything, but thank you for hanging in there with me!
For these are just some of the things that I am thankful for, there are so many others but time is tight and there is just to many to list. I have been very blessed in my life and if I was to be called away 'home' today I could go happy.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hi everyone!! *quick update*

Hey everyone!
I know it's  been a while since I have last posted but a lot has been going on here! I have new photos up on my facebook page you can link to it here if you have a facebook page I would love to have you as a 'like' on the page! Let me know that you are there from here! :-)
My hubby had to have another sugery but is doing great. He will be back up on his feet again in no time I am sure of it!
It's getting cold here- not my favorite thing of all time but I guess it has to get cold in order for it to get warm again. It also means that it is time to break out the winter boots which I totaly adore! I love love love boots but it's just to warm in the summer to wear them I don't like sweaty feet! - But then again who really does right? ICK!
And is there anyone else out there that the moment it starts to get cold you start craving  sweets? I always wonder why I can't lose weight LOL! It might just have something to do with my sweet tooth.  At the moment I could totaly go for a case of brownies!
There really isn't anything new besides hubby and his medical 'things' The house is a mess like normal, I have to cook now that hubby is on crutches again, and we are gearing up for the holiday season, that pretty much wraps it up! LOL Man I lead a borning life!  But I guess better then being drama filled.
So what is new in your household?

Where are you going to get your cards from??

I want to send out a BIG THANK YOU....

I want to send out the biggest hugest THANK-YOU to Chevy cars. I was lucky enough and honored to be selected to do an amazing blog review on the new Chevy Mabliu for a month. I was going to get to drive the car around and then blog about it, for the month that I was driving it. I was sooooooooo super excited - beyond words to be honored to drive and write the review, but do to some family issues I had to turn down the review. BUUUUT keep an eye out there are two other lovey young ladies who are also doing the review for Chevy here in the El Paso, Texas area. When I can get their blogging information I will post it here so we all can watch and keep up with the month long review.

I want to also send out a bug huge thank you to Holly over at Business 2 Blogger for setting me up with Chevy to even do the review in the first place, thank you Holly for thinking of me when offering blogger's names to Chevy.

This has been a HUGE honor to even be giving the chance to do this review. And I want to thank everyone involved for the amazing blogging opportunity!!!
