Brett and Kimmy are Married

I'm so excited just to even write this blog post! This past Saturday I got the most awesome opportunity to second shoot for Nate Juliano at Brett and Kimmy's wedding. I was super nervous in the beginning... so much so that I wasn't talking, and anyone who knows me knows that me not talking is a rare occasion. Once I relaxed, I was able to enjoy myself. The bride was beautiful and the reception had so many personal touches that you could not help to share in their love that day.

It was just our luck that we had a term paper due on Easter Sunday and we didn't think we were going to get a chance to have Easter dinner with the family or anything. After church, we decided that we couldn't do another night of lean cuisines and we were going to get our papers done before dinner no matter what. I don't think I have ever written a paper so fast, but we finished just in time to make it to Austin's aunt's house for all the goodies. Stay tuned for an exciting blog post to come from this past Saturday!

In-line for Springtime

So, I decided last week that I needed to escape from my desk at lunchtime because I was going a bit crazy from staring into my monitor forever. So, I took my lunch break at sports authority knowing that I could find some new toys while I was there. In a matter of minutes I had found a pair of roller blades that I loved and I was skating around sports authority. So... the blades had to come home with me... I called Austin and begged him to leave work early to go rollerblading, but unfortunatly I had to go back to work and stick it out for the rest of the day while my new rollerblades waited patiently in the trunk...I haven't rollerbladed since about 6th grade, but in the last week I have become a rollerblading nut... Lola trys to keep up by running down the sidewalk.. but the poor pup gets tired out after only a few laps around the block... Now, if I could only figure out how to stop; because my skates don't have any brakes.........

Let them eat cake

The blog post on February 10th is a prerequisite for this blog post, because I was talking about how I tried to go to a dessert convention. Well, would you believe that only a few weeks later the next best thing has come to Philly called "Let them eat cake". This event was a charity event cake competition with 40 professional cakes and 10 student cakes to be judged in 2 categories: appearance & taste. All of the proceeds from the tickets go towards the City Of Hope Foundation which is a research center dedicated to curing and preventing cancer. I didn't waste any time purchasing my tickets! Needless to say, after all that cake testing we were both sick to our stomach and didn't hang around for the official results, so here is my own set of awards!

First Place: Appearance Second Place: AppearanceThird Place: AppearanceFirst Place: Taste: This cake was chocolate ganache with milk and white chocolate mousse, so deliciousSecond Place: Taste This cake was a Southern Sweet Potato Cake with Cream Cheese icingThird Place: Taste This was another chocolate one (my weakness) of moist chocolate cake with ganache filling..yummmRunner Up:

Blake comes over to Visit

One of my best friends, Kristy, stopped over last weekend with her adorable 15 month old son Blake. Blake played shy when he first arrived, but by the time we made it to the resturant for lunch he was yelling and throwing everything on the floor (food, shoes, paper) and I couldn't do anything but laugh. Blake has the biggest blue eyes and some Angelina-like lips... so I couldn't help but break out the camera when he was here......
