Baby Day turns 1

This handsome little guy celebrated his birthday at the park with me!! He was a little unsure of me at first but I'd say we got some pretty adorable shots in after we warmed up!!

Stick around and you may see some more adorable pictures of this little guy in the near future :D

Family Pictures 2014

So it was obviously way over due since the last pictures we had done were by Ashley and Kyra was only 13 months old!! And barely walking!! So I made friends recently with another photographer in the area and we scheduled a session to get some new family pictures made before the new arrival is here.

Here are a few of my favorites. I will post the rest on FB later!!

Is it a Boy or Girl?

In honor of being a week out from HOPEFULLY finding out what we are having at our next appointment, I thought I would post a list of the silly wives tales that will supposedly tell you whether you are having a boy or girl. They are highly unlikely since Kyra had a lot of these indicate she was a boy, and she isn't!

Shape of Belly: INDECISIVE my belly isn't big enough yet!

Ring test: BOY (ring makes a round and round motion)

Acne: GIRL (my poor face hasn't broken out this bad in forever if ever)

Cravings: GIRL (craving sweets, sorta only peaches pretty much)

Legs: BOY (where are you carrying your weight?)

Moodiness: GIRL (If you are super moody its a girl)

Chinese chart: GIRL (based off of age and date of conception)

Beauty: GIRL (If you look more beautiful its a boy, less a girl; this may be semi inaccurate as this is  just my opinion and based primarily on my acne all over my face)

Clumsy: BOY ( I can't hold on to anything and trip over stuff it's a bit crazy lately)

Side you sleep on: BOY (if you prefer to sleep on your left side its a boy)

Dad's weight gain: BOY (he obviously hasn't been gaining weight, since he passed a tape test no problem)

Mommy intuition: BOY (I just get the feeling it's a boy I don't know why but when I talk about the baby its always in the He format)

Morning sickness: GIRL (I have been so sick and am still getting sick)

Crave Protein: BOY (Besides french fries I want steak and burgers)

Feet: GIRL (My feet have stayed the same temperature as always)

Headaches:BOY ( I get a headache like every single day no matter how much water I drink etc.)

So the totals are 8 for boy, 7 for girl and 1indecisive.

Now what do you think I am having? I can't wait to hear your opinions!!

Things we checked off the Birthday Bucket List!

So I don't know how many of you remember the  Birthday Bucket List I posted in April? Well it was off another blog and had a great list of things that will get you out of your normal routine and help you make some new memories with your family and friends! If you wanna see the list and join in on our adventure you can find it HERE.

Travel somewhere you’ve never been. We went to Prague and had the best trip ever find it HERE.

Go to a concert. We went to One Republic, The Script, and American Authors it was an amazing concert and it was great hanging out with my cousins I hadn't seen in some time!

Take a class to further your education or learn a fun new skill I am taking a computer class that starts today!! Woohoo!!

Get out of debt. So this one wasn't something we accomplished since April, but we have no debt!!

Get at least 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep.  I have been lucky a few times, mostly because I have been going to bed around 9 or earlier.

Wear RED lipstick.  So this is something I actually like doing and I just wore some the other day for family pictures. And Dustin even did this one :D

Learn how to take better pictures.  As you all know I am very passionate about photography, so I am almost always reading articles, watching CreativeLive and Practicing!!

I can't wait to keep checking things off of the list!! I love bucket lists if you can't tell that and having resolutions and goals to reach!! It makes me feel super accomplished when I can put crosses through things on the list!!

Prague 2014

So I don't even know where to begin when it comes to this trip!! It was the biggest one we have done in quite a while and I was so excited to go!! I was really sad that our awesome friends weren't able to go with us like they had planned, but sometimes things come up we all know that!! Either way we packed up the car with snacks for the whole 4 day weekend, and lots of books and toys to entertain the little one for the car ride!! Woke up early got some coffee and were on our way!!!

The drive proved to be a very easy one and not nearly as long as we had expected it to end up being!! We only had to take a few stops to stretch our legs and get some Czech Money!

This trip was our first time we have booked an apartment rather than a hotel and I think we do that every time from now on!! It was cheaper than booking a room and had two bed rooms, a living room, and a kitchen it was really awesome!!! Plus it was only a few blocks from a street car station where we hopped on and rode into town on each day!! We were really impressed with the Apartment and dealing with the man who owned it.

Once we were all settled in and more relaxed after the long drive we were on our way into town to see a few sights and find ourselves dinner!!! Having not prepared before we left the apartment we were kind of wandering aimlessly and didn't find a whole lot of the interesting sights but did enjoy the culture of Prague ( Our now favorite city in Europe) And I also forgot to bring my camera which is a shame cuz the little restaurant we ate at was adorable and the food was devine!

 The next day we headed out after having some yogurt and grapes for breakfast for a full day of sight seeing this time with map and Camera in tow!!!

This picture helps show just how amazingly large the buildings in Europe are!! This was my favorite in Prague their national museum, it was BEAUTIFUL!!

It was super sunny in the morning so like dummies we left jacket-less, and instantly regretted it. It was COLD!! So we waited out front of H&M until 9 to buy Kyra and I jackets! Than once we were warmed up it was time to get to the adventuring!!

Fried Cheese Sandwich AMAZING!!

Feeding birds fries

In front of the Astrological clock!! We were really fascinated by this clock and ended up buying a mini version for the house!!

We just happened to be in Prague the day of the Avon Breast Cancer awareness event there was live music and PINK EVERYWHERE!!!!

More wandering and the Charles Bridge

Break and selfies in Burger King!!

Rest of the city by tour train!! Kinda like a tour bus but more fun for Kyra!!

After a long long day of walking and enjoying the city everyone was worn out and ready to be back at the apartment!!

6 weeks pregnant :D
