Sneak Peek

Monday mornings used to be my enemy. I mean they still aren't my favorite but last night Jon and I were talking about how new weeks don't scare us anymore because we are liking where our lives are going. I am coming to work earlier and getting to watch the sunrise which is pretty darn cool. As we were going to bed I totally forgot that I had wanted to do a video blog with Jon this weekend, answering the questions on last week's post. Between work, travel, etc, I know we won't get to it this week. Maybe next weekend.

So despite having lots to do, I slept a lot this weekend. Like two naps on the couch which is RARE for me. Jon doesn't mind because he can watch football in silence haha. 

Because I am too antsy and can't wait to show you...here's a sneak peek of our family photos with Jen Stamps from Saturday :-)




I was naive to think fall was here to stay...it was SO hot. Ernie was a trooper and I can't wait to see what she got. Now if only Ernie's acting/modeling career would take off, I could quit my day job!

Other tidbits from the weekend...

Double date night #ootd

Sweet Ty Guy...seriously you look at this little guy and he smiles ear to ear

Saturday night we went to one of my childhood best friend's wedding. This wedding was 8 1/2 years in the making and absolutely gorgeous.

Honestly, there is nothing more precious than a Christ centered marriage. Their ceremony was so encouraging and they are an inspiring couple. 



No such thing as too much chevron (truth because I wore this dress in family pictures too haha)

My parents and us

I think it is so much fun to go to weddings when you are married. You really appreciate all the time and effort that goes into planning the whole thing, and you get to sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself.  I especially love going to weddings with this hottie...

3 married ladies (you may recognize my bff Alyssa from her wedding pictures!)

Sunday was celebrated at church and cheering on the Browns with some fellow Cleveland-ers. A few people commented on my Instagram photo about us being Browns fans...Jon lived in Cleveland his entire life until moving to Texas to go to Bayor. He is no fair weather fan!



I find myself wanting to 100% relax in my own home when we have downtime on the weekends. During the week is when I try to get my errands and chores done so we can have us time on the weekends. More naps, Breaking Bad, Scrabble, playing with Ernie, back rubs, bible time is what we look forward to. Unfortunately that means tonight we have some yard work and projects to do around the house. 

This is an exciting time for our family and can't wait to share this season with you all.

oh girl I'm with you on all this! I feel like we appreciate weddings more and have more fun at them ever since our own. Also, loving that you are a Browns fan! I'm not, but my husband is from there (it's only 2 hrs from us now) and he'd appreciate it I'm sure. The browns need all the help they can get! ha ha ;)

What a fabulous weekend! I LOVE those preview pics - what an amazing photographer and you guys and Ernie look so cute :)


And I agree - never too much Chevron!

The Arizona Russums said...

Yes. I try to get any and everything done on weekdays, even if it is exhausting, so I can have weekends to relax. I even try to workout 3-5 times M-F so I don't have to think about going to the gym on a Saturday or a Sunday. Yay for being home!

Jessi Bridges said...

I LOVE going to Christian weddings! It's always so awesome to watch 2 people enter into a Christ centered marriage, hear the pastor proclaim the blessing of marriage and Christ and it's always a good reminder for us married folks too :)
