My Weekend

Thank you all for your sweet comments, tweets & emails about my Blogiversary! It's so fun hearing from you and getting your feedback. I'll post the winner of the giveaway this Friday! If you haven't entered, there's still time!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was great, and busy! We went up to the foothills Friday after work and spent the weekend visiting old friends and of course, spending time with my favorite little man, Phillip! He's so cute, I can't believe his 1st birthday is just a few weeks away. Where does the time go? Although I missed seeing my parents (they were out of town), it was great spending so much time with my sister and Phillip. 

He is a little glimpse of my weekend in photos...

Watching the sunrise over the American River canyon...up early for a productive day! 
Capturing the camellia blossoms in the morning light - practicing shooting in manual mode!
Treated myself to a latte after my morning run!
oatmeal with coconut flakes, walnuts, cinnamon and brown sugar
Breakfast & coffee with a view! It was so warm, I sat outside on the deck and enjoyed the sunshine for an hour! 
My friend Sarah's baby shower, her daughter is due next month! We've been friends since I was 4 years old!
I didn't get out my big camera because we were too busy playing!
It's hard to take a selfie and convince an 11 month old to smile at the same time! 
Could he be any cuter?
My photography homework was capturing motion - so Andrew brought his skateboard to act as my subject and Phillip wanted to get in on the fun. He loved it!

 // Not pictured: our sushi dinner on Friday with one of my good friends and her boyfriend, my 4 mile run Saturday morning, load after load of laundry, and a great night Saturday playing darts and pool in the "man cave" at my sister & Josh's house! //

It was a great weekend! I love spending so much time with my sister, Phillip and some old friends! I hope you all had a great weekend, too. 


  1. My favorite way to eat oatmeal involves coconut flakes.

    I really like the 2nd picture of your BF skateboarding w/ the kiddo -- it's a good one!

    Sounds like the perfect weekend to me!

  2. Phillip is so cute!! Almost 1 years old already??? WOW! That is so crazy!
