Easter weekend

Too bad Easter no longer involves a 4 day weekend. And I totally boycotted any decoration projects this year. You know, just saving up all my creative energy until I start growing humans. But nonetheless it was a pretty cool weekend.

We saw Em and Stan- cute little newlyweds - on Friday. Car shopped til we dropped on Saturday.

Then went to church just Matt and I on Sunday. Lemme tell you, going to church on a holiday, just you and and your hubby? That made me feel all sorts of married and grown up my friends. Then we shot over to Karen and Tommy's for a Easter celebration.


My sis-in-law Steph looks great and is expecting baby boy #3 in a few weeks. It amazes me that she has worked out through her entire pregnancy.


And my photog pro sister-in-law Ree gave me some points and tips on using my camera. I have a Nikon 3200 and still have yet to take a class. I learned more with her 15 minute lesson than spending hours reading a manual. She found my aperture knob, shutter speed dial and taught me a thing or two about white balance. Of course I can't repeat any of it because I've already forgot :)


And here are two pictures I took in Manual. *GASP*


I'm totally evil for taking this picture...lol.. but he's just so cute I couldn't help myself

Getting 8 kids into one picture.... not so easy.  Figuring out how to take a picture indoors with bad lighting? Also not easy.


Hands down the best part of my weekend was finding my frozen wedding cake. I thought it ended up in a trash can but no, no, my mother-in-law has had the entire time. Can't wait to shove it in Matt's face next month :) Over and out my friends !

Taking group pictures inside is SO HARD! Mine always turn out with such bad lighting! :(
