Happy Monday morning to you all! How are you doing today? Me, I'm recovering from a crazy, busy weekend. Story of my life lately. But it's all good, it's all so good.
Friday started off great with our weekly meeting before school of our FCA group. FCA is Fellowship of Christian Athletes and we have a group of about 10-12 kids show up every Friday morning to talk about our faith and walk with God. This past Friday morning, my Pastor came to talk with the kids. He is awesome with them, gets right down to their level and is so open & honest with them. The kids love it when he comes.
I had a fabulous date night on Friday with my Dream Boy. We went grocery shopping! Actually, it's not as bad as it sounds......we do have fun when we're together. We picked out dinner and came home fixing it while putting away groceries and then settling in for our weekly Netflix fix. We are currently working through House of Cards, just starting on season 2. Not sure how many seasons are in it this series, but it is one that grabs your attention & you have to pay close attention to follow all the twists & turns in it.
Saturday was the busiest day of our weekend. Dream Boy headed off on a bike ride & I headed off to our prom venue to set up for portraits. We met back up at home and then headed into town together to celebrate a very special birthday. Dream Boy's Great Aunt turned 100 on Saturday & her church had a cake & ice cream open house for her.
Aunt Eleanor is on the left and my mother-in-law is on the right. Mom's mom, was Aunt Eleanor's sister.
We walked into the church and were amazed at the display table. She had the original box with her wedding dress & veil stored inside, a dress from when she was a baby, her dress from her high school graduation and a dress from her wedding that she called her "going away" dress. Several pictures were scattered around the table of her in her wedding dress, her graduation dress and then pictures of her with her sisters and mom. She had them stored in her cedar chest and upon her recent move, they were found again and she proudly displayed them.
Aunt Eleanor just recently decided to move from her apartment into a senior assisted living center, but don't let that fool you. She is still very independent, only taking one prescription and that has just come about in the last year. She attends church regularly and is very active.
Saturday night I was the portrait photographer for our high school prom. The kids and parents of the junior class worked hard all day getting the venue jazzed up and it turned out so nice. The kids had a great time!

Don't they all look so nice all dressed up? It's amazing how different they all look when they dress up, just so grown up!
Sunday morning we headed off to church and stayed afterwards for an all church potluck. Aren't those the best? So many dishes and good food to chose from, why does it seem you never have a big enough plate?
We headed home and this girl, spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch.
I was just feeling like I was recouping from the senior trip last weekend and then prom hit me and I felt like I was starting all over again. But a 2 hour nap works wonders on a cloudy, gray, cold Sunday afternoon.
This week will be spent editing pictures from prom and getting my order together, along with setting up a group session for my 2017 Senior Models.
How was your weekend? Got any big plans for this week?
Well, as always, I hope you have a wonderful week, thank you for stopping by, even those of you who "secretly" read my blog. LOL!
