how do the weekends fly by so quickly? and for that matter, how does time fly by so fast? the weeks seem to just disappear. even when i'm trying to really live in the moment, i can't seem to really grasp it.
friday, tom and i took the day off to drive across the state and check out the *junk jaunt*. the name is entirely appropriate. we sifted through tons of junk to find a few treasures. it was an awesome day for the two of us regardless. we drove 500 miles, and just being in central nebraska, forces a person to slow down. i hadn't been in the sandhills for years. tom rides the sandhills every year, so i think he enjoyed showing me some of the highways they ride. i took my camera with, but didn't pull it out once. i did put all of our finds together to snap a photo.
and because all of us who dig junkin' know, you have to share how much you spent...that's what makes seeking and finding the good stuff even sweeter. i only spent $32! i can't wait to put the little pink chair in my studio! and the frames will go up on the frame wall. i've collected vintage sporting goods for years and years, and have quite a collection. i hope to use it all in our basement family room some day. i just don't want it to look like applebey's! so i haven't put it all up yet! i do adore vintage sporting goods.
saturday was a super busy day with photoshoots and a quick shopping trip for supplies for an assignment and a shower gift. plus the nebraska game was on....but we won't talk about that. can't wait to share some photos from saturday. lots of fun.
yesterday, tom and kirby went to kansas city for the nascar race. i envisioned getting lots of work done while he was gone....well, i did accomplish a lot, just never as much as i envision! i went to church, got my hair done, did a family shoot, and finished 2 assignments. our pastor is such an awesome teacher. i have been taking notes and i just feel like i'm learning so much. and i love to learn. plus, i'm just so thankful for our church in general. tonight, they're having a baby shower for brooke and greyson. i think it's sweet that they are having it for a 4th baby.
i recently took photos of brooke's friend krista's kids. so adorable! you may remember her daughter from the cape photos-
what can i say? they are precious.
i had never done a photoshoot on a tuesday morning at the museum garden before, so i didn't realize that tuesday morning was a work day for the volunteers. what a wonderful group of gardeners! no wonder the gardens always look so beautiful!
on thursday, my friend lisa aka glue came over with sammy, and we took a few photos. we also had a nice lunch and talked scrapbooking. so refreshing! it made me want to scrapbook!
funny story about the vintage truck. i had taken one of the girls to my vet and noticed this amazing vintage orange truck behind the vet's office. my pal donna works there, so i asked her about the truck. she tells me it's dr's. so i proceed to ask him if i can use it as a photo prop sometime, and he says that would be fine. so on friday, glue and i decide it would be cute to put sam in the truck. we stop by the office, to ask if we can use the truck. donna takes me back to what i'm assuming is going to be his office, but it's not his office. doc looks up from his stool, where he is operating on a very knocked out cat! i will forever have this picture of that cat in my head! eek. so we drove to doc's and proceeded to use the truck as it sat, in front of doc's house!
i have so many more photos that i am anxious to share. so i'll be back with more tomorrow. i know some of you are patiently waiting for your sneak peeks. thanks for your patience!
have a great monday! God bless!
