A long awaited visit...

I was finally able to go and spend some time with Nina and the girls for a few days this week. We had such a good time wondering through antique shops, sipping our coffee, watching movies, relaxing at home , playing at the beach, and most importantly.. our must anticipated photoshoot!! Nina found this field she really wanted to shoot at and it turned out amazing. The girls werent the easiest to work with at times, but we still got some amazing shots out of it. I am a new owner of a pair of 'previously loved' cow boy boots! I found them for super cheap and they were a 'must have'. I decided this would be the perfect time to show them off. Enjoy!

Avery Marie

After not updating the online world in two months, i am now going crazy with new posts! I went and visited my best childhood freind, Melissa, in Oceanside this past week after having her first baby girl! It's still so unreal to me that she has her own little baby. Each time i think about her, i still remember the times we would run around Tiwinkle park together, our long talks about our boyfreinds when we first started dating, that time she tried to make me fall out of a tree.. you know, the good ol' days. Melissa and Stephen are already such great parents and i had such a great time spending the day with them. Not to mention little Avery is adorable.

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Giovan Palanco

Two weeks ago Chloe and Giovan got married!!! It was such a spectacular wedding and totally represented their style. They got married in the Alexandria Hotel in downtown LA. Its an old hotel with lots of history, filled with spectacular and colorful ballrooms. Chloe designed and sewed her own dress, which made it even that much more brilliant. Chloe and I picked out the fabric for the bridesmaid dresses, and her mom made them for us! What a talented family! I am in love with my dress, and i am in fact wearing it to my cousins wedding tonight! I cant wait to see how the professional pictures turn out. Congrats to the newly weds!

San Diego birthday trip

We took a "road trip" down to San Diego for Josh's birthday in November, so he wanted to take me back down for my birthday as well. We explored Coronado Island and had tons of fun just spending time together. We brought my new tripod and wireless remote and messed around for a while taking pictures together.

I'm 20! .. 2 months ago

So i have just not been very motivated lately to keep up my blog. Most of the people who follow my blog are friends with me on facebook so I guess i've just figured its easiest just to post pictures there. But at the same time i enjoy telling a story, so lets see how fast i can update everyone on the past two months of my life.
Josh and i planned on celebrating my birthday with a few friends at the park, but it ended up being a rainy day so we had it at his parents house instead which turned out to be a lot of fun. the boys made an authentic mexican meal with homemade guacamole, carne asada, etc. We ended up playing an intense game of Mad Gab (always a great choice) and of course.. the girls dominated.

Look at the delicious cookies batstone made for me! shes so creative :)
the boys very intently trying to beat us at Mad Gab.. too bad they didnt.

I love my girls
The boys had WAY too much fun with the wii

The New Addition

Last week I was able to spend some time with a good friend and see baby Kendra for the second time. She is such a tiny little thing, about 3 months old now. I used to watch her older sister Natasha every day throughout the week, starting when she was 7 months old! Its amazing to be able to witness a child's growth. Natasha is now 3 1/2 and loving preschool. She is such a joy, and its amazing to be able to carry on a full conversation with her now. Here are a few pictures from my visit. You can see how much Natasha adores baby Kendra
