whew 08

another extraordinary week in the anderson household. oh, snaps!

so here are some of my highlights…

i enjoyed another baby shoot and prom night…

almost ready for father’s day…can’t wait to see bobby’s face when he discovers what we’ve been up to…

my body is continually sore from new workouts…somethings IS working!

currently painting ayna’s room and redecorating the girls’ playhouse…

prepping for hawaii (because i refuse to be the lightest brown girl there, woohoo!)

resisting shopping temptations (yes, it’s actually an effort, and i’m succeeding)

having fun at church (sunday school is a delightful thing for ara, ayna loves all the snacks everyone gives her, and bobby and i are ever more encouraged to be better Christians/parents/spouses/friends/whatever God wants us to be)

just enjoying my little ladies…this summer is packed FULL of activities…(see photos above)

AND! this is all on top of all the regular duties and expectations that come with the territory. 🙂

*okay, taking a breather here*

even though i’m a tad bit exhausted…

God is good.

…and i’m ready for more!!!

a whirl of a week.

this week has gone by like a hurricane! i snapped away like a maniac for the kids’ photo-books, some photography promos, and my first prom shoot. so thankful all went rather grandly.

in the midst of this, i started an 8 week challenge of stricter/healthier eating and no frivolous shopping. i’m gearing up for the family vacation to hawaii this july. IF i reach my goals, i get a shopping spree and a week of absolute indulgent eating. 😉 cheer me on and watch the countdown located on the bottom of my site, woohoo!

now to prep for this week. it’s gonna be another glorious jumble of life, love and the pursuit of happiness.

God is good.


reaching goals…so sweet!

woohoo! several little achievements attained, and i’m excited to try even harder this coming month. here’s a few i’m proud of…

– another 3/4 inch off (ara’s here reminding me of the scrumptious items that can hinder my progress…thanks??)

– learning more techniques to make my photography fun and unique.

– home projects: hoping to post pics of ara’s room! it’s a trip.  just like her. 🙂

– relaxing. seriously. i’ve enjoyed candles, bubbles, and lovely soothing music at least twice this month. THAT is a big deal. i’m way nicer now. ha!

– organization/decorating/cleaning: this stuff excites me. it feels good to know where things are. to know that i won’t be embarrassed if unexpected folks stop by. and thrills the mess out of me when a room is NICELY done. (thanks, pinterest!) but of course, there’s always room for improvement. always.

– cherishing my family, my husband, my life, and my God.
