Megan + Jaren Wedding

I am so happy Megan and Jaren wanted me to be a part of their special day. These two are perfect for each other in every way & made my job pretty easy.


A Fancy Night

 Rather than going through the hassle of prom this year, we decided to get a little group together to have a classy & fancy evening down in the city. This night was truly magical and I loved every second of it. 
And of course, my camera made quite a few appearances throughout the night.
 if I had a flower for every time he made me laugh, I would have an extensive garden
 the evening began with the girls getting all fancied up together (and having a little shameless pre-photoshoot by the neighbor's pretty plants)
doing little twirls in this dress was one of the many joys of tonight.
we ventured down to the strip and started off  by taking pictures at the Bellagio Gardens before dinner
after walking around in the conservatory for a while, we headed out to watch the fountains
 thank you very much random bystander for offering to take such a great blurry picture 
(unfortunately it's one of the only pictures we got the whole night of all of us)
 this picture was taken about 1 second before the crazy wind made the fountains spray all over us
 im not sure if this counts as a group picture or not
low key all the girls relieved themselves of the foot pain that comes from 2 hours straight of walking in heels at dinner time. (it's okay, the table cloth was long enough that nobody would ever know) 
 following dinner at Maggiano's we went to Serendipity 3 and indulged in frozen hot chocolate (it's one thing that never gets old).
 and I can't forget about the little dance party we had on the way out
 classic bathroom shot.
 to finish off the night the boys got tickets to enjoy the city view from the top of the stratosphere
I just love living in this beautiful city & I love fun dates like this. Tonight was the best.

I wasn't planning on posting a video but I couldn't help but share this little glimpse of the evening


San Gennaro

 It was one of the best nights ever at the semi-annual San Gennaro Festival. My dinner tonight was literally food samples because I spent about $20 on carnival rides (but its okay!).
At the last festival we were working the Billy's Barbecue booth which was a super fun time and you can read about that here >>
 hobby forever
if we had a ticket for every degree of hotness in this picture, we would have a lot of tickets.

April In Small Squares

This April consisted of:
+7 wonderful days of spring break
+5 surprise paper hearts
+1 photo booth strip
+2 dozen decorated easter eggs
+0 successful assassin killings
+3 scoops of gelato
+1 zion's youth concert and model home excursion
+3 cheers because it's now officially the last month of school



 For as long as I can remember, it has been one of my favorite traditions to attend the semi-annual Zion's Youth concert at the Smith Center. It is so wonderful to be able to hear all of the participant's testimonies through such beautiful and meticulously practiced songs. And of course it made it 1,000x better that this year I got to go with some of the greatest people on this planet :) 
 these pictures were taken in the exact same moment.
Zion's Youth was a 10/10 (so was Jacob's hair)
 They made fun of me and said I would post the foot picture Hannah took. So here it is.
this night was absolutely unforgettable. 


Camera Roll Of The Past 15 Days

 This easter, me and Hannah were basically pro egg decorators. You probably can't see it, but Hannah's yellow egg says "killin' it" (which we are)
 Jacob came across these pretty little cactus flowers on one of his off road excursions…
one of them may or may not have somehow found a new home with my succulents
 yay for playing dress up in the stores #shameless
words don't even begin to describe how much I love Eliza.  
thank you for the insight, Panda. Let's hope it holds true ;)
 And to celebrate me making it through the ACT's + Jacob's first official paycheck we went out for some shaved ice. The picture doesn't do it justice but it was OVERFLOWING- by the time we got out of the parking lot Jacob practically looked like he was attacked by a wild animal or something because of all the red flavoring that made it onto his clothes. 
a significant amount also made it onto our tongues… 
Every spoon = one sample we made Devon serve to us when we visited him at his new job
(not even including the ones that I threw away before Jacob could put them into his little sherbet sculpture)
 He's really not too bad to have around
get excited for this latest project coming soon which entailed things like covering my camera in saran wrap + plastic bags and swirling it with ice cream (proud to say that no damage was done as far as I know)
walks to the park with Hannah have also been a little joy of life lately. 

I'm very happy it's finally my favorite season :')
