not a justin beiber fan

We celebrated Malee's (Emmie's) 9th birthday this past weekend. I find it more difficult to shop as they get older. We just went out and bought her clothes. I think she might be at that age where fashion matters? My mom bought her Justin Beiber gear. Malee says she's not a fan. We were dumbfounded. A girl who isn't fond of JB??! OMG! I found a great summer outfit and it was pink. I hope pink works for her. At that age it was blue for me. Yep BLUE! I grew up with boys, so I was a bit of a tom boy. Who would have thought Lisa? A tom boy? I liked basketball and soccer and I played against-boys! One time my cousin kicked the soccer ball into my face. A girl would cry, right? No. I chased him around the yard for a minute until one of the other boys held me back to stop me. I was stubborn too. He was the cousin that I always got into fights with. And I'm talking pushing and shoving.  But we love eachother-it was a love/ hate type of thing. Thanks to my mom and dance I found a girly side and it stuck with me. My mom wasn't a fan of contact sports. And any chance she had to put me into a puffy, frilly dress -she did it. My dad wanted me to be a boy, so he was thrilled that I liked basketball and soccer.

Haha! Take a look at this outfit! Wierd? Cute?

Nina + Bryan Meadow Creek Farm Wedding

We started the day with sun however we heard the rumbling thunder in the background during the ceremony and started to sprinkle during the reception. It was a humid September day and was sunny outside when I walked into the wedding venue. Bridesmaids laughter, sweet music, and popping of champagne were starting around the Bride's room. The girls were in their matching floral monogrammed robes and helping each other get their makeup done. They looked stunning!

My favorite part was their first look. Nina and Bryan have such a sweet relationship and they celebrated with so much love and joy through the day. I adored how sweet and caring they were during the day, he couldn't keep his eyes off of her during the first look. And she teared up, but had a huge smile standing with him during the first look. It was the best! I loved capturing them!!!

It was truly an honor to be capturing their day! It was such a beautiful wedding! Bryan and Nina were surrounded by so much love and joy fr…

Tips on taking a toddler to Disney World

I got some funny looks when I told people we were taking Haylee to Disney. I know some would say she is too small among many other things, however we did it! Did we get lucky? Maybe! She was the perfect age to ride the rides and meet the characters. Some people thought Disney would not have small rides for children, but maybe surprised that it's the best place for toddlers! The trip was so worth it! Haylee smiled and laughed the entire time. We made so many great memories and we can't wait to go back! If you're here to read all the details on how or what we did at Disney World then stick around!
What we packed:

-Disney clothes. We made our own shirts for the trip. Haylee wore a shirt with Minnie Ears and her monogram. It cost us only $12.  I also bought our Mickey ears from the Disney Store Outlet at the mall on sale for $7! They are around $20 at the parks. You could also purchase Disney character shirts at your local retail store. Buying shirts at Disney World can run y…
