kiengkham's korner: weekly photos

Our maternity photos! These are a few of my favorites. It was challenging taking photos of my husband and myself, but they turned out well. We used a tripod and self timer for the photos. I wanted to keep the photos as simple as possible.  I wanted it out in the natural space with lots of trees and greenery around. It also captures my love for the country outdoors, which you can find easily here. I was 27 weeks in these pictures.

Souwan and I attended our church picnic. We had so much fun playing games and eating good food. I'm still thinking about the delicious food! We even had a deviled egg contest where my friend Mark took first and I took runner up. Who knew I could make deviled eggs?!

We did really good on coupons this week. Look how much Sprite we have! Thru my pregnancy it has been difficult to stay away from Cheerwine and Sweet Tea, but Sprite has been my companion haha. The sprite was free!
Don't forget our diapers, they were $1.79 a pack! I also got a nude eyeshadow palette from Physician's Formula and scott toilet paper. It is rare we get toilet paper for a great deal, $3.16 a pack!
 
Before coupons: $113.78 After coupons: $35.93

We are in the home stretch, 3rd trimester!!!!! YAY!!!! It's flying by. Of course, I get this cute app with these cute maternity stickers for photos in the last trimester. Oh well. I still like my lame board haha.
 
We had our check up this past Tuesday. Haylee Marie is growing perfectly. I learned some of the weird pregnancy symptoms are normal. I blacked out in the grocery store and freaked out, but come to find out it's normal! The doctor said I was standing in one spot too long and I was lacking good blood flow. And, we all laughed about my fainting story. It will be a good memory to tell Haylee.
 
We also had our sugar test done, plus a tdap shot. Two needles in one day! I'm going to brag on myself and say I was awesome. The sugar test drink (pic below) tasted like fruit punch, but with extra sugar and a weird after taste. We need to invent a better drink lol.

my look back on 2017

2017 was a fantastic year! Sorry but there are ton of photos. More than years past!! We did so much this year and I wanted to get it all in. I love documenting our memories and being able to look back, reflect and cherish all of these moments.  It is the best part of this blog. I LOVE being able to look at these photos and go back to that time for a second. It's so cool how you look at a photo and all these feelings from that moment flood back to you!! SO MUCH FUN! I hope ya'll had a great year as well and if not... there is much to look forward in the New Year! It's a new beginning!

I'm probably going to write a long blog so sorry!

She did not want to come back inside. Souwan celebrated with a low key birthday at home with his new table grill. The Rowan Museum had an awesome exhibit on Cheerwi…

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…
