i have some of the best friends.
[is it mandatory for a girl to say that about some of her bff's?!]
like seriously…they are some of the best people that I have ever had in my life.
that makes me feel SO THANKFUL.
from time to time we have girls nights…that usually look something like this…. and this…
BUT…what is even better is being able to plan surprises [annndd have no one spill the beans!]
this year we were able to help put together a surprise party for this lady right here… [who TOTALLY thought no one was doing anything]
thanks to her hubby for instigating the surprise…i’m pretty sure she was a happy camper
so naturally i HAD to bring my camera
because …really…why wouldn’t I bring it?!
well…in order for me to be IN pictures i have to let other people TAKE the pics…
which can prove to be slightly difficult when no one understands back button focus
but, to those that did manage to snap some shots [whether they were good or not] a big huge THANKS!
ahh yes, me with a mouth full of pretzels…that is what happens when random people grab the camera and start snapping away before you finish chewing.
and yes, in all its blurry gloriness…that second photo does a good job of summing up the night.
BUUUUUTTTTT this last photo…yea, this is SO us in all of our glory….
probably one of my favorite photos
i SWEAR we are really normal
or at least as normal as we have to be
and yes….I know some of these photos are blurry and out of focus and not centered and every part of my photographer-self looks at some of them and thinks
‘oh geezz…i totally could have done this-that-and-the-other-thing to get a good shot with good exposure’.
here’s to a fabulous year, more birthdays, and lots and lots of memories & crappy photos
