Saving My Pennies

For what you say? Well friends, an embroidery machine!

I have wanted one for as long as I can remember. And now I’m well on my way to getting one! I wasn’t sure where to start though. So I did what I always do when I need experts on a subject, send out a Facebook status asking for suggestions!

I got a lot of great ones from my friends but it was my friend Lauren who had the machine that I thought best fit my needs and wants. As well as future needs. Hello sweet monogrammed baby clothes! She shared all kinds of useful information with me about her machine and I was hooked. She actually has the machine a step up from the one I’m shooting for, but for all intents and purposes they do pretty much the same thing.

She happened to be in town visiting her parents and had her machine with her. She was kind enough to offer me to come see it in action. And she even made me this super cute monogrammed pocket Tee in the process!

Chevron and FSU colors? Perfection!

I was so grateful for her to let me check out how her machine worked. It was definitely a little overwhelming, but I left there so pumped to start working my way towards my own!

I am planning to get the Brother PE770. Squeal! I’ve also bought everything to make a knock off Pottery Barn Bedford Craft Table. Double Squeal!

In the meantime I’m saving my pennies. I plan to call the machine mine in just a few months. I’m dreaming of monograms galore in the meantime!

People Photos of Late

I have been such a slack blogger lately. Forgive me!

Since I haven’t been blogging, what have I been doing? Shooting people! You know, with my camera. I just wanted to take a moment to share some of my favorites shots from the past couple of months, in no particular order.

All these baby announcements isn’t helping my baby fever. I cannot wait until it’s our time to make the announcement. One day!

Sorry that I’ve been MIA lately. I’ve been on vacation, then a work trip and now home so things have been a little off kilter. But I’m back to share some pictures from our vacation to Tampa!

We visited our friends David & Chloe for a quick weekend getaway. The last time we saw them was at their wedding in March!

Friday night we went to the Rays vs. Giants game.


The James’. Oh, and I cut off my hair! 10-11” of it. So much nicer in the Summer!

We stood around for two hours before game time because David wanted to get Buster Posey’s jersey signed. Buster is a fellow FSU Alumni.



Then the discouragement started to set in when it didn’t look like Buster would be signing anything that night.



However I was able to get a ball signed by Sergio Romo of the Giants.


Hey Buster…bye Buster. Bummer!


David did however get to meet Raymond the mascot! He wasn’t thrilled. Ha!

The Rays unfortunately didn’t pull out a “W” but we had fun anyway!

Saturday evening was spent hanging out at the Johnston residence. David manned the grill and fed us a delicious dinner!


Oh, meet Rex! He was such a sweet boy!
