shopping with mom & sis!

Today i had plans with my mom & sister. I love spending time with them, just the three of us. :) We met with two photographers for her wedding. I met my sister at mom & dad's at 10:30 & we road together to the first appointment. Mom got there about 15 minutes later, she was coming from church choir practice. This first appointment was with Aaron of Eye Wander Photo. I grew up with him in church youth group & i remember him first getting into photography back then. It was good to see him! He is a fantastic photographer! Seriously! Love his work! Very creative! Michelle also loved his work! We had a great time visiting with him & looking at his photography. :)

After that, we headed to Perkins Rowe to meet dad & mike (michelle's fiance) for lunch. At first we went to California Pizza Kitchen but it would be a 15 minute wait & we had to meet the other photographer in less than an hour, so we headed to La Madeleine's instead. Yay. I love La Madeleine's. I had the small potato soup & a petite ceasar salad. Yum!

Then Dad & Mike left & the three of us met Amanda of Amanda Meyer Photography at Starbucks. I love her! She was my wedding photographer & she is a true sweetheart. :) She was such a great help at my wedding, i just love her to death! So we had fun visiting with her.

Then we went to Charming Charlie! I have been dying to go there & everyone keeps telling me i need to! :) It is an accessories shop FULL of purses, jewelry, hats, etc. LOVE IT! It is divided up by color, which i LOVE - they have red section, a green section, blue, aqua, pink, silver, etc! It was very crowded & hot though! The prices are hard to beat! Very reasonable. :) I got a birthday gift for a friend. I hope she likes it!

I also was a dork & took a picture of myself trying on a hat. i like hats. My hair looks kind of fonky in the second pic though. :) I didn't buy it. But i kind of liked it...

Then we passed through Barnes & Noble & i got a few cards... & then we left. I was SO TIRED from staying up late last night & waking up early this morning! I got home around 4 & took a nap. Had a sweet conversation with Brad first. He is so good to me! I love him!

Then i cooked dinner. I had yummy pork chops in the crockpot & made parmesan mashed potatoes to go with it. YUM! You can find that recipe here. Seriously - easiest & best pork chops EVER!

Hope your day was wonderful!


  1. I am going to have to tell my sister's about Charming Charlie... especially my youngest one. She LOVES accessories. My parents don't live far from Perkins Rowe, so we tend to go over there and goof off a lot when I come to visit. Maybe I'll get to go sometime in October in between my sister's wedding festivities.

  2. I love La Madeleines! I've only been there a couple times, but it's so good!


  4. That Charley pLace looks like so much fun to shop in!! I like that hat! I love that you used the word fonky..hilarious!
