Life Lately – April ’14

April 23, 2014

Hello, friends, and Happy Hump Day!  Sorry I’ve been absent lately, but I came down with a nasty cough/cold (AGAIN – boo!) this past weekend and I forgot my camera at the studio on Saturday and I’ve still had to work this whole week, so I’ve pretty much been working and sleeping (and watching T.V. and reading).  I don’t even have a post ready for Thrift Style Thursday tomorrow, which makes me so sad because the theme is Happy Hippie / Boho Chic and I had a great outfit planned, so I might just have to share it another day when I am feeling better.

Anyway, I felt really bad leaving you with old posts and radio slience, so I figured I’d share some of the backlog of pictures I have from the past few weeks.  Starting with the week before last, I spent most of the week with my number one girl, Ruby.  We had a mini pre-spring break by going to the park, the beach, a local petting zoo and the Environmental Nature Center.  It was a blast and I took some fun photos!

This girl is getting taller, smarter and more beautiful every day - I am one lucky nanny! :)

I also had the chance to hang out with my sister and my nephews for a little bit during bath time; aren’t these cuties getting so big and handsome?!  Okay, I might be a little biased, but still, bath faces are too adorable!

This past Easter weekend was a ton of fun, too, even though by Sunday I was starting to feel pretty sick.  I was also very annoyed with myself at having forgotten my good camera at work and not having charged my little point-and-shoot camera battery.  But it was still great to get together with the whole family for lunch, and I did manage to take a few shots of my mom’s super cute outfit for Easter (and she took a picture of my outfit in which I look slightly awkward, but that’s beside the point…)!

I am already feeling a little better each day, so I’m sure this cold won’t last long.  At least I hope not because I have a ton of posts planned, and even a video or two, so stay tuned!  How are you guys braving the change in weather?  Does anyone else get sick this time of year, or do you have any good tips for avoiding it??

As always, thanks for reading!  – Kristi :)
