this weekend, i had the blessing of 
photographing a wedding 
{with mrs. stancy higley} of two beautiful believers
in missouri
as they exchanged vows and began
a new life together.

it was so much fun, 
{albeit incredibly hot & sweaty}
and I can't wait to share some pictures!

seriously- look at them. 
don't they look like they're straight out of a magazine?

fall wreath 2010

like any good DIY-er,
i can't just simply buy holiday decor.

it has to be original! it has to be crafty!
let's be real: it has to be cheap :)

i was happy with last year's 
but wanted to go in a different direction this year.

anyway, here is this year's wreath:

to make it, i simply wrapped different colors 
of burlap & fabric around a wreath form.
next, i cut strips of fabric and bunched them 
into the form of flowers
and topped them off with shiny tacks.

the final touches were acorn bells 
which wrapped around the wreath with twine.

of course, all fall crafts must be done
with a pumpkin spice candle 
warming the apartment with it's familiar
autumn smell wafting through the air.

where are the kolaches?

the start of this year has been so much different
 from the beginning of last's. 
we're a little more established
and are incredibly blessed with good friends.
we're parents to a great little puppy,
and i absolutely love my new job.
all that to say, this year we are truly happy
living here in college station.
(though, to be honest, i am still struggling with my road rage issues
 due to the freakishly slow drivers in this city,
but that's neither here nor there.)

yesterday we ventured to a nearby city, caldwell,
 for the annual kolache festival.
apparently, caldwell is the czech capital of texas.

and of course we brought the baby puppies :)

poor roux slept all day yesterday after we got home.
thankfully roux's best friend clive has a super cool traveling water bowl
(from REI, of course) which he shared with roux.

the only downside to the kolache fest. was the extreme heat...
we are so ready for fall to get here!

labor day: roux makes a friend and digs to china

this is a story about a puppy named roux
and a slightly bigger puppy named nessie.

the happiest puppy named roux

met the prettiest puppy named nessie

and she showed him how to play in the pool.

she showed roux the way

so he gave it a try

and he played, and played...

and he played, played, played.

roux loved this pretty lady named nessie

 so the played chase all through the yard.

yes roux is the happiest puppy

and he loves to play all day

and he probably dreams of going back to see

our friends on white rock lake.

bath time with roux man

when we adopted mr. roux, a black lab mix, we naturally thought he would be a water dog.  
you know, that he couldn't resist a good romp through the sprinklers or making a big splash in the pool.  well, this silly little pup could absolutely do without the water it seems... 
though he is getting better (i think?).

saturday is roux-gets-a-bath-so-he-doesn't-smell-like-a-lab-and-stink-up-our-apartment-day
and although these photos look like we are absolutely torturing him,
we really do give him perfectly innocent baths.

"daaaaad stop plllleeeaase!"

"i get no respect around here."

"i still really, really love dad!"
