this week has been a whirlwind. a beautiful whirlwind for the most part, though. last friday we had off work for good friday. my beautiful friends, carly and sara came to visit and we had such a great day! we went shopping, got our nails done, and just caught up on each others’ lives! i wish they lived closer because i need more days like that! haha. i love my girls!

saturday kicked off my first wedding of the season! robbie and emily were amazing and their day was so much fun!!! i’m so happy for  both of them and wish them a happily ever after! sunday was easter and i got to see alexi, but no amanda :(. she had too much work and couldn’t come home! 🙁 booo!!! summer is right around the corner for them. hopefully i’ll be seeing a lot more of them!

the rest of the week went by in a flash – which rhymes with nicki! haha. get it? i guess you’ll only get it if you watch the at&t commercials hahaha. but for real, where did the week go? work was nice and not as hectic! it was fun to have few kids and goof around more. i still missed a lot of my kiddies, though! i also got to help out with my friend nikki on her shoot. she is so sweet! so glad to have a friend in this industry. i can promise that you’ll hear more about her soon! 🙂 the rest of the week was a blur which brings us to today! ahhh!!! today is the day of my not-so-secret-anymore project!!! i’ve been working hard to put together a styled bridal shoot!!! the theme is mad hatter and it’s going to be a blast! whitney and i are traveling up to maryland to get some gorgeous wedding dresses and make some magic happen! while i won’t lie and say this has been totally stress-free, i will say that i know it’s going to be worth it. i would appreciate any prayers, though, because i am a ball of nerves about this STILL haha. i just want everything to turn out great! haha. what i need is a chill pill. or some wine! haha.

well, i’m off to maryland. wish me luck!!! happy friday (again – gosh they come and go so quickly!)!!!
