Hi darlings. 
Whew, I'm too entirely sleepy for it to only be 10:00! Where did my weekend go? 

As for the title of this post. Today has caught me completely off guard. 

I woke up and forced myself out of bed to find out that Justin had left his phone at home while he was at work :( I've missed talking to him all day, but to my surprise, I've managed just fine! Love him to death, but I guess I've been so busy that I haven't really thought about having my phone in my hand all day. 
To my next surprise, I had lunch with a very long lost friend. We had Mexican, like good times. And we couldn't stop talking! Boy, have I missed her. We both live such completely different lives from that we left in high school but it felt like the same friendship. Surprise!
Next, I came home to try to take my little sister's mind off of her recent break up. (She would totally kill me if she knew I were posting about this!) In order to do this, I took her to play miniature golf on the island! It was the most beautiful day we've had in quite a while. Andrea even wore shorts! Needless to say, we had a blast! We even stopped to get brownie fudge ice cream in a waffle cone. Yum. 
Onto the next surprise, we came home to Dad cooking oysters outside. (Man, it sounds like all I do is eat sometimes!) Anyways, the oysters were delish and my family and I played "Name that Tune", songs from Mom and Dad's past! Whew, they sure did beat us! 
After all of this, I came inside only to find out that I had one thing to do for homework! Surprise!
And thennnn, I got on Facebook and after about an hour or so, I had 3 inquiries about doing photos! SCORE! One of the girls that I spoke to was super sweet! And I hope to be working with her very soon! 
We've been watching the Super Bowl and the only thing I really have to say is that I'm extremely disappointed in Christina's rendition of the National Anthem. It's really disgraceful that on such a huge event, she flubbed up the lyrics! 
Back to my next super surprise, I randomly decided to get on here (at first, I wasn't going to post) and then I received a comment saying that I received an award :)
I haven't gotten one of these in a while and I was so surprised to see that it was a different one other than the Stylish Blogger award! 

A huge thank you to Annika from Annika's Little World!

The Rules: 
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them in your post. {Check!}
2. Tell us seven things about yourself.
3. Award 7 recently discovered new bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received the award.

Seven things: 
(These are so hard!)
1. I photographed my first indoor shoot yesterday! It was so different for me! The weather was horrible outside and I was shooting a newborn so I didn't think risking it was even an option. Looking at the photos now are making me realize that I've expanded so much as a photographer, and I suppose there is only one way to go. {UP}
(They will be posted once I play with them some! Indoor shoots allow for some fun editing)

2. I have a serious obsession with modern musicals. Glee, Country Strong, Burlesque (despite Christina!), Chicago, Across the Universe, Moulin Rouge...I could go on! The music is so much fun to sing with while I'm driving. 

3. My Monday's are so hard! I have classes from 8:00 am to 8:30 pm! Yikes :( 
I have lots of breaks in between, but it's so hard to fill the void! Hooray for blog catch up!

4. Up until now, I posted all of these things last night, on Sunday, so I'm now finishing it. 
Sorry procrastination.

5. I'm a lefty :)

6. I get cold very easily, and I'm freezing right now!

7. I cannot stand wearing wet clothing :( like today, it's been raining nonstop and my jeans are soaked & during the summertime, if I go out in the river, I bring a dry set of clothes so I can change when I get in the truck. 

Okay, so that was my 7! ... #2, check!

3. Awards to be shared! 

Sorry if some of these are repeats, I tried really hard to change it up some, but I just love everyone so much :)

I hope y'all have a fabulous remainder of your Monday!
