Spring Fever

This weekend I have been so lethargic I can barely function.
I can't decide if it is allergies mixed with lack of sleep. Or some sort of cold mixed with allergies, and I'm sure lack of sleep this week didn't help either. 
So pretty much all you will get in blog posts are flowers & cupcakes.
♥♥♥
 I ordered a remote for my camera off of Amazon and it came in the mail Friday!
 I love how small and discreet it is.
 Last night Aaron and I were fiddling around with it, it is pretty neat!
 Today I went to my brothers house for a little bit to photograph the trees in his backyard.
 I was amazed at how much more the trees had bloomed from the other day.
 Spring would be my all time favourite season, if it weren't for my pesky allergies.
 I have no clue what kind of tree this is, but the blossoms sure are gorgeous!
 ***
 After a while my allergies started acting up, so I went inside. 
A bouquet of roses that my sister in-law put together. 
{she was the florist for my wedding} 
She pretty much is the most talented person I have ever met, she also did my engagements.
 I love plants.
 This is my niece, we will call her Sanders. Sanders has recently decided she wont let me photograph her face. So instead today let me introduce you to the painted self portrait version of her. She is pretty isn't she??
 I snuck in this shot, I don't know if she meant to show me her face or not. This is a self portrait my other niece {lets call her Louie} I love the paintings they did of themselves.
 This is their mantle. I am in love with these teapots.
 A mixed media portrait done by my sister Kate of my nieces.
 She is also one very talented lady.
 <3
 Louie, Sanders and I went to the gas station for a cold drink. 
Check out the cool wallpaper at their house, I am pretty jealous of the decor at their house.
 This isn't a cherry blossom. I don't know what kind of tree it is, the flowers were about the size of a peanut m&m. They are so pretty though!
 Aaron had a LAN with his co workers today so I was stranded without a car. Luckily I have an awesome mum who took my nieces and I to get cupcakes & nachos.
I don't know why, but I love photographing cupcakes, maybe it is all the different textures?  
 Sanders is trying to hide her face, even though I told her it would be blurry anyways.
 I love all the embellishments on the cupcakes for the different flavours.
I may or may not have had two cupcakes.. They both got squished  before I got home, so I couldn't get any good photographs. BOO. Seriously nothing makes my day better than a cupcake. Oh, and if you haven't already noticed I am kind of in a rut, diet wise. Don't worry I will be back to carrot sticks and diet Dr. Pepper come Monday ;).
Hopefully I kick this sickness too! It has really been draining, I pretty much slept all day today. 
Tomorrow Aaron and I might be going to the aquarium, I really hope that we do.
I have been wanting to take a stab at photographing animals.
I also hope to meet up with a friend at the park, we will see how I am feeling.
{fingers crossed}
I hope y'all had a fabulous weekend!

the photos you took for the cherry blossoms are amazing! it looks like it was a beautiful day. i'm pretty jealous that you have a florist in the family. i would love to be a floral designer but i have a bad habbit of "killing" plants, totally by accident mind you!

I'm really loving your pictures. What lens do you use? I've never had allergies in my life, but today I woke up and my eyes and nose itch and it's runny! what the heck! Is that allergies? And I was hugging my dog and started sneezing. That's so weird for me.

I've been eating really bad too because I'm getting my wisdom teeth removed tomorrow and won't be able to eat solids for a few days :(

Hope you feel better!

Katie said...

I've been debating on getting that remote! You'll have to let me know how it is. Hopefully this means more pretty pictures of yourself! And I totally don't mind the cupcake pictures. Except now I want one. :)

I really want to get a remote for my camera, but I never take photos as much so I don't think I would use it. Your photos are so pretty! We missed you at the party! I hope you are feeling better xoxo
