The Weekend: BBQ, Rodeo & Hipstamatic

This weekend was one of those weekends you wish would never end...delicious food, good times with family, great weather and fun! This weekend we went to my husbands home town to visit his family and take in the local fair - it was perfect! First thing on Saturday morning we loaded up and headed to Lexington for a trip to eat the #1 BBQ in the state of Texas - oh my Lord, was it good! And it was exactly as I imagined it to be...a tiny building with seating inside and out, the pits all outside wafting delicious smelling smoke from the fires, and people smiling and just happy to be there. Snow's BBQ is open one day a week - Saturday and they are open from 8:30 til it's gone - and believe me when I tell you, it runs out quick. We got there at around 9:30 and they were already out of pork, and by 10:30 or so they were out of everything but brisket. They start the fire around 4pm on Friday and let it get good and hot and then throw the BBQ on around midnight and let it cook all night. People come from all over for the BBQ voted in 2008 as the Best in Texas. Here are a few shots from Saturday morning.

Later that night we went to the fair and watched the rodeo. I choose not to bring my camera, but recently downloaded the Hipstamatic app on iPhone, so I wanted to try that out. OMG! I love it!!! It's so fun and you can download different lenses and packages - check out a few of the shots...

Groovy, right?!?! We had such a great weekend and hope that you did as well!
Have a fabulous day~

Week 41 | I Heart Beef Photo Challenge & $250 Giveaway!

I am nowhere close to being a vegetarian so when I saw the prize for this weeks I Heart Faces challenge, I had to enter. I am however, very conscious of where my food comes from and so I thought I would enter this...

My husbands' parents live on a small cattle farm down south and we love to visit. Cattle have sweet faces and I like to take tons of pictures while I'm there. But these sweet faces are where our food comes from, so I never forget that and am always thankful. Amen.
Head on over the I Heart Faces for more photos for this challenge!

Happy Saturday!
I just saw the new challenge on Photo Freaks blog - Hearts - so I thought I would enter this...

My sweet friends Natalie & Aaron let me take some belly pictures before their precious son was born.

Working on a new and improved blog (whew! I've got a lot to learn!) since I'm having so much fun! I want to make it something of my own, so I will let you know when (and if) I ever get it finished!
Hope y'all are having a great weekend~

Constructive Feedback Friday

Happy Friday! Another week has flown by and the weekend is upon us...hmmmm...what to do?

Well, I will be spending time with my two favorite boys (gorgeous husband and lovable furr-baby) and hopefully take some fab pix! I guess a little house cleaning is also in order - boo!

It's constructive feedback Friday over at I heart Faces this week, so I've chosen this picture - a photo I took of my best friends son and his girlfriend (aren't they CUTE?!?). I would love any feedback and CC you can give me! I'm not sure about the skin tones as my monitor is not calibrated yet (working on it though).

Have a Fabulous weekend!

Do you ever just feel super lucky?! I've been having that feeling for days now. My husband and I are blessed with wonderful family and when you get to spend time with them it makes you appreciate it all the more. His parents were in town to visit this past weekend and we enjoyed having them so much! They are full of love and happiness that we found each other!
My parents live pretty far away, but we talk alot and they are coming for the first time to our house on Christmas - I already can't wait!!! I'm like a little kid I'm so excited! They are also thrilled for us and love him just like they've known him forever!

Here is a family photo from our recent wedding taken by our FAB photographer Jeff Persichette (Frisco Photography)...

Appreciate your family every single day. I do.

Have a fabulous day!

Hip Hip Horay - it's Friday!!!

This week has gone by in a flash, but I'm still super happy it's Friday! My sweetie got a new truck this week, so we went for ice cream and a joy ride last night - the sweet pup even got to go - he loves the wind in his face!

My husbands parents are coming in this weekend, so lots of cleaning and straightening to do. But first, I have to finish up the week strong!

OH! And it's fix it Friday - here is my fix for today's shot taken by Kelly Hoskins ( .



Check out I heart Faces for more fixes!

I am going to try and take lots of pix this weekend and will blog all about it next week!

Have a fabulous day!
