#Friyay – Our Week in A Nutshell
Welp, we’re full on into January now, and back into the swing of life! Kids are back in school and we are hitting the ground running this week with tons going on! Here what made up our life this week, from the seemingly insignificant to the baby alpaca that stole our hearts. ;)
- Our kids are back in school this week, and we are not only up, but showered, dressed, and out the door before the sun is even up. We would like to think we are morning people, especially since we’ve had kids, but when it is still dark, and cold (by AZ standards) it is tough to be excited to be awake!! Who’s with us?
- Also, on Saturday, we were honored to be able to be a part of an incredible event through the local organization, Foster Arizona. A sweet friend of ours started up this nonprofit a couple of years ago. And it is amazing what they have accomplished since. Foster Arizona exists to connect adoptable kids with their forever families. They create “commercials” for children who are ready to be adopted. Many of these children are school-aged boys, which can be a very difficult demographic to place. Friends, we can not even begin to tell you how helping create these commercials has affected our lives and we plan on posting a lot more on this blog about these sweet children. But for now we just wanted to recap the super fun time we had on Saturday! Foster AZ put on an event at the Wildlife World Zoo in Litchfield Park, AZ for tons of kids that live in group homes all over the Valley. We filmed for four videos that day, and shot photos of the event. We can’t show those sweet littles on this blog, but the animals (and our own kids) were almost as cute!! Seriously, friends, just enjoy this baby alpaca that we got to feed and pet. Let it sink in how cute he is so he will make your Friday just a little better… ahhhh!!!!
Doesnt he look like a Disney character??? Oh man, Erin was in love. Also, check out the sweet baby deer that also could be in a Disney movie. I mean, really. We were ready to take these guys home with us!
- Last night, we had so much fun hanging out at the Open House for The Paseo wedding venue. Have we talked about how much we love The Paseo? Pretty sure we have. It was so much fun to hang out with some awesome vendors, eat some delicious food, and chat with some newly engaged couples!! We met so many fun brides- and grooms-to-be who are planning the weddings of their dreams!
Tomorrow will be our first day off in almost 2 weeks. It has been a busy start to the year, that’s for sure! We hope you have an amazing weekend, and make sure to come back next week for some more wedding awesomeness!! <3
