Past Week. .

So this past week I got to spend lots of time in my home town,  Metairie, Louisiana. . . I stayed at my friend/cousin's ;) house and also spent time with a few other cousins whom I love dearly. It was so nice seeing them without worrying about the day going away and not seeing them anymore. My little sister Emily, tagged along so she could spend time with her cousin as well. All in all, it was a very nice visit and had fun*.  Stayed up late ( every night we didn't get to sleep until after two and three in the morning ), watched movies, and just spent time with each other.  Along with snapping photos so the memories can last even longer. God has blessed me with such great friends and who knew, they're my cousins too! :) . . . So here are a few photos of this past week. :) 

It starts with cute pink tote bags. :)


Awww. . . My babies are growing up too fast.  It feels like yesterday when my Emmy and Brandon were three. .  

Love ya Sarah! ( note: there's gonna be a lot of grainy photos. These were taken on my iPod. Not a canon or nikon. Lol )

Every night was movie night!


She loved her gift! :D

 Okay. . . this freak of a guy was on the wall of the room I had to sleep in. I didn't know what to do. I wasn't about to sleep that night knowing it was just staring at me. 

So someone gave me this wonderful idea. . . Oh yes. suffocated by a pillowcase. haha ( thumbs up )

Late night. . we start to look very unappealing. haha ;)

We painted our nails and they seriously came out awesome! I love pattern nails. especially these light pastel colors. . . blue, purple, blue, purple. . etc  (you get it)

 We get crazy and delirious at night. . No, we didn't eat the marshmallows. it would only been better if Katey would have been with us to make it even more interesting. 

I wrote that for Katey. . . I was getting really sad without my sister. 

"Girl, you just didn't" 

 She gets disgusted by chewing gum. . . I couldn't get enough of it

 This ones for Kayla. 

So that's about it! It felt a lot longer than 5 days. . and that's good. My summer;s just as busy as ever. I still have so much stuff planned. :) And I like it that way. 

Y'all have a wonderful weekend and Fourth of July!!

Beauty of the Cross

This has to be one of my favorite songs lately. ( but might I add my list of my favorite songs is very long ). . . The lyrics of this song, just makes me want to lift my hands and give God all glory as I let the lyrics sink in. Hope y'all are all having a great week so far!

~ God Bless ~

Summer so far. . .

Well my summer has been as busy as ever. With gardening, trying to finish school, spending time in the Word, endless work around the house, having people stay at our house ( throughout the whole summer ) , and don't forget about swimming, the time just flies! I have more time to blog when people don't stay at our house. So you must know I have some free time if I can blog. :) I love having people stay at our home. It makes doing everything a little more interesting. It's usually either cousins, friends, or extended family ( like my second and third cousins). .  I have a very large family :) And  some of my cousins are very good friends as well,  so that's great!
I'm glad I have my iPod for Instagram or none of my friends and family would know what I've been up to. That would just be terrible. ;)  Anyway, Today I'm just going to post pictures I took with my iPod. All of them were taken this past week. "Lots" of them. haha.  

There's a lot of swimming at our house in the summer. 

Hanging on for dear life

We went into New Orleans to visit family. . 



 I really love this girl!

 This baby, I love! 

 3 years old and knows how to work an iPhone. Is there something wrong with this picture or is it just me? ;) 

My love for cookie dough ; D haha

late nights

 Going blueberry picking

 Oh so many blueberries, and a slight sun burn.

Gonna whack um with that tube!


Stayed up late many nights watching "scary movies"  oh yea. . .

Father's day! 

 Oh Daddy! I don't know if you will ever know how much I truly love you! I couldn't have asked for a better earthy father! Love you always!!!

 Mom made Cuban food. It was delicious! She's an awesome cook!

 Emily's reaction when she tries her first plantain. priceless!

The gorgeous couple ( my handsome brother Jonathan and His beautiful wife Amelia )

We did some photo shoots! Very fun! Katey did a photo shoot of my cousin, Megan... And I did my first photo shoot. . .  of Katey! Yes you heard that right. It was so fun. Being the one behind the camera snapping those shots. She was such a great model! Gorgeous might I add. :D I thought up most of the poses and it worked so well with the lighting! She will be posting both of those photo shoots on her photography blog, soon I hope. When she posts them, you can check them out here! :)

 There Katey is, setting up the camera for her photo shoot. I don't know how to work everything just yet but that's in the learning process! :D

Emily gets a kick out of her pet llama. ;)

Love old vintage cameras!

We made some t.a.s.t.y. oreo cupcakes. . .

And had company over and had a great time!!

The sweetest thing. 


My dear little cousin Alyse 

Brandon! Love you boy! :D

And some photos of the work from the Creator of all things. . .

 Six O'clock sun rise!

I didn't realize how many photos I actually took this past week. And that was't even all of them.
