Raise the roof everyone, we got a new camera!! Get ready for a ridiculous amount of photos this next year. Mostly of Felix I'm sure. I've been wanting a new camera for quite some time, so we have been saving our nickels and dimes and we found one on sale! Score! The nice thing is that we only needed a camera body because Matt has all the sweet lenses from his old film camera. Here a few random first shots. So fun. I do have to say Molly inspired me, I think she takes such lovely photos. Molly was the talent behind the Bernhisel Sister shoot.

Bake It Pretty

Well folks, this is my current obsession at the moment. Bake it pretty...yes I will! Check out their awesome website.

I've already placed one order for some orange and white gingham baking cups and some other swirled colorful ones. Oh I'm in heaven. I also MUST have the vintage Christmas set and I think I might order some Halloween goodies. For you cupcake baking enthusiasts, this site can be dangerous. Have fun!

I Left My Heart....

In San Francisco. Oh boy do I love that city! Wish I could have spent a little more time. Okay, so this is how the story begins....

My mom and Sarah had mentioned that I should come along to San Francisco to take Sarah back to art school. I thought, well sure! But, I really didn't know I was going until the night before. Pack-pack-pack, but it couldn't be too much because all of Sarah's stuff was going to be jammed into my moms car and I would be driving a rental car packed with more stuff. What was I thinking driving 12 hours (mixed in with my mom driving) with a 18 month old? Whew, that was a long drive both ways. Thankfully we dropped the rental off and I was with my parents on the way home. The drive was worth having a few really fun days and being able to get Sarah settled in. It was fun helping her put away and organize all the kitchen stuff. You should see her itty bitty studio apartment. I thought my house was small!

With a lot of begging and pleading I FINALLY got all my sisters to get together for a little photo shoot. The Bernhisel girls have not done a photo of just us for SO many years. I found some old shots in my parents room, ya know the ones in all matching plaid or denim. Ha! I thought it would be fun to do something a little more current. Matt came up with a good idea of us all being in denim overalls but we nixed that idea. I asked everyone to wear just what ever they would be regularly wearing but a little jazzed up. I wanted us to look like ourselves, not really planned or matching. I love the results. We hired the talented Molly Jones of (Molly Jones Photography). She was so amazing. Molly suggested we head out the the Great Salt Lake for our shoot. We all loved the idea! She knew all the good spots and I really think she captured the essence of all of us. Can't wait to get some of these images framed. I think my Dad is going to love these...

These are some funny random pictures that I stole from Sarah's Facebook page!

A sweet little picture we took so Ben could hang his Aunties in his locker at Hillside! Somehow I really need to sneak it into school...

Heber hooping!

Henry and Heber found a stray set of glasses and decided to be "nerds". I would have to say they look very nerdy indeed!
