Trip to San Antonio

So, I think my funny bone has lapsed, hopefully only momentarily, but I can't think of an interesting title for our weekend rendezvous to save my life. Maybe it's part from the rough, none stop day at work yesterday, or lack of sleep or a combination of the two.  What do you think about these titles: "Fun-awesome-trip-where-I-couldn't-pee-for-the-first-two-hours-of-the-drive" or "San-Antonio-equals-best-city-ever" or (my favorite), "Best-trip-ever-where-I-became-an-official-SLR-camera-owner"

That's right, friends, Brandon and I are now part of the SLR family. And I'm in love. The beep of the focus. The click of the shutter. It's all music to my ears. And what makes me even happier, Brandon actually likes taking pictures with this camera. And that means more pictures for your pretty eyes. Lucky you.

Well, I won't bore you any longer. Here are a few pictures from our weekend. We went downtown for an award's banquet to celebrate my mom's scholarship award. So proud that she's going back to school!

Dress & Shoes: Kohl's, Clutch: gifted 










Please excuse my lack of fashion and poise while we get down and dirty with the puppy dogs. They drool and slobber in real life, and they like to play in the water and proceed to get you soaking wet.






Brandon's all about nature shots and upgrading to bigger lenses. I think I got him hooked. He'll be wanting to shoot for National Geographic if I don't keep an eye on him ;)


We traveled back into town to shop, got some ice cream, spent some together with my parents and had a great dinner before we needed to get back on the road.

Love weekends like these.

  5. I almost just giggled out loud. First of all, I am so excited that you got an SLR! Second... the fact that your husband loves taking pics makes me smile. I'll be looking for his photo credit in National Geographic! (:

    The dog action shots are so fun! Nothing like some bonding with furry friends and playing some frisbee with them. So cute! Golden retrievers are my favorite dog in the whole wide world... and you and Michaela are killing me with these adorable pictures of them. <3

    You and your husband look great... and that pic of him looking out the window at the skyline is so cool! Way to go. Can't wait to see more pictures by Alisha and Brandon. (: Yeeeah!

  20. Oh my gosh I want one of those cameras so bad! And love the pictures- it is great to see pictures of San Antonio because my sister lived there for a month this year and I didn't get to see what it was like!

    And definitely check out that book- it is by the author of the Twilight series, but it is meant for adults. Haha.
