Modeling Monday!


First we were re-modeling.

And now we are ... modeling!?

You know...just a day in the life of a Nelson! :) I kid, I kid.

It's little late in the day to be posting I suppose, but y'all...this day has FLOWN by. My to-do list is rude I tell ya. Just raaaude.

This past weekend? A whirlwind!

I met Drew and my friend Jenni at my house on Friday and we then headed to the storage units to start getting all of our "garage sale" items. We didn't realize until we started sorting how much of it we were actually selling. We ended up moving out of one storage unit completely and hauled it back to our house. On the bright side, we are half way done moving y'all! What! What! But seriously. Never in my life have I seen SO much ... just...STUFF! I really think we would have been able to be on that show Hoarders! We stayed up until about 3 am on Friday, were up at 6 am, and had ourselves a garage sale of the century! Drew was dreading this, naturally, BUT at the end of it, he was a tired, but happy boy. We sold EVERYTHING. Not ONE thing was left, except for a sweater but I ended up just giving it to the last person who stopped by. It was super successful and as Tom Cruise and Cuba Gooding Jr. said in Jerry Maguire...SHOW ME THE MONEYYYY! So naturally, Drew and I treated ourselves to Casa Ole afterwards followed by a nap. #highrollers

On Saturday evening, we went to my friend Brent's house where we celebrated my sweet friend Kristina's superrr later birthday. We had so much fun and I was so glad I got to attend! It seems that all I do these days is say, "Sorry! I can't...I have _________." I'm so glad that I've made myself really take weekends OFF from work (if I don't have a shoot or wedding). It let's me not feel burnt out, and I am able to not feel the stress/burden/guilt that I used to have. Anyway, that's a different post for another day! :)

AND Sunday looked like this...

Drew and I were asked by my friend Mylah a few weeks ago if we'd be down to be ... models ... for a styled shoot she was planning. At first, I was like, "Say whatttt!? Us? Models!?" However, we really haven't had our photos taken since our wedding (4 years ago) and it sounded like so much fun! We agreed, we went, got our hair did, and Drew ROCKED those HOT PANTS of his! :)

Here is a preview on facebook this morning that she posted...

 It was THE COOLEST experience, ever. The deer were so friendly, and LOVED me, (can you blame em!? haha totally kidding!), andddd I got to make-out with my man for a couple of hours. I'd say it was a gooooood day! :)

Also, can I just be honest and tell y'all that being behind the camera was super weird for me!? Haha! I felt really nervous, and vulnerable and thought to myself...

"So THISSSS is what my clients feel like!?"


Mylah did an absolutely AMAZING job, and we had such a great time! You can check our her photography page here! :) I'll be sure to post more when she puts them up in the next couple of weeks! :)

What kind of things did you get into this weekend?

I'll be back tomorrow with my Monthly Goals and a pretty baller playlist. Get excited! ;)

P.s.) Is Drew not a freaking sizzle fest in those photos!?!? THOSE suspenders and pink bow tie???? I could gobble that boy UP ch'yall! (saidinthehoneybooboovoice) ;)
