Fun Stuff on Friday

Happily I woke up this morning to see that I had gained a few followers since yesterday... and reached my goal of 200 followers!  {204, at last count!}
I am soooo excited!

As promised back at the beginning of September, with the help of Petite Delights, I will be hosting a giveaway as a thank you to my faithful readers... and all my new ones too!
I'm going to do something a little different this time... I wan you all to have as many chances as possible to win... Iloniti's 'shabby, chic, romantic & vintage' jewelry is sooooo worth it!  
Keep your eyes peeled, I will be announcing the giveaway really soon!



Also, yesterday I received my first ever Ruche order!
This beautiful maxi dress, which I'm hoping to wear to an October wedding...
How should I style it!?









I'm also just a few pages from finally finishing The Help.
I must say that I've really enjoyed the book, and it's definitely a new favorite... but I sort of wish I would have read it BEFORE all the "hype."  I think, maybe, I was expecting more...
I must say the characters are truly unbelievable & awesome!
I'm looking forward to the movie, and passing this book along to my friends & family.
Definitely a beautiful read!





But, now that I'm done this book... I need help decided which one I should start next!
Here are my most recent purchases... has anyone read either of these?

Other fun news, is that I've been asked by TWO friends if I'd be interested in taking family photos for them!
This is also a big deal for me because I'm trying to practice my photography... and I've been slacking lately.  Not good since I have to photography my cousin's wedding a few weeks... maybe I'll head outside this weekend and do a photo shoot of the kids or something...
What are some of your favorite family photos?
I've been browsing Pinterest, of course... and have come across some great "shots" I'd like to try for their family portraits...

 {note to self - invest in a big, cool picture fame!}













I've also signed up for a basic & introductory photography class... just waiting for the class to fill up... I hope it happens so, I'm anxious to learn this stuff!!

Most of the pics above can be found on my Pinterest boards...if you haven't received an invite for Pinterest yet, let me know!  I'll send an invitation your way... pronto!
And just a reminder that you can find me on Facebook & Twitter too!

Happy Friday!  TGIF, right!?

  2. Good for you Lena, signing up for a photography course! You are already such a talented photographer, no doubt you will only get even better. Do you do family pictures?

    I haven't read The Help yet, but can't wait to see what all the fuss is about. I hear it's a great book and movie.

    Have a great weekend!
