The Cream in my Coffee

My honey and I got engaged in November after having been together for almost NINE YEARS! High school sweethearts! I wanted our engagement photos to be fun and unique.

Anyone who knows me, knows there is only one thing I love almost as much as I love Jason and that is COFFEEEE! My life’s motto is “Caffeination is motivation” and yes, you can hashtag that ;).

Well my loving fiancé went along with my theme of love and caffeine and we did our engagement shoot outdoors to incorporate his long for sunshine and scenery. Its styled perfectly to suit us both.

I realized after talking to a friend yesterday, that I never really posted them online or shared them in anyway. I think its time don’t you?!

Let me know your thoughts? Love the coffee theme? Too  caffeinated for your taste? Feel free to like/share/repost! Pin that ish!! ❤

See you next time,
miss em!

Monster Birthday Bash!!

Last month I had the incredible honor of attending the first birthday party for the son of my best friend and fellow blogger Christina (From The (Mostly True) Story of Life as a Mommy)!
This girl did an amazing job! The Monster Bash themed birthday was decked out from floor to ceiling. I was so ecstatic when she asked if I’d take pictures. This party was so cool I just had to share it with all of you!!
Kevin says HI!!!
She did an amazing job with everything, you could hardly recognize the clubhouse!
The green box was a time capsule! Such a cool idea. Guests were asked to bring items from today to fill the capsule for Kevin to open on his 18th birthday. I helped her with the insert for the invitation set and its now for sale on my etsy store!
Time Capsule Insert
Matching Invitations!
This crazily creative mama even made these amazing cakes herself from scratch!! Check out the fur on the Sully one!
Kevin thought it was delish!!
I just had to get a picture with this little cutie man. I consider Kev a nephew since Christina is basically my sister. I was so happy she let me play Auntie Em and smother him with love that day!!
Here he is with Gramma and Grampa. I love this one because it looks like he’s explaining everything about this whole cake thing to them. Just look at his cute little face. So funny I can’t stand it!!
I love how confused he is. You want me to EAT that?!
He’s such a happy baby i love it!
Christina had an amazing high chair set up with a cool backdrop for him to eat his first birthday cake in total style! I love everything she did!
This was one happy kid on his birthday! Christina did a kick ass job! How she manages to be an amazing full time student, work, and be an amazing full time mom is beyond me.
So glad I got to share this with you all. I though the photos turned out great, pretty proud of them. I think she probably thinks I forgot about uploading the photos since its been like a month, but, you know, life and things kept creeping up. Better late than never right?
Until next time friends!
