{Photo Life Update}

Most weeks in my life are crazy busy. Running here, going there, adding more to my list, it never seems to end! Although most of it is my own doing, so I really can’t complain…

Here’s a catch up with some happenings and photos from my life in the past few weeks.

A few weeks ago I attended a Social Media Club of Des Moines event at Cache Bake Shoppe where I learned how to be official in decorating my cupcakes. This was the real deal! Can’t believe I didn’t know how to do this before.

It was a lovely girl’s night out with my bestie, Ashley!

The finished products. I thought they looked pretty snazzy for it being my first time!IMG_4596

The best part is that we donated our cupcakes to the children staying at the Ronald McDonald House. What a great idea!


Two weeks ago we were supposed to get a mega snowstorm, which never materialized. That same day we were supposed to have class for Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute, so our marketing committee planned to meet before class. One of our committee members is a Sergeant at the West Des Moines Police Department, so when class was cancelled we decided to take a little tour of the police department…including the firing range!IMG_4612IMG_4613IMG_4615

This tour reaffirmed my commitment to never be arrested. Seriously.

On February 22 I celebrated one year at my job! It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already, and I am so grateful for all of the professional opportunities and the wonderful team I get to work with each day. Happy workiversary to me!

Last week Friday I finally met baby Braxton, the son of my good friends Quentin and Ashley. He is so adorable and precious! I brought them dinner and enjoyed the night cuddling with the little guy.


I had to share this beautiful photo that I took in the East Village downtown Des Moines. Reminded me of God’s simple beauty in our world.IMG_4611

Well there’s my photo update to share the little life happenings that I haven’t had a chance to post in the past few weeks!

Enjoy your Saturday!
