There's nothing better...

There’s nothing better than taking off, and getting away for a while. Especially when one of your great friends is involved! This weekend I trekked across the border to Vida, Montana, where my buddy from high school lives.

I packed up my mom’s big spiffy camera, my new leather goodies, and hit the pavement. I’m so lucky to have friends that are supportive of my new little business and that are willing to help me. Did I mention they are also all very modelesque? I couldn’t ask for a more perfect combination! My friend B agreed to help out with my photo-shoot for my next ad in COWGIRL magazine. The ads I get to create are even more special when they have the people I am close to in them!

Plus it’s so much easier doing a shoot with someone I know. We all know how awkward I am! But the shoot turned out great, and the pictures are amazing! I really will have a hard time choosing. Here are a couple example of ones that might show up in my ad…

Of course this weekend wasn’t just about taking photos…we needed some girl time too! We got to talking about my upcoming wedding and how I am NOT EVEN CLOSE to being domestic. Cooking is out of the question for me when I have a sister that went to culinary school and who cooks scrumptious meals every night! But eventually that will catch up with me, so B decided I needed a few lessons.

I was taught how to cook a delicious pork loin, how to make the best cheesy potatoes, and I even got to wear one of her magical aprons. You know how I love aprons…

Overall it was a much needed mini vacation. She even sent me home with one of her cook books! Pioneer Woman to be exact…I need to start studying!

What have I been doing lately? I don't know either.

Okay, this is getting ridiculous. I need to get a handle on things before it becomes December. I cannot believe that it’s the middle of stinking August. The summer is almost over! I haven’t even been to the lake yet! I haven’t had a picnic, went camping, or rode horse. WOW I need to get it together! Pretty soon I’ll be complaining that I didn’t get to sled, throw a snowball, or give my little brother a whitewash. I think I need to slow down and smell those proverbial roses everyone keeps talking about.

I’ve got so many things going on that I’m about ready to burst at the seams. There are so many ideas bouncing around inside my skull that I have to write them all down so I don’t forget them a couple minutes later. It happens. Like right now. What was the point I am trying to make? Oh yeah….roses….right.

It always seems like I’m writing about slowing down, and enjoying life. Obviously this is something I need to do more often. My subconscious is trying to tell me something. More like blatantly scream it at me every day! Helllllloooo this is a sign.

Well I think I’ve come to the conclusion that the only way for me to do this is to travel. Sometimes you just have to go, you know? Usually my only troubles are trying to convince someone to go with me, but I’m usually quite persuasive. Spontaneity is my specialty when it comes to traveling.

I convinced my sister to go to Medora yesterday. Even though we both had to get up in the morning for work the next day (her earlier than I). It turned out to be the most beautiful day, great temperature and even a little breeze! There’s never a breeze when we go to Medora! It was meant to be!!! Of course Medora is the greatest place for my new obsession…INSTAGRAM! So many filters! So many options! So magical!

Here are a couple pics from our trip. We also got to eat the Steak Fondue and go to the musical. It was a great show and I’m so glad we went, even though I can barely type this from fatigue and she is probably asleep on her desk and drooling on her sticky notes as I write this. BUT WE’RE ENJOYING LIFE RIGHT? Yeeehhaaaww!
