The Million Dollar Dance

If there was an award for best marketing idea, that took a little bit of computer skills (ok, probably a lot), and a simple idea but yet brought in millions of $$, Office Max in partner with Jib Jab takes the cake. We saw the below video of us and were suckered in to paying the $4.99 to get this video. It's only because we wanted to share it with you!

So to preface, you may think that the below couple - Lee & Elisabeth look all cool and nice and sweet, but in reality, they are up to crazy schemes and secretly have the best dance moves out there and have taught us some tricks as well...



This is a little something they made and sent on over to us...

Hope that brought some laughs...!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!

Photo Shoot of Some Yummy Nashville Cakes!

We had the pleasure this week of taking some time out and shooting some awesome and delicious looking cakes by one of the best wedding cake makers in Nashville - Shara Lunn. For those addicted blog readers, Shara is the one who made our cute cupcakes for our studio warming party!



And here are some of her cakes...









Shown are only 2 cakes - just wait until you see the others!!! They are so cool and you'll have to wait to see them until the great revealing at the Nashville Bridal Show on January 3rd!

Not only is Shara really creative and strives for excellence in what she does, but she is a sweet and caring person as well. Take a moment and check out her other designs at CakesByShara.net. Too bad you can't taste them through the screen!

The Ending to A Birthday Weekend

The polls have officially closed! Thanks to all who voted!

Zach turned (drum roll please)......



Thanks to those who made Zach feel great and said you thought he was turning under 30, and no thanks to those who made him cry by saying you thought he was turning 32. Shame! ;o) Doesn't he look great for 30??

Some gifts from friends Jeff & Ashley
who know that Zach loves cold cappuccinos with whip cream and cinnamon!


A hilarious card from our dear friends and newlyweds Lee & Elisabeth Cunningham!! Thanks you two - Zach LOVED the Starbucks! :)






Thanks to those who came out and made Zach's birthday even more special.

Enjoy your week and don't forget the reason why we celebrate CHRISTmas!

Stay Tuned at Noon Today

Once polling closes at noon (Central) today, Zach age will be revealed!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!!!!!!! A Big Birthday Surprise for my Sweetie!

It is Zach's birthday today!!!!!!!!



My studly husband is another year old and another year wiser. (I know, isn't he so cute??).



So something I (Jody) was about to explode with is Zach's mom and I conspired together almost 8 months ago to have all of Zach's 5 siblings, an aunt, AND his dad and his wife fly in to surprise Zach on his birthday!! They all flew in together from 4 different states (California, Wisconsin, North Dakota and Minnesota) and the plan worked beautifully!! Zach thought only his mom was coming in so when we brought her back to our place from the airport this morning Zach was giving her the tour and the rest of the fam was waiting to surprise him!! It was SO funny! He kind of stood there for a moment stunned processing that the people he was seeing were his family and they were actually standing in our home. Ha ha!!! I took a lovely little video of it... he he he...

video

Yay family and yay surprises!

A few more photos of the studly Zach... he he he




What I love About My Husband:

His humor

His talent
His cool hair = :o)

His compassion

His drive to be better man, husband & photographer
His heart to help others be better

Happy Birthday, Pook! I'm so proud of who you are and who you have become. I'm so glad I'm blessed to be your wife and get to grow old with you! I love you :)






(us at our 1 year dating anniversary)

If you have not noticed, we have a poll going of how old/young you think Zach is. Voting ends Monday when Zach's age will be revealed :o)

Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!!

Well, friends, today was a great day - A Franklin shoot, something that begins with "s" and a special weekend ahead!!

A Franklin Shoot: We had a shoot today done of US by the great Keoni K! It was raining most of the day, but we grinned and stuck it out and still managed to look cool... hopefully - ha! Our makeup was done by the amazing Amy Lynn Larwig who just returned back to Nashville from furthering her makeup studies (I know there is a more professional word for it than that...) in Vancouver! Stay tuned for some photos that we will post once we receive some of the final images!


Something that begins with "S": The other big and exciting thing that happened today was that it SNOWED!!!!!!! Yes!! Right here in Franklin, TN!! Good thing we were able to capture it!!!

A Special Weekend: And the final thing to announce iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis -
My awesome husband's birthday is this Saturday!!! I'm not going to spill how old he will be turning... For those who are reading this off a feed, I have placed a poll at the top of our blog and you now can vote on his age. Another cool thing about this weekend is Zach's mom is coming to visit and celebrate with us! She is flying all the way in from North Dakota (and we blame her for the snow... last time it snowed like this in Nashville she was with us!!).

Enjoy the snow while we have it, folks!

An Addition to our Southern Christmas Tree Blog!

We forgot to mention - while you are in the Christmas spirit reading our tree adventures blog below, we thought we would take a moment and share an interesting fact about our friends Mike & Kelly (who appeared in our blog below) as well as suggest a great Christmas present for your family & friends (ah, yeah!).

Mike is in the signed band Tenth Avenue North, and their album "Over and Underneath" is amazing. If you're a radio listener you have more than likely heard their songs - both singles released to radio have hit #1 on the AC radio charts!! If you're wondering what to buy your friends for Christmas - this is the gift! It'll touch their lives.



To watch their music video and see Mike NOT acting like a hillbilly see below... :o)



Check out their album HERE!

Oh Southern Christmas Tree, Oh Southern Christmas Tree...

Yesterday we made the hike all the way to Shelbyville and got us a Christmas tree!!! We cut it down ourselves and everything!!

We went with some friends of ours - Mike & Kelly (who are sharing their first Christmas together as newlyweds.... aww) and Kelly's brother and our friend Chris (by the way, he's a rockin' hair stylist so if you need a great haircut we have the man to send you to!).











Look at Zach being manly and cutting our little, cute tree!


Success!




Kelly & Mike with their first tree!


Chris and his.... unique tree...


Zach doing his Christmas tree dance (look! A photo with both of us in it! Mike D was the man behind our camera on this one...)


Chris striking up a conversation with the creepy elf...


Taking the trees home...





We actually have some live footage of this experience to share with you. You get to hear my awesome laughter and everything... This is the first time we're uploading videos - enjoy!

Ah... hope you all enjoy your own Christmas tree experiences this year!!
