Mitchell Family Holiday Photos 2017

November 1, 2017 No Comments

Photo shoots are HARD when you have a four year old and a nineteen month old. With Porter, we were dealing with smile refusals and attitude problems. With Preston, we were dealing with just general crazy behavior that mostly included running away when we put him somewhere to stand or sit or even heaven forbid we hold him and he isn’t diving head first to the ground. I tried bribing with food, but it was ineffective.
Somehow our photographer managed to capture some moments that made it look like we have our *ish* together, so thanks for that Jacki Raney. Hopefully we can fool everyone that’s on our Christmas card list. And thank the Heavens above for Amazon Prime’s free two day shipping for giving me something to wear. My outfit is linked below and I really think every girl should buy these shoes.
Sam Edelman Leopard heels (on sale for $119 from $140 – kind of a splurge for me, but I’ve been obsessed with these forever and plan on wearing the heck out of them)
Plaid Shirt (only $15 with a looser boyfriend-ish fit)
Tulle Skirt (Under $30 and comes in every color you could ever want)

    • Had the best Sunday celebrating the birthday twins ๐Ÿ‘ฏ ๐ŸŽ‚ Today @ktrec and tomorrow, @laurenerickson1027. Iโ€™m sure glad these two babes were born 34 years ago...these girls are my sunshine on a cloudy day โค๏ธ โ›…๏ธ swipe for some major throwbacks โžก๏ธ
    • Fridays are for flashbacks, so here I am 26 years young after I had just said my vows to the love of my life @ryancurtismitchell. My bouquet was so heavy, my forearms were sore for days afterwards ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚
    • โ€œThe days are long but the years are shortโ€
๐Ÿ’ซ
Today Iโ€™ve been reflecting a little bit on time as we approach the year 2019; just one year shy of the year 2020, which kind of boggles my mind when I sit and really think about it. ๐Ÿ’ซ
How has it really been that long? I had Porter in 2013 when I was 28 years old and in so many ways it feels like yesterday. How am I in my mid thirties already? How was college graduation literally 11.5 years ago? How is it that Ryan and I have been together for 10 years and married for 6? ๐Ÿ’ซ
My 92 year old grandmother often tells me she doesnโ€™t feel 92 and Iโ€™m really starting to understand. I guess all we can do in this life is appreciate every moment because in a blink of an eye, we will wonder how that said moment was so long ago. ๐Ÿ’ซ
This also makes me think about how life is too short to spend time with negative people or drink bad wine. And also I need to get some Botox. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿท๐Ÿ’‰
    • I graduated from high school in 2003, so I vividly remember the days of film/photo albums. As digital cameras and social media took over, printing photos became kind of a rare thing for me to do. Iโ€™ve had so many scares where I think digital photos have been lost forever and I personally know people who have tragically lost precious baby/wedding photos ๐Ÿ˜ญ. So when I got the opportunity to partner up with @google using Google Photos, I was intrigued! On my phone and within literally FIVE minutes, I was able to create this album of our trip to Maui from over the summer. It was the easiest thing ever using the Google Photos app, cost about $20, and they have free standard shipping until 12/12! This album has already been a coffee table conversation piece and my kids have been fondly reminiscing our trip ๐Ÿ˜. My new normal is definitely to have Google Photo albums! These are also awesome Christmas gifts ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿคฉ#googlephotos #photobooks #googlepartner

    • Yesterday we had our first parent-teacher conference for TK and it turned out to be much more thorough than I would have imagined. It was so amazing to hear feedback from his teacher about this boy weโ€™ve been trying to mold & raise for the past 5 years. So many things said about him that made me just beam with pride, but the most profound praise was that he exhibits an unusual sense of empathy and compassion for others. If there was any one trait in this world I could hope for my kids to have, it would be thatโค๏ธ #portercurtis
    • Porter: I wish it was Saturday.
.
Me: Why?
.
Porter: So I can be here and do hugs with you all day.
.
Porter said this to me as I was hugging him. He went from driving me crazy (arguing with basically everything I say all day, urrrday) to making me cry with his sweet words. Hello emotional roller coaster ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜โค๏ธ
