In which we learn that Saturday is our favorite day & you can't be good at everything.

Today was a good, good Saturday. 

For all the talk of baby-wishing that goes on around here, I'd just like to take this moment to say that I was very, very ok being without child today. 

We slept in this morning nice and late, getting out of bed just in time for lunch. Reheated pizza, please- which, might I add is perfect when warmed in the toaster. Then we picked out coordinating casual and fancy outfits. You may be shocked to know that today, our matching outfit selection actually had a valid purpose behind it. Lissa Clair offered to take pics of us! So we headed downtown, met cute Lissa, and had ourselves a little Sam & Chas photo shoot. Lissa soon had the privilege of becoming officially acquainted with Chas' killer smolder.

Exhibit A:

Towards the end, Lissa asked me, "So can you do a smolder like Chas for the next picture, Sam?" I think we all found out the answer to that question very quickly. 


...Back to our day.

After the photo shoot, we had to make the very difficult decision of whether to eat dinner at Hire's or Zupas. These are the burning questions of our lives, my friends. (We chose Zupas, btw.)

Then we came home, got some good couch snugging in, and tried to work on writing our talks for church tomorrow. For the record, mine is finished. That might have something to do with the fact that Chas let me write mine on the computer while he got stuck with slow-goin paper and pen. 

That Charles. He's always thinking of me. 
Night night.

Nice to meet you, Sam. I think we probably are kindred artists.
I first saw Amanda B's art in Seaside, Oregon and I was a goner. She's amazing.
Your blog is adorable and your work is awesome.

Your so cute- love the smolder!

This post is especially funny because we went to Hires for dinner right after the photo shoot. I guess we think alike, even though y'all chose Zupa's which, by the way, is one of our other faves!

Pretty sure my husband is allergic the cameras. He won't ever let me take his picture unless he is holding a dead animal (fish, deer, fox, coyote... you get the idea). So I totally envy Chas's camera smolder.
