Engagement Photo Shoot Sneak Peek + Rainy Weekend Fun

September 29th, 2014 | Posted by Erica House in Life

With an 80% chance of rain on the agenda for both Saturday and Sunday I knew we would be spending the majority of the weekend inside. I asked Travis to bring down his PS3 so I could relive my college days of playing Elder Scrolls for 10 hours a day. I have such an obsessive personality that once I start playing a game I pretty much can’t function in any other part of my life until I finish it. Hence why I don’t have any gaming systems in my house.

I woke up Saturday morning and decided to skip my run to play PS3 in bed. I made up for it later with one of my favorite strength workouts. I’ve been woefully neglecting my strength training so I was ridiculously sore Sunday. It felt good!2Saturday afternoon my latest Amazon shipment came and I received two Halloween DVD’s I’ve been anxiously awaiting. I’m not going to subject Travis to watching Halloweentown so that’s going to be my Sunday night treat. 
4That night I pulled out one of Mom’s old recipes for classic Macaroni and Cheese. Growing up this was always one of my favorite meals, and it’s the one I usually request she make if I head over to their house for dinner. It’s so basic, but there’s just something so comforting about it! Travis and I both liked it which is rare, and I’m excited to have a new recipe to add to our rotation.1Sunday morning I had my alarm set for 5:30 with every intention of going for an 8-10 mile run.
Andddd that didn’t happen. It was dreary out (and did start raining around 7 a.m.) so I slept in and had some extra time to get ready for our photo shoot! I’m so grateful to the amazingly talented Noel Nichols for doing this for us. I’m already so anxious to see the final photos! It was fun having Travis explain to me what all the different things on this uniform meant. It was the first time I saw him in his dress uniform and I am definitely a fan. 3The first half of the photos we took at the Naval Aviation Museum. It seemed like such a perfect location for us and it was so much fun to take photos in their recreated 1940’s town.
6After the museum we headed over to the lighthouse to take some photos outside. We had to do a quick change in the car to outfit #2 and Travis practiced his ‘blue steel’ look.5Taking photos for 2 hours and trying not to look like total idiots is exhausting. As soon as we were done we headed over to Tijuana Flats. Travis hadn’t been but he was a quick convert after having a taste of the worlds best queso.
7The rest of the rainy day was spent inside playing video games, watching tv, and pretending that Monday morning wasn’t quickly approaching.

How was your weekend?

What was your favorite childhood meal? When’s the last time you had it?
