It's a...


I'm am more than excited to say that the very first boy of the Woodruff family will arrive in July!

God is so good, y'all.

My oldest sister found out she was pregnant right around the holidays and I have been dying for the gender reveal day! We had a small little get together at my house where we had cupcakes, coffee, tea, wine, and little snacks. The most fun part was that the inside of the cupcakes had the filling of either pink (a girl) or blue (a boy). It wasn't 30 minutes into the party and we couldn't wait any longer to find out what they were expecting! My heart leaped with joy when I saw the color blue!

Babies are so much fun. I can't wait for a house full of them myself!

Happy New Year (since it's been awhile) and Happy Blogging!

Selfie Sunday: Monogram Addict

This weekend called for cozy, lazy days.
My husband and I laid around, laughed at the crazy folks buying bread and milk for the weekend, drank hot chocolate, and watched season one of Downton Abbey (which now makes me wish I were British).

After church this morning, I had a photo shoot in this chilly weather. I threw on a warm head band and one of my new favorite sweat shirts that I had monogrammed by a friend of mine....check it out!

Guys...I am officially on the monogram train. I want everything I own to be monogrammed! Yes....everything.

Hope everyone had a warm and safe weekend!

Happy Blogging and Happy Holidays!

Christmas Wish List

I have seriously been starting my Christmas list since the beginning of this year. Anytime I see something I want (but can't afford to buy at the moment) I jot it down on my wish list.

Here are my top 5 wishes for Christmas...

1. New running shoes: Mizuno Wave Rider 16
2. Canon EOS 5D Mark II
3. Kendra Scott Emerald Earrings
4. Gold name necklace
5. Aviator Ray Ban's (because the ocean decided to take mine from me)

What's on your wish list? Send your ideas my way so I can add to mine!

Happy Blogging and Happy Holidays!

The Open Window Boutique

Last week I had an amazing photo shoot with a local boutique. The models, the clothes, and the setting made this shoot PERFECT. Check out The Open Boutique on Facebook and try not to drool over these adorable clothes:

L's Weight Loss Update

Okay y'all. It was my birthday on Saturday. So you know that I acted like calories don't count. Because nobody should be on a diet on their birthday. Le duh.

Needless to say, I was kinda dreading stepping on the scale this morning. And by kinda dreading, I mean that I covered my eyes as I was stepping on the scale. No lie.

Anyways, I ended up LOSING 1.2 lbs! WOOHOOOOOOO! So that puts me at 1_1.6 lbs!

Yup. This girl is doing the happy dance.

And you know what I'm going to do to celebrate?

Eat some light greek yogurt. Womp womp.

The most daunting post. Of my life. Ever.

Okay folks.

The scale has gotten out of control. Like, it's not good. My clothes aren't fitting me as well. And with the holidays coming up, I need to do some serious damage control. I joined a gym. I run on occasion. And I started weight watchers. So this is for real. Y'all are going to be my accountability. Like we're talking real accountability... If you're a personal friend of mine, text me and make sure I'm on track. Or to all of you bloggy friends- email me and tell me to get my booty to the gym that day. I'm thinking about creating an Instagram account for meals. Haven't decided on that one yet.

As of this morning, I weighed 1_2.8 lbs (Muahahaha see what I did there? I'm totally leaving the middle number blank. And I will for a while). Mondays will be my weekly weigh in. And until I like the middle number more, it will be left blank.

It's a bit daunting- knowing that technically anybody in the world could be holding me accountable to this. I'm actually forced to be successful now that I put it out there.

I'm flipping out, y'all. Wish me luck!

Life of a Photog

Many of you might not know this about me, but as a hobby I love to take pictures.
Capturing those sweet moments in life are priceless to me.

I'm in the process of redesigning my Facebook photography page (Amanda Woodruff Photography) and made a couple of banners for the Fall/Christmas.

Tell me what ya think....

I started photography years ago, but never really got serious about it till recently. After I got married I tried changing my photography name, but since I had so many 'likes' I am stuck with my maiden name. (Honestly I love it. Very sentimental to me.)

I'll be posting different photo sessions here and there through out the year. Eventually I'll get an extremely nice camera worth thousands, but for now I'll just deal with what I have!

Happy Blogging!
