Engagement Photos Level: Awkward

I really do just love the awkward uncomfortable feeling that just makes you burst into laughter. In my hunt to find the cutest poses for engagements photos.  I’ve came across a plethora of photos that LOLing was an understatement. Here are my top 10 faves I found!

♥ Enjoy:

Work Fam.

WARNING: SAPPY POST BELOW.

ok you’ve been warned. As I mentioned yesterday I just recently switched positions…I went from a Health and Human Services job to a position in the auditors office. Full outside world contact to none. Which isn’t too bad. But what I really learned was how blessed I was to have the women by my side that I did. How close we truely are and how much I’m having withdrawals for not seeing them everyday! But the even better thing is knowing that these are strong bonds that will carry on even though I don’t get to see them everyday.

Traditions denied by adulting. 🙅🏼

At this very time – every year since I was born – I would be sitting shotgun in my Dad’s or my Papa’s motorhome working the CB radio on the way to Dumont Dunes. *If you do not know what a CB radio is you are too young!!!* My family was part of the Dune Masters, a dune buggy club that went out together and had the time of our lives. Since my Papa passed my family has not kept up this tradition. And let me tell you I want more than anything to get it started again, raising my children doing it and experiencing all that I have grown and loved.

But you know growing up, bills, work, all that adulting CRAP really puts a halt to these traditions you experienced as a kid. Its not like my entire childhood where I had the whole next week off and a family to fund this VERY  expensive get-a-way. I keep telling myself, “Next year! We are doing it!” But it never quite works out that way.

Its not just the camping and riding about going to the dunes. It was/IS the Dune Masters. The camaraderie of everyone out there. The traditions out there; Bingo night, the raffle, the all day mens ride, ALL of us eating Thanksgiving dinner TOGETHER, the campfires, going to the canyon at night to shoot bottle rockets at each other, THE PEOPLE. 

I’ve always promised myself I was going to become the first “girl” Dune Master to get in with her Papa’s buggy. Im going to do it. I’M GOING TO DO IT NEXT YEAR. I have decided. It’s going to happen.

Have fun out there Dune Masters! I’ll be thinking of you! Wishing I was out there!

Guardian Angel.

Well this one may be a sappy post…I shall try and keep it as light hearted as possible. However the other day I touched on My Papa. I haven’t explained that relationship to you guys yet and I feel I should. My papa (Grandpa) was seriously the coolest man! And when I was a young child we did everything together! He took me to so many new places and taught me so many things I will never forget. Some of which are extremely inappropriate sayings..that now being an adult I fully comprehend! We shared so many interests…the love for the sand dunes…his dune buggy (that I so luckily have now)…music…tv…food. He used to help me with my math homework…I would work it out and he would use his calculator and double check my work. I would sit on his lap in his chair (which I also have his chair in my living room) and we would share a pear watching some cool show on tv. He passed when I was 12. And let me tell you I felt so much older when it happened and so badly wish he could see me today. But I know he is watching over me. There will be times where I’m having a shitty day…I’ll put my music on shuffle and the first song that comes on is one him and I used to sing along to. I’ll sit there and simply say “Thank you, Papa.” I know he sees me and that makes me smile.

 

Love you and miss you everyday Papa!

Before Marriage VS. After Marriage

So there all these funny memes and what it expressing all the differences of before and after marriage. And if that’s true I’m already married. I haven’t come across too many that isn’t already the case. So we can be on the same insurance…save some money that way. But to be honest there isn’t much I don’t know about him and vice a verse. I mean we have ONE bathroom. One! Which means when I’m rushing to get ready and leave the house and he happens to have to use the restroom at the same exact freaking time…we’re in there together. WE. ARE. CLOSE. Maybe even too close. But shoot…he still put a ring on it…and we face that situation many a time prior to being engaged. I mean he has seen my at my worst…no make up, frizzy nappy hair, crabby as heck, and stuffing my face full of food AND he still wants to marry me! I guess it’s mutual…that’s love no matter what. But I am still searching for some other difference I may experience. Commitment of course I know that…like full blown legal commitment.

But let me tell you we are everything in the after column!

Tale as Old as Time.

I. Love. Beauty and the Beast. Always have always will. Every girl has there go to Disney movie and this was mine. I can not tell you the countless times that I was Belle for Halloween. Like 5… Cause I’m obsessive like that. This was my first love story that I fell in love with. I probably watched this on the daily…ask my mom she will vouche for me! There were certain scenes I could not watch…well only one…the west wing. I would yell for my mommy…”she is going in the west wing!” My mother would have to come and fast forward…vhs style…(yes I’m old…hence Quarter Life Crisis here) and then I would be a ok.

The ironic thing out of all of this was that I oddly had a crush on Gaston….always was a sucker for muscles 💪🏽. Arnold Schwarzenegger was my first real human crush. But you know the bad boy strong man type.

But out of all my Beauty and the Beast memories THIS is my favorite…My Papa and I on, yes a Halloweenwhere I was Belle

Make-Up

And…Ill do it myself!💯✔️

So I love make up. I love doing it and looking at all the new styles and tricks. Because of my love to sleep in I don’t always spend the time I wish I could in the morning on my make up. I’m so particular about my make up that I’m most likely going to do my own make up for my wedding. The best compliment I received recently was when I went to get my make up done right before my engagement photos. My man was waiting me for me to be done so we could go finish getting ready. I was sitting there critiquing and knowing EXACTLY what I was going to change and fix when I got home. As we were walking away I casually asked….well do you like it? (I always have ulterior motives to every question I ask…I’m woman..what do you expect!) Anyways he looked at me and said…”well I like it better when you do it…you like pretty but you do your make up better.” DING DING DING!!! Point for you sir! (Reason 638392736488 I am marrying him). So yes I’ll be purchasing the BEST waterproof everything (I’ll be crying like a baby) to do my own make up on my wedding day.

Any suggestions or products I should try; leave them right here in the comments! Gracias!!!!
