Five Things for Friday
1. It is really starting to feel like spring here in California! We are having the most beautiful 70 degree and sunny weather. Perfect for playing cornhole outside with Shawn and a cold beer. (Sorry to all of you still surrounded by snow!)
2. My beautiful cousin (who is also a photographer!) is pregnant with her 4th baby. She already has 3 boys, but this time she is having a girl! She is due in April, and asked me to take her maternity pictures for her. Her pictures turned out absolutely stunning! I am obsessed with the light, and the white dress she wore that shows her silhouette thru the light. Can’t wait to share them!
3. While I didn’t have great luck at Costco getting my citrus trees, I did have great luck getting some primrose flowers for the front of our house. I got enough flowers for the planter boxes on both sides of my front door for less than $14! Don’t they just look so happy. I was definitely that annoying girl going thru every single flat of flowers, and picking out the best ones for myself.
Also, fun fact, that wood lining my flower bed is an old telephone pole! They were cutting one down across the street, and my dad asked them if we could have it. They said yes, and were actually glad they wouldn’t have to haul it away. So my dad cut them and used them to line my whole driveway, and my flower beds. I love them!
4. We are watching Shawn’s parents dog for the week. She is very helpful with doing the dishes, *wink*.

Julie Cooper – Your work is awesome. The Flanaagnns are friends of friends, and i saw their post/pic on Facebook. We live in Atlanta – do you travel up here or are you just in Columbus? I would love more details and I see you are running a fall mini special. Thanks so much!Julie Cooper
I love the telephone pole idea! So cool! I need to plant some flowers soon, they really just make the yard so much prettier!
Beautiful pictures! …and your little doggie is so cute! :) LOVE!
Wow, those maternity photos look stunning! I didn’t get professional ones taken, but I kind of wish I had. I am super jealous of your weather, we are not going to get any break from winter until the start of April probably. I really need to move. Really.
The maternity shoot looks gorgeous! And I’d give ANYTHING for 70s right now! Share some of that warm weather wealth! :)
Love that you do these fun Friday posts! The lighting is absolutely stunning in that maternity picture! So beautiful!
THE TAPE PRANK!!! omg. I laughed so hard that Eric asked to see. I wish I hadn’t shown him so that I could do it to him. now he’s going to be on the look out. hahaha!!!
The photo shoot for your cousin looked like the most beautiful day — I can’t wait to see the pics! And your plants are beautiful, and your mom’s dog is adorable. I wish my dog did the dishes. haha Hope you have a great weekend, Natalie! :)
Wow! Those maternity pictures are going to be perfect! You’re flowers look wonderful, and don’t feel bad – you should see me when I’m picking out flowers. I rummage through every single one until I find the best! Love the upcycling of the telephone poles, such a great idea.
What a bold little dog! So cute. And, I really need to try that tape prank on someone- so funny!
Wow. Those maternity pictures are going to be stunning!
So jealous of the 70s. I’m currently wearing a 3 layers and sipping hot tea. There is a 50 day on the forecast though so I’m getting a little too bubbly about that.
Have a great weekend!
SOooo jealous of your weather! Give me some sunshine! Love those telephone poles – what a great way to recycle!
Send your warm weather my way, please! It’s -2 out by me right now! I’m really trying hard to convince my husband to move to California (and I’m serious)…one day! :) Sounds like you had a great week! That’s so funny that your in-law’s dog likes to stand on the dishwasher! And that tape prank is hilarious! Have a great weekend, friend!
SO jealous of your super-nice weather, girl! I can’t even remember the last time I saw green grass! Bring on spring. ;) HAHA! and I saw that video on Facebook and I was like, uuuup I know what’s coming this time! LOL.
