Friday evening, Sean and I went snow-tubing. I had such a blast. Minus a little accident where I proceeded to smack right into the barriers full speed because I didn't use my brain. There was a reason why there was a big sign that said to walk down and not tub down. Doh! Let's just say that my ear and my left forearm paid the price. But I will heal. The night was made complete with a fire-pit and smores. I guess, winter isn't so bad after all.

Saturday evening, Sean and I attended his rugby banquet. I had a good time but in truth there is just so much fun you can have at a rugby banquet if you are not a rugby player. There are inside jokes, hollering, nick-names, etc.

I think the best part of the night was the after party when I ran into two of my sorority sisters. I hadn't seen the two of them since I graduated so it was a nice surprise. We made plans to see each other again and I invited them to some rugby games. I think they are going to use me to meet some single rugby guys. To think I was just saying that I didn't have anymore single friends.

As a person who is interested in taking good pictures, I guess they weren't kidding when they said natural light is your best friend. Some of the pictures taken at the banquet did not come out great since it was so dark and I'm trying not to use the flash.

Hope you all had a great weekend!
xoxo ♥

You have such a gift!!!! ;)

These photos are absolutely stunning!

And yes, I hear natural light is best!

I try to avoid my flash at all costs.

I've never had Relax: Pink!!! I will have to give that a try sometime ;)

Sorry to hear you had a tiny accident tubbing. I've never been. Besides normal sledding as a kid.
And tubbing on the water, forget it! :)
I did it a few times and holy cow was I sore the next few days! My whole body!
Great work out but I didn't find the joy in it. ;) Especially being skidded across the water, face down. LOL!

Keep posting photos! I love admiring them, and your pretty self!

Christelle said...

I would've done the same thing when tubing, I'm sure! Glad you're okay and I love your furry hat!

The snow tubing pictures are so cute! Looks like fun! And love the banquet pictures. You look gorgeous! Just curious how Sean let you take so many pictures :)

Emily Gilbert said...

Pass the Relax over this way!!! LOL. You and Sean looked so nice for his banquet. Despite it not really being your "thing" I'm sure it was fun to get all dressed up. (& the pictures still look nice despite no "natural light"). No worries! Sorry about your tubing incident though :(

Law_Fal said...

You look so pretty! glad you had an adventure filled weekend. I would be so scared to snow tube lol but then again I've never really seen that so much snow in real life so I probably would be too amazed to be scared :-)

THE mom said...

I love Relax!!! It's sooooo yummy! LOL.

Good gracious rugby is amazing! I was under the weather a bit on Saturday but still had an AMAZING time at the pitch. Your pictures are GREAT btw.

P.S. You can keep all that snow! ahahaha just kidding. You looked cute in your furry hat :-)

Looks like you guys had an awesome weekend. I'd love to go snow tubing.

BTW, you guys clean up well. Love the semi-formal shot.

The Mrs./The Mom said...

Pretty pictures as usual!

We went tubing last month and had a blast! I couldn't get many pictures though because it was cold and snowy- I just couldn't, lol!

Cece said...

Glad you at least tried the tubing even though you got hurt. It does sound fun. What a nice rugby banquet! Fancy!

two birds said...

YeamieWaffles said...

I adore the hat in your first photo and think that you look beautiful in the dress too, this must have been such a fun weekend for you guys.

Jessica Jean-Marie said...

Looks like you had fun! Nice photos, by the way. Natural lighting is great, but it can be annoying when things come out too dark. Some photos can be lightened through Photoshop, though :)

I love Red Relax RIESLING! That pic of you holding the wine glass is so good!
My maiden name is Brown, so I wish hubby & I could visit that brewery. He is a fan of beer! And he is a fan of Nancy Brown! HA!
Hope you are much better. :)

Whitney Cypert said...

I told Garrett that y'all went snow tubing and he got so jealous. I want to go right now! I knew you would look gorgeous for the banquet and I wasn't wrong. You look so classy! And I hate trying to take pictures when it's too dark because I have gotten to where I hate using the flash!

Brittany said...

These pictures are SO.FREAKIN.GOOD. Your life looks like it belongs in a magazine (you do such fabulous things and the pictures are amazing). Just when I thought you couldn't look anymore gorgeous snowtubing (ummm, excuse me, who on earth can look THAT good snowtubing?? I hate you.) I see the banquet picture and you look SO so so beautiful! Love that LBD!

Desiree Macke said...

Snow tubing, a fire, and s'mores sound like such a good time. Too bad winter accompanies those three things most of the time.
The first photo of Sean makes me giggle... Was he not feeling the solo snap shot?

Makaila said...

Your snow experience looks soo fun!! And your photos are amazing Faith. Seriously. You capture the atmosphere.

Pegster said...

Winter is definitely fun when you are doing fun things in the snow. Snow tubing looks like so much fun.

You are such a great photographer, can't believe you've only had your camera for such a short amount of time. The pics are so beautiful. Love that last picture of you guys.

PS - Sean looks so uncomfortable in that pic where he is posing, I think he wants to go back to making crazy faces at you when you take his pic :).

toi said...

you hair is growing beautifully. I like your hat. and the pictures are awesome.

my weekend was great, hubby and I went on a date :D!

Rebecca said...

That food looks so yummy!


Kristen said...

Um I'd like some of that Relax Pink ASAP. Yum!

Mrs JK said...

Snow tubing sounds like sooo much fun, Im so jealous :). Sorry about your mishap, hope it wasn't too bad! You and Sean looked great at the rugby banquet. Then again, you always do :)

Kathy C. said...

Loving your winter hat! Glad you had fun in the snow! I still need to get out and do some form of snowy activity...I'm such a freeze baby though! The prospect of s'mores helps though haha.

Carolyn said...

Snow tubing sounds like so much fun!!! I used to love sledding when I was little, but I haven't been since I "grew up"! Maybe we'll have to go next winter!

NikG Life + Style said...
