Road trippin'

Hope all of you had a Happy 4th!!  Me and the fam took a road trip up to my hometown, Indianapolis, to spend time with my family.  We don't get up there enough, and my family are always dying to see me the kids.  We've been having a great time!

We decided on a whim to shoot up to Chicago for a few hours, as it's only like 2.5-3 hours from Indy.  Because of the holiday, downtown was jam packed with people enjoying the perfectly-slightly-overcast weather.  Trust me, on a July day while walking around town--you want it to be overcast.  Most people don't know, but Midwestern summers can be brutal.  

We also made our way over to the Navy Pier and spent time just hanging around beautiful Lake Michigan.  I definitely need to make a trip back up to Chi soon, as I wasn't able to see some friends that I have there since I was only there for such a short time.

Of course, we had Chicago's own Giordano's stuffed pizza before we left, as well.

Here are few snaps...

Oh, and how can I forget to mention--one of the birds out on the lake attacked my hair!!!!  Okay, I'm being a bit dramatic, but it did fly through the top of my hair, and hubs said it must have thought it was a bird's nest. Hardy-har-har.  So if you're ever in the Chi and you have a bush like me--watch out!!

Have a great weekend, ya'll!


Out and About: Little Five Points

This past weekend, me and friend went out to a really popular area here in Atlanta called Little Five Points to take some photos.  "Little Five" is an area well known not only for it's "eclectic" crowd, but also for it's unique shops.  There are so many small boutiques that sell everything you can think of, and not have to worry about seeing someone else in the same thing a day later.  There is also very good vintage shopping.  Scattered amongst the shops and boutiques are fun little eateries as well.  I like to think of it as the Melrose of Atlanta.

Like I'd mentioned, me and my friend were there to take some photographs of her for a future blog that she is working on.  Seeing that I am (in my own mind) a budding photographer, I was quite honored to be asked to take on this task.   We got a lot of great shots.  I also took a couple shots of the atmosphere of Little Five to share with you all.



American Apparel is the only "chain" store in the area.
