Busy, Busy, Busy (Part 1)

Well, it has happened– once again. I have abandoned my blogging duties, and I sincerely apologize. My life has been zooming along at a dizzying speed! But please don’t think I am complaining– it really has been a lot of fun. =)

Since I last blogged, several big things have happened. For one thing, my second oldest brother, Caleb, has gotten engaged to be married to a sweet young lady, Claudia. πŸ™‚ They are to be married in March of next year. It’s so surreal, but very exciting!!! =) The reality of it all is slowly sinking in… but I’m not losing my brother. However, I am gaining a sister! =)

Caleb, Claudia, and Claudia’s good friend, Madeline. πŸ™‚

Caleb and Claudia have asked Phoebe and me to take their engagement photos, but I don’t think we’re going to do them for another few weeks yet. It should be a lot of fun, though!! =)

Tacos!

The four Kautt (or almost) sisters πŸ˜‰ It’s funny how three of us are matching— Abby was earlier in the day too. πŸ™‚

In other news…. I’ve recently done a couple of impromptu photoshoots– I’ll post those later. πŸ™‚

This past Friday night, my parents, Abby, Jaden and I attended a string ensemble concert, in which my best friend played. πŸ™‚

Making a joyful noise unto the Lord…

You can see my best friend on the bottom left corner of this photo. πŸ™‚ She’s so pretty! =)

Visiting
Image
Me and Kathleen (my best friend). ❀ I was SO glad to get to see her (and her family) again after four months!! πŸ™‚

Abby and Mom visiting with Mrs. B. (Kathleen’s mom). πŸ™‚

Dad joined Jaden in playing “basketball” with some of the younger guys there. πŸ™‚ Fun fact: my Dad actually played basketball in highschool and college.
Image
Striped shirts abounded…. πŸ˜€
Image
Aw… poor Jaden missed the goal. 😦
Image
My siblings and I think that Mom and Mrs. B. look like they could be sisters. Don’t you agree?! πŸ™‚ I had to get a photo for “proof”. πŸ˜‰
Image
Little Miss Abigail B. πŸ™‚ Isn’t she darling?!

My family ended up staying at the church (where the concert was held) until around 11pm! πŸ˜€ Being that I didn’t go to sleep until like 1 am the following morning, and then woke up at 5:30 am, I only got about 4 1/2 of sleep that night. But, hey, it was totally worth it!!! πŸ™‚ I’d totally do it again, if it means getting to see my best friend for two days in a row. “What do you mean by ‘two days in a row’?” you might ask. Well,Β that part of the story will have to wait until my next post. πŸ˜‰

I β™₯ Thursday {No. 2}

Loving this song!! πŸ™‚

This skirt is absolutely adorable!! πŸ™‚ It the perfect color for a denim skirt, I love the fact that it has pockets and buttons. πŸ™‚

Rosette Knit Dress.

This dress is in such a lovely shade of blue! It looks extremely comfortable, and I adore the rosettes on the hem line. πŸ™‚

Not long ago, I would’ve thought that the colors coral and turquoise do not go together, but I think those two colors are very tastefully combined in the above outfit. I think the dark gray of the dress balances the look of theΒ  outfit. Adorbs!

Oh, my, wow! I LOVE this dress, it’s the very picture of perfection. πŸ™‚ I hope that my future wedding dress will turn out looking something like this. Although, I think (since I’d prefer a simplistic wedding) that I’d go without the lace train. It’d still be a very lovely dress, don’t you agree?
