Where to start....

Don't tell me why, but today was the day, the LONG LOST BLOG has been updated....

Well it should go without saying that alot has happened since May 2010, which was indeed our last post. I'll give a very tiny recap, mainly bullet points to fill in the gaps and then one day, I may go into more detail on some of these items, but for now, here is my summary of the last 19 months! hahahaha

August 8, 2010 My brother married his perfect match, Meredith. She is absolutely stunning and fits right in with our family. We have a blast together. She has great style and makes us all laugh, which is a necessary qualification in the Zahorsky family.

In late August 2010 we started a 10 month discipleship class (EQUIP) at our church, Antioch Community Church. This class was incredible, we learned alot about the heart of our Heavenly Father, the power of the Holy Spirit and how we can take Jesus Christ into our everyday experiences.

September 2010 We ventured out to the beautiful city of San Diego, California for a week for David's annual State Games Conference. We had a lot of fun. Watched a Padres game, ate some delicious sushi, rode bikes on the beach, traveled to La Jolla, spent the day at Coronado, etc. This city is absolutely gorgeous, you should go visit.

Christmas 2010 was our first Christmas in our new house, it was super fun! The Zahorsky's celebrated with us in the new house.

February 2011 we adopted a dog from the shelter in town, HANK! He is awesome. Just when I thought I wasn't a "dog-person" this yellow lab mix has proved me wrong. He is so even tempered, great with kiddos and so chill. I LOVE HIM.

March of 2011 we started leading a lifegroup at our church. There are about 7-8 couples that come weekly, and we just talk about Jesus, what he is doing in our lives and how we can respond. This group of people that we get to walk with is so encouraging and life-giving. We love having everyone in our house once a week. It gives me a reason to clean the house!

April 2011 I (Taylor) started shooting weddings on my own! It has been such a blast and I absolutely love it. It is definitely more stressful than any other shoot I have done, but I kinda like the adrenaline rush!

May 2011 We traveled out to Santa Monica, California for a wedding! We were actually the photographers and we got to visit some dear college friends of ours while we were out there. It was wonderful. Our one free day was spent on the beach, riding a ferris wheel, visiting Pepperdine and shopping. Again, this was such a fun trip, grateful for our friends Mandy and Matt Bailey for letting us photograph their wonderful wedding weekend!

June-July 2011 we went to Thailand with about 20 other Equip students. This was a two-week mission trip that ended our discipleship class. It was such a life-changing trip. We saw people healed, the power of the holy spirit transform the lives of some Thai village people and ultimately just opened our eyes to a world we have never experienced. We had a blast. We were stretched in every way, but it was so good.

September 2011 David's beautiful sister, Stephanie married the love of her life, Caleb. We were so blessed to be a part of the wedding day and despite the threatening rains surrounding her wedding, the ceremony and most of the reception were kept dry and cool. It was perfect.

Fall 2011 has been just as busy as the other falls. I really thought it would slow down, but I was wrong. David has been doing what he does best, plan sporting events! And I have been as busy as ever photographing families, engaged couples, seniors and children. I have had the best clients this fall. Truly the Lord has known exactly what I have needed and it has been so fun. As with all photo sessions, save the dates, invitations, christmas cards and even senior announcements have all followed right along, making for a more intense Nov-Dec than I had imagined. But it is pretty much down hill from here.

And of course our BEST NEWS that most of you should know by know, but we are expecting BABY GIRL FORESTER in MARCH 2012. So we are super excited about this. We found this out in early fall and have enjoyed a very easy, no sickness, very exhausted first and second trimester! :)

We'll try to be better bloggers....

Baseballs and Birthdays!

Well a few weeks ago we celebrated David's birthday by going to the Redhawks game and watching from the suite! David's office has a suite and his boss was kind enough to let us use it for his birthday! Everyone from his office was there along with a few friends. It was a tight fit, but we all enjoyed it!

David loves superheros, so I ordered him a superman cake and I must say it was delicious.

Our friends, Andy and Lisa got married on David's birthday 3 years ago, so we celebrated their anniversary as well.

Apparently white polos are in.


and Jordan....

This is our friend Kim and her son, Evrett. This was Evrett's first baseball game! It was kind of a big deal for him!

He wouldn't take his eyes off the game!

We had alot of fun!

Happy 27th Birthday David!

Happy Birthday to the man of my dreams

There is so much I could say about David, but I am going to let these lovely pictures do most of the explaining!

We were running our first half marathon together in Tulsa and David wore his gloves the whole time! It was sunny, hott even and he was still wearing his gloves. Look how happy he is... I love him.

It is rare for us to get a picture together without him making a super fun face!

He can run. Fast.

Way before we liked each other....

This was at my family's Christmas in Corn, OK last year. It may seem a bit abnormal, but trust me, for this family, this is all very normal!

Happy Birthday David!!!!!

Flower Power!

So tonight when David got home from work, he mowed the yard and did some landscaping. Which is great, because our backyard was definitely needing some attention.

But look what he brought me:

Aren't they gorgeous? Who knew you could grow pretty flowers in your own backyard? I sure did not. I just hope that David and I do not kill them.

We seriously have some very pretty flowers and bushes in our yard that I do not want to lose, but I really do not know how to protect them from myself.

Well anyway... lots of pictures of our beautiful fuchsia flowers... all kind of the same, but just so proud of our effortless gardening.

We are considering opening a floral shop out of our home. What do you think?

By the way, does anyone know what kind of flowers these are?

I love Weddings!!!!!

Wedding season begins!!!

So a couple of weekends ago, David and I were in our friends' wedding in Tulsa. It was such a great wedding and we both had a great time.

I went up on Tuesday morning to spend the week with Aimee. I mean weddings are not really just a day, they are more like a week long EXTRAVAGANZA! I am sure any and everyone that was a part of our wedding knows how I feel about this! I had events planned starting on Thur night all the way through the wedding on Sat night! Anyway, I went to Tulsa and spent the weekend with Aimee and her family. We had a few last minute wedding things to do, some errands to run, dresses to steam and all kinds of random things! Aimee is so dear to me and I just wanted to be around her as much as I could! We had a blast. Well I did, I will let her speak for herself. It was such a great week! I even got some work done, thank goodness for internet and laptops!

I think we both enjoyed this wedding so much, because we were both in it and we are such good friends with the Bride, Aimee and the groom, Michael! They really have become some of our best friends! Here is a picture of them at the rehearsal on Thursday night! They were both so happy! Aimee was glowing - absolutely gorgeous!

Sadly, I realized after the wedding was over, that I did not take one picture of David and I together. What is worse, neither did Holli! :( I mean we looked good. And that doesn't happen very often, so I wanted to have some proof!

The wedding was perfect! Absolutely perfect. Aimee and her mom did a great job planning everything out and picking everything out. These bridesmaid dresses were the best, they are awesome! Lauren (maid of honor) and myself are planning to wear them to every upcoming event througout the spring and summer! Watch out! I could go on and on about this wedding, because I loved it so much, but here is a slideshow Holli made. I have watched it at least 3 times. If you are unsure how awesome Holli is at her job, then you will have no doubt after this slideshow!

HERE it is.

Okay, well that is really all I have. Since I only took like 4 pictures throughout the whole week, I will attach them, just a few pictures of all the girls!

We have a few more weddings coming up, most notable of course is Kyle and Meredith's in August! Yipee!!!

Welp... See ya later

Happy Birthday to me....

By the way this post was suppose to publish about two weeks ago, but for some reason it did not get published... here it is a little late!

I finally turned 25! I have been waiting for this birthday for a long time...I mean how great, one year closer to 30. That is when you know you are old! Totally joking of course, this birthday is definitely anti-climatic and slightly depressing. However despite all of the doom and gloom, I had an incredible birthday thanks to some very sweet friends and my wonderful husband.

My birthday was on Thursday. Yes I am an April Fools baby! So fun, although I am not sure I have ever had an April Fools joke pulled on me, or pulled one for that matter. What a shame. I love practical jokes! :)

One of my very best friends, Aimee brought me donuts in bed! I mean, what is better than waking up to a maple long john and donut holes. I love donuts.

I spent most of the day with Aimee, Holli and Kim. The four of us (+ Evrett, Kim's 6 week old son) went to lunch at Chedder's. I do love that place. Last year my parents came in town for my birthday and we had lunch there. I didn't know that I liked it as much as I do, but it is just great! I highly recommend it. Totally enjoyed this time with the girls.

That afternoon Aimee and I drove to Penn Square Mall in OKC to do some shopping - what a fun time I have with this girl. She is getting married in just a few days and I just love her so much.

Aimee dropped me off with David in OKC and then the two of us went to dinner at Cheever's, a fun contemporary restaurant in midtown. It was so lovely. I cannot wait to go back.

David knew that a great dinner was good, but not great, so he made reservations at the melting pot for dessert. mmmmmmmmmmmmm. This was fabulous. Dipping rice krispies, bananas and brownies in hot melted chocolate and peanut butter. Does it get better than this? Uhhh maybe at Braum's with a peanut butter hot fudge sundae... the jury is still out.

the best surprise was that he had Friday off of work for Good Friday, so we got to have a slumber party on the couch!!! I have begged David to pull an all nighter watching movies on our sweet new couch. And so that is what we did. Well kinda. We may have started a movie and we may have fallen asleep at 12:30 p.m. But it was still a great idea!

Then this is where the weekend gets good. Friday evening he told me that we had reservations on Friday night, because it was part of my birthday... I didn't know any better, so I showered and got ready and tried to guess where we were going. I was surprised when we pulled up to Golden Corral, but I still thought he was just lying to me to get me out the door or something... Then I walked in to a group of friends! You know they are good friends if they will eat Golden Corral on a Friday night!!!

LOVE IT! This was the first time David has eaten Golden Corral with me... and I am so glad we did.

Well that is it folks. Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the birthday messages and gifts. I had a great weekend. Thanks again to my fabulous husband who knows exactly what will make me happy: food.

Hope you all had a great Easter!
