Scrapping Weekend – kinda

Reporting here live from Roanoke, Texas – a scrapbooking weekend with some of my BFFs!  However, I’m not scrapping.  I am, however, doing picture related activities.  To start, I scored a new scanner.  It was $54, but the cashier made a mistake – it was really $34.  Wait, that’s not right, it really was $54 – I grabbed from wrong shelf – but she gave it to me anyway for $34.  Next time, I’ll grab the $94 one!!!

I’ve been scanning old family photos – some over 100 years old.  Then, I got bored of doing that, and had a very relaxing massage.  I need to get those more often.  There is a massage school fairly close to my house – I may have to try them out.

At every retreat, my friend, Heidi, who also happens to be the most awesome reflector girl, went on a search to find a local cemetary/ghost town.  We found Elizabeth Cemetery – and took some snaps of some of the headstones.

Here’s a few of what we got….

Hot Legs | Shelley Edwards Photography

My oh my – talk about some hot hot legs & smoking hottie! I’m currently building my “boudoir” portfolio – and my friends are always willing to help me out!  I asked my friend, of course, if I could post the below images on my blog and was tickled pink when she said YES!  Hope Mike, her husband, doesn’t mind.  😉

Boudoir sessions are so fun!  I even think portrait parties, specifically “ladies only” parties would be a big hit!  If you’re interested, please let me know.

Newborn & Maternity Combo | Shelley Edwards Photography

My oh my, it doesn’t happen as much as I would like, but I was able to get my hands on a very yummy baby boy! I just love doing newborn baby sessions. Most people forget how “itty bitty” their babies were and I’m so glad the Whitney & Zay wanted to document it!

Their maternity session was so much fun too!

It smells AWESOME

Today was a snowday and I am cooking my BFF’s famous Chicken Noodle Soup! OMG – it smells delicious.

I’m sure she won’t mind me sharing her recipe – here it is:

1 whole chicken
3-4 stalks celery chopped
1 small onion chopped or 1-2 Tbsp dried onion
2 Tbsp Parsley
1/2 tsp celery seed
1 small bag baby carrots sliced up or 3-4 carrots sliced
3-4 Tbsp chicken bullion (I use Knorr Caldo de Pollo)
(Could probably sub 8 cubes)
2 packages Reames frozen egg noodles (Heid makes her own because she’s cool like that – I am using Skinner noodles)
Salt & Pepper to taste
Water…maybe 12 cups?

In large pot I put in the chicken and cover with water plus several inches over the bird. I add all the rest of the ingredients except the noodles& salt. Bring to a boil and let it cook til the chicken is done (an hour? meat should be pulling away from bone on leg) I take chicken out and de-bone and shred up when cool enough. Meanwhile I add the noodles and let soup continue to cook on medium. Add chicken back in and simmer about 20 minutes. At that point I add more salt if needed (I taste) or water if it is too thick. I add more bullion if needed…I do this part by taste. Serve with crackers. : )
