Mimi’s Favorite Things | April 2013

WINNER UPDATE: Random.org picked commenter #9: frozen custard for Magda!!

If you didn’t already know, I’m an ice cream person. I could eat it on a daily basis. I could eat it for dinner. And yes, I have before. We all have, right? :) Cold Stone has always been my weakness, but since there is no Cold Stone drive-thru and it can be a somewhat pricey treat, I’ve been able to limit my cravings. Recently though, I saw an ad for the Culver’s Mint Oreo Concrete Mixer. Its not like mint and Oreo are a new combo, but it sparked my ice cream craving and I had to make a Culver’s visit. Let’s just saaaaaay, I haven’t been to Cold Stone in a few months.

Culver’s is a big chain in the Midwest where I grew up and in recent years they’ve taken over Arizona too. Thank goodness! Their ButterBurgers are oh-so-good, cheese curds an added bonus for this cheesehead, and their frozen custard (specifically the Mint Oreo of course)…deliciously yummy! So this month I share a $25 Culver’s gift card with you. Take the fam out for dinner, try out Culver’s for the fist time if you haven’t already (you must, you must!), and make sure you try custard for desert :)

When: You can enter now through Wednesday, April 24th. The winner will be randomly picked and announced on Thursday!
Who: Anyone and everyone that loooves Emily Snitzer Photography, and lives in the continental US with a valid postal address.
How: All you need to do is comment below on this blog post, and be sure to enter your email address. Don’t worry, your email will only be visible to me. Easy beans, peeps!

Hope I didn’t trigger too many sweet tooths! ;) Just in case, look up a Culver’s in your neighborhood and watch the below video ;)

Midweek Randomness, take 47

Somehow it has been over a month since I’ve shared my weekly random babble. How in the world? And what…its mid-April already? Ay-ye-ye! I know for those in the Midwest (like my fam) and other chilly parts of the country, winter is draaaaaaging on, but for me it has flown by just like that! The last few months have been filled with weddings, traveling, spring portraits, kitchen remodeling, and lots of visitors. Its been crazy, its been amazing, but I find myself looking forward to less travel, a quiet office, cooking in my kitchen, and hot summer days…aaaah yes. I’m sure I’ll be hating summer in…a couple weeks!

Lately I have been getting lots of people asking when I’m going to FINALLY share pictures of the completed kitchen remodel. I promise, it will be very soon! I have been working on the finishing touches before I took the final and official “after” pictures. This week I’m checking off the last task of hemming and hanging the curtains for the window. We’ll see how my sewing skills fair and if I can actually get this one done on my own.

Did you know my sister got married?? She did, and I was super thrilled to capture the day for her in our hometown in Wisconsin. It was a beautiful day, it was a day filled with lots of love, so much happy, it was a bit unconventional, but it was SO my hippie sister ♥ Love her and my new bro-in-law!

And this is me as the hippie photographer :)

Oh yes I did: stayed up until 1am sewing my brother’s Boy Scout patches. I must befriend a good thimble for next time. Ooooowww, my fingers!!!

Currently: reading Warm Bodies by Isaac Marion. You know I love those teenage zombie/vampire/monster love stories. I can’t resist! Just started it and love that I’ll have a movie to go see after I’m done. This means I finally finished (and LOVED) Stephenie Meyer’s The Host. Seriously good read and again, I’m excited that I have a movie to see for this one too! Hard to explain the plot of this one, but its about souls and the bodies being a “host” for the souls. Kinda end of the world-ish. Definitely a love story. And fun that it takes place in Arizona.

My current and next read…

Enjoy the rest of your week!

♥ Emily

Diana - April 25, 2013 - 5:28 pm

I haven’t read the books, but I can tell you both movies are so great! Especially Silver Linings Playbook! BEST MOVIE EVER!

Allyson + Luis | Yuma Arizona Wedding Photographer

Allyson and Luis were married on 3.30.13 in their hometown of Yuma, Arizona at Allyson’s family farm. I had been so looking forward to their big day…a farm wedding, a beautiful couple, and add to it a bride that is a designer that you just know will put together a gorgeous day. From the smallest of details, Allyson planned the perfect day. Beautiful succulent details, lots of amazing DIY decor totally matching her style, fun entertainment for the guests, and on and on. I loved being a part of it all!

Those were well done. I’d like to talk to you @ some work photos.

Mimi’s Favorite Things | March 2013

WINNER UPDATE: Random.org picked commenter #5: Debbie!!! And she even likes piggies! YAY :)

With all the work going on in our kitchen this month (remodeling, not cooking silly!), I figured it would only be fitting that I give away one of my favorite things in the kitchen!

Yep, that is a pig cutting board my friends. For those of you who don’t know, I had a serious OBSESSION with pigs when I was young. My room was decorated with pigs from floor to ceiling, I wanted a pig as a pet (my wish even came true for a short stint), and I decided I would be a pig farmer when I grew up. That was until I discovered what these pig farmers really did. eek! No! Now I opt to have random pig decor around the house, including this cute little guy that we received as a wedding gift.

So I hope you like piggies too! The winner will get their very own pig cutting board, or a hen or a plain old square cutting board if you must :)

When: You can enter now through Friday, March 22nd. The winner will be randomly picked and announced over the weekend!
Who: Anyone and everyone that loooves Emily Snitzer Photography, and lives in the continental US with a valid postal address.
How: All you need to do is comment below on this blog post, and be sure to enter your email address. Don’t worry, your email will only be visible to me. Easy beans, peeps!

Jessica Riggs - March 20, 2013 - 10:49 am

I share you obsession with pigs!! They’re soo cute. I have what some consider too much piggy stuff but I still think its not enough lol

Kimberly Sweet - March 20, 2013 - 11:05 am

My mom had one of these when I was a child. I loved it, I remember cutting carrots for soup on it for her.

mom - March 20, 2013 - 2:04 pm

I love piggy cutting boards!

Debbie Leque - March 20, 2013 - 3:08 pm

I still love looking through your photos!! Oh and I wish you lived in WI so I could use you. And the pig thing…I collect pig stuff too (sort of goes with the job)!!

Angie Zinns - March 20, 2013 - 10:24 pm

I love piggies too and have a rooster/ farm country kitchen. Learned something new about you too!

Machaela - March 21, 2013 - 6:45 am

I feel like I should have known by now you had a thing for pigs. We need to hang out more.

Teresa B - March 21, 2013 - 6:18 pm

I like pigs but I love winning even more :-)
