Lets Go NINERS!!

Yup, we're a 49ers family!
Welcome to part two of our family portraits. Check out part one here.
Photos taken by Ryan Alexander.

Since we were getting our family photos done,
I thought it would be a fun idea to take some in our 49ers gear.
Hubs has his very own man cave, which I helped him paint, thats decked out in 49ers stuff.
I decided he should have some fun family photos in there of us rockin' SF red & gold!
 Zander's face crack me up in this one.
Looks like he is saying "no no" to someone being naughty. HAHA
 This one is so funny! The kidlets got a kick out of Hubs hanging Zan upside down... As you can see....
 Beautiful, sweet Kiah-Girl.
 My little Zander-Bug, cutie.
 Handsome little Buddy-Boo, Brucey.
 With Daddy.
 These are my sweet loves.
 And with me. ♥ I love Brucey's smile in all of these.
Go figure, put him in his 49ers jersey and he gets all happy. ;)
 A little tickle attach on Zan. He is the youngest and easiest to pick on. ;)

Currently Channeling My Inner Mrs. Frizzle

Dress/belt: Old Navy, Blazer: Maurices, Shoes: a gift from my sister via Foever21, Tights: Ebay
Headband: Agape Love (made by me), Necklace: DIY here


Loving: Colorful and or fun whimsical patterned tights! Ok this kind of thing is so out of my style box, but I got this idea in my head that I NEEDED some fun musical note tights to match this headband I made! So I did a search for some and I am SO glad I did. I got so many compliments on them, I felt fabulous and I was happy all day remembering one of my favorite childhood shows Magic School Bus. Anyone else remember that show, and the awesomely quirky teacher Mrs. Frizzle with her themed outfits to go along with their "field trip" of the day!? I totally felt like I was channeling my inner Mrs. Frizzle. I wore this outfit to church, and I was on the worship team, so I totally felt "themed". ♥

Surprised by: Ummm... Just how COMFY these shoes are! Believe me, I got a few worried glances and comments about these "killer stilts" but TRULY, these are probably the most comfy heels I've worn before, aside from my heeled boots, which are also crazy comfy. Im guessing its because of the thick chunky heel, which I wasn't a fan of at first, but I totally grateful for them now. ;) I wore these all day, and my feet were not killing me at the end of it. ;) Also, how cute is the little strap! Ive been wanting so cute heels with a strap like that! ♥ Thank you, Sissy!

Wanting: The Galaxy Note 2, on man this phone looks SWEEEET! Thing is, Hubs and I dont even have smart phones... Dont even have a phone plan for smart phones! Hubs has been reluctant to change/upgrade our plan. But he is slowly coming around. We even went in to see about new plans and prices. Sooo, we may actually upgrade soon. And if we do, Ive got my eye on that phone, it looks sooo cool. If anyone has one, I'd love to hear more about it. Do you love it or what!?

Watching: Hubs and I love watching Walking Dead. Boy, this season is crazy! Who else is watching? Also The Hubs and I recently started watching Once Upon A Time on Netflix. Its a pretty good one, especially if you like fairy tales... This one is a twist on all the fairy tales. I'm really loving it so far! Also watching a lot of football lately too! Lets go NINERS!

Reading: Mocking Jay, the last book of the Hunger Games. I'm half-way through, and when that's done I will start Reached, the last book in the Matched Series!

Listening to: Hope Now by Addison Road. I'm actually practicing this song right now, hoping to do it as a song special in church. Also contemplating uploading a video of me singing it to the blog... Would anyone be interested in hearing/seeing that!?

Planning: Mine & The Hubs 8 year anniversary vacation! Yes Hubs and I will have been married for 8 years on December 16! And we want to do a 5 day getaway! Im very excited for that. I definitely need this break and time to relax and just have some time to have fun and enjoy my hubby. ♥

Hoping: Things will start getting better with certain situations by or before Christmas so that we can have a happy end to this year. 

Inspired by: Of course Illene, since I first saw these "currently" posts on her blog!

Whats up with YOU currently?

Trading {Sponsor} Spaces

If you follow me on instagram, you know that I mentioned doing ads a little different this month.
Because December is usually a time we are all pretty low on extra cash, I thought I would offer my sponsor options differently this month. Now, of course if you'd like to, you can still PURCHASE an ad space too.
But for those of you looking for great advertisement without spending the extra cash...
I have options for you.

For December, I am offering ALL ad spaces for product trade!
I believe this can be a win/win for all.
Not only will my sponsors be getting advertisement in the form of a button/feature/giveaway, 
but also each time I wear or use your item in a post (which I will link to you in) its even more exposure. 
And of course in return I have some fun new products to wear/use. :)

This is how it will work, basically its going to be a equal/fair value trade.
So, item(s) worth must match worth of ad space.
For example, say someone wants to trade with me an item from their shop, thats listed at $10, 
they could trade for my small ad which is $10.
Or if they want to send me 4 $10 items, or something of more value,  
they could trade for a $40 ad (my featured ad) and so on...

This option is open to ALL of my ad spaces, prices range from $115-$10.
And depending on value, you can even choose to do several months with a smaller ad,
or choose 1 month of a bigger ad, its up to you.

I will of course have to approve of the items I receive.  
So if you are interested, and have a shop with items you think would suit my style/needs,
 please email me!
Be sure to put "SPONSOR TRADE" in the subject line and include links to your blog & shop.
As well as what ad space you would prefer. Email me at agapelovedesigns[at]yahoo[dot]com

Family Portraits

Over the weekend my family and I got our photos done by the amazing Ryan Alexander.
We have never had our family photos professional done, so I was thrilled, excited and even a bit nervous!
But I just LOVE LOVE LOVE how they came out. Ryan is great, and I very highly recommend him.
By the way, he also creates beautiful & meaningful subway art prints & canvas' in his shop here.
I actually own one of them, its perfect. Ive written about it here.

Anyways... On with the photos. There we SO many I wanted to share with you all.
But I've limited them, and this post is STILL going to be long.
So I decided to break it up into two posts, these ones in our family outfits, the next in our 49ers gear!
 Zander, my youngest, had just woken up from a nap and was a little grumpy at first.

The Hubs & I. ♥

My Kiah-Girl. ♥

My studly little man, Bruce, or Brucey as I call him. ;)

And the little booger, Zan.

I LOVE this one of Zander, it has a kind of "super hero" feel to it.
 Zander is such a character, I truly believe he may be an actor one day, this photo is so 'him'!

Kinda digging the seriousness of this photo.
Love this one.

Now, we've got some smiles going on.
And I reminded Zander that if he was good we would take the kids out for Ice Cream.
He was mostly all smiles after that! ;)
Tickle attack!

The kidlets.
I believe, and its SO HARD to pick just ONE, but this may be my favorite of the kidlets together.

This one is sweet too, though, Brucey was kinda the awkward kid out. haha
He is SO shy, he tends to get that "awkward" smile and stiff 'pose' when the camera is on him.
I love this one too.

My husband is gorgeous. Hello eye candy. haha ;)

I cant wait to get these up on our walls now!
Do you have a favorite?
I'll be sharing the 2nd part of our photos on Friday. :)
