Sara & Mindy Go To Indy

Last weekend, Sara and I hit the highway for a weekend trip to Indiana.  Hmm.. wonder what we would possibly be doing there?  ;o)

Oh yes, my boyfriend (her son) lives there, just outside of Indianapolis!  We decided to visit Ryan and check out the Indianapolis scene.

The first night we went to Broad Ripple with Todd and Carrie and ate at Ripple Bagel & Deli.  I could eat there EVERY DAY I think.  Who ever thought that a sandwich on a steamed bagel would be so heavenly?

We also walked down the street to Monon Coffee for a dessert drink.  My blueberry white mocha was also heavenly.  Sigh.

Sara had never been downtown and I’m always up for it!  Sooo on the rainiest possible day, we adventured around the city in our rain-boots.  Oh, and I bought a rain jacket that day too when we hit up the Rustic Moon Outfitters.  Wonder if I would’ve bought it if it WASN’T raining that day?

Unfortunately, I only took a few photos that weekend, but I did happen to get a few good ones in the Chocolate Cafe.  If you ever go to downtown Indy and find yourself in a circle, check out the Chocolate Cafe – South Bend Chocolate Company.  Well, unless you don’t like chocolate…

We each got mochas and Sara insisted that we each eat a chocolate covered strawberry.  Mmm… we had dessert for lunch that day.

Then, we had an early dinner (the sugar only lasts so long) at the Three Sisters Cafe in Broad Ripple.  Ryan found the restaurant on his iPhone and come to find out, it was featured on the Food Network before on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives!  That’s pretty neat.  :o)  It was a yummy little cafe with lots of vegan (and non vegan!) choices.

Sara also bought her first iPhone that day, and I officially feel left out!  Someday I’ll upgrade…

On Sunday we went to The Creek (Christian Church) where Todd leads worship for the 5th and 6th graders and Ryan was playing drums.  Unfortunately we had to pack up after we ate lunch and hit the road again.  A short, but sweet trip!!!!

Here’s a few photos from our fun weekend…

WooThemes Community Manager

My boyfriend has been on an official job hunt since December.  He always has some sort of freelance job on his plate, but he is in need of something with regular pay.  He has the strangest luck with jobs, which is ironic because he is SUPER talented and has an incredible work ethic.  I’m not just saying that because he’s my boyfriend, but that is the truth.  If only employers knew his value…

Behind the Scenes Video of Couples Photography

Last week, I posted a preview of the photos I took of Darah and Micah, the lovebirds who happen to be my cousin and her boyfriend.  I mentioned that Ryan took video while I took photos… and I’m excited to present to you a behind the scenes video of couples photography, thanks to Ryan Ray!!! This is the second behind the scenes video that Ryan has made for me, check out the first one here.  They are AWESOME!

Wasn’t the sun beautiful that day?  Would you be interested in a video similar to this of you and loved ones (cutting me out of it of course)?
