A friends and photos type of weekend!

Last weekend was full of friends and photography, two of my favorite things!  Friday started off with the school talent show, which I'll blog about later in the week. I somehow ended up with the role of the school yearbook photographer, so I had a front row seat this year for the show! Then at 2pm, the entire school staff (from principal all the way down to the maintenance crew) went on a hike along the coast, ending on top of a mountain with a gorgeous view of Yeongdo Island. 

This is all of the people who work at my school
(minus a few teachers hidden behind the top row).

These are the people I'm the closest with at my school, because we have "tea time" together after 1st period everyday. 

Then we finished the night off with dinner at a fancy duck and pork restaurant overlooking the ocean!
Saturday morning was actually spent at home! I made a loaf of pumpkin bread from scratch for breakfast and we lounged around catching up on some TV! Then Saturday afternoon, we met up with Gary + Sharon for an engagement photo shoot on the back of the island!  Here's a little sneak peak of some un-edited photo's that I posted on Instagram yesterday.  Aaron took the top left and bottom right photos and I took the top right and bottom left ones.  I can't express enough how much I love working with my husband! :)
We stopped at Cham (our favorite restaurant) on our way home from the photo shoot for some good ole' Dol Sut Bi Bim Bap, our go to menu item!  

Then we watched the Korean movie "A Moment To Remember" which made me absolutely ball my eyes out!  Of course Aaron had to grab his iphone and film me balling - the perfect blackmail for later! I told him I'd get him back if he ever tried to use it!  Here's a youtube link to the entire movie with English subtitles if you need a good cry one night!

Sunday, I met Gill and Sam for "Tea for Three" in Suyeong.  We had an American style brunch at a darling cafe overlooking the Gwangan Bridge!

Then, at 2pm, Aaron and I met up with our new friends Bobby and Jestine (who we met after they e-mailed us about doing their engagement photos) and rode the bus to Amnam Park for their engagement photo shoot!  They were NATURALS!  Aaron and I had so much fun with them in the woods! **(I took the top 2 and the bottom left and Aaron took the bottom right photo.) We ended up choosing 97 photos from their shoot to edit!  That was a record, for sure!
After the sun went down, we all rode to Nampo for dinner together at mine and Aaron's favorite Indian restaurnat!  The food was delicious as always, but even better this time because Bobby picked up the tab as a thank you for the photo shoot!  Woot Woot! :) 

Then we went home, went through all the photos from tonight and last night, picked our favorites to edit, and called it a night at 9pm!   I think we both needed all that extra sleep after having such a fun and busy weekend!blog-signature
