"THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE, IM GONNA LET IT SHINE, THIS LITTLE LIGT OF MINE, IM GONNA LET IT SHINE, GONNA LET IT SHINE!"
a few, fun facts about me
I am a happy girl. I love this life and everything about it. The Lord is my light and he makes ways for me. I love to be happy. I love to laugh, and laugh hard. I like to love and love alot. Talking is something I am good at. I love squirrels. Fall, troy football, Christmas, Santa Claus, the Easter bunny, fireplaces, and Christmas trees, shoes of all kinds, Pinterest, shopping, Etsy, turquiose, Alabama, Chicago, the Beach, 30-A, pictures, Target, forever21, walmart, AGD, my camera, children, babies from other countries, Zoes and JETER are just a few of my favorite things. Cold weather makes me happy. I like to wear brown, cream, olive green and turquoise (at the same time), I want to get married and I cant wait to be with that person FORVER. I long for the day I get to plan a wedding with my mom. The day I get to pick out my wedding dress will be one of the best days of my life. I dream of being a mommy, and pray that I am fortunate enough to be one. I want to own my own home and decorate it. I love quotes, and I love the Bible. Going to Church makes any Sunday a good one. I do not like to read unlless it is large print on only a few pages. I like beach hats and Ray Bans. High Heels are for the birds, I like my feet to be rubbed and my back to be scratched. Milos tea with splenda wakes me up every morning. A bath tub, shower and toothbrush are my best friends, I dont like dirty feet, and I dont like lotion on my hands. I like sunshine and rain, and I will play in both of them. trampolines and hot air balloons are just great. I like campfires and wearing warm clothes. The little things in life mean the most to me and looking forward to the future is my favorite thing to do =) I am a happy girl just trying to be me!

its so good to have people in my life that i call my friends!

In the middle of my LITTLE MESS, I forget how BIG i'm BLESSED
Today I was listening to a new CD I got and in one of the songs on the CD these were the lyrics..."in the middle of my little mess, I forget how BIG I am BLESSED." WOW!!!! This could not be more true. There are so many things in life that get me down, put me in a bad mood and steal my JOY in that moment of my life, that moment of my life that I will never get back. There are so many "little messes" in my life that I let get the best of me. I am really starting to notice those things and I am trying to look at those things differently. I was watching a youtube video with Suzanne not too long ago about letting the small things in life "steal your JOY." The preacher was speaking about this in the video, and used examples like....in the morning when we wake up and the outfit that we had layed out to wear doesnt look as good as we would like so we get mad and stomp around letting that "little mess" get the best of that moment, or we are driving to work and someone in the lane beside us cuts us off, and we shout something, calling that person a name, or having an attitude that is not pleasing to God" and we let that "little mess" get the best of that moment....those are moments we will NEVER get back. I am working to not let the "little messes" in my life still my joy. Learning to appreciate every minute I have, and with every breath I draw I am working to let it be pleasing to my GOD. Not letting the "little mess" keep me froom remembering how "BIG I am BLESSED!"
"Sailing on the ships of Heaven"
Brittany and I at Suzanne and Codys Engagement Party. This was the first time I really got the chance to have a conversation with Brittany. We talked forever! I am so thankful for that night. I am even more thankful for the weekS after this night. Getting to spend time with Brittany and little Baby Shep!
Mindy- Life would be the poorer with you! You make ME, ME! There is no one else like Mindy. No one that can make even the worst day better! A Mindy HUG is the BEST and I love you with ALL OF MY HEART!
You are for a REASON
In August of last year is when I first really started getting to know Suzanne. From the moment I first met Suz I knew she was special. When we first started becoming good friends I remember being so excited. NEVER though did I think our relationship would have grown in to what it is now. God was up to something when he gave me you! I look back on everything now, and I know exactly why you are my BEST FRiEND. Guess what...God knew too. There is not a day that goes by that I am not thankful for the friendship that I share with Suz. It really is one like no other! I would have never thought that I would get to be part of the most anticipated day of your life. The day you get married. I am so honored to have been asked to get to share that day with Suzanne and Cody and I am looking foward to many, many memories to be made. There is a lot I can Thank Suzanne for, but there are 2 things specifically. One, for being the example you are to me. For being the friend I can talk to and share the BEST and WORST with. For joining me in my walk with the Lord, and not only doing it with me, but encouraging me every step of the way. and 2nd, for introducing me to Tyson. For allowing me that opportunity, and for helping make it happen. THANK YOU so much for putting my number in his phone on New Years! If it werent for you (and Cody...he thinks he did it all) life just would not be the same. THANK YOU, SUZ
Times like these.....
Me, Mullet and my Suz at Alpha Gam Formal 2011
Amy and I before the first TROY home game. Looking back on memories made with you, I wouldnt trade one, I would do it ALL the SAME. Looking foward to many, many more! I LOVE YOU
Sweet Baby Shep
HEAVEN got another ANGEL
You made Heaven a little bit BETTER
Heaven needs angels, and on March 7th, 2011 I know Heaven got a little bit better when Brittany and Shep went to be with our Lord and Savior. They are sailing on the ships of Heaven, helping prepare a place for us to join them one day! Miss you both!

TY & ME @ Suzanne and Codys engagement party! So THANKFUL for this "mans" and I am looking foward to so much! God is so GOOD. He knows our needs and gives us people that we need. People to lean on in hard times, and people to share the best and the worst with. "You've given us EYES, grant us the power to USE THEM to TRULY see those you have put in our PATHS!"
