I know I have been missing.in.action lately, but hopefully I will do better starting now.

1. My sister's and I have started a girl's night/bible study once a week. We started tonight and we are beginning with the basics. I have read parts of Purpose Driven Life before, but never did it in a group so we decided this would be a good starting point. We had an awesome time tonight discussing the first few day's and I can't wait to see what is in store as we get further along.

2. I have been spending lots and lots of time with this little one....and I love it! She is at such a fun age. This picture is from our looooong walk this morning.

3. I finally met this perfect little baby...Samual Larkin. He is so precious!
Gotta love the natural mohawk.

This video made my day so I had to share it. Enjoy.

Can I just say that I am counting down the minutes to kickoff Saturday?? ROLL TIDE ROLL.

I will be spending my weekend in Tuscaloosa and I cannot even express how ecstatic I am.

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 16

Day 16 is songs that make me cry...

Unfortunately, I am a crier and lots of songs have the potential to make me cry.

These 2 make me cry EVERY single time.

Sarah McLachlan-In the Arms of an Angel

Amazing Grace.
Amazing Grace was played at my Grandmother's funeral and it was one of her favorite songs.
It always brings me to tears.

Happy Monday!!

2 days until my trip to Chicago and 19 days until Alabama football!!!


30 Day Blog Journal-Day 15

So today was the day...the day that I parted ways with my birthday balloon from JANUARY.

I thought this thing would never stop singing. I have had it stored away in my closet for months and every time I accidentally bumped it, I had to hear the 2 minute song...

"It's your birthday, have a happy birthday.
Your birthday comes just once a year, so now it's time to cheer."


As much as I loved the balloon that my sis got me, I had to throw it out today. I was doing some major cleaning and it had to go.

Day 15 is dream home.

Since we are dreaming...

This could quite possibly go on forever, but I will stop here.

Bye Bye Weekend, Hello Monday!

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 14

Day 14 is favorite non-fiction book.

The BIBLE is my favorite book, but the only other nonfiction book that I have read was...

This was a required reading for one of my classes and it was an amazing book!!

It is about a special education teacher who dealt with extremely troubled children and this book will change your life. I highly recommend it. I was not much of a reader back in the day when I had to read this, but I couldn't put it down and read it in 2 days.

Happy Saturday friends!

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 12 and 13

Day 13 is favorite fiction book.

I obviously can't pick just one, but if I had to pick a favorite author it would be Nicholas Sparks!!
I have been obsessed lately and I am on a mission to read each and every one of his books.

Day 12 is something I am OCD about...

I have become quite the slob lately, but it is so unlike me. I have been living with my sister and her husband since January and because of lack of storage space, my clothes are always everywhere. One thing that hasn't changed is my obsessiveness with my shoes being organized. I cannot stand not having my shoes easily accessible.

I wish I had this closet!! haha

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 11

Day 11 is a photo taken of me recently.

This past weekend I took a road trip to CiNcInNaTi, oHiO.

During my family beach trip, which I have yet to blog about, I met an amazing family. Our families bonded immediately and it was like we had known each other for years. They invited my brother and I up for an extended vacation and we happily accepted. We drove up last Thursday morning and stayed until Monday. We had an awesome time. Friday night, I got to go to the Rascal Flatts concert...

All 4 of us~ Kevin, me, Amanda, and Justin

I will try to blog more about my family beach trip to PCB and my trip to Cincinnati soon.

Stay tuned...

30 Day Blog Journal-Day 5

Day 5 is your favorite quote.

"Thing's don't have to be extraordinary to be beautiful!"

I don't even remember where I heard this quote, but I have been obsessed for a long time.

I enjoy the little things in life and the smallest things give me so much joy.

Little things in life that make me happy:

hugs and kisses from my nieces and nephews
sunny days
a text from a friend saying hi
a phone call from a family member for no reason at all
looking at the stars
Sonic happy hour
blog comments
laying in bed on a rainy day
driving around with my windows down listening to music
the list could go on and on...
I don't need fancy things to be happy.
