One Month

I’m so excited! Thursday, Matthew and I, and I think my sister and my roommate, are all going to the Point of Grace Christmas concert!! WOOHOO!! Hannah and I went 2 years ago and it was incredible! I can’t wait!

Matthew and I celebrated our one month anniversary on Sunday. We had so much fun! We went to church together. (This man is SO amazing, he’s been going to the “Empty Chair” class with me, for support. It’s for people who have lost loved ones and are dealing with the emotions around the holidays. My whole family has been going because my Mamaw died in October.) Then we went to the mall for lunch and a movie. We walked around a little bit before the movie. After the movie we went to my friend’s church for their Christmas play. It was soo good! Very funny.

I feel so blessed. Matthew is so much more than I ever dreamed of. It's hard for me to come up with words to express how I feel about him. I love him. He is so good to me. He treats me like a princess. He does everything in his power to make sure I'm happy. I try to do the same for him. I have never had someone love me like he does. It literally makes me speechless.

I love him.

So Happy.

So tonight I'm going to Clarksville to help Matthew decorate his apartment for CHRISTmas. I may also meet one of his best friends and his wife. Not sure yet. I can't wait! I get to leave work at 1630. (Oh yeah. I'm using military time, since Matthew uses it. That way I don't get confused. Because I do. LOL!)

I'm so excited about this relationship. Matthew treats me so well. He always makes sure I'm ok. He gets along well with my family and friends... Which is SO important to me. I'm talking, my parents have gotten him 2 CHRISTmas presents! They have NEVER even thought about buying gifts for my boyfriends. They really like him. My heart is overjoyed.

Gotta go back to work. I'll update more later.

I keep wanting to update my blog, but every time I think about it, I’m at work, and I can’t really do it. Well, I’m at work now. On hold. With United Airlines. AGAIN! LOL! So I decided to start writing my blog. I may not post it yet, but I’m at least going to email it to myself so I will have it.

I’m pretty sure that not many people read my blog. But I know that some of my REAL friends do! Hehe. I mean, let’s face it. If you’re not subscribed to my blog, then you’re not my real friend…..Right?


So for those of you who actually do read my non-blog, let me just tell you some of what’s been going on in the life of me.

First of all, I’m having a small Christmas party on Saturday. WOOHOO! I’m so excited. We invited a few people from church, a few from Hannah’s work, one of my friends at work and her friend, and then a few random friends that aren’t church or work friends. LOL. Of course, some of the other people I wanted to invite, like my BEST friends, are ions away, so they can’t come. (Yes Jen, I know I’m writing humongously long sentences.)

Anyways. It’s going to be a potluck type thing. We’re going to be playing “Dirty Santa”, but I asked everyone to bring a nice gift. I don’t want anyone to end up with a crap gift. I’ve been there. Not so much fun! I have little gift bags for everyone to take home. There’s not much in them, just a few little things. I have a “Yule Log” dvd that we’re going to play some during the party. It has a fireplace and you can hear the crackling sounds. It will also play Christmas music at the same time. I’m excited. I bought some awesome cookie cutters to use. One set is from Williams Sonoma and they are shaped like ornaments. The other set is called “ABC Cookies” (For “Already Been Chewed”) hehe. They look like gingerbread men, but one has no head, one has a missing arm, and the other has a missing leg. SOOOO cute! I’m really excited.

Let’s see, what else…..

OH! We put our Christmas lights up last night! ‘We’ being my roomie Amanda and I. We had SO much fun!! I mean, we were so hyper. It was hilarious. We have icicle lights hanging on our awning over the door, colored lights around the sliding door to Amanda’s room, snowflake lights in our ‘garden’ on the patio, lights shaped like Santa next to the snowflake lights, and more lights on the bricks around the ‘garden’. It’s so pretty!! We also put up my 3 ft tall tree and decorated it. We officially have FOUR Christmas trees. One in the living room that is 6 ½ feet, one in the kitchen that is 6 ½ feet, the 3 ft tree in the kitchen on the hutch, and a 6 inch tall tree in the bathroom. If I had one for every room, I would do it! I was going to put the 3 ft tree in my room, but I don’t really have a good place for it. Oh well. I love Christmas!

Other news….Hmm….

OH! Just the BEST part!

I have a boyfriend now. This is the first boyfriend I’ve had in over 3 years. Crazy. He’s the sweetest guy. He pays attention to details, what I say, etc. His name is Matthew. He’s 34 years old. He’s in the Army. He joined the Marines when he was 18, and was in for 8 ½ years. Then he transferred to the Army and has been in for 8 years. He has a 10 year old daughter named Callie. I haven’t met her yet, but I’ve seen her picture and talked to her on the phone. She’s a cutie patootie. He also claims his ex wife’s two older daughters, Kristin (16) and Carey (14). According to him, they think I’m really pretty.

We met online. (I know. Big surprise, right!) We started talking online on Nov 9th. On Nov 11th we talked on the phone for the first time. We talked for hours. On Nov 14th, we had our first date. It was a group date with my roommate Amanda, her boyfriend (and my cousin) Eric, and my sister Hannah. It was fun. I felt more comfortable with them being there, since it was the first time I was meeting him. We all had fun. We went to Olive Garden for dinner. Matthew had everyone cracking up. He’s so funny. Then we went to see the new Bond movie, “Quantum of Solace”. He didn’t really want to see it, but he knew I did, so we saw that. (GREAT movie, by the way!!)

Our next date was just the two of us. On Nov 19th, he was supposed to meet me at my house at 5:30pm, to give me time to get home from work and change clothes. Well, at 5pm he sent me a text message asking what I was doing. Long story short, he got to Nashville at 4:30pm (an HOUR early) and went to a florist. When he walked in my house he had a purple rose, with purple baby’s breath, purple tissue paper, and a purple ribbon. WOW! I was blown away. He also had 3 Billy Gilman cds for me, because he knew I wanted them.

He's gone to church with me once. He's going to church with me this weekend, and next weekend. He believes all the same things I do. There's so much I could say about him, but it would take too long. And like I said at the beginning of this post, I'm at work.

Tuesday, December 2, 2008


I'm officially the worst at keeping up with my blog. So sad. I can't write much now, since I'm at work. But for those of you who actually read this, I wanted to say HI! I'll update later. Love you all!!

What's in store....

Well, history has been made. The first black president has been elected. Unfortunately he happens to disagree with many things in the Bible. As well as things this country were founded upon. He has the potential to completely destroy this country. What is going to happen to this beloved country? The place my heart belongs to. Will it survive the wrath of Barack Obama? I pray the Lord will spare us.

I pray for wisdom. For the truth to be seen. Prayer warriers, join together!

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

YOUR vote counts!

NEITHER CANDIDATE'S NAME IS MENTIONED IN THIS POSTING (except for a Gallup poll and Gallup shows Obama ahead overall).  ASK GOD IF HE WANTS YOU TO VOTE PRO-LIFE TODAY.  HEAR BOTH SIDES OF THIS ISSUE BELOW (they are my words and not some forwarded, hateful partisan jargon) and remember that Laura Smith is just a lover of life and not a stump-speecher (or a Republican).  PRAY THE ENDING PRAYER WITH ME IF YOU FEEL YOU CAN (and forward this email to all you know).  IF YOU CAN'T PRAY THE PRAYER, PLEASE, NO REBUKING EMAILS, OKAY?  IMAGINE MY VOICE AND SMILE BELOW.  AT LEAST READ THIS ENTIRELY ANYWAY AND THEN, DELETE IT AT WILL. 





If all the aborted babies could come back to life and vote in this election, who do you think they would vote for? 

How many babies have been aborted and how many votes would that be?  Just since Roe v. Wade in 1973, there have been an estimated 38,325,000 abortions.  They would definitely determine the winner of the 2008 election.  Let's be the voice for the unborn, ok?  If you cannot decide who to vote for, go to the voting booth anyway and as you are standing there, think of someone you know who has had an abortion.  Then, be the voice for that unborn baby.   If you love babies period, be their voice!  Biblically, the pro-abortion movement is tied to the worship of two idols, Chemosh and Molech, the gods of child sacrifice (go read 2 Kings 23:10, Lev. 18:21 or one of the other two dozen times these spirits are mentioned in the Bible).  


1.  "But if Republicans were for the war in Iraq and 4,000 American soldiers have been killed there, how is a vote for the Republican candidate voting for life? (whether for President, senate, local, national, whatever).


4,000 of our soldiers have been killed in Iraq, but 4,000 babies are aborted DAILY in America.  Soliders that died were of age and signed up for the military knowing they risked their lives.  No baby ever signed up to give its life.


2.  "But not just soldiers died in the Iraqi war.  Thousands of innocent Iraqi children died too."


I recently found a poem I wrote called "I'm Sorry Iraqi Child," during the Persian Gulf war in the 90's.  I HATE the death of innocent of children or the thought that their parents might die and leave them orphaned.  But from God's perspective in Scripture, he often destroys entire countries who have persecuted His people.   Babylon in Scripture is modern day Baghdad, Iraq. Listen to what God says about Baghdad:


Jeremiah 51:11 & 55. 

"Sharpen the arrows, take up the shields! The LORD has stirred up the kings of the Medes, because his purpose is to destroy Babylon. The LORD will take vengeance, vengeance for his temple. The LORD will destroy Babylon; he will silence her noisy din. Waves of enemies will rage like great waters; the roar of their voices will resound."  


3. " But that's the Old Testament.  Jesus is for peace." 


I agree.  Also, "peace" is a fruit of God's Holy Spirit.  When Armageddon is fought in the end days, however, countless lives will be lost.  So is God against Armageddon, which he will win? Also, if we truly believe in the Trinity, then we believe that Jesus was "around" when His Father fought every war in the Old Testament.  Jesus once said:


Matthew 10:34

"Do not suppose that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I did not come to bring peace, but a sword."


Matt. 24:6

"And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass."


4. "I am disillusioned with the government and probably won't even vote.  My vote doesn't count anyway."



I am disillusioned too.  Government is broken!  Republicans and Dems alike!  But, I get the Gallup poll into my inbox every day and it tells us that among church goers who attend weekly or twice monthly, McCain will win the vote 2 to 1 (65% to 28%).  Among non-church goers and non-Christians, Obama wins 2 to 1.  So what does that tell you?  IF YOU ARE A church-going Christian your vote will make the difference!  In the 2000, it came down to  532 votes in one state.  532!!!!!  If you divide that by the 100something voting stations in that state, that's only 4-5 votes PER VOTING STATION!  Imagine what might happen if you do NOT go to your local voting station!  Don't be one of the 4 or 5 that leave America with a candidate who does not support protecting the unborn.




PRAYER (pray this aloud if you can agree with it): "Father, may YOUR choice for President wind up in the White House despite if it is our candidate of choice or not.  We know you say in Prov. 6:16-20, "There are six things the LORD hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood,  a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a man who stirs up dissension among brothers."  You also say in Deut. 21:9, "So, you will purge from yourselves the guilt of shedding innocent blood, since you have done what is right in the eyes of the LORD." You spoke in the Bible of a people who sacrificed their children to idols and how it was the downfall of nations:  Psalm 106:38: "They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood," so the land of America is obviously desecrated due to our choices on this issue.  If we will end abortion Lord, the land will be restored and it will effect our economy, foreign affairs, health care (because you are Jehovah Rapha and so healing will be more easy to attain by even your children).  None of these issues will be solved by either candidate if they do not help end abortion. We also see that even though God LOVED King David enough to promise him that his lineage would sit on the throne forever (and Jesus is called "the Son of David"), He would not allow him to build the temple because he had "shed too much blood," proving that even if we are Your children but shed innocent blood, we can be forgiven, but the sin will continue to bear bad fruit in our lives somewhere down the road.  You said through Jeremiah, "...do not shed innocent blood in this place" (v. 22:3).  So Father, forgive America for the 38,200,000 abortions that have occurred here since Roe v. Wade in 1973.  Oh please, Father have mercy on us!  Help us to turn with our votes today and choose-life so that you might bless us again with a better economy, less global warming, better health care because we'll need less of it when you heal us, and improved foreign policies since peace will be upon us as you smile upon America. So Father, we pray for life to win-out today, whichever candidate you affirm when you look into his heart.  We pray that voters would have their eyes opened and hearts grieved and moved on this issue of abortion.  We pray all this in the name of the only One who matters: Jesus.  Amen."


God bless you and God bless America.

Day to day

My life seems so boring right now. I go to work every day. On Tuesdays I go to Kairos. On Sundays I go to my church. And the rest of the time I'm at home! I have friends, but we never seem to make time to see each other. I have NO dating interests. Or even the remote possibilities.

I'm trying to find out Who I am. We've been talking about it a lot in Kairos. "Who Am I?" "What is my pain?" etc. They are deep questions that you really have to take uninterrupted time to think about. Time that I have not exactly taken as of yet.

Sunday, October 26, 2008


This month has been very sad for my family. Especially my dad. First, his mom died. Then he pretty much lost his sisters too. They didn't die, but the relationship did.

A week later, a longtime friend of our family, Vickie, died. I grew up with her kids. Her oldest, Brandon, is a year older than me. Tyler is a year younger than me and she's getting married in 2 months. And the youngest, Cameron, is only 17. The visitation for Miss Vickie lasted longer than the 4 hours it was supposed to. We stood in line for 2 1/2 hours, just to pay our respects and see the family. It was heartbreaking, but also a testiment of how many people were touched by Miss Vickie. She will be greatly missed.

Yesterday, my dad's friend died. I'm not really sure if my dad would consider him his best friend or not, cause my parents' don't really have "best friends" (besides each other). But he did spend a lot of time with Frank.

Oh and then there's the tv issue. My dad has been waiting for years to get a new tv. He finally had the money to buy the 51 inch HDTV that he wanted, and when he turned it on, the screen was cracked and there were lines all the way across. And the store won't take it back, and the warranty won't cover it. He is so upset. I mean, he shelled out $2600 for this tv and it doesn't even WORK! I'm upset about it too!

So needless to say, not such a great month for my dad. Please pray for him.

Today, my Mamaw went home to see Jesus. And Papaw. Good for her. She's not in pain anymore. And she can spend the rest of eternity praising her Father.

For the rest of us left behind, its sad. Especially for my dad and aunts. They've had to watch both of their parents die from the same horrible disease. Its heart breaking. And at some point, it may have even been preventable. The really scary thing is, I've had a great uncle die from it too. And another great uncle and a cousin may have the same thing. There are class action lawsuits going on right now for the same reason. I wish my family could do something.

My parents are driving to Oklahoma right now. I'm not sure when the funeral will be. My sister and I will not be able to go. Which is kind of hard to deal with. Not sure how my aunts and cousins feel about that. But that doesn't matter. What does matter is that I got to see Mamaw a month ago. I can remember her that way, not the way she got in the last few days.

Taking things for granted

Today my eyes were opened to something everyone should see. My bosses David and Debra and their youngest daughter Felicia just got back from their mission trip to India. We got to see pictures and videos today from their trip.

We are so blessed to live in this country. To be free to worship the one true God. To have clean streets. To have water we can drink without worrying about dying from some disease. Definitely something to think about.

Thursday, September 4, 2008

It’s interesting how things turn around. One day you’re incredibly upset with someone. A few days later you’re feeling bad for them and wanting to help them. And then God shows you why. It’s an indescribable feeling.

* * * * *

I went to Kairos this week. I haven’t been since last May. It was, by far, the most amazing worship I have ever experienced. God was ALL up in that place! It was incredible. I will definitely be going back every week from now on. I have definitely needed it.

* * * * *

I am praying for Haiti. They have been hit pretty hard by Gustav and Hanna. Now Ike and Josephine are on their way. Please pray for the people of Haiti, as well as all the missionaries down there. I know there is a mission group going down on Saturday with New Missions. Please pray for their safety.

* * * * *

I am going to Grandma’s Camp tomorrow! I’m excited. Falon will be there, her usual upbeat self, so I’ll definitely be entertained. Hehe.

For those of you who don’t know what Grandma’s Camp is, here is an excerpt from their website.

Grandma’s Love
Hello Friends-
This is a little insight to what Grandma’s Camp is and will be to come!
Grandma’s Camp is run by many giving people. We all have a passion for children and helping the grandparents stay involved with their grandchildrens lives.
Marti Carelli-Gilbert is the founder and visionary of Grandma’s Camp. Have you ever seen the movie “We Are Marshall”? Yes! Great! Grandma’s camp was founded in memory and in honor of Albert Carelli, one of the coaches who perished with the football team in 1970.
Marti found a way to join children with their grandparents and to honor all other grandparents who never had the chance to meet their grandchildren.
Think about how much your family means to you! We know that our family is a very important part of our lives and we cherish the little times we spend. To spend more time with our loved ones is a significant goal of ours!
We are a non profit organization that works hard to fund camps throughout the year through your donations and volunteer work.
We will be posting blogs occasionally so check back with us to find out what’s new! Make sure you check out the video, and make a donation on our site!
Allison Vanderpool and Falon Morel
-Grandma’s Camp Volunteers

Needless to say, I’m excited.

I got the post back. Thank God. I was so upset about it. Thank God for postmaster delivery with the attached email when it doesn't send!

Making up for lost time

It's so odd to me. I used to blog almost daily. Now I do good to blog once a month! What happened to me? I used to be so good at writing and keeping up with my blog, even if it was superficial stuff! Now....nothing. So sad.

So I've been basically obsessed with the Olympics ever since they started. My sister and I have recorded it all. We're watching a little bit at a time, so we're like a week behind. Granted, we missed 4 days of watching the recorded stuff because we went to Oklahoma to see my grandmother. She has cancer and is not doing good. It was the first time I've been to her house in 5 years. Sad, I know. I'm not even sure she really knew we were there, or who we were. Anyways. Olympics. Michael Phelps! WOW! Can not get better than that. Gymnastics. I feel so heartbroken for Alicia Sacramone. Yeah, they won the Silver medal in the team final, but did you see her face?! She was devastated. Her 2 mistakes on beam and floor alone....if they hadn't happened, they would have won Gold. So hard to deal with. Proud of Nastia and Shawn for getting Gold and Silver for All Around! Makes me really wish I had stuck with gymnastics when I was little. Oh well.

I have been so aggravated today. UGH! First of all, I have had a TON of groups to price today....they keep piling up. (For those of you who don't know, I'm a travel agent....A Group Airfare Specialist) Secondly, the airlines have been taking forever to give me quotes. I mean like, it's taking half an hour or more to get a QUOTE! Not to mention actually booking a group! UGH! So annoying.

* * * * * * * * * *

I have majorly neglected myself. I have not been to Curves since April, before our vacation. I have gained weight. I've always been overweight, but this is an all time high. Not pretty. In fact, it's downright ugly. I hate it. I want to lose weight. I have the desire to lose weight. I just don't have the determination and discipline to do so. I'm trying to eat better. Not eating out as much, which is good for my weight and my wallet. But when you can't really afford to buy groceries except for maybe once or twice a month, it makes it really hard to buy healthy foods. I would love to eat all organic food, different varieties of foods, and would love to cook them! But my energy is around 0% when I get home from work. Which of course is because of my choice of diet and lack of exercise. It was much better to go to Curves when I had a buddy system. Now my buddy has moved away. It's hard to get back in the swing of things. Oh, and they closed the Curves location I was a member of. Now I have to pick from 2 other locations that are both out of my way. I'm leaning towards one, simply because I did not work there. LOL!

* * * * * * * * * *

God has big plans for my life. I know He does. I just don't have the slightest idea what they are! Well, ok, I'll be honest. I have a slight clue about some of them. But they are long term plans. Right now is just a big ball of fuzz. Am I in the right place? Am I doing the right thing? I hate not knowing. I trust Him. I just feel that maybe it should be a little bit clearer so I don't feel like I'm wasting my life away. This is the most frustrating feeling.

* * * * * * * * * *

I wonder if anyone is even reading this blog. Oh well.

Not Happy

Well, it still hasn't shown up yet. I guess I'll have to rewrite it. Or what I can remember of it. So annoying. Maybe later.

Friday, August 22, 2008


I emailed a huge long blog to post on here. But it's not here yet. Let's see if it shows up. I emailed it from my work, so it might take a while. But I'm freakin out, because I deleted the email from my sent folder AND from the deleted folder....since it was on my work email. So now I can NOT get it back. OMG! It better show up. I am NOT happy.

Ya Never Know

First impressions are not always true. I've recently made an aquaintance with someone who has won over several of my family members. Including myself. Until a few weeks ago. This person lied to me about something that is very serious in my book. Now it seems they are lying about even more serious things. I have lost trust in this person. Was I wrong to trust in the first place? Is this person also lying to my family members? Some who would be extremely hurt if that is the case. I pray this is not true. I pray this is all a huge misunderstanding. But at the same time, my instincts have a track record of being correct. That being said, my guard is most definitely up. Unfortunately.

Bittersweet Day

Today was the last Sunday that Bro. Jerry served TRBC as the senior pastor, after 22 years. It was definitely a bittersweet day. Bitter, thinking about all the turmoil that the church staff, church members, and the Sutton family have been through in the last year and a half. Sweet because we know that God has great plans for Bro. Jerry and his family.

We had a reception for Bro Jerry and his family tonight. It was scheduled for 4pm-6pm. It ended up being over 5 hours long. It was awesome to see that many people show up to express their love and support for our beloved pastor.

I look forward to seeing the great things that God has planned for the Sutton family, and for TRBC.

Growing up

Ever since I was old enough to care, my favorite color has been purple. Then at some point, I discovered that pink is pretty too. My bedroom has always been decorated (somewhat) with purple and pink, besides the few years that my bedroom was adorned with BASEBALL wallpaper. Once I finally got out of the baseball room, I had purple walls. SO pretty.

I've gone through flower, pastel, etc bed comforters. Posters on the wall. Stuffed animals all over the room. Etc. Now it's time for an adult look. I bought a new comforter for my bed. It is black and a tan/gold color. Wide stripes of different fabrics. Very elegant. Very beautiful.

My plan is to decorate my room around my comforter. Tan/gold colored curtains. Not sure what else yet. I'm very excited about it.

Ah, the joy of Blogging

Recently a friend of mine wrote a blog about how her life is full of things that aren't really "blog worthy". Yet she keeps writing them. And people enjoy her spin on random, "non-important" happenings. I feel the same way. My life is so boring right now. I sleep. I wake up. I go to work. I go home. I watch tv. I go to bed. And then it starts over. On Saturdays I sleep in. I wake up. I watch tv. Maybe do some scrapbooking or something. I clean some. I go to bed. On Sunday I wake up. I go to church. I have lunch with my parents or friends. I go home. I watch tv. I go to bed. I sleep. And then it all starts over again.

When did my life become so boring?! I used to hang out with friends all the time. I used to be a busy girl. Now, I'm not. And I don't feel like my life is doing much. I mean, before I started working here, I felt like I was wasting my life. Now I have a great job, in a christian environment, with people I love. But I still kind of feel like I'm wasting my life. Like there is so much more that God has planned for my life. And I'm so ready to get started with it! But apparently it's not God's timing yet.

So here I am. With a boring non-"blog worthy" life. Waiting for God's timing. Which has been my motto for several years now.

The Devil

Let me tell you people, the devil is out to kill. He loves to pile things on top of your head, just when you think it can't get any worse. That's his job! And he LOVES his job!

My friend's car was pretty much totaled yesterday. Last night, she had parked her car (that she got in March) in their garage (At the top of the very steep driveway) and then it proceeded to ROLL down the drive way, hit the corner of her mom's SUV, rolled across the street, in between 2 cars (missing them both by inches), in between 2 houses, hit the AC unit on one house, knocked it completely off the foundation, tore down the fence, and then stopped. Thank God no one was walking on the street or anything. It could have been SO much worse than it was. But at the same time, it was pretty bad. Now she is having to deal with the insurance company and all of their confusions, as well as figuring out what to do with her car.

See, my friend has been doing what God wants her to do lately. Her dad is going on a mission trip in 2 months and we have been raising money for that. She has been doing all kinds of things to raise money. Collecting cans, coins, etc. And it is exactly what God wants her to do. Which is why Satan is pouring out the crap on top of her head! Poor thing.

So my beautiful Forever Friend Katie got married this past Saturday. It was such a beautiful ceremony. I couldn't be happier for her.

I did the photo guestbook for Katie. I took pictures of everyone as they came in, and they wrote messages to the Bride and Groom on 3x5 cards colored in red, black, and silver. It's going to be really unique when the guestbook is done.

Lately, I haven’t really felt like blogging. I feel like I have nothing to blog about. Job is going good. Roommate is awesome. Sister is awesome. The rest of my family is good.

Tomorrow is the birthday of our country. No work. Fireworks, food, and fun. I’m proud to be an American. Like no one can believe. My heart bleeds red, white, and blue. My heart also breaks for my country. We’ve definitely seen better days.

So, I’m reading this book, “Someday My Prince Will Come”. It’s about this girl who wanted to be a princess. It’s a true story. The girl wrote the book about her life. It’s very interesting. But she talks about moving to London for graduate school. All the things she talks about in the book. And my friend who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. It really makes me want to live abroad for a while. Maybe for school. Maybe just for the experience. It would be SO much fun.

I’ve been thinking about writing a book. No clue what I want to write about. But I have characters running through my head all day long. Where do they come from? Where are they going? What do they do? I don’t know.

So this blog is totally random.

My roommate called me from home today saying that the plumbers need to cut through my sister’s wall to fix the OUTSIDE spout that anyone in the building can use. Um…NO. I called our landlord and she was mad. Because #1 they didn’t call her and she is the owner. #2 they didn’t schedule a time convenient for us. #3 she doesn’t understand why they have to cut through the inside wall to fix a spout on the outside.

Needless to say, she’s calling the association to “give them hell”. LOL! She’s so funny.

Ok children. I’m going to lunch. Lata!

Have you ever been one way and annoy your friends and family to death? How about completely changing and then have someone else act the same exact way and annoy you to death? Well, that's happening to me. It's so frustrating. But at the same time, its interesting to see how my friends and family felt when I was doing the same thing. Puts it all into perspective.

Just wanted to say that.

New Blogger!

So I'm new to Blogger. I've been blogging for years now, just not on this site. I've really been slacking on my blogs lately, but I'm really hoping to get back up to speed.

So. New news. I'm leaving for my vacation on TUESDAY!! I can't wait. Walt Disney World for 6 days/5 nights, then a Carnival cruise to the Bahamas for 4 days/3 nights! WOOHOO!! Oh and trust me. There will be hundreds of pictures when I get back! LOL! We will have like 4 cameras, at least.

Well, children. It is 2:27 am and I'm going to bed.

Praying for God's Will,

About Me

I'm just a southern gal, taking life one day at a time. I love spending time with my family, my friends, and my amazing husband!

I was born and raised in Nashville TN. Raised in the same church my whole life. I have an amazing family. The BEST friends a girl could ask for. And I am married to the love of my life. We got married on January 16th, 2010! I am so happy.

This blog is about my life. Sometimes it's exciting. Sometimes its dull. But it's all me. I hope you enjoy!

Much Love,
