Hey, y'all. I know, I know... I have been a total slacker around here. I had a 4 day weekend this weekend and I spent all 4 days at the pool. Relaxing and exhausting all at the same time. I got a great little, almost brownish, might be a tan going on. This white girl needed some serious color! ANDDD I got to hang out with one of my bests!!! We really had a blast and it was a much needed mini vacay in the back yard. 

On Sunday, my sweet, wild, hilarious, independent niece turned 2! I seriously cannot believe how fast time goes by when you are watching little ones grow up. She is one of the funniest kids I have ever know... Not to mention she's incredibly adorable! I am so thankful for her and I couldn't be happier that God chose me to be her Aunt!!

I watched an absolutely incredible movie this weekend. The Impossible. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend you do. Wonderful story about a family that were vacationing in Thailand when it was hit by the tsunami. It's one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.

For those who prayed for my uncle, thank you! He is still in the hospital, but he is doing so much better. They will be moving him to a rehab center today or tomorrow. Laying in a bed for four months, without moving, is hard on the body. We just want him to be well again!

Hopefully you all had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend!

Something You Love About Yourself.

Something you love about yourself.

This seems like a great way to follow Day 1. Todays truth is something you love about yourself. This one is
pretty easy for me... I love that I am me. I love that no matter who I am around or where I go, I'm myself. I'm outgoing, funny, kind and encouraging. I love that I have really grown to love myself over the last year. I love that I have learned that it's okay if everyone else doesn't love/like me, too. They don't have to. This world is constantly trying to mold us into stereotypes. Everyday, every where we go, someone is trying to change us. I love that I know who God created me to be and I don't have to stray from that or wonder "Who am I?" Don't get me wrong, I have some days that I struggle with who I am. I think we all do. And, I have some days that I wonder where I am going next... But because I know who I am, I know that my God will make a way for me. I might not always know what my purpose is, but I know what's in my heart. When I keep my eyes on him, the things of this world cannot deter me or change my heart in any way. Sure it's easier said then done sometimes, but I do my best. This world also wants to make us feel like we aren't enough just as we are.  That we can't do or be whatever we want to be/do. We are all enough in our own way. Today, I am thankful that I am who I am. Even if I am a little feisty, a little loud, and maybe a little over the top sometimes =)

Happy Tuesday, Y'all!

Silver Linings Playbook.

It's Thursday, and that means it's my last day of the work week. Well, kinda. I have to work Saturday...And Sunday Morning... But whatevs. My point is that I don't have to wake up early tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I will sleep most of the day... I might roll out of bed to have lunch at some point, you just never can tell.

I have never written about a movie... but I just had to write about this one... I FINALLY watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. It was fantastic. I laughed and cried and laughed and cried. It was probably one of the best movies I have seen in years. I really wish I had seen it in the theater. I could totally relate to both of them on so many levels. I mean, lets be honest, we are all a little crazy in our own way, and everyone handles situations differently. As my dad says "It takes all kinds of folks to make this world go 'round." 

I think the best part of the whole movie, for me, was that they were both looking for something... they thought they knew what it was, but they didn't. Until it was right in front of them. They are both a little crazy...and they found someone who loved their kind of crazy, and loved them even though they were a little crazy. They both spent so much time fighting their own inner demons, and I think we all have some of those. The good, the bad, take it as it comes, would rather be crazy with you, than crazy without you kind of love. It gives me hope that there is "Someone" for everyone. Inspirational to say the least.
