This is my life. My crazy wonderful life!
I love Jesus with all my heart and strive to be more like him every day.
I love my friends. They're pretty great!
I love chocolate milk.
Naked mole rats are my favorite.
I don't like cranberry sauce. Not even a little.
I love my gym.
I want to get married and have lots of kids one day.
I'm utterly pro-life.
I wear mismatching socks.
My pet peeve is being late.
That is all. For now.

Fun times with some great friends :)

Go God.

There are just sometimes in life where I have a complete God & I time. I realize how good God is … and I’m just overwhelmed by His grace.
Do you ever just think about Jesus dying on the cross for YOU?

Late night gold nuggets :)

I’m making carrot cake today! YES.

Oh hey.

I should probably mention that the Wilds emailed me today ASKING ME TO BE A COUNSELOR THIS SUMMER.
Yeah.
Freaking out with excitement.

I don’t even know how I feel about this.
Oh if I ever wanted a dog … SO CUTE,

Sometimes Mandisa is iffy for me. But this song . . . NO iffyness.

Grandmother!

Today Grandmother (my great grandma) turns 94. So I’m driving through snow to go see her. :) Talk about a legacy she has left!
She must have honored her parents ;)

A few of my faves. Late night web cam pictures with the sis. :) I just don’t feel like your life can be complete without one.

“This year is gonna be different. I can feel it.”

I really really like the one farthest to the left … I just really like this style. :)

The mood.

I was just in the mood to look at wedding dresses today. I drooled, I wondered, I was even disgusted at one point (because of the immodesty and absolute UGLINESS of some of the ones I saw). As I was looking at these wedding dresses I couldn’t help but sigh and wonder … I am only 20. I get it, but let’s just be honest, I’m like 30 at heart. I’ve been doing wifely and mom things since I was pretty much old enough to hold a spatula and sort laundry. I’m just domestic like that. It’s my nature. AndI really do want to get married! But the thing I learned was not “God’s writing my love story” or “I just need to wait and God will bless me”. Nope! I just felt content with where God has me now. I don’t need to wait around for God to bless me; He already is and has! And yes, maybe he does have a man for me- that won’t be intimidated by my loyalty and committed nature or even my extreme weirdness and occasional awkward moments- Haha! But I realized that if singleness is what God has for me, then I’d better learn to embrace it and learn all I can from it. No matter what phase of life God has me in I need to be thankful and I need to be content.

P.S. I’m going to visit my cousins on Friday and I’m so SO excited! I’m surprising Levi for his birthday =) He’s gonna love it.

“The greatest beauty tip:
For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her hands through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed, never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; one for helping yourself, and the other for helping others. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”

Baha is all I can say.
