Day 7-Favorite movies

*Day 3 - Your first love:
This is going to sound cheesy and not what you wanna hear but its true - Ty is my first love. In high school, I had my first "infatuation" that lasted til about the end of freshman year. I thought I was in love but I wasn't. I had no clue what love was. I have dated around since then but I can honestly say that my whole heart is in love with Ty and I had no idea what it was until I fell in love with him. I can only imagine how in the world I can love him more than I do right now but I know I will fall more in love with him everyday that passes. Before him, my heart thought it was in love and so did I. But when you want the other person to be happy more than you want yourself to be happy, and when you would do ANYTHING for that person and when you put that person's needs and wants before yours, you know you are in love. It is something noone can describe, not even me. I literally cannot type the words that describe how I feel about that boy. I cannot wait to see what God holds in store for our future.
This was the night of our first kiss. He kissed me at 12:00 midnight -  New Years 2008- 2009. We had been "talking" for over a year and dating for 5 months before he kissed me. 

*Day 4: - Your Parents:
I don't even know where to start in describing my parents. They are the most amazing people I know. They have been married for 30 years and are a wonderful example of a Godly marriage. They taught my sisters and I to put God first and everything else will fall into place. When cheerleading was my LIFE in high school, they were at every game and every competition cheering me on. They have always been my biggest fan in life. They allowed me to go to my dream school for college and got through it (somehow). They celebrated with me when I got my first teaching job and cried with me when I lost it. They helped me through the grueling process of finding another job and have stood by me every step of this year. This school year has been rough and they have been there to encourage me, lift me up, and pray with me. They are the best parents I could ever ask for. They have given up so much to provide for us and I am so thankful for that. I could not ask for better role models. I am so thankful for them and only wish I can be half the parents they are. 
the day i graduated from the University of Alabama

*Day 5-Your siblings
ohh my sissys! I have 3 sisters and I'd like to think we are pretty close. :) My oldest sister is Christen:
This is Christen and her daughter Aubrey!
Christen has always been my 2nd mother. She is so very caring and loving and she used to do my hair on the school bus when she was in 5th grade and I was in Kindergarten. :) She has a big heart and was meant to be a momma. She is a great mom to Luke and Aubrey and new baby Sparks. God is the center of her world and I have always admired her. Sometimes I go to her before I go to my mom when I have a problem. She always calms me down and listens to me. She always has great advice too! :) She has a family now and sometimes I get jealous cuz I can't have all her attention anymore! She's got 2 kids wanting and needing her attention and a husband who is more important than silly ole me! :) It is hard to let go of a sister and let her have her own family and life. She is never too busy to talk to me though and I love that about her. Luke and Aubrey will both be crying and needing her and she will still sit on the phone with me a listen to my silly problems. You are the best and thank you for being my 2nd mommy!!! I love you sister!

Anna is next....ohhhh Anna....
Where do I start with Anna?? Anna is our rebel. She has a free spirit and will tell ya like it is. She doesn't care what people think about her and is a redneck at heart. She comes off as mean and acts like she doesn't care, but deep down she does. She has a HUGE heart. She has ALWAYS had my back. If someone messes with me, she will get them. And get them GOOD. She was in a very serious car accident her Senior year (my junior year) and was in the hospital for 3 weeks. After this accident, I never took any of my siblings for granted. God very easily could have taken her from us but He decided not to. He kept her here with us for a reason. She definitely has a purpose on this earth! We are so close in age, so we tend to fight alot, but I have ALWAYS looked up to her. I love you sister!

And las but not least, Jeri is my baby sister...
At Jeri's high school graduation
Jeri is a freshman at UGA but is an Auburn fan (typical of my sisters....). She has a HUGE heart and is so sweet. She has always been the quiet one because she never had the chance to talk with 3 older sisters. She keeps to herself and is always watching everyone. She pledged AXO at Georgia which makes me one happy sister. :) I cannot  believe she is a college girl and wish I could be with her all the time to make boys stop checking her out. She is one pretty girl and when I think about a boy checking her out, it makes me sick! She is a BABY!!! I vividly remember walking her to Kindergarten every single day. She MADE me. I thought I was too cool at the time but now look back on it and smile. She is so sweet, SO SMART, and loves the Lord with all her heart. She is the runner in our family and noone knows where she got that from. I am so glad I can call her my friend and not just my sister. I love you baby sister!

This is all 4 of us at Jeri's Graduation this May

*Day 6-A picture of something that makes you happy:

I LOVE sunsets. Ty's lakehouse always has the BEST sunsets. Everytime I see a sunset, I like to think my Uncle Stu painted it with God just for me. God is so amazing...words can't even describe how beautiful this picture is. Everytime I see a sunset, I always get a peace about everything in my life. How can you NOT believe in God?????????
