Christmas, Wine, and Early Bedtimes

Hello all! Sorry for my absence these last couple of days, I've been so busy with school! Hope everyone is doing fabulous! :) Well, since I have so much random stuff to post, I'm thinking flower bullets will do the trick ;)

  • Have a mentioned how much I am IN LOVE with the holidays?? Christmas tree is up and decorations are hung and let me tell ya, I love it!! Its been so cold here, my favorite thing to do is light the fire, grab a blanket and my puppy, and read or watch movies :)
  • My boyfriend & I have started a whole "eating healthy jazz." Right before the holidays you ask?! Ya, we're crazy but y'all...i have gained about 15 lbs in about 3 years and it is time to get it off! WHY NOT start now, right? Moving on...
  • My church is doing this thing called "Crazy Love Christmas" where a group gets assigned a family that could use some extra help this year. SO, of course I gather a group in less than 24 hrs and start on my mission to help someone. Well, funny thing is I really prayed about this, and I knew I would be blessed with a family that would make an impact on my life in such a good way. SO, on MY BIRTHDAY, our "team coach" called and told me this family that had been nominated could really use a little help. Of course I bawled my eyes out. I called all my team members so we could get this ball a-Rollin! Its been a challenge, but such a blessing...and so I'm asking all of y'all to say a little prayer for us, and the family. I know we can do it, but prayer is a powerful thing people!
  • I went out with my girls the other night to enjoy some wine, and it was SO much fun! I just don't think I can ever get enough of their laughter, great stories, fun gossip, and just great times all around. They're awesome.
  • WHY wont this thing let me add pictures?!?! :(

Well, I guess that's all I got right now, last night I was in bed by 9:30 (which hasn't happened in MONTHS) and it was so amazing waking up this morning! So I'm going to try and get everything done to make it that early tonight :) I know, what a loser, huh?! ha! Plus I look forward to church so much that everyone knows if you go to sleep, it will get here faster. ;) Happy Sunday to everyone tomorrow!

Its the most wonderful time of the year!!

Its December 1st, and I think you all know what that means...its snowing in Lubbock!! I love me some nice white snow, but the iced roads? Not so much. On my way to school this morning, I saw 2 wrecks, and if any of y'all know me at all, you know my forte is NOT driving in rain, snow, ice, sleet or any other kind of weather besides sunshine. But, needless to say, I'm home safe and sound cuddled up with my sweet baby, Belle (she loves cuddling, y'all!)

Since I just started "blogging" I thought I would tell y'all a little bit about myself :)

- Most importantly, God is my # 1. My relationship with Him has grown so much over the past year, and I have to say my life hasn't been the same since.

- I was born and raised in Alpine, Texas; a very small town (population 7,000) in WEST Texas, so I'm definitely your small town girl

- I moved to Lubbock 3 years ago in January to attend college

- My family--just plain amazing. 'Nuff said

- My boyfriend? Well, we have been in school together since 4th grade, he FINALLY flirted with me in 8th grade...and well, the rest is history ;) No, we're not married...but when the time is right it will be the best day of my life

- I just turned 23 and feel so old

- I love, love, love babies and CAN NOT WAIT to have children. I probably sound crazy, but I have wanted a baby since I was oh, probably 5 years old (and no I'm not kidding)

- I have a few friends with blogs, and a few that are SO going to make fun of me for doing this, but its OK I love 'em anyways :)

I hope y'all enjoy reading my blog! I can ramble, so sorry if its boring :)
