About Me

I'm a girl who wears my heart on my sleeve and glasses on my face. I have my awkward moments, but I also have my awesome moments. I say y'all and I love it.

For she's a jolly good four year old..

My sweet red headed, curly haired, baby cousin Emmalyn Louise turned FOUR!
Where has the time gone?! It seems like just a few months ago I was putting the first diaper on her.
She brings so much joy into my life and I love her so much.

Here is the birthday girl who woke up at 6:37 A.M.
Me: "Emma, do you want chocolate chip pancakes?"
Birthday girl: "I want chicken and dumplings."
Me: "What? No, that's for supper. Do you want them or not?"
Birthday girl: " FINE. I'll have chocolate chip pancakes."
The prettiest four year old on the planet Earth.
She loved the attention (as seen above) but HEY, WHO DOESN'T?!
She did NOT make a wish, but that's okay I'm almost positive somebody will get her what she wants :).
As you can see the cupcakes were a success. And let's just say, I don't see a career in the cupcake business.

**I also apologize for the crappy camera quality. Only a few more months until I get the iPhone 4S!

Ladies, take notes.

Here are some DO'S and DON'TS for relationships.
NO, I didn't think of these on my own, but I do agree with them.

1. This should go without saying.
Love him for who he is!
2. Compromise for movies. Watch his favorite movies and he’ll give in for the movie you want to see.
3. Any time your guy gives you a compliment, don’t just roll your eyes and ruin the moment. He means it, and you should smile and say thank you!
(Maybe in return you could give him a kiss...on the cheek, of course ;D)
4. “Fine” or “whatever” is NOT an appropriate ending to a conversation. Only makes matters worse.
(YEP! I know that first hand.)
5. NEVER EVER kick them in the place below the belt. Even in a fight or argument, just don’t do it.
(Thank the Lord for my trustworthy man :D)
7. Listen to him. Even if it’s something you don’t want to hear.
Good communication is key.
8. Let your guy take pictures of you. He may not admit it, but that picture will probably be with him always. Even if you think it looks horrible.
9. Remind him that you appreciate all the sweet little things he does for you.
10. Communicate with him. Tell him directly what’s on your mind.
(I know this all too well...)
11. Let him know you’re on his side and that you support him and believe in him.
12. Forgive him. Forgiveness is a huge part of a relationship. You may not always want to do it, and he will definitely not always deserve it, but then again, we don’t necessarily always deserve forgiveness either.
