thought of the day. again.

don't use chapstick after its been out in the sun. even if it looks like its just fine. don't do it.

it's gross.

I want to make a snippet of a [public] love note, since it is still father's day & because I love him. There are so many reasons why I desperately need, care for, and love my dad. He is providing in every way possible. He loves me and I know it full well. And he encourages both my sisters and I in our relationships with the Lord and that is what I am most thankful for. He is responsible and calm. He is understanding and helpful. He usually has answers for all of my questions. I know that the number of solid relationships between father and child, or even existing ones at that, can seem rare. So tonight, and other nights, I am so very thankful to have a father. And one that loves and cares for me. I couldn't be at the point in my life (whether physically, emotionally, spiritually, educationally) that I am at without him. Thank you for being a father who spurs us on with our relationship with our heavenly Father.

And thanks for buying me dinner tonight :)

a baby check

the past few nights my two nieces have been spending the night over here at the house. They are so precious and such joys to be around. Last night my parents sent my almost three-year-old girlfriend to give me a check. She hopped (when I say hopped I mean she walk/ran/skipped the way that little ones do) in the kitchen holding out a little folded piece of paper and said,

'here lolo, here's your chick.'

me: 'my chick? Oh my check (it was a check) thank you big girl.'

her: 'you're welcome. it's a baby chick.'

we both went into the room where my parents were...

me: 'hey thanks for my chick.'

parents: 'your chick?'

her: 'I want a marshmallow. Grandma, can I have a chick?'

parents: 'a chick?'

me: 'I think she's wanting a peep.'

her: 'A PEEP'

Seeing as how it was far past easter, they didn't have any of those. so a slight meltdown happened but then she forgot about it. It was just a funny moment for myself and it might not make sense but it was worth sharing....

have a great thursday!

thought of the day.

I thrive on long-sleeved t shirts. even in the summer. I just need to say that.

more blogging to come!

Hello June!

Good mid morning, almost afternoon!

Yesterday, I got to use my picky, particular, anal hand at trimming a room with paint while my best friend powered through painting all of the walls herself. I'm such a huge help. Sorry.

Today, I just want to give you a little piece of this......

Jillian Edwards.

My friend and baylor alum, mer, introduced me to her voice and I absolutely love it. She went/goes to Baylor and I believe is now in Nashville for the summer, recording another album. get it girl.

Her songs really make you relax and feel so chill. perfect for summer. or spring. or fall and winter. love it.

You can find her on itunes everyone. Go on now. Check it out.

This week, my wonderful friends Jaime and Grant will be getting married. Today is there rehearsal and friday is the big, gigantic day. I am so excited for you two and I know you've been waiting for this for a while. I'm so glad I get to be apart of it.
