12/23/12

Dear Parker,
Today is your birthday! you're 14! Yay! You are one of the best friends I've ever had, and I love you so much! you're the one that I can talk to on the phone at almost 11:00 at night, tell all my little problems to, cry with, laugh with, get much needed advice from, email back and forth 24/7, talk about our "boy problems", get in an argument about who's prettier (hehe!), tell all my secrets to, tell you i love you in EVERY email i send you, and just be myself with.
You are SO beautiful... Inside AND out! And even though I've never even met you in "real life",  I 'm hoping and praying that I will soon! But i know that I will someday! I'm SO looking forward to that day... when we can run up to eachother and hug eachother until we can't breath... haha :)
I love you SO much, and I hope you have the best birthday EVER!!




Love you, babe :)

Hey guys!

Y'all have prooobably when wondering why I haven't posted in awhile... I guess i don't really have a legitimate reason, i just haven't had the inspiration, or even time, really. But anyways, I thought i'd start with catching up with pictures!

Yesterday we met.......

None but Gabby Douglas! Unless you guys don't know who she is (haha), she is the world famous Gold-medal, gymnast Olympian! She was having a book-signing at LifeWay, for her newest book "Grace, Gold and Glory". We waited in line on the street for about 2 hours before getting to meet her, but it was worth it! She was really nice!  And i highly recommend getting her book... it's awesome.
 
And a few weeks ago, we put up our Christmas tree!
 
It was so fun. We decorated the tree, then had Christmas cookies, and watched cheesy Hallmark love movies. My favorite :) What is everyone's favorite Christmas movie?
I don't know why, but this year I haven't been as excited as I usually am about Christmas. I don't know what it is. There have been a few things that have happened that have kinda helped nurture it. But I'm trying to change that. Maybe it's partly because almost everyone in my family has had whooping cough for a few months, or maybe because it hasn't snowed, or something.
 I've almost finished all my Christmas shopping, but now i'm trying to rush and get it all finished before Christmas!
 
My favorite Christmas song right now is This is Christmas by Kutless... I absolutley love this song! You can listen to it here :)
 
~~~
 
Right now this is my favorite cover by Anthem Lights... Y'all have got to listen to it! I think it's WAY better then Justin's version...but that's just my opinion ;)
 
Aaaand, my BEAUTIFUL, dearest friend, Parker, tagged me in this quiz, so here goes!
 
1) What is my favorite winter nail color? Frosty blue :)
2) What is my favorite winter lip product? umm, right now I have Jolly Rancher lip balm, and i like that... haha!
3) Most worn winter piece? Skinny jeans and boots! Or my hoodies :)
4) Most worn winter accessory? Scarves
5) Favorite winter beverage? Tea or hot chocolate!
6) All time favorite Holiday movie? Hehe, i like Charlie Brown too, Parker, but I think it would be A Princess for Christmas
7) Favorite Holiday song? Santa Baby, or Jingle Bell Rock!
8) Favorite holiday candy? Candy canes!
 
And I tag... Lauricia, KayleeBeth and Noelle :) And ANYONE else who wants to be tagged, PLEASE comment and tell me!
 
Have a great day! Merry Christmas!

Hey guys!

I just wanted to quickly post a clip from the show Kickin It that i thought was really funny! Haha. I watched it on tv, and thought i was hilarious (yes, i'm weird), then i showed it to my mom and sister, and as i laughed my head off, they looked at me like i'm crazy. So,  i hope that at least you guys find it funny! Enjoy :)

Hey guys!

So sorry i haven't posted in a million years! oh goodness! buuut, all i'm gonna say is i wasn't physically able to get on the computer ;)

But anyways, a lot has happened since I last posted! First of all, even though i did do a post after my birthday, i didn't really talk about it! First of all, thank you all SO much for all the sweet birthday wishes! Love you guys so much... you're the best :) I had a great birthday :)
And I hope everyone had a HAPPY Thanksgiving! We did. Even though we didn't celebrate with family, we still had a great time with our family... haha :)

Aaaand, in-between my last post and today, we've gone Christmas shopping, had slumber parties, hot chocolate, stayed up late around our wood stove watching cheesy Hallmark love movies (us girls looove those!), listened to Christmas music...

At youth group, i heard this song by the Robbie Seay Band. I reallly liked it...i hope you all like it too!

 
 
The message that they were giving at Youth, is that, Salvation, and exepting Jesus in your life, is a free choice. He's just waiting at the door...knocking...waiting for an answer. We're not forced to accept Jesus... but why would we choose not to except the biggest, most glorious gift that was ever offered us?  Because the good news is, God is always ready to except us! He's ready to take a broken, hurting sinner, and bring them up to his peirced side... holding out his scarred hands... to grasp you in his arms. To take all your brokeness, and hurting, and stains, and make you as clean, and white as snow. To make you his bride, kiss you, and love you till your heart bursts. To be your friend... a true friend... that will stay by your side forever, and when you aren't always loyal to Him, He's always ready to accept you again.
 
Go on up to the mountain of mercy
To the crimson perpetual tide
Kneel down on the shore
Be thirsty no more
Go under and be purified
Follow Christ to the holy mountain
Sinner sorry and wrecked by the fall
Cleanse your heart and your soul
In the fountain that flows
For you and for me and for all

At the wonderful, tragic, mysterious tree
On that beautiful, scandalous night you and me
Were atoned by His blood and forever washed white
On that beautiful, scandalous night

On the hillside, you will be delivered
At the foot of the cross justified
And your spirit restored
By the river that pours
From our blessed Savior's side
~~~
