Let's see....Here are three really great things that have happened since I last wrote:
This is my awesome family. We decided to surprise my mom and dress "tacky" for Christmas. The expressions on most of their faces pretty much sums up the multi-personalities of my family! My step-sister and her boyfriend are posing for prom. My brother (on the far right) clearly hates that we put him in denim-on-denim and an elf hat. And my little step-brother is probably making some sarcastic remark. Christmas is my favorite holiday. It's the time of the year when I wear out "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and all songs on the "Mariah Carey Christmas" CD. Tradition is HUGE in my mom's side of the family. We've done nearly everything the exact same since my mom was a kid... now there's just a lot more of us! It truly is "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year"!!
I finally re-did my office..err..junk room! After not one, two, or even three, but FIVE coats of yellow paint, I finally could organize all of my craft supplies and contain all of my squirrels and acorns in one room! I got a Cricut for Christmas and needed an awesome place to put it! Hey, it's not as fantastic as the ones you see on Pinterest, but it's my haven!
This next picture just puts a smile on my face. Here's the background: my mom and I lived in Florida for a short time when she was doing her externship in school. I was in 1st-2nd grade where we lived in an apartment complex and met some really great friends. When we left, our friends also left and moved to Alaska! Yes, from Florida back to Alaska (where they're from). Well, we hadn't seen each other in EIGHTEEN years, but my mom found them on Facebook. Oddly enough, not long after they befriended each other on the book, they messaged my mom and told her they were coming to Kentucky! They came to Bowling Green for a week because they have family here and asked if we wanted to meet for breakfast. Of course we did!! J was my best friend in grade school..and about the only friend I remember from back in the day. We moved a lot when I was younger because of my mom being in school, and I didn't really have time to establish close friends before it was time to leave again. But this family---I could never forget! It's amazing how time has changed. J now has a family of her own! Needless to say, it was AMAZING to see them! I just hope we don't wait another 18 years to see each other again!
So that's what I've been up to. Now that the school year is coming to a close, maybe I'll actually have more time to post more often!
Be Back Soon!
