The weekend . . .

Okay so I didn't do anything extravagant but I had a good weekend.  Friday night I went to El Mazatlan with some friends from work.  We had a blast just talking and laughing for three and a half hours.  I'm pretty sure the staff thought we were going to bring out pillows and blankets and spend the night.  Saturday, I got up early and headed to Lexington.  I rode up with my brother (Nick) and sister-in-law Brooke.  It was beautiful and the sun was so nice to see so the trip up and back was nice.  We got to visit (quickly) with John's family for a while and then we went over to Rupp Arena and got some UK paraphenelia.  Conner got to go inside and see some of the "big trucks" for a truck pull that was going to be held that night.  Actually, what happened was that Nick and John talked a security guard into letting them in so that "Conner could see inside Rupp Arena."  Now that is funny!  Anyway, we came back home and watched the UK game and screamed at the TV like a bunch of idiots!  Then today we had Church and it was a great service!  Good weekend, but I think I am coming down with something . . . SPRING FEVER!

Valentine's Eve

Hello friends!  So, it's Valentine's Eve and since I don't have a special guy in my life right now I've decided to write about other special "Valetine's" that I do have.  First of all, there is my Mom.  Now I realize that all women can not say that they have a good relationship or any relationship with their Mother so I know that I am truly blessed. Now don't get me wrong, we have had our struggles, I'm sure Mom would say that "stuggle" is putting it mildly. When I was younger there were times that I didn't think that she understood me or loved me or could see where I was coming from.  Now that I'm older, I can not imagine if she hadn't been in my life. She has loved me, prayed for me, cried with me, encouraged me, and been there for me through some very tough times.  She has sacrificed herself time after time for my happiness and well-being.  Then there is my step-dad, John.  They have been married almost 18 years, no doubt it was hard for him to take on an extra teenager and child (I was 14 and Nick was 11).  He has always loved me, supported me, taken care of me, helped fix my cars, helped me buy cars, been my Mr. Fix-it, and to many other things to count.  Then there are my brothers, just like any other siblings we have fought and not always seen eye to eye. Now that we are all three adults, I think we can see what's important in life are people not things.  Then there is extended family, my Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Cousins-in-laws, etc. are the best!  Jess and I laugh about it all the time but we KNOW that our family is the greatest!  Now when we are all together it is loud and at times chaotic but we all truly love being together and I wouldn't trade those times for any amount of money in the world.  Then there is my sister-in-law whom I love very much and enjoy spending time with because I need an extra girl on my side!  She has brought the two sweetest boys into my life and made me an official Aunt.  And last but definitely not least are my girlfriends,  they have laughed with me (or at me), let me cry, and supported me when I didn't know what to do.  So overall, even though these "Valentine's" may not be the conventional type, I have so many people that I love and who love me that I realize that this holiday means a lot more than I give it credit for.  Happy Valentine's Day everybody!  I love you.

My First Post

Okay so I'm new to this blogging thing. I love to read Jessica's, Lesley's, Carol's, Allie's, etc. My life is definitely much different than theirs.

As most of you know, I am single. 32 and single. It used to bother me and sometimes it still does. There are days where I look at myself in the mirror and say "Why are you still single? What's wrong with you?" Those days are fewer and farther between now than they use to be but every once in a while they sneak in.

I work for Dr. Eli Jackson and Dr. Brad Graham in Bowling Green. I have an AWESOME family, a great group of friends, and I love my job.

I thought that blogging might be cathartic so watch out folks - some days could be very wordy. See you soon.
