                   Don't forget to go link up with Jamie today!

I'm loving.. all my new books I got this past weekend!  Hillary took me to the mother load of books! While I was VERY overwhelmed at first, it was love.  LOVE LOVE LOVE. 
I cannot wait to go back again! 

Just a snapshot of them sitting on the shelf, waiting on me.. haha!
I'm loving.. that I got to spend some quality time with my best friends.  I'm blessed beyond belief that I can say I still have the same friends as I did when I was a kid.  There isn't a lot of people that can say that and I'm PROUD to be one! 

I'm loving.. that I seriously have the best man ever in my life.  Hands down, he melts my heart!

I'm loving.. that it is already Wednesday... Even though I had Monday off work, boy I made up for it yesterday.  WHEW.........

I'm loving... my sweet niece, Jenna.  She spent Sunday night with me and we had a good ole time playing, and going to Tupelo shopping!  Love that kid!

I'm loving.. my furbabies, even though I have failed to spot light them on this blog recently.

I'm loving.. LIFE! :)

What are YOU loving today??  

Happy Friday!

Today..

Comments (1)

It's Thursday... and I'm thinking...

I know, I know...

But seriously, I'm thinking about how much has changed in the last year in my life.  A year ago I was about to go to Gulf Shores with Tammy, Bridgett, & Landin.  My love life was less than desirable.  I was continuously losing self-esteem, and I just plain out wasn't happy with my life for the most part.

And now here I am today with the opposite of that.  Complete opposite.  Ironically, I'm meeting up with Tammy on Monday to catch up and have some good food somewhere.  (This is the longest we've went without seeing each other since we became bff). And as far as my love life, well, I don't really have to tell you how happy I am.  I think you all know.

In fact, let's just say I got the most awesome text yesterday from B's sister.  She told me I needed to go look at his wall.  So I did, and she had written the sweetest message on there about how she is glad he brought me into their family.  So I text her and told her thanks and asked her where all this had came from.  She said she was just so happy to see that I make him happy and he makes me happy.  It meant a lot to know that someone outside of us can really see it. 

That it is not fake in the least.  Like I've said, he is my once in a lifetime love.

B isn't the only good thing that's happened in the last year.  I've had the opportunity to get to know my best friends even better.  Sometimes when you go through challenges in your life you get to face things from different angles and hear people's stories and opinions. 

I learned a lot from my friends in this last year.  And learned who my friends are.  And I've also made some new friends who I already hold dear to my heart.

And let's not forget the weddings, the babies, & the upcoming events! 

Life is just so good and God is SO great to be bringing me into a world I knew existed but was just stuck in a rut and couldn't find my way to.

So, today I'm thinking... thinking about life and just how sweet it really is.

                It's Wednesday!!!  Don't forget to go link up with Jamie!

I'm loving...

Teen Mom 2 Finale.  Yes, I'm 27 years old and watch this show.  I like it.  And so does B.  It's our Tuesday night show and now I don't know what we are going to do without it on. 
But let me make some comments on each of these ladies before I move on:
Kaitlyn- You screwed up, honey.  Not that I liked Jordan much anyway, but REALLY!!? Sleep with Joe again, ?!  Honey...
Janelle- You have been the crazy nut case the whole time and yet you are the only smart one now.  Glad to see you go to rehab, although I doubt it lasts.  You're a heifer... naturally.
Leah- Gosh, where to even begin?  You are my fave storyline, but you are a train wreck.  You have a good man in your life (who yes, sometimes is a jerk to you, but he's a man..) and yet you go and have sex with Robbie.  And then want to cry that Corey is doing you wrong.  Talk to Janelle, you are now a heifer too.
Chelsea-  Oh, girl.  If only I could have a heart-to-heart with you.  You are a disater waiting to happen.  You need to leave Adam alone and run as fast as you can.  I've seen his kind.  I've dated his kind.  His kind don't change and if you don't run, he will change you. 

K, moving on! ;)

I'm loving...
that I get to spend this weekend with some of my lovely ladies! 

I'm loving..
That one of my best friends became a Mrs. yesterday!!!!!!!! Mert, I'm SOOOO happy for you and Bill!!!!!!!!!!  And I can't wait to see you this weekend!!!

I'm loving...

This man, always and forever.

Happy Wednesday!!!!!!!

My Love Day.

So, I know some of you (or all of you) might be tired of hearing me brag on B by now, BUT I'm going to again.. so just close on out if you don't wanna read. :)

Valentine's has always been not so far up on my list of favorite days.  I've always been single and hated the day.  As if it isn't bad enough every other day of the year to know you are "left behind" isn't enough, then you have to face the day that is pops up in your face all day long.

I've been there.  Done that.  TOO MANY TIMES.

But this year was completely different.  I got to spend the day/night with the love of my life. 

I got off work early and met him at my house.  We had plans to go to eat and try and beat the crowds there.  Imagine my surprise when I got home and my sweet man had done took care of the dogs for me so I'd have one less thing to do before we left home.

Gosh, I love him so much.

We got to Olive Garden and had a fabulous meal.  It didn't take long to wait and our server was great!  We also had some free entertainment sitting beside us, ha!

After we left there we headed over to the mall where my sweetie bought me the first book of the Hunger Games (because I wouldn't let him buy me all three) and then he got me a new wallet.  All this on top of my card, chocolates, and The Vow book that was already at my house.


And on top of that stunt he pulled yesterday.   What an amazing man and what an amazing first Valentine's together. 


He melts my heart, but luckily he is always there to scoop me back up on my feet!

I love you Brian! :)

The Sweetest..

How does one man continue to amaze me day after day?

I don't know, but he sure does.

B came over to see me last night and we had a remarkable night.  I think it would be safe to say if you were watching us, you would be able to tell we were in love.  And oh are we..

This morning I woke up to my sweetie putting the sweetest message on Facebook for me.. and then some very sweet texting.

And he kept saying he was excited.  I told him I was too, but I thought we were meaning the same thing.  I was referring to our date night tonight, and he was referring to something else...



That little stinker had it planned all along!  Now, while these are beautiful, they are extra special...  You see, there are white roses in there.. and a white teddy bear...

Well my man is one in a million and he thought this out.  The reasoning for the white is because his last name is White and he said will be "our" last name (one day). 

I told you he is sweet. 

I can't wait to see what tonight holds.  I just can't wait to spend some good time with my sweetie and show him off to the world tonight. 

Oh, and I was contacted about submitting our love story on a website, and I did so.  If you are interested then take a peek here.

Love is in the air around me... :)

HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Inspired.

This has been SUCH an eye-opening weekend for me.  I have to admit that I was in a less than happy mood last week about a lot of things.  That that really do not matter in the large scheme of things.  

The point is, when you've got good people in your life, whether that be by friendship, family, or relationship, you need to cherish every single moment with those people.   It can all be taken away in a heartbeat.  

A group of us girls went and watched The Vow Sunday afternoon.  Can we say hooooooooooooooooooooooot... Channing Tatum, I mean :)  But it really was a good movie.  I enjoyed it and was very happy with what it done for me, personally.  I've been battling some ugly thoughts in my mind.  I think at some point every girl does that to themselves, but what I have learned from the last week is to stop and smell the roses rather than staying bound up with fear and anger.  

I've been hard to deal with lately (Ask B if you don't believe me) but it has all came to a stop.  It was just a very hard week and I think my emotions and hormonal issues just got the best of me and I let it come into my life.

I was mean to B and I hate myself for that, but it's part of a learning experience.  I'm just thankful to have a man that allows me to go nuts and still want to be with me at the end of it.  I've said it a million times before and I will again, he is just unlike any man I've ever known.  God sure knew what he was doing when he placed this gorgeous man in my life.  

And then last night I went and listend to Ron Price speak at church.  For those of you who don't know who that is, check out this link to help catch you up.   First of all, all I can tell you is wow.  The courage it must have took to stand before a crowd as large as we had there last night must have been frightening.  But he took that stand and he spoke on his wife's behalf.  I never knew her personally, nor him, but you could feel the love he had for his wife just in his words.   

He discussed the events of that night and how life has changed since then and it just let me to thinking a lot about how I've acted lately too.  And I think the thing that really stood out to me was him mentioning Valentine's Day approaching and how he wouldn't be able to see his Valentine this year.  

What if tonight, tomorrow, this very next minute, was your last moments alive with those you love- would they know it? To me I can apply it to be B and me.  We didn't find each other early in life, we are 27 and 28 years old.  We have lost a good part of our lives that could have been spent together and while yes I know that all too happened for a reason.  It just means that we have to make the most of the time we DO have together.  The little fights over things that don't matter the next day, the taking our anger out on each other, the past creeping its way into our current lives.  It all is just non-sense.  

What we need to do is love one another, pray for one another, and be there for the good times AND the bad, but treat each other with respect and handle the issues that will arise and continue the good relationship we have.

Like I said, I had a bad week last week and it really took a toll on me more than I think I let anyone know.  But that's the past.  I needed to see that movie and hear Ron speak.  It's all in God's timing for us to see and hear things and it was no accident for either of those and me yesterday. 

So, ladies, just take a minute and think it over.  If you lost your Valentine right now, would you have regrets?

Our Love Story

Comments (1)

                 

I've been seeing this on several blogs and thought I'd join in on all the fun!!!

How long have you and your significant other been together?
B and I have been together since Sept. 17th, 2011. 

How did you meet? {What's your "love" story?}
Funny you'd ask.   We actually met via Facebook, as crazy as that sounds.  I normally don't accept people I don't know when they send requests, but when he sent the one to me I accepted it.  For some reason, I remembered his name from when we were kids growing up.  I have no idea WHY I remembered his name except for the fact that he has the same name as a country singer, HA!  But anyway, I accepted the request, but didn't have time to "stalk him" yet. haha!  I was packing for my trip for Gatlinburg the next day.  I just looked at his pictures and thought he was a hottie and was okay with accepting him. 
That's the last I thought of it until he started "liking" my things on Facebook and then messaged me to ask if I was feeling better when I had posted about being sick.
We then started talking more and more (via Facebook still) and starting figuring out we had danced around each other our whole lives, but somehow never met.  (Fate, I believe..)
Then we started texting & calling.. and the rest is history being made.. =)

We fell hard and we fell fast.  But this is the man that holds all the qualites I've waited my whole life for. 

I knew the first minute we "met" in real life that this was it for me. 
 My heart was stolen.

 If married, how long have you been married?
We aren't.   

If you are married, where did you get married at? Big or small wedding? 
We aren't married, but I do plan on marrying him one day.  And when we do, it will be a smaller, intimate wedding. 

Do you have any nick-names that you call one another? 
I call him "B" since his name begins with a B, and of course he is babe, sweetie, honey, baby, etc.  All the normals.  He calls me babe, sweet thing, and babygirl.  (Love it!) 


Name 3 things you love most about your honey.
He is so affectionate & not afraid to show it.
He is one of the sweetest & caring people I've EVER met in my life.
He is tall, handsome, and MINE! :)



The Proposal
I can't wait!


Is he a flowers and teddy bear kind of guy for v-day, or strawberries, champagne, and rose petals?
Flowers & teddy bear.. BUT, I told him I want some chocolate and new book, haha. What can I say?  I'm weird.


Are you a sunset dinner on the beach kind of girl, or pop a movie in and relax on the couch?
Totally movie in and relax.  We are both the same way.... although... a dinner on the beach can be nice too I'd imagine.. (Sweetie, if you are reading this- take notes- HA!.)

Tell us one thing you'd like to do with your significant one day. If you could do anything? Go anywhere?
This is a hard one.  If we could do ANYTHING, then I'd love for us to take a few months off and just travel to some beauitful places and let our relationship grow while we experience life and each other in different places. 


Tell us what you plan on doing on this Valentine's Day.
We will go out to eat I'm sure and then probably chill at the house.  I've done mentioned we are low-key people!


Are you asking for anything this Valentine's day?
Book & chocolate :)


Give us one piece of advice of keeping a relationship strong and full of love.
Keep the communication lines open, at all times.  If you are hurt, upset, sad, etc.. then talk it out then.  Don't let it build and then explode.  Keep your partner's feelings in your own heart at all times.

Show us a picture of what love means to you.

B, you are absolutely the man of my dreams and every day I thank God that He allowed you to walk into my life when you did.  I was experiencing a low point and you showed me what real, true love is all about for the first time in my life.  I am proud to stand by your side and hope to experience the rest of our lives with you at my side.  You are my best friend, lover, and soulmate.  Thank you for loving me as much as I love you.   - K.

The girl who fell off the face of the planet again..

I have a major hold up in the House Tour.. I am trying to get to where I can take some new pictures with the new camera B got me for Christmas and show you here instead of using my iPhone. BUT, right now I'm computer less and I can't get them uploaded here at work. So I'm at a major standstill.

I sorries..


But in the meantime I need to do something that holds me accountable on here. My blogging skills suck majorly.

So I saw this on a few blogs and think it will be at least something I'm posting.. So here goes nothing. Oh, and I'm a few dates late.. so I gotta play catch-up until I'm there with the rest of you peoples! :)

Day one- My View Today.
Yes, that's my drive thru window view..

Are you jealous yet?

Day Two- Words.

My lovely magnet that Cassie got me! =)  I have it hanging at work and read it every.single.day.  Because it is SO true.
Day Three- Hands.

Obviously I had to do "hand" instead of hands.. I can't take my own hands picture.. But :) Here is my hand... and that ring is one I wear every single day.  My mom gave it to me about 6 years ago. 

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!
