My Tribe.

These five following ladies are what I like to call "my tribe".  They raise me up when I am down, love me when I want to hide myself away. I love them like my long lost sisters from different misters. 

Lora from Heart of Life, she's basically the big sister I always wanted but never had. The one I go to when I need a good pep talk or for sound advice. Love her!

Rachael from the Rachael Way is my sparkly unicorn spirit animal. I love this girl to pieces & know that once she's back in the states we will meet! 

Morgan from True Life of KMK. Morgan's love of Jesus & her family & her adorable pup Tank inspire me daily & she's also always been SO sweet to me. 

Amanda from Keeping up with the Haneys. Her passion for not only her career, but her family & friends is one I admire. She's another one I'd consider like an older sister. Plus, she loves Aaron Watson as much as I do. 

Ashley from Ashley Lately. I just want to be her when I grow up. She loves Jesus, her family & country music just as much as I do and she's someone I definitely look up to! 

So who are a few of your faves?

Fall favorites

It's almost 11 and I'm just now posting, I worked today til 4 and then came home and napped and deep cleaned and everyone knows, when you get in the cleaning mood, you don't let anything break it.

Here are just a few of my favorite fall things:

-pretty colors on the leaves. 

-jumping in said leaves, usually Mady and I will jump in a few piles between our house and my grandparents house, but now that we're both out of the house, I'm not sure who's gonna jump with me.  

-cooler temps

-hoodies being acceptable without being questioned "aren't you hot in that?" um, no, I'm still cold actually.  

-pumpkin pie

-fall TV starting back up.

-hockey season is right around the corner

-NASCAR is just wrapping up and it's so fun to watch the championship play out. 



What's one of your favorite things about fall?

Day of My Life.

You'd think that after looking over the blogtember list as many times as I have, I would remember to take pictures of my day, but alas, I did not.

So here's a little breakdown of my what a day off in my life looks like.

I usually wake up between 8 am and 10 am depending on how late I stayed up on Pinterest or Tumblr.

Sad face while realizing my potato oles were gone. 

Since I'm off, if Karen's working, I will usually walk over to work & have lunch with her around 11.  Usually it's just sandwiches or maybe McD's if we're not feeling the lunch meat route that day.  On Thursday, we went to Taco John's, since she left me for vacation after being out on medical leave, two hours in a month is NOT enough time together.  #boohiss

I will usually head home around 12:15 and then catch up on my blog reading, work on some blog posts for upcoming days, and just putz around online.

About 3, I start getting restless, so I end up cuddling in bed on my phone for a half-hour or so, just to re-charge my batteries.

If I'm in the middle of a good book after I take my cat nap/relax period, I will probably read that til I finish it.  I'm the type of reader, that I usually can never find a good place to stop because I keep wanting to know what happens next, so I very rarely leave a book in the middle.

Usually by that time, I'm ready for supper and I usually just heat up some leftovers or throw a pizza in the oven.

I finish out the night with a movie or start another book, depending on my mood and then I'm usually laying in bed by 10:30 or 11 and I end my night with a few rounds of Candy Crush, the nightly recap with Karen and Pinterest or Tumblr.

What does a normal day look like for you?
Do you have a tumblr?

Above Everything, Love.

If I could give just one piece of advice to a large audience, what would I choose to share?

Love. Let yourself be loved and love others.  Don't sell yourself short when it comes to love.  Love freely and without apology.

The Home of Country Music.

You'd think my day off would be the day that I get a blog post done and posted right away in the morning, but nope, here it is 8pm and I'm just opening blogger.  #ohwell

Ever since I've been old enough to know about Nashville, I've wanted to visit there, and now that one of my good friends Lora lives only a few hours away from there, I really, really, really want to go, not only to sightsee, but to meet Lora as well!

I want to visit the Bluebird Cafe, and I think it'd be cool to see where they film scenes from Nashville, the TV show.

I would love to just walk up and down music row and see if I could run into any of the who's who of Nashville, namely Brantley Gilbert or Garth Brooks.

I want to see the Country Music HOF and the Grand Ole Opry.

Have you been to Nashville?
Where is a location on your vacation bucket list?

50 Q's Part 4

At what time in your recent past have you felt most passionate and alive?
Usually happens after a good church service or going to a concert. 

If not now, then when?
When it's the right time.If you haven’t achieved it yet, what do you have to lose?
What am I achieving? 

Have you ever been with someone, said nothing, and walked away feeling like you just had the best conversation ever?
Karen and I usually can have these conversations while working together, or just when we're sitting at lunch together. 

Why do religions that support love cause so many wars?
Because we're imperfect people.  

Is it possible to know, without a doubt, what is good and what is evil?
I want to say yes, but not without a doubt.  

If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job?
I'd probably cut back, but no I wouldn't completely quit I don't think. 

Would you rather have less work to do, or more work you actually enjoy doing?
More work I enjoy doing :) 

Do you feel like you’ve lived this day a hundred times before?
If I just take a glance at it then yeah, but I also know that there's something special and unique about each day, you just have to be willing to find it! 

When was the last time you marched into the dark with only the soft glow of an idea you strongly believed in?
