So I like to think that at my age, I've done a great deal of traveling. I'm really really fortunate for this and in turn, I love to see new places. I've been all over the US (CA, GA, AL, TX, FL, NC, SC, VA, MD, CT, NY, IL, OH, KY, MA, LA, MS...), Hawaii, Mexico, Honduras, all through the Carribbean, England, France, Italy, Germany, Switzerland... you get the idea.
So I would have a really hard time picking one single place to talk about. And then I got to thinking, what if I talk about the place I've traveled to and am currently visiting! Like, right this minute!
Ok, so some of you probably believe I'm cheating. Sure, I grew up in Augusta! And now I live in Texas and Augusta has become a destination rather than my home. (wow, it makes me a little sad to type that) I came into town to throw my sweet sister a fun & exciting wedding shower. Jordan stayed home this time, but I'm thrilled because both of us will be back in 4 short weeks for Casey's wedding!
It's funny how different your hometown becomes when you no longer live there. I can remember longing to get out of Augusta when I was in high school. I guess you could easily say I got my wish, and now that I've been gone for several years, I think very fondly of my hometown. I love coming back to visit and seeing my family and wonderful old friends. Jordan and I will often meet friends and family for lunch or dinner and eat at some of the awesome restaraunts that are exclusive to Augusta... we usually gain about 5 or 6 pounds while here! Mostly our trips home are fun and exhausting and sometimes they're sobering, because we come to the realization that just as our lives have moved on since living here, so have everyone else's.
I will always consider Augusta to be where I was born and raised. What is a place you have traveled to??

I like all kinds of movies! This is a fun topic to write about!! I like fun movies, lovey movies, animated things, action movies. The one genre that I'm a little less than excited about would have to be horror, but I also like a little scare every once in a while. Ok, Rarely.
I also like to quote movies. A lot! I sometimes quote movie lines in everyday conversation. This buys me lots of funny looks- unless the person I'm talking to is a fan of the movie. I get a thrill out of PW's movie line quizzes!! Check out these favorites:
"The brothers, they think I dont know a buttload of crap about the gospel, but I do."
"Hey didya see that sky today? Talk about blue."
"You can read minds?"
Ok enough. Back to the topic at hand.... my favorites!
5 points to the person who knows the movies that correspond to the quotes above!

(thanks Google Images for the KKs)
So it's breakfast (kind of) here in Georgia and alllllllll I wanted this morning was a hot & fresh krispy. They make me happy. I received a dozen and was forced to share them with my family.
Just kidding. I shared nicely. After I'd eaten 2.
And by 2, I mean 3.
What makes you happy today????

Aside from brothers/sisters-in law, I have 2 awesome sisters: my older sister, Jennifer and a younger sister, Casey. Jenn is a special ed teacher and Casey is a nurse! (I tried to talk her out of it, but she didnt listen!!) They both live in Georgia so I dont get to see them nearly as often as I'd like to, but that makes our time together even more special.

While I could definitely say that my first love is Jesus, then Jordan, and then my momma (or mom then Jesus and finally Jordan if you're going chronologically) , I'm sure this question is much more centered around my first "Goodness gracious I want to marry you & have your babies!" love, so I'll tell you a little more about my husband.

I need to run 11 miles tomorrow.
I just have to convince myself that it's not really going to kill me. So much of running (for me) is a mind game, telling myself to put one foot in front of the other. And something that i've been struggling with the past 10 days is consistency. 2 weeks ago I ran 9 miles with no problems. Sure I was tired, but my excitement over actually finishing greatly outweighed the jelly legs. Since then, I can hardly make it to 4 measly miles. I've got 15 days left until the Rock & Roll San Antonio Half Marathon and tomorrow is the pinnacle of my training, because next week I'll taper off.

We'll host one more Overtime before the end of the football season. Ultimately, we hope the unchurched students who come to have fun will return and get plugged in. Who says good, clean fun doesnt exist anymore?? We had somewhere around 75ish students stop by to ping pong, eat pizza and bump around in sumo suits. Success!

Hahaha... the van shot... pre-"shenanigans." I want to say thanks to Destiny for being my official weekend photographer. (as I was a little busy with other things)
I hope that some of the gals who participated enjoyed themselves. I also more importantly hope that they spent some serious time learning God's word. We covered topics like loving yourself, loving God and loving other people. We talked about modesty and purity. It was nice to even remind myself how important it is to spend quality time reading the Bible and improving my relationship with Christ.

When we arrived Thursday afternoon (gosh, could I look any more tired here?), we met Philip downtown and ate some real Chicago deep dish pizza at Gino's East. Asking someone from Chicago where the best deep dish pizza is located is kind of like asking someone from South Texas where the best mexican food is. Everyone has a different opinion. My opinion? It was yummy and filling! One piece of pizza was like a gut bomb!
Pretty city. I think that while I am a city girl at heart, I also love owning a house that doesnt cost a ridiculous amount of money. Also, there was a small period of time in H&M where I got a little claustrophobic from the crowd. I'm over that now.
Anyone who has read my blog for even just 5 minutes knows that I cannot turn down Sprinkles. So of course, we made a trip and it was divine as usual. I got a strawberry cupcake (my fav!) and a vanilla cupcake. I should've gotten out of my comfort zone and tried a cinnamon sugar or chai latte cupcake but oh well. There's always next time!
