Happy October 15th!

Today has been a great day!  Mostly because October 15th marks the day I start listening to Christmas music.  Don't judge too quickly.  I'm not one of those Christmas fanatics.  I don't begin decorating or anything like that until around Thanksgiving time.  I just love Christmas music and honestly, it puts me in a good mood to hear it.

Also, this day reminds me of October 15th last year when I lived with Kristi Foster.  We realized that we were both huge Christmas music fans and I quickly adopted Kristi's October 15th tradition.  It was 11:50 PM and we only had 10 minutes to figure out what song we were going to play first when the clock struck 12.  We couldn't find a recording of the Chipmunk Christmas song, so Kristi found it in a song book.  Yes, you guessed it.  At 12 we sang, "Christmas, Christmas time is here..." at the top of our lungs along with other Christmas carol favorites.  What a good memory.

A wedding in 4 days?

It still hasn't completely sunk in that my little sister is getting married on Saturday.  She's been engaged since April, but it seemed to sneak up on all of us so fast.  I'm spending my extra time this week putting some playlists together for the reception... their first dance, her dance with Dad... that's going to be so special.  I'm so excited for my sister and know that Ezra is the one for her, but it's weird to kind of let go of a chapter in our lives.  It will be different.  Good, but different.  I'm SO happy for you, Bekah.  You're going to be a beautiful bride (and your sisters will complement your beauty quite well, if you ask me.)  :)  Love you, Bek!

Phone Love

New Cell Phone!

Okay, I finally did it!  I got a phone that actually belongs in the 21st century.  Ha!  But it's true.  I had the same old phone for years and years... no camera, no display menu on the front, no video capabilities.  It barely did text messaging.  It clearly was time for me to update.  So now I can take pictures, record little 30 second videos, actually do the whole bluetooth thing and much more I'm not even aware of yet!!  Here's a few pics of me and my new phone that I love.

I'm officially a blogger... look at me go!

Hello and welcome to my first ever blog.  Wow, I feel so official.   I feel like such an adult.  Speaking of feeling like an adult, I got my ears pierced a week ago!  Yep, I finally mustered up the strength and bravery to do it.  I'm not gonna lie - I was scared!  I tried when I was 12, but a friend accidentally stepped on my left freshly-pierced-ear and alas, my doctor informed me that it was infected.  I went home from the doctor's office with only my right ear still pierced.  The next day I realized how stupid I looked with only one earring, so I took it out and decided I probably wouldn't go through all of that again.  So here I am, 25 and just now being exposed to the wonderful world of earrings!  I can't wait till I can switch them out.  Although, I love the studs I have in right now.  My sister's wedding was a great excuse to get the job done.  Now I'll look real pretty for pictures and stuff.  It's funny how such a small little sparkly thing on each earlobe and make a girl feel so pretty... but it does. :)
