Getting to know her through the sweet things she shared with me...

Girl - I wish I could waer my hair two days old and still looks as beautiful as you. Seriously, me=jealous.
And that care package from your momma is just so sweet. What a great one you've got there.
Those leg warmers = so cute. I wish I could wear stuff like that and look as cute. I have no style in comparison to you!
And roadtrips = heaven. So much fun, especially when you don't have to drive!

I love those boots! I also love my parents' wedding photos (and yours! so cute!) Matt always drives us to our destinations too, he's safer than me :P

Risti Megan said...

I agree with Jenni- I wish I could go two days without washing my hair. I love your parent's wedding photo. Your mom is so beautiful.

Lauryn said...

Your post are always so warm and fuzzy! They're good for the soul :)

Don't you love the feeling you get when you hang things on the walls? Jason and I are starting to hang all of our photography throughout the house and it makes such a difference!

Awesome and your family looks so sweet!

Yay on the boots and have a good weekend!

Chip said...

Cute boots...but you may have to wear different ones for deep snow...or the forecast will call for cold and wet feet.

Love you!

greystrawberrys said...

All these photos are so nice! Your hair looks better than mine with it washed, maybe I shouldn't wash it? :P Your parents look so nice in that photo too <3

xoxoxo

Erin said...

Is that your kitchen floor in that photo of the boots? My mom and dad had that floor, FOREVER. I grew up in a house that had that kitchen floor. We were meant to be friends!

Love your list. And I always go a few days between washing my hair. It looks way better that way!

Kimbirdy said...

What a sweet list! I love the one about dirty hair! and controlling the radio on roadtrips is definitely the best. :)

Ams said...

Love your boots.... love this post!
Beautiful :)

Jen said...

This is such a fantastic list. I loved reading it and seeing your pictures! I am envious, however, that you can wear your hair two days dirty without combing it and have it look so pretty! How do you do that? My hair would be a disaster zone with frizzy curls knotted all over my head.

Nahl said...

$1.25? That's amazing!
I love you niece.

Michely Medeiros. said...

aww i love your blog!! its soo sweet and the boots will surely help...im just hoping the storm wont come!!!

Kassi said...

what pretty women you have in your family!

enjoy your weekend making pretty cards!

jozen said...

SO JEALOUS OF YOUR BOOTS

eQ said...

Us filipinos have the gift of beautiful unwashed hair! I sure hope you dont get all that snow, but at least you are prepared!

My mom sent me 1 care package after I moved away. ONE! But thats ok i guess, I go home to Washington often.

Um HELLO!!!!! DEXTER IS THAT SHIZZZZZ! I won't spoil season 1 or 2 (i just finished 2, and 3 is in the mail to me now! Gotta love netfilx streaming!) But hurry up and find out who the Ice truck Killer is so we can gush! Season 2 was FAB =) OMG i need to stop.

PS, you should join 20SB, tons of cool people and blogs to be found there =)

danielle and dinosaur toes said...

Okay, lots to say...
I think hair ALWAYS looks better on the second day!

Boots for $1.25?!?! Where in the world did you find them? I love them!

Maverick is so cute! Flojo has certain shoes and pieces of clothing that she particularly likes (and some that she hates)!

I love your art grouping and I'm a tiny bit jealous. I've informed Chris that we WILL hang a plate grouping this weekend!

kathleen said...

I LOVE the photo of your parents getting married and the one with you and your niece.

You are truly gorgeous!

I LOVED the comment you left on my "I Miss Brad and Jen" post. First of all, I totally remember when Brad wore that Jen necklace. I loved that! And when my heart was broken, I completely used Jennifer as a role model. I figured if she could get through her heartache (not to mention the public humiliation) with grace, then I sure as hell could get through anything.

I want to thank you for always leaving the kindest comments on my blog. So many of them have really touched me. Thanks so much!

Micaela said...

kathleen, thank you for your darling comment. Your blog - your amazing writing of your emotions so clearly and heartfelt - are pieces of you on your sleeve. I love that quality, never lose it.

Brad & Jen... you get me completely.

j'adore you!
xoxo
