He did it...

When something good happens in my life, I immediately want to pick up the phone to call my friends and family. A few days ago, I was on the receiving end of one of those calls when my friend, Natalie, called to tell me she was engaged. The day she had been waiting for...E Day...had finally arrived.

I was on cloud nine for the rest of the day. No, I take that back....I'm still on cloud nine. You see, Natalie isn't just engaged. She is engaged to Scott.

I can think of so many reasons why Scott is most definitely husband material. The following isn't an exhaustive list, but hopefull you'll begin to get the picture...
  • Spiritual leader
  • Taught me about BBM
  • Always wears a smile
  • Refers to Natalie as "my girl"
  • Dreams big
  • Plays the best air drum ever
  • Forever an optimist
  • Woo
  • Picked out a BEAUTIFUL ring
Love ya, Scotty! Thanks for loving my best friend like only you can!

Cutest couple EVER!!

World's Best Boss

Last Friday afternoon, the office receptionist called to tell me that there was something for me at the front desk. I was a bit perturbed as I wasn't expecting anything and was drowning in work. I wish I had a picture of the expression on my face when I reached the receptionist's desk and I saw the most BEAUTIFUL flowers. I absolutely LOVE flowers, but I can count on one hand the amount of times I've received them. A quick look at the card is why this post is titled "World's Best Boss." Granted, it has been a crazy week at work...but where I work, everyone is crazy busy all the time. What a blessing it is to have a boss that appreciates my hard work.

Sweet Home Alabama

There's just something about going home that energizes me. Maybe it's the carefree way of life that comes with being from a town of 4500 people or it could be the sense of love that I feel when I'm there...either way, I love going home!

By far, the highlight of the trip home was my precious niece, Emma Kate. I don't get to see her as much as I'd like, but it seems that each visit makes me love her even more. I don't know how that's possible, but it's the truth. I just can't get enough of her!

EK is 2 1/2 years old and is full of insightful comments. She is in love with her two favorite football teams...the T.R. Miller Tigers (high school) and Alabama. However, she is not in love with any team that wears any form of the color blue. It started out with a distaste for the high school rival, but in her eyes, all blue is bad. Luckily, blue is one of Auburn's colors, so that fits our families' loyalty quite nicely.

Like many girls, she is in love with the cheerleaders and the majorettes. Cheerleaders get to "go high" and majorettes have sparkly suits...what 2 year old wouldn't be in love? Check out the video for a little preview of her great cheering skills. Note the real cheerleader pompoms...no shakers for this kid!

Just a few more pictures for good measure...

I'm pretty much in denial that I used to baby-sit for these girls and now they are old enough to take care of my niece!
