Happy Birthday Shish!

Happy Birthday Shish! I love you!

You have been the best big sister ever and I truly dont know what I would do without you! You would think that with you living 2 hours away our relationship would fall by the way side but its done the exact opposite it has grown so much in the last year and half! We have become so much closer and I miss you so much! I know that I can always count on you to be there for me and I can always expect a call from you after something big in my life has happened so you can get the full report! You are such an amazing person and you are always caring for others! I have always looked up to you and I will continue to do so!
I love you so much Britt!

Dear Old Man,

I'm just now getting around to writing this blog so its a few days late but..


I love you so much! Thanks for putting up with me for 17 years! You've been the best Dad! To the world you seem like one of the shyest people but oh boyyyyy they've obviously never seen you around the house where you let it rip, with the good ole mooing like a cow and howling like a coyote in the shower, and the "cool" things you see me do and try to do like the heart and the peace sign. :)

You have always put a smile on my face, even when I'm balling my eyes out you just come sit next to me and stare at me not sure just what the right thing is to say to me but I realize that you are just trying to let me know that you are there for me and care about me and that is more than enough for me! :)

I love you Papa Bear! I cant thank you enough for being the best Daddy ever! Even the smallest things like providing shelter over my head and food on the table each night mean the world to me! I know sometimes I may take all those things forgranted but I really and truly do appreciate all the time you take to do those things just to make sure I'm safe and happy!

My Whole World

I know I am incredibly behind on blogging.
I just cant seem to find any time these days to sit down and post!
So for now you will probably just get post full of pictures simply bc I dont have time to sit down and put my brain to work and write stuff. lol

I have been so blessed to be able to work with these two girls as Yearbook Editors with me.
(At a recent yearbook conference we went to with our adviser Mrs Springer)
Fishing with Kyle. :)

Me and my friends at the Apopka ESPN2 game

I love my little twin Abbey! :)

Again I love my editors! They are the best! :)

Precious Memories

This one is for my Grandpa who I love so very much! :)
My life for the past 17 years has been filled with countless memories at my Grandpa's house sharing laughter and love. I have always looked forward to the Sunday afternoons at Grandpa and Grandma's house every week.

One of my earliest memories of Grandpa would be those infamous rides with him on the lawnmower with me wearing nothing but a diaper and a smile on my face. These memories range from my joyful lawnmower rides with him in years past to our current weekly Sunday visits down to the lake to visit the horses.

My Grandpa is my hero and I know that no matter what kind of day I have had he can always put a smile on my face. Grandpa is a man of wisdom and honor. I believe that as a young person I have a lot I could learn from my Grandpa.

As a child my Grandpa was never sure that there would be food on the table each meal for him and his siblings. Because of his early childhood he now feels very blessed with the things he has today. After watching my Grandpa, I have learned to appreciate the things that the Lord blesses me and my family with.

In recent years my Grandpa has gotten older and along with getting older comes health problems. He has fallen several times and his balance is off. We have worried about him hurting himself out in the nursery. Despite the fact that my Grandpa’s health has declined in recent years he has still kept his steadfast work ethic. My Grandpa has always had a love for working and being outside. He is not content until the job is finished. If there were more people in this country like my Grandpa this world would be a lot better of a place

Even while laying in his hospital bed a few weeks ago Grandpa found a way to cheer us up and make us laugh. His fun loving spirit during this stressful time encourages me to look for the best in each situation I encounter in life.

On a daily basis he puts others before himself. He is always interested in what is going on in my life and willing to help with whatever project I have going on. My Grandpa’s compassion for others inspires me every day to be like him.

I believe I can learn a lot by watching those who have had more experience than me.

Happy Birthday Bro! I love you so much! You have been such an awesome bro-in-law and friend to me! I have been so blessed to have someone like you as a brother-in-law!!!
You crack me up with your dancing in the car and the little random things you do! Little did I know when I met you that you were this crazy! hahah. There are only a few "privileged" people that see this side of you :P
I love you Forrista!
Your Shish

Reality is kicking in!

I will not mention any names but it has been brought to my attention numerous times
by a dear sister of my mine that I love oh so much,
*cough* Brittany Nicole Sumner *cough*
that I haven't posted every day like I said I would.

I know I know! I have failed miserably at my daily post in my 75 days of Summer series.
I'm sorry! Things have just gotten so busy here and once Harmony Highlands passed,
I wanted to be able to sit and write all about it but I kept putting it off till eventually more and more things were happening that is was way too much to even begin to try and post about! haha.

But with summer coming to an end very shortly I have a very harsh and sudden reality check that
yes indeed I am a senior and right now I am experiencing my last summer of true freedom. :(

I have very mixed emotions about my senior year.

I am so excited about all the fun senior events that are going to happen and the football games and pep rallys and senior bonfire.
But I also am not looking forward to walking across that stage and getting my diploma and posing for that cheesy picture with the principal and then stepping out into the real world.

I've always looked forward to graduating with great anticipation as I grew up watching my sister and 2 of my cousins walk across the same stage that I would walk across one day.

But I got to tell ya now that its here I'm kinda scared!

It all kinda hit me recently when I was talking to my best friend about senior year and everything. She got talking about college and all the stuff she had to do in order to get into the college she wanted to, SMU in Dallas, Texas. I suddenly realized holy crapp in a very short time we are graduating and life isnt going to be all about friday night football games! Things are going to change completely. & my best friend who I have always been able to rely on for the past two years isnt going to be just a 15 minute drive away if I need to her to make those awesome break up cookies she makes! :P All the sudden I just broke down in tears thinking about everything changing and not being able to see my close friends every day!

I realize this is all part of growing up but gosh darn it why does it all have to happen so fast?

So I guess all this to say yeah although I love to say "Gosh I cant wait to be done with high school and out of the drama!" (which I'm sure all of you have heard me say on numerous occasions haha) I really am going to miss high school so much and the people that I have grown to know and love the past 4 years. So with that being said I havent forgotten about you dear bloggers! Although senior year is going to be crazy hectic I will try my best to post as much as possible!

But my advice to you if you really want to be in the "IN" crowd get a facebook! haha *Cough* Brittany! *Cough* hahah Love you B!
I will leave you with a very short recap of my summer with a picture from each event. :)
Love yall!
