Saturday, November 27, 2010 wanna know a little about me? Q&A

I am going to frequently post a few Q & A's for you all. I thought this would be fun and share a little about myself I wouldn't normally/randomly share; I will try and elaborate a bit and tell stories too. :) Feel free to post any more questions, or have your friends ask you some to share on your blog! If so, post your blog link here so I can check them out!!!

How old are you? I am 21 years old as of August 30th!

Where do you live and with who? I live in Louisville, Kentucky with my daughter, Madalyn-who will be 2 in January OMG, and my boyfriend, Zach.

Where did you grow up? I grew up in Florida. I was born in Clearwater and lived in Safety Harbor until I was about 12. I then, moved in with my Aunt & Uncle in Gainesville for a year to finish middle school. At the end of the year when I was going to move back in with my mom and step-dad, they got a house in the New Port Richey area of Florida. I went to high school there for about 3 years, and when I was 16 we all moved here to Kentucky [  in the middle of my senior year ;*(   ] Kenny's (my stepdad's) family lives here and they wanted to be closer, and thought it was a better place to raise my now 6 year old sister, Meghan. I guess it's not so bad here.

With whom did you grow up? siblings? friends? I mostly grew up with my brother, Tommy, and my mom was a single mom, she worked WAY too hard, and took amazing care of us. I am very independent because of the example that my mom set for me. I spent a LOT of time with my friend Amber, since she was my "across-the-street" neighbor, and when my Aunt Melinda ("Mindy" --not officially my aunt, but was VERY close with our family and my mom) and her daughters lived in Florida in different spurts, we spent a whole lot of time together too. Mindy had 3, almost 4 daughters when I actually remember "meeting" them (I was so young)--Teisha(my age and the one I was closest to--actually asked me these questions too!) Brandy, Stephanie, and almost Autumn. She now has a few more: Jazmein, Ciera, & Savanna-they all live in Maryland now, and Brandy just had twins!  Once I got closer to my teen years, I spent most of my spare time with Melissa. I am still very close with all of the above named, btw, even though we're all miles and miles apart.

I am thankful for my best friends.

Melissa has been my best friend for more than ten years. She is my lobster, and I can say that there is no doubt in my mind that she will be a part of my life forever. and after that.

Amber is another of my very best friends. I was in diapers when we became friends, thus don't even remember meeting her, but I know for several years she lived across the street from me and we used to play together almost every day. Now, even states apart, she is incredibly special to me, and that will never change!

What are YOU thankful for?

thanksgiving blog project!

I am thankful for so many things in my life, and even though I love that there is a holiday dedicated to giving thanks for all of the wonderful little things we hold dear, I think we should all do this more often! This is my challenge to my readers, assuming I have some. Make a post on your blog, or facebook, or write a little note to someone if you wish, I don't care how you do it, but share some of the things you're thankful for. I think it is a great idea to write little notes or post-its telling people why you are thankful that they are a part of your life. But, like I said, be creative and just share your gratefulness! When you do this, either post your link here, or take a picture and share it with me! My post will follow shortly! :) PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH YOUR FRIENDS!!

my first maternity photo shoot

went rather well, I think. It definitely helped immensely that my "client" was also a friend of mine, and just so happens to be more experienced in professional photography.

Oh sweet forts, how I love thee...

A Beautiful Mess





All images courtesy of [weheartit] unless otherwise specified. I really love forts, if you can't already tell. They provide me with a sense of fantasy and late night slumber parties! They are extravagantly simple, and so much fun. I would love to spend an afternoon turning Madalyn's room into a huge fortress of sheets! Maybe the living room for a bit too. :)
