What were you thankful for this Thanksgiving?

I was thankful for my momma who was able to come be with us for the Thanksgiving holiday's. This woman has been the best momma a girl could ever ask for. When I went to the hospital almost 2 months ago she flew up when I said the words "I need you momma." No questions asked... no let me think about it. She got the tickets and come to be with me. She is an incredible mother and grandmother and I don't know what life would be like without her in my life.

I am thankful that I was able to make Thanksgiving dinner for the first time for my mom. I have only made dinner one other time so this was a blessing to me. (I only hope the food was good... haha)

Ever been to California?

Why yes... I have.

My husband and I drove from Washington state to Sacramento, California to go to his brother's wedding 2 years ago. It was such a long drive, but it was an amazing time together with my husband. I would do it all over again if I had the chance... long roads ahead of us... listening to old music... talking hours upon hours to each other...

We did have a minor car issue, but thanks to the help of a stranger we were able to get back on the road after a 2 hour delay... The wedding was amazing and we had a blast. We headed back to Washington and decided to spend the night in a hotel in Portland and walk around the mall there before heading home the following day.

I will take road trips with my husband any day! I love being around him and it was a perfect chance for us to just be together...

Quote of the Day

There are two gifts we should give our children:

  1. One is roots... 
  2. The other is wings... 
It has taken me around 8 years to apply number 2 to my child's life. I had a hard time letting her fly solo but she needs to!

Favorite paper?

Do you like to use college rule or wide rule paper?

My preference is and always will be wide rule. I have good handwriting and I prefer the wide rule. I am not able to write the way I want if I use the college rule, so it limits what I can do.

What do you prefer?

Enchilada's or Burrito's

I actually like Burrito's better. I am not a huge fan of enchilada sauce, so I believe that is why I tend to lean more towards burrito's...

Quote of the Day

Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything.

Do you have any pen pals?

I actually do have pen pals. I had some growing up, but lost touch with those. This past year I joined a website called Swap-bot and I have met a ton of people through the website. You can do different swaps with different people and I have done a few pen pal swaps. I think I have about 10 ladies that I write back and forth to during the year. It has been fun and I enjoy sending letters in the mail, so it is fun for me.

Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light...
