Show and Tell / Favorites

1. Tell us about your 5 favorite memories in your life.

. Landon’s birth: I’m pretty sure I don’t need to elaborate on this one. Motherhood has changed me and made my life so full…that experience, all thirty six hours of it, brought me my greatest blessing.

. Our wedding…actually our honeymoon after the craziness of the wedding! That week I fell more in love with my husband, it was pretty perfect. Perfectly relaxing, and perfectly us. Just the two of us. One of the rare times when I had 7 days of no interruptions and nothing but quality time with my husband.

. My high school weekends at Windy Gap with Young Life  Younglife has been a huge part of my life, and really shaped my faith as a teenager. One of my best memories is going to weekend camp in the mountains of NC. I can’t really think of a time I felt closer to God.

.Our Weekend in NYC Two years ago, John and I took an impromptu weekend trip to NYC two weeks before Christmas with my sister and her then boyfriend. It was an awesome. We saw the sights, saw Elf on broadway, and just took in all the city had to offer. For whatever reason, it really is one of my favorite memories ever. Going to the city was on my bucket list, and I loved everything about it. I loved that the whole weekend we didn’t use a car. I loved the energy of the city. I loved the Christmas craziness.

.playing softball growing up. I played softball for almost fourteen years and gave it up right before I went to college. The softball field was where I really grew into who I was as a person. Playing gave me confidence and strength and for that I will always be grateful. I really struggled with fitting in growing up, but on the field it didn’t matter. And the girls I played with accepted me for who I was. Looking back, softball really changed who I was, and brought me out of so many insecurities I struggled with. Secondly, my dad was my coach, and I will always be grateful for his dedication to me during those years. He never missed a game, woke up at the crack of dawn with me to drive to tournaments, and loved every minute of it. Those years as father and daughter impacted me in so many ways and I am so so grateful for a dad like him. I hope to have the same relationship with my kids.

2. Show us 3 of your favorite beauty products.

Bare Minerals Loose Powder/Foundation : I have tried cheaper versions of this, but I keep coming back to it. I normally don’t splurge on beauty products and am a strict drug store buyer, but this is the one thing I will spend money on. Plus, it lasts forever.

Its a 10 Miracle Leave in Product: makes my hair silky smooth, and really fights the frizz and fly aways.
Burts Bees Chapstick- I’m addicted.

3. Tell us what your favorite TV shows are to watch.

Greys Anatomy, any of the Real Housewives , and Revenge

4. Show us 2 of your favorite pictures.

The first one I took at the beach this past August…I love everything about it. I love the depth of field, I love the color, I love his sweet self. Its one I’m really proud of.
