my fiance


I just want to take a second (if I don’t get interrupted) to tell you how awesomely special I feel to have Justin as my fiance! Yesterday he was faced with a tough decision about work. Pretty much he had to decide between work and family (according to his boss) and without hesitation he told her, family ALWAYS comes first. How awesome is that to have a man that no matter what the cost will choose his family? I know that I will never be left in the dust. He might not know what the future holds but he is so strong and we both know we can trust the Lord. He has helped us through worse and will continue to help us everyday! Thank you God for blessing me with the best future husband I could ever dream of! I just hope he knows how special he is to me and our family and to you!

new phrase


I learned a new southern phrase this week. Maybe it’s not southern but this yankee hadn’t heard it. Ready for the phrase?

“I don’t have a dog in this fight.” I think that is a cool phrase. I’m glad I was able to pick up on it this week. I know I’ve been down here for 11 years but I still find myself picking up on new things.

Ok I’ve said my thing…now go have a good day!

long time…


I know that it has been forever! and that even Justin has beat me with the blog posting lately. Things with me have been so busy lately. I have much to say about more insurance issues…(don’t trust that even the NC Dept of Insurance will help you). I also had a Bridal Shower in Polk County last Sunday (I had a great time! and thank you Lorraine for putting it together for me!) We have sent the invitations out (yesterday) and tomorrow starts my 8-8 shifts until September 1st. I’m not feeling all that hot today. I couldn’t sleep and woke up very hot and miserable. I hope this is just a passing cold. I better get back to work but I hope to really update later.



This weekend Tabitha, Heather, Justin, and I went to Black Forest up in Cedar Mountain to go camping. I had never been camping before and really wanted to. Heather had never seen a waterfall (in real life). Heather and Tabitha went up on Friday night (I had to work graduation so we couldn’t join them until Saturday at lunch). It poured on the poor girls and water leaked into the tent. Luckily most of it was dry before we went to bed on Saturday. We hiked some and saw plenty of waterfalls. It was great! We even got to do a little swimming. At night we entertained ourselves by playing Swap and Phase 10.

Sunday morning we packed things up and checked out before 12. Then we stopped by Connestee Falls and my house on the way down the mountain. We stopped by Looking Glass Falls too and then on to the Fish Hatchery. It decided to pour down the rain on us but we had fun running to the car. Then we stopped at the Hendersonville “mall” and it poured even harder on us there. Eventually we wandered back to Shelby and ate at Yamatos, then went back to Heather and Tabitha’s to play Phase 10 again. What a weekend!

Well now you are pretty much caught up on Bonnie-ville.
