My best friends

This is Jamie.

(this photo was taken by the wonderful and talented Hudson Photography)

She is one of my best friends. We grew up together, went to the same college, and magically ended up with many of the same friends.

This is Rachel.

(again photo by Hudson Photography, they're amazing)

She is my other best friend! Although we didn't grow up together I feel like we did sometimes. We went to the same college and also have many of the same friends (including a best friend, Jamie)!

God must really love me because he gave me two wonderful people to be my best friends! They are both kind, smart, funny, and all around just amazing. I miss them so much everyday but I'm thankful for their continued close friendship and support! They will always be such a big part of my life and I wanted to take this time to make sure they knew, as well as the whole world! I miss you both oh so much and love you with all the love I can give! Thanks for being such great friends!

I can only hope you have such great friends in your life too.....which I'm sure you all do. So make sure to tell them how great they are!

Besides, you can make the words up if you have too! ;)

Brrrrrr....and yuck and the Hogs

It is freezing in our house! FREEZING. I'm sure you are thinking just turn up the heat. Well I would but I live with one of the most frugal men in the world! (I'm over exaggerating a wee bit). But he seriously doesn't like to turn the heat on. Crazy I know. Well we had company this weekend so he finally did, but he won't turn it above 65 degrees. So everyday when he gets home I say, "Babe, it was so cold in the house today!" And he replies with, "Well, did you put on a jacket?" Yes, like it's totally normal to walk around your house with 17 layers of clothes on....silly boy! But I love him anyways.

And it's gross out! It's supposed to rain here for the next few days....boooooo.

So we had guest this weekend (like I mentioned before) and we all got to go the the LSU v. Arkansas game! Wooooohooooooo. I wanted nothing more than for us to win, especially since we now live in LSU land (New Orleans is close enough to be too close). Sadly we did not win, but I do look forward to a great football team next year!

We were all pretty worried about going to the game to say the least. We've experienced (in Little Rock) and heard horrible LSU fan stories. But to our delight, it was SO not the case. Actually it was quite the opposite for the most part, excluding the very angry-looking gentleman who honk at us the entire time he was flipping us the bird. BUT then an amazing thing happened, a car full of LSU fans slowed down, rolled their window down and............offered us a free parking pass. Now for the longest time we debated about whether it was legit or not and decided we might as well find out. Well, it was and it was so close to the stadium. Our original 2 mile walk turned into about 2 blocks! AMAZING! And once inside, many fans asked if we were being treated okay and wanted to stop and talk to us. It made for a very fun experience, except for that who losing in overtime thing!

Yay for 25 days til Christmas!!!
