5 little things...
This will be the first edition of "5 Little Things You May Want to Know About Me." I thought it would be good if every once in awhile I share some simple facts about me, my life, what I like, what I don't like, etc.
As I talked yesterday in my blog, I have made a lifestyle change. A big/huge part of that is drinking lots, and lots of water. Many times we confuse our dehydration with being hungry, so by caring water around with me all the time it helps me fight some cravings. One draw back... heading to the bathroom a lot more.
I received this lovely study Bible for Christmas this past year from my Grammy and Papa. I had been wanting one for awhile and got to go pick it out with my Grammy ahead of time. It's a New American Standard, Life Application Study Bible. I've really loved having it, especially at this stage in my life and relationship with Christ. I really have been craving a deeper relationship with God and a better understanding of His word. Very excited about the future journey I'll be taking with this beside me.
I love it when people smell good. You know when someone is near you and you have to find out what their wearing, or when you hug someone and it's just like, "Yum!" Well I figure that if I like it when other people smell real nice they probably wouldn't mind me smelling pretty good too. So, for all of you that have asked me what I wear... Heat by Beyonce is my scent. I'm a big fan of Beyonce. My celebrity, diva, alter ego would definitely be Beyonce so when she came out with this perfume I had to try it. Fell in love with it and made it my scent. It's spicy hot and kind of sweet.
For the longest time my jewelry was stored in boxes and a small jewelry box but the problem was that it all just blended together. I ended up wearing the same stuff all the time or just not putting anything on because it was harder to go through. I knew I needed a way to display it all for easy access. I come up with this contraption below about a year and a half ago. I took a cork board I had already and attached string going across from side to side, supported by some push pins the top to hang earrings from. Then I just pushed in pins on the bottom to hang necklaces from. I have loved having this. I can see what I have and easily pair things together with an outfit. Now I just have to put something together for my earring studs, rings, and some other accessories.
This is my "Little One." His name: Manasseh. His nicknames: Little One, Chicken Little, Fudgie, Fudge Poppie, Corduroy, Fudgie Roy, Nasseh. Since coming home he has become my little buddy. We go on walks around the neighborhood, up at the lake, or hiking in the woods. He's not much of a cuddler but I force him to and he's getting better. I love the picture in the bottom right hand corner because today after coming in from our walk/run this morning he plopped down on my tennis shoes. So cute.
