Blog Challenge Day 4: My Parents

I know I am a couple of days off, but I was kinda busy! :)

This is my mom, Meredith! This picture was taken on my Bachelorette trip, and yes my mom did come on the trip with us! My mom and I are super close. We talk at least once (sometimes more) a day. I can talk to her about just about anything. She is so supportive of anything I do, and yet she will tell me when something not a good idea. Without her I would be lost! I call her about the silliest things. Like how long do you bake a potato, or what do I need to take for a snotty nose. Josh and my step-dad, Scott, like to make jokes about how close my mom and me are, but it's ok I love my mom and I am ok with that! :)

This is my dad, Mike. This picture was taken when I was about 4 or 5 on a family beach trip. I was a total Daddy's girl! He worked hard to provide for my sister and I and never let us do without. He had a kind heart and would lend a hand anyway he could. He was a HUGE Alabama fan and we went to many games together. He could always make me laugh and we had some great times together. I know what you are thinking, "Why are you speaking in past tense?" Sadly, my dad passed away 5 years ago from cancer. It was quiet hard to not have my dad there the day I graduated from college or the day I got married. However, I know that he is always by my side and I take comfort knowing that he is in heaven.
I can say that I was truly blessed with awesome parents. I know many who didn't have the relationship like I did/do with my parents. My parents were very understanding and would not be quick to judge. Because of that I was honest with them most of the time :) I just hope that I will be a great parent one day like mine were!

Blog Challenge Day 3: My First Love

Of course growing up you have those boyfriends that you think you're "in love" with, but it's not really love. So my first love was of course my husband Josh! Josh and I had mutual friends and were from the same town, but didn't know each other. Picture this: Halloween night, college party and I walk in to see a guy dressed in a child's Sponge Bob Square pants costume. Something a guy has to have is a sense of humor, and come on if he's wearing that outfit in publix he HAS to have a sense of humor!So I was smitten! From that night on we "like peas and carrots!" Ha My mom likes to tell this story about Josh and I. As many of you know my dad passed away in 2005; well Josh had not met my family yet. So the first time Josh met my entire family was the day of my dad's funeral. My mom says that she knew from that day forward that he was the man for me, because not many guys would feel comfortable in that situation. He was there for me when I needed him, but at the same time gave me my distance when I needed it. I am very lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life. I am truly blessed!

Josh and I Halloween 2008!
