My Mom and Dad that raised me and my BF Jaybird have truly blown me away with their love and SUPPORT in my decision to move. They have stepped up to the emotional plate and hit home run after home run. I don't even know how to thank them for how much they've paid attention to my relationship with C. and GET it that I have to be with them. They're not making me feel guilty for leaving, but empowered instead - with their love. I'm really amazed and so very Thankful.

I love the new DRESS I just bought! I'm going to look so coooooollll!!! It's black with bright rainbow-lots-of-color 70's style flowers on it. It's empire waste which makes me look fab and it's SHORT!! (and it was on SALE, 70% off (and cheap to begin with,O.M.G.!!) But the short thing is cool because I got these PERFECTLY matching bright dark teal tights (at the thrift store for 50 cents!!!) that match one of the colors in the dress - again perfectly. AND I already have the coolest Dark Purpley-Marroon platform shoes that match the dress as well that will look so dang cool!!

I can't wait to take a picture to send to C. and to go out and be SEEN in this! :P
I love the feeling I get when I go and hang out with people from my church. It always seems to lift me up and I always learn a lot in our small groups but as of late with everything going crazy - the good feelings of acceptance and happiness seem to be magnified. They're such and understanding excepting group and are only there to listen and help, never judge. We laugh and learn and pray together and it's a true blessing at this time in my life.

I've had a lot of stuff to love in the last few months but not a lot of time to get to it. But here we go!

I LOVE LOVE LOVED baking cookies and making treats on the saturday before Christmas this (well 07) year with my Mom. We've never done anything like that together before but it turned out to be a great experience.

My mom brought BOXES of stuff and an extra table over to my place and we set up shop around 11 a.m. We started baking and didn't stop for even a BREAK until 9 P.M.!! My back was sore and my arms hurt but we sure did have a lot of fun and make a lot of treats. Holy crap a lot of stuff! We made Spritz cookies for the first time and had a ball figuring out our presses, we made sugar cookies to decorate, mint surprises, oatmeal butterscotch, oreo cream cheese balls, pretzel rods dipped in chocolate and rolled in crushed heath bar, haystacks, pretzel-rollo-pecan-thingies, and fudge.

We both gave away almost all of what we made (lord knows we couldn't eat it all) and it made a LOT of nice gifts for people that I don't know very well (C's friends.)

My mom and I had a great time being together more than we normaly get to and I look forward to doing it more. :)
