My dear friend!

Have you ever had a friend that seems to make life just that much better?  That one friend who knows just what to say when you are having an awful day.  The person you call when everything else in this world seems to be crumbling... that is Carly for me.

God knows our every need and He provided the best girl friend that I could have ever needed.  Even though she lives 14 hours away, and we only get to see each other about every 4 months, our relationship will stand the test of time.

Today is her birthday, and even though I know she wishes that she was turning 23, the maturity and growth that has happened over these last 9 years, she wouldn't trade for anything.

She finds out today what her second little love with be- boy or girl... actually probably right as I am typing this.  No matter girl or boy, that sweet child will be blessed to call you mom, Kevin: dad, and Libby: sissy!

I love you, Car, and I am so thankful for you!

30th Birthday Wishlist

I know my birthday is still 3 months away, but I have been thinking about the things that I might like to have when that day comes...

I have never owned a pair of actual Chuck Taylors, so since I am turning the big 30, I figured now was the time.  I can't wait to rock these suckers.... What color do u think I should get?

Tom's shoes have been one of those things that I have loved for a really long time, but have yet to purchase.  If for some reason that you have been living under a rock and don't know about Tom's... they are an awesome humanitarian effort to provide shoes for children who need them.  It is their one for one program.  I adore what they are doing, and have wanted to be a part of it, but in the past I haven't been able to because of my crazy feet.  Why are they crazy you might ask... if you are asking, then you have yet to see them ;).  Anyhow... these would work, and feel free to purchase them here.  I wear an 8.5/9...

As you know, I have been working on a getting myself a habit.  I decided that I am going to start sewing.  My mom of course is a great seamstress, and I would really like to learn too!  I would like the above machine, because the reviews say that it is easy for beginners, but it is also a good quality machine!

That is all I have for now... if you have any suggestions for me, please let me know!!!!
