Speed Dating

     …sort of.  I’m linking up with This Little Momma for a little “getting to know you” party.  How fun!  There aren’t any concrete questions (although if you have some I would be happy to answer them), so I’ll just be telling all the little tidbits about me I think you ought to know.
     Here we go!

     I am just about as Baptist as they come.  I know I haven’t talked a ton about my faith on here, and I have really felt convicted about it lately.  I’ve been saved since I was in the third grade, but the past few years have been an incredible time of growth for me.  I am excited about what the Lord is doing in my life, and recently I have had such a peace about some things that a few months ago would have sent me into a tailspin. 

     I’m from Jackson, TN, and I absolutely love it!  That being said…if someone offered to move me to the beach and bankroll my life it would be “Good-bye Tennessee! Hello Fort Morgan!”

     I am engaged to Keith, and am so excited about where our life is going.  We’re getting married June 22, 2013, and I am thrillllllled.

     My favorite color is orange, but if you looked in my closet you would probably think it was black or gray.

     I love big hair (classy big hair).  I kind of want to look like a newscaster/beauty queen.  I achieve this look with lots of layers, volumizing shampoo, and blow-drying upside down…and velcro rollers and AquaNet.

     I am a book vacuum.  When I don’t have something on TV other things to do , I go through them in as little as a day.

     I hate Facebook…but I’m weak and can’t delete mine…

     I am not important enough for Twitter – y’all do not want/need to know what I am doing all day long.  You would be bored to tears.

     I am a stresser and an overthinker.  I will analyze a situation until I have myself convinced I know what is going to happen…I’m wrong a lot, but I’m getting okay with that.

     I am a grammar girl.  I love proof reading and editing and my red pen.

     I’m also a vocabulary girl.  I love words (probably because I love reading).

     I love tomatoes – favorite food by far.

     I don’t have a ton of friends, but I am really okay with it.  I spend most of my time with my mother and my sister, and I like it that way.  We’re pretty much the same person, so the conversation just flows.

     I get a serious headache if I don’t have a Coke every day.  I know that’s pitiful, but I don’t want to give it up.

     That’s me in a speedy nutshell.  I think posts like this are so fun, and I hope all of y’all will stop by This Little Momma and link up!

Thanks so much for linking up! I stress about everything- I know that I turn situations into something bigger when I over analyze them. And I think that the best thing I could have done for my blog (and myself) is talked about my faith- it took me a while to realize that though!! :)

I love this link up! I came across your blog completely randomly but I am glad I came across it. I am also not a member of Twitter. I just can't do it. I also am over Facebook, but still add pictures and sort of keep up with people but very low-key. If you would like to check out my blog, please do.

I am totally with you on the colors in your closet! I love bright colors yet wear dark all the time (I am sitting here in a gray and black dress with black flats!)

I love big hair, too! You know what the say: the higher the hair, the closer to God! I'm a total grammar freak, too! I love editing my friends' papers!
