Happy Birthday Rachel Starr!!!


Today is my great friend Rachel’s birthday! Her and Jamie share the same birthday month, which is fun!!!! Rachel’s future husband and my boyfriend also share the same birthday month. Rachel has a wedding coming up in May that I am fortunate enough to be a part of. I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. One of the hardest things in my life currently has been having to be away from some of my closest friends. Yes, I do have close friends in Little Rock, but that doesn’t mean I don’t miss the ones who live in Fayetteville. Also I have to mention how extremely talented Rachel is if you have furbabies and love him like they were children then you have to visit her website and see all her amazing pictures….yup Rachel specializes in pet photography and she is GREAT!!!!

I am blessed with wonderful people in my life from my family and friends to the people I work with. Rachel is one of those blessings and I want to wish her the BEST birthday EVER! I can’t wait to get to be a part of all the wonderful things that are happening in your life.

So here’s to you Rachel, to wedding planning, a new husband, and the rest of your life as Mrs. Rachel Sloan.

Happy Birthday Jamie Gray!!!


One of the hardest things for me in my life right now is being away from some of my closest friends (you know who you are). Although I have some of my close friends here with me in Little Rock, I have to admit I enjoyed it more when we were all together in one town! But that’s just a part of life.

So since I can’t be with Jamie on her birthday I will make her a birthday blog. (I stole the idea to add a card to my blog from my very dear and creative friend Rachel at Four Legs Photography, you need to check out her site, she does wonderful work!)

Here’s to you Jamie, and to lower car insurance, getting married, and enjoying being halfway to 50! Love you so much and I know you will have the best day EVER!!!

Click HERE to view the ecard I sent her. I would post it to the blog, but I can’t figure it out! I swear I used to be more computer savvy. I guess I’m just not blog savvy!

My wonderful friend Jamie!

I have GREAT friends!!


Okay so since I didn’t (note the past tense) blog enough, I have a lot of catching up to do. So I will make this blog about how great my friends are……ALL of them!! I thank God often for loving me so much and surrounding me with such great people. People you love me, laugh with me, lift me up when I am down, and are always there for me. So thank you, in case I don’t say it enough.

Speaking of great friends, my friends Jamie and Rachel threw me a graduation party and following are some of those pictures:

And of course I must post some more pictures of the baby. He had kennel cough and we were very worried about him because he looked like he had lost weight. Apparently we were wrong, the little guy has gained 2.5 pounds in only 6 days. Talk about a chubby monkey (I often call him this). He is acting like he feels much better and we had a very good visit with Dr. Winters today! So here is the chubby moneky:

I can’t figure out why it’s posting his picture twice, but oh well here he is.

Whatda ya think?


My friend Rachel created my new blog header! Isn’t it awesome! She’s very creative, she is also a pet photographer and has an amazing eye. You can check out her work at!

Well life has for the most part been uneventful. I am struggling staying motivated, but picked up a few sparks from my long time friend Sam who has been able to make great changes with her life! Keep it up Sam! Jake and I will be attending our good friends wedding this weekend in Pine Bluff. It’ll be my first time to go to Pine Bluff I heard it smells bad because of the paper mill. Which means it smells like Ashdown……..which to me smells like brussel sprouts!

I am also lending a hand to my friend Patrick Wright to help him stuff goodie bags today after work. I believe in karma so when your friends are in need why not help if you can?! Karma is also a reason why I try to participate in surveys, that and I feel like it will end up benefiting more people if the company/product knows what’s wrong or what people are looking for!

I might have some exciting news coming up…..but you’ll have to wait til Halloween to find out. Not too much further!

OH!!! And I would like to wish Dr. Roark a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I hope you’re having the best day ever!
