Is it that time already?!?!

Sooooo it is here...my 10 year high school reunion. I really can't believe it has been that long ago since I was roaming the halls at Winder-Barrow High School. I mean are we all really that old? Are we even old enough to have a high school reunion?

It feels just like yesterday that I was racing to class before the bell rang so I wouldn't get detention for being late...again (see I've always been late). It feels like yesterday that my only concern(s) were what am I gonna do on Friday night, I wonder if he likes me, I sure hope I don't get grounded...again, and of course just wanting to "fit in" with the "popular" & older group. Oh to go back to those four years with no "real" responsibility.

When I think back to those days I am reminded of how carefree we all were. When I think about all the fun times we had it makes me smile. And many of the memories still give me a good laugh. Then, when I think about the things that we worried about, got mad about, and fought about all I can do is laugh. To know back then what we do today I believe we all would not have worried or stressed about any of it.

As far as the reunion goes, I am really excited about seeing everyone. I know it will be such a fun night for all. Facebook has been great with allowing us all to know a little about what is going on in each others lives but it will be great to actually get to "see" everyone in person. To the people who were in charge of getting everything together...a HUGE Thank You! I can't imagine everything that went into making it all happen.

Let's take a lil trip down memory lane...

Rules of Facebook

I was listening to The Bert Show this week just like I do every morning. One of the segments was titled the Rules of Facebook which was made up by one of their interns. I thought that the rules were so good that I went back and listened to the segment again online here and decided to write them down for you to see as well. Here ya go...

Rule 1: Do not message anyone on Facebook after they have deleted you.

Rule 2: If someones relationship status changes for the worst do not comment on it. If they want you to know why they will tell you.

Rule 3: Parents do not post anything about problems you are having with your grown (16 +) children.

Rule 4: Couples do not post your problems on Facebook. Do not attack your spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend for the entire world to see.

Rule 5: Don't be disrespectful on peoples memorial sites on Facebook.

Rule 6: Don't spill the beans on Facebook. If one of your friend has recently gotten engaged or found out they are expecting and you are one of the first to know...let them be the ones to tell it, not you!

Rule 7: Do not start an argument on Facebook that you will never win. Topics include: religion, abortion, politics, etc.

Rule 8: Don't be caddy or passive aggressive in your status whether your friends with the person or not.

Rule 9: Questions as your status unless you are a public figure are pointless. Ex.: What should I have for dinner tonight? Do one really cares!

So there ya go...those were the rules that she gave everyone. After each rule she elaborated about each rule to help you better understand what she was talking about. I thought they were all pretty good. I'm curious though...can you think of any other rules that should be made when it comes to Facebook??? If so, I wanna hear them. Comment away...

8 years ago today...

we welcomed Addison McKenzie Crowe into the world. She turned our world upside down when she first arrived and it hasn't been the same since! Everyday is full of fun, laughter, smiles, with a few fits thrown in the mix every now and again. As I have watched her grow over the years it is hard for me to believe that she is becoming a young lady. She is still so very innocent and I pray that the Lord will protect her for many years to come. I can not imagine my world without my Little Bit in it. Watching her grow into the young lady she is becoming has been a great joy. Here take a look at a few pics throughout the years...

Always been silly

1st day of preschool

Always loved to dance & sing just like her mama

I love my girl!

Beautiful

I love it when she runs & jumps in my arms

Now a Big Sister

Mama

You have raised me to be the woman I am today
You cheer me on & back me up
You coach & advise
You believe in me and want only the best

You are an amazing woman
Wise beyond your years
Stronger than you know
Beautiful inside and out

I thank God for you every single day
You are my rock, my go-to, my best-friend
You are always there
I can count on you

I cherish our times spent together
Laughing, crying, and laughing some more

I can't wait until the day that You become Li-Li to my children
As I watch you with Addison and Maddox now
I know that you are exactly who God intended you to be
An excellent, fun-loving grandmother

Thank You for being someone
I can look up to and count on
A Godly woman who prays over me daily
A giving, caring, loving Mother
And my best-friend.
