Things That I Love...

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Had a fellow BLC team member post a blog like this earlier, and I liked it so much that I decided to do one myself...

Things that I love...

My loving hubby...
we will celebrate our 10th anniversary this NYE!

My wonderful boys... who agreed to "retake" this pic for me...
Back row: stepson Danny (20 --› 28)
Middle row: son Aaron (15 --› 23); stepson Chasse (16 --› 24)
Bottom row: stepson Caleb (14 --› 22)

My "baby", Lambchop... a Morkie (Maltese / Yorkie) that I rescued from a shelter almost 12 yrs ago...

My "new" pups, Chewy & Chunk... these 2 are brothers (yes, from the same litter, believe it or not) that my youngest stepson's dogs (mom - yellow lab & dad - daschund / blue heeler mix) had last Thanksgiving...

The girls I call my friends... (L to R)
1. Twila is my true BFF - the closest thing I will ever have to a sister
(we were born together on an Army base, grew up together, went to school & church together, were in each other's weddings, and are godmothers to each other's kids)
2. Shauna is my work friend - she's young enuf to be my "adopted" daughter, but she's the kinda friend you can share anything with
3. Kelly is my close college friend - we met when attending different levels of nursing school (me - RN, her - LPN) and became instant friends, and she's the crazy friend who's great to party with (and also shares my love of NASCAR!)

Last, but certainly not least, is my dad... I love that he & I have grown so much closer since my mom passed away, and enjoy every single minute that I get to spend with him. I was always a "Daddy's Girl" growing up, but consider myself even more so now!

For all of these people & fur-babies, I consider myself truly BLESSED!!!
