One Less


I just saw this video and I had to share it...

One Less by Matthew West (The Story Behind The Song) from emicmg on Vimeo.



I just love everything he says. Not everyone is called to physically adopt a child, but as followers of Christ we are called to help the orphans & that's what this song is all about. I know the Lord has called me to adoption...in whatever way he sees fit, whether it be by physically adopting a child or just supporting others financially/emotionally who choose to adopt. I have several friends and neighbors and family members that have adopted children & it just makes my heart SO happy :-)

My sweet cousin, Macie Jade from China


Adam's cousin's Libby & Josh..From Florida and Russia


& my neighbor's daughter...Evyn from Ethiopia

W.I.L Wednesday!



I'm linking up with Jamie again this week for What I'm Loving Wednesday!!

Well, it's FINALLY starting to feel like fall down here in Georgia and I am LOVING it!






Me & Adam this time last year at the Luke Bryan concert!



I am LOVING that I am going wedding dress shopping with my sister-in-law tonight! Her and my brother are going to renew their vows and have a big wedding on their one year anniversary (In April) because they didn't get to have one since the baby was coming and everything.

I am LOVING that I am leaving for Colorado on Friday morning! My dad and I are flying out at 10a.m. and spending the day in Denver.. then we're going back to Boulder for the game on Saturday. Then on Sunday we're going on a hike/bike tour through the mountains ((I'm very nervous about this..I'm not a very big outdoorsy girl, but I'll do it for my dad..ha!)) Then we're flying back to ATL on Monday.

I am LOVING that Adam will be in Colorado too! :-)

I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!!

I have some curtains hanging up now but I don't have an updated picture!

Link up at Kelly's Korner and show off your master bedroom :-)

Hope everyone has a great weekend..

busy bee!

I have been BUSY BUSY BUSY!

pictures from the last week or so...

I have been enjoying spending lots & lots of time with my friends! AKL has been SO busy lately (last semesters of college are supposed to be easy, but not for him!)





I love my friendies :-)


CG went to her 2nd UGA tailgate this past weekend.. Looking so cute in her new UGA pillowcase dress. Too bad the dawgs didn't look at good as CG did...

The game was a heart breaker.


This girl is a smiling machine lately! There's NOTHING better in the world then seeing this...........


& to add to a great week.. I got my history test back (The one I stressed..lost sleep..freaked out..got sick..over) & I am proud to say I was only one of FOUR A's in the whole class! NOW that makes for a happy girl!

Going over to my parent's house tonight for some Ranch Chicken (my fav!) & then out to Mexican with Adam and his roomies (I guess boys don't call them roomies, but whatever...)

AKL is leaving tomorrow for Mississippi for the Georgia game (if you haven't noticed..he goes to EVERY game, home and away!) & I get to watch the pups!!

AND for the best news of all.. one week from tomorrow we will be heading west to Boulder Colorado for the GA/CO game.. I am BEYOND excited!! I'm going with my dad but Adam will be out there too :-)

Umm..how amazing is this stadium?!?



Sorry for such a long post!!

Old Saturdays

This is what my Saturdays used to be consumed of.
Oh how I wish I could go back and do this again!!!

(be sure to turn my player off at the bottom)

Living room tour & weekend plans!




Today at Kelly's Korner is Show Us Where You Live Friday!

This week is living rooms

Here's our college apartment living room..........




These are my only pictures because it literally is so small there was nothing else to take a picture of!
We love it though & it is a nice apartment for college! (I'd say the best in Athens!)

************************************************

Tomorrow The Dawgs take on the Arkansas Razorbacks...
I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty nervous about this one.
Coming off a loss to South Carolina could be a good thing or it could be a bad thing..
We will just have to wait & see :-)

Also tomorrow, after the game, I am going to my cousin's going away party.
She just graduated from UGA this summer & is leaving to go to Spain for 9 months to teach English to elementary school students!
I'm so happy for her & am so glad she gets to have this experience.


On Sunday Adam's parents are coming to Athens :-)
We're going to church & then having a get together with the rest of his family at his cousin's house.
I can't wait to see everyone!!

Hope y'all have a great weekend :-)

GO DAWGS!!!!!!

Just randomness

Last weekend we got free tickets to the circus in town...




So we dressed CG up and off we went....



Only to find out that in order to use our free tickets we had to be there an HOUR before the circus started. We had the option to buy tickets, but we only went in the first place because we got free tickets...so we didn't want to pay because we weren't even sure how Carolyne-Grace would react to all the noise...



Baby girl was not too happy with our decision to leave...



But she was alright when we told her we were going to Rafertys for dinner instead...



She was so good and enjoyed herself...



Missing my Dad and A...



I love living so close to my parents and brother & sister-in-law :-)

*******

Looking forward to finishing this week [it's been a rough one]
I have a huge test on Thursday & a lot of assignments due.

Praying the Lord will keep me calm & focused :-)

*******

I'll be doing my game day outfit post tomorrow for this weekend's game!

Thankful Thursday



1. For starters I am SO thankful that tomorrow is Friday! Fridays for me=NO CLASS & babysitting Carolyne-Grace :-)

2. I am thankful that I am ALMOST done with the crazy amount of assignments I have due this week.

3. I am thankful that UGA plays again this Saturday..even though it's not in Athens..and Adam is leaving for the weekend to be at the game in South Carolina.

4. I am thankful for my job.

5. I am thankful that I only have 4 semesters of college left after this one!!!!!!!

6. I am thankful for my relationship with the Lord. It can be hard to be a college student and balance the demands of life but I know I always have Jesus and that makes all the stress a little bit easier to deal with :-)

7. I am thankful for my LIFE & everything about it..The people that are in my life right now are amazing and I am so thankful for my friendships, family, and my Adam :-)




John Mayer!



The JM concert was..AMAZING!!!

This is me with Lindsey, her twin brother Lance & his girlfriend Brooke

Blessings!




1. This sweet man has been such a blessing from day 1... we're going through that time in our relationship when things are becoming a little too comfortable & I praise God for helping us relight that flame :p


2. Another huge blessing is that I got a promotion at work this week! I won't be making any more money but it's a step up from just being an assistant.. I'm excited to start my new tasks next week and be more independent at work. I enjoy working for such a great company that is flexible with me, as I try my best to balance part time work and being a full time student.

3. My best friend Lindsey and I are going to the John Mayer concert tomorrow. It's such a blessing to have such a sweet friend. We have been friends for a LONG time & she is just the greatest!!!



Link up with Natalie!

Top 2 Tuesday!



Top 2 favorite things about fall

1. FOOTBALL...FOOTBALL..FOOTBALL..
I have been going to University of Georgia games since I was practically born.





2. Boots & Scarves!
I love summer--but living in GA it gets sooooo hot.. so by this time of year I am ready for the cooler weather to start rolling in so I can start wearing my boots & scarves!

Labor Day weekend!

What a FUN weekend!

Friday I went out for two of my friends 21st birthdays!



Me & one of my old roommates, Dana.. [& some crazy boys in the background]



After a late night we were up at 5:30 getting ready for the big game! Mimosas were the key to success that morning :-)

The UGA game was great..we won!

I love Saturdays in Athens.

Nothing beats tailgating & going to the game with friends and family.

I didn't get to see Adam much on Saturday because he works for UGA Athletics & had to be on the field the whole game :(

That's him in the back ground clapping!





CG went to her first UGA tailgate...looking pretty darn cute if I do say so myself!





Me & my best friend, Lindsey!





Me & my dad at the game



Today we celebrated Labor Day out on the lake...





The sweet family :-)



I love spending time with my family & I love holiday weekends!
I don't have classes again tomorrow thanks to furlough days :-)

Looking forward to the John Mayer concert on Wednesday with my best friend, Lindsey!!
