Please Read This..


Just read my Sister Jennifer's post..it's very good! I really encourage everyone to go and read it!!! Especially if your like me and in that young stage of life, where you seem to waiting for the next thing..can't be satisfied...just go over there...young men...young ladies... go and check it out!

The Ernest T Bass Way of Life

I love The Andy Griffith Show...I often tell Mama how I wish life could just be like Andy Griffith!
In some ways it still is where I'm from...But I still wish and long for a life, like going fishing just as much as you can...walking down the streets in town waving at everybody you see... going to the drug store and getting an icecream... sitting on the porch late afternoons and singing and just taking time to realize how good life is.
Okay maybe I just live in a dream world, or maybe I was just born in the wrong time...
But anyway One special person I love in Mayberry is none other than Ernest T Bass!
So just to give you an idea of what kind of guy Ernest t Bass is...
First Ernest T knows how to Court his girl...
I mean who wouldn't want a guy like this?
And what's a man, if he doesn't have manners!!!


Well I know you are totally in love with him already...but this is just a glimpes of him!!! check out youtube for more Ernest T Bass...or just go'head and go crazy and buy the first season of Andy Griffith show..you know you want, too!

Pray For Sarah

Sarah and Donnie at The Crown College Sadie Hawkins Day...
I told her it was kinda weird, ''Donnie and Sarah'' you know my cousins~

Hey Ya'll this is one of my friends Sarah K.,
with her guy Donnie.
I got some pictures today,
so I thought I'd share one with ya'll.
She goes to The Crown College, me and her have been friends since I was 14.
She is so great, we were texting today(something we do alot lately) and she was just talking about going home and some things that were on her mind. So I want ya'll to be praying for her, she and all the other Crown students will be going on break for Thanksgiving... she can't go home, so she'll be going half way to her Grandma's. Pray for a safe trip!
Well I guess that's all for today...

Old Fashioned Sunday

Old Fashioned Day, a day when we look back to a simplier time... When men and ladies dressed their very best to go to church, Preacher's preached with fire, songs were song with volume and power! The Good ol' days!
I love Old Fashioned Sunday, though the service is not very different from our regular service..we are an old fashioned church every Sunday... but it just is soo neat to step back in time!!!

Basketball Season, YAY!!!!!

Hey Ya'll, yes it's finally Basketball season!!!! I love going to the games at Sarah's school, seeing old friends from elementry school, watching the guys play, and trying to do the cheers with the cheerleaders. Ah, fun times!
Last night, after I taught piano, me and Jennifer went to the first home game this year!
We met Sarah, Megan, and Everett there, and watched part of the girls game and all of the guys game...Sadly they both lost~:(
But still was a really good game, they fought hard to win...it was very stressful!
