I can't look away for a second!!

Presley is 10 and a half months old. She is crawling and standing... She is a mess and into EVERYTHING! She is very inquisitive... which essentially is a nice way of saying nosey:) Her new thing is emptying everything out.. purses, diaper bags, drawers, cabinets, boxes.. you name it! If I walk out of the room for a second, Presley tears into anything she can get her chubby little hands on. Here she is in action:)

Need for acceptance..

I am going to preface this post by saying this is not a woe is me..poor me, no one loves me, post! This is something that I have struggled with for years that I feel like finally the light bulb has clicked on for me! Maybe this will encourage people that have felt inadequate at some point in their life. I have moved around a lot in my life... I am 26 and if I were to do some quick addition I have moved.. roughly 12 times. I am a friendly person, so I don't have a problem making friends... just making them stick around:) In most aspects of my life I have a "I don't care if you like me or not so deal with it" kind of attitude until it comes to my friends. I think a lot of my insecurities stem from high school. I had a rough time in high school with some mean girls that at one point had been my best friends. They just turned on me one day.. I went from having a great group of close friends, to being totally alone. Because of that experience I really want people to like me! I know that there is nothing wrong with that.. UNTIL... my identity and self worth is wrapped up in my friends and how "others" make me feel. I try SO hard to be a good friend, but it never seems to be enough. I am the person that the people I consider to be my best friends don't consider me to be theirs. People like me for a while.. then they move on... It makes me never feel good enough. The other night I was lying in bed, sad, wishing I had a friend that liked me as much as I like them.. when it HIT me! I should not be looking to friends for acceptance and self worth. God is the only One that will never disappoint me and will ALWAYS love me! It is nice to have friends and be liked, but I don't have to fall apart when I don't feel loved or appreciated, b/c the only person that can fill that void in me is God! NOt to mention, Satan knows my weaknesses and plays on those. I am sure a lot of what I feel is in my head.. So i have decided.. as of today... Satan will no longer make me feel worthless b/c God thinks I'm priceless!

Presley's first flight!

Last week Presley and I flew to Arkansas for Rachel's (one of my best friends from college) wedding. It was Presley's first time flying and I was super anxious about it b/c it was going to be just the two of us. BT was not there to help out or to pawn Presley off on when she starting getting fussy on the plane. (I am not a fan of dirty looks from strangers!) but she did great! No problems... She was all in the business of the person next to us... But can you blame her... The airlines practically has you on eachothers lap! We flew into Little Rock and hit the ground running.... Lingerie shower, hotel, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, bed..wake up, bridesmaid luncheon, get ready, pictures, wedding, reception, bed... Home! Crazy!! But SO much fun! It is always amazing and such a blessing to see my friends. The only bad thing is... Once I see them I forget how much I miss them... And it makes it even harder to go home. However they are the types of friends that I know we will be in eachothers lives forever! I love y'all!!
