Lots of Special People

Dear Readers, You all blew me away with your comments and love on Tuesday's post. I read every single one, teary-eyed, and just felt overwhelmed by it all. Your words and prayers seriously mean so much to me. I already knew you all were awesome, but it just proved to me -once again- how amazing the blog community is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Dear Jared, You are my rock! Thank you for making every day something to look forward to. I love you and can't believe we're approaching our 2-year anniversary already. Cliche as it may be, time really does fly when you're having fun!

Dear Family, You are THE best ever. Love you all so much.

Dear Indianapolis Pacers, HOLLLLA!!!! I'm working on snagging some playoff tickets for the next round. Lebron, who?!

Dear Kristen, Just so you know, I can't get your cake mix cookie bar recipe out of my brain. I have a feeling I'll be making a batch this weekend!

  16. FAQ in my life every day: Why do Bengal Erin and I not live closer to each other?

    And then I cry. And then I text you to say I love you a whole lot :) Muuuuah!

  17. Hi!! I'm a new follower. I have seen your button on various pages and decided to check you out today. The "football" part is what caught my attention. My husband and I are die hard Ravens fans...I know, I know, that might be a conflict of interest seeing as how it seems you are Bengals fans. Truth is, I'm ok with it. Ever since you guys came on Hard Knocks we have really liked you. Plus, you got our boy Marvin!!

    I just read the adoption story. My best friend from college and her husband are in the process of adopting as well. They are both 29 adopting a 12 year old boy. He is living with them now, but, as you know, nothing is official until the "process" is done.

    I'm looking forward to reading more about you. You already seem like a cool chick, for sure.

    Come check me out if you want.


  18. Thank you for the birthday love!!! It was the best day! Butttt it makes me sad that we didn't have both our birthdays together! Next year, we're making it happen :)

  19. That first picture kills me! I totally just found you on instagram :)

  20. I'll be totally jeals if you make to Indy for a game ;) I was the biggest Pacer fan back in the day. The day Reggie retired is the day I stopped watching the NBA. Sad day for me. I did watch a little bit of the game the other night. Proud of my home team!

  21. When I come up to Ohio next we better be getting together!

    Who is going to win the Super Bowl this year?
    If you had a different job, what would you be?

  22. Queen James is going DOWN!!! If you get tickets to the game let me know...you will drive right past my exit on 74...juuuust sayin ;)


Thanks SO much for taking the time to read and comment on my blog! I read each one and love to respond and chat with you! :)
