My cousins got me some gift cards (perfect for me as I'm unemployed) as well as a mat stack book for scrapbooking. And my aunt got me a bag from her recent trip to New York.
Gifts aren't just material things...They're a way that you show someone you care and I love them. What do you think of gifts?

So don't forget to head into the doctor and get your yearly check ups! Find out more about the check-ups you need with the graphic from Oscar Insurance.
PS...Sorry if the graphic is a little small. I'm still trying to figure out my new computer and that occasionally means that I can't figure out how to make things bigger or smaller...I'll get the hang of it eventually I suppose. If you're interested, you can check out more on Oscar's health insurance services if you're in the NY and NJ areas!
On another note, you should be seeing more of me around here. I'm still getting settled in at home and trying to figure out a bit of a routine and so far that routine has not included blogging. I have a lot of work to do around this house so that I can make all my crap fit inside of it. So maybe I'll just blog about it. We'll see!
So don't panic if you don't hear much from me. Life is just a challenge when it's constantly changing, and unfortunately, sometimes something must go. For me, blogging may have to be put on the shelf for a few weeks.
Please don't cry.

4. France. I have taken years of french and I just feel like it would be so cool to go there and see the Eiffel Tower and try my best to talk to people en francais.
5. Washington DC. I love history. Like love it. I would especially like to see the Smithsonian and the Declaration of Independence.
6. Nashville. Because Bluegrass.
7. New York City. I have been to New York once, but it was only for a day when we had a little accidental trip there when I missed a connecting flight to Italy in High School.
8. London. Harry Potter. Big Ben. Shakespeare. The Thames. Kings and Queens.
There are a lot of places in the world that I feel that I must see before my time on Earth is up. Hopefully I'll be able to make at least a few of these things happen. I've learned in the past few weeks that nearly anything is possible if you want it bad enough.

+I bought some new shoes a couple days ago at the Vans Outlet store...First of all, they were ony $14. That fact alone could make them my favorite...But they're also the most comfy shoes I've ever put on. They're called Surf shoes and they have some foamy inserts for the inside of the shoes and basically they rock.
+ Right now is my favorite time of year. It's just something about the newness of Spring that puts a big, happy smile on my face. It helps that I'm also moving home to be with my wonderful family and I'm finally finished with this semester this month!
+My final Friday Favorite is The Railsplitters. I seriously cannot stop listening to their new album. I recommend it to peple who like music of all types.

Basically, I have always just wanted be them...I think that my sister Megan can understand that kind of dream. For a while, the dream sort of just...dropped of the earth. I was busy doing other things and I stopped actively pursuing my dream of becoming a Dixie Chick. Through out the past few months, though, my musical fire has been reignited and thus the Dixie Chick Dream has resurfaced as well.

I am so very blessed to have these two humans as my sisters.
Alexis and I are a few years apart, so we were in middle school and high school together. We basically did everything together. Now, we're all grown up. She's a wife and a mom, she's a full time student, and she works a full time job. Basically...She's my hero. I don't know how she does it. I guess she just learned from the best. Our mom.
Miss Megan is a little Bluegrass Diva. Some where between my high school graduation and now she just became this amazing musician with more ambition than I have ever known. She's basically turning into the musician that I always wanted to be and I am completely jealous of her dedication to the craft.
This year she's taking on some great musical responsibilities and she's learning and growing into an adult that I completely respect...It's pretty hard to see her as anything but my baby sister though...
I feel like I'm the luckiest middle sister in the world to have grown up between these two. Sometimes we fight. We don't always get along perfectly, but they will always be my sisters and forever my best (and first) friends.
