My dear friend, Kelly, has inspired me to become a blogger! Kelly was my suitemate at OBU and I love her so much. She is probably one of the most sincerely sweet people I know, not to mention one of the funniest! We had so much fun at OBU. I think about our time there fondly and all the laughs we had. She is a riot! I don't get to see her very much anymore...only when she stops through Little Rock from time-to-time and we catch lunch with Kandi (Kelly's roommate at OBU and my other dear friend). I was so happy to get Kelly's Christmas card this year and find she had written a note letting me know I could keep up with her and Scott (Kelly's husband) through her blog. I had the best time reading it! It is so Kelly! I then told Derek I was thinking about doing a blog, secretly wondering if he would laugh at me. Derek, being the technical guy he is, thought it was a great idea and that it would be a lot of fun for us. He said he would even be interested in doing some posts himself. At first, I thought we are kind of boring and I have no idea what I will write about other than our daily life. Then I thought about my children growing up so fast. I think this will be a great way for me to capture our life as it happens. So, I guess I am doing this mainly for me, so I won't forget the funny things, the sweet things, the interesting things, the crazy things, and the wonderful things that happen when you are a blessed mom of two beautiful children. In the meantime, if friends read it and enjoy it, that's just icing on the cake! Thanks, Kelly, for inspiring me to do this and for being my friend. Hugs!
This is Kelly and me doing the "Cabbage Patch" dance in my dorm room. I can't remember for sure what we were celebrating. There is no telling!
I am only posting these pictures because I think Kelly will get a kick out of them. Kandi is first on the left and Kelly is last on the right. Notice mine and Kelly's matching gingham shorts (not planned of course) and my lovely '90's hairdo. Man, I had a lot of hair!
We REALLY need to get together soon to get some new pictures!
