Happy Birthday Dusty!!

Today my youngest cousin Dusty turned 24! He and his wife live in Ft. Worth but they were in town this weekend so some of the family got together to celebrate! We ate, rode four wheelers, opened presents, and of course played with the kids! It was good to see everyone .

I was "tagged" by friends to play the following game.
Since I am a rule-follower, here are the rules:

1. I have to post these rules before I give you the facts.

2. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.

3. People who are tagged need to write their own blog (about their eight things) and post these rules. (**if you’re a non-blogger, you can email them!)

4.At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

5. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

All Mine are Random!

Random Info #1: I love the fall! There is just something about it....I love the first day I feel a change in the air. Mid September and October are my favorite months. I like it when the leaves change colors and are still on the trees. The temperature is usually just right and the cold weather isn't here yet!

Random Info #2: I actually like going to sporting events. I love football in the fall, and baseball in the spring. It is relaxing to me to go to a baseball game in the afternoon and just chill and watch people. I went to 6 Major League Baseball games in 6 days this summer. It was awesome!!

Random Info #3: I watch Good Morning America every morning. I feel so informed before I even leave the house!

Random Info #4: In the past year I have started running. Well, actually it is more of a jog than a run! I love the way I feel afterwards.... My day is better and I feel more energized! I hope I can jog the rest of my life!

Random Info #5: When I wash my hair, I wash, rinse, then REPEAT! Most of my college friends think it is unnecessary to repeat, but a few of us are sticking to it! I promise I have better hair when I repeat!! (Erin will agree)

Random Info #6: I love to ride in the car when it is just me and my three little cousins. They are 5,4, and 2. I guess I like it most beacause I have their full attention for once. They say the sweetest things! We talk about everything from 4 wheelers and mud to baseball to what they already know about God. The things they tell me are priceless.

Random Info #7: I love people, in general. I truly like to watch and listen to people. I enjoy getting to know someone I have never met. I have learned that everyone has a "story", and I like to find it out. I ask a lot of questions, but only because I truly care about the answers people give me.

Random Info #8: I really want to make a difference in my students lives this year. I want to teach them more than history...I hope to teach them things they can take with them and use for the rest of their lives.

I wasn't tagged by anyone specific so I tag only those I know who have a blog: Dayle, Erin, Emily, Julie, Meg, Amber, Scarlett, and Lauren!

Finally, I have a blog!!

Well, I created a blog! I read each of my college friends entries daily so I decided it was time to have my own! Erin Parker talked me into it and I am glad that I finally did it. I hope to keep in better touch with friends and family and let them know what is going on in my life! I will try to post as often as I can, but my life is not very entertaining!!
