Day 27: A picture of you and a family member


Me and my brother back in the day :)

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 21-26


Day 21: A picture of your favorite night


Yes, of course, back to NYC! This was such an amazing night because we went to see Wicked then to Rockefeller Center to look at the city. It was a breathtaking scene!

Day 22: A picture of something you wish you were better at


I've never really tried, but it would be awesome to be able to sew. I would make clothes left and right which of course would save me money!

Day 23: A picture of your favorite book


I go back and forth with my favorite book. I don't really have one :/. I read quite a bit so it's hard to pick just one! As of right now, I would have to say that The Green Mile was one of my favorites.

Day 24: A picture of something you wish you could change


This is an odd one. I don't really know of anything that I would like to change. Maybe my hair color? I would love to have more of a reddish tint for some reason.

Day 25: A picture of your favorite day


So I'm just going to pretend that it says days...I would definitely say that my favorite days include UGA football games! I love hanging out with everyone before the game and then celebrating after when they win. Such fun times!

Day 26: A picture of something that means a lot to you


Family, again :)

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 20

Day 20: A picture of some place you would love to travel


If you don't remember this post, there are so many place I would love to travel. I guess the place that would be on the top of that list though is Ireland. I have just always dreamed of going there! And one day, I will :)

4.19.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 14-19


Day 14: A picture of someone you could never imagine your life without

Mi madre of course :)

Day 15: A picture of something you want to do before you die

It's a little strange, but I would love to see a whale jump out of the water in front of me one day. I don't know why, but it seems like it would be such a cool experience!

Day 16: A picture of someone who inspires you

My entire family inspires me in many different ways!

Day 17: A picture of something/someone who's made a big impact on your life lately

School lately has had a very large impact on my life/future. I've been thinking about where I want to live when I'm done, what I want to do with my life, and who I want to work with. Being in 3 service learning classes this semester has left me with a more specific age group I want to work with when I'm done with school and it has also let me see that social work maybe the right career path. I've been thinking of clinical social work and getting my masters in that so I would still end up in the hospital, but there are other things that I still have to think about!


Day 18: A picture of someone who is like a sister/brother to you

I lived with them the past 2 years, I've definitely had emotion breakdowns with both of them and I definitely consider both of them close enough to be sisters. :)

Catie is also in this category!

Day 19: A picture of you when you were little

 I totally rocked that outfit.

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 13


Day 13: A picture of your favorite band/artist


A few years ago, I would have said Rascal Flatts hands down, but now this is a little harder! I wasn't sure who to choose so I'll just make a list:

Stars
James Morrison
Rascal Flatts
Lady Antebellum
Mumford & Sons
Joshua Radin

Out of those though, I guess I would still have to choose Rascal Flatts since I have all of their cds and could probably tell you the words to the majority of their songs, it's just a harder decision now!

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 12


Day 12: A picture of something you love


I want to go to there.

4.11.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAYS 9, 10, 11


Day 9: A picture of the person who has gotten you through the most


Of course this is my mom :) She is always willing to listen and put up with my crap and I love her for that!

Day 10: A picture of the person you do the silliest things with


This picture is a little blurry, but I still think it's pretty funny. I was looking through pictures of me and Sara and I couldn't find many serious ones so I think she deserves this title :)

Day 11: A picture of something you hate

HATE HATE HATE. DOUBLE HATE. LOATH ENTIRELY!
(anyone for a Grinch quote? anyone?)

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 8

Day 8: A picture of something that makes you laugh


Every time I see this picture, I smile. I love the fact that Mom, Weyman, and Jackson are posing for the picture while the rest of us are just goofing off. They had no idea!

4.07.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 7


Day 7: A picture of your most treasured item


This is the ring that I got from my mom on my 16th birthday. I remember looking all over the mall to try and find a ring that was exactly what I wanted and I found it! I never go a day without it and I would feel so weird if I didn't have it on!

4.06.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 6


Day 6: A picture of a person you'd love to trade places with for a day


Idina Menzel has a fantastic stage, singing, and television career. Although, I would never have the guts to do any of that, it's nice to dream! PLUS she was my favorite guest star on Glee :)

4.05.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 5


Day 5: A picture of your favorite memory


Graduating high school was definitely one of my favorite memories. It was such an accomplishment and it led to attending UGA and soon starting my career!

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 4


Day 4: A picture of something you'll never forget


Yeah, yeah. I bet you're all wondering when these NYC pictures will stop, but hey! This is truly something that I will never forget! It was such an amazing trip and seeing Wicked was the highlight. I got goosebumps, I laughed, I came close to tears, and it was such an awesome experience.

4.03.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 3


Day 3: A picture of the cast from your favorite show


This was a very hard decision to make. But I decided to go with the show that I've seen the most and that I can relate every situation back to :) Between all of my favorite shows (Will & Grace, Grey's, 30 Rock, and Friends), this is the that I've watched over and over again at least 10 times. It never gets old!

4.02.2011

30 DAY CHALLENGE: DAY 2


Day 2: A picture of you and the person you're closest to


I can't pick just one person so I picked 3! Catie, Kayla, and Sara are the people who I am the closest with and I can't imagine not being friends with them! I've known Catie and Sara since freshman year of high school and we all met Kayla freshman year of college. This picture was taken toward the end of freshman year when we were still in the dorm...I don't quite know what our poses are all about though.
