I know that this is a few days late however better late then never right! I have been a water lady since this past Thursday so needless to say I have not really been on my actually computer & what I have been on has been my phone but it has been every so often with more fun in the sun then anything! I have had such a blast this Memorial Weekend! It was great here are a few Memorial Day things I think you all will love :) Enjoy ladies! PS I hope you all had great weekends as well!
Memorial Day observed on the last Monday of May, is a day of remembering & honoring those men & women who died while serving for our country! Memorial Day was formerly known as Decoration Day. It typically marks the start of summer while Labor Day marks the end!
Many people visit the Cemeteries & memorials of their loved ones, to honor those in their life that have died due to serving our country! & I know that if you ever get the chance to see Arlington National Cemetery you will see that each grave flies an american flag to honor those fallen soldiers! Its so heartbreaking to see it all in front of your very eyes because so many have fallen & some graves only have tombstones without bodies bc some have never been found or recovered :(
Sometimes it makes me sad in a since when I see what Memorial Day now is which is filled with lake trips, beach trips, fireworks, family cookouts, & yes even Indianapolis 500! I do love all those things do not get me wrong & yes I do them, I am guilty... so throw the handcuffs on me however I do make sure to always remember & see those of my friends & family that have passed away & I take flowers & a flag to each of their graves! I make time to say how much I miss them & wish that they was still here! But I know they died for an amazing reason for helping us to stay free in America! Such brave soldiers! I love them so dearly & always will...
Remember me as your son when you used to doctor my bumps remember me playing in the dirt remember me crying when i would get hurt remember walking to get my diploma remember arguing and saying I'm gonna remember me as a man doing my job remember me , and please don't sob. I did what I had to do no matter what I was heavily trained and I fought no regrets as I am in a wonderful place Remember me when you look at my purple heart in your glass case.
Red, white and blue For those we knew Who marched off to war. We honor them now And show them how Their bravery we can't ignore.
Heroes of war, They were so much more, Father and brother and friend. Flags at half mast For those of the past To whom our gratitude we send.
We place flowers on the graves Of those who were brave, We salute them far and wide. Seeing poppies galore While our hearts soar, remembering proudly those who have died.
Since i have spend my time on the lake which started Thursday night & it does not end until Monday night I decided to post some pretty summer pictures! I am in love with summertime & it never last long enough sadly :(
Normally I link up with sweet Ashley however I am a day late so I am sure that by now her link has closed. I decided to go ahead & post this anyways. A day late is better then not at all right? Any hoo here comes my sweet letters!
Dear Friday...you was an amazing day! Thank you so much for letting me have so much fun :)
Dear Sunburn... on my rosy red cheeks you hurt please go away! I do not like you not at all. I rather hate you quite a lot. I am thankful though that you only burned my cheeks & nothing more :) So I guess thank you for being semi sweet!

You have been oh so much & I still get to play on you all weekend long :) I so far have earned a pretty little bruise from you however I do not blame you it was not your fault lucky you. I have loved getting to wake board, knee board, & tube on you! However, by the end I am wore out from you & I need a much needed nap :)

I would love to have you sweet ladies join my Pinterest & my bloggy world! I always love new ones :)
1.That Memorial weekend is only but a few days away & I am excited to spend it with some pretty amazing people!
2. I am loving this oh so much!Actually it may be more then love! I so wanna do this! I would cherish it for forever!
3. I am loving that my cousin is coming in this weekend to visit until Monday night that should be fun! That will call for a night out & I for one vote yes hehe! she will too :) I guess we better make the best of it because she will not be back until the wedding in August :(
4. I have tons of other things to be loving this week however , I will stop because my list would be way too long other wise lol! Hope you all ladies have tons to love :)
I am sure that you all have noticed that in one of my post I was really sad to a point when I saw so many people with tons of friends on Blog & I do not even have 50. It really bothered me because I kept asking myself what made mine worse then theirs & what could I do better to have as many as they had. Ashley reminded me to not worry about how many I had & to remember why I started it in the first place & she really put my mind to ease! I then started to remember why I started by blog almost 2 years ago. It was not to have a competition with others of who had more blog friends, it was to record my life & all things in it. It was so my blog could grow as I grew from a women in a relationship, to marriage, to wife, to husband, to kids to our lives as whole & so much more! I still do that all the time. I love my life, my family, my friends & I love my blog ladies as well & if I someday get as many as some I will be more then happy with that but I am learning to be ok with those who do follow even if its not many that just means I get to cherish them more because I do not have so many blogs to read! I guess I can turn a negative into a positive & look @ it in a good way :) I know my blogs are sometimes an every day event & at others not so much. I even know when they are insane & crazy verses right on target & making since! I just wanna say thank you for your kind, thoughtful, sweet words. It truly does make my day ten times better & I am so beyond blessed to have the blog ladies that I do! Thank you sweet girls so much.... & ps I am sorry for my ranting....
I know at times I have very random post & I am so sorry for that however, some things just do not fit into a category sadly! Sorry ladies please forgive me :) I know I have more to post today & before you ask no they are not random yay they are normal post! I will have graduation post of cousins I have been to 4 within the past week ugh crazy right! Hope you all enjoy those later so be looking for them :) love you ladies! I also have a post near & dear to my heart which Ashley helped me with so It will also be posted soon too! Thanks sweet ladies!
This is so for Crystal bc we have matching dresses & her & I still need to do a post together boo I wish we lived closer so we could do an actually picture together! I hate when I meet such great blog girls whom I become friends with & we do not live close together :( I guess that just means a trip lol! & let's just be honest trips are always nice :)
My new orange top which can be for Vols or Gators depending on which bow & accesories I use with :) love it....
Do not judge me! I had to try these little babies on they was so huge & funny that I could not resist hehe I guess that was my silly moment :)
