5 Things Tag

Well remember when I promised that I would stop being a part-time blogger? Well I kinda lied. SO SORRY! On Monday I had two pretty major blessings happen - both of them good and both I have been praying A LOT about lately. Work life is really busy right now, but in a great way. Basically I'm just a blog slacker, but that's okay. I've been trying to spend less time on social media and quality time with my peoples and "quiet" time with God.
 
One of my favorite people on this planet, Jordan, tagged me in her 5 Things post and I love these fun little things so here you go! These are the questions she gave me to answer:
 
1. What artist/song/album do you have on repeat right now? 
Not sure if I can pick just ONE, but I do have a new obsession.
My new found loves - Walker McGuire - if you like country, check them out!

 
2. If you could see one artist/band perform before you die, who would it be?
Well top of that list would be Luke Bryan and Justin Timberlake and I've seen both of them before and will be seeing them both again in the next couple of months!! I would have to say I would love to see Elton John, John Legend, and Journey before I die.
 
3. What is one thing you have worked towards this year? Would you say it was a success?
I have worked so hard this whole year to find myself again. I would say it's been a huge success. I know this will be repetitive, but through the support of the people in my life who love me and my close relationship with God, I am in the most amazing place these days. So thankful for a year of growth! Psalms 46:5
 
 4. If you could go back in time, which age would you want to repeat? Why?
22!!!! This was my favorite age. I was working my first real job, had my first apartment on my very own (without roomies), had a perfect boyfriend, and life was carefree. Skye threw me a huge surprise party for my birthday that year, and bought me our first Pomeranian, Roxy. It was such a fun year! We really lived it up and made the most of being completely independent.
 
5. If money weren't an issue, would you live somewhere else? Where?
This is a toughie. I want to say YES absolutely. I would love to live somewhere else, but Knoxville will always be my home. My ideal place to live would be a nice house, out in the country on my very own Norris Lake. That's always been my dream.

Ok... I'm now hooked on that song! I'm so excited to be seeing JT with you in 22 days!!! I still love that verse! I think you've done an amazing job this year! We all slip sometimes, but watching you work and grow has been such a blessing!

PS: Let me know when you build that home, I'll be building right across the lake! To live on a lake has always been my dream too!

Elle Sees said...

i don't have a favorite age, so i'm hoping that means it just hasn't happened yet! :)

Number four hit me. I will tell you why.

I've watched your grow over this last year since your engagment with Skye was called off. I remember my own heart breaking as I read your words. But I'm not kidding. You are such a different person than you were a year ago, and I only see little bits of you on the internet.

But where I was caught was when you reminisced happily of your time with Skye. Many people hold on the the bitter feelings when they are broken. Most people don't leave relationships like that with fondness. And to be able to see you say such great things about a memory, that just shows how amazing you are and how far you've come. Proud of you Nik. <3

I would love to live on a lake too!
