5 on a Friday!



{ONE}

Let's discuss Courtney Loves Dallas...anybody watch this on Bravo last night? You know I'm a Bravo freak so I'll jump on board with practically anything they air. I really loved Most Eligible Dallas, which is how we all got introduced to Courtney Kerr. I was really rooting for her and Matt Nordgren! She's just a doll. But honestly I was a little let down by the show last night. Hopefully it will pick up as the season goes on.

RIP Nelson Mandela - The world truly lost a warrior yesterday. Such an amazing man, with big ideas and truly believed in making this world a better place for the sake of humanity and not selfish reasons.
 
{THREE}
The Band Perry - Don't Let Me Be Lonely
I love this song! Did you see them with Fall Out Boy on CMT Crossroads a couple weeks ago? So good! I love that Crossroads show and how they mix up music styles. Fun Fact of the day: My brother is completely in love with Kimberly Perry. Most of the girls he dates resemble her.
 
{FOUR}
For your viewing pleasure....the man I will be getting cozy with in 9 days (just go with it...in my head we will be getting quite cozy) I am thankful for JT for rescuing sexy and bringing it back to us.
 
{FIVE}
I have some exciting life news to share with you guys! I am getting baptized this Sunday (for the 2nd time in my life). The first time I was baptized I was like 11 years old. I was in 6th grade and had only just kissed a boy. I hadn't experienced any real tragedy or heartache, and definitely hadn't made many mistakes. Then I grew up, church began to fall lower on my priority list. I still had faith, but spent about 11 years out of church completely. I wouldn't call it a completely terrible time in my life, but there was always something missing. Enter a heartbreak last November and I tried every single way I could think of to fill this void inside myself. Since Feb this year I've been going to my current church. I absolutely love it. If you've been a reader around here for any length of time then you've seen me struggle and you've heard me talk about getting back my personal relationship with God along the way. I have definitely found my place and through being single and focusing on myself this year, I've been able to further grow my relationship with God. It's been absolutely life changing for me! I will still stumble in my walk of faith, I will still feel sad some days, I will still have a beer, I will still date, but my priorities are different. Someone who has been a true spiritual mentor to me will be baptizing me and I cannot wait to share my story with all my friends & family!
 
Happy Weekend loves!!

Most importantly, congratulations on getting baptized this weekend! That is so awesome! Very proud of you! :) And on a less important note, I LOVE Courtney too, but haven't watched the episode yet. I hope this ends up being a good show! I do know that it was supposed to air in the summer, but got pushed to now, so I'm not sure why that happened...?
