Ben and I will be leaving for NYC in 15 days!! We have spent the past few nights outlining where we want to go and you know me and my list making! I basically have a list made for what I want to do each day. If you have been and have any suggestions about where I should go please let me know!!! I have these places on my list so far: Fifth Avenue, Greenwich Village, Central Park, Rockefeller Center, SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown and I also want to go to Serendipity!!!

Top 3 Thursday: Biggest Fears

This one was super difficult for me because it really put into perspective the things that I truly am afraid of. I think all of us girls are afraid of spiders, snakes, heights, etc. but I am thinking more along the lines of:

#3 biggest fear is drowning
Even though as a little girl I had all of my birthday parties at the YMCA where my oldest brother taught swimming lessons and I jumped off of the high dive; I have a severe fear of drowning. I know how to swim but for some reason it just scares me to think about it.
#2 biggest fear is guns
I never grew up in a household where my parents had guns and I certainly will never have one in my household. They scare me and they can easily hurt someone and everytime I see one I shiver.
#1 biggest fear is having my heart broken (again)
Being only 24 years old, I have had my heart broken once and it has healed but if definetly took longer than I wanted it to. I have also witnessed other members of my family have their hearts broken along with some of my closest friends. Being hurt emotionally is something that happens to us but over time we deal with it and in the end it only makes us stronger.
Wow, I feel like this was uber depressing.....maybe its because I woke up to rain and not sunshine.

When it rains it pours...........

My life recently had a new curve ball thrown at it and I am trying to adjust and roll with the punches. I am not ready to talk about all of the events that have taken place and I know that I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for who are so supporting throughout it all. I also have a wonderful boyfriend that has been right there beside me the entire time.

With that being said, I want to share with you a song that Sushannah sent me to bring me some encouragement and it truly brought tears to my eyes. However, it also reminded me that I need to know that God is there for me and even it situations like these when you wonder why these events must take place He is there with you through out it all. Thanks Sus for being an amazing best friend!! I love you!

Third Day- When the rain comes

I have also been listening to Hillsong United-From the Inside Out. This song always brings me peace after a long stressful day and reminds me to casts all my cares upon Him.

"In my heart, in my soul, I give you control, consume from the inside out."

I Peter 5:7 "Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you."

Top Three Thursday on Friday- That's how I roll :)

So I got really busy yesterday with being out of town for work and almost missed doing this and its better to do it a day late than never, right?!?! :)

So this week is.......................

I am choosing to go with all material things since my most prized possession that I cannot live without is my family and my sweet dog, Chloe!

3. Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm- An ultimate staple and this stuff can be found in my purse, in my make-up bag and on my bedside table to ensure I am never without it!!!

2. My Blackberry which most people commonly refer to as a crackberry which in turn in true since the thing is super addictive............I mean its not a iPhone but I have apps just like all the iPhone people and the most important thing is texting and receiving picture messages of my favorite nieces and nephews and yes my phone is enclosed in a pink silicone cover. I mean I had to have something pink. :)

1. SHOES- I mean who knows me and doesnt know my obsession for shoes. Perfect example, last weekend I went out of town for two night and took 7 pairs of shoes. I have over 200 shoes and yes they have their very own closet! There is nothing like a pair of heels! Flip flops are also great but you can keep your flat shoes because I do NOT want them! I think my obsession all started when I was a kid because Mom tells me I walked on my tip toes everywhere. I was practicing for my heels. :) Before I die, I would like to own at least one pair of Christian Louboutins! I know they are really expensive but I just want them and yes I really do want the pink glittery ones ($595) for anyone who wants to get them for me for my birthday. :) Maybe I will wear them with my wedding dress; however, I am feeling cowboy boots for my reception! :)

A little added shoe tip for those of you who don't know: Christian Louboutins are famous for their red soles! All of their shoes have them!
