I Believe...

Anyone that knows me very well knows that I LOVE LISTS.

You'll likely find a lot of my blog posts in list-form...because I believe lists are easy to follow and aren't as daunting as a big 'ole long paragraph.  Oh, and in case you haven't noticed, I also tend to use ellipses (...) on occasion all the time  {perhaps I need to do a "Grammatically Correct" post on this topic to remind myself not to overuse...but my use of ellipses is purely for style purposes, or so I tell myself}.  Anyway, on to the topic at hand:

I believe...

  • God and have faith in His plan for my life.
  • love.  Unconditional, 'til-death-do-us-part love.
  • is everything.
  • have to be a friend to have a friend.
  • ...first impressions are lasting impressions.
  • ...George Strait is, and always will be, the best entertainer on the planet.
  • ...hard work pays off in the long run, but you've got to be willing to pay your dues.
  • the Kansas Jayhawks.  Year-in and year-out, I am a fiercely loyal fan.  Rock Chalk!
  • should respond with the same method of communication the person who initiated the conversation used {i.e. don't call me to respond to a text message that I sent you}.
  • ...there is a song lyric that is applicable to every situation life may throw at you.
  • ...paying full price for something is a much better option than fighting crowds/dealing with messy stores just to get a {reportedly} good deal.
  • can never be overdressed or overeducated.
    Oscar Wilde got it right!
  • ...everything happens for a reason and if it's meant to be, it will be.
  • ...personal voicemails are a waste of time.  Caller ID essentially makes voicemail irrelevant.  This is only true in your personal life; business/professional calls still have a need for voicemail.
  • should never forget where you came from/your roots.
    The Gyp Hills of Barber County, Kansas
  •'s better to give than to receive. {not trying to be all "do-gooder"ish here...just saying that there's nothing better than seeing someone open a gift they absolutely love or leaving someone unable to find the words to express their appreciation/gratitude for something you've done.  Don't get me wrong, I love presents too!  :)}
  • ...fitted sheets are not meant to be neatly folded.
  • should maintain a savings account {that is fairly liquid} at a level sufficient to cover at least six months of general living expenses...just in case!
  • ...a bubble bath can be the cure-all for a bad day.
  • should never stop celebrating birthdays.
    Celebrating my 30th birthday with some fabulous friends!

  • ...a kind word, or a compliment, goes a long way.


Don't forget that Nashville returns tonight at 9:00 pm central time.  If you haven't been watching this series, you are SERIOUSLY.MISSING.OUT.  I highly suggest you DVR tonight's episode, but first you must catch up on Season 1 and the first half of Season 2.  I think you can watch all the past episodes online here, or you can order the DVDs here.

I'm telling you, you're going to want to get in on this drama. And the cast? Definitely not hard on your eyes....seriously pretty people!  And they can actually sing!  It's good...I promise!
