My true Celebrity Crush...

On a recent post, I declared John Cusack as my celebrity crush, while I do love John Cusack I felt ashamed of myself after seeing my sister, Amy, so openly declare her love for Kid Rock as her celebrity crush on her blog. As all of my close friends and family already know, my celebrity heart undeniably belongs to none other than Eminem. (Troy, don't roll your eyes, you knew this before you married me!)

While the need to declare this may seem silly to most of you, it is something that I need to do on my quest to get back to my roots and get reacquainted with myself again before I turn completely into someone else. So, Amy here I am, right beside you as you declare your love for Kid Rock, I am putting my developed embarrassment aside and declaring my love for Eminem and reclaiming a shred of myself.

While I don't listen to Eminem like I used to anymore due to the regained feelings of true peace and happiness in my life, he will always hold a special love and appreciation in my heart for being a light, yes a light, during the darkest time of my life. Thank you Eminem...
...for sharing your life
...for having so much passion
...for being a lyrical genius
...for making us laugh
...for expressing the anger that we all feel, but can't express
...for relating to all of us that know what its like to feel absence from a father, craziness from a mother, and the feeling of being at rock bottom
...for helping me to remember that despite everything that is wrong in your life you still have the only thing in the world that you need, the people that you love and would do anything for

And thank you to both Kid Rock and Eminem for still being able to keep it real and say to the world, "I'm a piece of white trash and I say it proudly!"

May we all have to courage to remember where we came from and be who we really are...

So next time you see me driving down the street with my windows down and Eminem blaring from the car, just know it's me...just being me.

Enjoy the new temporary play list...I tried to keep it as clean as possible. :)

"Where we love is home,Home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts."

We just got back from our short visit to my home, Oklahoma. We had tons of fun just hanging out with my Ganny, my cousins, and my stepdad, and his wife. Most of our time was spent eating ourselves sick at Ganny's house or all of my favorite hometown restaurants.

When we weren't eating, we were going on walks at Ganny's house, visiting Jerry's farm and worksites, spending time with my cousins (I'm so mad I didn't get any pictures with them!), meeting up with old friends, and visiting all of my old stomping grounds.

It was so nice going home and spending time with the people that mean so much to me. I am thankful for my step dad, Jerry, for giving us so many good memories and for loving us like his own kids. I am thankful to Ganny for taking care of us and giving us a stable environment and a place that will always be home.

Let the digging begin!

We had our pre-dig meeting for our new house last Friday. Here are some pics of our lot before the digging started.

We drove out there last night and they are really making progess. They should start framing next week. At this rate, they will be finished by August, we can't wait!!

My new favorite thing

I have been wanting a new phone for awhile that would be easier for texting because you guessed it, I am a textoholic. I got this new Blackberry Pearl for free, that's right, you heard me, FREE! Thank you so much Ty!! I LOVE it and I dont think I am going to get any work done today because I am just going to playing with my new toy. Now I am going to have to upgrade my cell phone plan so I can enjoy all of it's cool features!
