Story of my life...

So, tonight I was told by someone that I consider a friend that he loves me. "I love you Stacy! I really do. I've loved you since the first time I met you; I was just stupid. I didn't know what was right in front of me." To that I answered: "Story of my life" which is an OK thing to say when someone springs "I love you" on you! But it got me to thinking on my drive home. How many times in my life a guy realizes after the fact, and too late that I am a good catch and that I'm "someone you've got to get to know to love!" (Stolen from Grey's). But my new philosophy is, I don't want you to find out after the fact. I want the guy that can see it right away. I'm done giving second chances and thinking things will be different this time around. To quote my aunt Shelley: "a leopard never looses it's stripes!" I'm not going to sit and wait for the guy who has to loose me to see if I'm worth it. They guy for me is going to pray he doesn't loose me and do all he can not to, because he knows I'm worth it!

On that note, goodnight!

Stolen from Annie! :)

It's Been Awhile!

As I break out into song! For my Thursday Thirteen this week I thought I would post 13 things happening in my life since it's CRAZY at the moment! WARNING: This post is random!

1) I got a new computer! YAY! Still trying to get everything working properly on it.

2) They have found a tumor on my grandfather's brain and lung. Please keep him in your prayers.

3) My step-grandmother went into the hospital for a possible heart attack but she has fluid on her heart, so keep her in your prayers as well.

4) Class is absolutely exhausting!! We have a problem with our certain professor grading us on how she likes us!

5) My cat's sitting on my desk as I type, and he's so adorable!

6) I will never buy a computer from Best Buy again! And Geek Squad employees are pathetic, annoying, pimple-faced, losers who can't get a real job or girlfriend so they take there job as a power trip before going home to their moms or geek squad roommates where they place computer games all day while working on their acne!

7) I'm a very nice person unless you piss me off! Don't hang up the phone on me 9 times when I'm trying to contact your Geek Squad sorry behind!

8) I'm sick of self-righteous little girls who think their stuff don't stink cuz they go on mission trips every summer, then kiss the professors asses and talk and rag on their classmates. I'm sorry, that's not a Christian. I know I'm not perfect, I never claimed to be, but I also am not fake, I know who I am. I'm not gonna pretend I like you, then talk smack behind your back. I know I don't like you and you know I don't like you! (And my friends got my back!)

9) I'm loving all these commercials about "wait for sex". I think its a great message. For so long, the message was wait for sex or use a condom so you don't get an STD. Well guess what, they've finally got the message out that many people aren't getting STDs, their getting these babies they're not ready for! So maybe they'll take a hint!

10) I'm getting a DVR this weekend! I need one desperately!!


12) I've said it before, I'll say it again! I love my friends. I really do. They are such wonderful, kind, sweet people! God truly blessed me!!

13) I've got lots of homework to finish!! And I'm not doing anything about it! haha, That's not unusual!!

A pictures worth a 1000 words!

So, most everyone knows I've been on a diet for a few months. I am still losing, tho it's getting harder! But with constant support from fabulous friends and family, I've been able to do it. One other thing that keeps you going is looking at yourself in photos! The night of Emily's Bachelorette party we took a picture and I thought I was lookin pretty good! (My friends are so kind!)
Well, recently we went out for E's birthday and happened to take another picture in the same spot and I ended up in a similar position. WOW! Not that I'm where I need to be, but motivation to keep going.
I really appreciate everyone's encouragement and help! You all are wonderful!! 30 more-- here I go!! :)

Lemme get my boots!!

A quote from my fabulous friend E referring to our conversation tonight. In talking with her and through the events of the weekend I have come to some conclusions. And to preface this blog, my mind is everywhere; therefore, my post tonight will be as well.

The first thing that is present on my mind is how wonderful my friends are. I was born an only child, but God has granted me with the people in my life that are closer than friends, they've become my sisters! Elizabeth and Christina are my saving grace, my good time out, my family, my girls!

Todd Sutton preaches that if you have 5 people that you can call in the middle of the night and they would be there for you, you are blessed. And these are people that aren't your family! On the top of that list is of course, E and C, but then God has blessed me with Lambda Theta Chi. I am very lucky to have these girls to call my sisters. "From the outside looking in you can't understand it; from the inside looking out, you can never explain it!"

The next thing on my mind is something that I have known for a while, but have decided tonight to finally take to heart-- If I have to explain to a guy why I won't sleep with him, he's not the right guy for me!! Too often in my relationships I find myself saying I'm not ready, I don't want to, I want to be in love. The truth is, I don't have to explain myself at all, and if I was with the right guy; he wouldn't be asking in the first place. Why can't my head keep up with my heart. Or maybe its the other way around. My heart needs to catch up to my head. I know in my heart what I wnat in a guy. I want a guy that loves God more than he loves me, because in turn he will have the love and respect for me that God wants me to have. For some reason, however, I can't seem to remember those things when I'm letting my emotions take over myself and when I become to consumed with having a boyfriend. I need to stop seeking the attention from guys and start putting the attention on God. Then perhaps I wouldn't have to worry about explaining myself, being talked to disrespectfully and being put in situations that I don't want to be in.

I need to find a church and put myself back into God's presence. I am not sure where I want to go, I don't know if Riverbluff is right for me. But I know that not trying to seek God is not the path I need to be on.

In conclusion, these are my thoughts on this weekend and the conclusions the weekend has brought me too. Please pray for my journey.

The Big 3-0!!

No, I didn't turn 30, not for quite a few years! I weighed in last night and I lost 3.2 pounds last week. That brought my grand total to... tada: 30 pounds!! I don't feel like I have lost that much, but the scale says I did. I still got a lot to go and but 30 pounds in three much is pretty great! Makes me feel pretty proud! :) Also makes me sounds like a tv commercial. Haha!! Thanks for everyones support!! :)
