Has it really been fifteen years?

I sit down tonight writing as a 22 year-old.  

However, I feel like the same 13-year-old pre-pubescent girl I was in 1998 when the Backstreet Boys came onto the music scene.  I mean, not in every way, but you know what I mean...

Growing up is so weird.

Tonight is the final episode of TRL (Total Request Live) on MTV.  How weird is that?  I remember coming home from school and rushing to the TV to watch Carson Daily and see what video made #1 that day.  I remember voting for, of course, the Backstreet Boys every chance I got.  

So tonight, the Backstreet Boys just preformed "I want it that way".  One of the best songs ever.  I just feel so old/weird/confused about where all this time went.  

I dunno, I get all sad/emotional when I think about how fast it's all gone by.

I love the Backstreet Boys, and so should you.

Honoring the Lesser King...

"Honoring the lesser king"

There’s nothing Christian about joining in on the national sport of lampooning the leaders you voted against | Nathan Trice

Whatever the outcome of today’s election, most Americans will consider it one of their basic rights to complain about that outcome wherever it fails to meet their hopes and expectations. Many conversations will include terms of disrespect for the newest leaders of the land.

Our First Amendment freedom to, among other things, speak our minds about our elected officials will be exercised widely in the days following the election, and many an American Christian will join in this national sport of lampooning the leaders they voted against.

But there is
nothing Christian about such a liberty.

It may come as a surprise to some of us that—though the denigration of our leaders is a liberty afforded by our society—it is not a liberty afforded by God. To be sure, the right of moral protest against unrighteousness in our rulers is one clearly derived from Scripture, and we should be grateful to live in a land where this right is acknowledged by our founding documents. Yet, where such civil liberties in the West have been accompanied by a widespread indulgence in the rhetoric of personal disdain for our leaders, the same Scriptures are being blatantly violated. The call of God in his Word is simply and emphatically: “Honor the King” (1 Peter 2:17).

The call to render honor to civil authorities is perhaps most striking when voiced by the apostles. They preached the gospel of a risen Christ who was the rightful King of all the earth, yet they did so in an era in which the highest civil authority, the emperor of Rome, was increasingly demanding of an idolatrous loyalty by his subjects. This called forth the most heroic defiance of civil authorities when necessary to “obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29). Yet, astonishingly, the same apostles retained the view that God has instituted all civil authority, and that Christians were to render respect and honor even to godless rulers as unto the Lord (Romans 13:1-7). What they recognized is that one of the ways in which God in Christ rules the world is through even pagan rulers, whose hearts are in the Lord’s hands (Proverbs 21:1).
As the various ramifications of this election sink into our minds in the coming days, so also should the implications of what Paul says to the Christians in Rome: “[T]here is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God” (Romans 13:1). All who rise to political power, whether by means of a privileged birth, a successful military coup, or a victory at the ballot box, do so only by the providential appointment of God in heaven. This consideration alone calls for not only law-abiding submission, but also the respect and honor of our hearts and lips. We may discuss whether God has brought blessing or judgment upon our land through the various election winners, but in each case they are nothing less than “ministers of God” (vs. 6). We honor or dishonor God Himself as we honor or dishonor his servants.

Indeed, the posture of Christians toward their rulers should be something of a paradox to a watching world. Like the martyrs of the Church throughout the ages, we should be capable of a radical defiance of human rulers when faced with a conflict between divine and human authority. Yet we should also be mindful of Paul’s example while on trial before the Council, when he accepted a rebuke for his strong words against the High Priest, and acknowledged the law’s requirement: “You shall not speak evil of a ruler of your people” (Acts 23:5). Christians should distinguish themselves among their fellow citizens for holding their leaders in the highest honor, despite even their most obvious character flaws, out of acknowledgement that they occupy their offices by the express appointment of God.

Let us distance ourselves as Christians from the irresistible American pastime of deriding our politicians. Our first allegiance is to the King of Kings, but, for His sake, we must also honor every lesser king ... whether we voted for him or not.

Nathan Trice is a pastor in Matthews, N.C.

I am sad to say that I haven't lived up to this, but it is so true.  Last night as I was watching CNN, my friends on facebook were updating their statuses every 5 seconds with another degrading thing to say about the President-elect.  I was actually astonished by how out-right rude and heartless the comments they made were.  It's one thing to be upset and/or sad that your candidate didn't win last night, but guess what, complaining and saying moronic things on-line isn't going to change anything.  You did your part, you campaigned, you volunteered, you voted.  That's that.  

Yesterday was a very historical day.  America will have it's first African-American president.  To think of how much this country has changed and evolved from just fifty years ago is wonderful.  Living and being raised in the south, I have seen my fair share of racism.  Especially those who are closet racists.  I don't really know what to say, other than how sad it makes me.  I am, however, hopeful for the future.  I am excited to see what Barack Obama will do for this, our country.  He brought about a change in people before the polls, a change in people coming to the polls, so let's see what he can do now that he's won.  

I hope people's ignorance will not be a hindrance to the way he runs our country.  It's the best country in the whole world, and I am so proud to be an American.

It's been a while

So it's been a while since I've blogged...

I've been blessed with a super great job opportunity thanks to my friend Jenna.  Her friend is starting a Property Management Company and has asked me to jump on - creating a logo, designing ads for the phonebook & newspaper, and really getting in on the ground level.  I'm supposed to get together with him tomorrow, so hopefully everything will go smoothly with the whole thing!  :o)

I can't believe Halloween is Friday!  Two days away!  I have a super cute little black t-shirt to wear.  

My plans for Friday so far include an eye doctor's appointment @ 9:00 a.m. & hanging out with Sarah.  I think we might watch some fun (not scary) Halloween movies like Hocus Pocus or Casper :o) 

I still want to carve a pumpkin.  Check these out:

How cool are they?  I haven't carved a pumpkin in such a long time, and I think it'd be really fun!  

Anyway... I'm trying to sell my USC/Tennessee tickets for this weekend... if you know anybody that wants to buy them, let me know!  Hope everyone has a safe & happy Halloween!

Wednesday, October 22


So I know there's only like 4 people who read this... but if any of you know of any available jobs out there- send them my way!  

I passed out like 7 resumés yesterday, and that makes the Lindsay Resumés floating around myrtle beach count up to 12.  You'd think SOMEONE would want to hire me!  Gees!

It's hard.  I need to pay my phone bill peeps!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Every female out there should check herself in the shower, at the doctor's, or during a mammogram.  I cannot begin to preach how important this step is.  

My mom was diagnosed in January of 2007 with Inflammatory Breast Cancer.  This type of cancer makes up between 1-6 percent of all women diagnosed with Breast Cancer and is one of the more deadly.  My mom went through six months of chemotherapy beginning in February 2007.  Once a month she & my dad would go to the doctor's office and she'd sit there with needles in her arms and poison being poured into her to kill the cancer cells.  Thankfully, the poison did it's job, but while doing so, wrecked havoc on my mom's physical and mental state.  She lost all of her hair, even her eye brows, and the treatments made her violently sick to her stomach.  I can't even imagine what it was like going through through all of that.  In June, 2007 she underwent a single mastectomy, removing the tumor and the entire breast.  Once she "recovered" from the surgery, she began a rapid treatment of radiation.  These treatments lasted around 2-3 months.  Every two-three weeks she would go and sit under this machine while it did its job.  The radiation was to kill any remaining cancer cells left over from the chemotherapy & surgery.  This past summer she had yet another surgery to basically clean up from the original mastectomy.  My mother is now scarred and only has one breast, but you know what?

She is a survivor.   

Her being diagnosed with breast cancer at such an early age (50) puts a fear in my heart. Not a scared fear, but a healthy fear, for myself to continually get checked and keep a close watch on anything that looks or feels suspicious.  I can't begin to tell all of you how shocked I still am to see how many lives cancer has become a daily part of.  When my mom was getting chemo treatments, the room would be full.  Full of women, men & children.  Cancer doesn't discriminate.  

So whether it's October, March or July... be aware.  Get yourself checked, and tell your friends and family too.  It's not worth it not to.  

Ok so it's been 4 days... sue me.

Ok so it's been a few days since I've last updated... my deepest & sincerest apologies do go out.  

This weekend my dad & I went to Columbia for the South Carolina/LSU game.  We were super pumped since it was an 8 o'clock game televised on ESPN... yea we're a big deal... so yea... National Champions in our house.  We were totally ready for the upset, and at half-time, I was actually starting to believe it very well might have happened. 

South Carolina started our red-shirt freshman Stephen Garcia... let's just say it was long overdue.  When he came to USC, he got himself in a bit of trouble, i.e. getting arrested & keying a professor's car.  When I first heard about those unfortunate events, I, along with the rest of SC, said "get this hoodlum outta here!"  but, thank the good Lord they didn't.  

He was amazing last night.  By half-time we were winning 17-10.  Defeating the National Title holders.  Little did we know, that was going to be as good as it got for South Carolina.  

So we lost, 24-17.  The second half LSU just dominated.  It was incredibly sad to watch a team that was shutting them and their stupid fans up to crumble before your eyes, but alas, this is the familiar story of a South Carolina fan.

Which brings me to a much lighter note-  Clemson lost to GA Tech... oh yea... it gets better... their head coach- Tommy Bowden- he got the boot on Monday.  When I first heard the news, I didn't believe it.  He'd been there for 10 years and just signed a contract with them for a few more years this past football season... but you never know with college football.  The Clemson community is so full of hot aired people and with Bowden they expected a possible national championship (ha, yea right) but at least an ACC Championship, which may have been feasible, and so I can understand why Clemson decided to let him go.  Do I agree with letting him go in the middle of the season during conference games?  I dunno about that... but what the alumni want, the alumni get.  Bowden, however, isn't hurting one bit.  He's sitting with his feet up on Saturdays now with a cool check for $3.5 million.  No big deal.  

Anyway... so yea my weekend was consumed with college football, which is just fine by me.

So excited.

Random Rant

So there are some things/people I've been wondering about...


How did they/it become so famous/popular?

Why do people like these people/things?

Why do people pay to see/buy these things?

#1- P.T. Cruisers.

This is by far, the world's ugliest car on the road. I don't understand why anyone thinks they are cool looking. And, at $17,920 - $24,430... PEOPLE! Come on! Can you not pick a more attractive vehicle to spend your hard-earned money on?
I really just don't understand.

#2 Frank Caliendo.

Who is this guy? I mean, where did he come from and why does he have his own TV show? The basis of his show (I think b/c I've never actually watched it) is him doing imitations of famous people. Is that the only way people will watch you? Because they think you are someone else? This is what Wikipedia says about him:

Currently, he performs his impersonations on his own show, Frank TV, which airs on TBS. He is particularly well-known for his impressions of United States Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, NFL color commentator John Madden, as well as Charles Barkley, Dr. Phil McGraw, William Shatner, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, and Robin Williams.

Interesting... all those people he imitates are funny/famous for a reason.
Frank Caliendo- not so much.

#3 Chelsea Handler.

Ok, so again... this chick comes out of nowhere and has her own show on E!. Sure she is pretty and all, but have you ever listened to her or watched her show? She has one of the foulest mouths I've heard. She might as well be a sailor. She has authored two books, entitled: My Horizontal Life: A Collection of One Night Stands & Are You There Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea.

Really? Really. Classy.

Here is a bit of info that may help clear things up... her boyfriend is Ted Harbert. Oh, you don't know who he is? Let me inform you. He is the CEO of Comcast Entertainment Group, who just by some lucky chance oversees E! Entertainment Television. Coincidence? I think not.

#4 Kid Rock.

Aw, how sweet Robert.  Yes, that's right, Robert James Ritchie. How does someone who looks/acts/and probably smells like this sell over 25 million records?  Another one of life's greatest mysteries.  He has no singing abilities whatsoever.  Sure he can play several musical instruments, but that doesn't mean you are allowed to open your mouth.  He really just grosses me out.

Top Ten Things I ♥ About Fall

So it's October 2nd and at 1:00 p.m. it is 68˚ outside. ::sigh::
Ok, so my top ten things I love about fall...  in no particular order...

The South Carolina State Fair- This will be the first time I won't be in Columbia for the fair in four years and that makes me VERY sad.  I used to live less than a mile away from the fair grounds, and I would LOVE driving to school and seeing the ferris wheel and the slides, and the swings, and all the other wonderful things about the fair being set up.  I am really hoping I'll be able to make it up there this year.  I mean, what's October without a funnel cake, right?

Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin- So I'm walking around the mall the other day and smell a very familiar scent... I take my happy fall-loving-self into Bath & Body Works and there it is...waiting for me... Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin.  Room spray, candles galore, car fresheners, lotion, wallflowers, etc.  I chose the scentportable and now every time I get into my car I close my eyes and take a deep breathe of the deliciousness that is sweet cinnamon pumpkin.  I suggest, that for those of you who have never smelled this scent from God, go.  Go now to BB&W and purchase any and everything you can.  

• Pumpkin Patches- I used to, and still do, love going to pick out a pumpkin for Halloween.  I know I could take my cheap self to Wal-Mart and get one for $5, but it's so much more fun to go and see them all laid out before you and you can choose the perfect pumpkin!  The church across the street from us has them for sell every October and last Sunday they were unloading them off the tractor trailer... I'm definitely carving one this year :o)

• Candy Corn- I'm pretty sure candy corn is available year round, but for some reason, it just tastes better in October.  I, of course, eat them like a lady.

• SEC Football- For example, match-ups for this first weekend in October:

South Carolina vs. Ole Miss
Alabama vs. Kentucky
Arkansas vs. Flordia
Auburn vs. Vandy

UGA & LSU have a bye-week but you get the idea... no more stupid teams.  It's time for business.  

• The Weather- I don't care how cliché it is, with fall comes less humidity, and less humidity = GREAT hair days :o).  There were several days this summer when the heat index was well over 100˚- that's just wrong.  Not to mention the fact that walking outside on a summer day in late July felt like a flippin' sauna.  So yes, cliché or not,   I love fall weather.  

Apple Cider- I LOVE apple cider.  It's usually my preferred drink at Starbucks- Carmel Apple Cider with Whipped Cream please!  It's just so good.  I can't even describe it.  Walking outside, it not only warms your hands, but insides too!  Sure, you could also drink apple cider year round, but it's so much better when heated on the stove and poured into a nice big coffee mug and enjoyed outside in the cool fall weather!

Corn Mazes- How could anyone not like a corn maze?  I've had two different opportunities to go in college, but for some reason, I didn't, and now I regret not going.  First off- can it get any more festive than a corn maze?  No.  Didn't think so.  Corn Mazes are so typically fall, but ya know what, I might just have to try one out this year!

Fires and/or Bonfires-  So maybe, I'm a little bit of a pyro- but who isn't?  I love listening to a fire in a fireplace and the way it smells.  I equally love bonfires- they are SO big.  I love going to a gathering where there's a bonfire and apple cider/hot chocolate.  Last year, my church had a bonfire/oyster roast.  A-mazing.  So go and enjoy a fire this fall/winter season!

Dansko Clogs- I'd like to thank Jenna for introducing me to the best shoes in the world.  Well, at least during fall.  These shoes are so comfortable and you can wear them with any and everything.   

And so, this concludes my top ten things about Fall.  I hope you've enjoyed and maybe even become inspired by my loves about Fall.  I can't wait to break out my sweaters and Danksos, go over to Starbucks, order myself a Carmel Apple Cider, head over to Lexington Corn Maze or start a bonfire with my friends... yay for Fall!

Oh and btw... GO COCKS! 

Saturday, September 27

Saturday... Saturday... Saturday...

so it's saturday, and once again, gus hasn't failed to wake me up at 7:15 a.m. on the dot.  so after a trip outside, gus' breakfast, another trip outside, i find myself here.

so yesterday morning i got some really sad news... remember the little kid dad did karaoke with last weekend?  well he was in greenville at the shriner's hospital on friday having some rods or something removed and at first i was told he died from complications with anesthesia, but now we found out something about there was a mass or something on or behind his colon?  and it ruptured during surgery or something... im not 100% sure how it happened, but i was tore up yesterday.  he was the sweetest, smartest, cutest little kid.  he had gone through so much in his 5 years here... diagnosed with MD, being in a full body cast for 12 weeks, breaking bones constantly, all the while never complaining. 
 he could speak english and french fluently, and was above average in his class.  at the family weekend day thing, we were talking to him, and his mom had dropped him off, asking if we'd watch him while she went to get some food and of course we said yes, and all of a sudden he started screaming "MOM!!!!"  and we said, "Jake what's wrong?" he s
aid "Well she said if I needed her, to holler!"... he was precious.  i'm so glad i got to spend that day with him.  i know everything happens for a re
ason and God has a plan for each and everyone of us, but right now i am just praying for his family and their tremendous loss... i can't even begin to fathom what losing a child is like... especially Jake.  


anyway... happy birthday today nick!  it's my friend jenna's husband's birthday today!  i got to celebrate last night with them since i'm going out of town tonight... we had friday's and mmmm it was delish!  i am all about some spinach dip and jack daniel's chicken strips!

Girl's Night

As promised...

I ♥ YouTube

This little girl is a map genius! & she has a pimp little dance!  She would beat me in a test for sure.. Turkmenistan? what the crap?

Luke 6:27-45 & Romans 12:9-12

Luke 6:27-45

"But if you are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies. Do good to those who hate you. Pray for the happiness of those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn the other cheek. If someone demands you coat, offer your shirt also. Give what you have to anyone who asks you for it; and when things are taken away from you, don't try to get them back. Do for others as you would like them to do for you.

Do you think you deserve credit merely for loving those who love you? Even the sinners do that! And if you do good only to those who do good to you, is that so wonderful? Even sinners do that much! And if you lend money only to those who can repay you, what good is that? Even sinners will lend to their own kind for a full return.

Love you enemies! Do good to them! Lend to them! And don't be concerned that they might not repay. Then you reward from heaven will be very great, and you will truly be acting as children of the Most High, for he is kind to the unthankful and to those who are wicked. You must be compassionate, just as your Father is compassionate.

Stop judging others, and you will not be judged. Stop criticizing others, or it will all come back on you. if you forgive others, you will be forgiven. If you give, you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room from more, and running over. Whatever measure you use in giving- large or small- it will be used to measure what is given back to you."

"What good is it for one blind person to lead another? The first one will fall into a ditch and pull the other down also. A student is not greater than the teacher. But the student who works hard will become like the teacher.

And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying 'Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye' when you can't see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log from your own eye; then perhaps you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye.

A good tree can't produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can't produce good fruit. A tree is identified by the kind of fruit it produces. Figs never grow on thornbushes or grapes on bramble bushes. A good person produces good deeds from a good heart, and an evil person produces evil deeds from an evil heart. Whatever is in your heart determines what you say."

Romans 12:9-12

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

good sunday morning!

Good morning my fellow bloggers!  Due to my recent puppy purchase I've been waking up increasingly earlier than ever before!  Thank God Gus decided to sleep till 7:30 a.m. this morning :o)  I do find myself enjoying the cool weather that comes with 7 a.m. though!  And with the rest of my house still asleep- it's perfect blogging time!  And with no further ado... I begin...

So I feel like a lot has happened since Wednesday... Thursday was my friend Keriann's little brother's birthday :o)  He is now 20 years old.  That boggles my mind.  I remember when he was just a little kid hiding and running away from us and we'd have to go SEARCHING all of freakin' Deerfield to find him.  It's really cool to watch people grow up... Now Jerren is such an awesome guy to hang out with and he is SO funny.  I always end up going home with my sides hurting from laughing when we all get together, and this was no exception.  Their family (including myself :o)  dined at Olive Garden, always a favorite, to celebrate his bday!  

He loved it.  We also had some interesting people sitting around us... but unfortunately I did not get any pictures of them... so sad!  

Friday was Girl's Night!  Angel, Jenna & myself treated us to Bonefish Grill & as always, we had a blast!  It is always fun to go out with people who you connect with and can just sit and laugh all night long... I would post pictures but Angel is slack and has not posted any of hers yet :o)  Love you Angel!  I will post some of the awesome ones whenever she decides to share them with me :o)

Yesterday... I was a cleaning machine!  I tend to let my room go when it comes to putting away clothes... I don't know why I can't keep it clean once I've cleaned it, but I can't so I have cleaning days to help the situation.  So while I was cleaning, Emma came over and kept me company bringing with her Chick-fil-a sweet tea aka God's gift to me. 

Later in the day, Dad's work was having an employee appreciation party... we were invited, even though Dad hasn't stepped foot in FedEx since Dece
mber, all his peeps miss him!  The get-together was on the Air Force Base and they had some outside games and then inside there was catering from Big D's-delish!  And to top it off... they had a karaoke machine... And we convinced Dad to go up their with one of his employee's son to sing AC/DC "Money Talks".

This was one of the funniest/sweetest things I have ever seen!  By the way... "Money Talks" was the 5 year-old's choice to sing, not Dad's.  

My friend Carol came over after the party to watch some college football- the only thing you should be doing on a Saturday!  Let's see... Florida beat Tennessee 30-6, so I guess that means somewhere out there...

... gross.  Thank God we bet Wofford yesterday as well... 23-13- Dad & I gave our tickets to Suzanne & Charlie, so we didn't go to the game :o(  

Georgia also won last night, which sucks.  I can't stand them.  Down with UGA!

Anyway... That's pretty much all that's been going on since we've last chatted... Hope everyone has had as fun a weekend as I did!

First Blog

So I'm jumpin' on the bandwagon.  I've done a blog or two in my days but recently I've enjoyed reading the ones on this particular website.  Anywho... I don't really have anything crazy awesome to blog about at the moment... but give me some time!  

I would like to praise the Lord for this awesome cool weather today!  I think it's seriously like 77 degrees outside and it's 5:38 p.m.  FAN-TASTIC!  I'm so ready for fall... Jeans everyday... sweaters... HOODIES  :o)  yum.  

Gus [my new mini-schnauz] puppy is doing well.  He hasn't had any accidents today- that's a plus!  He's growing so fast- it's crazy.  I remember the first time we visited with his parents & the puppies were just five weeks old... they were the cutest things I've ever seen.  And now, he's so big, and only getting bigger!  Anyway, Gus the Bus is truckin' along!
I am very annoyed with car advertising around here btw.  Hyatt Pontiac has the guy that owns the dealership I guess and his little daughter on there.. and yea I live in South Carolina, but not everyone here is a redneck with a terrible accent.  This child however, very well may be... "If you don't buy your car here my daddy says you're paying too much!"  ugh ::gag::  If it were just one car dealership here using their children as advertising tools, fine.  But no, seriously, like 7 do it.  Those kids are going to get made fun of at school I hope they know.  Anyway.  

I also can't stop watching the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler Sarah Palin/Hilary Clinton SNL skit.  It is so funny.  "And I can see Russia from my house."  I love Tina Fey- I watched Baby Mama twice last week- good and funny movie.  

I also enjoy this picture:

Ok so I think that's pretty much it-  enjoy!
