I will refuse to dance...
to the pressure
to be or to do.
or to prove something.
In order to win someone's love.
Or acceptance.

I am not a slave to the opinions of others.

My Testimony

I wanted to do something a little different tonight, so you didn't have to read my boring stuff, instead you got to listen lol! I would have never made it to where I am if it wasn't for my family. My dad, mom, and sister are my biggest rock besides God. I'm no where near perfect but my Heavenly father loves me no matter what, and he is constantly growing me everyday! I couldn't even imagine my life without God! :) I also attached one of my new favorite songs! Enjoy! :)

I blame my parents

So you see, I'm single, and have been since high school. I haven't been "in a relationship" since then. Honestly, that's okay with me I know God has great plans for me and my Mr. Right, but last night it hit me! I know why I am single! It's because of my parents!!

I am a very girly girl. I think my room has every shade of pink in it, i love Mani's and Pedi's, I love make-up, and shopping. However; as much as I love that I think my parents have warped me. Here's how

First: I LOVE power tools. Daddy taught me how to use an nail gun, electric sander, all different kind of saws, and other things. I love doing that. I'm also never afraid to get dirty, if there is a job to be done, I'll get it done. I've roofed houses, sanded doors, fixed things that needed fixin. I am not afraid of a little dirt!

Second: My mom was never a fufu queen and loved/loves sports. Although I didn't play them very long, I LOVE sports. I love watching them. I was voted most spirited in High School.

Third: Baseball is in my blood, I know this goes with sports, but I find baseball as a basic necessity in life. When a game is on, my phone is usually blown up by guys, not because they like me but because we are talking baseball! lol. I personally find a date to the ballpark more romantic than a date to a fancy restaurant.

Fourth: I was not raised up to be all mushy gushy. I am a very straight forward girl, I am not mushy gushy by any means, and it takes a lot for me to. Neither of my parents are mushy gushy, so I in return am not.

Fifth: I was raised to be independent and not to rely on a man. I learned to do things myself. If a need a 2x4 cut, I'll go cut it. If the the toilet is broken I fix it. I know how to do most "man jobs". If the the lawn needs to be mowed, I can mow it. If daddy needs someone to help chop down a tree, I'm there. I get the job done, and don't rely on men to do it for me. That's how my parents raised me.

So since I'm not a normal girl, i blame my parents for me being single, it only makes sense right ;) Just so you know I'm totally kidding. I know I'm single because it's not my time yet, and I really don't blame my parents. I love them for raising me like they did, and I can't thank them enough. I was raised to fear the Lord, take care of myself, and eat, sleep, and breath baseball!! lol. :) Thanks Daddy and Momma for raising me right! I love yall!!

Te echo de menos

Hola. En este blog yo acabo de hablar del corazón. Estoy harto de hombres que utilizan a chicas para su propia ganancia personal. Estoy también enfermo de ser a la chica que consigue herido repetidas veces. No es justo. Quise realmente a este chavo, pero fui dolido. Pregunto a Dios diario por qué yo tuve que atravesar el dolor otra vez. Deseo a un hombre que me adora para mí, y que no importa lo que se parará por mi lado. Por grueso y delgado. Odio decir un chavo que mi historia entera sólo ser dolida y dejó colgar. Me caigo rápidamente, y me espanto. Odio caerse para chavos, así que como puede imaginarse, yo soy hecho. Soy hecho con chavos a menos que puedan demostrar realmente quieren ser conmigo, y crecer juntos en Jesucristo. Deseo a un hombre verdadero de Dios, no una falsificación. El último chavo habló de Dios todo el tiempo, y cómo quiso seguirme en una manera santa, pero acabó por como los otros chavos. Mi oración es que encontraré a mi príncipe que encanta que me adorará para mí, y que querrá ser conmigo. Quiero crecer en Jesús con él, favorecer uno al otro, apoyar uno al otro, adorar uno al otro, y ser mejores amigos. Quiero reírse y llorar juntos. Quiero fiarse de él con todo el corazón. Quiero sentirse un cien por ciento seguro en sus armamentos. Mi oración es Dios curará mi dolor y corazón roto, y me muestra lo que un hombre verdadero de Dios es.

I am not sure if my spanish is correct, but it had to be done in spanish.

My Favorite Baseball Quotes

~ What does a mama bear on the pill have in common with the World Series? No cubs. ~Harry Caray

~ What are we at the park for except to win? I'd trip my mother. I'd help her up, brusher her off, tell her I'm sorry. But mother don't make it to third. ~Leo Durocher

~ A baseball park is the one place where a man's wife doesn't mind his getting excited over somebody else's curves. ~Brendan Francis

~ I'm convinced that every boy, in his heart, would rather steal second base than an automobile. ~Tom Clark

~ Baseball, to me, is still the national pastime because it is a summer game. I feel that almost all Americans are summer people, that summer is what they think of when they think of their childhood. I think it stirs up an incredible emotion within people. ~Steve Busby, in Washington Post, 8 July 1974

~ You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock. You've got to throw the ball over the plate and give the other man his chance. That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all. ~Earl Weaver

~ What is both surprising and delightful is that spectators are allowed, and even expected, to join in the vocal part of the game.... There is no reason why the field should not try to put the batsman off his stroke at the critical moment by neatly timed disparagement's of his wife's fidelity and his mother's respectability. ~George Bernard Shaw

~ "A hot dog at the ballgame beats roast beef at the Ritz." ~ Humphrey Bogar

~ People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for Spring. ~Rogers Hornsby

~ A baseball game is simply a nervous breakdown divided into nine innings. ~Earl Wilson

~ Say this much for big league baseball - it is beyond question the greatest conversation piece ever invented in America. ~Bruce Catton

~ A Rangers fan, a Yankees fan & a Red Sox fan are climbing a mountain & arguing about who loves his team more. The Red Sox fan insists he is the most loyal. "This is for the Sox!", he yells, & jumps off the mountain. Not to be outdone, the Rangers fan is next to profess his love for his team. He yells "This is for Texas!" & pushes the Yankee fan off the mountain.

~ Baseball is reassuring. It makes me feel as if the world is not going to blow up. ~Sharon Olds, This Sporting Life, 1987

-A future teacher
-A baseball fanatic (espcially my Texas Rangers)
-A preschool teacher in the church
-A singer
-A student
-A helper

I serve in a church, at school and at home, that serves unchurched people! I get to teach sweet preschool kids, and it completes my life. I cannot wait to become a teacher. I want to teach 2nd grade but will teach wherever I am needed. I also have a huge heart for people in Peru and Africa!

I am very OCD and I have some pretty intense morals, just the way i was raised. I love school! I am a very girly girl, but not afraid to get dirty. Pink is my favorite color and that could be an understatement! I have some amazing friends and they have been there for me through a lot!

So anyways thats my life summed up pretty much! Keep a look out for more posts! I have a feeling this blog will be random! ;)
