2. Share 7 things about yourself.

4. Contact them and tell them about their award!

1) I have a great family
I have been so blessed with a wonderful family. My parents raised me and my brother is a christian household and we have so much to be thankful for. My parents have always worked hard for our family to make sure we always had what we needed. My dad is a self-employed heavy duty mechanic and my mom is a high school home economics teacher. I have one brother who is three years younger than me. He is a sophomore in college right now. He followed in my footsteps to Snead State Community College and he will transfer to UA this fall!

2) I love my wonderful boyfriend
Wesley and I have been together for 7 years! We started dating when I was a sophomore in high school and he was a senior! He has been there with me through so many things in my life, I don't know what I would do without him. :)

3) I have the best friends a girl could ask for!
While in college I had the best two best roommates, they are my best friends! I had known Marsha for about a year before we roomed together and I had known Emily for many years. We love to all get together with my brother, Dillon, LaTiegra, Kayla and Kirby to play games!

My friends from high school try to get together as much as possible! It is always a great time when we get to catch up!
I am also loving my new blogger friends!!

4) Unique fact: I am left handed
I am the odd one in my family who is left handed. My great grandparents were left handed and I have a great uncle who is too so I guess I took after them. I have loved being left handed. I think of it as a special trait that not many people have!

5) I graduated from the University of Alabama
I graduated with a communications degree last May. I am so glad I chose bama. It was a great experience and I am excited for my brother to be there this fall!
6) My hobby is decorating cakes & cupcakes!
I took a cake decorating class last spring and I fell in love with it. I consider myself a beginner, but I am learning so much!

7) Sports
My favorite sport would have to be football! I  I especially love going to Bama football games! I have also been to several away games. The best game I have ever been to was the 2009 National Championship in Pasadena. My brother and I went with our uncle and his family to the championship and it was so much fun! We spent a whole week sight seeing and then went to the game on Thursday night.
