What I'm Loving Wednesday.


{1st Grade} I love the conversations that I have with my Firsties. Today one of my little girls asked me why I didn't have any kids. I answered with that I wasn't married. Well, you know where that went. "Ms. Patton, Why you not got a husband?" Geez. Make me feel desperate why don't you? :)

{Girls I get to DO life with} Lauren, Lane, Jenny. All of them. I adore each one for what they bring to the table and the blessing that they have been to me while moving away from my "comfort zone" and into my life grown-up life. God is faithful and he never said it would be easy but that he would make it worth it for his glory. 

Thank you Lord for showing me your blessings tonight. 

{Birthday Celebrations} This weekend I get to celebrate this man's birthday. Craig, even though I'm not sure how old he'll be. Cough, cough-- He's pretty special. I've always looked up to him and thought so much for his sweet family. Even though he is a state fan. yuck!

The Spitting Image.

Of my Daddy, that is!

"He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it." 
~ Clarence Budington Kelland 

My daddy is a man who would do anything he could for his family but he isn't going down without a fight! He loves to be practical and make sure that we understand every little detail of the situation! 

Dad, thanks for helping me financially so I can focus on being an independent woman. #whitegirlproblems  

  • He's a man of God, and has always told me to walk in HIS light.
  • Very much a protector and for that I am thankful.
  • He's funny and loves to share a good joke that he has heard/read.
  • He aggravates me more than any person in this world. :)
  • I couldn't imagine who else I would call for apartment problems/car problems/ anything that I know NOTHING about!
I love him too much! He's a provider and loves me for what I am. 

I will never be able to repay you for the monetary things but most importantly the support and help that you have given me my entire life. You love me not only because I'm your punkin' but your little girl that you love to take care of. You're the best! I miss being able to have our random lunch dates, digging through empty houses for treasures, and being able to walk in a room and ask you a question but I know that my God has a plan.

You will never know what you mean to me! 

Your baby girl

Dear Monday!


Dear Monday after Spring Break, thank you for being nice. It really wasn't that painful going back to the classroom today! :)

Dear Dollar Tree, Why must you be so tempting when I am sooooo broke!

Dear Summer, I know we still have Easter break between us but I'm ready for you to make your appearance. It'll be a fun time, promise!

Dear pinterest, it's a wonder that I get anything done at night for all the fun that you bring this OCD brain of mine.

Dear brother, thank you for the cross that you made me. I love it. :)


Dear Tory,  Why must your adorable collection be so dang expensive? My teacher pay doesn't support this habit!

hey Tory

She loves me/ loves me not!

It's Wednesday, of Spring Break! I wish it would slow down as opposed to every other Wednesday in the year! :)

I haven't blogged in many moons and I miss it BIG time! Hopefully, I'm back for the duration of Spring break so get ready Padro.

As you know, link-ups are my favorite so here's another to add to my list.

She loves me.

DERNG jewelry.   i found this lady on instagram and her jewelry is just too precious. can't wait to show you what i've already ordered from the collection. Add here, seriously. :)
click the link to go to her etsy site.

Carrie's new song.   it's nothing like she has ever done and I LOVE it. :)

Spring Break Shopping.    i've done way to much and had lots of fun. Hurry up next paycheck!

She loves me not.

Ben and Courtney.    just not feeling it. I'm not a fan of hers. sorry if I messed with your opinion!
She's a MEAN girl!

Bills.    i feel like this is all i do. Believe me though, I am very thankful for a job and the money I make!

The Devil.     As if this wasn't a given but I feel like he is using other's lives that I come in contact with to show me what I am missing. I'm very thankful for being single in this season and seems like he just wants to shove that to me, everyday. look they are married, look she's dating a great guy. What's wrong with you?.

God, take him and shove him out. I'm doing just fine!

What are you loving this week?????

God bless you all!

Top 5 Tuesday!

This week the topic is Restaurants. :)

I love to EAT and I love to find new places. Let's see if I can pick 5 that you should visit.

Taylor Grocery 

Don't let the looks fool you! It's so good! The catfish is amazing!!! It's such a fun place and people all over Oxford go here like crazy! Try it some time, but call me first! :)


Oh my! Give me a Grilled Chicken Sandwich and a sweet tea from here and I am one happy lady!

The Grill @ Fairpark

This place is our go-to for special occasions, place! It's wonderful and cheap at the same time. It has the expensive feel, you know the dark lights, nice menus, and gracious waiters. :)


It's on the square and has wonderful food. What more could you ask for?

Mi Pueblo

You couldn't ask for a better Mexican place to eat. It's our staple in Pontotoc county! 

Hope your Tuesday has been fabulous! 
What have you done today that I should know?

Dear Monday.


Dear Sleep.  I haven't seen you much in the past 2 days. I'm ready for us to be friends            again! Okay?

Dear Mama.  I'm so thankful that you are always there to back me up and make me feel safe. It's a good thing that God knew we needed each other. We make a good team!

Dear Spring Break. Please hurry! I'm not trying to wish my life away, promise. But, I can't wait to sleep late and do pretty much what I want during your short stay. 

Dear McCarty Sale.  You lived up to the other years! It was tons of fun! See you next year, maybeeee.

Dear Pinterest, Facebook, and Twitter.  Why must you tempt me to not do what I need to be doing and to play with you! Ugh! You get me in trouble!

So glad it's almost Tuesday! Short week for me! I took a "Mental Health" day today! It was wonderful! :)
