Makes Me Smile Monday

For Ava’s 4th birthday, we celebrated at the lake.  Ava was a water bug, and got out of the water only to eat lunch, eat birthday cake, and open presents.  I did, however get a good picture of Marc and me. :)

Love this guy to pieces! :)

Makes Me Smile…Thursday?

Okay, so it’s not Monday, and I haven’t done a Makes Me Smile Monday post in awhile, but I took this picture of Paisley on our new hammock (Christmas gift from my grandma), and I love it.  My girl loves to be right where you are…such a people lover! :)

Okay, I know you have these days.  When you at work, and the people there are just driving you crazy.  You want nothing more than to be sarcastic and witchy with them, but you put on your nice face, suck it up, and help them.

That’s what I feel like I’ve been doing almost all day.  And it’s not a problem.  I like helping them.  But some days?  I want to ask if they remember when I told them how to do the same task a week ago, a month ago, when they affiliated with us.  You know…you’ve told them who knows how many times, but they still need your help?  So frustrating on some days.

But then I get an email that says:

“You ROCK Brittany! THANK YOU so much.

I have to tell you…I have been in many offices.  You truly are incredible.  We think the world of you!”

And that makes it worth it.  I’ll lose most some of my irritation, and my smile will be more genuine. :)

Hope you are having a fabulous day! :)

Makes Me Smile Monday

Today, I’m smiling because I celebrated 6 years of marriage yesterday.  Ideally, I would upload a photo from our wedding day, but they’re on my external hard drive, and I’m feeling lazy tonight.  So, instead, you can go here to see what I wrote on our 4th anniversary, or here for our 3rd anniversary.

So, here’s to 6 wonderful, blessed years of marriage, and here’s to many, many more!

Makes Me Smile Monday

What’s making me smile today?  Oh, just the fact that I’ll be on vacation starting Wednesday with Marc AND the pups!  Looking forward to a few days in Beaufort with my favorites. :)  Ready for sunsets and sunrises and time with Marc celebrating our 6th anniversary! :)

Makes Me Smile Monday

This is a recent photo, but it really does make me smile.  Mainly, because Marc makes me smile.  We laugh.  A lot.  I love that about our relationship, about our marriage.  So, here’s to us, and our life, and our love. :)DSC07278

Makes Me Smile Monday

Here’s my 2nd edition of Makes Me Smile Monday.  I was going through some of my old photos, and came across this gem:10-16-2010 And it literally just makes me smile.  It reminds me of good times with great friends. (And in case you were wondering why we were dressed up, it was for a 50th birthday party for a friend’s mom.  It was my favorite costume party ever!).

Because of this party, we’ve started planning for a big 30th birthday party for a couple of us who have the milestone coming up next year. :) Cannot.Wait! :)  It’s gonna be awesome!! :)

Makes Me Smile Monday

Don’t you just love pictures that you can look at, and they just make you smile?  I do…makes my heart feel good.  So, I’m going to try to do this every week, on Mondays.

Here is today’s photo:

DSC00407This is my boy, Ace.  He is such a sweet boy.  He loves to cuddle and snuggle.  And he loves to play.  He and Paisley are best friends, and I just love that. :)

Hope y’all had a happy Monday!! :)

It’s gonna be a great year

This year is already off to a great start, and I am so excited to see how it plays out!

This is new years…and this photo series just makes me laugh.  Honestly, we don’t have a great photo from new years, but this is us, so I’m happy with them. :)


Thanks to the photographer…I think it was Johnny. :) I missed Katie M being there to take some great photos of the night.  I didn’t get nearly enough. :)

After these photos came the fireworks – I love fireworks, but only for a few minutes.  30 minutes of fireworks is just boring to me.  Do you agree?


I love New Year’s in Morehead City.  And I love my friends. My life is good. :)


I also made the 2nd biggest purchase of my life (our house is the 1st), and bought a car.  Isn’t it pretty?!?  I’m in love!! :)IMG_0073

Want to know what the best part of January was?  My best friend is now a Mama!! :) Baby Cole is gorgeous, and healthy.  And Katie and Chad are learning what it’s like to live without sleep! :) And how handsome does my husband look with a baby? He’s going to be a great Daddy one day.


February has started off pretty awesome, too.  On Thursday, February 2nd, I went had did this…IMG_0084

And this is the only photo I have, because Marc is the only one who went with me.  For good reason, too.  It took about 2 minutes from start to finish to get my new tattoo. :) And I LOVE it!!DSC00378

It’s super simple, but it’s my Jesus fish.  And it’s my reminder to Walk by Faith (Jeremy Camp song, which I love), on my left foot, closer to my heart.  However, is it bad that I don’t want my parents to know?  I mean, I’m a 28 year old adult, but I know my dad with be really upset, and my mom would be disappointed.  I know it’ll come out eventually, but…for now, it’s my secret, shared with y’all. :)

February is busy…I’m heading to Orlando for work next Thursday for a week.  Looking forward to hanging out with some of my Charlotte friends, but I’m gonna miss home.  It’s bittersweet.

So, how’s 2012 looking for you?  Are you loving it like me?  Have a great weekend, y’all! :)
