wednesday link-ups!

Man, this summer is flyin by!
It's already Wednesday again which means its time for me to link up with my favorites Leigh AshleyJamie, and Michelle for my favorite Wednesday link up parties!
Play know you wanna!

{one} what is your dream job?
Well isn't this question ironic... Dream Job would have to be the equivalent of what Carrie Underwood has goin on.  She is literally living my dream life.

{two} how many best friends do you have?
I don't know if I have a "best friend".  I mean I have my momma...but I have a lot of really good friends.  Facebook says I have 885 friends but that really doesn't mean much.

{three} what’s the longest road trip you’ve ever taken?
Driving from Arkansas to Tampa, FL just about every summer when I was little.

{four} if you had to do one single thing every day for the next year, what would it be?
Hmm...probably play with my puppies.  They make me so happy even when I'm sad... it's great to know something loves you so unconditionally like that :)

{five} what’s one story your family always tells about you?
Momma is always bragging on me (I am her only baby bear after all) so I hear different stories all the time.

{six} how did your parents pick your name?
I'm not really sure...but Sarah Elizabeth is definitely the most common name in the history of the world.  The parent's creative caps must have been off on baby name choosing day.

{seven} what’s the one thing that scares you more than anything?
I have a reoccurring dream where I'm driving along a very high cliff and to my right is some huge body of water.  Up ahead of me is a sharp turn and my steering wheel wont budge which sends me flying off of the cliff into the water where I'm trapped inside of my car.  Seriously.  I have this dream probably once a week...not even kidding. 

{eight} are you a good cook?
I think I could be if I applied myself in the kitchen... when I was younger and Momma was trying to teach me to cook I would stand there and bang my head against the kitchen cabinets.  Now I'm starting to kind of enjoy it!

{nine} where do you see yourself in 20 years?
Lord, who knows...if I knew that I'd know what direction to take now! 
I just want to be happy and healthy and surrounded by people/puppies I love!

{ten} what’s your best childhood memory?
Hmm..I'm not entirely sure.  I have a lot of good memories so it's hard to choose just one.

{I'm Loving} the new edition to my life...Tiffany the Tahoe!

{I'm Loving} the new book I picked up yesterday, One Day.  I've only read a couple of chapters so far but it's a really good, fast read.  They've also made this book into a movie, and I always like reading the book before the movies so I'm glad I picked this one up!
Here's the movie trailer.

{I'm Loving} that I'm going to see friends in Memphis this weekend! I can't wait for this much needed get away!
{I'm Loving} that I have such handsome men in my life...
*in love*
I've got some calendar model dogs, ya'll!

haha... love it.

most patient puppy! Bless his heart!

I cried reading this...
"Our 14 year old dog, Abbey, died last month. The day after she died, my 4 year old daughter Meredith was crying and talking about how much she missed Abbey.  She asked if we could write a letter to God so that when Abbey got to heaven, God would recognize her.  I told her that I thought we could so she dictated these words: Dear God, Will you please take care of my dog? She died yesterday and is with you in heaven. I miss her very much. I am happy that you let me have her as my dog even though she got sick. I hope you will play with her. She likes to play with balls and to swim. I am sending a picture of her so when you see her You will know that she is my dog. I really miss her. Love, Meredith We put the letter in an envelope with a picture of Abbey and Meredith and addressed it to God/Heaven. We put our return address on it. Then Meredith pasted several stamps on the front of the envelope because she said it would take lots of stamps to get the letter all the way to heaven. That afternoon she dropped it into the letter box at the post office. A few days later, she asked if God had gotten the letter yet.  I told her that I thought He had. Yesterday, there was a package wrapped in gold paper on our front porch addressed, ‘To Meredith’ in an unfamiliar hand. Meredith opened it. Inside was a book by Mr. Rogers called, ‘When a Pet Dies.’ Taped to the inside front cover was the letter we had written to God in its opened envelope. On the opposite page was the picture of Abbey & Meredith and this note: Dear Meredith, Abbey arrived safely in heaven. Having the picture was a big help. I recognized Abbey right away. Abbey isn’t sick anymore. Her spirit is here with me just like it stays in your heart. Abbey loved being your dog. Since we don’t need our bodies in heaven, I don’t have any pockets to keep your picture in, so I am sending it back to you in this little book for you to keep and have something to remember Abbey by.  Thank you for the beautiful letter and thank your mother for helping you write it and sending it to me. What a wonderful mother you have. I picked her especially for you. I send my blessings every day and remember that I love you very much. By the way, I’m easy to find, I am wherever there is love. Love, God…"


Have a great Wednesday!!
