Dante aka Mr. Wigglebottoms…we picked you from the shelter, all 110# of you because we knew that most people would just keep walking past you, and you had the sweetest eyes. You quickly became the favorite pillow for Amiyah as she would lay on the floor with you and read to you. We thought if we could just get some of the weight off of you that you would be a part of our family for years. A short year later and the pounds started dropping, but because you had cancer. We hope you realized during your last year how much you were loved. We know you are running through the clouds with Wilson, Natasha and Precious. Until we see you on the other side ??
Wow, trying to find the words to express how humbled and proud I feel after our event this weekend. There is a whole crew of wonderful people that facilitated making this final NFF show of the season a success. Our goal was to give the athletes a great experience because at the end of the day it is ALL about them – We have received so much positive feedback from the athletes so I think we accomplished that! My husband John, you know better than anyone that I’m crazy and I stress details and planning. Thank you for always supporting and encouraging me especially when I’m not feeling confident in myself, I love you so much bb!! Our volunteers – you are ALL simply amazing! Ramont and Mallory kept the entrance side of the stage running like a machine, flawless and perfectly smooth! Lawrence I can’t even imagine how many steps you got rounding up athletes and getting them to the pump up area, love you and your positive and energetic attitude! Tiffany in the morning and Jordan in the evening – ya’ll ran the exit side of the stage perfectly, keeping the athletes informed and keeping them there when it was needed! Tiffany and Julie the most beautiful and stacked awards presenters ever! Graceful and strong, love you both to pieces, thank you! Ashley and Gina, you both kept the entrance and the athlete area secure, I appreciate you SO much!! Clayton and Andrew ran ticket sales, I didn’t even have to worry for a second because I knew it was taken care of…priceless! Jennifer thank you for running our booth and slinging shirts and hats like a BOSS! And if that wasn’t enough you drug us back to Bastrop on Sunday so we could get our bikes, love you girl!! Pappa Ooh – I asked you to say our prayer before the show began and you nailed it. That part was so important to me because without Him none of this would have taken place. Thank you for helping Teri with urine tests (yep we take “natural” pretty serious). Emily you rocked being the MC at the last minute, thank you!!! Thank you to each of the judges Margo Dustin David Candace Wanda Bodyby WillPower – your job was not easy at that table because those athletes ALL came ready!! Jolinda and Tracy the athletes all looked amazing. Thank you for being our official makeup and tan providers! And last but most certainly not least Larry and Chrissie, our mentors – oh my goodness your guidance means so much to us. Thank you for providing insight, answering questions and just being there for us over the last year as we planned this! I CANNOT wait for next year!!!
Day 7 – Do not be afraid…I have no idea how many times it is written in the bible but when you put your life in His hands it’s the only phrase you need to remember. I am not afraid..to speak, to fail, to win, to lose, to love, to learn, to try. Whatever the outcome it will either be a blessing or a lesson.

I love passive aggressive family members. If you have questions or concerns about something I’ve said or done, talk to me. Don’t talk shit to everyone else, that’s cowardly. Don’t leave notes for me to find that condemn me for something when you don’t have the whole story. Grow up and deal or grow some cajones and use your voice to speak to me like an adult. If you can’t do either of those things then leave me and mine alone. Cue the immature attack Jenni messenger messages in 3…2…1
I like to put my bible in front of me and say “God, what do you want me to know today” and then open it up. Today…just going to leave this here. 2 Timothy 3:1-5 You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!
My precious family…my tribe, my peace, heart, my every single thing. You will never understand how much I love you all ❤️ My day and night, sleep and wake…it’s all about y’all. I am so blessed, thank you God because I am so undeserving and yet humbled by your mercy, love and generosity. I love you all so much, you are so beautiful inside and out. ?
That’s my reason right there. My everything, my love. I had a photo shoot to try to capture all of my hard work and accomplishments this year and this was my favorite picture out of all of them…because without this man none of it would have happened and it wouldn’t have meant as much without him by my side. Erry Day babe!
My Dad died of cancer because he was exposed to agent orange in Vietnam. My son is still in the Air Force, he listened to his daughter being born over the phone because he was deployed overseas at the time. My brother is a veteran and has walked with crutches for as long as I can remember because of injuries sustained while serving. I can’t tell you how many friends and acquaintances i know that are fighting (and winning) through PTSD after fighting for YOUR and MY freedom. Stop hating, stop with the ugly words. Yes Trump will be President…Use your voice and your passion to guide our government…complaining about it does NOTHING…and use your prayer to seek the ONLY King, Jesus.
And this is all we need to know.. https://youtu.be/PAmh3yvmzXs I know You’re good But this don’t feel good right now And I know You think Of things I could never think about It’s hard to count it all joy Distracted by the noise Just trying to make sense Of all Your promises Sometimes I gotta stop Remember that You’re God And I am not So Thy will be done
