    2. Sindi, this is why we're such good buddies!

  2. You were in a car fire? Scary! Andi can't believe you don't like peanut butter! Does this mean you don't like Reeses?

    1. Yes! My husband's dad's truck caught fire while I was using it to move while we were dating!

    2. Oh and yes, my husband is the Reeses lover in our house!

  3. Hahaha, that is so awesome that you had your mom write a note so you could stay home and watch BMW! I LOVE that show, it is seriously the best!

    1. I know, I'm ridiculous! I also may have thrown something at the tv when Cory kissed Lauren. .. proud moment!

  4. 1. I miss it since we dont do it anymore but i miss christmas eve at my nana and papa's house and The Gee Wiz ride on Christmas Eve where we would go look at Christmas lights. That is my favorite. 2.11th Grade History teacher Coach Smith. He inspired me to have a deeper faith in God and gave me a God's Promise book at graduation. 3. I would say I am a good singer and painter and I draw and write well. I used to be good at acting and dancing but I have not honed those skills in years and lost the talent. 4. Fall because I love cooler weather and the balloon festival and I love grabbing a cup of coffee and sitting outside. 5. Winter. Texas summers are too hot! 6. Best vacation would have to be France and Italy a few years back with my best friend. It was a cool trip and I liked seeing all of the historic places. However vacation with my family I think I have to say Sanibel. My sisters and I always had fun together no matter what on those trips and I cherish that. 7. My favorite song is Black Balloon by Goo Goo Dolls because I love that band and despite the song's meaning it is a beautifully written song. 8. My mom. I admire her strength and her heart and ability to never give up and find the good in everyone. And ability to still laugh and smile despite the circumstances. 9. Pet peeve when someone starts to tell you something then stops and says nevermind. 10. Purple which I learned is also my sisters favorite color too! 11. Joey on Dawsons Creek. I love her character and always wanted to be her.

    1. Yay purple! Yes, christmas is not the same at bobs

  5. I have only ever been to Mexico and the Bahama's as far as leaving the country. And HIMYM was the best show - hysterical!
