well, y'all....


And this is why:
1. I'm an artist with no direction, really...but lots of ambition.
2. I still live with my parents.
3. I'm single...and can't really decide if I like or dislike that.

So there it is. Plain and simple. There are bad sides to all of the above but Satan isn't gonna inch in and get me down about any of those things. Because I know I am loved for those things or despite them...

Well, guess what, Mr. Satan...I'm gonna have another dance party at Gray & Company in celebration of succeeding enough to pay yet another month's rent! Amen.

Monday Posting...

Gray & Co. is alive and well today! If any of you are like me, This is the best time of year for a great cup of coffee!! Above is the latest G&C tshirt design! YAY, COFFEE!

Anyway, Today, I'm feelin pretty awesome. Got much much much to do this week but I'm totally feeling up to it! Life is good and I have no direct complaints. The sun is shining and I have a smile on my face. Still listening to all my christmas music...gotta get prepared for our program in Decmeber at the church.

I was wondering about contentment the other day....ya know...whether it is a good or bad thing to be such. Well, I'll tell ya...I am there in a way. As much as I complain, I really love where I'm at in life right now. I do. I love what I do. I love my friends. I have much to occupy my time. I'm never bored. These are all blessings.

Come see me sometime!

Observation: There have been many weddings this year. Thus, there have been many honeymoon pictures posted on facebook. I'm willing to say that 99% of these pictures have involved a tropical beach resort-ish background location.

Conclusion: There is nothing within me that wants to go to some random island for my honeymoon. I like the beach on occasion. But again, NOTHING in me that wants a beach for honeymooning. When Mr. Unidentified and myself dash out on our post-marriage getaway, I'd prefer New York, London, or something that is more interesting to me than sand in my swimsuit. That is just not something I want to battle. I'd rather picnic in a park and catch a good show at night than go on some random excursions with native tour guides and murky water.

There are days when I feel like making lists. Today is one of those.

1. In my previous encounters with music created by Uncle Kracker, I have never been impressed. In fact, I have been terribly nauseated by his musical contribution. Until today. I'm gonna go ahead and say that I bought...yes...spent money on...two of his new songs. Please don't delete me from your blog list because of that decision.

2. The fall is in full swing. It is cold outside and every day, i'm enjoying a great cup of High Point coffee. Legit.

3. It is play time again. I'd like to invite all of you out to come see "Smoke on the Mountain" this thursday, friday, and sunday! Hilarious family entertainment. If you want tickets, let me know. I'll arrange for you to pick them up at will call. If you need incentive, I'm wearing a plaid jumper as part of my costume and playing the spoons. Amen.

4. Christmas is right around the corner and I'm already making arrangements for this! I'm going to Franklin, TN to see one of my best friends and go to "A Dicken's Christmas" downtown...pumped. AND we are working on Christmas music for our church program...some WON-DEE-FUL tunes for this year. If you want to hear some good music, come to Ingomar Baptist Church. More on that later.

5. God is good, ya'll. I don't have to tell you this for it to be true but I think that His goodness should be recognized any chance we get. To be honest, there are some areas of my life where I get frustrated because I feel like God isn't holding up his end of the bargain. But that is exactly how my little pathetic mind works sometimes. Clearly, I'm WAY off in my train of thought. Because He always comes back and pops me in the back of the head with a big ole' blessing to make me feel like a total jerk. Kinda like last weekend. I was getting frustrated because I had to attend a wedding function on my birthday...and I may have been a little bitter...but then one of my best friends threw me a little surprise party and some of the most fabulous people ever attended. Wow. That totally made my weekend. AND then the next night at the wedding, I got to dance. And as we all know...I love a dance floor and have no plans of letting one escape without me getting a little use out of it. :) So, love your friends and Praise Jesus always.
