Day 2

I always wished growing up that I had a nickname but because of the name I have it was always hard to have one that flowed well and worked. So, with that being said there are only a few that I could think of.

Cakey - A name I was called when I was little.
Kaye - The Bellamy family calls me this on occasion now.
Olacasinobronta - I had a good friend growing up that called me this. I called her Yongi. I can't remember how they stuck but they did for a time.
Mack - Only have I ever been called this by my good friend Amanda. She's the only one that can make it flow.
T-Mack - I'll get called this by the Bellamy family occasionally.

I think that's it. No more nicknames for me.

Little Blessings

Let me tell you one thing. I married a great guy! Last night we were at Sunday dinner at my family's house and I was one again reminded of that. I love that Zach can watch sports with my dad and brother(s) while I am in the backyard chatting with my sister. It's the nicest feeling in the world that he gets along with my family. I love that. So much.

A few things:

I am so so so glad that my mom is a photographer. Zach and I wouldn't have half the pictures of Sophie that we do if it wasn't for her. Last night we took a few and they couldn't have turned out cuter. Take a look for yourself.

On another note, we have a darling neighbor who let us borrow some movies the other day. I am not a huge movie person but I ABSOLUTELY LOVED both of them SO MUCH! I HIGHLY recommend both of them. Check out the links below and watch the trailers. You won't regret it.

The Chorus:


Dear Frankie:


Give those a watch when you have a second. You'll be glad you did. Well, think that's all for now. I'll be back later. XO

Book Recommendations

In order to accomplish #8 on my summer list I am going to need some good book recommendations. I heard "Tuesdays with Morrie" is good but other than that I have nothing and I wanted a list to choose from. What are your favorite reads?
