Grandmas Are Super Moms!

And I have the most Super Mom EVER.
She's my 82 y/o Best Friend!

Everyone says that I am JUST like her, which makes me very proud.
As a matter of fact- Grandma and Grandpa eloped too ;)
 Hmm...I wonder who I got that from?
They parented these two, and the one on the left ended up parenting me:

A couple o'foxes!
They look like twins to me, which is funny because they were both separately adopted as babies....Yep, my grandparents gave the best gift you can give: love for two children that weren't even theirs. Let me tell you...I wouldn't be here or near as awesome if it wasn't for my grandparents.  
They raised Daddy and Aunt Edie right, and in turn they helped me become who I am. 
By the way, by awesome, I mean tender-hearted, giving, understanding, patient, loving, honest and loyal.  
Those are the kind of traits that I find AWESOME.

In honor of Mother's Day- I dedicate today's post to her, but I must also thank my MOMMA for being the other guiding light in my life!! Where would I be without you?!?!

If I told you how old she is...You wouldn't believe me!
Let's just say- that's a picture of her with my BIG brother and we also have a BIG sister! I'm 26, so you do the math.

To all the mom's out there...Thank you for ALL that you do.  As a mother to Weiser- I go crazy, so  I can't even imagine taking the life of a child or their mental and spiritual growth into my hands.
I SERIOUSLY applaud you...You deserve this day <3

So as for yesterday's post, Mallory is the only one that had the official right guess!
#1 Is true because I met Randy Jackson when he was the Grand Marshall in the Ft. Lauderdale boat parade! When  Miss Miami and myself were taken up to meet him, he heard me sing and decided to put me on the mic! Such a thrill.
#3 Is true because when I was on a flight from Ft. Lauderdale to Tampa, we had an engine die, the cabin caught on fire and when we tried to land the landing gear wouldn't go down!  It was more like a belly flop, but there is no such thing as a plane fender bender. It's all or nothin'.
That leaves #2 as my lie! I have a BA in English, thank you very much ;)

To all my silent ranks...I hope you enjoy your day too! We deserve it.

Have a great weekend y'all!

So awesome that you have such a great relationship with your grandma. What a good hearted family you come from! I actually never really knew either of my grandparents so it's kind of a foreign concept for me.

Can't wait for you to be a mommy one day (to baby boy or girl)! xoxo.

This is a really sweet post.

My Grandmommy adopted my mom and uncle from separate families, too. Although they don't look so much alike as your dad and aunt do!
