Welcome! My name is Mrs.G and I started this blog so people could share in my mis-adventures in wedding planning. I married my southern gentleman on September 6th, 2009. Throughout our courtship I became enamored with everything southern and desperately want to become a steel magnolia.

30 Things: 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self

List 10 things you would tell your 16 year-old self, if you could: 
this is 17 year old me.... close enough 

1. YOU ARE NOT FAT! you are spending so much time agonizing over what other people are thinking about you and your weight. It's not worth it, you my dear, are not fat. So stop starving yourself, get off the treadmill (which you have been on for 3 hours) and just be happy with YOU.

2. Go out for more solos and roles. It's what you want to do, it makes you extremely happy, stop thinking about it so much and just jump in!

3. Be more mindful of who your friends are.  You have, for the most part a great group of friends but you should be focusing more on the friendships that are going to last longer than graduation. Instead of people who, as soon as they toss their cap are going to drop you like a bad habit  or the people that you think are making you more popular. 

4. Don't put off going to college, RUN, GO, FINISH! 

5. Do what you want to do not what your family tells you what they think you should.  Stop listening to Dad, just go to OU and work on getting your degree like your plan says. 

6. Practice/study more, you aren't happy with how you are doing in a certain area.... do something about it. 

7. This weirdness you think you are exuding, that is the real you, embrace it. 

8. If you would stop putting yourself down for one minute you would see that boys actually like you but because you are so insecure they move on. 

9. Speaking of boys,  Stop thinking you are never going to find someone, first of all you are 16 and have time. Secondly,  You are about to meet the boy of your dreams, but remember you still are allowed to have a life and keep your options open until it gets serious ( he did) . 

10. You are so much more beautiful than you know. Inside and out.
