Squad is bridesmaids. Panama City Beach Edition!

June 15, 2017

To Jason & Jill Dill congratulations on twenty-five years of marriage!

Thank you for taking SQUAD to Panama City Beach & for giving me the greatest friend of all time! I love you Carlie Jo-Ann Dill! XOXO

So basically this was my favorite day/night of Squadcation because it was vowel renewal night & our first night at pier park!

We coordinated colors last minute and all had either blue or yellow dresses to wear to the wedding which was perfect! Myka and I ran to the Fresh Market for 24 of their finest red roses for Jill & tied the cutest anchor ribbon around it. But I’m getting ahead of myself…..we started our day enjoying our usual lazy behavior at the beach. We came up for lunch which was watermelon and salt!!! After lunch, it was time to get ready for the big vowel renewal surprise! Jason & Jill were out while we started getting ready! We planned out what we would do perfectly down to the exact moment. It all went smooth until we realized I “forgot” the camera in the condo so Jason and Jill had to go down by themselves. When they got down to the beach there was a minister waiting for Jason & Jill along with their close friends Alan & Coral.

We were Jill’s bridesmaids and it was a beautiful experience for SQUAD.

The flowers in our hair were a gift from my mom for SQUAD to wear on the beach and I have to say they were a hit in Panama City Beach. We made a statement at Pier Park and were then known as the girl group of “solid tens” with the flowers. I think the flowers gave SQUAD a great beach vibe and complemented our beach hair.

Jason & Jill are a great marriage to look at as a young person because they love each other with everything they have. I love to hear them talk to each other sweetly and hear their stories from when they were younger. They keep God in the center of their marriage which is exactly as it should be. I am so delighted to know that after 25 years of marriage they love each other more than when they started their lives together.

As for Pier Park in Panama City Beach, my favorite memories were made there. We loved to get a tropical drink from the tiki bar and to walk around sipping them slowly. The sheer amount of gentlemen who complimented SQUAD was enough to drag us back to pier park every night of vacation. This night was the best because it was the flowers and the fact that we were all together again. After one whole year of not being able to actually see each other and after a year of recognizing how significant our friendship actually is.

Now for the fun stuff!!!

Destination Squadcation

June 11, 2017

Squadcation

a trip taken by a good looking group of gals close enough to be sisters, known as a super fun time where memories are made that last forever.

This one is for you SQUAD.

PANAMA CITY BEACH

You were a swell trip that will most likely be the highlight of my summer. I can’t believe God gave me such wonderful friends! I am blessed. After being back for 2 weeks I’m saying why did we even come back. Days of soaking up the sun with my besties, reading stellar books, walking miles upon miles on the sandy beach, games of spike ball, cards at night, the Panama City pier, the flirts, the sun tan glow, the virgin pina coladas, the beach waves, the pictures, the snuggles, and the deep belly laughter that won’t be forgotten. As I said before a treasure.

Day 1 was an early morning where we hit the beach and literally laid out all day. We did hit some waves, take a walk, and snap a few pictures too. My favorite was the long walk down miles of sandy shore.

I read the best book during my travel so make sure you check out the review I write later this week.

NOW FOR THE BEST PART.

GET MY LOOK

 Swim Top: high waist style w/ halter (best style for my body type) Dillard’s, similar style here!

SQUAD NIGHT ©

August 10, 2016

SQUAD NIGHT

Basically I haven’t seen my best friends all summer. I’ve been adventuring all over & I’ve missed these gals. Last night we reunited & IT WAS THE BEST. I seriously love my friends with all my heart. This whole moving to TN & being away from squad is blissful torture. I’m so excited that I’m going to my dream school & that I’ve been afforded the opportunity of a lifetime but I’m sure gonna miss my family & friends. You know if I’m just being blunt I’d just sum up this whole situation as GOODBYE’S SUCK. THEY ARE BAD.

Yesterday we went for a swim at squad house, got ready together, went to ROGERS for sushi & custard, took a joy ride, jammed to Boyz II Men on repeat, went to Walmart to buy peanut butter, hit up a friends house, did a drive by knock sing & hide, drove around some more, went home to squad house, talked, laughed, CRIED BIG TEARS, went night swimming, watched our favorite SQUAD movie, ordered breakfast pizza at 2 AM, snuggled, & SAVORED EVERY LAST SECOND TOGETHER. OH YA THEN WE CRIED ALL OVER AGAIN THIS MORNING. Gosh I love you guys.

SO READY TO BE ALL TOGETHER AGAIN SOMEDAY WHILE WE ARE LIVING OUR LIVES AS YOUNG ADULTS.

Summer Kick Off- Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, & A Thousand Horses!

May 20, 2016

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PAYTON WALTERS.

My SECOND concert EVER! Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, & A Thousand Horses were out of the park! I have to brag on the Walmart Amp for a moment, it was such a fantastic venue! I appreciate the affordability of the tickets & the friendliness of the lawn! Now that we have the Walmart Amp there is so many more options & opportunities for NWA in music! Thank you Payton for allowing us to celebrate your seventeenth birthday at the concert! I love you so much!

I’m confident that my look is a bit dressy & VERY UNIQUE. My friends rocked their jeans & boots but of course I selected something different! I selected a bohemian chic cowgirl look, because I always appreciate a more dressy look! I love this hat from FOREVER 21 & the rest of the outfit came together after I decided to wear the hat! I’m talking the details below??

Top (Bohemian Chic): Goodwill 

(the top was a dress cut to make it a top-it was the dress from my Halloween costume | fall | search in the search bar for more on that look)

Skirt: Banana Republic 

Boots: Dillard’s 

Cowgirl Hat: Forever 21 

Cow Hide Baby Purse:  Dolce and Gabbana 

Jewelry: All my great grandma’s Native American heirlooms!

MY FAVORITE SONG FROM TONIGHT WAS DIE A HAPPY MAN- THOMAS RHETT!

Candid November Day

November 24, 2015

Today was filled with eggs, bacon, coffee, varsity cheerleading, mashed potatoes, homemade gravy, & fried squirrel (that’s right we caught it, I mean shot it, with my grandpa callen early this morning!) We enjoyed a luxury day outside in the beautiful weather then took a trip to Springdale to see my cousin Sharon Loydd who is running for Senetor of Springdale, AR district. 🙂 YAY! Go SHARON. I cheered my first last home basketball game of the season against Gravette, AR @ home. We won! McDonald County Mustang basketball is going to be grand this season! I’m sad because I’m a senior but can’t wait until homecoming & ready to kick butt. Tomorrow I plan to edit pictures for my business (Studio 64843) & hopefully have a fun filled day!

In today’s pictures you can see my besties Carlie & Payton in our cheer uniforms. You’ll catch my grandfather Callen, my great grandmother Virgina (his mom) who was born today! I miss her greatly. I also included a super serious selfie & some other candids of the day.

CATCH YA TOMORROW BLOGOSPHERE.
