Who am I?

I remember getting this video in an email my junior year of college. I. Love. It. Then and still now, it is so powerful. It is one of my favorite contemporary church/worship songs by Casting Crowns. If you haven't seen it- watch it. Even if it means you don't listen to the earlier music videos I posted.

Think about it.

"Who am I?"

If you saw my last post, you will understand this one. Love this song. Watch the video!

One of my favorite groups right now is 'The Band Perry.' I feel in love with their song "If I Die Young" earlier in the year {watch the video coming in post 2}. My favorite two songs out by them right now are this one, "Postcards from Paris," and "You Lie." Definitely check them out!

Jamaica Part 2

I'm back with more fun vacation photos. But first a little back ground info on where we stayed. The first part of our trip we went to Jake's in Treasure Beach. It is in between fishing villages. Aimee's boss stayed there in February and told her about it. We loved it. Perfect spot to begin vacation and to RELAX. So peaceful and charming. Then after three nights we drove to the North part of Jamaica to Lucea (about 30 minutes to Montego Bay) and stayed at the Palladium Resort. We really did capture the best of both worlds. Such a wonderful sisters trip.

The pictures in part 2 start after lunch on the day we were switching locations.
We got to drive thru the country side.
Looking over Lucea to our resort!
View from our room!
Sisters!!! Heading to the most hilarious dinner of all. We got sung to by Jamaican waiters dressed up as cowboys in a steak restaurant. It was the highlight of my trip. And the night I laughed so hard my eyes watered!
Our Villa
View from the adult pool.
Big pool.
Adult pool by our villa where we hung out most of the time.
Beautiful view

Last night! Love you sis and had so much fun with you. Stay warm in NYC.

Jamaica Part 1 in pictures!

Here is the first half of the week in Jamaica!!! My favorite pictures made the cut!

Night 1: We made it. And are safe at our first stop. Just a little restless from our flights.
Went to bed. Opened the door of our villa to this....

Then went to the main area for breakfast and had this view....

Walked around Jake's scoping it out.
Laid out here.

Main lobby. LOVED this place~

Went to Little Ocho for lunch near Alligator Pond. Our lunch view...

Restaurant huts.
Cold beverage and extremely fresh food. As in you picked out your fish from the cooler, lobster was frozen, and shrimp and crab were in the other coolers. Then they grilled/fried it up.
Yes friends, you may NO LONGER call me a picky eater. Because I had no other choice that to eat all of this. And I actually enjoyed it besides it being a tad spicy for me.

Back at Jakes! Sis in the hammock.
After a storm passed and right before sunset.
Proof that you can tell I actually took this photo, not stole a pretty one.
Ready for another dinner!
Our Breakfast spot at Jake's!
Mr. Omelet Chef.
View from the spa at Jakes.

Road trip time.
Yours truly driving in Jamaica. On the right side of the car. On the left side of the road. Skipping over pot holes and all.
While driving you had to dodge goats along the side of the road.

Lunch Spot!

Still at our lunch spot. Best view ever!

Part 2 coming soon!
