This is a picture of me with my 3 M's. I call them my 3 M's because there names are Melissa, Matt, and Morgan. :) Of course you know by now that Morgan is my sweet, adorable, and loving husband. Matt is Morgan's brother and Melissa is soon to be Matt's wife. They are getting married this November 29th and we are all super excited about it. When I married into this family, I gained the best brother in law I could have ever asked for. He has helped us soooo much with remodeling our "old farm house." He built this amazing entertainment center around this yucky old fireplace that was falling apart. I have to admit, I was about ready to give up on this house when it came to the living room. I had no clue how it would ever be "livable" for us. The ceiling was falling down, the fireplace was falling apart, and it needed a serious paint job. Luckily, we have Matt in our lives who saved the day and built the entertainment center and helped Morgan fix our ceiling. Now it's so wonderful! It's my favorite room in the house and I NEVER thought I would say that!!! Melissa is a great girl and I couldn't imagine a more perfect girl for him. Here lately we have had the pleasure of hanging out with them more and through this, I have come to really enjoy their company and see how perfect they are for each other. The main activity that the 4 of us do is cook out and sip on some nice cold beverages. Matt is our bartender and makes us some great drinks! Matt, if you ever read this, will please stop bringing Lillie "treats." Matt's version of a "treat" for Lillie are either live or dead things he finds around out here in the country. For example, one time he called me and he was on the way over with a "treat" for Lillie. It was a snake in a jar. Then just a few days ago he had me come outside because once again he had a "treat" for Lillie. This time I was onto him and knew better. He pulled 3 freshly cut cow legs out of the back of his truck. Really? Seriously? Gross!!! I think Matt just gets a kick out of me and how I react to it and finds it quite funny...but it's not!!! Anyway, so these are the 3 M's in my life and I am so thankful to have them!!!

I call Christy and Stacey my "Pappasito's Girls" simply for the fact that we have chosen to meet there every time we get together. There's just something about the table side guacamole that we just can't resist! I actually have known these two girls for quite some time. I can't remember if we all went to elementary school together, but I do know we went to Junior High & High School. I, unfortunately, lost touch with both of these beautiful girls after high school. But oh how grateful I am for classmates and myspace. Stacey and I regained touch a few years back, I am guessing 6 years back. I found my sweet Stacey on classmates and contacted her immediately. She was my bud in high school and I missed her. Over the past 6 years we have kept in touch and try to get together frequently for lunch and some shopping. Christy and I regained touch on myspace. Ever since then, the three of us like to meet for lunch and have great girl time. Christy has a little girl Maddie, who is absolutely adorable, who sometimes joins us and she's so good that we hardly even notice she's there. She's the most "girly girl" I have ever seen and it's absolutely adorable. Christy~she's ALWAYS welcome at our lunches!!! So, I am so thankful for the creators of myspace and classmates for bringing the three of us back together!!!!!!

Morgan and I have been blessed to each have wonderful parents! My parents have been married for 40 years and are the best example of a Christian-loving marriage I have ever seen. They are truly the best people I know. They have been there through everything with me, the good and the bad. They always know the perfect thing to say to make it all better. I have gone through some hard times in my life and they have always helped me keep my faith strong in God when I could have so easily doubted. My mother is the sweetest lady you could ever meet. My friends always fall in love with her when they meet her. She would do anything in the world for me! She is my rock and the person I turn to when my world falls apart. I honestly don't know what I would do without her. My dad is the most amazing man I know. He would drop whatever he was doing without question and come to my rescue. I always joke that when I am 50 and have a flat tire, he will be the one to save the day. Yes, of course I have my wonderful Morgan, but I think there is just something about how a daughter will always need her dad. My dad is not only there for me, but he is there for everyone. We all know that if we ever need anything, he will be there. Also, he can make the BEST chocolate chip cookies you could ever have!!! I love my parents with alllllllllllll of my heart and I hope and pray they know how much they mean to me. They have always made my life easier and some may call me "sheltered" but I am completely fine with that. I am thankful to God every day that he chose me to be their daughter!
Morgan's parents are also great. He's sleeping right now or I would ask him how long they have been married. They are college sweet hearts. When you are at the Airhart house there is never a dull moment. His mom is very out going and has never met a stranger. His dad is more laid back and quiet. They have been wonderful to me and have accepted me with open arms and as one of their own. I feel blessed to have such wonderful in laws! This picture of all of us was taken right when we got back from Jamaica. His mom will probably kill me when she sees it, but it's the only one I have of the 6 of us together.

Hallowen happens to be one of my favorite holidays. Yes, I know, kinda weird. I think it's because Fall is my favorite season and so I relate Fall and Halloween together. Plus, I think it's just fun to dress up. This year Stacey and I went Halloween shopping and I couldn't find anything for Morgan & I to wear that just really screamed at me. I was about to give up when I saw a white trash outfit. That's when I realized that is what we would be going as for Halloween. Morgan hates it when I say this, but what he wore is pretty much what he wears every day. No, the cigarrettes are not real, but they did blow out white smoke which is kind of neat. We had these crazy hickey tattoos that Stacey and I thought were hilarious. Everyone loved them except they kind of looked like burns. Oh well! We had fun!!!

This is my fantastic, wonderful friend, Jill. We swear we were separated at birth! We are soooooo much alike that it's quite interesting. I'm posting this picture because she's such a great friend of mine but she was the one snapping the crazy picture of us in sunglasses so she didn't get to be a part of it. I met her this past January at Plano Presby and I swear I feel like I have known her forever!!!! She's hilarious and she is one of those girls that just "gets me." I'm so thankful that God had our paths cross because she's such a beautiful girl, on the inside and out!!!! Love you JIll!!!!
I am a girl who absolutely loves my girls and would do anything in the world for them!!! I think you can never have too many friends. Friends are my support system, bouncing board, and just "get me" when my own man can't understand me, because after all, he's a man. :) I love how I can be silly, as seen in this picture, without ever being questioned about it or laughed at because after all, they are right there with me without question. I don't know what I would do without allllll of the great girls that I have in my life. Like I have said, good friends are hard to find. Great friends are even harder to find. Thank you God for richly blessing me with both kinds! I feel so blessed to have these wonderful people in my life! Y'all mean so much to me and I love you all!!!!!!!
I just married my soul mate, best friend, and the best man in the world, next to my dad, on May 3, 2008! I feel like I am the most blessed girl in the world and am so thankful that God chose me to be the lucky one to be Morgan's wife! He was well worth the wait and the broken hearts that I had to endure to get to him. He is definitely my better half. He is such a patient man and I hope to some day develop that myself. Morgan is a very forgiving man and has this unconditional love for me that I have only had from my parents. We're now living out in the country with our Lillie Bear...aka our pug...and she's our little baby. Morgan pretends that Lillie is not his, but yet deep down I can tell how much he really cares about her. It's actually pretty cute to watch the two of them together. Our next plan in our lives is to start a family. If Morgan had it his way, we would already have our own little one on the way. I, on the other hand, want to enjoy "us" before we add a precious little one to our family. I do hope and pray that God will trust us with one of His own little ones some day soon. I feel that is one of the greatest gifts we can have during our short time here on earth, to raise a child to be a child of God.
