Hello fellow LIY Lovers!!

If you're here from Living in Yellow, THIS is how excited I am to see you. 

(me, Christmas, 1995.)

Stick around won't you? 

Happy Monday! (Or Tuesday if you're reading this tomorrow.)

Love, 
Mae

PS:  Introduce yourself. I'm easily addicted to blogs and would really love to stalk you ;)
PPS: If you're wondering what gift got me that excited... I believe it was a purple Trapper Keeper or an Ace of Base record... my memory fails me.

Ashley said...

Best picture OF all time. I'm pretty sure I'm in the same pose after receiving my Ace of Base cassette :-)

Sara said...

I've popped in a few times here and there and have been following Abi's story {such a sweet, sweet miracle} for a few months now, but I am still a fellow LIY fan! This is, however, the first time I've commented... so HELLO!

One of my favorite types of pictures that bloggers post are the ones of them in their younger days. Yours, my dear, is no exception. Adorable!

You are more than welcome to stalk my little corner of the web (YouAndMeAreWe.blogspot) considering I've stalked your corner oh-so-much.

Happy Monday!

Hey, girl, hey! I personally was a total trapper keeper and Ace of Base fan as well. I named my son after the group, just kidding but his name is Ace because he is that cool.
Found ou on LIY and wanted to say hi!

I saw the sign..... opened up my eyes i saw the sign!

Alexa said...

Good lord, that picture is top five funniest I've ever seen!! I'm also pretty sure my mom has an embarrassingly similar one of me that she'll pull out to demoralize me in front of my future offspring.

Found your lovely blog via Living in Yellow, and you better believe I'm here to stay! :)

{P.S. ~ I was born and raised in TN. Tell me you're a fellow Vols fan? If so, you have my heart, for realz.}

Ahahaha. Better you than me. I still haven't gathered the courage to post my awkward '90's years. They are just awful.

This picture is killing me!! I think I got that excited when I got a caboodle. Do you remember those?? I have been a reader of your blog for awhile and am so in awe of what a strong mom you are. Seriously don't know how you do it but so glad God put you and Abi together.

You are, by far, the most amazing woman I have never "met". Your adoption story is incredible and sweet Abiella is one lucky lady she has you, your husband and your family. You definitely have a new follower. I cannot wait to see your beautiful story unfold! Thanks for sharing your world with us!

Terra said...

Wow your story is amazing!!
I'm a blog addict as well and thanks to LIY I just found my new fix! Thanks for sharing such an awesome story with us, you're inspiring!

Kate Kubler said...

I may or may not have made a ribbon Dance routine to I saw the sign.

Yep.

Brandi said...

I actually spent my night (it was actually the wee hours of the morning) a couple weeks ago reading your entire adoption story. I was in tears, I was laughing, and I was inspired by you and your story.
Erin reminding me about you and your blog is just a bonus, because I had forgotten to follow!
I can't wait to continue reading your story! :)

This is fantastic!! This picture takes me back to days were I wish that camera's weren't invented yet!! HA! Lord knows the pre-teen (and teenage and early twenties) years were not very nice to me! Pretty sure I had a hot pink and purple Trapper Keeper that invoked this same reaction!

Lots of Love,

Hilarious!! I had actually found your blog previously to the LIY post and I tell you what, you inspire me!! I have learned so much from you by reading your posts. There are not many people in the world like you and there needs to be. It would be a much better place. I can't wait to read all of your stories about Abbi as she grows and get older. She is so lucky to have you and Sean.
