REASON BEHIND BLOG: My life story starts out like most people’s, I went to college and got my Associates’ in Paralegal studies… but my heart wasn’t into it. It was a random pursuit in a desperate time of trying to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. My interest in makeup sparked towards the middle of being in college. I stumbled across a random Youtube video by Kandee Johnson for a makeup tutorial on Marilyn Monroe. I was amazed at what a person could with makeup and my fascination with it lead me to buying products and just practicing, practicing, practicing. I’m rather humble about my talent, but I boast in the fact that it’s all God! All glory goes to Him, even with working a makeup brush haha :). I’m excited to see where He leads me, whether this turns out to be a life-long career or just a hobby of mine. If you’re wondering why my blogger name is makeuP3130, it’s because of Proverbs 31:30, “Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” Our true worth and beauty is found in the One who creates us!
My sister Nicki is my…
Best friend. Role Model. Encouragement. ‘Partner in Crime’. Other half. My shoulder to cry on. The only person in the ENTIRE world whom I can share everything with. When it comes to our sense of humor, no one can even compare haha! We could laugh for hours over absolutely nothing… :). She’s everything I could ever ask for in a sister and so much more. I’m the older one, but she feels like the older sister. If you need proof of God’s existence, you’ll find it in my sister’s heart. She inspires me every day and I’m so excited to see where God leads sissy! Hopefully when He is done with her, He will give her back to me (lol She plans on doing missions work).
Eric a.k.a “love of my life!”
Besides my sister, I have found a best friend in my fiance Eric. We’ve been together since June 13, 2007! It’s been almost 5 years that we’ve been together and boy has time flown by… haha I mean that in a good way though:). I feel so blessed to have Eric in my life, he has the biggest heart of anyone I know and has always taken care of me. We’ve basically grown up with one another seeing as we started dating as teenagers, so we pretty much know each other like the back of our hands. Don’t ask me when the wedding date is, we’re still trying to figure that one out!
Incredibly gorgeous engagement & wedding ring set from Zales <3!
Mommy and Daddy
If it weren’t for these two people and God, well, I wouldn’t have life lol. I know most kids will say they have the ‘best parents ever’, well it’s legit when I say it. Despite our differences, we’ve always loved one another. Fights don’t last long in this family. I don’t think it really got planned out this way for the picture, but isn’t it awesome how Christ is in the center of our family?!
Tim, Virginia, Elizabeth, Caitlyn, and Hannah…
I hate to admit this, but I actually love these people haha. Seriously though, this is my brother, wife, and his three precious girls… which are my beautiful nieces! I’m proud of these girls, you may not be able to see why in this picture… but take my word for it when I say that have the most precious hearts ;)! My brother isn’t too bad either, he’s actually got an amazing heart as well.
