This is what I want you to remember sweet girl..

* I loved you from the minute I peed on the stick..

{day and night!}

{thrifting is way more fun}
* try not to compare yourself to others.. 
{it's a joy-stealer}
* set goals for yourself
* don't be in a hurry to wear make-up
* marry someone who loves you without it.
{a guy just like your Daddy}
* remember your actions, not your belongings - define you!
* you don't need to wash your hair everyday.. but you MUST wash your face!
* a few tiny bites of cookie dough won't kill you
* go to college and get a degree you can use
* be kind!  

your Momma,
