Hooray for the Fam!

  
Oh, boy, how I love Christmas.  This Christmas can't be summed up in words.  It was just fabulous.  Hooray for the Family! They made it amazing.  We were together and shared our usual traditions of Mexican food, SINGING (Yes, we can sing.  We are basically amazing. Ha ha.), opening gifts on Christmas Eve.... And of course Santa paid us a visit in Binger, Oklahoma! ;)


Yes, Ry looks sooooo thrilled to be in the pictures.  I love my cousin :)




The Brothers... Daddy Bart & Uncle Wes. Two funniest people you will ever meet.



Lovely sisters.  Yes, I love my little minnie me.




And to finish it up..... Me smelling my new boots.  No, I don't have a foot fetish, so don't ask... I just really like the smell of new boots!  There is NOTHING wrong with that.






AND..... to top off the best week of the year.... I met my roommate for school at WTC next year.  I love her already.  Yep, I'm living the good life right now.... Bring on 2011! :)

What a Wonderful Life...

This past weekend cannot be described in words.  FINALLY Hayes made his way back to DFW!  I saw him for the first time in over a month... How lovely :) We spent the weekend shopping, watching fellow happy holiday-ers fall clumsily together while ice-skating around a fabulous Christmas tree, and doing what we do best.... eating!  What a wonderful weekend together! :)




We had a Merry EARLY Christmas together :)





He thinks his new haircut is cool.... Well, ok, so do I :)





AND on top of being soooo flipping cool, he knows how to read minds when picking out Christmas presents.... Total package. Hehe :)

How he knew I wanted these EXACT Uggs, I will never know.







PLUS.... my Pandora bracelet & necklace.  Lucky girl?  Mmmmhhhhmmmm. :)



A wonderful boyfriend...

What more could I ask for?

A Pomeranian puppy in a few years?

But he already knows that.

The Best Day with You...

Dear 6th & 7th period Dual Credit class,

I love you all so very much.  Something sneaky is always taking place.  From texting each other across the room about the Jolly Green Giant's hooker, to blurting out "Dick's" for every answer in Taboo, we know how to keep it interesting.  I can't even describe in words how much you mean to me, and how wonderful this first semester has been... I will miss this class oh so very much, but I CANNOT wait to walk across the stage and graduate with you all.  We've come a long way over the years, and our time together is almost through... So grab each other's hands while we still can, and jump into the LAST sememster of our SENIOR year.



















I love you all.

Better late than never...

Although the event I'm about to share with you took place TWO months ago, it is very important that I share.... better late than never.... right?  In October, I was lucky enough to travel from an itty bitty town in the Lonestar state, to the loud and chaotic city of Indianapolis, Indiana.  With 54 other Texas FFA members, I had the chance to reach out to other FFA members across the nation and spread my love of agriculture and the FFA.  I had finally reached the National FFA Convention, along with 50,000 other members of this wonderful organization.  Over the week we would put our leadership skills to the test through numerous workshops, delegation meetings, convention sessions. It truly was the week of a lifetime.  I spent long hours with 54 of my closest friends who all share a common passion: Serving others.  Together we met kids from all across the country, "from the state of Alaska to Puerto Rico, and from the state of Maine to Hawaii," who had one common love.  Together, we reached our "Infinite Potential."

Dedicated To...


The past few weeks, I have HORRIBLY negleted my blog... Yes, I know, I have done the unthinkable.  However, to my defense, the past few weeks have been incredibley hectic.  I have experienced an absolutely WONDERFUL 18th birthday, a glorious Thanksgiving with my family, the happieness in victory, the disappointment in defeat, and the wonders of emotion.  The next few days will be dedicated to the recap of the emotional rollercoaster I have experienced..... but I am making you wait one more day.  My PRECAL binder is still lying on my bed (unopened, I might add!) and the trig functions are calling my name.  Upsetting? Yes, I know.  I will leave you with one last thought tonight: Put on your armor & dedicate your life to HIM.


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.



~Ephesians 6:10-17

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Inspired By.... The HOLIDAY SEASON!!

***(Please note: As I am blogging, YES, I am listening to Christmas music... I am already in the spirit!)


As I was driving to school on this terrific Tuesday, my life, for the year of 2010, became complete.... I heard the VERY FIRST Christmas song of the season, on the radio.  Oh joy!  My favorite time of the year is coming about-- The Holidays!  Along with the outstanding food, giving thanks for all in our lives, joyful music, Christmas trees, lights, busy shopping days, and cozy warm nights-- great family time will be experienced!  I come to find as the year gets closer to ending, my crafty side always peaks... Possibly because the winter holiday atmosphere makes me incredibely happy! As I anticipate the 2010 Holiday Season, I must share some of my favorite things:


Music: It is critical to have the BEST Holiday music during this wonderful season!  At the top of MY list--

Bing Crosby of course!


Following close behind, but can't quite catch up to my number one man--

James Taylor & Frank Sinatra!



It is of the most importance that these 3 classic artists make it to the very top of your Christmas playlists, as well!  Also, for you country fans, Martina McBride has spectacular Holiday albums as well!


To warm your soul:: Starbucks Hazelnut Hot Chocolate.  Try it; don't blame me for the addiction you will obtain.... Don't say I didn't warn you!  I'm in search of the PERFECT homemade Hazelnut Hot Chocolate recipe.  I think the search is over!  It will be tested this weekend and hopefully ranked with success!!  If perhaps the recipe becomes a complete failure, I can always rely on my ever so delightful Starbucks!



To warm your spirit during frigid days:: Oversized "grandma" sweaters... and yes, I do call them "grandma sweaters."  Mixed with knee-high boots & the perfect scarf, you can never go wrong on a cold winter day!  I cannot get enough!  Some of my favorites:














To warm your heart:: White Christmas... possibly one of the greatest movies ever produced.  It must be watched at least 3 times over Christmas week!









To warm your soul:: For the creative minds out there... Homemade wreaths and stockings:












Just a few of my favorite things!  As the Holiday season begins, let us be thankful for family, friends, and the love we share.  As we continue on with our lives, never forget the true meaning behind this time of year!


Let the happiness begin! :)

Hold Us Together

My Life Inspired By.... a song.


There are very few songs that cause me to hit the "repeat button" time after time. However certain bits and pieces of some special songs hit a chord in my heart and either make me bust out in a killer dance move, or throw back my head in worship.  I want to thank Matt Maher for the inspiration he brings me in this song. "Hold us Together" hits me hard, and gets me thinking about the different people in the world around me. To end this week and bring a little joy right into the weekend, here you go:  for your inspiration and listening pleasure:






by: Matt Maher




It don't have a job

Don't pay your bills

Won't buy you a home

In Beverly Hills



Won't fix your life

in 5 easy steps

It ain't the law of the land

 or the government

But as soon you needed.


Love, will, hold us together

Make us a shelter

to weather the storm



And I'll, be, my brothers keeper

So the whole world will know

That we're not alone



It's waiting for you

Knockin' at your door!

Every moment of truth

When your heart hits the floor

 

When you're on your knees then...


Love, will, hold us together

Make us a shelter

to weather the storm



And I'll, be, my brothers keeper

So the whole world will know

That we're not alone



This is the first, day of the rest of your life

This is the first, day of the rest of your life

'Cause even in the dark you can still see the light

It's gonna be alright, s'gonna be alright



Love, will, hold us together

Make us a shelter

to weather the storm


And I'll, be, my brothers keeper

So the whole world will know

That we're not alone.




l.o.v.e.... It's that simple.

My Life Inspired By.... love.


Now is the time to introduce you to a person who inspires me everyday, although he may not realize it.  Hayes Hall.  He has a sparkle in his eye, and a life full of laughter.  Hayes has shown me what it truly means to live.  Every morning at 9:30 I recieve an inspiring text message from this amazing person.  He taught me to believe in myself... and in karma. He picks me up when I am down.  He shows me love and a passion for life, which is all my eyes really need to see. 




Although the future is unknown, I know he will do whatever it takes to keep love alive.  He took the blindness out of my weary soul. and brought me somewhere beautiful.  For this, Hayes Weston Hall, I thank you.  Thank you for your love, your laughter, your faith, your passion, your smile, your tears, and most importantly, your heart.






Thank you, Hayes.

Inspiration

My name is Morgan Ann Stover.... and my life is inspired. 
Inspired by the people I meet, the places I go, the things I see, and the world all around me.  I find inspiration in big things, small things, near things, and far things.  Inspiration in tall people, short people, colorful people, and plain people. In music, nature, fashion, sunshine, and color.  I find inspiration in just about everything I see.  Now there is a place where all these inspiring things come together in one spot... My Life Inspired By....



My Life Inspired By.... a quote:





Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.  Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.  It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most.

My deepest fear is not that I am unsuitable to what I dream.... that I am too much for the little expected.... The greatness I could possibly achieve is what frightens me the most.  I first heard this quote on the movie Coach Carter. I would stop and rewind the scene over & over, to hear the lost boy speak these words; words that prove relevant to my life at this very moment.  My life is inspired by 30 words.  It only took 30 words for me to stop & think.... what will it take for you?
