The Family - my family is absolutely my life! I have a very big close family that all live in Louisiana, and I reside in Austin, TX.

Who I learned practically Everything from: MY FOUR BROTHERS
Jeff - When I was born, Jeff was so excited to have a little sister! He would put me on the bed in my car-seat and with all his friends we'd jam out to rock n roll all day long! He has always been there for me with the most sincere honest advice and spiritual guidance, and I'm so lucky to have that in a big brother! Some fun memories I have is my very first boyfriend dissing Jeff's car he had at the time, and making me (virgin of course) strawberry daiquiris on football Sundays.

Chris- Oh Chris. By far the craziest person you'll ever meet! I've never had a dull moment with Chris. From the time I put Flintstones stamps all over his room, boxers, books for school, and CD covers while he was babysitting me to now the times and talks I'll never forget with him! He and I have always been very close, he's definitely the "big brother" type who wants to fight the boyfriends and play protector, and I love it! My dad always wanted Chris as close to me as possible to keep me safe. He's my best friend, and my only Austinite sibling! It also helps that we share the utmost same taste in music. #WIN
|Nick and Chris (as you can tell from pics, he's the crazy one...duh)|
Nick- Ohh Nick. Nicolas! My sweet baby brother! Nick is 22 years old and living in Baton Rouge taking care of my mom and little sister! I'm sure if you ask him, most memories of us as kids I was the big bully sister always coming up with ways to torture him, cause that's what you do right!?! I'm the worst, I know. He is a musician and I've never seen someone believe in their music like Nick believes in his. He's so passionate and very understanding. We've grown very close through my parents divorce and my dad's last few months. In so many ways I look up to him for all that he's been through in his life, and I am so proud of the man he's become. He is a rockstar.
Colin- Colin is 13 years old and pretty sure he is the coolest kid I've ever met. He is not blood-related. His dad, Roger and my mother dated for several years, and mostly through Colin's younger years - so of course he is and will always be my little brother! I loved to go watch him play hockey, beat him in madden (if he read this he'd totally kill me -- I really wasn't all that great! ;-) ) and just hang out with him! He totally gets told that he looks just like Bieber, and he hates it! I love him soo much and I hope we always remain close! He's going to be a heart-throb in a few years - I already know it!
Isn't he the cutest????
Annnd in addition to all of the boys, I also have a baby sister. Call us the Brady brunch.
Maddie- I was so so excited to have a little sister! We shared a bedroom growing up and I totally took full advantage to show her all my ways! I am roughly 10 years older than Maddie. I used to sing to her, tell her all my secrets, and make her listen (yes, I locked her in my room lol) to listen to all my favorite songs -- which by the way are now hers!! She now is 15 (ugh can you believe it!?!) and already having boyfriends! It freaks me out, but I'm blessed to be there for her as she experiences her teenage-hood and I love our talks and wish we lived so much closer so we could hang out more! She is definitely spoiled rotten and has a psychotic malti-poo named Peaches. Ha! She is literally my other half and I am SO blessed to have Maddie as my bestest best friend today. We travel together and she spends weeks at a time in Austin whenever she can. Pretty sure I'm winning the #MaddieisgoingtoUTforCollege campaign, too. ;-)
There are few people in this world I feel like I truly just couldn't live without. These girls are my life. Through ups and downs, queso & margaritas, songs from 1999. Made up songs, shadows on the wall. Wine nights. Gosh, these girls make my heart pittah pattah.

|Jennifer, Me, Denise, Lacy... I just LOVE these girls.|
|Denise. My D. My little #turntup twin. We are the same person. Words can't describe how much I love my little half mexi to the moon and back. From wine nights to MORE QUESO, I can't live without her. #soblessed|
