Happy birthday to my Dad and Friday Fancies

*Today is the final day to enter my giveaway that was posted on Monday, be sure to enter you don't want to miss out on the lovely photography by Stesha!
I am up here enjoying Oregon (last minute trip) with my Sean and his team, and so lucky I get to visit another state. I cant wait to do a trip recap for you, and everyone who lives up here is extremely blessed! Those who haven't ever visited, get it on your list of must-see places!
Ok before I give a shout-out to my Dad, here is something about my family, Sean and I and his parents. On January 6 is my mom's birthday, on January 9 is my mother in law's birthday, and on January 10 is my birthday. On September 23 is Sean's birthday, yesterday was my father in law's birthday and today is my dad's birthday. How crazy is that! Was it a sign that Sean and I were meant to be together, who knows but I tell you it is super easy when I have to buy birthday cards!

I want to give a special shout-out to my dad on his birthday today. Thank you Dad for always being there for his family, for providing for us and making sure we stayed on the straight and narrow. Even when I complained I didn't need or want to take 4 years of math and science in high school, you still demanded we do. You made sure education was a priority, you showed us your family was a priority and I am thankful for all the 24 years you served in the Air Force, you were there for each of our births and never had a solo tour, we were always with you wherever you went. Thank you for being the advice I go to when I am unsure about my schooling or career path, thank you for being the rock that stays strong. You were the humor in our family that always kept us laughing and keeping things light. I love you! 
Here is my wonderful Dad.


My dad and mom


I remember at the end of this walk, you whispered into Sean's ear, take good care of her. Thank you for always being there for me. 

Finally, today is Friday Fancies posted over at Long Distance Loving and who didn't love this week's topic of boots. You can do boots during the fall, the winter, when it rains or when you just want to be cute. I didn't go with the fall trend, I was actually suppose to attend the rodeo tomorrow but since I am up here in Oregon, I can't anymore so my outfit reflects what is on my mind, the rodeo followed by line dancing. Wish I could be there!


And I love my personalized Friday Fancies sign created by Alison as well, that girl has some talent to boot, sorry couldn't resist ;-)

Awww, happy birthday to your dad!
That outfit is adorable. I shunned anything cowgirl related for the longest time (growing up in TN will do that to do a girl) but lately I'm completely embracing it!

Aw, such a sweet post! Happy birthday to your dad! Reading about what what your dad means to you, reminds me of the relationship I have with my dad. You are very blessed to have such a supportive and special one!
Love that outfit too! Boots with dresses are the best combination. I have yet to find some cowboy boots I like, but I've been trying to find some so I can have that look!
