Yes, My Mom Knows What We Did Last Night

Yes, My Mom Knows What We Did Last Night

She helped me pick out my outfit!

I feel bad for girls who tell me they had to lie to their parents about where we are or what we're doing, your parents should be your biggest supporters through everything not just the good things. My mom is my absolute best friend and while you told your parents you were at a sleep over I told my mom the truth. I told her about that time I drove someone else's car before I had my licence and how we almost got caught. I told her about the awkward guy at work hitting on me and we planned out my whole life with him. I tell her when we go to parties or clubs and she tells me stories from when she was young and stupid. She is always watching my snapchat stories and you know that's where you post the worst things, she usually just tells me how funny my friends are. She loves me more than anything and she knows that I can make the best choices if I have a responsible friend to come to about anything, she's the first person I call with all of my drama for this exact reason.

I don't want you thinking I just have a super cool mom or a Regina George mom, she is strict and she will tell me when I'm being stupid. Instead of telling me I have the freedom to do anything and giving me the resources to go crazy or being so strict I couldn't imagine telling her the truth about my weekend, she has a real conversation with me about my choices. She tells me I'm lucky I didn't get caught driving without a license but she also tells me that I'm a good driver and that there are worse things I could have been doing. She gives me a safe place to go when I'm in trouble because there is nothing more important for a young adult in her prime mistake making years. She knows everything there is to know about me (and trust me she knows everything about my friends too) so she has faith in me because she knows I am just trying my best and living the best life I can live.

When anything happens she's the first one I want to tell. She's shown me that 10 hours and 510 miles can't keep friends apart if you really want them. She is only one call away and in 10 seconds I can hear her telling me how that girl is such a bitch and how that other girl is just jealous and that really, I am going to be fine because everything happens for a reason. And I know I will be fine because I have her. My best friend and biggest supporter.

People always say you marry your dad but for me, men are competing against my mom. If she can send me a good morning and good night text every day without fail, I expect a man to put in the same kind of effort. My mom skypes me every Thursday night to watch Grey's Anatomy together, what are you going to do to beat that? When I send her pictures of me in different outfits when I'm trying to decide on what to wear, whether that be to an interview or to a dorm party, she tells me I look like I've lost weight and gives me compliments about the different outfits: which one makes my boobs look the best, which one makes my eyes pop, ect. Boys have a high standard to live up to.

There are a million things I could say about my mom and why she is actually the best person in my life but none of them really show you how amazing she is. She is beyond words and I don't know what I would do without her, she is my everything. My goal in life is to be half as great as she is because really who can honestly tell me their mom is better than this beautiful woman?

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

To The Best Friend Every Girl Should Be Blessed Enough To Have

You definitely deserve all the love.


I have not written this letter, but it has been on my list of "to write" for forever. She keeps asking when I will write one about her and every time I tell her, soon.

Well here it is. The truth on why it took so long? No words seem to do everything justice. No matter how I put them or how I want them to sound, the page always makes them look weird and they always sound lame.

But finally, here it is. Best friend, this one is for you.

First and foremost I will start with a holy cow. We have been best friends for only a short time because who knew your "in school friend" from all those math classes would actually turn into this? We put off hanging out outside of school for years, and finally, after suffering through all that algebra we decided enough was enough.

I wish we had sooner.

I wish I had gotten more time with you before we both moved away to college - but ill take whatever time I get with you because well… you're incredible.

Thank you.

Thank you for finally agreeing to hang out with me.

Thank you for listening to every rant ever - whether it was a paragraph long text, a 2 hour FaceTime call or an hour-long car ride.

Thank you for ordering planners with me and spending nights decorating them with me (we are such losers).

Thank you for letting me become a part of your family.

Thank you for going to Friendly's, IHOP and Target at the most ungodly hours.

Thank you for encouraging me in everything I do, and stopping me from making bad decisions.

Thank you for telling me the truth, despite if it hurt me or not, I know now you will never lie about your feelings towards someone (LOL).

Basically, thank you for everything you have done for me. You have made me a better person and you encourage me to be my best self every single day.

Moving on I want to make it clear how incredibly proud of you I am. I love getting texts from you about your love for your classes, and how you want to be president of this club and president of that. How you help out kids, and how you host events. I love hearing about your major and the classes you are so incredibly excited to take. Watching you be so passionate about what you are doing and becoming makes me want to feel the same way in everything I do.

I hope someday my kids are your students because, in your hands, I know they can change the world.

Last but not least, I love you. And you're stuck with me.


Your forever number one fan
