30 Things, Day 9

 List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how
{This really is harder than I thought}
  1. My parents {of course} They helped make me who I am! Taught me to have a heart, to stand up for myself & what I believe in. Helped mold me into the parent I am today, which of course I'm a tad bias, but I'm a pretty damn good parent.
2. My sister- We had our up & downs! Honestly weren't really "friends" until our "grown up lives". She changed my thinking a little bit... I have always been a firm believer that people are who they are, they can't/won't change. She proved me wrong!

3. My hubby- God brought him into my life when I needed him. I had gotten into some trouble and lost myself, I pushed away my friends & rarely left the house. The night I decided to go out, he ended up in the wrong place ... turns out it was the right place just for different reasons. I can't thank him enough for the many ways he has influenced me.

4. M- Probably the only reason J got a date, I mean really who can turn down an adorable 3 year old asking for your digit's? She made me a better person!

5. C- I would happily go through another 26 hours of labor for her! She changed me and made me realize how strong love is. She continues to teach me things every day.

6. My boss {also known as my 3rd Mom} she has been by my side through a lot & influenced me in to many ways to list.

7. My friends- All of them in some way or another, good & bad.

8. Mr.Graves {my middle/high school guidance counselor} He always believed in me, most of the time more than I believed in myself. He knew I was going to make it & really did help me get to where I am.

9. Everyone on Pinterest- who the hell knew I was so crafty and could cook. Every husband in the world should thank Pinterest.

10. My dear MIL- showed me the type of person, mother and grandmother that I never want to be!
