About Me

My photo
I am a 22 year old who just finished my bachelors degree in Health Care Administration. I work at Mercy and am enthusiastic about starting my career. I have a beautiful family and am blessed with a wonderful man to love. (You'll know when I get a ring!) My blog is named Spoken For after a song by Mercy Me that explains my salvation in Jesus Christ. My faith defines me. I love music and plan on sharing quotes often. "Covered by a love devine, child of the risen lord. To hear you say this ones mine, My heart is Spoken For."

FAll is my absolute favorite time of year!! I can literally smell it coming on. The air is crisp and cool and I can close my eyes and imagine sipping a spiced caramel apple cider from Starbucks while pre-Christmas shopping or snuggled up in a hoodie cheering on my team at a football game!

Speaking of Football-- you may have noticed that is the theme for my pictures on this blog. My brother Corey is a Senior for El Reno this year and has been tearing up the football field with his fellow lineman. El Reno has a new coach and is doing a great job compared to years past. We actually beat Guthrie for the first time since 2000! Since my boyfriend is a Guthrian, I was beaming with pride! This coming Friday the game is in Altus, ROAD TRIP! It is so crazy to me that Corey is a Senior. I think I am more concerned about how old I am getting, rather than how he is growing up! haha. My best friend from high school, Jennifer, went to the last home game with us. It was so weird passing the student section. I did not know anyone!! I was also very annoyed with their rambunctious behavior. See, told you I am getting old!! Jennifer swears we were never that little and we just had to laugh at ourselves. Well, I hope everyone is as excited about Fall as I am. Klove said it was here at 4:18 this afternoon. Whether you spend it on the football field, picking out pumpkins, or buying new sweaters, I hope everyone remembers to enjoy this weather and take time to thank our heavenly father who so graciously provides it!!

PS- Corey is number 72. He may be 18, but he is off limits ladies! That's my baby brother! :)

Happy Birthday Dad!

*I know this is not an awesome picture but I love it because we were having fun on vacation and my Dad is Smiling so big!
Septemeber 17th is an important day in our household! It is the birthday of my Great Grandpa David and my Dad! Grandpa David will be celebrating with Jesus tomorrow while we celebrate with dad down here. I think it is appropriate to tell you a bit about my awesome dad. My dad did the usual: he attended my ball games, taught me how to drive, and threatened my boyfriends with shoutguns. What is extraordinary about my dad is that he was not obligated to so. My parents got divorced when I was young, and in the words of Forrest Gump, "Thats all I have to say about that." :) The day my dad said "I Do" to my mom he also gained two children.
Have you ever heard the saying, "The best thing a father can do for his children is love their Mother?" I believe this proposition holds true. I am so much like my mother that I can say this, there were many times that his support kept her from pulling her hair out. I won't reveal which smart-mouth teenager drove her to the edge, but she is now a respectful college graduate! :) I have recently realized that the things I love so much about Luke are things he has in common with My dad. What a blessing! I could go on and on, but I will end with this-
Here is to the years that made you you and to the many more we get to spend together. Happy Birthday Dad!
"Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday dear DA-AD. Happy Birthday to you!"

My name is Sierra and this is my first blog. I do not know much about blogging, but I do like to talk. Therefor, I figure this will be fun. I guess I should start by introducing myself. I am a 22 year old college graduate who has a boyfriend, loves her family, scrap booking, shoes, and purses. But above all of that I love my Jesus (I feel that is pretty important.) I also love music and am hoping to post some entertaining and meaningful lyrics at the ends of my posts. Although I have not figured it out yet, I plan on having a cute new background. I have wasted 2 hours on it tonight, so this will have to do for now! My life has recently changed profoundly and that has inspired me to blog. I just graduated this summer and it seemed like I walked across the stage, packed up my apartment, moved to a new one, and started a new job all in about 30 minutes!!! Actually, it was a couple of months, but that was still a lot of change in a little amount of time. I am now closer to my boyfriend and starting an actual career which are both very exciting. I also live a couple miles from one of my very best friends!! On the downside, I moved very far away from my other best friend and am no longer a student. For those who have ran the four year race, you may sympathize with the sadness I feel being in one spot from 8 to 5 and not meeting up with friends for coffee or hushed gossip in the library when you should be studying. Ahh, how I miss the spontaneity of a college schedule.

Back to the real world- I am hoping this blog will not only allow me to write down my thoughts, but also give me a way to connect with friends. My boyfriend has an older sister who blogs often. I don't get to see her much, so I like to see what she and her cute girlies are up to. (My boyfriend calls it stalking!) haha. Either way you see it, I hope that my writing can somehow inspire or entertain those who come across it.

It took me awhile to think of a catchy title for my blog, but I have decided on "Spoken For." The phrase comes from a song written by Mercy Me explaining the salvation we Christians have in Jesus Christ.

"covered by a love divine, child of the risen Lord. To hear you say this one's mine, my heart is Spoken For...."
