Show & Tell Tuesday: Quirks

Today's link-up is all about the nicknames, quirks, and little details that make us who we are. 
Like always we are linking up with Andrea from Momfessionals, so let's get right into it!

{who i am}

I'm known as Brittany to most, but people closest to me call me Britt!
My favorite people in the world call me 'mama,' & it is my favorite title for sure!
Another favorite nickname comes from this sweet man...
He's called me 'babe' since early in our relationship, and it's just kinda stuck! 
My Poppy has always called me "Britt-O," & my cousins who babysat me growing up lovingly called me 'Brattney' because I was the cute, new baby that every one loved!
(that's my story & I'm sticking to it!)
My dad has always called me Princess, and he's always called my sister 'Buttercup!'
I mentioned HERE that The Princess Bride is a super important movie to my family, and it couldn't be truer!
I love the people behind these nicknames so much. They make up so many of the different facets of my personality. I'm sometimes a brat, a princess, always a mama, etc. 
 Most importantly, the title I love most is Christ-follower. 
This title doesn't mean that I am in any way, shape, or form perfect, but it means that I'm completely surrendered to Christ. He's my Savior, Redeemer, Defender, Friend.
Surrendering my life to Him was the best decision I've ever made.


Quirk is defined as "a peculiar behavioral habit," & successful lives embrace those quirks fully!
For far too long, I was insecure because of little things. 

::things i love::

Peyton Manning
British Royal Houses
Charleston, SC
Fried Egg Sandwiches on Toast with Grape Jelly
Dr. Peppers from Sonic
Sports Debates

::things i DON'T love::

Political Debates
My Hair
Parking My Car
Commercials (except on the Super Bowl)

These are just a little bit of the things that make me Britt.
Most importantly, the people that are in my life make me comfortable and loved enough to embrace those quirks & nicknames.
I am so loved!
