If you all read here, then you have probably heard me talk about Sam. Same Baxter was my orientation leader, he became my friend shortly after, followed by my brother, now he is my big, and last but not least he is a guy that I truly look up to. I am a firm believer that God places people in our lives for a certain reason and I am so thankful He placed Sam in my life because as you can see he plays a pretty important role! I don’t think Sam knows how much I look up to him. I know if I ever needed anything, Sam would have my back and that is why I am thankful that he is in my life. I feel like our friendship is always evolving and I do really appreciate that! Sam is the number one frog fan, he is in the TCU commercial, he is a super proud McKinney native, 80% of the time I feel like we show up wearing at least one thing that is the same, he saves my parking spots for me, he is always down for an adventure, he loves country music, he has some pretty cool sisters, he has the best group of friends that really love him, and most importantly, there is honestly no one as cool and outgoing as Sam. Thanks for including me in your fun and letting me be your little. Also, PTL you didn’t get twins… I was really not for that idea! I gave you a Southern and Thankful shirt for your birthday because
1. I have easy access to those
2. It’s about time you got one
3. But mainly, I want you to know that I am always thankful for ya, bud!
We had birthday dinner and then there was a surprise party for some with cake, decorations, and lots of friends, but the best part has yet to come. SUPER FROG ACTUALLY GOT TO MAKE AN APPEARANCE!!! And by Super Frog, I mean I surprised Sam with everyone else and then changed into the actual super frog costume to help Sam celebrate. Yes, the pictures below do include me in the costume and yes, this is what I meant by a dream come true. Every since I retired my Rowdy the Ricebird wings, I have been dying to put on that Super Frog costume!!! And I couldn’t have asked for a better time!! Maybe I will get to do it again soon… Sure did bring back a lot of great memories!!
Yay for Sam and yay for Super Frog. Happy Birthday, my friend. Seriously thank you for being in my life… It would not be the same without ya! I hope you had the best birthday yet! I and many others are very thankful for you and the light you are!
P.S. – I usually don’t post on insta for the people’s birthdays when they didn’t post for me, but I made an exception for you AND dedicated another blog post to you…Consider this pretty special! 😉
Southern and Thankful
