Dear 18 Year Old Me,

If only I'd known what I know now....

I would tell you...

1.) Credit cards are not your friend. Cut them up!

2.) You don't have much time left with either of your Grandpas. Visit them. Spend time with them.

3.) When your Uncle offers to fly you to Hawaii to officiate your marriage, say heck yes! You can always have a reception for friends and family when you get home.(Story behind this, my uncle who lives in Hawaii married my husband and I. He offered to fly us over there, versus him and my aunt having to fly to the states for the wedding.)

4.) Moving to Oregon was the best decision of your life. Don't forget that.

5.) Your family should be priority. Stay in touch.

6.) You think you're "fat" now, ha ha, wait till you are 28. Wish I was as "fat" as I was back then....

7.) Buy a car, pay it off, keep it. Seriously, you change cars like you change your panties. It's a mode of transportation, it doesn't define you.

8.) Save your pennies for a rainy day. For goodness sakes, just start saving!

9.) You do want kids someday. Really you do.. and when you do. It will be amazing. And you will be a good Mama too. I promise.

10.) You've already met the love of your life and best friend. Treat him well. He's your rock and will ALWAYS be there for you.
