I'm a happy RN married to a hardworking resident. We have recently become Carolina fans and are adding the color "carolina" blue to our wardrobe and home. I love the east coast and couldn't be happier living in hot, sticky climate. I was raised on a farm/ranch with two wonderful parents and three fun loving older sisters. I went to a one room country school house down the dusty dirt road with grand total of three in my class. Life in the country was rich, meaningful, and simple, just the way I like it. So from country farmgirl to coastal bell, here I am, living life and loving it!

Disney World and Babymoon

Our first exciting meal in Downtown Disney, Rain Forest Cafe!!

And our first day at Disney World.  We stayed at the Hilton which we got to partake in the extended hours of Disney.  We were up at 6:00 am, on the bus at 6:30, and at Disney by 7:00am!

Tim rode Splash Mountain by himself. I couldn't because I was pregnant.  It was fun to watch him come down and I got to take some good pictures of him!

I love the movie "Cars."  It was Better Homes and Gardens Festival of Flowers the week we were at Disney.  So all throughout Epcot there were characters made out of flowers.  It was so fun to see.  So I had to take a picture of "Mater!"

We got a picture in "Italy."  Tim's family line!:)

A finish to a fun day at Epcot

While Tim rode the Tower of Doom I went to see my all time favorite Disney Movie play "Beauty and the Beast."  It was great acting and wonderful music.  I might drag Tim to this next time we go!!

Baby Bump!

The last few days of our baby-moon, we went down to Sarasota and stayed with Tim's grandparents.  It was so nice and relaxing and a good time to visit with them.  They are both always so sweet and welcoming!  So that was the last big trip before sweet  Baby Boy Erpelding is born.  We are so thankful as well because we celebrated our third anniversary.  And it has really been a wonderful three years.  We have enjoyed some fun times together and really have enjoyed life as a very happy married couple.  Happy Anniversary Tim, I love you!!

New York, New York

My girls and I for a fun filled weekend in New York.  We are standing in front of some buns. Yes buttocks.  Our fist stop Museum of Modern Art.  We were very amazed at the interesting bits of art, and well we laughed a lot.  Finally after exploring some very interesting things we finally found Monet and Van Gogh upstairs.  That was art we were looking for.

I believe this is St. Patrick's cathedral.  What a beautiful building.  There were so many details that were fascinating.

A little bit of shopping at H & M, and believe it or not no one bought anything.  But we did have some fun while in the store.

The beautiful city lights of New York.  It was overcast and rainy on Saturday so I captured some of the weather in this picture.

We are ate at this amazing French Restaurant in SoHo.  The girls all had fun drinks and don't worry I just had pineapple juice.  It was a $5 pineapple juice, but worth it.  

And of course a nice walk to Time Square.

We really had a great trip.  I went with four of my dear friends from work and some of my best friends since moving to North Carolina.  I am amazed at how many wonderful people I have met while living here.  And it is pretty cool that we all get along so well and work in the same place.  Anyway a great trip enjoyed by all.  Our next trip is going to either be the beach or lake.   So more pictures and fun to come!
