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!

Pictures coming soon

I just wanted to update you all that new pictures will be coming soon.  My hubby got a new computer for Christmas so he has been updating and installing everything and for some reason iPhoto is not working.  He has reinstalled, rebooted, or done whatever he does to get it up and running and is still having problems.  So Christmas pics to come soon!

Red Mountain Music - Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus

So I was looking through some of my favorite blogs and saw that someone had posted this on theirs. Yes I am taking their idea, oh well I like it! It is my new favorite Christmas song for the season. We sang it in church a couple of times this Christmas season and then did last night for the Christmas Eve service. Just take a minute and listen to the words! My sister Laura and her family are coming over tonight for Christmas Eve! There are lots of family traditions that we always did and still carry on. I will blog more about it when I get the pictures up from tonight. Merry Christmas!

Oh Christmas Tree

Here are a few pictures of our Christmas tree and the mantel that I decorated.  I wanted to do something a little different this year.  We have a bunch of red and gold balls that I love I just wanted to change it up.  Those who know me well know I love the color aqua/turquoise and I felt I needed to incorporate that into our tree this year.  So last year I found a bunch of ornaments that were aqua and silver and were a steal that I just had to have.  I had great ideas in mind so here is what I came up with.  I didn't get a very good shot of the Christmas tree because I didn't have time to mess with my camera in manuel, to get the pretty glow, but at least you have an idea of how it all came together.

Christmas 2011 Photo Shoot

I was so so pleased with how our Christmas pictures turned out.  We were suppose to meet up with our friend Jonathan to take the pictures on the 1st of December but had to cancel because our little bug got sick.  We went out to hunt for the best Christmas tree for Jonah's first Christmas and came home early due to a sad baby:(  He was fussy for most of the day and was not acting himself.  Long story short poor little guy had a ruptured eardrum.  Oh my it is so sad to see your baby sick and you don't know what is wrong with them.  But once the pressure was relieved from his ear and he was started on antibiotics, all was better with a matter of hours.  Our little man is back to himself and adorable as ever.  So here are a few shots of the Erpelding Family photo shoot.  Tim's mom Chris ended up taking the pictures and, wow, what a great job she did!  They turned out wonderful.  Thanks Mimi for the pictures and thanks for coming to visit.  We miss you!

4 Months Old!

Jonah was four months old yesterday!  I can't believe that my little boy is growing up so fast.  He is such a joy and so much fun.  Mimi is here to visit and has been a great help.  I get to sleep in a little bit, she gives him all his baths, and loves on him all day!  It has been so nice having her here, thanks for coming to visit.  Yesterday we did some shopping and then  took some pictures of the cutest baby boy!  Happy four months Jonah Bear!

Bath time with Mimi!
