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!

I met my friend Staci at a splash park close to our house on Friday. It was fun to finally meet up with her and let the kids play. She has two little boys, Grayson and Nate, and Jonah is in-between the two in age. It was so nice to hangout with someone who has boys!!! She totally gets me, she totally gets Jonah, rough housing, dirt, wildness, running, and everything little boys do. It was relaxing because Jonah and her boys just ran around the park and played in the water. We were the only ones there for a good hour and a half so it was so nice to chat and not worry about the boys getting into something. I really enjoyed our time together and look forward to the boys being boys again.

We had a different fourth of July this year and it was so fun to change it up. Instead of the usual BBQ, stuff your face, and then watch fireworks (which I love all of the above) we decided to go to Charlotte for the day with the Mosley clan. Our goal was to meet up at Ikea, shop around, and then head to the Discovery Children's Museum. Well we made it to Ikea, spent way to long chasing kids, browsing and looking at everything and ended up not making it to the museum because it closed at 4:30, stinker. Oh well Ikea was great and we ended up going to Bass Pro Shop and stayed there for almost 2 hours. There were boats, 4-wheelers, side-by-sides, and other things to climb on and check out. The kids had a blast doing that so we figured it was great for them to be entertained and run around and get all their energy out. Then on our way home we stopped in Burlington and ate at "Little Italy." It was pretty good. One of Tim's patients told him about it and he was been wanting to eat there since ever since. We headed home and didn't get Jonah to bed until 9pm, and I payed for it that night. Oh well, you have to skip your routine every once-in-awhile. We didn't do the fireworks which I was super bummed because I LOVE fireworks, but we knew it probably wouldn't be much fun for Jonah. Maybe next year!
Happy Fourth of July, 2013!

Last week the weather was great. Sunny, warm, so many fun things to do outdoors. This week it has been awful! It has rained everyday since Sunday. That makes it hard for this momma to keep the little man entertained inside all day. But we somehow managed. These pictures are from last week when it was nice out. You would think since it rained all week I would have posted these pictures sooner, since were stuck inside all day, but I was probably wasting time on pinterest or something. Anyway here are some pictures of Jonah painting and playing with bubbles, some of his favorite things to do!
