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!

Just Pictures and maybe some good News!

Because the Bulls are the best!  Going to the Durham Bulls baseball game is one of my most absolute favorite things to do in the summer.  I love the thought of watching baseball (sometimes it does get a tad bit boring and I find myself people watching and most of time chasing a 2 year old around), I love the music, food, drinks, and hot weather.  These games make me giddy and we had a perfect family outing together!

Just some more fun days together this summer.  My and my boy!!

We were finally able to make to down to see Tim's cousins John and Sonneri.  We made an apple pie like this together a few years ago so we decided to recreate.  You pile it so high with apples that you don't think it will ever fit in the oven.  But oh it did, and it turned out perfect!

Fun day at Jordan lake.  We took the trucks, cars, and boats and headed out to enjoy a family day at the little beach.  Jonah had a blast playing in the sand but steered clear of the water! He is not a huge fan of lakes or pools.  I am hoping next year he will be a little fish and love it!

Dad convinced him to go into the water and they found a minnow.  He was pretty excited about it!

How many trucks and cars does one need in the sprinkler.  I guess all of them according to Jonah!

We are pregnant!
This last one picture is a true testament to God's promise and unfailing love.  I have prayed from the day I lost my sweet Ellie Catherine that God would heal my heart and give me strength to move forward and continue to live and trust him.  Well my God did give me the desires of my heart.  And that was to conceive another precious baby that was healthy and perfect and all in God'd timing.  God has been all loving and my rock for the past 8 months and we found out the week after Labor Day that we were expecting a precious gift from God!  It has been a nerve racking 16 weeks with fear, doubt, and anxiety trying to control me.  But I pray against all of that and know that God is in control and I have no control over this sweet baby.  The continual prayer and reassurance that God knows best is so comforting.  I have made it to 16 weeks and so far ultrasound shows that baby looks good, has a strong heartbeat and is kicking and moving like crazy.  Every time I get to see that precious baby on ultrasound I smile the biggest smile you could imagine and dream of what he or she will look like.  To be quite honest I can't wait for the day of delivery.  I don't even care about the pain I just want that baby out and in my arms forever.  So folks stay tuned, the sweet bundle of joy is expected to arrive somewhere around May 9th!!
