I am such a slacker! I have not blogged since JULY! That is un-acceptable. I have so much to tell. The most exciting thing that is going on in my life is that I AM GOING TO HAVE A BABY!! James and I will become parents sometime around July 3rd to a precious little baby girl. We have named her Piper Lane Powers. We are beyond excited about the changes that are going to take place in our lives in just a little over 3 months.............HOLY COW!! That is just around the corner. I guess I know what I am getting for my 2nd anniversary (a baby). I could not ask for anything more!!! My BFF taryn had baby Cutter in October and I am so excited that our kids will get to grow up together. They will have so much fun, but I am pretty sure we will be the ones having the fun :-) I do not have a computer at my house so that is why I have not blogged in forever. I have already been instructed by Taryn (on more than one occasion), that I need to get a computer so I can keep people updated on Sweet little Piper. Not sure if that is going to happen. I kinda like not having a computer. Guess we will see. I am sure she will be all over Facebook though so if you want to see her I guess you should probably tune in over there. I think I have rambled on long enough. Guess I will probably log back on in about 3 months :-)

Why in the WORLD would you ever make a ride like this?? I cannot even look at it without getting nauseous (sp)and sweating :-(

If you ever decide to invent a device for the GOLIATH that goes over my shoulders and straps me in I might give you another chance. I gave you a chance that one time remember?? You failed me with your little bitty LAP thingy! Like that is gonna hole these hips in that seat!!! Thank goodness I had the hubby and the BFF on the sides of me so I could hold on to there little rinky dink lap belts :-) I mean look at the people in this picture. They are barely even in their seats after the 90,000 foot drop they just went down.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for putting this ride in the park. It is my FAVORITE ride at 6 flags!!! Shoulder straps and feet straps!!! What more could I ask for?!?!?!

Oh and while we are at it, could you PLEASE install a Dress Code policy please?? Just tell the visitors that if they spen all day picking the clothes out of various crevices of their bodies that they probably should not be wearing that in your park!

Since I have been married for 12 months now I thought I would go ahead and write 12 reasons why I am SO glad I married James and why, 2nd to being baptized, it was the BEST decision I have EVER made.

1.) He is my VERY best friend
2.) He makes me laugh harder than ANYONE I know
3.) He is so handsome
4.) He is going to help me get to HEAVEN
5.) He does not fight/argue with me
6.) He LOVES my family
7.) He is SUCH a good dad to our Dogs :-)
8.) He will be and EXCELLENT dad when the Lord decides to bless us with Children!
9.) He loves me for who I am, and does not try to change me
10.) He is the funniest dancer I know........and I am glad that I am the only one he dances for, but I really wish others could see it because it truly is HILARIOUS!!!
11.) He is the Christian man that my parents prayed that I would find
12.) He was worth EVERY one of the 7 years that we dated and those who say they will not wait that long for someone to marry them may JUST miss out on the wonderful blessings that come from waiting.

These are just a few of the reasons I am so glad that I married him. I am so grateful that he chose me to marry and cannot I imagine my life without him in it. I hope I get to spend atleast 80 more years with him!!!

I WISH.......

that my husband had NORMAL working hours,

that I lived somewhere OTHER than Montgomery,

that my parents lived closer to me,

that my brother and his wife lived closer to me,

that my new puppy was potty trained,

that my car would buy itself new tires,

that it was football season already,

that i could force myself to order water everytime I went out to eat........$2 is too much to pay for a drink,

that people did not celebrate Christmas and Easter as RELIGIOUS holidays......and if they want to, i'd like for them to show me evidence of it in the Bible. Last time I checked Easter was not even on the same day every year...........idiots!!!

that there was a water park close to montgomery that is better than the one in Auburn,

that Christian woman would stop dressing like street walkers,

that people would not ay OMG.........that is so disrepectful to God,

that my best friends baby was alreay here for me to spoil :-),

This is not supposed to be a negative post. Just some things I was thinking about.
