. . . I am fairly certain that given a Cape and a nice Tiara, I could save the world!

Now Introducing ...

Mr. and Mrs. Nicol!!!

That's right my sorority Lil is now a Mrs. She and her sweet hubby were married this weekend!

It was absolutely beautiful! They were married in a small chapel on the square, where every member of her family has been married. Then the reception was at her grandparents 1820s home. Her grandfather has a large lovely rose garden, that has been featured in southern living a few times, and they set up white tents over them. There was a worry that rain might ruin the day but luckily there were a few showers that morning and then the sun was out in all its glory for the rest of the day and into the evening. She could not have had a more elegant wedding!

The rehearsal!

Me and Mrs. Nicol!

After having fought to have her as my Lil Sis and loving her for the past 7 years I was so honored to stand up there with her while she married the most perfect man, the only man that God could have created just for her!

They are now off on their honeymoon in Mexico and I will be staying with their "children". Ben has left me a 3 page note while Anna's was a one liner "Don't kill us for leaving you with them, don't kill the dogs cause they are psycho, have fun and I love you". You can already see which one of them is more responsible! Haha!

Congrats you Mr. and Mrs. I love you both!!

Trucks, Sports & Dirt!

That's right I am going to have a NEPHEW!!!

Benjamin William will be here in 20 more weeks and my life will forever change!! Growing up it was just me and Sissy so we had all things girly at our house. But with the addition of Benjamin we will switch gears from dance recitals, cheerleading competitions and gymnastics practice to baseball, football and soccer games ... and I am so excited!!

Once I heard the news yesterday I left on my lunch break and immediately went shopping! I couldn't help it, I have been dying to buy stuff since we found out that my Sissy was pregnant. Both her and her hubby read this so I can't tell you just yet what all I got but it is precious!!

I wish they didn't live 4 hours away so I could talk to that sweet little growing baby bump of Sissys, Benjamin's ears have fully developed and he can hear sounds now!! If I could talk to him I would say something like this ...

My Sweet Benjamin,

I am so glad that I am lucky enough to get to be your Aunt! Yesterday I found out that you were going to be you, and I am going to love you to pieces! I hope you know just how blessed you are and how much God must love you to give you the best parents in the world. And your Grandparents … don’t even get me started on them cause we could talk for hours about how much they love you and have prayed for you, something that will continue all your sweet life. They did a great job raising your Mom and I know that she is going to do an amazing job raising you! Your Dad is one of the most incredible men I have ever met. He looks after me just like a big brother and I know that he is going to take such good care of you.

I have had the privilege of having these people in my life for the last 25 years, 3 years for your dad but it feels like he has been there just as long, and having them love me, look after me, protect me and pray for me; so I know all the wonderful things that you are going to experience by being a part of this family. However, as wonderful as your parents are there are going to be sometimes that you need to have a vacation from them and that is where I come into your life! I am going to be your safe place, the person that you can come to and tell your secrets, the one who will let you stay up past your bed time and build forts with you in my living room. I will be the one who is yelling the loudest at all your ball games. I am going to be the Aunt that builds sand castles with you at the beach and makes mud pies with you in the backyard. I cannot wait for you to get here and to hold you in my arms for the first time! These next 20 weeks until your birthday are going to seem like an eternity to me. But when you do decide to grace us with your presence I will be right there waiting to welcome you into this world with a hug, a kiss and a prayer!

I love you more than the world!

Aunt Lolly

My New Purchase!!

This weekend was very successful! I wasn't planning on it but I found and bought a car Saturday.

We had seen this car last weekend at it was a great deal! The car is an 08 and only had 15K miles on it. But ... it was still a little out of my price range. We went by just to look at it again and to see what they would offer us. After a few hours of test driving, haggling and what I thought was the end we officially bought it!

I traded in my sweet little sunfire that had been so good to me the past 10 years. It was a little sad to leave my first car sitting there at the dealership but I could not be more happy with my new Mercury Mariner sitting in my driveway right now!

Please excuse the pictures!! Like I said I wasn't thinking we would by it so I had just been running!!

Me signing the last paper work for the car!

Last picture with the Sunfire before we left!

The new car!!

How was your weekend?

Dressed for Memphis Flooding

Well the Mississippi River crested early this morning!! Now it will be a few weeks of receding and then clean up. We have been blessed and not had any flooding out in the suburbs but if we did then I was ready because one of the two swimsuits I ordered came in last night!

This is the Besty Johnston suit. What do you think?

If you watched the Today show this morning Memphis was on it! Al Roker was hanging out this morning in the flooding. Trust me downtown is pretty bad and out around Millington but most parts of the city are fine ... they just don't cover that cause it doesn't make good news.

Flooding seemed to be the topic this morning because on the "What ya doing at 201" segment this morning they asked a man about his thoughts on the flooding and Bin Laden. I love this part of the radio show!! If you missed where I have talked about it before 201 is our jailhouse downtown and we always get ... interesting people there!

Lets hope some of this sunshine and 90 degree weather clears up the flooding quickly!!

All Sunshine!!

That is pretty much how my weekend felt!!

Do you remember the days back in school when the first weekend of the summer seemed like it was the best? Well that was this weekend for me! For starters the weather was perfect. I ran in the Junior League 5k and finished in 29:40, which isn't bad for having ran a half the weekend before. Then I had a date night with Lauren where we went to dinner, to see Something Borrowed (which was AMAZING) and then my newest obsession ... Yogurt Mountain!

Sunday was of course all about my Momma! We went to church then lunch and finally opened gifts. While we were out for dinner we talked about my Daddy's new phone and I suggested that we go check out the i phones, cause I still have not jumped on the bandwagon and gotten one. After I about stroked for how much it would cost a month (about $90 plus tax when I currently pay $40) my sweet parents brought up a suggestion ...

I have had my little car for 10 years and it has been great! We bought is brand new a few months before I turned 16 and it has never had any major problems but now with 112000 miles and the fact that it looks like a teenie bopper car I have thought about getting a new one.

My first day to drive my car to school ... Mom is in the passenger seat cause I wasn't 16 yet :(

I wanted a car that made me look like a secret agent but now I need something that I don't have to ask my friends to crawl over the seats to get in! haha!

Since I am paying for school and not taking out loans finances haven't allowed me to make this purchase. So they suggested that we look at some used cars and see if we could possibly split the car note until I finish school this year!! Which I think seems far and it deserved cause I made another 4.o semester!!!

So does anyone know of a place with some good deals?

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
