All But Standing on Her Head

Sunday we got an exciting call!! My Sister called to tell us that she was having contractions all morning. We immediately left church and grabbed our bags and started driving to Cookeville!!
At the hospital she got hooked up to the fetal monitor and they confirmed that she was having contractions every 4 minutes. However, after about an hour and a half they told her that she had not progressed any so she should go home and wait until her water broke or until her contractions became more intense. So after two hours of driving we got the call and turned around to come back and wait for the real call! It was a good practice round though :)
Today she had her doctor appointment. She is 4 cm so when he does come she can go ahead and get meds as soon as she arrives at the hospital, lucky girl! We have 10 days until Ben's due date; however, the doctor has decided that if he is not here by next Wednesday then they will induce her. More than likely he will be here before then.
Sissy has been walking and eating spicy food to encourage him to come on out. She has done it all but stand on her head. Do any of you have any suggestions for her?
He will be here soon!!!! I can't wait to meet him!!!

Be My Guest!

Candice decided last week that we were going to play a game. Everyone had to come up with a list of the top 10 unlimate dinner guest they would want to have over. So here is my list
1. Jesus- how could you not want to have dinner with your savior?
2 & 3 My grandparents because I miss the everyday and would love to spend one more dinner with them.
4. My Mom- I know that she would love to have dinner with her parents again.
5. Beth Moore- I just love her bible studies and she is so funny!
6. Tim Tebow- Since he is going to be my husband.
7. Nicholas Sparks- He is my favorite author and I would love for him to tell me about the other books he is working on.
8. Karen Kingsbury- Also another favorite authors of mine.
9. Mary Harriman Rumsey- The founder of the Junior League. I think it would be really great to talk with her about how she started the league and her thoughts on it now.
10. Vera Ellen- She is my all time favorite dancer in the classic movies. I would love for her to be both a dinner guest and maybe then she could dance a few dances for us!
Who would you inivite?

I'm Amazed ...

that I haven't blogged in so long and I still have followers! haha!
It's been pretty busy lately. I had my birthday last weekend school started up and we are waiting by the phone for my sister to call and tell us that she is in labor.
Like I mentioned I have my birthday last weekend over labor day. Sarah and I decided a little trip to Nashville would be the best way to celebrate. We wanted to take advantage of the last weekend of summer sun and went to Nashville Shores Saturday and spent the whole day playing in the wave pool and the lazy river. While we were in the wave pool we made a friend, his name was Logan. He looked to be the age of 8 but turns out he was 13. Logan swam over and asked if we ladies came here often, he is going to be trouble in a few years. After asking if we were in middle school or high school, what girls wouldn't love to hear that on her 26th birthday, he decided to hang out with us the rest of the day.
The girls and I have always joked that if we weren't married when we got older we would buy a big mansion together complete with a pool and a pool boy. Well after Logan insisted on carry our rafts and making sure we knew all the good secrets of the waterpark we might just give him the job in the future. haha!
That night we went to dinner at Wildhorse and then to the stage to enjoy some authentic country music. It began to mist a little rain as we left dinner. We made it about a block before the sky opened up and we were soaked! We did make some friends while hiding out in an atm location and waited it out.
We ended the trip with breakfast at Loveless Cafe on Sunday! It was a two hour wait but totally worth it. All in all a wonderful birthday weekend and a great start to what I have decided is going to be the best year!!
