Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

{much needed quality time}

My husband and I live about 20 minutes away from an amusement park Carowinds. Since we live so close, we got season passes so we could enjoy going this summer while I'm out of school. The neatest part about Carowinds is that it sits right on the border between South Carolina and North Carolina. I remember as a kid thinking it was so neat to hop back and forth between the two states and wave to my parents on the other side of the border. The park has a two track roller coaster called Thunder Road that divides the border and has a South Carolina train and a North Carolina train. There's a lot more than that, but I always thought it was cool. My husband and I went yesterday and had such a good time! We definitely needed some time together to just have fun. I'm excited because the water park inside Carowinds will open up for the first time of the season Memorial Day weekend, and we are planning to go! There's supposed to be fireworks :)

Thunder Road

This was my husband and I last year when I came for a visit before we got married. He was on the SC side and I was on the NC side.

Here are some pictures I took yesterday.

{me time}

I have finally had the time to sit down and read some books that I had really wanted to read but didn't have time to because of school. Thanks to everyone who gave me book suggestions! I hope I have enough time to make it through my summer reading list!

{royal wedding southern style}

I am beyond excited that on Saturday my favorite country singer Miranda Lambert tied the know with Blake Shelton! I'm going to need pictures of the wedding posted pronto! I hear she wore her mom's wedding dress :)

{operation skinny minny}

I am happy to report that operation skinny minny has been a huge success so far! Thank you Weight Watchers! This is the first time that I have able to stay committed to a diet, and it's nice to see the results! I have two weeks until I have to wear a bathing suit for Memorial Day weekend....hopefully I can drop four more pounds by then :)

Well...that was random :)

I hope everyone has a marvelous Monday!


  1. Oh I love amusement parks! :) I'm a sucker for them, just like a little kid. I love Miranda and Blake! :) Happy Monday!

  2. Omigosh, were you taking pictures while on the rollercoaster? I think I hyperventalated just a lil' bit thinking of that.. I'm so scared of coasters/heights.. agh!! Glad you had fun though..My husband would give his right arm if I would be more adventurous and ride coasters with him. Yay for success on WW!! My Step Mom is on it and loving it as well! good luck!!

  3. That park sounds awesome! I'm hoping my husband and I make it to Hershey Park or something this summer for some water rides and such. Yay for results! WTG!

  4. wow that looks like quite the place, and the roller

  5. Great pictures from very very high up! My stomach fell just looking at them ;)

    Congratulations on Weight Watchers! You're doing so well, and that's great!

  6. I love Carowinds, too! I loved being in a different state from my parents as a child and thought that was so neat!

    Congrats on Weight Watchers. My dieting and weight loss ambitions have been unsuccessful thus far! :(
