Today is our 2nd wedding anniversary. 

It’s been a rough two years but I wouldn’t have wanted to do it with anyone else than Ashley.  He’s my best friend and although we’ve had our moments our love as seen us through the brighest and darkest days.

Two years ago today we made a promise to God, our family and friends that for better or worse we’d be in this.  We’ve had better and we’ve had worse. 

I never knew I could love the way I do until I met him.  He’s the most compassionate, caring, loving and funny person I’ve ever met.   He has this way of looking at me that still melts my heart every single time.

I still get butterflies when I hear his truck pull in the driveway.  I am blessed in more ways than I could ever describe on a blog. 

I know that this is just the beginning of our life together!  So here’s to us and many more years!

I love you with all my heart and soul – forever.

I’m Not Ready To Make Nice

Forgive, sounds good
Forget, I’m not sure I could
They say time heals everything
But I’m still waiting

I’m through with doubt
There’s nothing left for me to figure out
I’ve paid a price
And I’ll keep paying
I’m not ready to make nice
I’m not ready to back down
I’m still mad as hell and
I don’t have time to go round and round and round
It’s too late to make it right
I probably wouldn’t if I could
‘Cause I’m mad as hell
Can’t bring myself to do what it is you think I should

I know you said
Can’t you just get over it
It turned my whole world around
And I kind of like it

I made my bed and I sleep like a baby
With no regrets and I don’t mind sayin’

The Legal Defintion of Slander
January 25, 2008, 10:05 am
Filed under: CDH, Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia, Friends

slander n. oral defamation, in which someone tells one or more persons an untruth about another which untruth will harm the reputation of the person defamed. Slander is a civil wrong (tort) and can be the basis for a lawsuit. Damages (payoff for worth) for slander may be limited to actual (special) damages unless there is malicious intent, since such damages are usually difficult to specify and harder to prove. Some statements such as an untrue accusation of having committed a crime, having a loathsome disease, or being unable to perform one’s occupation are treated as slander per se since the harm and malice are obvious, and therefore usually result in general and even punitive damage recovery by the person harmed. Words spoken over the air on television or radio are treated as libel (written defamation) and not slander on the theory that broadcasting reaches a large audience as much if not more than printed publications.

 SLANDER, torts. The defaming a man in his reputation by speaking or writing words which affect his life, office, or trade, or which tend to his loss of preferment in marriage or service, or in his inheritance, or which occasion any other particular damage.

The reason for this post is truly absurd and based solely on the childish behavior of another person.  It was brought to my attention last night that several of us had been mentioned in a online time line and so as they say curiousty killed the cat and I went and looked.  Sure enough there is my name along with many of my friends. 

Let me just say this (because I know she and her cult) follow my blog almost daily; I have been to your website and will continue to go to your website as long as my name is printed for others to see.  You are full of lies and I think that has been proved time and time again (i.e. 501c3 status, court, being a godmother to someones child).  

When I first met you I truly felt sorry for you but now I realize that you have brought this all on yourself.  You are a professional liar and I am so saddened and sickened by your behavior.   You say you want all this stop and yet you continue to post things on your SUPPORT GROUP’S WEBSITE about people who you say are stalking and harassing you.  Let’s see do any of us post your lies, emails and dumb timelines for others to see?  The answer to that is NO!   It is a shame that you have invested so much of your time and energy into something that is so malicious and false.  I think it’s time you grow up and find a new hobby. 

The other organization you complain about has accomplished more in 6 months than you have in 7 years!  There’s a reason for that and you need to seriously sit down and reevaluate what you are doing with your time and life.   There are real people who need help and support NOT your 8 year old antics.   Quit dragging people into your lies and mess and dammit quit getting other people to fight your battles. 

I am really sick of your crap and I have sat back long enough and kept quiet long enough.  If you want a fight I’ll bring a war.  You and your uneducated lawyer won’t know what hit them if you keep messing with the wrong people.  And let me assure you that this is not a threat but rather a promise.  This is has gone long enough!  You have hurt and damaged people’s reputations, lives and children’s memories for too many years and we will put a stop to you.  The IRS will end your organization in due time. 

So until you take our names off your list we will continue to vist.  As they say in the south, “Put your big girl panties on and deal with it.” Get over it and grow up!  Take our names off and believe me we will all gladly never visit your elementary website again.   Until then we will do everything in our power to protect ourselves, our children and those parents who don’t have a voice yet.   We will not continue to sit back and allow you to lie about us. 

You should have learned a thing or two in court my dear but since you didn’t bring it on.

Family Circle Cup

Ashley purchased us tickets last night to attend this tennis event.  It is held annually in Charleston, SC and for the first time we are getting to go.  I am so excited as I am a huge tennis fan.  I used to play and if I could find a decent partner I would play again.   It will host many of the top ranked women’s tennis players.  Justine Henin, Venus and Serena Williams, Jelena Jankovic and Anna Chakvtadze. 

So we are going to this event on April 18-20.  He purchased us the Champions Package which means we  will get to see the quarterfinals, semi-finals and the finals.  We are both really excited because we love Charleston and tennis.   Charleston was the first place we visited after Parker passed away.   It is absolutely gorgeous and great shopping and food!

Anyway, I just thought I’d share. 

Still In Shock…..

So, tonight we are driving home from my sister’s house, which is an hour away from our home, and I am running my mouth (like I always do) to Ashley about who even remembers when I pick up my Blackberry to check my email.  Yeah I am sure that phone will be the death of me one day as I try to text and send emails while driving.  I am getting better about leaving it in my purse though while driving.  So back to my story.  I am checking my emails when I see one from my Aunt Charlyn.  The title Reba.  I am thinking hmmmm…..  We are going to see her on Saturday.  One of my great Christmas gifts from Ashley.  I LOVE Reba!  Well, my uncle Scott’s sister plays in her band and get this GOT US BACKSTAGE PASSES TO MEET REBA! Can you believe it?  I’m going to meet this woman!!!!


My two favorite women country singers since I was a small child have always been Reba and Barbara Mandrell.  No lie y’all they are on my IPOD.  Ashley always laughs at me when they come on.  So, I am going to meet Reba!  I am still in shock and feel like a kid on Christmas day.  What an honor to meet one of country’s legends. 

So, I am going to try and get some sleep!

Well, I hope that place is ready for me.  I am going to visit Lauren, Amanda, Aimee and Lauren!  (Shawn I wish you could come meet us too!)

Although Lauren Z. is the only one who knows I’m coming as of now.  I am going in April and cannot wait to see Z again and finally meet the other girls after almost two years of talking online to each other! 

And I get to meet Z’s hunky boyfriend and her family!  And I get to go see Avery!  Yippeeeeeeee!

I am really excited as I need this trip away and I’m going to miss Ashley and the girls like crazy but gosh we are going to have some fun!  Probably no drinking though because I hope to be pregnant by then. 

I am mainly going  because Z graduates on the 30th of April and I wanted to spend some time with her before she does.  I am so proud of her! 

I’m looking forward to my trip and getting together with some of my dearest friends!
