Show Us Your Life: Proposal Story

Over on Kelly's Korner, we are talking about our proposal story. Being a hopeless romantic, I thought I would join in. In February of 2008 I was beyond ready for Eric to propose to me. We already had a date set, but we were waiting on a ring. I would ask him every single day when he was going to "pop the question." The week of Valentine's Day he told me that it would not be on February 14, and he was right! We did enjoy a very romantic night nonetheless. On Friday, February 15th 2008 I went to work as normal. I was at a different television network at the time and went about my usual duties of reporting. Upon returning to the station I was preparing my story for the 5:00 newscast when the photographer started setting up his camera. This is nothing unusual in a newsroom, so I kept working on my story. A few minutes later I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and there stood Eric. He was wearing a black suit and carrying the most beautiful roses. I knew immediately what we was going to do, but for some reason I gave him an awkward hug. I think I was blown away that it was actually happening, or maybe I was self conscious of the cameras. I don't really know... But as soon as he hit his knee, the world faded and it was just me an him. I was living the moment I had dreamed about. Oh, and it made the 10:00 News!!

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
