Hats Off To Eli

As any mommy will tell you, it becomes difficult to stay fashionable after having a baby. First you have to throw out everything you owned pre-baby. Then you brave buying new and larger clothes only to sport them with large milk spots on the boobs or spit-up stains else where. Finally you decide that you are ready to spruce things up with some accessories only you have no idea what's in style. Now, I may not get out much, but I have noticed a trend in hats this fall. I'd like to show you a few examples of how they can be worn.
This is the "Slacking On The Job" hat. It can be worn with any required uniform (with or without a shirt.) And is often times used by employees to protest a change in company policy.
This is "What's In That Cup" Hat It is popular among college age students and is often a tell, tell sign of too much fun. When in doubt, look for dilated pupils or slurred speech (assuming your subject in question can actually speak.)

This is the "Good Ol' Boy" Hat. It is usually sported in rural areas and is often worn by NASCAR fans. Please notice example above.

Here we have the ."Thug Baby Hat" It is worn backwards as a form of self expression. Those choosing to sport this particular fashion often sport baggy jeans and oversized shirts.

This is the "I Was Out Late Last Night And Can't Find My Pants" Hat. A fashion we hope not to see in our home in the years to come.

Hats Off You You !!

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
