Thrifty Thursday

I love Christmas so much, and living in Bowling Green is amazing because there are so many fun, family things to do that are...FREE!! Here are our thrifty weekend plans:

Thursday: Every Thursday I try to do something fun with Eli. More than likely, we'll be going to Chick-fil-A this afternoon for Ice Cream and playtime! As for dinner, I made BBQ last night for friends, but the meat wasn't perfectly tender. We improvised with chicken, so we'll be having BBQ tonight. After Eli goes to sleep, we'll be watching The Office: Holiday Special! Total Cost...$3

Friday: One of the things I look most forward to one the weekends is a quiet night at home on Friday. I plan to make Chicken Fajitas and watch Home Alone with my Mr. Perfect! Total Cost...$0

Saturday: We'll be getting up nice and early to eat Breakfast With Santa at Chaney's Dairy Barn. After a delicious meal, we'll be heading out to finish (that's right...FINSH) our Christmas shopping. We also have to buy our Christmas PJs and get our "official" portrait with Santa before heading home. We'll likely eat out for lunch, but dinner will be Vegetable Beef Soup at home since it will be snowing here. Yay! Also, Eric and I will we be watching Home Alone 2: Lost In New York! Total Cost...$50 (plus gifts)

Sunday: As always, we'll head to church and spend the afternoon resting. Although, you'll likely find me on shutterfly finishing up my Christmas Cards and a few holiday projects. Oh, lunch will be Pot Roast and we'll be hanging out with the Adkins for dinner....

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
