What I'm Lovin'

It's What I'm Lovin' Wednesday so let me share. The bad news is that Eli is sick again so he hasn't been able to go daycare. The good news I am lovin' all the help from our families this week. I'm Lovin' all this snow and the fun memories we're making this winter season. I'm Lovin' that today we are half way through the week. I'm Lovin' the lastest book I'm reading...I get way too involved! As always, I'm lovin' the gentlemen in my life. What are you loving'?


Disclaimer: I continue to embrace the chaos and admit that my next blogging topic did indeed happen nearly two weeks ago...oops! Back to the topic at hand. Ya'll know that we are a house divided! I'm a UK girl and Eric U of L freak. Ha! Anyway, we have a common ground when it comes to WKU. Sadly however, they pretty much stink...bad! So when we went to the game this last time it was more about fellowship than fanfare. Of course we so enjoyed one of our favorite families...the Adkins!! We had tons of fun posing for pictures, but Eli and I couldn't get it together enough to look at the camera at the same...ha! The girls Softball Team was there and sat next to Eli. One of them made the mistake of eating a sucker which Eli tried to swipe. Luckily Tina was prepared and had an extra one. Eli was delighted and enjoyed waving the towel and chowing down! I think Eli and Own enjoyed departing the game because outside was a ginormous basketball...every toddlers dream!!

Weekend Recap

We had a delightful weekend and got some much needed rest! My mom's birthday was this past Tuesday, so we went to Lexington to celebrate. We got there around 9:00 Friday night and were so exhausted we went straight to bed. Eli had a fabulous night and my mom got up with him on Saturday morning, so we were able to sleep in. Me, my sister and my cousin Sarah took my mom out to Rafferty's for lunch while my dad, my brother and Eric set up for her surprise party! My mom is so funny. As we are walking in the house she says, "I have to pee so bad." She all but runs to the bathroom and doesn't even notice the house full of guests waiting to surprise her...ha! After the party we ate chili and just was delightful!! Eric and I slept in again on Sunday and after lunch we did some sledding. It was a delightful weekend and a wonderful way to celebrate my mom's birthday!!

Hi My Name Is Morgan

Hi Ya'll....My name is Morgan and I am a recovering perfectionist! Ha! Ok, I have to admit that I love blogging, but I have fallen into this trap of wanting what ya'll have...the seemingly perfect life. I read about your families, your dinners, your weekends and I catch myself wanting them. Sad day! Ya'll are wonderful and have amazing lives but trying to be just like you isn't healthy. I sent this to a friend this morning and wanted to share it you: On that note I have done some praying and thinking this weekend and have come to some interesting conclusions. I think I am a recovering perfectionist. You see, I have been trying so hard to have the perfect life, the perfect house, the perfect marriage, the perfect kids...ha! Why is this? I have never been that way. I've always been an unorganized, talkative girly girl! When I became a parent why did I expect to suddenly become Holly Homemaker?! I'd rather be at the gym than in the kitchen. I would ra

What I'm Lovin' Wednesday

Ya'll, it's What I'm Lovin' Wednesday and I to be honest.. it's not much. This has been a bad week, but instead of having a pity party, I have going to be positive and look and a few of my many blessings!! I'm lovin' that twice today I have come across this verse: Philippians 2:3-4 "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others."( NIV) (do you think the Lord is teaching me a lesson) I'm Lovin' that yesterday was my mom's birthday and that we get to go Lexington to celebrate this weekend. I'm Lovin' that my father-in-law is here helping with Eli until we can get him healthy and make other childcare arrangements. As always, I'm lovin' the two gentlemen in my life. What are you lovin?

Happy Birthday

We would like to wish a very Happy Birthday to my momma and Eli's one and only Gigi! ! We love you!!

Can I Be Honest?

Can I be honest with you? Right now in this moment I am so weary, so exhausted, so worn down by life. I just need rest. I need a place to cast my cares, a place to lay my head. I need shelter from the storms raging all around me. I need someone to say, "Peace, be still." I have do have that place, at the foot of the cross. A place where my soul can find rest and my heart restoration. And so I cling to that today. I cling to the promise that tomorrow will be better than today, that sunshine follows the rain, and that joy comes in the morning. I Am oh weary, tired and worn, let out your sighs and drop that heavy load you hold 'cause Mine is light I know you through and through; there's no need to hide I want to show you love that is deep and high and wide 'cause I am constant; I am near I am peace that shatters all your secret fears I am holy; I am wise I'm the only one who knows your heart's desires your heart's desires I am constant; I am near

Better Late Than Never

I would like to report that in the last two weeks Eli has been seen by the doctor twice, has been on four medications, has cut a tooth, and has missed more days of daycare than he's been. So, you'll excuse my blogging absence once again. Now that I have returned, I would like to share with you some pictures from our Christmas with my family....Told you it was late! Eric was sick with a terrible sinus infection that he got from me and I got from Eli...all from!! Anyway, Eli and I ventured to Lexington alone for New Year's and a belated Christmas celebration. As you can see from the above picture, Eli had quite the Christmas. In fact, it was so big that we turned out guest room into a playroom. Oh the sacrifices of parenthood. One Eli's favorites was the wagon filled with blocks from his cousin Wyatt. Now, he did love building towers, but found riding in it a bit more fun. Ha! I keep going in his playroom to find him loaded up in that little wagon.

What I'm Lovin'

It's What I'm Lovin Wednesday and I'm playing along today... I'm lovin that my house is FINALLY put back together, and that I'm in a new blogging groove. I'm lovin that downtown Bowling Green is snow covered. I'm loving the two gentlemen in my life.

Let It All Begin

With the new year comes a new beginning, and I can't wait to de-clutter my house and make way for 2011. You see, I am a neat freak. My house in quite clean. In fact I clean the bathrooms weekly from top to bottom and wipe them down daily. I vacuum twice a week and polish all of my furniture every Monday. However, I am not organized! And as clean as I may be, my closets look like a tornado ripped through, I have a half dozen frames without pictures in them, and various other projects that are not complete. So, if I am MIA this week, it's because I am busy cleaning and organizing my house. Here are a few things on my list: 1. Blog about New Year's Weekend 2. Complete My Cleaning Schedule 3. Put Away Christmas Decorations 4. Organize House Here's a List Of Our Room By Room Projects 1. My Closet- out with the old//in with the new (new shelving as well. 2. Bedroom-organize dresser 3.
