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

I'd rather be at the gym than in the kitchen. I
would rather be chasing Eli than cleaning the
bathroom. I would rather be trying on clothes than
washing them!! So why on earth did I expect to
suddenly like domestic chores...CRAZY!!

I know there is a time and place for everything and that domestic
duties are part of my new responsibility. However, I
cannot lose myself in them. God made me unique with
special talents, interest and skills. Trying to be
something I'm not (no matter how good the intentions)
is not healthy. It has caused me much pain, much
exhaustion and instead of making my home a happy
place, it has become a clean, functional, nightmare.

Ya'll the truth we go:

1. I am Exhausted 99% Of The Time.
2. My Child Doesn't Always Sleep Through The Night (but we are improving)
3. I Hate Cooking...And I'm Terrible At It
4. I'm A Moody Person And Sometimes Rude To Eric
5. I Don't Go To The Gym Regularly Thanks To Other Duties
6. I'm Good With Money But Forget To Pay Bills On Time
7. I Love Eli More Than Life But Find Parenting EXTREMELY Stressful
8. I Never, Ever Iron Our Clothes And Could Go Weeks Without Doing Laundry
9. I Hate Clutter So I just Throw Things Away By The Masses
10. I Love A Clean House But It Rarely Stays That Way...I Have A Husband and Child


So, if you live a crazy life of sleepless nights, one dish dinners, marital mishaps, late bills, dirty laundry and general disorganization...well this is the blog for you.

Hi My Name is Morgan...welcome to the chaos!!


  1. Amen sister! When I first got married I think I was living on newlywed adrenaline bc our house was always spotless and I cooked every night.... ha! then reality set in and we just had to figure out what works for us. winter is the worst time for me- i just dont function well in cold! so my house is messier, i cook some but not all the time, and justin has to actually help out. but you know what? we have never been happier- dirty house and all!

    and i am so feeling you on the bills! why cant all of them just automatically come out of my checking account??!! ugh!

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
