Sweet Saturday

This past weekend was one of the most delightful breaks I've had in quite sometime. Friday night we had to run to the pharmacy for more medicine. We came home, fed Eli, put him to bed and had some alone worries..this is PG!

Actually we had steak, baked potato, salad and dessert by candlelight. It was so nice to sit and talk without having our conversation interrupted every three minutes! Anyway, we were so tired we fell asleep on the couch. HOT, Huh? (Told you it was PG)

Saturday morning Eli and I woke up and spent some special time playing before Eric got up and fixed us a big country breakfast...a Saturday favorite!!

The three of us went to town to run some errands. We were actually supposed to eat out for lunch, but Eli dozed off. So instead, we came home to enjoy the nice day.

While Eric worked on cleaning the car, Eli and I played basketball, took a walk and ran around the yard. Afterwards we headed back to town to eat dinner with the Adkins and have some delightful dessert!

We came home, put Eli to bed, and crashed again!


  1. Alone time with great conversation is the best! I absolutely love that time that I get to share with my guy!

    Eli is such precious! I love the pictures of him walking!

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
