What I'm Lovin

I know it's Thursday, but I just couldn't miss out on What I'm Lovin' this week because my heart is bursting JOY!!

I was in the hospital last night with a ruptured ovarian cyst which is old hat after ten years of this mess. Although I'm not lovin' the spell I had, I'm lovin' that the doctors gave me shot for the pain that DID NOT leave me loopy. I'm also lovin' that my sweet husband took such great care of me, cooked dinner, cleaned much of the house and bathed Eli.

I'm lovin' that we've stuck with our budget this month...GO US!!

Speaking of budgets, I'm loving the Wonder File. Have you seen this? My parents got it for me for Christmas and it keeps bill paying so simple and organized!

I'm lovin' that my baby boy has turned into the best, most wonderful sleeper in the world!! Not only does he sleep through the night, he sleeps like a log!! It is nothing short of a miracle.

I'm lovin' that through the year of sleepless and depression that followed the Lord revealed himself to me in a new light. I fully intend to elaborate tomorrow, so come back!

I'm lovin' that we are now dog owners...welcome to the family Loui!

I'm lovin' that my family got to visit for Easter.

And as always, I'm lovin' my sweet boys!

What are you LOVIN?

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
