Long time no type...ha! My heart did a little happy dance when I hit "new post." I took a little blogging hiatus to deal with some issue of depression I was having, but the Lord has relieved me of that burden and I can't help but be giddy with this new found peace...PRAISE HIM.

Otherwise, we have been hanging out at home playing ball with Eli, swimming, and visiting family. I'm in high "Dave Ramsey" gear, which I'm sure you will hear (read) more about during the next few months. Oh, and I'm on a semi-health kick. Other than that sleep is okay and everything else is same ole/ same ole!

Our summer started off with a bang...literally! My dad was electrocuted and fell out of a tree. I think he broke virtually every bone in his body..ha! No really, it was bad but could have been much worse. I'll share more on that later, but until then we are praising God for protecting my dad!

You can expect lots of posts from me this month because we have a lot of exciting things going on here are some of the things I am looking forward to this month.

On a final and completely random note, I want a blog make-over. The design I have is lovely (thank you hubby) but it reminds me of the difficult season I just came through. I want to put it all behind me, and I want something bright and upbeat to symbolize the joy in my heart!!

Ok, more to come on my dad and Memorial day weekend. Until then, here is me and my boy!

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
