Vacation Day One

As per usual our original plans did not work out. We were going to wake up at seven so Eric could mow the yard before we left for vacation, but a 30% rain chance turned into 100% chance..ha! So, we loaded the car and headed out!

I would like to pause right here to thank my in-laws who volunteered to drive 2hours in the middle of the week to mow our yard. We thank you and so do the neighbors. Ok, moving on!

Eli was an angel, really! We made it to Dalton where we ate Chick-fil-A in the car, and then it was off the the Atlanta Braves game to stretch a bit.

When we got to our seats Eli was in awe. It marked his third major league game, but the first he remembers. While we were sitting there I heard the ladies behind us laughing. Call it maternal instinct, but I knew it was Eli. So, I turned around to find that he had nabbed some cookies from their bag..Oh my! I tried to explain that it isn't polite to steal, but a sever thunderstorm popped up and drenched us.

The game was delayed two hours so we took a few fun pictures before leaving the stadium.

One of our vacation rules is that we DO NOT eat at chains, except for Chick-fil-A because they are clean, predictable, and entertaining for Eli. Anyway, staying true to our rule we stopped at the cutest Philly Cheese Steak stand. I'm sure my meal ad a gazillion calories, but it was well worth it!

With our bellies full we loaded up the van and headed for Valdosta where we stayed the night. More to come on day two later....

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
