Our Week (a few weeks ago)

I wrote this post about three weeks ago, but never posted it. Anyway better late than never...

Ya'll, I have been a TERRIBLE blogger this past week or so! We have been so, so busy. Actually, social is probably a better word, but whatever! Normally, I would try to post a little each day, but since that isn't going to happen, here is an overview...of last week:

Monday: I ran with Sarah! It is so nice having a friend with a common goal and a sweet little boy too! She's a little (and my little I mean A LOT) ahead of me, but it's fun. Anyway, after running I picked up Eli and we just hung out at home.

Tuesday: I ran at the gym, got my hair cut, and went to the grocery after work. We had the Lindsey Family over for dinner, and so enjoyed Emma Kate, Macy and Abbie Drew! Poor little Eli cried when those darlings left!

Wednesday: I met Sarah at the gym again and then we went to see Sabrina, Justin and sweet baby Griffin. Please keep them in your prayers as Griffin continues to heal in the NICU. Eric picked up a pizza on his way home and then Nan and Grandad came over!

Thursday: I skipped the gym and came home to hang out with Eric's parents. Ronnie had worked on our building all day. So while he and Eric finished up, Dixie and I took Eli shopping. Shout out to Susan for introducing me to my new favorite store...Burke's Outlet!! Anyway, we pretty much relaxed the rest of the night.

Friday: Yesterday I ran with Sarah and came home. Later we got together with some friends we haven't seen in a while. We ate at Smokey Bones and then got ice cream...with four kids in tow!!

Saturday: Eli and I went to town to shop with Owen and Tina and even ate at Chick-fil-A. Some crazy lady with a five year-old said she saw Eli and Owen pushing her son. HELLO!! She wasn't even in the playplace and we were...PLUS our kids are one year olds...GET OVER IT!!! Afterwards we came home to rest before heading back the Adkins' house for fun!

Sunday: Eric and I kept the nursery at church before heading to Glasgow for lunch at Tumbleweed and my third trip of the week to Burke's Outlet!! We came home and did some relaxing and odd jobs for the rest of the day!

Ok, so there is the recap! I'm hoping to get a lot of blogging done today and tomorrow because I still want to show you what we've done this week and our front porch makeover. Plus, I never posted about Thunderfest or our backyard camping trip...all of which happened this month. Then there is a trip to Lexington this weekend, Owen's birthday party, a baby shower, a community appearance at work and birthday ideas for Eli!!

I'm exhausted just thinking about it! I promise to post lots, but until then...I'm living life not just writing about it!!

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
