Our Weekend

So, I've been a terrible blogger as of late! BOO!! I have been so busy living life, that I haven't documented it too well. I didn't take pictures this weekend, but I would like to recap for my sake.

Friday night we were EXHAUSTED, so we grilled steak and played with Eli. That's pretty much it. We watched "101 Ways To Leave a Game Show" and fell asleep.

Saturday morning I got up with Eli and let Eric sleep. We watched cartoons, played ball, and generally lounged around. I'm a TERRIBLE cook, but I tried my hand at iced-coffee. It was surprisingly good and we've had it every night since.

Anyway, I used my birthday money for a "Front Porch Make-Over" which I will show you later this week. Eric spent his day painting the wicker chairs. Kudos to him because it was insanely hot!

Saturday night we went to our church softball game. Funny story for those of you who know me. We were short women, and in coed sports that is apparently bad! So, I was asked to play catcher. It was the tournament game, and I had only played once early in the season, so I was nervous and terrible! Ha! I did make it on base once...thank you very much!! Anyway, Miss Kentucky was Saturday, so I was glued to my phone for results while in the dugout. Typical HBBQ (Has Been Beauty Queen) more interested in a pageant 200 miles away than the ball game at hand!

By the way, Congrats to all the winners!!

Moving on. Sunday we went to church, ate lunch and did pretty much nothing with the exception of my WONDERFUL husband who finished my "Front Porch Make-Over." I'll show you the end result later this week. Until then, have a good one!!


  1. Thanks for your sweet post on my site. Your blog is great, and your lil one is sooo precious. Have a great rest of the week.

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
