Food For Thought

Hey All!! I have a million things swirling around in my head this morning and I wanted to document them let's get started!

Our anniversary is coming up in October, so we are planning our annual get-a-way. I'm sort of torn between a fun city destination and a mountain retreat. We've thrown around the idea of St. Louis, Louisville, Chattanooga, Cincinnati, Gatlinburg or Chicago. Any suggestions would be helpful...thanks!!

I am on organizing kick this week! I want my house revamped, PRONTO!! So, I have a plan to focus on one room/closet a week. Things could get hairy, but if you like dumpster diving head my way.

Speaking of revamping, we are starting the slow process of turning Eli's nursery into a big boy room when we pick up his dresser this weekend. No milestone has been so hard to swallow, I am super sad about it. Expect a sappy nursery post soon...

Oh, on that too I am looking for Master Bedroom decorating ideas because I am so ready for a make-over.

I'm also making over my body..sorta! I went back to the gym yesterday for the first time since my surgery. My abs have ever since!

I have been stuck in the studio for the past few weeks planning things for the rest of the year, and getting ready for my photographer's maternity leave. My head is about to explode with dates and facts and all that stuff!

It's ok though because next week we get to have a shower to welcome Charlie!!

While we're talking about babies, a few more weeks until NBC's "Up All Night" premiers...cannot wait!

Ok, just looked at the clock...gotta go meet my hubby for a lunch date, and since I'm now thinking of food, that will be my title for this post.

Happy Thursday!


  1. I would say Chicago or st Louis.

    Now that I am spending so much time in my house, I have a strong desire to organize! But no time of course! Ha!

    What is "Up All Night"?

  2. We love Cincinatti and Gatlinburg is always fun too! Can you believe all that's gone on in your lives in just three years?

  3. Sabrina,"Up All Night" is a show that will be premiering on NBC with Christina Applegate and Will Arnett. It's about a young couple who never sleep thanks to their baby...I can so relate!

    Sarah, we were just talking about everything we have been through that past three years. It feels more like a decade...ha!

    Thanks for the destination suggestions...I'll keep you posted. LITERALLY!!

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
