Fall Bucket List and An Announcement

Before everyone starts to scroll down to the end of this post for the announcement I want to get it out in the open that I am NOT pregnancy...sorry! But read on anyway, it's still exciting!

This past summer there were so many things I wanted to do with Eli because he was just at such a fun age. Well, we got them all checked off but one, and we improvised a little it counts. I thought it would be fun to make a little list of things I would like to do this fall. We'll see what gets checked off...

1. Go Tailing at WKU

2. Go To Orchard

3. Anniversary Get-a-Way

4. Walk To End Alzheimer's

5. Hike

6. Pumpkin Carving Party

7. Home Coming Parade

8. Trick -or-Treat

9. Monster Mash @ Corvette Museum

10. Sit Around Fire Pit with Hubby

11. Make Apple Cider

In my book, Fall starts on Memorial Day and runs until Thanksgiving. I realize that this is not a scientific definition , but it works for the girl who once told her husband that winter starts when it gets really cold outside. Haha! (in my defense he didn't ask me the date which I knew as December 20 or 21) Anyway, you get the point.

Now for my BIG ANNOUNCEMENT (reason you're even still reading) and final bucket list goal....I joined Weight Watchers!! My first goal is to lose 9lbs which I would like to do by Thanksgiving!

I went for my first consultation yesterday and it was appalling!! I meet with my group and weigh-in for the first official time on Wednesday at noon! I'll do a weekly update and tell you why I went this route after the meeting. Until then, say a little prayer for success.

Oh, have a good weekend too!!

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
