Weekend Recap

We spent a quiet weekend here in Bowling Green for the first time in a long time. After Eli fell asleep Friday night, Eric and I watched the movie Bridesmaids and snacked on some popcorn. Saturday morning my sweet hubby let me sleep in while he took baby was Heavenly!

He also surprised me with breakfast and changed the oil in my van while I caught up on laundry. That afternoon I went to Elizabethtown to see my "sister" Shonelle who was in town for her wedding reception.

Shonelle and I met when we competed in Miss Richmond Area together. She became the winner and I was the teen queen. She was a wonderful mentor and incredible friend. I cherish those memories we made! Anyway, as you can see she was a beautiful bride!!

I had to leave the reception a little early to get back home to my boys who were waiting for Nan & Grandad to arrive. When I made it back to town, we ate dinner at Olive Garden and hung out at the hotel. Then Eli, Eric and I fell asleep on the air mattress watching Gnomeo and Juliet.

Of course we went to church on Sunday before meeting Eric's mom and dad at the mall. Eli thought he was big stuff sitting at the table and eating a hamburger! Santa was already out and although Eli wasn't dressed for pictures, we decided to let him talk with Jolly Ole Saint Nick to break the ice. He wouldn't set in Santa's lap, but he didn't freak out either...I'd call that a success.

While shopping Eli scored a baseball from Grandad, a bouncy ball from Nan, and a Muno toy from Daddy. He's not spoiled or anything! Haha!

He fell asleep on the way home, but when he woke up we let him put up the Christmas tree in his room which is a BIG deal considering I DO NOT decorate before Thanksgiving. Oh well, anything to see that boy smile!

One more thing I want to remember about the weekend: Just after Eric and I went to bed we heard a very loud and unusual noise, almost like someone was trying to get in the house. However, non of the security lights were on and the alarm never sounded.

Thinking perhaps something had fallen, Eric went through the house checking each room, all the closets, and even the attic. Upon discovering nothing out of the ordinary he returned to bed.

Well, this morning as I was getting my Diet Coke out of the refrigerator I discovered the culprit...a soda can had exploded all over the place...ha! Glad to know it wasn't an intruder!

Hope your weekend was equally was fun!

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
