Day Dreaming

On this dreary Thursday morning I'm sitting here daydreaming of traveling this beautiful globe. I love to travel and so does Eric. Our Bucket List(s) both include visiting all 50 States, and while I have full confidence that this will happen, there are some specific trips I have in mind.

1. Washington D.C. - I have been twice before and I LOVE it. I love the energy, the charm, the history, the dining....all of it!! Problem is, Eric has never been. Can you guess where we are going on our anniversary trip this year?
2. Baseball Tour - whenever we travel, we always hit up Major League fields. It's something my boys enjoy, so I'm always happy to tag along. What better way to see the Northeast than take a train to see teams like The Nationals, The Oriels, The Pirates, The Phillies, The Mets, The Yankees, and The Red Sox?
3. New York City At Christmas Time: I don't want to just go to the Big Apple any ole' time. I want to go during Christmas. I want to stay in the Plaza, walk Central Park, see the Statue of Liberty, watch The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, and ice skate at Rockefeller Center. Oh yeah, and catch a few shows!
4. Camp In The Southwest - We love to camp which is nice on the pocketbook. We'd like to take the kids to the Grand Canyon one day stopping at cheesy roadside attractions along the way!!

5. Camp In The Northwest: We want to enjoy more memories while exploring Yosemite National Park, seeing the Sequoia Trees, and roaming the wide open spaces of the North East.
6. Alaskan Cruise: So far everything we've talked about has been family friendly, but it's important to take time for romantic get-a-ways too. Every five years we plan on doing something BIG for just the two of us. One of those adventures will hopefully be an Alaskan Cruise!!
7. Hawaii: Needless to say, the Hawaiian Islands are also on our "No Kids Trip" list!
8. Europe: Finally, we'd like to take time during our retirement to see Europe and all it's glory!!

Maybe one day I'll post my traveling wish list in it's entirety. For now, I'll keep dreaming about being a jet setter, saving money for our travels, and making precious memories with my boys!!


  1. I love your travel list. All of those are on my list as well, with only one addition. Australia.

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
