Blast From The Past

Ya'll have probably already noticed this, but I love to take pictures. I'm really not good at it, but I love capturing the memories of my life.

Unfortunately, my Momma doesn't share the same sentiments. In fact, we have a family joke that you have to be dead before my parents will put your picture out. It's true. Our house was filled with photos of great grandparents, uncles aunts and other dead family members. Actually, there was one family picture with all of us in it, but it was one of those "Old Time" photos you get at cheesy tourist attractions. I guess since it looked old, they bent the rule.

Luckily, there are a few family albums with pictures that were taken on disposable cameras. I'm not even lying when I say that we would buy the Wal-Mart two pack (that's like 54 pictures) and it would last at least six months and sometimes a year. Can you please answer why my parents thought disposable cameras were an acceptable form of photography to begin with?

Anyway, I don't have a scanner to upload those high quality family photos. So, I have to rely on old pictures that cousins and friends post on our behalf. Here are a few I randomly came across this week.

This was taken at my sister's send off party for Miss Teen America. If memory serves me correctly that was 2006. That was pretty much the only time in my life that I shared clothes with my sister....hate her skinny butt!

This was taken only one year later at my brother's Senior Night. I'd like to report that Lexington Christian Academy did in fact make it to the state finals that year!!
This last picture was taken when I was three and my sister one. Pretty sure Mom was pregnant again. I think we rocked the sailor theme...haha!

I am so blessed to call my siblings "friends." I'm even more blessed that my hair finally grew out over my ears.

Happy Saturday!!


  1. LOL to the last sentence! I miss you and can't wait to see you in a few weeks!

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
