Weekend Recap

We had a great weekend visiting my family in Lexington. Of course we left on Friday night and ate Subway in the van. Eric ended up in the back seat, so that our ginormous dog could sit in the front. Ha! Don't ya'll know we were a sight for sore eyes?!

Saturday morning Eric and I went for a run before heading to lunch with my dad's side of the family. Here we are all the grandchildren minus my sister.
It was so sad because my Papaw had no idea who anyone was. Alzheimer's is so cruel! The blessing in all of this is that my family knows laughter can cure any circumstance of it's pain. So that is how we survive.
After spending the afternoon with my grandparents and doing a little Goodwill shopping, my mom and I spruced up for "A Night With Leigh Anne." Leigh Anne Touhey (real-life mom from The Blind Side) spoke in Lexington.

If you ever have the chance to go hear! It was beyond incredible. She is such a little spitfire and so spunky. A true Southern Belle...I loved it!!

Afterwards we ate dinner and just enjoyed some overdue girl time.

We slept in on Sunday and ate a big lunch with my family before heading back to our Super Bowl Party. The departure wasn't too bad because Eli was ready to see Owen.

It was a LONG ride back to southern Kentucky thanks to our co-pilot, Louie The Great White Pyrenees. Haha!
We unloaded Louie and went straight to the Adkins' house for the Big Game. They had the best food, and I ate until I was sick.
Luckily Eli and Owen played equally as much, so it was a pretty peaceful bedtime.

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
