Weekend Recap

I don't know about ya'll, but we sure had a great weekend.  Friday after my workout, I went to pick Eli up from daycare, and we made a trip to Wendy's for sweet tea.  I know, most kids want ice cream or a frosty, but what can I say-I'm raising a true southern gentleman.  Seriously, it's what he wanted.  

Anyway, after tea we went to the park to meet Eli's girlfriend, Macy.  I actually didn't get any pictures because Ashley and I talked about the entire time.  We went straight from the park to pick up Daddy, then it was dinner at Double Dogs with Uncle Clay  who was passing through town.  We ended our night with a double header softball game, so we didn't make it home until almost mid-night. Again, no pictures. 

After such a late night we all slept pretty late on Saturday before Daddy cooked up a pancake breakfast.  Then Eli and I went to run some errands while he worked on the garden.  First we had a yummy lunch at Chick-fil-A, then we hit up the mall because Old Navy had $8 dresses...I got a pink one.  Anyway, while we were there we did a little Mother's Day shopping for Gigi since we get to see her this weekend.

It was cute because I told Eli we were looking for "something extra special."  The whole time we were shopping he kept repeating, "Gigi extra special.  Gigi extra special."  Love his heart!  He also picked her out an umbrella in every single store.  I kid you not!

After the mall we headed  to the grocery store before coming home for Eli to nap and Mommy to work around the house.  Of course Eric ended up needing to run back to Wal Mart for a few things.  It was so late by that time that we ate a nice pizza dinner. Ha!

Of course Sunday was church.  Afterwards I made a big country lunch, then it was an afternoon of playing in the backyard.  We swam in the kiddie pool, played with Louie, and ate lots of Popsicles.

All the while Daddy was busy working on the garden.  I can not even tell you how excited I have to have fresh vegetables this year.  There is nothing like a tomato off the vine!

We wrapped up our super awesome weekend with a walk down the road and by grilling out some chicken.  Yum!

Now it's back to the weekly grind.  Hope you had a great 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
