I'm Behind

Are ya'll ready for another blah, blah, blah post about how much I miss blogging.  The truth is, I'm behind...A LOT!!  You're going to hear all about it, but it's hang on!

1. Work has been insanely stressful for the past to the point I want to cry.  That's saying a lot considering I love my job.  I still do.  It's just that there have been several changes and added responsibilities.  It's all started to add up...and fast!  I just need to get a better grip on things, find my new stride, and roll with the punches.

2. I haven't been to the gym in two weeks...haven't had the time.  Between work and this little thing called Motherhood, I've had other priorities.  Sadly, this has resulted in a 20 lb weight gain...oops!

3.  Did I mention that I'm stressed out?

4. It's been too hot to play outside which means that we haven't been swimming much as of late.  I hate that. I love swimming, and I love a good tan!

5. Eli has started stuttering which is driving me bonkers!  They tell me that it has nothing to do with speech.  It's actually a developmental thing where kids are trying to use more vocabulary, but their mouths can't keep up with their brains, so they stutter. WEIRD.  Once I realize what he's trying to say, I repeat it back to him and make him say it without stuttering.  Sounds harsh, but he has to learn to slow down/

6. Speaking of Eli, he is basically sleeping through the night and has been for about a month.  Can I get a Hallelujah?!!

7.  Oh yeah, I'm really stressed!

8.  That's why this weekend can't get here soon enough.  Eric and I are off work on Friday and will enjoy some much needed alone time until Sunday.  There will QUIET dinners out, lots of sleeping in, golf for him, and a spa day more me...score!!

9.  Who knows, with all the down time I may get caught up on blogging.  If that happens, here is the list of topics sitting on my desk that you will soon read all about.

1. Thuderfest
2. Out Rip To Nan's
3. Contentment v. Complacency
4. Family Fun Night
5. Wet & Wild
6. Cardinal Caravan
7. Our Garden  

I'm plum giddy just thinking about getting caught up.  Until then...enjoy your Wednesday.  I sure will because only one day stands between me and the weekend...WHOO HOO!!!!


  1. You will get caught up very soon :) No worries! Mommy hood conquers all - especially the blog life a lot of times!

    Also, I really enjoyed your article in the BG parent magazine. I loved it! I was giddy when I first opened and saw your sweet family!

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
