It's A Southern Thing

Ya'll know I love me some football, which means I am pumped for this weekend to get here.  Not only does all the college action start, the big Govenor's Bowl with Louisville v. Kentucky is this weekend too.

I'm not too positive that it's going to turn out in my favor.  Actually, I'm think the whole UK season is looking a little grim. Oh well, love them anyway.  Come to think of it, I love the SEC in general...minus LSU...I don't like LSU.

So, even though I am a huge, HUGE Wildcat fan I probably won't be going to any games this season.  I will on the other hand be watching the WKU  Toppers in action.  

That scares me a little because I just don't have anything to wear.

If you're from the South you'll know exactly what I'm talking about.  Dressing up for the game is just as important as winning it!  I used to have tons of red and black dresses to wear, but my new mom body has me stuck in a rut this season.  Since I'm in the market for a new dress or two, here's what I'm looking at...

This is fairly long, so it would be modest which is really important to me.  Plus, it's loose so it would be forgiving for my muffin top. HA!  Also, it's long sleeve which makes it practical much longer into the season and for basketball events as well.

This is probably my favorite, although I don't want to step on the toes of my Alabama friends who would of course love this dress.  Also, I can't see the bottom, so I'm not sure that the length would work.  The good thing is the neckline.  It's very modest and would lend itself easily to keeping up with a toddler.  Plus, with a red cardigan, I could take this into the winter as well.

I think this is a super cute dress too!  My only problem with it is the length.  Luckily, I'm only 5'2" so it would probably hit me at the knees.  I also like that it's umpire waste.  It's a very forgiving look post baby!  I don't think a sweater would look too cute with this one, so winter sports would be out...but it's cute for football!

And finally, the ever trendy dress.  I love that the neckline is high, and the length would again work for my short legs.  I'm just worried that the print would make me look like the broad side of a barn.  Plus, who knows if this will be trendy next year?  The others are timeless.

So what do you think?  Which would you pick?


  1. Ummm I pick... A hoodie an jeans?! Haha! And I promise I am born and raised in the south :-)

    But my two favs are the one shouldered and the halter neck.

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
