Ten Thursday Thoughts

1. It's Thursday which means only one day stands between me and the weekend! Can I get a "Hallelujah?"

2.  It's been a super short week with Monday off, plus Eli leaves tonight to spend time with my parents.  We actually have two separate weddings this weekend and didn't think Eli would love sitting through them!

3. It makes me almost sick thinking about him leaving, and the older he gets the worse I become.  I think when he was younger I was just so exhausted that I didn't care.  Now I think about all I'll miss out on like cuddling at night and playing together.

4. I know it's good for him to be away, and maybe even better for my parents to enjoy him, but it's still hard.

5. Of course it's also good for me and Eric.  We can have quiet dinners, go on dates, sleep late and get caught up on some things around the house.

6. Usually I clean on Mondays but my goal is to do it this weekend so that me and baby boy can enjoy some fall fun next week.

7. Speaking of fall, we went to the library yesterday to check out some books.  Eli is really into Christmas right now, and just doesn't understand why it's taking so long for Santa to come.  Every time it gets a little cool he starts asking.  I thought it would be fun to spread some fall cheer!

8. I love fall.  It's my favorite time of year, and I fully intend to enjoy every possible minute of it!  I think maybe Eli and I should start by decorating the front porch?!

9. I have a gift card to Target, so maybe I'll run by there when I get off work to pick up a few goodies.  Then it's off to get my hair cut.

10.  I still can't decide on a style.  Any suggestions?

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
