Rehearsal Dinner

Friday after work, I headed home to pack up for wedding weekend.  Eric took a half day at work, and then we left for Richmond. We had to pick Eli up at daycare, run through the McDonald's drive-thru and drop Louie off at Clay's house before heading to the church.  It was kind of crazy, but we made it literally just in time for the rehearsal.   When I say "just in time,"  I mean we changes clothes on the way!

 I took lots of pictures, but of course left them on my dad's camera.  I guess this will have to do until the next time I'm home...which will be Thanksgiving!
Consider this "facebook" steal a nice little tease until then!

My aunt Susanne ran the reheasal itself, and she's pretty awesome.  That meant we were in and out in about 35 minutes.  Of course I had to stay a little longer to practice me song for the wedding.  Think I made it through?  You'll have to tune in tomorrow to see. Ha!

After my sound check we headed to the winery hosting the dinner.  It was beautiful, and the food was beyond amazing.  Of course the company was even better.  No one wanted to leave.  I think it was about 10:00 before we all left for the night.

I had to head back to Clay's house to pick up Louie.  Then mom and dad rode home with me while Eric stayed to spend a little extra time with my brother.  They had a bonfire!

It was such a special evening and a prelude to the wedding day.

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
