Ice Ice Baby

We were predicted to get some ice this morning, I just somehow missed the memo that it would start before dawn.  So,  I was less than amused when I went to start my car and nearly busted my hind end on the side walk.  I ended up walking through the grass just to get some traction.  

Assuming the roads would be as bad as my driveway, I  skipped my shower to hit the road.  Skipping a shower is a sure fire way to put me in a rotten mood!  Luckily, I can navigate my way through snow and ice.  Not so lucky, my balance....being 8 months pregnant and trying to skate (I mean walk) across the parking lot is NOT fun.  Needless to say, I was the than kind to my coworkers this morning.

Eric and I decided that driving the back roads to daycare was too risky, so Eli could spend the day with me.  I didn't get much work done, but I sure did enjoy his company.  I think he really loved seeing himself in all the studio monitors and in front of the green screen!

After about two hours Eli was getting restless, but I still had work to do.  Being the genious I am, I decided to take him to Chick-fil-A where he could play while I used their WIFI to work from my phone.  Two hours, two sweet teas, and twelve chicken nuggets later we were headed to the grocery store.

I don't normally like to bring Eli along because he asks for EVERYTHING he sees, but I had no choice.  Lucky for me, sitting in the back of the buggy with all the food seemed to keep him happy!  Ha!

We then went home where we put away the groceries, picked up the house, and waited for Eric to get home from work.  I thought we would stay in tonight, but Eric needed to run to Sam's Club.  So, we fixed a nutrious dinner of fried egg sandwiches before running some errands.

We're back home warm and resting, and hoping Little Man settles down easily since we have such a big day in store tomorrow getting ready for our little bundle of joy!!

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
