Weekend Warriors

Ya'll we had a busy weekend full of baby preparations!  We hit the ground running on Saturday morning after sleeping until 8:30 !! Thanks Eli, Mommy appreciates the extra rest!  By the way, I love this picture we snapped before church this morning. 

We spent the day cleaning out/washing/and organizing baby clothes.  It kills me to have to get rid of Eli's stuff, but we don't have room anymore.  I do plan on selling some of his things to help pay off the van...GO US!! Plus, Miss Ellie needs some closet space too.  Actually, she needs a lot of it!  
While me and Little Man were busy inside, Eric spent the day working on the lockers that will go in Eli's room.  Then it was a quick trip to the Dollar Store, some quick showers, and finally dinner time!!

We actually ate really well this weekend!  Eric made fried egg sandwiches on Friday.  They are fast, simple, and one of my favorites!  Then, I made homemade Banana Nut Bread for breakfast yesterday, and we had grilled steak, fried orkra, salad, bread, and sauteed mushrooms for dinner..YUM!!

Today I mixed homemade vegetable soup for lunch.  We rounded out the weekend with homemade Shrimp Scampi and Red Lobster Biscuits for dinner.  I know, we're awesome!

Cooking wasn't the only thing we did today.  We made a pre-baby check list, cleaned out a closet, did some laundry, played with Eli, and wore the dog plum out.  Hahaha!  There were also a few snuggles on this cold, rainy Sunday.  

Oh yeah, there was also that moment when I dropped my iPhone in the dishwater.  Stupid Otter Box was NOT worth the money.  Guess a trip to the ATT Store is on the agenda tomorrow!


  1. I want the fried egg sandwich recipe, and the shrimp scampi recipe!!

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
