In The Still Of The Night

When Eli was born, I HATED waking up with him because there was absolutely nothing to entertain myself while I fed him, diapered him, and paced the floor with him.  While I'm still not a fan a losing sleep, I am blessed with a more agreeable baby this go around.  That, and a whole slue of fun programming.

When Ellie first came home from the hospital, I would watch Saved By The Bell reruns on Netflix.  Don't did the trick!  I still watch it every now and then, but I've fallen into a more predictable routine thanks to a wonderful little invention known as the DVR.

On Sunday nights I record Army Wives.  I've watched every single season, but I'm not too sure that I would have kept up with the show's cast changes this year had it not been for needing middle of the night entertainment.  Either way, the new season isn't half bad.  

Monday nights aren't the best for viewing, so I either watch old episodes of Army Wives on Netflex or I watch Modern Family.  We used to record it, but never kept up.  This means that I have lots of episodes to choose from.  It's not my favorite show, but again, it helps pass the time!

Tuesdays my guilty pleasure comes on tv...Dance Moms.  Honestly, after the first two seasons I stopped being an avid viewer.  I just kinda watched it if I happened to catch it on.  I mean how many times can you have the same fight?  Anyway, that all changed after Ellie was born.  I needed something to watch, and this does keep me entertained at the midnight hour. 

Oh goodness, Wednesday is the best TV night ever!  Not only to I DVR Mondern Family to watch at a later date, I also record Nashville.  I am a huge, huge fan!  The cast is so talented, and the story line leaves me wanting more every single week!!  Wednesdays are by far my favorite night to be up with Ellie Girl!!

Also on Wednesday nights is Duck Dynasty.  I have to say that I had heard about the show for so long that I was kinda against watching it.  However, I caught a random episode, and I fell in love. I'm convinced that it's staged, but who cares, it keeps me rolling.  I DVR it on Wednesdays and watch it on Thursday nights.  

I also record random Lifetime movies to pass the time, and I've become a gamer...sorta!  Four Pics, One Word is a favorite pastime as is solitaire.  Yep, this go-a-round I am thankful for modern technology -specifically DVR, Netflix, and the iphone!!

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
