Eat More Chicken

Here's a fun "Morgan Fact" for you....I don't like chicken.  Never have.  In fact, until I worked at
 Chick-fil-A as a Marketing Director, I never ate it.  However, CFA had it goin' on, and got me hooked.  Slowly but surely I have branched out, and I now eat chicken from time to time. What better occasion to enjoy some good fried chicken than Cow Appreciation Day!!  I mean all you have to do is dress like a cow and you get to eat anything on the menu for FREE...heck ya!

After work I came home to relax while the kids napped at daycare.  Usually I use this time to hit the gym, run errands, clean the house or catch up on sleep, but after such a weird week, I decided to bask in the sun.  It turned out to be a wise decision because Eli was in a horrible mood when I picked him up. Ugh...I hate days like this. 

Anyway, after an embarrassing meltdown at the hair stylists (from Eli) we came home and got to work on our cow costumes because we had plans to meet up with the Adkins family for dinner.  Actually, Tina and I were meeting up with the kids.  Gabe and Eric bailed on us to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings.  I'm gonna have to give them a break on this one too because nearly every family we saw had a less than enthusiastic dad.  Apparenly large crowds, dressing like a cow, and screaming kids just aren't the thing most men look forward to.  Ha!

These two boy hadn't seen each other in forever, so they were thrilled to be reunited.  Eli showed his joy by jumping up and down in the booth, losing his balance, and smashing his head against the chair.  

There'sever a dull moment I tell you!

No worries, he soon found his happy face, enjoyed a delicious and FREE meal, and some time in the play-place with his best friend.  These two cuties were just along for the ride.  They are totally second kids, blesss their little hearts!

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
