The Kentucky Traveler

One of the perks of working in television is the opportunity to meet some famous faces. I had the chance to do just that tonight.  Grammy Award winning Bluegrass and Country Music artist, Ricky Skaggs, was in Bowling Green to promote his new book, Kentucky Traveler.  

I interviewed him before the lecture and book signing.  He was truly a humble man who was eager to share his faith.  I sorta felt like I had been to church after hearing his speak.  He actually said something that will stick with me forever.

He said: The Apostle Paul didn't make Christian tents.  He was a Christian who made tents."

I loved that reminder - you don't have to work in the ministry in order to minister to someone.  You can be a witness no matter what your occupation.  God has given us all different talents, and he has a calling on all our lives.  We simply have to be obedient and give him glory no matter what type of work he calls us to do.

Anyway, Ricky Skaggs happens to be one of Eric's favorite recording artists.  He is the one who introduced me to Ricky's music.  In fact, he chose one of his songs "Thanks Again" to dance with his mom at our wedding.  (wow there were a lot of prepositions in that sentence.)

 I would venture to guess that aside from getting married and the birth of our children, this might about been the highlight of Eric's life. ha! Ok, I'm being dramatic, but as you can see below, the man was excited!!

I also have to give a shout out to two wonderful women from my bible study group, Susan and Beth, who came over to keep the kids so that we go.  They have been such a blessing to me and my family.  Eli wasn't too thrilled when they left. Ha!

Obviously, it was a great night!

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
