Dear Blog

Dear Blog,

My poor, neglected blog.  How I've missed you- recording our memories, writing down our stories, absently documenting the fleeting thoughts that pass through my head.  The truth is, September has been a busy month for us.  Naturally, you would think this would help feed content and drive me to inspiration. Instead, I've been too busy to sit, or think, or or write.

 I have started many posts, but they've ended and in a negative tone, and I just couldn't do that to you, my friend.  Keeping it real, yes. Being a Debbie Downer, no thanks.  So, I apologize for my absences the past few weeks.  You'll understand that I'm trying to manage my one billion responsibilities.  It's been a month of trial and error, but I'm finally ready to let go of the illusion that I can get it together. I'm embracing the chaos and learning to enjoy the ride.

I'll be trying to be playing catch up for the next few days.  I thank you in advance for keeping up with this roller coaster of a journey, and I thank you for tagging along.  It really is a pleasure looking back on all of the memories we have made.  Here are a few things we can talk about soon:

Labor Day Weekend
Fall Bucket List
Back To Vandy
When It Rains It Pours
Weekend Recap
I Remember
Our Date Weekend
Tackiling It Head On
Pinterest Failed me
Radar's Birthday
Sweet Sunday
Jesus And Coffee

Thanks in advance for keeping up!


Your Well-Behind Writer.

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
