Our Date Weekend

Eric and I have enjoyed the most wonderful weekend together.  I met my parents in E-town on Thursday with the kids, and of course they we're all excited (grandparents and kids alike), then I came home and vegged out with my hubby.  It was wonderful being able to go to bed when we wanted and watch non-cartoon shows on TV.  Ha!  It's the small things!

Friday after work I took my sweet time getting off of work.  Then I ran some errands, stopped by Goodwill and picked Eric up from work.  We toured the St. Jude Dream Home, which is something we would not have braved with the kids.  Afterwards we picked up some BBQ for dinner.  We spent the rest of the night outside on the back porch relaxing around the fire pit. 

It was heavenly getting to sleep in yesterday morning.  We weren't in a rush to eat breakfast or get anywhere.  We almost missed the UK v. Louisville Game, but we ended up watching it before heading to the Bluegrass Festival.  That's where I ate the best Hot Dog of my life...YUM!!

I may or may not have also consumed a red velvet funnel cake, chips, and cookies.  I kinda wrecked the diet, but when you sit through an all day concert you kinda get bored.  Plus it was wonderful spending quality time with my hubby. 

We had VIP tickets, so Eric was able to meet the members of The Grascals following the concert, and of course, he was on cloud nine.  They are really super nice people, and I enjoyed their music. 

After the little meet and greet we stopped by a Mexican Restaurant for dinner then came home to watch a movie and relax some more.  

We had evey intention of going to church this morning, but we slept too late.  That's ok, it meant we were able to pick up the kids.  It sure was nice having alone time with my hubby and catching up on rest wasn't too bad either!  I sure did miss my babies though!

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
