Anniversary Trip: Day Two

Ya'll, I was hoping that after neglecting to take pictures yesterday I would do better today. Yeah, not so much.  I apologize in advance for the boring shots and the possibilty of a few pictures stolen from a Google search. Ha!   The thing is, when the kids aren't around I forget to use the camera.  This is a problem because I really do want to remember this trip.

Ok.  Now that we've gotten that out of the way, let's move on.

After sleeping eleven glorious hours last night, we were ready to have some fun. Eric missed the memo that it was freezing outside and left the hotel in shorts and a tee shirt.  It was 47 degrees!!  I was wondering what the heck he was thinging, but I didn't want to judge.  He regretted it later.

Anyway, we ate lunch at Roosters which was actually a horrible experience.  The food was terrible, but no hard feeling.  You live and learn.  Eric also got food hung in his throat and went rushing off to the bathroom.  Lovely.

 We decided that since we haven't seen a movie in the theaters in about three years today would be the perfect day!  Not only did we get to take in a flick, we saw it in IMAX...whoot!  The theater was actually really close to IKEA, so we headed there next.

 After scoring on a few buys, Eric treated me with a trip to the outlet mall.  It was freezing, but we walked to all the stores.  Would you believe the only thing we ended up buying was a pretzel from Aunti Anne's?

We went back to the hotel for a few minutes to relax before dinner.  Eric had done some research, so we knew we wanted to eat at a local restaurant for dinner.  We decided on Dewey's Pizza.  It was so funny because we would see men stop in to pick up a pizza for their families (I guess on the way home from work) and every single one of them would sit at the bar and drink while they waited.  

We ended up getting the Bronx Bommer and it was AMAZING!!! If you're up in that area, you should try it.

After dinner we made a quick trip to Kroger and target.  I finally used a gift card I had to buy some new undies and a pair of gym pants.  I'm telling you, it's the small things in life.  I couldn't have been happier with a whole new wardrobe.  Okay, maybe...but this was great!

Now we're back in the room getting ready to watch Scandal!!!!  I'll try to do better with the pictures tomorrow, but no promises!

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
