10 Reasons Why Pinterest Is Not Real Life

I'll be the first to admit that I love Pinterest.  I may or may not visit the site several times a day, and I've used it for great recipes, decorating ideas, and even some fashion tips.  The thing is, I always walk away with this weird complex that if I'm not sipping a Starbucks coffee and taking a "selfie" of my magazine cover wardrobe, I've failed for the day.  

The thing is, that's stupid...and so are some of the ideas on Pinterest.

1.  No One In Their Right Mind Would Celebrate Divorce : what do you do wrap gifts and sing, "Happy Divorce Day To You" ? 

2. You Can Not Ride A Bicycle During A Blizzard: besides who would actually document this?  I can just see a new trend in selfies. UGH!

3. No Man With Any Pride Would Take A Picture Like This: it's like pulling teeth to get a yearly Christmas picture with Eric.  Besides, this is clearly photoshoped.  At no time does it snow directly into your hands and no where else around you.  

4. Because Pictures Like This Are Called Child Neglect In Real Life:  Poor Kid.

5. It Costs A Fortune For Cakes Like This: by the way, what's up with the creepy alien foot.  Oh wait, I get's a Baby Shower cake...weird!!

6. Life Is Not All Sunshine And Lollipops: Whatever happened to Lemon-aid Stands.  Gosh, don't these parents know that ice cream melts!! So, so unrealistic!!!!

7. Crayons Melt Too:  I know because I tried this and it was an EPIC FAIL...sorry Tina!

8. No One Other Than You Wants Your Child's Footprint: sorry, but it's true.  Dude, you just put candy in the bag your child trampled on.  I'm pretty sure that's not sanitary. 

9. Believe It Or Not, You Can Work Out Without Taking A Selfie: SHOCKER!! Oh, no one with a real job, real kids, or a real life could ever look like that.  Sorry, it's just false advertisement. 

10. Under The Stairs Safe Rooms Are Useless: "in case of an intruder."  I don't think we have to worry about that in Suburbia.  I like the idea.  Although, I would use the space to stash away the stuff I don't have time to clean up before guests arrive...THAT is practical!!!

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
