Monday Musings

1. This is one of those weird posts that no one other than myself cares about, so feel free to skip.  I'm just jotting down a few things I don't want to forget.

2. My blog is so, so outdated.  It needs a major face-life, and it would probably be a good thing to go ahead and add Ellie to the side bar...just sayin'. Eli was two when we had those last pictures taken.

3. In less than one month (ONE MONTH, ya'll)  Ellie will be a year old.  My goodness, that blows my mind.  We're planning her a very low key celebration with family and a few close friends.  Bless her heart, I think a new carseat will be her big gift.

4. I've been such a slacker with baby number two.  She doesn't sleep through the night, I haven't weened her from the bottle, and she spends the majority of her days in a sleeper.

5. Along those same lines our little "Bucket List" is usually completed by early February, but we've yet to check anything off this year.  Oh well, Saturdays spent playing with the kids and catching up on chores seems to be a much better option for us these days.

6. This coming Saturday we'll be signing Eli up for t-ball.  I am so stinkin' excited!!  He has been waiting to play since he was like two.  Poor guy.  Eric is going to coach, and  I can't wait to find out what team he'll be on so that I can buy jewelery and order Ellie a matching, monogrammed shirt!

6. Moving on.  I am so, sooooooo over winter.  Everyone everywhere is getting record breaking snowfalls.  Here in the "Bowling Green Bubble" we're getting recorded breaking cold and bone chilling rains.  Usually I hold out for "one good snow," but this year I want sunshine and summer time.

6.My parents bought me an early birthday gift, and I'll be seeing "Beauty And The Beast" Off Broadway next month.  Can. Not. Wait!!!

7. We also booked and paid down half of our condo rental for vacation.  Whoot!!!  Plus, we're going to spend another day at Disney.  It will be Eli's third trip and Ellie's first. Yay, Yay, Yay!!

8. We've already filed our taxes, so can't wait for the refund to come.  We're going to pay off the van.

9. Of course it will come just in time to buy Eric a new vehicle.  By new I totally mean used, but new to us, and in can be paid off in three years or less.

10.  That is all.  Have a safe and warm Monday

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
