Just The Two of Us

Eric's mom called me on Saturday to ask about watching the kids for a few days.  They were actually just there last weekend while I worked and Eric fought off the cold of the century, but we decided to go ahead and send them back so that we could get a few things done around the house.

We met for lunch in Owensboro on Sunday, and my in-laws took the kids back with them.  Funny story, we stopped for gas on the way home and went in to get a candy bar and water.  Yeah, it was $17...and Eric paid for it by accident.  Ugh!

Anyway, once we made it home I took a short dip in the pool before we got started knocking out chores.  Eric cleaned the van while I worked on organizing my closet.  About 9:30 we quit working and were too tired to cook, so we ate at White guilty pleasure. 

Monday we continued our projects - Eric did some more detailing on the car, and I knocked out Eli's closet.  Yesterday I changed the sheets. cleaned the house and did a few loads of laundry while Eric mowed the yard.  Once again we were too tired to cook, so we went out for Mexican.

While I miss my babies a ton, it was so nice to go out to eat, finish a few projects, stay up late, and spend some time with my honey.  We watched movies, relaxed, and had uninterrupted conversations! 

 That all comes to an end tonight when Eli and Ellie get home, and I can't wait for a house pull chaos because I know that come October we'll have another little get-a-way...just the two of us.

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
