Monday Musings

Ya’ll, I do really well with blogging for a week or two before I fall off the bandwagon and get behind.  It’s a vicious cycle…and a silly problem. Ha!  I always say to myself that blogging isn’t all that important, but then I spend hours rereading older posts and realize that I have forgotten so many small things.  I just can’t give it up yet.

Last week was a rough, rough week in so many ways.  I probably won’t ever blog about, because it’s not my battle to fight or my story to tell, but it was just a heavy seven days with a burdened heart for people I love.  However, in the midst of it, the Lord taught me a lot about choosing my battles, giving people grace, and letting go of fights that aren’t mine.  You can expect the theme of "letting go" to pop up in your reader at some point this week. I also have to document our Fall Bucket List, and recant the story of the time I almost got kicked out of the Dollar Store.  Good times, let me tell you. 

Speaking of “good times,” We had a really great weekend that included family movie night, some consignment shopping for me and Ellie, a visit from Eric’s parents, and a baby shower for Haven. Oh, and I almost died this morning.  Ok, not really, but my blow dyer legit caught on fire while I was doing my hair this morning.  I’m not talking a few sparks.  There were full sized flames and smoke!  I screamed like a crazy lady before throwing the dyer out into the yard for safe measure.  It was awful.

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
