Disney On Ice

I don't know who was more excited about Disney on Ice, me or Ellie!  After her little party, my mom and I left to get to Rupp Arena on time.  We were super early, so we hit up the souvenir line before it got too crowded.  

We grabbed Papa John's Pizza for dinner and took it to our FRONT ROW SEATS to eat.   Seriously, floor-level, front row.  My parents are awesome!

Ellie was thrilled.  As soon as she got the first glimpse at Minnie Mouse, she was in a trance. 

Ya'll the show was fantastic.  The musical selections were the best of each movie, and the costuming was extraordinary. 

Bonus fact: I always wanted to be a figure skater.  It's true.  I'll share that story with you another time, but just know that Disney and ice are two of my favorite things.  

Just so you know, the camera was not on zoom for these photos.  My mom truly outdid herself on this seats.  I feel so blessed to have experienced the show from our vantage point. 

There were scenes from The Little Mermaid, Nemo, Lilo and Stitch, and Peter Pan.  

Many of the performers entered and exited the stage right in front of our seats which just add to the overall experience for me. 

Counting the intermission, it was about a two hour show which was perfect for families with little ones.  Between her souvenir, dinner, cotton candy, and the show Ellie was never without a moments entertainment. 

I hope Ellie felt like a princess because the little lady deserves it!  Thanks, Mom, for the tickets!!

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
