Father's Day Weekend

Now that the Disney World recap is finished, I guess it's time to get back to reality.  Honestly, we kinda easied back in last week by having Eric's mom and dad watch the kids while we tended to the garden, unpacked, did laundry, and caught up at work.  We may or may not have snuck in a date night too!

As long as I make up the hours at some point during the week, I can work half days on Fridays throughout the summer months, which is exactly what I did.  Then I skipped the gym to come home and nap while the kids were gone.  I did a little laundry after I woke up, and then it was time to go get Eli and Ellie.

Eric and I ended up getting to the meeting spot a little early, so we went shopping.  He surprised me with the most beautiful pair of earrings as an early birthday present.  How sweet is that?!  We were so excited to see the kids and share a yummy dinner with his family before heading home.

On Saturday I took the kids shopping for Father's Day gifts, and I picked up a few things for myself too. Ha!  Back at home we had family movie night at watched Paddington.  Sunday after church we went to eat at Cracker Barrel, and then Eric surprised me with a new deck chair.  I'm telling you what, he was full of them all weekend!  Then we went back home to swim, grill steaks, and have some family time.  I can't imagine better way to spend my birthday and Father's Day.

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
