Midweek Musings

Let's start by celebrating the fact that this is a short work week!  I took off Monday, and the offices are closed on Friday for July 4th weekend.  That means that I am getting lots and lots of time with these little people of mine. 

I shared this picture on Instagram, but I wanted to add it here too.  On Monday when Ellie woke up, she sat down next to me while I waited for my morning brew, and said, "Mommy, I dink coffee you?"  Bless her little heart.  She was so excited when I added a little "Joe" (aka Diet Pepsi) to her cup.  I foresee a lot of coffee dates in our future.  

I mentioned this in another post, but I just had to share it again.  Our vacuum cleaner is on the fritz, and there are a lot of other things (like clothes) that I would rather spend my money on, so I was super excited when I found this replacement for $25!! It's less than a year old and was super clean.  

While I'm on the subject of great deals, I had to share this too.  See the hefty price tag on this Joker set?  I looked it up after I bought Eli the exact same one at Goodwill for $2!  Can you even believe it?

  I used to do a Thrifty Thursday post each week were I shared some of my Goodwill finds and other great deals.  I get very excited about these things, so I'm just wondering if I have any readers out there who would be interested in me bringing back that post?!?

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
