Labor Day Weekend

I was a pretty big slacker this weekend when it came to taking pictures, but at least I am blogging about it.

We went to Lexington to visit with my family, but I thought that we would never make it thanks to all of the other travelers.  When we finally got there, we went straight to my sister's house because my parents were giving the kids new beds, and they were at her house.  They were thrilled!

Saturday started with a little doughnut/ yard selling date for me and Eric.  Don't judge, it's the small things in life.  Ha! After a quick lunch, we started getting ready for my cousin's wedding and spent the evening celebrating the new marriage with family.  It had been a very long time since I had seen a lot of my family, so it was good to catch up with everyone. After the wedding, my parents watched the kids so that Eric and I could spend the evening catching up with my sister and her hubby.

We kicked off Sunday with another round of doughnuts.  After a lazy morning, we got ready for the day and ate a delicious lunch of pot roast!  My mom and I ran to the mall and Wal-Mart, and then it was a time for Eli's party.  My sister graciously threw him a party with family and friends who can't always travel to Bowling Green.  He was so thrilled, and it blessed my heart that she thought of him enough to do that and that my brother and his wife cut their camping trip short to come.

After the Paw Patrol Party,  we went out to dinner with my siblings and their spouses.  It was so nice to eat out without a kid choking, or climbing all over the seat ,or terrorizing a restaurant.  We ended the night with dessert at Applebee's because a Blondie is pretty much the best treat ever!

We wrapped up the weekend with another lazy start to the day and a quick lunch before loading up and hitting the road to beat the other travelers.  It was a wonderful and relaxing way to wrap up the summer and welcome my favorite season...fall!!!

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
