Midweek Musings

Happy Hump Day, ya'll!  I can't believe that we are halfway through the week already!  This weekend Eric and I celebrate 7 years of marriage, I get to watch one of my very best friends walk down the aisle, and next week is Fall Break.  CRAZY!!!

I have a couple of funny stories that I want to document this week, so hang with me.

Yesterday, Sabrina and I tried a new restaurant in town called Pie Queen, and it was right up my ally.  It was tucked in the most precious ally just off of the town square, and it was decorated like a 1940s cafe all the way down to the vintage table clothes!  I LOVED it, and enjoyed the company even more.

The problem is that it's fairly small inside, and seating is limited.  It's not a huge issue...except when someone asks for your table and proceeds to stare at you until you finally get up and eat your dessert STANDING UP!  I could not believe that someone was so rude!  It's no reflection on the establishment, of course, but seriously lady, brush up on your manners.

In other news, I'm always toying around with the idea of starting a little blog dedicated to my Goodwill finds, but selfies make me extremely uncomfortable.  Today I ran to Goodwill on my lunch break and took a picture of my outfit while I was trying on a "new dress."

Well, pride cometh before the fall.  After I snapped the above photo, I bought a different dress, and rushed out the door.  Would you believe that as soon as I set down in my car, the dress I was wearing (shown above) ripped at the zipper seam?  UGH!!  I wasn't too concerned because I was wearing a cardigan.  However, when I got out at work I realized the sweater was too short to cover it.

I had to change into the "new" unwashed dressed, which is gross but way better than getting fired for indecent exposure.  Yes?  I'm taking the whole situation as a sign that I am not ready to start a "fashion" blog.  

To wrap of this midweek update, I would like to share with you my little lady.  She dressed herself, and aside from choosing a Halloween Costume, I think her coordinating abilities are pretty solid.  Who knows, maybe she'll be the one to start a fashion blog.


  1. Oh recounting the table story a few times this week and it makes me laugh everytime now.
    Oh woman!

    And why did you not call me to go to goodwill!!! I need to go. I despise selfies too. You could always take pics of your awesome finds on hangers?!! I vote yes.

    I need to find your blog motivation!! I am sucking it up.

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
