Anniversary Trip

Ya'll, we just got back from our annual anniversary trip, and we were able to help celebrate one of my best friends from college as she got married!  As you will see from the pictures, we basically ate our way through Georgia and South Carolina.

We left on Thursday evening as soon as my mom and dad got to the house to watch the kids.  We stopped somewhere in middle Tennessee for dinner, but all we could find open was Burger King.  Since it was late and we were tired, we ate in the car and didn't stop again until we made it to Atlanta for the night. 

Friday morning we slept in since we had arrived so late.  Then we grabbed a quick lunch at Jason's Deli and hit the road for the rest of the trip to Augusta.  After checking into our hotel, we dressed and headed straight to meet the wedding party.  Please note that I forgot to book a hotel, thus we were not able to stay with everyone else.  I'm super organized and responsible like that.

We drove to South Carolina for the rehearsal and then enjoyed dinner at Carrabba's before heading back to the hotel for bed.  Saturday was spent getting ready for the wedding and celebrating Kristen.  Ya'll, she was such a champ dealing with all the rain.  Seriously, we joked and told her that she should name her first kid Joaquin after the hurricane that wreaked havoc on her wedding!

Sunday was really the day that Eric and I got to spend together, which is appropriate since it was our 7 year anniversary.  We slept in and then found this local gem for lunch.  It might look like a shack, but heavens, ya'll, it was amazing!

After lunch, we spent the day shopping and scored some great deals at Sears where we found a $3 rack!!  We also indulged in a few too many donuts before heading to a movie where we ate even more...popcorn!

As if we couldn't possibly be hungry, we ate again at California Dream.  Below is my pasta platter.  I could only eat half, go figure!  

This morning we woke up early and drove to Atlanta where we stopped for a quick trip through IKEA and lunch.  As soon as we made it home, I dropped Eric off in Bowling Green to mow while I went to E-town to meet Mom and Dad and get my babies.

Time away is always much needed, but it makes coming back home all the sweeter.  Tomorrow I'm off work again, so were going to enjoy a little quality time.

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
