Midweek Musings

I know that I normally do these little weekly updates on Wednesday, but tomorrow is the 100th Day of School, so I will have plenty of other content to post.  Today I want to dump some photos from the phone and jot down a few little things to remind me of the ordinary moments in life.

Friday I was in charge of helping with our monthly birthday celebration at work, so my "office mom" and I went to Sam's on our lunch break. She's the best, ya'll.  I hope to someday make work as fun for a newbie as she has for me!

I took this picture one day last week too.  I try to get up every morning to shower and have my prayer time before the busyness of the day.  Since I threw out that last statement, I want to humbly admit that lately I haven't been getting up as early as I should, so that means an abbrieveted time (shame on me). 

 Anyway, Ellie woke up early this particular morning, and sat with me while I prayed.  I ended up praying over her the whole time, and snapped the sweet picture. 

 Working moms, some days it's harder to leave than other.  Hang in there with me...we are awesome!!

This picture was from a different morning, but when I came back into the family room after making the beds, this is the way I found them. See, proof that they are sweet sometimes.  Bless it, ya'll.  AHHH!

Again, because I can't stand Polly Perfects, I wanna keep it real and say that my house is far from clean.  I just try to make of habit of picking up to tidy up my mind.  I have a long way to go in this department.

Finally, let's talk about being Kentuckian.  I'm toying with the idea of a post dedicated to my love for this state, but I'm afraid ya'll will quit being my friend.  Ha!  For now I will share this.  Chaney's Dairy Barn is a must if you are in Southern Kentucky (SOKY), and what could be more Kentuckian than...Bourbon Ice Cream?!?  Seriously, it's as delightful has it sounds; sorta like really sweet Bourbon balls.

And yes.  I realize that I just spoke about Jesus a few paragraphs above, but let's not judge.  We're not talking about getting drunk and jumping on the crazy train.  It's just bourbon ice cream!


  1. This post is so you. Love it. Love you. Hate bourbon balls. Growing to love KY- the state not the team ;-)

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
