A Little Update

I am trying so hard to be a better blogger, and while I am certainly being more consistent, I'm still not into a solid routine.  In due time, ya'll….in due time.

So instead of going another whole week without an update, here's what I've got for you.  Last Friday night, Eric and I met his parents in Central City so that they could watch the kids while we knocked off some "To Do" items on our Spring Cleaning List.  After dinner with his family, we came back home and crashed on the couch where I proceeded to binge watch Fuller House.  It was a childhood favorite, and surprisingly pleasant this go-around. 

Saturday Eric worked outside before the rain came while I cleaned out the linen closet.  I'm too embarrassed to show you the "before" picture, but let's just say that I can finally fit my vacuum in there.  Once the rain hit, we went to town to run a few errands and even did grocery shopping sans kids…it was as amazing as it sounds.  We also stopped by Khols and had a yummy sushi dinner date before heading home to watch a little TV.  

Sunday morning we finished up a few projects before heading to pick up the kids, and from that point on the rest of the week has been interesting.  With the time change and the warmer weather, we are spending a lot of time outside in the evenings.  Monday I had to work late, and today Eli has been home sick with the Stomach Plague of 2016.  Seriously, I am so over it!!!

Tomorrow night the kids and I are heading to Lexington for the weekend while Eric gets our camper ready for Spring Break.  We are throwing the cutest baby shower for Mandi, and I can't wait to show off the pictures sometime next week!

So, pray for safe travels and healthy babies!

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
