Midweek Musings

Happy Hump Day!  Doesn't it feel so great to be halfway though the work week?  We don't have any big plans this weekend, so we are looking forward to some family time on Saturday and a few fun activities on Sunday. 

This week has been a lot of fun with the rain slacking off just a bit and Griffin visiting on Tuesday.  Tonight we had some impromptu fun swimming as a family and playing some games.  Last month after Eli's surgery, we ran in Target to get Eli a gift.  While we were there, Eric found a package of games for $6, so we bought them for the camper.  We busted them out tonight, and it was some good, family fun!

This is my last week of summer hours at work.  This basically means that I work extra time Monday-Thursday so that I can make up enough hours to leave at noon on Friday.  I usually go in 30 minutes early and take a 30 minute lunch.  This gives me an hour each day.  There was a Board Meeting this week, so I will actually have more time!

Please excuse the random photo dump.  If you follow me on Instagram, these are all explained there.  I just want to add them to my blog for memory's sake.  Anyway, we had a milestone in our house this week.  I busted out my pageant gowns.  Out of all of the years I competed, I had ONE favorite.  I really wanted to wear it for my wedding, but I didn't since it was "bubblegum pink."

Apparently Ellie is just like her Momma because of all the dresses I pulled out, she fancied this one.  Ha! What a joy to share these special memories with her!

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
