Hi Friends! Get ready for lots of pictures and not a lot of text. Because well, I forgot to actually write my Day In The Life until a week and a half later and I’m trying to remember everything based on pictures. :) And don’t forget to stop by on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow) to see the entire roundup for this quarter’s Day In The Life!

Brandon – 32 years old
Liz – 31 years old
Jude – 3 years and 6 months
Ezra – 1 year and 5 months
Ellie – 10 years old
Addie – 7 years old
6:30 am – My alarm goes off and I hit snooze. Do. Not. Want. To. Get. Up.
Get up, wash my face and do my hair. Take a selfie. Note, clean the bedroom mirror
Head into Jude’s room to start getting him awake, it’s a school day!
He’s not happy I’m shoving my camera in his face. I take him to the couch to watch a show (probably Curious George) and give him his breakfast.
Head back to Ezra’s room to get him up, but he’s already awake! Strip him down because he’s a mess at breakfast and I just let him eat in a diaper.
Put him in his high chair for his breakfast.
While the boys are eating with BTR I head back to their rooms and get their clothes out for the day since I didn’t do it the night before.
Head back to the kitchen and eat my breakfast, a pop tart. So grown up. BTR leaves for work and the boys wave out Ezra’s window, it’s pretty much the cutest thing in the world.
Time to get the boys dressed. They love to help with their socks. Which isn’t helpful. :)
Brush Jude’s hair.
Head out the door to get in the car and head to school! But first, a quick selfie on the front porch.
Drive to school and Jude pouts because I won’t carry his backpack in.
Successful drop off and E and I head out for some quick errands to get gas and the bank drive-thru.
Arrive at Chick-fil-A for story time! E is clearly excited for it, check out that cheese!
I order an iced coffee (my absolutely fave) and then we play a little before the story. E sits down for the story with the other kids and he looks so tiny and adorable.
After the story, we attempt the craft. Except I’m not feeling the glue and just give him a crayon. We’re still working on our artwork posing also.
After we have our snack at CFA we head to Sam’s to pick up a few groceries. And they already have out Christmas decorations!!!!
And for the record, Sam’s has the best prices and selections for kids books! I totally grabbed the new Jimmy Fallon book, Everything Is Mama for the boys!
After paying for our groceries it’s time to pick up Jude from school!
Head home with the boys and get ready for lunch. But first a visit to the monsters in our bushes. My latest DIY project!!
I’m an awesome mom and I turn on the TV to get both boys to focus and actually eat their lunch. Judge away.
I get my lunch prepped, which today is a frozen meal! And the XL iced tea I redeemed from my Cow Calendar treat at CFA earlier.
Ask Alexa to play my Pandora station and all is right in the [my kitchen] world.
E finishes his lunch and I clean him up to get ready for his nap! First kisses for Jude. And Jude’s Ellie and Addie of course.
Take E to his room for his nap and come back to the kitchen for my lunch and then I wash dishes.
After lunch I get Jude settled with some toys and then I head to my computer to get a few things done on the blog and I update my media kit to send to a company I’m working with!
Debate between which picture to upload to Instagram. Finally, settle on which one and I post it. Today’s published post was a Halloween book roundup!
Step away from the computer and start a craft project with Jude! I’ve been saving our empty gallons of milk for a month and I hope he’s as excited as me for this!
We have fun crafting and they actually look super cute! I’m going to put glow sticks in them at night to make them light up!
The doorbell rings and it’s the mailman! Got some fun packages from Old Navy and Amazon! I finally ordered a second snack tray for our stroller, and I got it from the Amazon Warehouse so it was cheaper!
I check the monitor and E is awake from his nap. And he’s in a good mood!
AND this is where my documenting starts to go downhill….. I have a few pictures so it is what it is!
There may have been a potty accident and I had to wash Jude’s rug. But I’m thankful it was on his washable rug and not the carpet!
BTR comes home and the boys are wild as always while we make dinner.
Ezra goes to bed super happy!!
Jude is not thrilled with my new Halloween decorations in his room. Spoiler, he got over it in a day and loves them now.
At some point in the evening, I hit my move goal! And yes that’s a beer on my desk.
Do more dishes, because that’s never-ending.
I have zero idea what we ate for dinner that night, but I did have a snack of Oreos while watching football with BTR on the couch!
And I snapped these pics of the pups because I didn’t want to forget them in the DITL. But you know who I don’t have a single picture of this time? Brandon. Not a single one. #fail.
Wash my face before bed.
And time for sleep!
Done! Definitely not my best roundup, but I’m so glad I did it to look back on! Thanks again for following along friends!
