Oh hey there, it’s time for Friday Favorites!
I’m pretty excited for today and not just because it’s the weekend! This morning I’m taking Jude to Sesame Street LIVE! Okay so we don’t really watch that much tv around here with Jude, but he has seen Sesame Street and really likes when we play the music on our phones. So when a mom’s group I’m in talked about getting group tickets and they were only $9 each I was sold! They are pretty decent seats and I think Jude is going to love it! That or he’ll be terrified and hate it. But whatever, I’m excited!
Okay on to today’s post, it’s more of a currently post because I’ve been so MIA and I have a bunch to catch up on with y’all!
Loving – the snow! It finally snowed on Tuesday night and BTR actually had a snow day on Wednesday! We bundled Jude up and took him outside to play and at first he HATED it. No seriously go look at BTR’s Instagram for proof. He eventually got excited and played in it for a bit. Of course Addie couldn’t be happier in the snow and has been begging to go outside constantly the past three days. Go check out the tag #badaddie on Instagram to see how crazy she is!
Going oops – when sharing my Christmas recap I completely forgot to share my favorite gifts from BTR and Jude! They bought me a mom-tography class from an amazing photographer in STL! It’s at the end of January and I cannot wait for it! Also, BTR got me some Sharpie markers. You can’t really read the tag but it says they are from BTR Woodworks because I always get mad at him when I can’t find my markers in the basement when I’m shipping because he moved them.
Wearing – my favorite Hunter boots and monogrammed socks! It’s finally cold and wet enough to wear them so I’m pretty much not ever taking them off. I bought my boots and boot socks at Nordstrom and I also had them monogrammed in store at Nordstrom, I think it was only $10 extra for the monogramming. And so worth it because look at how cute that is!
Wondering – how Jude knows the difference between Aldi cheese-its and name brand Cheez-Its. Not cool dude.
Washing – all the laundry with my new free Seventh Generation laundry detergent samples! If you aren’t a member of Generation Good yet, you should be, they send awesome samples all the time!
Not moving – nearly enough. Do you have a FitBit? I do and it is telling me I’m not moving enough! Also did you know that you can connect your FitBit account to your Walgreens Balance Rewards account and get points? No seriously it’s like free money for just walking!
Snapchatting – gems like this one. You definitely need to be following me (username: ellieandaddie) to make sure you don’t miss out on things like when Jude pours vegetable oil all over himself and the kitchen floor… :/ #itwasBTRsfault
Searching – the basement and the rest of the house for things I can sell. I sold my first thing on a b/s/t board for a mom’s group I’m in and I think I might be addicted to finding more things I can get rid of. Plus we need to make room for a second kid! :)
And the opposite of purging – is buying. I’ve passed on the last few Target beauty boxes, but this one looked pretty good and didn’t include mascara so I grabbed it!
Spraying – also if you are looking for a new dry shampoo, look no further. I ordered this one by Batiste from Target and I LOVE it!
Reading – my Day In The Life post from yesterday! These really are some of my favorite posts! Go check it out!
Okay that’s all for today friends! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
