Friday Favorites – Cool Weather Is Here!

Oh look, another week of not many posts… :( Maybe someday I will get better at this…

One.
The weather has finally cooled down! We went to story time Wednesday morning at the park and it was actually chilly out! I really love fall weather! Time to swap out clothes for all of us. And I think while I’m at it I’m going to purge some (read: LOTS) things. I still haven’t read the book EVERYONE is raving about, but it’s on my to-read list (with 598713489 other books of course).

Obviously the train table is still in our living room. And obviously this is the best place to play on it. #boymom

I hit 12 weeks for baby #2 on Thursday and I honestly feel like a fog is starting to lift! I’m feeling better and I’m slightly less tired than I was the past few weeks. And I’m definitely ready to bust out the maternity clothes already. I don’t really have a “bump” yet, but I’m definitely still carrying weight from Jude (just being honest) and let’s be real, elastic band pants for the win! That’s probably one of the best parts about the timing of this baby, all my maternity clothes are the perfect season to use again!

We have another CRAZY weekend planned. Beer releases, food trucks, chili cook-off, and maybe some Swedish meatballs to top it off? Yes, IKEA opened this week in STL and I’m dying to get over there and stock up on a few of my fave things since we haven’t been to one since earlier this summer when we were in Cincinnati!

Five.
Thank you for all the sweet notes and prayers about our family friends with the scary health news. Sadly, we got a report of another friend with some scary health news, but one of the people from last week had a good week! Sorry for all the vagueness, but I don’t feel as if it’s my information to share, but I know they would all appreciate the extra good thoughts and prayers if you have a moment!


Happy Friday friends! As always, I’m linking up with all the lovely ladies listed on my linkup page! And don’t forget to like Ellie And Addie on Facebook or follow me on Instagram!

    I literally just bought that book today!! Too funny! I am so glad you’re feeling better…it took me about 20 weeks with Baby 2 to feel normal again…chasing a toddler is hard work! I was pregnant from September – May and LOVED that I could reuse my maternity clothes from Cam AND that leggings were acceptable every day. :)

    • Too funny! I totally need to read it, I feel like my nesting is already kicking in with this pregnancy! And I’m definitely more tired from chasing Jude than actually being pregnant. Leggings for life… :)

  • Best Book ever! Seriously, a clean house and I had a house cleaner come this week, it’s like Christmas! I feel so less stressed with less stuff! And today was just a bit too cold for me, we gotta easy into it!

    You are just heading into that perfect sweet spot of pregnancy! I hope the exhaustion lifts soon. It can be incredibly debilitating when you have a toddler to keep up with!

    • I can’t believe how quickly it happened, it was like as soon as I hit 12 weeks I could see again! But chasing a toddler adds a whole new aspect to all of pregnancy!
