Weekend Fun + A Giveaway

What a weekend!!

I feel like we were non-stop both days, yet some how my to-do list today is longer than ever! We’ve got a super busy week, but let’s look at a few of the weekend highlights! Oh and make sure to read to the bottom for a fun giveaway! :)


Friday morning Jude got his flu shot so we played it low key and stayed home and played all day and that night. Really late Friday night I saw somewhere (I still can’t figure out where I first saw it) that Hanna Andersson was having a flash sale on pajamas from 10-12 on Saturday, but it was in store only. I called my mom to see if she wanted to head to STL with us, and that way BTR could get some work done in the shop. We successfully got some on-sale holiday pajamas as well as some for in a few months! I also had a gift card left over to Victoria’s Secret from Influenster and they were having a 7 for $27 sale so I was able to get some new underwear!

Jude inhaled his PB&J sandwich and yogurt and was an absolute delight! Maybe we will be having lunch out more often from now on! Weekend Fun and A Giveaway | Ellie And Addie I ran to the grocery store Saturday late afternoon and Jude and BTR played on the swingset since it was so nice outside!

We woke up suuuuper early Sunday morning because we were scheduled to be greeters at church. And Jude did awesome in church and we didn’t even have to take him to the back! After church we ran through Menards so BTR could pick up some wood for a custom order. While BTR was getting what he needed, Jude and I strolled through the Christmas tree section and he immediately spotted the light up Elmo. Not happening dude! Weekend Fun and A Giveaway | Ellie And Addie We worked and played a lot all day Sunday and had a crockpot roast with potatoes and veggies for dinner. And I’m excited for leftovers for lunch today! The most exciting part of the weekend was when on Sunday afternoon BTR had his 3,000th Etsy order!! It’s a little misleading because he has probably sold over 15,000 stands (yes seriously!), but if someone buys multiple items or places a bulk custom order for 200 stands, that is considered one order. He opened his shop three years ago (11/17/2012) and I am so proud of how far he has come! Happy Anniversary BTR! Weekend Fun and A Giveaway | Ellie And Addie This week is already off to a crazy start. I’m starting to get that overwhelming feeling and I know I need to slow down or I’m going to over do it. I have a habit of saying yes to everything and then regretting it, so today I actually said no to something. Hopefully I can remember that through the rest of the busy season!

Happy Monday Friends!

    I didn’t get the Hanna Anderson memo until it was too late. GAH! I might have to bite the bullet and just buy some full price. Merry Christmas, kids!
    Woohoo BTR! Congrats on the sales – that’s awesome!
    And fabulous giveaway! A solo trip to Target – Red Cup in hand – sounds like a very Merry Christmas, to me! :)

    • I was just planning on buying full price HA holiday pajamas but when I saw the sale I ran!

  • Jessica

    Omg! I’m so jealous about the pajamas. We don’t have a store around here or I would have gone. I want matching jammies for the kids so badly. I found some cute Carters ones that will work alright, but they are no Hanna Anderson. Sounds like a fun weekend!!

    • Honestly I think 99% of Jude’s pajamas are Carter’s that I bought at Sam’s Club! I really like putting him in sleepers with feet. But we got a pair of HA last year for Christmas and they were soooo cute so I really wanted another pair for this year!

  • Ha! Put food in front of my 16 month old and she is as happy as can be! Im almost thankful there isnt any Hanna Stores near me, Id be in serious trouble with the hubby ;)

    • We only have one and it isn’t super close, which is probably a good thing for my wallet!

  • chall1018

    Sounds like a good weekend! We don’t have a Hanna Anderson store anywhere near us. Boo! But, I kind of agree with Whitney…I might be in major trouble if there were one near me!

    • We don’t have many HA pajamas, but they are sooo soft so I will definitely keep stalking the sales. I’ve gotten a few pieces on Zulily before too!
