Time for Friday Favorites!!!

Friday Favorites | Ellie And Addie

Yes I wish I was eating a chicken biscuit again this morning. However it is Frosted Friday at CFA so we might just get a treat this afternoon! :)

One.
I’m a complete goof (totally blaming #pregnancybrain) and forgot to share that I’m hosting a really fun link up starting on Monday for Opening Day of Baseball Season! I’m hosting with a bunch of my favorite bloggers and the link up is from April 4 through April 10. And you can also share your photos on Instagram using the tag #hoorayitsopeningday. I fully expect to see LOTS of little Cardinals fans! While the Cardinals Home Opener (a national holiday in STL) isn’t until April 11, we are definitely still celebrating the start of baseball season around here!

Thanks for all the love on my two posts this week AND two giveaways! I had so much fun writing about how to prep for a garden and apparently you all loved it too! Keep sending me your questions, I’m having so much fun talking to everyone about it! And don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win one of four prizes!

Three.
I hit 38 weeks yesterday and my nesting has hit in full force. I actually have to finish up our business taxes today (they are never ending!!), but then it’s back to washing newborn clothes and organizing! We finally made the decision to move Jude to a new room, but it won’t be ready for a while since BTR still has to build a bed and a bookshelf (and I’m so excited about both designs!!), but that doesn’t really matter because baby boy #2 will sleep in our room for a while anyway. I’ve ordered almost everything we need and I can’t wait to start putting it all together!

Four.
So Jude arrived at 39 weeks exactly. So I’m basically preparing for this babe to arrive any day. I’ve been having small contractions for a while now (I didn’t even realize it till the doctor felt one at my appointment this week), but nothing major or time-able, or that painful.

Jude’s birthday is next Thursday! How will be already be TWO? Basically I just want to get past next Thursday and then I’m fine with this baby arriving. Of course we all know BTR and I really want him to arrive on April 11! :) There may also be a few other Cardinals fans hoping for the same thing!

Five.
Also, just an update, WE PICKED A NAME! No I will not be sharing it, that’s our last little secret! But I’m so excited about it and I absolutely love it. And because we picked a name I was finally able to order a coming home outfit because I wanted it monogrammed. It’s the small things at this point. Or I guess picking a name is a big thing? Whatever, I’m excited!


Happy Friday friends! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

    Out of all of that is it bad I’m most excited that you picked a name? :) YAY!! I can’t wait to hear what it is and that baby boy is here. Fingers crossed he waits until after Jude’s birthday. Have a great weekend.

    Picking a name… Huge deal! And I love Jude, so I’m excited to hear what you will name another boy! And I’m glad you are getting so much love for your gardening post… I know it was one of my faves of the bunch!!!

  • You Cardinals fans forgetting about the link-up….. Geesh! ;) Yay for picking a name! That always makes it extra exciting (and real!). I can’t wait to hear it–you’ll be in my thoughts these next few weeks!!

    • We’re obviously a mess over here in STL! Don’t worry I’m ready to snap some pictures of Jude all dressed up to post on Monday though!!!

  • Sara McCarty

    You have a name?!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!! Doesn’t that feel amazing to have that finalized and checked off the list?

  • oooh home stretch!!! Wishing you all the best!

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    I can’t wait to see everyone all decked out in the MLB gear on Monday!! We are super excited!!
    Can you come and plant a garden for me? I have the blackest of thumbs.
    And YAY for names!!! I cannot wait to find out what you’ve decided!

    • I would love to come plant a garden for you, especially if it means a trip to CA! And I’m so excited to see everyone’s posts on Monday too!

  • The Cardinals home opener is a national holiday?!?! Dude, you are SO lucky!!! Now baby boy #2 HAS to come on April 11th! I mean, birthday and holiday AND home opener? Best day ever.

    • Okay I should clarify :) it’s not a real national holiday, but St. Louis certainly treats it like one because literally no one goes to work and I skipped school a lot when I was younger for it! Plus having a baby on opening day makes it even more fun, so hopefully we can make that happen again! :)

  • I was in St Louis a few weeks ago and I have to say, I love your city!! Best of luck with the new baby :) I hope he arrives on opening day for you!

    • Yay, I’m so glad you liked STL! We really do love it here! And thanks, i’m really hoping he comes then too! :)
