Friday Favorites

Friday Favorites, let’s do this!

One.
Poor BTR. He built this AMAZING BED for Jude and now all these places are sharing it and I’m getting all the credit. Oops, #sorrynotsorry But seriously, it is so fun seeing Lorena Canals Rugs and Project Nursery and Jen Woodhouse share the photo of the bed! And because I never shared these before, here’s some behind the scenes shots of BTR actually building the bed!

Ezra found his toes recently. And he’s OBSESSED with them. We were sent these foot finders from Lamaze to try out and he loves them! They would also be a great addition to a baby shower gift!

Brandon and I both graduation from Saint Louis University in 2007 and we have always been big Billiken fans. Until they changed the entire way he looks and now I’m terrified of him. Twitter was not amused with the change either, but I will say the new SLU President is pretty hilarious on his personal twitter account.

Four.
I was so excited to be sent the newest PopSugar #MustHaveBox to try out! I’m not sure I’m a hat person (besides STLCards hats) but maybe you’ll see me sporting this one sometime this fall! I’m really excited to try out that hair mask though! You can save $5 off your first Must Have Box using the code SHOP5 here.

Five.
In a strange turn of events, Jude is no longer using a pacifier. Let me repeat that, NO MORE PACIFIER FOR JUDE!! Yeah, pretty exciting news around here! And how did it happen? One day I asked him to throw it away because it was broken (he loves putting things in the trash can) and he did it. Then that night at bedtime when he asked for it I reminded him he threw it away and he was like oh yeah, no big deal. He’s asked for it once or twice since then but I remind him he threw it away and he’s like oh yeah, and goes to sleep. #momWIN

And here’s a cute photo of the boys just because!

    The bed he made is so amazing! I’d say that even though you are getting the credit he still knows the awesome thing he did for Jude. :) Ezra’s foot photo is adorable! Love the last photo of the boys too. Jude’s hair is so cute in it.

    • Seriously, BTR did awesome with that bed! And omygoodness does Jude need a haircut right soon, he wakes up with the craziest bed head!

  • Erin G

    I can’t believe the SLU president is so active on social media! And so funny! What a great way to connect with students and alumni!

    Also, how jealous am I that Jude gave up his pacifier without a fight? That is awesome. G would likely have me digging through disgusting trash at 3 in the morning to find his. Ha!

    • I had no idea the SLU president was on Twitter until the whole Billken drama this week! And I should have clarified, I totally dig that pacifier out of the trash (it was our last one) and hid it just in case we had a major meltdown and needed it! So it’s currently hidden in a kitchen cabinet! ;)

  • That bed amazes me. We can’t do anything with our hands like you and BTR can. Color me impressed.

  • Chrissy

    Wow, that pacifier trick seems to good to be true! Amazing!

    • I’m kind of still in shock it was that easy!!! Now if only potty training could be that quick!

  • Meghan Flinn

    Well that was an easy pacifier transition! Isn’t it great when something you expect to be the worst is actually easy! I felt that way with potty training… I was dreading it in the worst way and it ended up being kind of easy! And I still love that bed and I was so excited when I saw it on project nursery! Your husband sure is talented!!!

    • I honestly can’t believe we got rid of it that easy. I’m totally praying potty training is the same some day!!!

  • The Average Momma

    Idk if I’m more jealous of the bed, or the fact that you have a husband that can do all of that! Haha! Great family. :-)

    • The bed is my favorite thing ever! Now if only he would work on the rest of my to do list… :)
