Day In The Life – July 2017

Hi Friends! Welcome to my July 2017 day in the life! I’m so excited to share our day with you all and even more excited to be hosting the round up this time for Julia while she gets all the newborn snuggles! Make sure to check back on Wednesday, July 26 for everyone’s posts!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

This is probably going to be the least “exciting” day in the life I’ve ever done. We had a very chill day at home, but it was our wedding anniversary!

Monday, July 17, 2017
Brandon – 32 years old
Liz – 31 years old
Jude – 3 years and 3 months
Ezra – 1 year and 3 months
Ellie – 10 years old
Addie – 6 years old

Brandon and I were married 7 years ago this day!

8:00 am – EVERYONE SLEPT TILL 8 AND I DO A HAPPY DANCE. Take a screenshot of my phone (and I realize as I’m putting this post together that I still have a June calendar background, oops).

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Jude comes into our room and BTR gets up and goes to get Ezra.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

They all come say hi to me and I get out of bed and wash my face. They head to the kitchen to give Ezra some breakfast and milk for Jude. I make our bed and Ellie jumps up.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Head to the living room and the boys are watching a show on the couch with Cheerios.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR says my mom texted him to check our front porch. Jude and I got to the front door and find a surprise! It’s from both of our mom’s and it’s copper moscow mule mugs and the ingredients to make them!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Ezra eats a banana and Jude helps me feed Addie

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

We get the boys changed and ready to go on an adventure! I pack our bags and waters.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

While BTR gets the boys shoes on I, head to change clothes and put on my rings. Still love them today. :)

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

8:50 am – Get everyone and everything packed in the car and head out!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Open my phone for the first time and check my email inbox.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And AddieArrive at our first location, Krispy Kreme for donuts! I run in and leave the boys in the car!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Hop back in the car and give Jude his donut holes. He is excited!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Head across town to a new coffee shop in Belleville, Balance Coffee and Tea.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Take both boys in and BTR and I both order iced coffees. Today for the first time I noticed they have a little kids area with a huge chalkboard wall! We will definitely be back for this!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Grab our drinks and head outside and snap a quick picture of the boys.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Load up the car and head to a nearby park!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

The playground is shaped like a pirate ship and it is so cool!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Both boys play like crazy but it starts to get warm so we load them back up and head out.

We decide to drive around a little bit and drive through another park on the way home. It looks like it has a fun playground so we will have to come back to it another day when it isn’t so hot!

10:49 am – Arrive back at home.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Our hydrangea tree is blooming and it’s so pretty!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Decide to give the boys baths because Ezra has a doctor check up later. Throw in a color to make it more fun!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Both boys splash and splash and while BTR watches them I put E’s laundry away.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Get both boys out of the bath and feed Ezra lunch before his nap.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR takes Ezra after he eats to lay him down for his nap. But first a kiss for mama.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Clean up Ezra’s lunch and Addie helps me out with the leftovers.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Finish the dishes from this morning and admire the zucchini BTR picked from the garden. Need to come up with a recipe!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Talk to Alexa and have the new Amazon Dot [affiliate link] play my music. It’s pretty much my new favorite thing EVER. We bought two on Prime Day and I’m wishing we had a million of them now.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR sprays some tumblers in the garage to take to laser in the basement.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR takes the tumblers to the basement to laser and Jude heads down with him to play in the toy room/warehouse/gym/shipping emporium. :)

I get on my big computer in the kitchen and start some projects. Check emails, reply to comments, schedule tweets

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR comes up from working on the laser and I make lunch for me, him, and Jude. Cheese roll ups and chips!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR heads in to wake up Ezra from his nap because he has his 15 month check up and shots. Normally I would just let him sleep as long as he can!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR takes E to the doctor and Jude and I stay home. I tell Jude I need five more minutes on my computer and then I can play with him. He does awesome and then eventually brings his cars to me.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I plug in the tablets. We totally need a new charging station setup, BTR get on it! :)

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I get out Jude’s gears toys and we get to work building!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I get a selfie from BTR at the doctor. E took his shots like a champ and is healthy! They run to the grocery store.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Jude and I are still building!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Jude starts to get bored with the gears so we pack them up and he starts playing with his Hot Wheels garage. I wash the tumblers BTR just made on the laser. We cover them in a marking material that reacts when the laser hits them to make a permanent mark on them.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR sends me a pic of E at the store and he’s a ham.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Jude and I send a selfie to BTR.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

The mailman delivers our mail and there’s a package! It’s my first order from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I also get a box from Influenster, a bunch of lip liner and lipsticks. Somehow I’ve been pegged as a beauty blogger in their system and I get the weirdest boxes.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Open the Nordstrom box, it’s my favorite pair of high waisted leggings by Zella. I totally needed a new pair!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

5:00 pm – BTR and Ezra arrive home and we decide to make some cocktails, because hey, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere (here). He makes me a mojito because I’m obsessed with them lately. He makes a bourbon drink.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR grinds some coffee beans to make a new batch of cold brew.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Start making a hodge podge of dinner for the boys. Jude eats while standing on his kitchen helper and E is in his high chair. It’s a kitchen counter party tonight.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR cuts cheese and apples into letters for Jude and he thinks it is the coolest thing ever. Which means he eats it!

 

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

While the boys eat we start to prep for our dinner. Guacamole to eat now and a dip to put on our tacos later.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I hang out with Jude in the kitchen while BTR puts Ezra down for bed. When he comes back the three of us head outside to cut some flowers from our garden!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Time for Jude to go to bed, first he gets a vitamin.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

While BTR reads Jude a story, I go and water the rest of the garden. Lots of stuff growing and we finally have some tomatoes!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR comes back from Jude going to sleep and turns on the grill to cook our shrimp for tacos. I finish the cilantro lime rice I started earlier.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

We sit down for dinner on the back patio. Snap a selfie because it might be the only pic of the two of us today and it’s our anniversary!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Come inside after dinner to clean up. UPS just delivered a box, it’s one of my Prime Day orders, a toy for the boys for Christmas!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I head to our bathroom to wash my face and almost have a heart attack, Jude must have left his room and is in our bed completely passed out! BTR returns him to his own bed.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR opens a Side Project beer for us to drink to celebrate our anniversary and we sit down to watch the season premiere of Game of Thrones because we taped it the night before.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

We finish GoT and turn on Netflix to watch a documentary about a guy that was selling fake wine in auctions. It was super interesting and was fun to see how wine works compared to beer.

Halfway through we decide we will finish the show the next night and head to bed because it’s so late.

Check my Activity on my watch and then plug it in next to my bed.

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

11:54 pm – Take one last screenshot and go to bed!

Day In The Life – July 2017 | Ellie And Addie

    I did my DITL post on my anniversary too! Your boys are just to die for! My daughter is 20 months, so seeing E just makes me think of by baby and how time is passing by too quickly. And those tacos look amazing!

    • Happy Anniversary to you too! They seriously get so big so fast, I feel like Ezra was born yesterday and I blinked and now he’s 1!!!

  • Laura Freeman
