Weekend Fun + A Roadtrip

What a busy weekend we had! We left last Thursday afternoon with Brandon’s little brother to drive to Cincinnati to visit Brandon’s dad, stepmom, and little sisters and brother to celebrate his dad’s birthday!

Thankfully Jude did AWESOME in the car and only got upset a few times. He slept the majority of the way and then I put an episode of Sesame Street on the iPad and he actually watched it! This was the first time he’s ever shown any interest in watching something, probably because he was strapped down and couldn’t get away

We got in late Thursday night and went straight to bed, but were up bright … read more

And as a bonus flip flops were only $1, so I totally grabbed two new pairs! Side note: I have now bought four black maxi dresses in a two day period. I want to wear one … read more

Hey everyone! I’m so excited it’s Friday, aren’t you?

It’s been raining like crazy this week so we went to the Magic House yesterday because we just could not stay inside any longer. We don’t always make it to the third floor of the Magic House but this trip we did. So I just had to hold Jude and try the static ball. And with his crazy hair it turned out hilarious. I think it’s time to schedule his first hair cut!

BTR and I are always discussing our Instagram feeds, and likes, and who we each follow. I always give him a hard time (jokingly!!) if he … read more
