Weekend Fun

I was looking at my post last year for this weekend, and it’s amazing how much is the same! :)

Friday night we decided to use a gift card we were given for Texas Roadhouse. Jude did awesome at dinner and the food was delicious!

Instead of going straight home we decided to head to the park to run around a bit before bedtime. Weekend Fun | Ellie And Addie

Saturday morning Jude slept in and I worked a bit while BTR headed up to our church to help set up for Oktoberfest! He was in charge of helping build the stage for the band. Thankfully it held! :)

Happy Friday Friends!

THANK YOU to everyone who has sent notes and messages about our announcement for Baby Rotz #2! We are so excited!

Jude has this sudden attachment to Addie and I love it. Every time I turn around he’s either hugging her or trying to sit on her. And she is so sweet with him.

Remember when I told you about the new thermometer I ordered? Well the deadline to order one is coming up (in 7 days!) and I wanted to remind you to order yours! I can’t wait to get mine!

We did not do anything this week. I’ll admit I’ve … read more

I’m pregnant with Baby Rotz #2!

So I thought I would just go through everything here and put it all in one place!

How far along are you/When is the due date?
Funny you should ask, it’s April 14, 2016, so I’m exactly 11 weeks today. And why is that funny? Because April 14 was Jude’s due date! Jude came exactly at 39 weeks, on April 7, 2014. But the timing with this one is just hilarious to me and I almost fell off the exam table when the … read more


I missed the weekend recap so I’m just going to throw it into my currently post this week!

Dreaming – of eating all the potato pancakes and nachos. Yes I had pulled pork nachos at Oktoberfest this weekend, but they were amazing! And Jude dominated the potato pancakes and would not share. We saw lots of friends while walking around and visited a few of our favorite shops, it was so much fun! And now I’m ready for our church’s Oktoberfest this weekend!

Loving – on our new Goddaughter! On Saturday we headed over to STL to celebrate the baptism of our best friend’s little girl. And Brandon and I … read more

Happy Friday! It has been a long week and I’m so excited for the weekend! Let’s get right down to it!

We went to story time in the park this week and played on the playground afterwards. Jude had lots of fun climbing, swinging, and sliding.

And the best part was we won a book at story time! The wonderful mama who hosts story time always passes out attendance tickets to all the kids and then gives away a book at the end. She also runs an awesome blog, Growing Book By Book.

Have you heard of Kinsa yet? It’s this amazing new smart thermometer that also … read more
