Friday Favorites

How is October already over? And how is Christmas almost here? I will say, I am READY to turn on the Christmas music starting Sunday!

Remember those Halloween pajamas I just HAD to have for Jude (and yes are three sizes to big). Well he still hasn’t worn them. I’m hoping to snap a picture tonight, but let’s be honest, I’ll probably forget again.

I’m so proud of my sorority (Kappa Delta) chapter at SLU. They are holding their third annual Kuts for KCΔnfidence on December 6th and have already started fundraising for the event. They started the event in 2013 after two chapter members were diagnosed with … read more


And here’s what we’ve been up to!

Wiping – all the noses. Jude has had a super runny nose the past couple of days. He isn’t stuffy, just super runny. It’s clear so I don’t think he’s really sick. But it’s gross either way! Oh and one of the many perks of pregnancy for me is bloody noses at the most random times. Just ask my MOPS friends…

Wishing – we could go back to the Magic House, again! We had a lot of fun at the member’s Halloween party (with donuts!) on Monday and it was so much fun dressing Jude up in his costume! I’m really hoping … read more

Weekend Fun

So the theme of this weekend was work, work, work! And I have a feeling every weekend till Christmas is going to look very similar!

Weekend Fun | Ellie And Addie

We started off by going to the Magic House on Friday morning to meet one of my best friends from college and her son who is six months older than Jude for a play day!

Saturday I worked ALL day while BTR and Jude hung out. And during Jude’s nap BTR did some woodworking for his shop.

Sunday morning I did make cinnamon rolls for breakfast and BTR made the most delicious crockpot meal of sausage, sauerkraut, and potatoes. So simple and seriously good!… read more


Loving – the photos my mom sends me of Jude when he is at her house. This weekend when she watched him he sat in this little chair that used to be mine as a kid. I just love it!

Finished reading – another book! This time I read One Plus One by Jojo Moyes and I thought it was pretty cute! Again, another easy read, but sometimes those are the best. I also finally broke down and bought The Magic of Tidying Up. I just started it but I’m loving it so far! I asked BTR if he would read it and he even said maybe…

Annoyed – … read more

Halloween Costumes of the Past

A little late to the party, but I thought it would be fun to link up with Andrea and share some pictures of old Halloween costumes!

The oldest picture I could find was from 2006, so Brandon and I were seniors in college. I’m not really sure what BTR was, but I was the Cardinals fairy because the Cardinals were in the World Series or had just won the World Series, I can’t really remember the specifics. Notice the bird on my “fairy wand” aka wiffle ball bat.

Halloween Costumes of the Past

In 2007 we had moved to Chicago and went on this AMAZING haunted bar tour that took us all over the city. … read more
