Day In The Life – October 2017

Hi Friends! Get ready for lots of pictures and not a lot of text. Because well, I forgot to actually write my Day In The Life until a week and a half later and I’m trying to remember everything based on pictures. :) And don’t forget to stop by on Wednesday (that’s tomorrow) to see the entire roundup for this quarter’s Day In The Life!


Thursday, October 12, 2017
Brandon – 32 years old
Liz – 31 years old
Jude – 3 years and 6 months
Ezra – 1 year and 5 months
Ellie – 10 years old
Addie – 7 years old

6:30 am – My alarm goes off and I hit snooze. Do. Not. Want. To. Get. Up.

Get up, wash my face and do my hair. Take a selfie. Note, clean the bedroom mirror

Head into Jude’s room to start getting him awake, it’s a school day!

He’s not happy I’m shoving my camera in his face. I take him to the couch to watch a show (probably Curious George) and give him his breakfast.

Head back to Ezra’s room to get him up, but he’s already awake! Strip him down because he’s a mess at breakfast and I just let him eat in a diaper.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Put him in his high chair for his breakfast.

While the boys are eating with BTR I head back to their rooms and get their clothes out for the day since I didn’t do it the night before.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Head back to the kitchen and eat my breakfast, a pop tart. So grown up. BTR leaves for work and the boys wave out Ezra’s window, it’s pretty much the cutest thing in the world.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Time to get the boys dressed. They love to help with their socks. Which isn’t helpful. :)

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Brush Jude’s hair.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Head out the door to get in the car and head to school! But first, a quick selfie on the front porch.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Drive to school and Jude pouts because I won’t carry his backpack in.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Successful drop off and E and I head out for some quick errands to get gas and the bank drive-thru.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Arrive at Chick-fil-A for story time! E is clearly excited for it, check out that cheese!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I order an iced coffee (my absolutely fave) and then we play a little before the story. E sits down for the story with the other kids and he looks so tiny and adorable.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

After the story, we attempt the craft. Except I’m not feeling the glue and just give him a crayon. We’re still working on our artwork posing also.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

After we have our snack at CFA we head to Sam’s to pick up a few groceries. And they already have out Christmas decorations!!!!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

And for the record, Sam’s has the best prices and selections for kids books! I totally grabbed the new Jimmy Fallon book, Everything Is Mama for the boys!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

After paying for our groceries it’s time to pick up Jude from school!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Head home with the boys and get ready for lunch. But first a visit to the monsters in our bushes. My latest DIY project!!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I’m an awesome mom and I turn on the TV to get both boys to focus and actually eat their lunch. Judge away.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I get my lunch prepped, which today is a frozen meal! And the XL iced tea I redeemed from my Cow Calendar treat at CFA earlier.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Ask Alexa to play my Pandora station and all is right in the [my kitchen] world.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

E finishes his lunch and I clean him up to get ready for his nap! First kisses for Jude. And Jude’s Ellie and Addie of course.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Take E to his room for his nap and come back to the kitchen for my lunch and then I wash dishes.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

After lunch I get Jude settled with some toys and then I head to my computer to get a few things done on the blog and I update my media kit to send to a company I’m working with!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Debate between which picture to upload to Instagram. Finally, settle on which one and I post it. Today’s published post was a Halloween book roundup!

Step away from the computer and start a craft project with Jude! I’ve been saving our empty gallons of milk for a month and I hope he’s as excited as me for this!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

We have fun crafting and they actually look super cute! I’m going to put glow sticks in them at night to make them light up!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

The doorbell rings and it’s the mailman! Got some fun packages from Old Navy and Amazon! I finally ordered a second snack tray for our stroller, and I got it from the Amazon Warehouse so it was cheaper!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I check the monitor and E is awake from his nap. And he’s in a good mood!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

AND this is where my documenting starts to go downhill….. I have a few pictures so it is what it is!

There may have been a potty accident and I had to wash Jude’s rug. But I’m thankful it was on his washable rug and not the carpet!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

BTR comes home and the boys are wild as always while we make dinner.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Ezra goes to bed super happy!!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Jude is not thrilled with my new Halloween decorations in his room. Spoiler, he got over it in a day and loves them now.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

At some point in the evening, I hit my move goal! And yes that’s a beer on my desk.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Do more dishes, because that’s never-ending.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

I have zero idea what we ate for dinner that night, but I did have a snack of Oreos while watching football with BTR on the couch!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

And I snapped these pics of the pups because I didn’t want to forget them in the DITL. But you know who I don’t have a single picture of this time? Brandon. Not a single one. #fail.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

Wash my face before bed.

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie

And time for sleep!

Day In The Life – October 2017 | Ellie And Addie


Done! Definitely not my best roundup, but I’m so glad I did it to look back on! Thanks again for following along friends!

    Love your crafting ideas – those bushes and the milk jugs are great ideas. Also curious about Alexa – was it hard to program? Wondering if I could live without it or if it’s one of those things that you get and realize how awesome it is to have.

    Those milk carton ghosts are adorable! And no judging here. The TV always has to be on as a distraction for Olivia so I can clean the kitchen for breakfast and lunch.
