Friday favorites

Linking up with Shea over at Mix and Match Momma, Erika, and Narci today to share my Friday favorites.


ONE. Nordstrom's Half Yearly sale. If you are on IG there's no way you haven't heard that it's time for Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale. I am trying to revamp my closet. I officially packed away all my maternity clothes for the last time (insert all the tears and emotions). While doing that I also got rid of 2 trash bags full of clothes and I have tons more to go. I've decided I need to invest in less nice pieces over tons of semi-decent ones.  A capsule like wardrobe but with a little more;) Here are a few of my favorite Nordstrom sale finds. 

TWO. Aloyoga-these pants. I've been swooning over them for months. I'm hoping to be cleared to begin working out next week and can't wait to get back in the gym. I only make it 1-3 times a week but exercise has always been my natural serotonin surge. I love it! The hubs joined The Cowboy Fit club several weeks ago without really discussing with me but I think I'm going to love it. Maybe I'll even get to see some players;) Can't wait to get in there soon!

THREE. Maternity leave...thank you lord for maternity leave. I am mourning that I only have about 6 weeks left but I have loved and am savoring every minute with my precious babies. I was driving to Addilyn's ear appointment yesterday, sun was shining, I was listening to Simple Gospel and couldn't help but just feel SO thankful and blessed!! At the same time I am so thankful for a job I love and feel blessed and honored to get to do, one that I don't have to dread going back to. 

FOUR. Project Nursery. Addilyn's nursery is currently up on Project nursery. Go give it a like, we'd love that:) It was such a fun labor of love!!

FIVE. Memorial Day weekend. We are ready for some sun and pool time this weekend!! Bring on the red, white, and blue while we honor those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom! Stocking up on all the cutest floats!!

Weekend friends!

Floral nursery

As soon as I found out our last little one, our little caboose was a girl I knew I wanted her nursery to be floral, bold and very girlie. I had been dreaming of a floral wallpaper nursery and couldn't wait to see it come together. I wanted a gold crib and when the one I wanted from Pottery Barn was no longer available I employed my sweet husband to paint our once blue Jenny Lind crib. I love the way it turned out. I wanted a mix of vintage and antique and love the way the antique dresser turned out. I wanted to find one in its original state and was so excited when my mom found this one at a local antique store. Pulling in the antique stroller from Isabella's room was the perfect addition above her beautiful sign from House of Belonging. The room was so big it took me a while to feel like it was complete and I think I may still add in a few details here and there but I am absolutely loving it:)

One month-Addilyn

Oh my sweet Addilyn, Addi Jo, Addi Winnie (as Isabella sings to you), you are loved and adored far more than you will ever know. I knew I needed you but didn't realize quite how much my heart and your family needed you! You are the perfect caboose to our little family of 5. Your siblings absolutely adore you and you are so easy going and let them hug on you, hold you and kiss all over you. You have the sweetest personality and truly go with the flow. You have been the biggest blessing.

Your entrance into the world was so fast that you had some pretty significant bruising on your face. The bruising caused you to be pretty jaundice so we did bilirubin lights at home for 3 days. I am thankful the pediatrician let us do it at home and din't make us go into the hospital to do it. You slept great in the lights and I have a new appreciation for parents who have to deal with equipment and doctors visits. Between bilirubin lights, blood draws, doctors appointment our first two weeks at home were busy, busy, busy.

The helix or outer rims of your ears didn't fully develop into the normal shape so you had to wear some funky ear wells for 2 weeks and we are now taping them. You did great with them, they were cumbersome but not painful!! Your ears already look so much better:) I think you will appreciate it when you are a teenager! SO thankful to work for the doctors who invented the ear wells and for experts that put them on:)

You have by far been our busiest medical baby though all very small things which I am so thankful for but nonetheless you have kept us busy. You have very severe reflux with some laryngomalacia causing us some very sleepless nights worried about you. You will make an awful sound like you are trying to catch your breath when you reflux. We have officially started Zantac and it seems to be helping some, crossing our fingers it makes it all better so we don't have to visit an ENT. Even with all of this you are the sweetest, most content baby. You will cry when you reflux but then quickly settle, thank goodness.

We aren't sleeping great. You still like to nurse every 2-3 hours. You have given me the occasional 4 hour stretch but its often followed by every hour feedings. We have you sleeping on an incline to help with your reflux. You are loving the pacifier most of the time and I am thankful for that. It helps with reflux so I will keep encouraging it:)

You prefer and love to be held...and I will not complain. I am soaking in and savoring every minute with you. You are gaining weight better than your siblings did. You are already up to 8 lbs and I may have cried. I need you to slow down....

You are our last baby and I am wanting to slow down every moment and really enjoy each step.

We are truly blessed by you our little Addi Jo!! We love you!!
