Friday Favorites



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


Hallelujah it is Friday. Wrapping up a few of my favorites this week. 

ONE. Room decor-I've got room redecorating and nursery plans on my mind. I have SO much to do for the nursery and still need to complete final details on the kiddos big kid rooms so I've got decorating overload going on. I have said it before but I am still obsessed with the Pillowfort for Target line. I want and love it all:)

This cute little white shelf may be making its way into Addilyn's room. I love it to display and organize things:)



I added this Swan decor to Isabella's wall and it is TOO precious! I love it! She is obsessed with all things gold, pink and sparkly these days.

TWO. Easter gifts and big sibling gifts- I'm currently on the hunt for Easter basket gifts and big sibling gifts. I know I have time but I'm a planner and with a to do list like mine I like to stay ahead of the game! 

I always love throwing in some sort of doll in the kiddos baskets. I'm loving this adorable ballerina or the Cuddle and kind dolls. 


Cuddle and Kind-I'm obsessed with this small shop, not only for their adorable dolls but for their mission. For every doll sold they donate 10 meals to children and need and each doll is handcrafted by women artisans in Peru providing them with fair trade income. Win, win for sure!


This adorable doll diaper bag and Moses basket are perfect Big sister gifts for Isabella. I think since Addilyn will have a Moses basket this doll one is perfect for my little momma Isabella!



THREE. Summer shoes-Thanks to this crazy Texas weather I am dreaming of summer and are in need of some warm weather appropriate shoes now. I am a HUGE fan of Natives-they are a must for every kid in the summer, they breath, are water proof and so easy to slip on and off. I've been a huge fan of Mini Melissa since Isabella was young and are definitely our go to shoe:) She loves having shoes like mommy so I'm loving these flip flops. I wear my Tory Burch slip ons on the regular so may need a new pair this summer and most definitely need an open toed warmer weather wedge. 




FOUR. This is Us....I just can't get enough. The last two, OMG, so good! If you aren't watching you must and should!!


FIVE. It's Friday...that's all I've got and I need ha!


Hoping for some relaxation and beautiful weather this weekend!

Bumpdates 25-30 weels

Gosh these aren't my greatest photos but document I have! I cannot believe I am 30 weeks and have hit almost the single digits in weeks left until sweet Addilyn arrives. I am achy and tired most days but savoring and loving every last minute of this pregnancy! Sweet baby kicks (or more like karate kicks) are what I live for!





How far along: 30 weeks

Baby's size: Size of a large cabbage

Developing this week: Weighing in at about 3 pounds. Sweet Addilyn's brain is growing. Bone marrow is taking over and making RBCs. This whole process is an amazing miracle. 

Sleep:  Has still mostly evaded me. Frequent bathroom breaks make sleeping hard. I am still struggling with insomnia that isn't my friend. I will say nights I stay up late I do sleep better but some nights by 8 pm I'm faded ha!

Maternity Clothes: Yes! Ordered a few new cute dresses for my sister's upcoming wedding festivities:) Hope I love them!

Food cravings: Chocolate chip cookies, plain milk chocolate, any and all fruit, baked sweet potatoes, chicken

Food aversions: Still not loving Mexican food. I love me some queso but other than that I could take it or leave it!

Symptoms I have: Horrible, horrible right lower quadrant pain that throbs just standing. Lifting my own leg is SO painful. Occasional days of nausea with reflux have started-bring on the Tums. Other than that I'm feeling pretty good besides being tired;)

Doctor’s Appointment:  I failed my glucose test so had to do the 3 hour last week. Ugh so bad, thankfully I got distracted 1/2 way through having to pick up Isabella from school so it helped me ignore the awful jittery shakes and nausea a little bit! Thankfully I passed. Officially going every 2 weeks:)

Movement: SO much!! My absolute favorite. Pretty active little girl on our hands still:)

Belly Button: outie all the way-it's been out forever,  thanks umbilical hernia and split abs

Gender: Sweet girl

Best moment of the week: Passing my 3 hour glucose test, yay for no gestational diabetes!

What I’m looking forward to: Finishing up the nursery. Hopefully another sonogram soon!

Cayson 30 month

Oh my sweet baby Cayson, how are you 2 1/2 years old already. I sound like a broken record but I'm in shock, time has flown way too fast!! You are the sweetest thing, the busiest thing and 1000% boy! I adore  you and all your boyness, ha;)You are wild, you are sweet, you are cuddly, you are so lovable!! 

Personality: 
You are very outgoing but also very timid. If sissy is around you are all over whatever she is doing, you are her biggest fan. You adore her, follow her around and copy everything she does. You guys are so adorable when you play well together but are exhausting when you fight! You are equally sensitive and outgoing. You don't like to get in trouble just like your sister, you hate time outs and quickly come for cuddles. You are always ALL over the place, kicking things down, throwing things, climbing-that 1000% boy part;) You are my biggest cuddler though and I hope it never changes. 

Talking:
Oh Cayson you are talking SO, SO much all of a sudden. I swear one week you woke up and I couldn't believe it. I understand probably 75% of what you say but you are nonstop talking these days. My favorites right now that I hope to get on video are, "mommy, where are you?"-when I'm usually in my room and you can't find me. "I already did"-when I ask you to do something that you've done already. "Pray, pray, pray, pray, pray"-you always say it five times at bedtime as you wait for me and sissy to hold your hands. You then nod with the cutest over bite as Isabella or I pray!-It's my favorite! "I wuv you""I hold it"-how you negotiate when I say you can't eat candy, you just want to hold it, ha! I  need to get more of your sweet little voice on camera because it changes all too quickly:(

Eating:
You are a great eater. You LOVE broccoli, any fruit, cheese, milk, and above all else you LOVE tweats. You are my sweets lover. You love chocolate, really any candy you lay your eyes on. You are a snacker like your sister but eat at least 2 really good meals for me. You have to eat before you get your treats and this usually works;) You aren't a huge thing but you have an appetite and will probably be tall and skinny like your daddy was. You drink milk but don't chug it, neither you or your sister ever really have. You love just about anything-coffee, hot tea, juice, chocolate milk, sparkling water-which is the complete opposite of your sister. I let you taste things thinking you would dislike them like your sister but nope!

Sleep:
We are finally getting rewarded for all the sleep you did not do for so long. Over the last 6 months you were not only transitioned to a toddler bed but now to a queen bed. You absolutely love your queen bed and you and sister have jump parties before bed every night. You nap usually 1-3ish and sleep 7:30-8. You can take over an hour to fall asleep some nights but are completely content playing and entertaining yourself until you fall asleep. For bed you have to have 2 Shopkins, your fox and 2 bowties-yep 2 bowties. Who knows, you are currently obsessed with your bowties;) We brush teeth, we read books, we pray, pray, pray, pray, pray and then we tickle your back. You insist sissy and I both tickle your back and must then kiss you on your wips. If we miss you lips and catch a cheek you cry until we appropriately nail it on the lips! It's quite adorable!

Favorites:
You are currently addicted to Shopkins-you ask for them all the time and we have to pray for more every night, ha! You love iPad time and playing games on mommy's phone. You mostly watch Youtube kid videos and are so good at matching games. You love to cuddle, you like to sit in my lap and read books or play on your iPad. You always want to help me cook and will pull up a chair to help me. You love to grab you and sister's vitamins and hand hers out:) You love to climb and jump and throw things. You really are so much boy!! I adore it! You love to get your haircut and I think its because you get a sucker;) You are loving school these days and are so cute carrying in your own backpack and holding sister's hand. 

Potty training:
You are officially potty trained. You were ready probably 6 months months before I finally had the time and took the plunge, but this worked in my favor for sure! You were sick several weeks ago so we were quarantined at home so I decided on a whim to just make it happen! You had zero accidents day 1! Hallelujah! You are still in a pull up for naps and bedtime and most often wake up wet so I think this will take a little longer than your sis did but I'm 100% okay with that! You on occasion ask for a diaper because well I totally understand it's easier and more convenient but I just remind you they are for baby Addilyn so you move on! I'm so proud of you! I get 2 whole months for the first time in 4.5 years with no baby in diapers! Holla!















Weight:  26 lbs 6 oz (17%ile)
Length: 36.5 in (54%ile)
Head:18.8 on (19%ile)

Diapers: Underwear, pull ups for naps/bedtime
Sleep: sleeping usually 10-12 hours, you are officially the best sleeper!
 Nap 2-3 hours from 2-4ish
Clothes size: 2T and 3T
Shoe size: 6-7

New words: SO many!! I understand about 75% of it now:)

Bachelorette weekend cabin style

This weekend we headed to Broken Bow to celebrate my littlest sister's Bachelorette weekend. Can't believe she will be tying the knot in 20 days, I swear she is still 10!! She is serisouly the most beautiful girl inside and out. I am so excited for her and so proud of the beautiful woman she has become. I was in charge of planning a Bachelorette weekend for 20 girls and not gonna lie I felt inadequate and a little overwhelmed. I mean I hadn't planned a bachelorette party in over 6 years! I gave my sis several options and she liked the cabin in OK option the best! It was so fun. I consulted Airbnb and found the cutest cabin. We headed down Friday and had a relaxing night sipping wine (me some cranberry juice ha) around the table and chatting all night. Saturday we set off on a hike at Beaver's Bend State Park after a little breakfast. We may have gone on a 10 minute detour, but we made it. I told the girls I have planned a ton of parties but never a State Park hike ha! After the hike we headed back for lunch and showers before heading out for wine tasting and dinner. After dinner we headed back for her lingerie shower, adorable girl time, hot tubbing, chatting, so fun! We all headed back Sunday after a quick breakfast! Such a fun weekend. I highly recommend Broken Bow for a quick weekend family or girl's weekend getaway!
