Life with Ella {week 7}

Another fun-filled week with my sweet girl! 

Last Monday was incredibly gross weather (like today), so we met Rachel and Maggie at Whole Foods for coffee and just hung around the house wearing our green the rest of the day!

Monday was also bath night, and Ella pretended she was lounging at a spa.

She cracks me up!

We did almost absolutely nothing major on Tuesday, except snuggle extra with Daddy before he left for Vegas the next day.

On Wednesday, Ella had a play date with another Ella! And I took ZERO pictures. FAIL.

As soon as we got home, she pooped all over her cute Baby Gap outfit, so I changed her into a onesie real quick before going to get pedis with Kathryn!

Elle Belle helped us pick out our colors...

She was so good the whole time! I can't wait till her first pedicure!

Auntie Kaffy was also sweet enough to come over after to help give Ella a bath in Travis' absence (it's a 2 person job)!

Thursday was the first day of spring, so we took a walk in the neighborhood!

Thursday night was Ella's first trip to Cantina. I met up with some of my teacher friends, and they all loved seeing Ella!

Friday was a big day for us! Ella can finally fit into some of her UNC attire, so of course she had to wear one outfit to cheer on the Tarheels!

Unfortunately, she did not have any orange clothes, or she would have worn those too, to cheer for Mercer for her grandpa. 
PS-HOLY upset Friday!!! I was so excited for my dad's Mercer Bears when they beat Dook!! It not only helped out my bracket tremendously, but my dad was seriously on cloud 9! His phone was blowing up all day (he's a pretty big fan)!

Meanwhile, Ella and I were at the park with her friend Frankie.

(And this whole time at the park, I was turning into my husband, by checking ESPN on my phone every 8 seconds to see what the score of the Mercer game was and frantically texting my dad.)

Friday night, we took our first {mini} road trip up to Hickory. My mom was there for a conference, so we got to eat dinner and hang out for a little bit with her!

Oh and UNC won their game too on Friday night! It was a very good basketball day in our family! :)

On Saturday, the Callesen girls came by our house to meet Ella. I used to babysit Emma in high school, and now she and her mom are road-tripping from Ohio to look at colleges! I can't believe she's a junior already! 

After that, we set out to Old Navy for Operation: Find Mom Some Jeans That Fit. Still trying to loose those last 20 pounds, but in the meantime, I need jeans that will go over my huge ass and stretched out hips. 

Saturday night, some of my friends came over for wine night.

I had a little too much fun, and needless to say, will probably hold off on wine for a while. Being hungover with a newborn (while her dad is in Vegas) is super NOT fun. 

On Sunday, I made sure to dress Ella in UNC and Mercer colors, since they were both playing again that night. 

Unfortunately, both teams lost. Sad day. I hope we didn't jinx them!
We also went over to Kathryn's for dinner...and when I got home, I found that my stupid bracket was in dead. last. place. again! Thanks a lot Mercer (yes, I had them going to the Sweet 16, I'm probably the only person in America that did), UNC, Creighton, Wichita State, Syracuse, Kansas and Villanova. Perhaps my team colors and mascots strategy was not such a good one this year?
{Still really proud of Mercer for their crazy upset Friday, and UNC for making it further than I thought they would this year!}

I sure hope this weather {and my bracket, for real} improve this week! 
Ella and I are ready for spring!!!


  1. How adorable is she?! Having a little girl is so much fun. My daughter's middle name is Elle and we call her Elle Belle sometimes, too! Have a fun rest of your week. :)

  2. She's such a cutie. I had to go out and buy jeans around the same time after having Shelby. It killed me, but now they don't fit, which is good!

  3. Wow, y'all have been busy!! Ella has the prettiest eyes!!!
