Friday Favorites

Oh, hey Friday! Yesterday morning I sat down to write a post and I just stared at a blank screen for a few minutes and decided not to force anything. Ever have a day like that? This weekend the plan is to get the car seat installed and buy all the things! Baby things that is. We have several important items to cross off our list still. I just love walking in to Babies R Us and Buy Buy Baby!

Favorite Moments:

–Ordering a PSL on a Tuesday because it was Tuesday.

–Watching Mac explore and sniff everything in the nursery. He gets really excited when he walks in there and is so curious about everything. I hope he still feels the same way about her when she gets here.


–Girls night on Wednesday with Laura and Morgan. This might be the last one before baby, I don’t know?! It is so nice to just have some girl talk and delicious food. Melt had a pesto chicken sandwich special and we all ordered it. It was as delicious as it looks!


Favorite Recipe: This soup looks so perfect for fall! I think I need to make it for lunches soon.

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Basil Tortellini Soup - you will LOVE this soup! Iā€¦:


Favorite Halloween Movie: Hocus Pocus, duh! I must watch it at least once every year! I hate scary movies and won’t watch them, so this is as scary as I get. Don’t laugh, those sisters can be mean!

Favorite Purchase: After much researching and looking, we ordered this gray and white wingback chair for the nursery and it came in this week! This was significantly less than the chairs at Babies r Us and Buy Buy Baby and looks just as nice.

PinkBlush was having a sale earlier this week for 25% off their tops. I found this gorgeous chiffon-lined knit that I can wear now and after baby. How cozy does this look?! The tracking says it wont come until next Friday. Boo! Not like I can wear it this week anyways with temps in the 80’s still. So gross.

Favorite Lust:I need to get a delivery robe and cute pair of pajamas to wear at the hospital. Does anyone have any recommendations? I looked at the ones on PinkBlush but I am sure there are other places out there that have great options. I am thinking something cotton, I get hot easily.

Maybe something like this for pajamas?

I like the idea of this robe and nursing nightgown combo too! Moms, let me know what you liked!

Favorite Links:

–Ever wonder how much to spend on clothes? I am always interested to hear how other people budget for these things and what is a “normal” amount to spend.

    Babies R Us was my downfall when Erica was a baby.

    If I can find a gluten free tortellini that doesn’t cost as much as a car, it is ON with that soup.

    YES to that “hard on your kids” meme….i dont know why adults say that. you need to be hard on kids and teach them manners etc otherwise the world has to deal with those shits. no thank you!

    have a great weekend!

    That soup looks so good & that chair looks so comfy! It makes me want to take a nap right now. Have a great weekend!

  • Reply Marie October 28, 2016 at 10:41 am

    haha that is so very true about skinny jeans. Love the chair you got, it looks so comfortable. My friend has something similar and I love sitting in it. haha Five weeks left, that is so crazy but so exciting. Have a wonderful weekend.

    That omelette meme is so accurate. Haha! I’m in the market for some comfy pjs. I browse through them in stores but I never pick any out… Have a great weekend! Hope you get some baby-prep stuff done!

    I have a feeling Mac and baby girl are going to be bff’s, maybe overtime, but they will. Our dog took sometime to warm up to our first son. He was very clingy to me and would kind of lay across the room and just stair at the baby but wouldn’t go over and snuggle with him until he was about 3 months old. That soup looks so tasty and I love that it’s in the slow cooker! Good luck with the car seat you seem so prepared, I think we installed ours at the hospital :/ Have a great weekend!

    that soup looks AMAZING. i need it in my belleh.
    hocus pocus is scary to me! the guy with the stitches on his lips gives me nightmares.
    oh love the chaIr! you’ll have to let me know if it works out because then i will buy it too (you know, one day LOL). love the top from pink blush, how rude that their shipping takes so long!
    that omelette and scrambled eggs thing is me every single time. i’ve given up on omelettes.

  • Reply Lindsay Latimer October 28, 2016 at 1:41 pm

    So I probably spend way too much on clothes and makeup according to that. I really want to budget next year but this year is shot! Haha. Good luck getting all of your baby stuff this weekend!

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders October 28, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    Any day is the perfect day for a PSL, and I bet that it made your Tuesday even sweeter! I still haven’t watched Hocus Pocus this season! It has to happen this weekend for us! I hope that you have a great Friday and weekend!

  • Reply carly October 28, 2016 at 2:57 pm

    haha yesss with the last meme! Sounds like you’re going to have a productive weekend of buying all the baby things- so fun šŸ™‚ That sandiwch and cucumber salad look delicious! I’m going to finally watch Hocus Pocus this weekend– it’s about as scary as I get with movies too, though I did watch Misery this week.

  • Reply Mattie @ Northwest Native October 28, 2016 at 3:03 pm

    That sandwich and soup…yum! I am so ready for lunch, especially after seeing those! Hocus Pocus is sooo dang good! Such a classic! That Ursula skinny jeans gif hahahaha! So true.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family October 28, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    Hooray for baby things! That chair is so cute! Good choice. šŸ™‚ So good you got a girls’ night in before baby comes! And girl, that Alabama shirt is going to make my sister die laughing. I’m sending it to her now! šŸ™‚

  • Reply StephTheBookworm October 28, 2016 at 10:42 pm

    Oh I’m obsessed with that maroon shirt! I just ordered some new shirts like that. I really like long shirts and the ones that have that extra layer look on the bottom.

    Happy weekend! The chair looks so comfy! šŸ™‚

  • Reply Robin October 29, 2016 at 10:37 am

    LOLOL at the patience quote. At times I have definitely been “patient” purely because I didn’t want to go to jail. There is a 2/10 chance that I will actually eat an omelette instead of scrambled eggs.

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis October 29, 2016 at 11:50 am

    That chair looks so comfortable for nursing. When’s your due date? It’s great you got to enjoy a girls night before mommy hood begins plus that sandwich sounds delish.

  • Reply Jess October 30, 2016 at 10:51 am

    Those robes all look really cute. I bought a soft one from target and it worked out really well. I honestly wore the hospital gown most of the time because, not to be gross, but I was bleeding a lot and didn’t want to get my clothes dirty. But the robe was nice for when people came to visit who I didn’t want to see my butt. Also, I would like a similar glider! I end up nursing on the couch or bed most of the time and it is perfectly comfy, but I think the gliders look nice for a nursery.

    I need that “Make Alabama Great Again” shirt in my life so darn bad.

    • Reply River April 24, 2017 at 7:57 am

      These reviews are getting touorrtus. I just want you to know what happens next so I can read the reviews and not live in fear of spoiling you anymore. You should keep a teddy bear close at hand for the rest of the book. You will need the cuddles.

  • Reply Teh Megan November 1, 2016 at 2:30 pm

    I want a chair like that just to have. or a spinny oversized chair for our bedroom. Anything to replace the papasan. I’m over the papasan. I’m ready to break up, but the papasan isn’t ready.
