Friday Favorites

I sat down last night after work and thought, “Wow, one week until Thanksgiving?!?!?!” Anyone else feel in utter disbelief? I had three people text me yesterday to ask if I was in labor. Three. No, I am not in labor! My due date is two weeks away, my doctor told me this Tuesday that she is pretty positive I will be in next Tuesday for my appointment still pregnant. Baby Watch 2016 still goes on.

This weekend we are going to get everything hung on the walls in the nursery, clean out the garage a little and I most certainly need to get our Christmas stuff up! What do you have going on?

Favorite Moments:

–Yesterday was a fun mail day! The curtains for the nursery came in and so did my VIB haul! Well, the one for myself. This doesn’t include the gifts I got because prying eyes and all.


–I have treated myself to some Dunkin Donuts coffee pretty much after every doctor appointment this entire pregnancy, this Tuesday I added a blueberry donut to it. Why not?


On the drive to the Dunkin Donuts I passed this place and felt like I was transported back in time. I had to take a double look. Glad to know if I had a typewriter, it could still be repaired?


–Grabbed lunch at Tazikis with a few friends yesterday. Had no time to grab a picture of my salad because I dove right in, but here is the hummus we shared. They have the BEST hummus out of anyone. I am at that point in my pregnancy where every time someone sees me, they think it might be the last time before baby.


–This guy is a mess. Grooming appointment set for ASAP.


Favorite Song: I think it is that time of year where I can start sharing some Christmas tunes each week!!! Have you heard the Pentatonix version of Hallelujah? If not, you seriously need to get on this. It is incredible.

Favorite Recipe: These BBQ Pork Taquitos look and sound so amazing! A nice switch up from the usual beef or chicken, right???

Cheesy Baked BBQ Pork Taquitos -these are SO addicting! My entire family loved them and is already begging me to make them again! and don't skip the Chipotle Ranch - its incredible! via @carlsbadcraving:


Favorite Lust: I am dreaming of the day when my fat, swollen pregnant hooves go back to looking like actual feet and fit in normal shoes!!!! I want to be able to wear some booties like these.

And like how cute are these?

I would even be happy to fit in some shoes I could walk in like these

I literally have two pairs of flip flops and one pair of MK flats that I have stretched to ruins this past month that I can wear. That is it. It is a sad day getting dressed.

Favorite Links:

Aldi is getting even more organic. I really need to check out my local one. It has been years since I have been inside one.–

–I always read articles that talk about awesome drugstore products because I am no snob when it comes to things that actually work.

Favorite Funnies:

I have legit done this…

Just bumped into mannequin & said "Sorry". Then said "Oh I thought you were a person". Then realized I was still speaking to a mannequin:

The wrong subway. :: xLaurieClarkex~ aww.. Lettuce not make the tomato cry.. That's what onions do. ;-):


Or at least this is how I used to be. Insert bakery or something while pregnant….

    I had to remind myself this morning that Thanksgiving was next week– so crazy! And so exciting your due date is getting so close!! I’m definitely getting a blueberry donut the next time I’m at Dunkin- that looks delicious and sounds like the perfect post-appointment snack. That typewriter store does look like something out of the past, so cool! Off to read that article on drugstore products. TGIF 🙂

    I love the lil Dunkin Doughnuts tradition after your OB Appts. That rendition of hallelujah is my all-time favorite, I could listen to it again and again! That subway tomato….too funny! I love fun mail days! Look at all that loot! Oh my Thanksgiving is upon us! Are you going to go black Friday shopping, it might put you in the labor, LOL! I hope you have the best weekend sweetie!

    We pretty much ordered the same things during the VIB Sale, but mine just shipped yesterday! Sigh. Can’t wait to try the foundation! I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week, either. The past few months have flown by! I also can’t believe you’re just two weeks from your due date! Ah!!

  • Reply Audrey November 18, 2016 at 9:56 am

    I think we could all use a little holiday right about now. I’m so ready for Thanksgiving!
    My dogs are looking ROUGH right now because they’re shedding into their winter coats (if that makes sense…). I’m pulling clumps off the husky mix. My floors hates me.
    I love that version by Pentatonix. Also, why does the plot twist ALWAYS come at 1am??

    Happy Friday! I was the same way kind of shocked we are a week away from Thanksgiving. I remember getting kind of annoyed at the end of my pregnancy with so many people asking me if I was in labor or when the baby was coming. I know they were only being nice but both of my boys came 10 days late so the constant asking become really hard on me. Enjoy these last few weeks together and when baby girl is ready she will make her appearance. Those taquitos look sooo good! Have a great weekend! Beautifully Candid

    Those first babies are usually late anyways so I think you’ll make it through Thanksgiving just fine 😉
    I love you’ve kept your DD love up through your pregnancy. & then you need to inform them once you have that baby & NEED all the caffeine, they need to keep the drinks on stand by ready 😉
    I so laughed at the tomato at the ‘wrong subway’ 😉 haha

    baby watch! how exciting!

    have your feet grown? not swollen but actually went up a size or two? my feet jumped 1.5sizes up and stayed that way for like 2 years!

  • Reply Stephanie November 18, 2016 at 10:43 am

    Seriously, why does non-alcoholic beer exist?
    Those flats are adorable, I really want them!
    I can’t believe there’s a typewriter store! I haven’t even seen an actual typewriter in years! How do they stay in business?

  • Reply kristen November 18, 2016 at 11:03 am

    that meme at the end with aragorn is literally my favourite part of all the lotr movies hahaha
    don’t judge me but i don’t like normal bacon. i can tolerate turkey bacon. i know. i’m a weirdo.
    those booties are CUTE. and i want those new balance sneakers. they look so fun and solid and comfy for lots of walking (jeez how old do i sound right now). checking the drugstore products out because holla cheapo.

  • Reply Kate @ Green Fashionista November 18, 2016 at 11:13 am

    Yessss to all the Dunkin’ and of course donuts! And ugh the struggle is real when you’re a few weeks away from your due date, and everyone is asking why the baby isn’t here yet. Hang in there, hoping you can find ways to be comfortable. Happy Friday <3

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World November 18, 2016 at 1:04 pm

    Those taquitos look so so good! I need to get my hands on those flats too. Super cute!

    Turkey bacon is the world’s worst impostor!

    Have a great weekend!

    Those flats are adorable.

    Have a great weekend!

    I laughed way too loud at the mannequin and subway meme. Too funny. And I love those booties and new balances! And if you make this epork taquitos, I’ll help you eat them.

  • Reply Robin November 19, 2016 at 9:55 pm

    I can hardly believe that it’s Thanksgiving this week. This year has been crazy. I tried a non-alcoholic beer but didn’t care for it. I think beer is one of those things where, if you’re going to have it, you need to have the real thing.

  • Reply Katie Elizabeth November 20, 2016 at 9:31 pm

    TWO WEEKS! I am getting so excited for you! And am probably going to start stalking your Insta here soon for baby news, lol! My Sephora order is finally coming in tomorrow and I am sooo excited!

  • Reply ellesees.net November 21, 2016 at 6:45 am

    It burns my biscuits how rude ppl are! Dang! Idk how y’all pregnant mamas do it! Your posts always make me hungry. I can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving either. Everyone’s already moved onto Christmas it seems.

  • Reply Rach @ This Italian Family November 21, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Yes, it is totally appropriate to share Christmas music! And I love Pentatonix AND that song so the combo is a winner! 🙂

    Your Tazikis looks so yummy!

    No joke, that mannequin thing has happened to me. “Oh sorry… Oh, I thought you were a person… Oh, I’m still talking to an inanimate object…”
