Fri-YAY!

Image via

I'm so happy today is Friday!  It's been a long week and I'm looking forward to hanging out at home for a couple of days and getting some things checked off the to do list.  Getting caught up on blogging is one of those.  I've been lacking in the motivation department this week because I've been so busy and it already has me a little worried for what blogging is going to look like after the baby is here.  I'm thinking about going down to a M/W/F posting schedule for the summer, but we will see.  I hate to slow down, but can be a serious time commitment. 

Speaking of baby, we had a good doctors appointment this week and she's already head down which is so crazy to me.  Really not that much longer now and therefore I've been "nesting" like crazy.  I mean, I even swept out the GARAGE the other day.  So weird, but it made me feel so much better to have it cleaned out!  We've been busy putting all of our goodies from the shower together and this weekend we'll do our baby 101 class.  Things are getting real, you guys.  What do you have planned for the weekend?  Whatever it is, I hope it's fun!  

+ An amazingly comprehensive post on cooking with fresh herbs from Jaclyn.  I can't wait to put some of her tips into play - I think using herbs correctly always brings a dish up a few notches.

+ I didn't know I wanted to go to Oregon until I saw everyone's pictures of the tulip fields.  My hometown, Holland Michigan, is actually famous for our Tulip Time in May, but is nothing compared to this gorgeousness.
Although, we do have junk food wagons (CORN DOGS) so there's that ;)

+ My favorite robe from this post is 40% off right now!  Speaking of robes, the baby definitely needs this one.
So so cute.

+ I have been obsessed with avocado toast for lunch this week.  I've been doing toasted sourdough, mashed avocado, chopped cherry tomatoes and a little salt & pepper.  I plan on hitting up the grocery store this weekend to try these 12 different variations from Camille Styles.

+ This mirror is everything (under $50 and on sale!).  I've been planning on ordering this one for above our fireplace, but then I stumbled upon this bad boy and it's pretty much an exact dupe.  Target does it again!

+ I've been hearing about the Tula skincare line all over the place and only great things.  This Discovery Kit looks like a great way to try their most popular pieces for a discounted price.  Love that their products all contain probiotics and are free of that scary stuff found in most cosmetics.

  1. That's so exciting to hear she's getting ready. I don't think a slower posting schedule is a bad thing. Gives you more time to give baby girl all your attention. That robe is so cute! I have several robes, yet I still feel like I need more. I was at Tj Maxx last week when I stuck one in my cart, and later convinced myself to put it back. Wow, Oregon is gorgeous! I had no idea. Those tulip pictures are amazing. All the pictures are amazing! I'd love to go visit.

  2. I love that robe! I have winter ones, but that one looks like it would be good for summer too! Oregon is so beautiful! We had flower fields living in southern california and I was blown away by how beautiful they were too. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Like right now he is kicking me in the hip, it's just weird! I love love love that round mirror and am searching my brain of where we can use it on our house. There must be somewhere ;) Have a great weekend, girl!

  11. Ahh yes nesting mode was so fun. You'll work and work away for the next little bit and usually just when you start to finally relax, that's when it happens. So exciting! :)

  19. I've been cutting back on blogging too lately and while I don't love it, I love it at the same time and having that little extra bit of time to finish all the other million things on the daily to do list. I can't believe the little one will be here soon - glad everything is going well!

  20. Oooh try a little lemon juice (and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper flakes for flavor) to amp up that toast! SOO good! Sweeping the garage = yes, you're totally about to have a baby lol. Happy weekend, pretty!

  21. Those tulip fields are gorgeous! I'll take those sites and a corndog lol! I hear ya on cutting back on blogging, it is a lot to keep up with between preparing posts, responding to comments, etc... I've gone down from 5x a week to 3 sometimes 4 and it's been super refreshing! Have a fabulous weekend gurlie, and enjoy all that nesting <3

  22. I feel like this week took forever! But I had a rough start and kind of a rough ending hoping to kind of relax this weekend.

    Would you like to come over and help me clean ??? :)

    Great news about baby! So exciting too. Getting closer. I definitely feel it's appropriate to slow down and enjoy the last few weeks of it being just you, Nick and Brady. Because you'll never be alone again ;) at least not in the same way, you'll always be wondering about the baby this, baby that.

  28. Hope you learn a lot of baby class this weekend! Love the carnival food at Tulip Time. I never pass up a funnel cake! Blogging can take up a lot of time so I do the Monday, Wednesday, Friday thing and it seems to work out.

  31. Blogging with babies is definitely no joke! Some new up flawlessly while others are sporadic (me!). I'm sure you'll find a nice balance, and probably new inspiration once you are a mama!
