Weekends Are Still The Best

Hooray for Friday! I am going to be so happy to see this workweek end. Am I right? I know, I know... I should look forward to every day; I really do try but cmon, weekends are still the best. Especially when they aren't jam-packed and you know you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. I wanted to chime in with my "Friday 5" for today so here goes:

ONE: Weeknight dates! Last night we made a date out of our Lowe's trip and a local eatery we hadn't been to in quite some time. It was fun to sneak in a date-night during the week and just chat about life. I cherish every day with this guy!
Flashback to our Niagara falls trip last year!

TWO: When I get home today our baby boy's room will be all painted and ready to go! Jared and his dad are putting in all the hard work today and I cannot wait to see the final product. I'm thankful they are both excellent painters because that is something I do not excel at. Next week I plan to share some details/inspiration for the nursery.

THREE: A girl at work gave me a huge tub of maternity clothes that she no longer needs! I have made it pretty far with only a few maternity purchases- some basics like leggings and long tank tops + a couple of gifts I got at Christmas have carried me so far, but it's definitely time for some other items. I plan to go through everything this week and I'm hopeful lots of them will fit.

FOUR: Anyone watching Biggest Loser this season? I just love this show and this season has been really good so far! Bob Harper is the host this year which is different, but I'm still loving his role in the show. Usually I have a favorite right away but there are a lot of likable people this year. I'm also glad Kristin puts up with me texting her my every single thought throughout the episodes ;)

FIVE: This little guy wiggling in my belly! The movements are still small, but getting bigger each day it seems. I can feel him moving around mostly at night when I'm laying down, but I'm starting to notice little kicks and jabs during the day sometimes too. Craziest/best feeling ever.

I hope everyone has a wonderful, Val or Galentine's weekend! Speaking of Galentine's day- my Etsy shop is throwing in a fun FREEBIE for every order $10 or more through tomorrow night, check it out on Instagram!

  13. Oh feeling movement is just the BEST! You *almost* make me want to be pregnant again.... but I'm enjoying James on the outside ;) I can't WAIT to see what you do with his nursery! If some of the maternity clothes are too big, hold on to them! It's amazing how much growth happens the last 2 months of pregnancy (and not just in the belly... the buns and thighs are victim of extra blood, water retention and swelling too! At least in my case- ha!)
    Sneak all the date nights you can! It's such a special time of just you and Jared with the excitement and anticipation of becoming parents! It was like a honeymoon phase for Eric and me- SO special!!
