Thrilled to See You, Friday!

It's been another whirlwind of a week and as always, I am thrilled to see Friday! Tonight I'm using a gift certificate from my birthday for a much need mani/pedi. My poor swollen feet are seriously going to enjoy this and I'll finally have pretty nails again! It's the little things people - it really is. I'm trying to remember to be more thankful on a daily basis, even through the aches and pains ;) This week I'm thankful for...

- A small little baby shower at work. It was just a small group of us but the women at work were really sweet in celebrating our little boy! A few of them chipped in to buy our highchair which I know we won't need for awhile, but I still love it. Little man also got some swimming trunks and sunglasses so he is all set for these summer months coming up quick. And these burp cloths we received are just too cute for spit-up but I guess I'll get over that.

- Overall an easy pregnancy. Sure, I get heartburn and swollen feet and I feel like a turtle these days, but I've had a healthy, smooth 9 months and for that I am definitely thankful. I haven't been sick and have gotten positive results/updates at the doctors pretty much all along. I don't take that lightly and just hope that continues through for an "easy" labor/delivery!

- A new little buddy! My bestie had her little girl this Tuesday after a very long labor and emergency c-section and I'm just so thankful that everyone is healthy and safe! Lacey is an absolute rockstar and little Reese, I know you and I are going to be great friends ;)

- My creative outlet. Having an Etsy shop is such a fun little side gig that lets me be creative in my spare time; because Lord knows I definitely don't have any creativity involved with my day job. I am truly thankful for the support we've received so far. Amy and I are having fun with it, learning a lot and hopefully growing our shop every week.

- This hubby of mine who puts up with all my crazy, all the time. He's always great, but I feel like our relationship has just grown exponentially since finding out we were expecting. I couldn't imagine life without this guy by my side.

I've got a great weekend ahead of me and I hope you do, too.
What little things are you thankful for right now??

  1. Seriously, snap up anything muslin / aden and anais, etc. My son LOVES muslin. He has blankets (swaddles, the 4-layer quilts, and security blankets) that he sleeps with all the time and they just keep getting softer the more you use them and wash them. and the aden and anais burpy bibs were my favorite (I kept buying more) because their shape keeps them on your shoulder better than anything else!

    Best wishes for a smooth delivery. If you end up needing a c-section, don't be scared. I had an elective (because of my back) and recovery wasn't bad - just rest and take your meds. Hugs to you, friend!

    Looking forward to hearing about the arrival of baby M!

  7. That high chair will come in handy long before food does. All the windows in our house were really high when K was a baby so I used to strap her in her high chair to sit up and look out the window sometimes. She loved watching the world outside while she banged wooden spoons on her tray.

  17. NFLN shows eight prime time games, Carolina Panthers vs Jacksonville Jaguars live stream live on the channel through the season. Add to this the flexibility to observe a number of the best games in history and you have got a decent combination for any football fan.

  20. THAT BABY. Swoon. Also, cute spit up cloths are the best. It makes the whole being covered in spit up thing a little better ;)

  21. That baby is so adorable!! I can't wait to see how cute your little boy will be :) we got a second hand high chair that just sat in a chair at the table that we used for a month or two. But our table is way in the back and we rarely use it because we never go back there. So we were lucky enough to be given a full size high chair that comes apart so you can travel with it, and I'm so thankful for that! They can be kinda spendy but we love ours!

    I wish we lived closer, I have a ton of cute baby boy stuff that I'd let you have! Especially the really teeny stuff, they outgrow so fast that it barely gets used.

    I still need to buy some planner stickers from your shop! I've been meaning to but I kinda got out of the habit of using my planner and now I'm on a spending freeze so it will have to wait haha.
