Five on Friday!

Next week is Thanksgiving!! On one hand I'm like woah seriously already?? And on the other hand I'm like shit yeah about time! We're going down to Houston this year to spend Thanksgiving with my Dad's enormous side of the family! Looking forward to seeing my 35 first cousins (for real, my dad is one of 12 children, Irish Catholics, I'll tell ya)! And I'll be bringing some fun Thanksgiving Photo Props to document the holiday! You can print your own here!

How cute are these Thanksgiving "Leftovers" printables?! Found via Carolina Charm - link to printables here!

Here's a little sneaky peak into the little guys nursery! I always knew I wanted a daybed for the nursery but once we found out it was a boy I struggled with finding one that I thought was masculine enough. I stalked this baby on Craigslist, had to email the chick at least 7 times before she responded but she did and I made it mine. Then I found out it was 3.5 hours away from my house.. cue Dave calling me a crazy person. But after I listed out all the reasons why it was perfect and what a deal it was, he obliged my hormonal craziness and drove me the 3.5 hours, loaded up the daybed and drove me back. We're off to a good start!
(Note: these are the pics from Craigslist, I obvi cleaned it up and made it pretty)

I've been recording Bethenny's talk show and watching the episodes that sound interesting. I'm SO glad I decided to watch the show where she had James Blunt on! He totally cracked me up during his whole interview and then at the end played his new song, which I'm now obsessed with!
Here's their funny interview:

And here's his new song: (he crashed a wedding to film this video, makes it cuter right?)

I picked up these break and bake cookies at Target before Halloween and was SO happy they had them still for Thanksgiving. You guys, these are seriously the best cookies in the world. Please please go buy some, you can thank me later.

Have you all started your Christmas lists yet? I'm working on a "Gift Guide" but it's taking me longer than I expected... I want to only give you guys THE best options! I'd love to hear if you've posted one somewhere!

Bumpdate: 25 weeks!


How Far Along:
25 weeks! (or just over 6 months for those non-preggos who don't get why everything is counted in weeks like I did prior to becoming preggo)

Baby Size:
An average Rutabaga (whatever the hell that is?) - Baby is approximately 13.5 inches long and weighs about 1.5 lbs (according to BabyCenter)

Have you started to show yet: 
Yes! I'm starting to feel quite large.

Baby Boy!

Maternity Clothes:
Still rocking the same 8 or so outfits... I plan on rotating those for the next 4 months.. I did invest in this maternity tank from Target that I love!

Stretch Marks:
Nope! Still using the Mama Mio products and loving them! Pick up some for yourself here.

Sleeping ok.. I bought not this exact one but similar to it, nightlight/knockoff scentsy warmer for my bathroom that has made the middle of the night bathroom trips much more pleasant. 

Best Moment of the Week: 
Visiting my new Dr and loving every second of it! I made the decision to switch doctor's because I wasn't happy at the one I'd been seeing and I'm SOOO glad I did.

What I miss: 
Nothing really! Pretty content at the time being!

Getting lots of kicks, punches and rolling around in there! Pretty entertaining to see my belly move!

Food Cravings: 
Chocolate Milk... but to be fair I was a pretty avid chocolate milk fan before getting pregnant.

I've started to get some heartburn after I eat which is not very fun. It goes away quickly with a Tums though so that's not too bad. 

Anything making you queasy or sick: 

Labor Signs:
No - talk to me in a few months.

Belly Button- In or Out?:

Wedding Rings- On or Off?:

Baby Purchases?:
We've bought a few more cute outfits and my mom got him THE cutest St Patty's Day outfit!! Thanks Mom! Oh and Baby got his first pair of boots!
And I took this to the framer today! I can't waaaaiiittt to see the finished product!

Looking forward to: 
The holidays and getting to see some family we haven't seen since the big announcement!

Five on Friday!

I've been loving everyone's Five on Friday posts so I decided I'd get my act together and do one also! (Bumpdate coming soon.. just need to snap a new photo)

 HUGE thank you to Day Old News for sharing the awesomeness that is Tamar and Vince with me. I stayed up late one night watching the episode "Baby Herbert Arrives" and thanks to you I now have SO many great ideas for my own delivery:   1. My friends and family will need to have a Crump Style Dance Off in my hospital room to entertain me   2. I have to copy Tamar's quote "Ok, a contraction feel like a dinosaur kick you in the back while you havin a period cramp" - Dave will die when I bust that line out   3. "Girl, sit down. Have several" is my new favorite saying. Amazing. In case you're also pregnant and want to see an entertaining labor episode - you can watch the whole thing here.

Swooning over how awesome this monthly gift delivery for new moms and babies! How great would this be as a shower gift? The gift that keeps on giving! Love it! Dave - take note! A Little Bundle - if you're looking for someone to review your service - I'm here!

I can't think of anything that I want for Christmas that's not actually for the Little Mister. I have no desire for clothing of my own... what's the point? And I really just want everything off my registry.. that's normal right?

I'm obsessed with Plaid right now, it's like I've got a fever and the only prescription is more Plaid! I bought this scarf from Zara and it's got me itching for more!


The Wise Baby posted their list of the Best Baby Products of 2013 - I'm happy to see that many of the items we've already purchased or are on my registry! check it out here if you're interested!
