Monday Randoms + Giveaway Winner

Monday, October 13, 2014

So much for a Fall weekend here, it was in the high 80s the whole time which really threw my game when it came to pulling out more Halloween decor. It was busy and productive though, and we're really looking forward to having family in town this week!

+ I managed to get my act together enough to make a new Fall wreath! Last year I went with simple wheat and a big, fun bow (see the tutorial here, it's probably my most popular post!), but this year I wanted something with more color since our door is black. I bought a bunch of leaves and some berries from Hobby Lobby, arranged them how I wanted, then went back and used some floral wire/hot glue to secure everything.


+ We finally decided on a rocker for the nursery! I was hesitant about the wingback Pottery Barn rocker because of the price, I mean think about how many cute monogrammed rompers I can get for that, so we switched it up and I'm really excited about it. Stay tuned to see which one we picked!

+ In other baby news, we worked on our registry this weekend. Such a daunting task, we definitely have some fine tuning to do but it was fun! As an added bonus, my husband was still smiling by the end (probably because he knew he was closer to getting home to watch football).


+ I headed to my first prenatal yoga class this weekend! I have to say it felt amazing getting back into yoga, I haven't taken a class since before the babe came along. There was a girl who was 39 weeks pregnant in the class... talk about motivating! Now all I need to do is get some longer shirts since my belly was sticking out for most of the class... I'm sure that was really attractive.


+ Everything was 40% off at Baby Gap this weekend, even sale. I had to exercise a lot of restraint so I feel like I did a pretty good job just picking out three little things for Rowan, one of which are his first pair of jeans!

Stripe Sweater Hat, Velour Footed Pants, Jeans

+ And finally, congratulations to Stephanie, the winner of the Alex and Ally wooden teether! Thank you all so much for entering and following along! You are the best!

I hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. Don't you love prenatal yoga? I have been taking a class a week and it makes me feel so relaxed and stretches out all the sore muscles in my back and hips. I can't believe I missed the Baby Gap sale! Probably a good thing... Can't wait to see what rocker/glider you decided on!

  4. Sounds like a great weekend! I'm taking a different approach with the hubs and the registry (I learned my lesson from registering for our wedding). We're going in several trips and picking out one thing at a time. It's ridiculous, but I think it will help us not kill each other. haha. Can't wait to see which rocker/glider you decided on!

  5. What a great weekend! Can't wait to see what rocker you chose! That Pottery Barn one is so cute but definitely not worth the price! Glad you got to get back into prenatal yoga! There was a girl in my barre class who was like 37 weeks pregnant! I was so impressed with her!
