Friday Favorites

Friday, February 6, 2015

Happy Friday, friends! I didn't mean to go MIA this week but a super busy work week coupled with a serious lack of sleep made for one very exhausted mama. Hopefully there will be more naps in my future this weekend since it looks like this babe is staying put a little longer!

On to the important stuff... my favorites from the week. I'm linking up with Christina and the Five on Friday crew as usual!

New Polish

Essie 'Watermelon'
I ran out of my favorite pink polish (Essie 'Off the Shoulder') and was forced to try a new one, but Essie 'Watermelon' did not disappoint! I think its great for Valentine's Day and since I'm a pink polish person, I'll probably wear it well into the summer. Anyone have any other favorite colors I should try in case I use this up too quickly?

Clearance Donuts


Leave it to the super pregnant girl to be attracted by a box of giant donuts on clearance last night at Harris Teeter. They were in a random cart in the front of the store and I just had to get them. I then forgot what else was on my grocery list... #notsorry

Stripes

Stripeout Tunic
Can we please talk about how perfect this top is for Spring? Especially with the white pants! I admit I have a serious problem with buying striped clothing but this may just need to graduate from my online shopping cart to my closet.

DIY Crib Skirt and Curtains


I had a couple questions this week about the crib skirt and curtains that I made for Rowan's nursery. I planned on doing a tutorial for the crib skirt but honestly had no idea how it was going to come out so I ditched that plan. I used this adjustable crib skirt tutorial as a guide and just added a pleat to each side of the crib skirt. It would have been much easier with some kind of cotton fabric rather than the linen that I used!

As for the curtains, those are super easy and you can check out my back tab curtain tutorial to make those!

Minted Birth Announcements

Clockwise from top: On Display, Welcoming, Little Man, Simplicity

While I'm over here not so patiently waiting for Rowan to arrive, I've been trying to narrow down my options for birth announcements! I love Minted so naturally I'll be ordering from them again! Does anyone have a favorite? I'm leaning toward the first one, but I guess it will depend on which newborn photo(s) we choose!

That's it from me, I hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Since Target is closing in Canada (sob!), they have everything on clearance and Essie nail polishes were 30% off yesterday. So naturally I bought 4. I have an Essie addiction. I got Licorice, After School Blazer, Da Bush, and Sunday Funday. I think you would like Sunday Funday!
    As for the birth announcements, Minted has a great selection! I really like the first one too

  6. I can never resist donuts and I'm not even pregnant! What is better than fluffy dough slathered in chocolate and covered in sprinkles? Not much, in my opinion. I really love the 2nd birth announcement! Hope you are feeling well and happy Friday!

  10. Donuts get me every time - yum! As for pink polishes, my favorite is Essie's Bachelorette Bash! As for the Minted announcements, they are seriously all adorable but I think the first one is the best, too! Happy Friday :)

  12. Love the simplicity of the first announcement, also. Great nail color! There's some essie color with the word carnival in it that is the perfect pink/red/orange combo also. You really inspire me to want to sew! But then I just call my mom and put it off a bit longer ha. Keep us posted on Rowan watch!

  13. Watermelon is one of my favorites! I also love Mod Square (super bright pink), Muchi Muchi (soft pink, wearing it now for VDay), and Big Spender which is a purpley pink.

  16. I've been on a donut craving kick lately too. I indulged in a donut hole, using my daughter as the scapegoat, but those definitely look even more amazing! Love the new polish!
