friday verbiage + some links

Feb 5, 2015

Friday! My love! I am so happy we get to meet again, and that this week went by relatively fast. So throw your hands in the air, and wave them like you just got a free latte at Starbucks and a childless hour in Target! (none of which happened....but a mama can dream).
Complete random fact...but I am obsessed with having the fruit basket always full. It's an issue!

So, I have absolutely no idea what we are doing this weekend, but I hope some of it includes some baby prep. Maybe getting the changing table into our room? Possibly sitting and taking the tags off clothing so I can wash them eventually. And I would LOVE to do a huge closet clean out of my own. I have been pondering the thought of setting up an account on instagram and listing some things, to help free up some space, but I am not sure if there is much interest. Thought pondering shall continue!

If you are pregnant, have a newborn, or just want some mommy tips, check this article out!

And if you happen to be pregnant and your child asks you "how the baby got into your belly?" as my boys have done many times. I just leave them hanging, Kate tackled the conversation and I think I'll just use her method!

My good friend Laurie and her husband are some serious DIY guru's. Her post about the accent wall they did in their bathroom using pallets is insane! I want to just live in her house that she has transformed into a Pottery Barn showroom....for a fraction of the cost! 

So a couple weeks ago I was asked to do an interview about blogging for the diversity section of the website Smart Indian Women. You can read more here!

I posted a picture on instagram of this "mystery mascara" that I was sent by Sephora and Popsugar. They revealed the brand this week, and I am so excited about it. It is the Roller Lash Mascara by Benefit. It comes out on the 27th and I signed up for an email so that I can snatch up a few bottles. It is some serious business. I have been trying not to use the sample tube they gave me daily, in hopes that I can make it to the release date. You can sign up for an email here.

What else? What else?

Oh! So we don't celebrate Valentine's Day...that shouldn't really shock anyone. But if we did this cute little purse would be a nice gift. Maybe to wear with a red dress and these shoes! My non-pregnant self would rock it, and my pregnant self would be jealous.

And last but certainly not least, sales! Old Navy is having an amazing 50% off sale on all baby, kids, and maternity clothing! Gap is also doing 40% off all kids and baby, and 30% off all mens and womens denim!! I couldn't help but grab this little color blocked one-piece for the babe, this sweater for Avalon, and I always stock up on pajamas for the boys when they go on sale. Annnnd I snatched these jeans for myself, even though I have no idea when I will fit into them...but distressed denim is my weakness! 

What is going on with all of you? Tell me what you are loving around the inter webs this week!


  1. I have the same fruit basket obsession... :) Gotta check out Old Navy! The two little need some new threads.

  2. I definitely need to hit up Old Navy, I need a few new things. :)

  3. A fruit basket that is empty is just such a sad sad thing. Thank you for the shout out! Shucks. I hope you get some baby things taken care of this weekend! Tick tock and all that. And thanks for the weekend nursing reading material!

  4. Love that purse but the Michael Kors Selma is what I've been eyeballing. Kate Spade makes a similar one too!
