A January Friday Favorites

January 12, 2018

Happy Friday, y'all! I can't believe we are cruising through January so quickly! As I sit and type this post out, my windows are cracked open with the faintest breeze coming through every now and then, my lilac-scented candle is burning, and Greer is bringing me the pretend food she has prepared for taste-testing. I love mornings like this, they are easily my favorite. While this weather and temperature spike into the 60's isn't staying around (it leaves tomorrow), it has me so very excited for spring! I can't wait to get outside for stroller walks or playtime in the backyard. It's going to be a sweet spring as we prepare for the arrival of our Junebug. 

Speaking of baby, I jumped on IG stories yesterday to chat gender and baby's heart rate. I loved all the messages you all sent about your experience with predicting gender based on the heart rate. I'm going to try to jump on today to share some of the results that were shared with me. So stayed tune for that, and be sure to give me a follow on Instagram if you haven't already!

I've been loving so many different things over the last couple of weeks. Sometimes that's hard in the dead of winter. But, there's nothing like a fresh bouquet of tulips (thanks, husband!) and a spring candle to lift your spirits a bit. We've been making little transitions around the house and working on projects, which is also a nice way to feel refreshed. Don't you feel that way too??

So, between Christmas and my upcoming birthday, I've been gifted a few new things that I am absolutely loving and wanted to share with you!

  • Maternity jeans can be so tricky, especially when trying to find a pair that don't scream 'maternity!' So I decided to give this new pair a try, and I'm crazy about them. I can't wait to find a reason to head out and wear them. 
  • I'm super excited about these new sneakers that just arrived yesterday! They are an early birthday gift from husband, and they are beautiful! **they're on great sale right now too!
  • My sister got me the coziest sweatshirt for Christmas, and it's going to be great to wear throughout pregnancy and after. It has zippers on both sides so I can make some extra room for the growing bump. My sweatshirt is the taupe color, and if you saw me on IG stories yesterday, then you saw me wearing it. I also wear a size medium for reference; it's oversized and a big baggy, which is exactly what I wanted. The plus, is that it's a longer sweatshirt so I can wear it with jeans or leggings comfortably!
  • A favorite drink year round is a latte with half white mocha and half toffee nut. This week I ordered the iced version, and it was SO good. Try one out (iced or hot) the next time you swing through a Starbucks!
  • I just applied this nail polish color yesterday for a fun pop of color. When Greer saw it she asked to have her nails painted pink too :) If it's too bright for your liking this time of year, I also love this option!

What are some of your favorites this new year? Happy weekending, friends!
