Can you honestly believe that next week is Thanksgiving? I know that the holiday season seems to come very quickly but this is a little scary to be honest. I also have a countdown till my maternity leave. I am taking two weeks off before my due date and I have never taken that much time off from my Nurse Practitioner career even when we went on our honeymoon. Maternity leave is going to be the most amazing/surreal time off. I cannot wait to meet my little guy even though I told him he cannot come next week because we will have a houseful of my inlaws family and yeah……if you catch my drift he needs to cook a little while longer. Okay, so make sure to keep an eye out for my holiday shopping round up posts. I’ve already started working on them and the sales are going to be starting earlier this year, of course they are. Let’s get into some favs from the week!
Scallop dress (non-maternity I just sized up) find here on sale ||| pink moto jacket from BB Dakota find here
Tell me how delicious these look? They would also make such a nice gift in a pretty holiday tin.
How many of these things on this list do you do? I am pretty confident about half of them but before 7am is definitely a stretch.
I absolutely loved this post from Karly and really gave me perspective when it feels like are people really reading blogs much anymore or is it all about the scroll on FB and Instagram? The line about don’t blog for anyone but yourself reaaaalllly hit home. I think I touched on this when I wrote about why I’ll never be a full-time blogger. I started this blog (four years ago to the month!) more of a way to document my life and share all my tried and true research. Nobody has time anymore to look up anything. If you tell me it’s the best, I’m already adding it to my cart. I’ve been trying lately to write content that I truly enjoy talking about and it feels good to get back to my roots if you will.
Did you check my 35 week bumpdate and all my pregnancy favs?? My assignment today is to finish grading papers, my closet install from the Container Store is going in and I HAVE to pack my hospital bag. I’ve read a bunch of y’alls post but tell me what you are so glad you packed and what just took up space. I will definitely throw some snacks in there, I am finding that as a common theme. Ahhhh I cannot believe I am going to meet my little man in a few weeks. I feel like overnight I just popped out. There is definitely a tiny human in there.
I have a question for all you fabulous DIY painters out there. We are finally painting our downstairs and I wanted to know your opinion about the difference in all the levels of Sherwin Williams paint. I feel like a majority of you went with that when I was getting paint color suggestions. Is the Emerald worth the price tag or are the other lines just as comparable? I’d love to know your honest opinion! Thank you <3 <3
Honest opinion do you guys want to see shopping gift guides? I feel like people are OVER them already because everyone is starting so early but sometimes it is nice to get ideas especially affordable ones like under $25 or what to get for your mother in law hahahahahaha. Let me know as I start to create holiday content what you want me to do research on for you. Now, link up and tell me your favorites from the week!
