Five on Friday | Week Update Edition

December 23, 2016

It has been a very uneventful week off and I couldn't be more thankful for that. The weather has gone from absolutely freezing cold to me wearing flip flops to my appointment tomorrow. Christmas should definitely be interesting weather wise but I am so looking forward to hugging my sweet family's neck and spending Christmas eve night sitting next to them in Church and then eating Grandmom's home cooking. To finish out the week, I figured I would give you my five on friday in a "week update" form.

One. I finished up Christmas shopping and got to enjoy lunch and a catch up session with my friend Jessica. We went to a place called Flying Saucer and holy moly their pizza is They have a huge selection of beer and lots of different types of foods to try. I would highly recommend it. I picked up this precious bag to use as either my hospital bag or possibly Adilynn's. I'm so glad I have the bag but have nothing to go inside of it. I'm doing really good at this mom thing so far. 
Two. We got to hear Adilynn's heartbeat yesterday at our last doctor appointment of 2016. My appointments for the past month and a half have been quick and painless. She measures my belly and then we hear that sweet little heartbeat and that's about it. Thankfully we scheduled our next appointment and we will finally get to see her again after 16 long weeks. It's all sneaking up on me so quickly. She mentioned that I will start coming once a week after this next appointment. Where did the past 8 months go?! 

Three. Did you see my secret Christmas list I posted yesterday? Let me know if you have any of the things that I linked to. Would love some opinions before I spend Christmas gift cards on those little items. I've pretty much decided from your comments that I need the polaroid camera asap. 

Four. I have always heard wonderful things of ASOS and decided to try them out for myself since I needed a few maternity dresses for upcoming showers. Their shipping is awesome and the quality of the clothes is amazing BUT.... the sizing is not quite "on" with your normal sizing. That or my size has increased way more than I thought. I got this beautiful dress in and was so sad when I tried it on that it was already a tad too tight. The shower I would wear it to is not until the 15th of January so I'm thinking by then, it's going to be wayyyyy too tight. I went ahead and purchased this pink one as a back up just in case. 
Five.  I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas with those that you love most. I love everything that the holidays stand for and the extra reason it gives us to reflect and be thankful for the wonderful memories we made or the lessons we learned. I am looking forward to spending time with my family while missing family that we won't get to see. I can't help but think how truly blessed I am to have family to share this time with. 

It has made my days complete to be back in this space of mine and have the opportunity to chat and get to know each of you. Thank you for coming around for my randomness and for encouraging me along the way. Merry Christmas sweet blog friends.


  1. I've been thinking about adding an Instax to my photography/documenting supplies but I haven't pulled the trigger yet because I'm not convinced I really NEED it (and I think it can be pretty pricy for the film). It didn't earn a spot on my Christmas list, but my birthday is in January so perhaps it will make it on to that one!

    Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

  2. You're so cute!!! I think it's hard buying maternity clothes in general because the sizing can vary SO much. I'm sure you will look beautiful no matter what you're wearing :) I hope your Christmas was wonderful!!

  3. That dress!!!!! So beautiful my pregnant fairy x
