Friday Favorites


This might be the most surreal thing I have ever said, but today is the day our son is due!


It’s hard to express how I’m feeling right now – nervous, excited, scared, nervous, happy…NERVOUS. I honestly can’t believe this is really happening but, ready or not, parenthood, here we come!

For the past couple of months I’ve predicted that the little man will arrive late and, while the day is not over yet, I still feel he won’t be here for several more days. In the meantime I plan to stay busy to keep myself sane. It is the oddest feeling in the world knowing that our lives are about to change forever, just not knowing when, exactly. Like I said, it’s difficult to express how that feels.

IF anything happens this weekend (that’s a big if) I will check in next week to let you know how everything went, and introduce our son! I want to thank you all for the support you’ve shown over the past 20 weeks. Each thoughtful and encouraging comment along the way has made me even more excited to become a Mama to our sweet little boy. You guys are the best and I know you’ll be equally as supportive in the following weeks as we adjust to life with a newborn. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Talk to you soon…here we go!

Favorite dish: Avocado and Gouda BLT Corn Fritter Stacks with Chipotle Bourbon Dressing. I literally gasped out loud the first time I saw this photo and recipe. What a PERFECT summer dish!


Favorite DIY: DIY Headboard. How cute! I love how the blogger switched the look up from the original version from Lowe’s to give it a shabby/chic feel.


Favorite indulge: Oreo Peanut Butter. I can’t even begin to imagine the damage I’d do to a jar of this stuff. Insane.


Favorite fashion: Dirty Laundry Beka 2 Sandal. Gee, I wish I’d found these about 2 months ago! Adorable and comfy for my pregnant blimp feet.


Favorite lick: Cucumber Watermelon Popsicles. I am featuring these babies for my Mom, who is obsessed with all things homemade watermelon popsicles at the moment. Her freezer is full of ’em for the grand kids! Love this kicked up version with cooling cucumber and tangy lime.


Favorite fitness: Pyramid Bootcamp Workout. Ooo looks killer. Saving for when I’m in the clear for an intense and sweaty workout.


Favorite fresh: Heirloom Tomato Bacon Summer Salad. All the best summer produce on one big platter. Yummy.


Favorite find: Ceramic Soup Crock and Lid Set. Perfect for the fall, courtesy of Dot & Bo. Love my daily email from them!


Favorite party: Burrata with White Wine and Garlic Sauteed Tomatoes. Oh. YUM! This would be perfect to set out at the start of a party. So decadent and delish.


Favorite freeze: Strawberry Cheesecake Popsicles. I recently made the Oreo Pudding Pops I featured a few weeks ago on Friday Favorites, and they were AMAZING. I am loving this creamy popsicle combo.


Favorite create: Crate Book Shelves. Super cute idea for the boy’s room. Cheap wooden crates painted then cut in half and mounted to the wall. Easy to turn into toy storage, too!


Favorite woah: Biscoff Spread Gooey Butter Cake. OMG! Gooey lusciousness. I’ll take 10!
