Friday Happies

Happy cold, blustery St. Patrick's Day which also happens to be FRIDAY!!!!
We've had our fair share of Winter weather this week (and our one and only snow day, plus two delays) so the week has felt like it went by pretty quickly!

With that, though, come some happies to wrap up the week!

~Dresser/Changing table addition~
On my day off from work, MG got home early and we went to IKEA to get the dresser/changing table that we'd wanted to get the previous weekend but traffic prevented from happening. MG set to work building it while I made dinner and, you guys, I'm SO in love with the room now! 
I hung up the art work from my shower and that little corner of the room is so sweet. I find myself wandering in there multiple times a day either to put things away/organize, or just sit in the glider and think about the coming months.
I'm smitten.

~Baby Showers~
Last weekend was my baby shower which I've written about a ton on here already, but yesterday my coworkers threw me and two other pregnant ladies a baby shower! Since it was for the 3 of us, I didn't expect much beyond a small gift and some cake (which would have been MORE than generous), but I left there with so many gifts, I couldn't carry them all! I feel truly blessed to work with so many wonderful people who have really become my family over the past 5 years.


~Surprise Mail Days~
On Wednesday I got a surprise delivery on my doorstep from my buddy Lynn. Inside were all kinds of SUPER cute clothes that Evie no longer wears, plus some goodies for mama, too. I couldn't stop awww'ing at all of the little outfits and adorable little shoes that kept coming out of the box, especially the little holiday outfits (since our girls are going to be about the same size at each holiday). It was such a nice surprise, and Baby G will definitely be wearing some clothes from a stylish little girl in the months to come!

~All By Myself~
On the one snow day, I was feeling antsy with my nesting and didn't have the dresser yet, so I set to building our baby swing by myself. MG has laughed at me wanting to build things since my shower last week, but happily obliged putting together the Rock N Play last weekend. Well, the Snuggapuppy swing was insanely a bit more involved, but I did it! All by myself I put that sucker together AND it works! Winning! MG chuckled as he walked in the door and said "you couldn't wait, could you?" hahaha
It's also HUGE, and now takes up residence in our living room until such time that baby outgrows it lol

On another person win note, I have all of my thank you notes done from my shower this weekend, in less than a week's time! Thank you, Bachelor, for being the background noise for my note writing :) Also, in the day of computers and typing, my hands are not used to writing so much! haha

~Getting to see baby girl today~
I have my next ultrasound at the hospital this afternoon where we'll get to check on baby girl and hopefully see/hear that all is well. As nerve-wracking as the ultrasounds can be, I always love getting to see her tiny little body moving around in there and knowing that everything is ok. Hoping for more good news today, and some more good photos!

Those are my happies for the week--all of them involved something baby related, which I guess is kind of the stage I'm in now. Baby mode in full effect, so I apologize for all the baby talk now :)

Hoping you all have a fabulous weekend ahead, with warmth and sunshine on the horizon!

  1. The nursery looks so pretty! I love the cute little elephant from your shower! And I literally laughed at what MG said when he saw you put together the swing all by yourself. I would have done the same thing! Happy Friday girl!<3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. We have the same swing and my little one LOVED it! Glad you received a Rock 'N Play - that was one thing I didn't register, but was gifted and it turned out to be my most useful baby item in the house!

  5. I can never put anything together AT ALL, so mad props to you for getting that swing put together all by yourself! You guys will love that sweet swing. Happy Friday, friend!

  6. It's great that you have such nice co-workers!! My co-workers all got together and bought the crib which was like $700...yikes! I was beyond thankful and at a loss for words that they were so generous. Getting those thank you notes done as quick as possible is the best because then you don't have to worry about it. That swing should be a great investment. Our little guy hated it in the early months but at about 3 months and beyond he used it until he completely outgrew it. So no worries if she doesn't like something in the beginning, just keep trying and eventually she may change her mind. haha Her room looks great!!

  9. The nursery is coming together and it's SO cute!!! And I've learned that seemingly simple items are the hardest to assemble! I've had quite a few ikea builds this week to add to my belt! :) Hope things go well this afternoon! XOXO, R

  16. Girl the Rock N Play is my #1 baby item!! Vivi sleeps in that beside our bed. It's so great bc she spits up a lot after eating and it eases my mind knowing that she is propped up a little and isn't going to choke on her spit up!

  19. Just a thought.. move that dresser to the right and angle the chair in the corner and put a cute girlie floor lamp (like a chandelier type one? ) ... it will balance that corner better. So impressed with your building skills!!
