Five Friday Favorites

Yay for Friday! I'm looking forward to a weekend of no work and no major plans! We're doing the new carpet in the house this weekend and going hunting so I'm looking forward to a low key weekend around home with the hubs! It's been a couple months since that's happened!
I'm linking up for both Friday Favorites and Five on Friday!

Maternity Clothes
Yes, I broke down and bought some maternity pants {from Motherhood Maternity} because the belly band just wasn't cutting it. Don't get me wrong, those are great, however maternity pants are HEAVEN! My favorite thing being the maternity leggings! Must have! The plus side {which I recommend to fellow mammas}, They give you a huge bag of goodies full of coupons and gift cards {shutterfly, nursing pillow, Dria, diapers, bottles, etc} and a subscription for the Parents magazine, plus I got a $30 off coupon and I plan on getting a few more pants. I just can't handle the tight waist nonsense. Anything else I'm missing out on for maternity clothes?!

Statement Necklaces
I've been wearing a lot of sweaters and statement necklaces lately - which I love. And sometimes I forget about all the awesome necklaces I have tucked away in my jewelry box. Such as this one. I got it at Walmart several months ago for $10. Can't beat that!

Next weeks appointment and Ultrasound!
I'm looking forward to next week's well baby visit and ultrasound! My Mamma is going to the appointment with me so that will be nice! I'm thinking about taking an envelope to seal the gender in if they are able to determine and in case we decide to have a reveal party. I'm not setting my heart on finding out because I have a feeling if I did, the baby wouldn't cooperate and/or the hubs will get put on a 7 day mandatory work schedule and we wouldn't be able to follow through with the party. So I'm just taking it as it comes and if it works out - awesome! If not, no biggie! :)

Cuddle Babes
{Knock on Wood} The kids have been very good lately! And extra cuddly! Sometimes I wonder if they know I have a bundle of Joy on the way...

Not one, not two, but THREE fellow blogging ladies have recently announced the exciting news of expecting a little bundle of joy as well! I'm looking forward to following along and sharing this incredible journey with these beautiful ladies! Please join me in congratulating them!
