Baby Stuff + Random Stuff = Friday Favorites!

It's been a long time since I've linked up with Amanda for Friday Favorites!
I'm throwing a random mix together of things I'm diggin' lately! Of course a few of them being baby related because I'll be honest... with only 10 weeks {plus 2 days} until my due date, baby stuff is weighing a lot on my mind!  
Fav DIY:
As you may have seen on IG {@justjuliejoy} last night... I'm back to making some progress on the burp cloths I started on Thanksgiving. I didn't anticipate it taking over a month for me to get some spare time to work on them again! But phew... I'm running out of time before the baby gets here! I'm hoping to get the majority of them sewn this weekend. I've got the pieces all cut out. Just needs to be pinned together and start up that beast of a sewing machine! Get 'er done!
Fav Pin:
I absolutely adore this mobile for baby Joy's room! I didn't see any in store that went with her room colors not to mention a mobile is $40+!! Nonsense. I'm not sure how crafty I am, but I think I can attempt it. And if I really want to be cheap, you can find me stock piling paint chip cards at the paint store over the next couple weeks. Ha!  
Fav New Item:
I received a lot of new gifts for Christmas that I absolutely love! But this is one that I'm using every single day and I think it's quite awesome! The set I received for Christmas has one larger size as well as one smaller size. The plastic inserts are velcro'd {spelling??} in and you can remove them if need be. And it folds up into a perfect square without throwing the contents all around! I'm not sure where my girlfriend got it from but I found it for sale in different colors for $29.99 on HSN here!
Fav Purchase:
I feel like I have lots of favorite purchases lately... but this one is just too cute not to share! I seen this shirt at Motherhood and since I had a coupon, I just had to buy it!
Fav thing I'm looking forward to:
Okay so there is more than one thing I'm looking forward to...
1.) Going to stay the night at my Mom's plus doing some shopping and getting my hair done!
2.) Baby Shower #1 next Saturday! Eeeek!
3.) My brother is coming home in 3 weeks unexpectedly! It will be a short trip and I'll be working a lot while he's here since I wasn't able to plan any time off not knowing he was coming, but it will still be good to see him and I'm sure he'll get a kick out of seeing me pregnant! ♥
Fav Recipe:
Oh and why not throw in the dirt cake recipe that I posted this week and I know we're all still craving it!
Have a great weekend!
