Link Loving Friday

It’s Fridayyyy!!!

 Ha, yup story of my life.  Actually, I can’t wait to take it easy tonight and just run a few errands, work-out then plop on the couch with some take-out & Netflix. :)

I haven’t even done anything out of the norm this week yet I feel so drained…   Maybe this is what happens when you’re 33 weeks pregnant?  I just spent the week working, working-out (gotta get 10,000 steps a day!), and getting stuff ready for the baby, including her nursery.  Oh, and speaking of the nursery, it’s almost finished!  We ordered this glider and ottoman (in the natural/beige shade) from Wayfair.com and put it together last night.  It fits the little space perfectly and so far it feels really comfortable.   We have a few more things to pick-up and then we’ll be done! :)

Alright, and now onto the links!  Here’s what I’m loving this week….

Happy Friday!!!

How’s your week so far?  It’s been a pretty low-key week over here which is always really nice.  As much as I can’t wait to meet our baby girl this August, I also keep reminding myself to sloooow down & enjoy my last few child-less months.  So this week included a lot of easy power-walks and time spent plopping around the house. :)

And time for the links…
