Friday

Five On Friday ... Four Days Til Due Date

I am really digging this maternity leave thing, not gonna lie. Yesterday I found a pretty good balance of accomplishing a lot (all before 1pm) and then accomplishing nothing at all (from 1pm til bedtime). And it was glorious. I promise I'm not always this lazy, but I'm realizing my days of being selfish with my time are coming to a quick close. And I'm okay with that!

Time for Five On Friday with my lovely cohostesses ChristinaDarci, and Natasha.

Here's my number one favorite. Drake LOVES laying by the crib. Melt my heart! My friend Meg snapped these photos of us recently while he was "on guard." Is it not the sweetest?

Check these glasses. This pair of Lenox Scalamandre lowballs are $75 for the pair at Macy's. Not cheap, but I'm thinking they would make a pretty fabulous wedding gift for any summer weddings coming up. Love this pattern, and if I can't have a powder room wallpapered in it, may as well go for the glasses.
{available here}

PS: I've noticed that this Scalamandre wall-covering works particularly well in smaller, transitional spaces, like powder rooms and hallways. What do you love most about it, and why did you choose it for this project? LR: I love that the paper is happy! I love its iconic, rich color and movement. It was the perfect selection for the project; it's spirited, graphic, and timeless.

Yesterday morning I made a double batch of these no-bake energy bites and they are currently in our fridge. I have also frozen these in the past, and they freeze so well! I figured it would be nice to have them around when baby is here for a quick bite. I just mixed all ingredients in the Kitchenaid mixer, let it cool in the fridge, and then rolled into balls. Easy.

  23. You're looking amazing in your nursery and Drake is doing a great job guarding the crib! How is he doing by the way? I love the zebra wallpaper. I totally wouldn't mind a little powder room with beautiful green & zebra wallpapering. Happy birth month! Hope everything goes smoothly with your labor and delivery and that you and baby are totally healthy!!

  33. I made energy balls on the day that my water broke!! I also made a variety of other things too...nesting! The only bad news was that my pediatrician said not to eat too much peanut butter when nursing in the beginning. So glad you are enjoying your last few days before baby!

  40. I'm in the same boat as you...had my first week of maternity leave last week (but I'm not going back) and I am now 10 days out from my due date to meet baby girl (baby #3). I am so eager...every day I'm praying for labor to begin! Good luck to you when the time comes and can't wait to see your girl! We are keeping our name a secret too!
