Five On Friday

It's time for another edition of Five on Friday and I do hope you'll join along!

Remember, all you have to do is post about five things on your mind, add our logo (found at the bottom of this post), and join the party using the linky tools below. Easy, and a great way to find new blogs and be found. :)

I had my 30-week pregnancy appointment yesterday followed by my one-week gestational diabetes follow-up. Both went great! According to the midwife, I am measuring perfectly and everything looks great. The heartbeat was in the 150s and it just sounded so, so sweet. I never get tired of hearing that sound. My blood sugar numbers have been looking really good, in fact, the nurse/CDE would actually like to see me adding some extra carbohydrates in (ohhhhkayyy!) and next week I can just email her in a photo of my fingerstick results rather than meeting with her in person.

Growing, growing, growing ... up about 16/18 pounds now!

I was so excited to read my friend Justine's post yesterday with her $3 Kate Spade stud knock-off earrings, found at Walmart! Check out her post here ... y'all know I love an awesome, inexpensive find.

Last month I saw this adorable love note holder from Pottery Barn Kids. Camille is way off from needing one, but I was so tempted (they are now marked down to $15.50 here). Personalization is $9 extra.

BUT! BUT! Yesterday during a trip to Target, I saw these oversized felt envelopes and I picked a few up! I should be able to get them embroidered with names for maybe $6, and they are a dollar each (from the dollar spot at the front of the store). A total deal, and I can't wait until next year when Camille gets the whole love-notes concept a little more and I can strap this to the back of her chair by stitching on a little red ribbon. 

I posted this week about the zucchini pizza bites I made for the playoff games, then I found this recipe on Pinterest which is a little more involved but looks seriously yummy. A great option for those of you planning your Super Bowl menu!

Who's getting excited for Valentines Day? We won't be doing anything wild and crazy this year, but I do really love February 14th. I have a few decorations I usually buy at a major post-holiday discount at Michaels or Hobby Lobby and I want to put some things in Camille's room. Do you have big plans for the day of love, or are you a eat-at-home sort of couple?
