Thoughts For Friday

Oct 11, 2013

Happy Friday Friends. The hubs is off fishing all weekend so me and little man are going to have alot of quality time together. We have big plans to to have a movie date and see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. 

With Columbus Day on Monday lots of places are having sales.  Tibi is having their Friends and Family Sale, 25% off full priced merchandise.  A few of my favorites, scroll thru to view and use code FRIENDS25 at check out. I love Tibi, always such good quality pieces.

Thanks to Megan, I snagged the most fabulous agate bookends for the nursery at Marshalls for $12.99.  If you need a blue pair I spied an awesome set at West Elm for only $19 (view here).  These things normally sell for $200+!

My Serena and Lily Pom-Pom Curtains arrived for the nursery, and I am obsessed.  You can still take advantage of the Friends and Family event thru Monday.  I highly recommend these curtains, use code HEART20 to get 20% off.

 I am already dreaming about getting back in regular clothes.  I am so over wearing the same few outfits and feeling like a cow, only good thing is I have not been shopping so I am saving money.  First on my post baby purchase list is a pair of MOTHER jeans.  I have heard rave reviews about these!  They are high waisted which I really like and are supposed to be really flattering.

I am smitten with this Python Clutch from Banana Republic.  It is a great price for a cool oversized clutch.  I am debating between the navy and grey.  Banana Republic has actually had some cute stuff this fall.

Sandra Bullock has been looking amazing lately at all the Gravity premieres (that movie still freaks me out and gives me anxiety, I could never watch it)!  She is 49 and looks fabulous.  I am wondering if she has a new stylist.  Loving this look in a major way.

Sterling has been such a doll lately, loving on my tummy and talking to his sister.  Melts my heart.

How awesome is this take on kids sushi?  I am thinking Sterling and I are going to make it this weekend.  It is just bananas, peanut butter, and rice krispies.  Too cute.

and because I am dreaming of the day when I can have more than a sip of wine, this ecard made me laugh!

 Have a great weekend!

  12. I've been contemplating those S&L tassel curtains for my office…and they look so pretty in the nursery! I can't wait for the reveal! Happy Friday love!

  13. Those agate bookends are amazing! Seeing all of your nursery finds are making me want to decorate a nursery so badly. Not kidding, I've been pinning away. Wonder if Brandon would think it's weird if I turn the guest room into a nursery? The tassel drapes are perfect, btw.

  14. My lord that ecard is hysterical! I'm due December 1st and I told my husband I want my "push present" to be a few cases of vino! Have a great weekend
