Friday Favorites Catch Up

Friday, June 5, 2015

It's been a while since I've shown up around here on Friday or linked up with some of my favorite farm gals, so I figured it was time to do both again!

This afternoon we are headed to the beach for the weekend just Dan and his mom and I. I'm looking forward to a couple days away and some time out of the heat. It's supposed to be in the low 90's in the valley so the Oregon Coast should be sunny and around 70 which is perfect weather there! I'm looking forward to some time just sitting and watching the ocean from the condo we rented, doing some shopping at the outlets (although I need to back off on more baby buying), sneaking in a few naps and just enjoying some time together!

As of yesterday I officially started my third trimester. How the heck I am already 28 weeks is really beyond me. I constantly find myself forgetting how far along I actually am. I've even scheduled dr.'s appointments on the wrong week because I forgot how far along I was and I had to call back and reschedule them. Anyone who says pregnancy brain isn't real is lying!

If you missed it earlier this week, I updated all of you on our nursery progress. My dad spent lots of time last weekend at our house helping paint a mural in our little girls room. It's almost finished and I am absolutely loving how it looks! Dan found me just sitting in her room the other night with my feet up on a box of diapers just staring at it all.

Next weekend we are having our maternity photos taken which I am really excited about, but still trying to decide on what to wear. Here are a few of the images I've pinned that I'm loving, but do you have any suggestions on what to wear or what inspiration to use?

I can't wait to see this little one again on Tuesday at our ultrasound and doctors appointment. It has been about 6 weeks since the last time we got to see her and I just love it every time! Starting now I will have ultrasounds every 4 weeks and drs appointments every two to make sure she is growing on track and everything is going well. I can't say I mind getting to see her more often :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend & please send me any recommendations for maternity photo and outfit ideas!


  1. YAY for seeing your little one again next week!! I have one more ultrasound, and then I'm done with them. Boo!!!

  2. I live close to the Oregon coast! I wander if we are close to do a get together! Congrats on the baby. I love your maternity pics.

  3. I like the white dress idea for maternity photos! It's classic, simple, easy for Dan to match, and goes with just about anything :)

  4. Have so much fun at the beach this weekend! Hopefully you get some nice rest and relaxation!

  6. A summer dress is most definitely in order for your photos! Hope you're staying cool in this heat - sounds like I need to make a trip to the coast b/c I'm melting!

  7. The dress is just pretty and it looks great on you :)
