Happy weekend, everyone!
Today I am linking up with April, Natasha, and Christina; Karli; Erika, Narci, and Andrea for Five on Friday, Oh Hey Friday!, and Friday Favorites.
ONE: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who commented on my blog and on instagram, and sent me texts and emails after we shared our news yesterday! We are thrilled and feel beyond blessed and grateful! I seriously could not have been happier yesterday! We should find out whether we are having a boy or a girl in a little over a month, and we will definitely share! Either way, I can’t wait to see our sweet Davis become a big brother!
TWO: Speaking of Davis, sort of, do you all like country music? If you love it like I do, or even if it’s not your favorite, you should listen to Tim McGraw’s new song “Humble and Kind.” We heard it in the car the other day, and I just can’t help but pray those things for our children. It’s a great message, and I don’t know if it’s my pregnancy hormones, or just because I’m a mom, but it about makes me teary every time I hear it!
Also….I finally bought some Ray Bans! They have been on my wish list for a very long time, but since I have never owned nice sunglasses, I was hesitant to purchase. I saved up gift cards from Christmas and my birthday, and bought this pair! I love them! PLUS, they are currently on SALE!
Don’t worry – my car was completely stopped when I took this.
THREE: Todd and I are working on eating closer to a paleo diet, and I wanted something new for dinner this week. We are not doing it strictly by any means, and we are adjusting to no grains/sugar/dairy slowly. I do have to say, not eating dairy the past few days has been great! We will “cheat” every now and then, and if I feel like I need to eat something off the ‘diet’ I will! I just want to eat much cleaner. Anyway, I made a version of these turkey sweet potato burgers from Dashing Dish, and they were delicious! My changes: I added about 1 Tbsp worcestershire, and left out the garlic powder. I grilled them, served them over baby spinach, topped them with tomato and avocado mashed with salt and lime. Davis loved them as well!!
P.S. Costco sells organic ground turkey!
FOUR: Honor Roll Designs has some new looks!!! One is dedicated to the Summer Olympics, specifically the gymnastics team! When you all were younger, did you watch the Olympics? I remember that Sarah and I were so into watching gymnastics! Remember these names from the 1996 USA Gymnastics team?…Kerri Strug, Shannon Miller, Dominique Dawes, Amy Chow, Amanda Borden, Jaycie Phelps, Dominique Moceanu! This shirt is in honor of them! Also, I recently bought the Gap shorts pictured (in a size up) for the warmer weather.
FIVE: We were able to go down to Topsail Island last week with some of our family. It was a weekend dedicated to improving and cleaning my grandparents’ beach house, but we also had a little fun on the beach. Davis LOVES the beach, and it makes my heart so so happy!
Also, if you need any more convincing to visit my favorite place, read this article by my cousin, Allie! 9 Reasons Why Topsail is the Best Beach in NC
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Thank you again for all of the amazing support!
