friday favorites: a baby bump debut

Wow, it's hard to believe that this is my first Friday post since January! Time has seriously gotten away from me. I have so much to share with you from the past five months, but I will save that download for another day.

Today, let's chat about my favorites from this week.

[1] In case you missed it, on Saturday I shared the primary reason for my temporary hiatus. Baby #3 is coming this Fall! And believe it or not, this is my first baby bump picture. With the first pregnancy, I remember taking a picture every month like clockwork. Took a few with the second, and the pictures this round are practically non-existent. Is that not how it goes?

[2] Last Friday evening, I put my flip flops on, a pair of shorts, tied my hair back and said let's get this garden planted. Ha! No, really. I planted twelve tomato plants, four rows of beans and five rows of corn. All by my lonesome. My youngest was in tow, but he was mostly concerned with playing in the dirt with his equipment. I noticed yesterday evening that there are some buds starting to pop through the ground. Bring on some fresh garden veggies!

[3] On Wednesday, I shared all the books I've read so far this year. I'm working on making my list for the rest of the year. Have any suggestions I can add?

[4] I broke my sunglasses last weekend and by Tuesday, I was in dire need. I could not do anymore driving without them. I ran into TJ Maxx on my lunch and picked up these Jessica Simpson Mocha Enamel Oval Cateye Sunglasses for... wait for it... $10. I love them! They are so pretty and so comfortable.

[5] Lastly, I am absolutely loving these cooler days! Keeps the swelling in my ankles and feet down a bit, plus I feel like I can breathe a little easier. The only thing I'm not loving is the allergies that are still sporting around. I've got the crud, and since there are basically zero decongestants I can take, I'm soothing the throat with hot chocolates and milkshakes. I think I can handle that!

Okay, let's get this Friday on and kick off the weekend! To my knowledge, we have very little planned, and that makes me so so happy. I would love to get caught up on NCIS and Scorpion, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Have an amazing weekend!
