5 on Friday

Happy Friday, friends. I'm coming to you a little later than usual today. It’s been a busy week over here and I don’t know where it has gone! Madeline came home from preschool camp with a runny nose yesterday so she tossed and turned a lot during the night and we are both feeling a little exhausted and running behind today.


I have been hard at work in the nursery this week. I’m happy to report that the closet is now officially cleaned out of all the junk that was haphazardly thrown in there and that it is ready for sweet little baby clothes. This may be my least favorite project I have completed in quite some time but it sure feels good to have it knocked off my list! Next week I'll be giving you the first sneak peek into the nursery by sharing a few fun pieces of art I made. 


The Shrimp and Grits Kids fall line launched this week. It is my favorite kids' clothing brand and I host a trunk show for them every year. I went ahead and placed an order early because I am always afraid of things selling out. I got Madeline the cutest little apple outfit for back to school from the Serendipity line which is so soft. I also got this dress to wear with little knee socks in the fall. The boys' clothing is especially cute this season unfortunately baby boy will be too small! Our code is 70024 if anyone else would like to check out the line for your own little ones.

Coffee + Conversation

Happy Monday, friends. I hope it was a good weekend for you!

Madeline napped until almost five o’clock on Friday afternoon which is just unheard of for her. So we took advantage of the super long nap to head out to our neighborhood pool for the evening and push a late bedtime. Every Friday the rec club in our neighborhood has live music and dinner. Sometimes they order in pizza or wings but this Friday everyone cooked a dish so we had lots of barbecue, ribs, pulled chicken, and all the sides and desserts. We had a great turnout of around one hundred people and it was lots of fun, especially since Madeline was well rested and could really enjoy a swim and the music.

Weeks 14-18 Bumpdate (+gender reveal)

I feel like I just shared my first trimester bumpdate and was so surprised it was already time to post this! One thing that is so different about this second pregnancy is that it is just flying by!

How far along: 18 weeks 

Baby is the size of: a bell pepper according to the Babycenter app and weighs 9 ounces according to my anatomy scan this week.

Weight gain: 8 pounds. I am at the point where I am supposed to be gaining a pound a week but was a little nervous about this because I knew I had indulged in lots of splurges during our trips to Maine/New Hampshire and San Francisco but am still feeling healthy.
