Fireside Five for Friday!

Happy Friday!! As usual, this week has FLOWN by! We had something going on every night of the week (all fun things), so that makes it go especially quick. This weekend, we are looking forward to painting and going to my second baby shower! Well, one of us is not so excited about painting…but the end result is always so satisfying that it’ll all be worth it, right?!


Here’s what we’ve been up to this week! (P.S.- These are all phone photos so bear with me. They’re not the best quality!)

This happened last night. Hahaha. Eric got to wear the sympathy belly at baby class! The women got to make their men do something particularly difficult while wearing the belly, so I had him sit on the ground and pretend to paint his nails and try to pick things up off the ground. He was a champ! I think he got a little taste of what it’s like to carry around some extra belly weight 🙂

Five For Friday- Baby Class
Eric’s family and best friend visited last weekend and look what they did! I’ll have a whole post devoted to this project, so get excited for that. They worked so hard and should be super proud of themselves. It looks awesome and has really changed the look of the house!
Five for Friday- Front Flower Bed
Paint Swatches!! You know I’m a DIY freak when the sight of paint swatches gets me SO excited! These are the four colors I picked out for our bathrooms, dining room, basement, craft room, AND front door. Can you guess which colors go where?? I guess you’ll have to wait to find out!

Five for Friday- Paint swatches
Looking at this picture, I’m sure you can’t make out what these babies are. Use your imagination. They’re SOON going to be window valences! Eric put them together and now it’s on to my portion of the project- adding the batting and fabric. That’s on my list of weekend to-dos. We’re doing these wooden valences in the nursery and our bedroom. Again, there will be a whole post devoted to these beauties, so get ready for that!
Five for Friday- Valences
I saved the best for last! THIS is my new diaper bag!! I’m just absolutely in love. I’m such a cheapy that I’ve never made the plunge into buying a designer purse. So, when I saw this Vera Bradley diaper bag on sale, I made the impulsive decision to buy it! And I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. There’s just enough pockets, it’s the perfect size, and there’s a fold out changing pad. Perfection! Now, I can’t wait to fill ‘er up with baby goodies!

Five for Friday- New Diaper BagHope you all have a great weekend!
