Just A Few Things on Friday....

Happy Friday, folks!

I hope this week has been good to you. I'm trying not to let the "holy cow I'm having a baby in four or less weeks" nesting phase take over my existence... deep breaths, right?! : )

A couple of fun things for you this Friday....

Did you see my friend Megan's Pottery Barn Mystery Box Challenge post? Pottery Barn asked her to create a gorgeous tablescape with some of their items... and she knocked it out of the park!

She's actually competing with a few other bloggers in the challenge, so head on over to Pottery Barn's Facebook page to vote for Megan! And check out Megan's blog, Honey We're Home, for more awesome photos.


Also, if you haven't already, make sure to enter to win a $100 Visa gift card here! You've only got a few more days to enter so make sure you throw your name in the hat.


I have to brag on my sweet friend, Michaela, who sent me these adorable little outfits earlier this week for baby Ten June. He will be so styling in the shorts + tank, won't he?! David and I are so blessed to have so many amazing people in our life who already love our little man as much as we do! : )


For those of you (like me!) into all things baby right now, I've had a couple of fun posts lately over on BabyCenter, including two fun Etsy round ups:

14 adorable baby girl Etsy finds


16 adorable baby boy Etsy finds.

I'm telling you, the amount of cuteness in those two posts alone is crazy! : ) I also did a fun post (from a completely novice mommy, of course!) about the top items to pack in your hospital bag. After doing some newborn outfit laundry this week, we've just about got ours packed and ready to go! You can also check out all of the other weekly articles I've written for BabyCenter here.


So what are you up to this weekend? Are all of you as into the Olympics as David and I are? I'm sad swimming is over, since it's my favorite, but I'm loving all of the events!

We've got a fun weekend lineup of birthing class at the hospital, a dinner party with friends, a shower with my best girlfriends and finishing up some amazing projects around our house! I just cannot wait to share all of them with you! Until next week....

Have a great weekend!


  1. Happy Friday!!

    Our weekend plans are not super exciting,except that we'll be working on a bunch of stuff four our daughter's big-girl-bedroom re-do! It's just the beginning, so nothing too exciting, but I'm looking forward to progress :)

    Here's where we are now:

    Have fun this weekend, and try to enjoy your last baby-free days!

  2. Aww- thanks Michelle! And how sweet is Michaela- such a great friend!

  3. I can't wait to see the other projects you are completing :)

    I just made this quick nursery art to give to a friend with a newborn. http://projectsatthepicketts.blogspot.com/2012/08/spending-freeze-baby-gift.html#

    Our weekend actually isn't too busy, thank goodness because we've had a crazy week. Looking forward to relaxing!

  4. Happy weekend! I did see the Pottery Barn Challenge, everyone did such a good job! :)

  5. I don't comment much but I just love your blog. I can't wait to see the projects you've been working on.

  6. Such an exciting time in your life...relax and enjoy every moment! Reading your post this morning made me stop and think how fast life moves...you are expecting your first baby in 4 weeks...and I am sending my first baby off to college in 4 weeks! sniff, sniff...
    Happy Weekend to you too!

  7. Enjoy your weekend, Michelle! Back to school for us on Monday -- boo. :/

  8. Loved Megan's table- voted for her, of course! I'm so happy you love the outfits...can't wait to see him in it. The tank and shorts...I'm dying already!

  9. Hurray for 4 weeks or less til you get to meet that sweet baby boy! That tablescape is gorgeous and love the sweet outfits from Michaela!

  10. Cannot wait to head over and see all of the Pottery Barn challenge! How awesome! Cannot wait to see what projects you have been up to.

  11. You have been a busy mommy! I am so proud of Megan. . such a fipping fun challenge. And yes, Ryan and I are NUTS over the olympics. SO much so that we challenge each other to try things we see. It gets ugly.

  12. I'm with you - I'm Olympics obsessed, but I'm so sad when there's no more swimming to watch. That and synchronized diving were making my night every day after work. I find track and field less interesting to watch (not that it stops me...). Have a great weekend!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear what you think. I ♥ comments.
