Happy Friday, friends! Let's dive right in to what's on my mind at the end of this week.
1. Gold or silver? Hello? Anyone out there? You guys are usually so opinionated when I ask for your two cents but I didn't get a lot of feedback on my gold versus silver lamp makeover dilemma that I shared earlier this week. I totally value your awesome opinions, so let me know what you think!
I guess I should probably explain my overall vision for the nightstand area to guide your thoughts. I originally planned to paint the nightstands a deep navy blue (I actually bought Benjamin Moore's Hidden Sapphire after seeing it on here on Danielle's blog) but now I think I'm more inspired by a grey stain. Maybe something like the Minwax Weathered Oak stain?
I feel like the stain will give me more diversity with the nightstands down the road more than the dark blue paint. But who knows. Maybe give me your thoughts on gold versus silver lamp bases with either the navy blue painted nightstands or the stained nightstands? Yes, that's perfect for the indecisive one in me : )
2. Around the web. I've posted a few fun articles on other blogs I write for around the Internet this week. I'd love it if you'd check them out!
For any of you mommas to two or more youngins (or if you know any mommas to multiple youngins!), you'll love my BabyCenter article this week. Ooh and as a fun little bonus, there are a few never before seen photos of Little Lady June's nursery in the BabyCenter post! Be sure and check it out.
3. Tuesdays at Ten June. I'm already gearing up for next week's feature post. Send me your projects, photos, before/afters, kid-friendly posts, recipes and more and I'll feature you next Tuesday! As always, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Tuesdays at Ten June" or you can tag your photos (don't forget to include your blog link, if you'd like!) on Instagram with #tuesdaysattenjune (and tag me @tenjuneblog too!). Can't wait to see what you're working with.
4. Baby watch 2014. For those of you who are wondering if Little Lady June has made an appearance yet, the answer is no! I can't even believe that it looks like I'll be seeing my due date on Sunday (March 2nd). I went into labor with HDawg at 38 weeks, 3 days, so this waiting game is definitely a change of pace for us!
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that we did make another trip to the hospital yesterday. Unlike the first two visits during this pregnancy where my doctors thought I was in labor (and it ended up only being false labor, of course), our visit yesterday was due to a little accident. H was riding on one of his toys and fell backwards off of it. To avoid watching the back of his head smash into the hardwood floors, I dove (like an idiot) to catch him. Oops. Momma's instincts. I ended up turning and catching most of my weight on my elbow and knee but the handlebar of his toy bruised the top of my belly. After extensive testing, we learned all is perfectly healthy with Little Lady. Thank God! She's just a little too comfortable in momma's belly ;)
With that said, I'm off to eat something spicy, take a long walk, get a pedicure and do all of the other fun old wives tales that people have recommended to me, ha! Have a great weekend!
