Five on Friday {January 17, 2014}

Happy Friday! Oh my goodness, I am so happy that Friday is finally here!! Fridays before three-day weekends are always the absolute best!! :) Whatever you end up doing this weekend, I hope it's wonderful! :)

I'm linking up with Darci today for Five on Friday! You can definitely tell by my list today that I have a serious case of baby brain. That's pretty much all we're thinking about these days. Only a little over 8 weeks to go!


This is what my a small part of my Etsy favorites list looks like right now. I'm really wishing I wasn't *so* indecisive! Obviously, I'm struggling with picking out some frames. ;) We have all of the big things for the nursery, but we really haven't put much on the walls yet. I know it doesn't have to be completely done when she gets here, but the planner in me would really like it to be. My mom is going to help me pick out some things next weekend, so I know that will help! She helped me *so much* with our office renovation, and I'm much more likely to pick something out if she's with me! She has a way of helping me picture how things would look in a room! :)

I mentioned in my weekly pregnancy update this week that we had our maternity pictures taken this past weekend. We *loved* our photographer! I was a little nervous because I was hoping she wouldn't be one of those who just tells you to walk around and pretend she wasn't there, and she definitely wasn't. I mean, that is so awkward! There's something about *trying* to act natural that is so unnatural! Anyway, she already gave us a sneak peek! I'll share more when we get the rest of them back. :)

We booked our babymoon a couple of months ago and now we only have two more weeks to wait until we head to the Opryland Hotel in Nashville! We went for the first time last April and absolutely loved it! It's such a beautiful place and you really don't ever have to leave the hotel. Also, here's a tip for my fellow teacher friends in the area. Opryland has a teacher's appreciation rate of $99 per night for certain nights! They fill up fast, so if you're planning to go, you'll want to make your reservation a couple of months in advance.

This was the view from our room the last time we went.

My mom and sister have started planning my baby shower {cannot believe it's time for that already!} and I just love the invitation they decided on! It goes along perfectly with my weekly chalkboard updates. :)


So...I need some help. We're in the process of packing our bag for the hospital, and I'm finding it to be a little overwhelming. I'm pretty sure that I make every task more overwhelming than it should be. I've searched Pinterest and have come up with a pretty long list {right down to the command hook for our door hanger}, but I'm still scared of forgetting something or wishing I would have packed something. So, any advice? What is something that you packed that you were so glad you had, or maybe something you didn't pack but wish you did? Any help for this first timer is appreciated! :)

Have a great weekend!! :)
