I had to buy this running skort. Had to. Even though I am not running right now, or even walking faster then a turtle with a bum leg, it totally made sense to get it. I mean, it is hot pink and awesome, and I love running skorts. A lot.

Here is a little screen shot for you since I could not figure out how to save the picture alone.

This is my second running skort from Target. And I think they have improved their fit. The length is awesome and I am in love with the waistband. I just have the front part folded under my bump, but the sides are nice and smooth and do not give any of that ugly muffin top appearance.

Unless we are taking about my frontal muffin top...boom! Shameless 35 week belly pic for ya.  Even Boo thinks I am crazy.


Have a great weekend! Go find a Target running skort before I buy them all!

 
Besides getting as much sleep as possible on my day off this week, I also have a few random things to share with you.
I have been eyeballing these condiment containers at Target for a while. And then today, boom, they were on clearance. Sold.
Even though the spoons are colors appropriate for ketchup, relish, and mustard, the jars are not labeled. This is perfect because I want to use them for Mexican nights in our house-think guacamole, salsa, and cheese or something like that. Moving on to dinner tonight...
Thai Sweet and Spicy Shrimp Pizzas from SkinnyTaste
(Be jealous of my amazing photography skills).
This is a great quick and easy recipe to keep on hand for when you have no idea what to make for dinner.  I used the Flatout thin crust flatbreads that I talked about here.  And the only other thing I did differently then the recipe was I layered baby spinach on the crust before adding the cheese, just to sneak in some veggies.

And then there is this...
My current motto in life.
 
Having fun? Making memories? I am not sure how to finish this sentence. Probably, all of the above. The hubby made me aware that 6/21 is the 5 year anniversary of our first date. I am not the best at remembering dates, he is good like that. That is crazy though...5 years already!

These pictures are from our first few months together. It is amazing how different we look after only 5 years. So much has happened over these years that I feel like it should be longer. I mean, I graduated college...
We bought our home...
We got engaged...
And married...
And now we are expecting little miss Finnley in a month and a half!
I guess we have been pretty busy these past 5 years. And we cannot forget that we have these hood rats in our lives as well.
We have been lucky enough to go on some amazing vacations...
But all of that is not necessary for us to have a great time... (the picture below is the hubby and I dressed and acting as eachother for Halloween)...
I am really bad at being sentimental, but I must say I think we are incredibly lucky to have found eachother.  And I look forward to many, many, many more years and memories.  

 
With Finnleys arrival right around the corner I thought it was appropriate to get my wonderful hubby/daddy-to-be something for fathers day. Let craft time commence!

The project: to make a "daddy go bag" for the hospital.

I made the gift bag with a bunch of craft supplies that I have collected over the years (mostly from Target I think).

This card has the explanation for each item in the bag. I tried to keep things funny, but I did put some serious thought into my choices. Promise.

The finished product!

 
The hubby and I have been hard at work organizing all the amazing things we received at the shower...well I guess it was mostly me. But, in his defense, he put together the nursery furniture. So, I thought I would share the completed nursery-I absolutely love it!

All the great owl accents. How cute are these owl hooks that we received as a gift?

We bought this cute frame that was made from old molding and chicken wire from our towns May Fair-it is perfect for organizing her little accessories.



Everything came together as I had hoped. I love all the different wood stains and the feeling that the antiqued pieces give the room. Now we just wait for Finnley to make her appearance!

 
I cannot seem to find these for sale right now, probably because they are so cute, but I am really into these J. Crew sandals:
I found them on polyvore (still sold out) but stating that the retail price was $155. Luckily, I am such a good online shopper I have found a few other options.
The Glitter Embellished Ankle Strap Sandal from Express. On sale right now for 34.93.
The Xhilaration Lavada Slide Sandal from Target, $16.99.

And there you have it. A few options to add a little sparkle to your feet this summer!
 
For all the wonderful family and friends in my life who threw me a beautiful baby shower on Sunday! It was an amazing day and I want to post some of the pictures that people shared with me so those that were unable to travel can enjoy them. (If this post is not your cup of tea-I will try to post something less personal later in the week).
The beautiful grandmothers-to-be who planned the day.
The (almost) 4 generations.
The amazing shower cake-sooo good.
What an amazing day! The hubby and I are so grateful for everyones generosity and we can not wait until Finnley can use all of her gifts!
