-10 pictures on the 10th day of the month-
{Document a snapshot of your life & find beauty among the ordinary things in your day!}
Linking up with A Bit of Sunshine
I woke up this morning with every intention of getting 10 pictures of our day.
And as I sat on the couch tonight looking through the pictures that I took I realized I only took 6.
I'd like to blame that on the fact that we all took a three hour nap this afternoon.
It was a good day.
We've been home all week.
Which normally would have me feeling antsy.
But it's been a busy at home week.
I've been trying to be more present with my little three.
Taking the time to sit down and play with them.
Making sure they're getting extra hugs and plenty of kisses.
Because in a few short weeks it's going to change just a tad when sweet Eloise makes her debut.
I washed her bedding and blankets the beginning of this week.
Her little bassinet is fresh and ready for her.
I think the anticipation of a newborn coming is one of my favorite things.
My nesting phase has kicked into full gear.
I've been on the hunt around the house for every dirty crack and crevice.
Laundry detergent, spray bleach and my mop are my best friends right now.
We're headed to the city this weekend for me to stock up on what I'll need for the hospital.
Later next week I'll share my hospital necessities!
Also, don't forget to be thinking of your Thrifty Thoughts ideas to share next Thursday.
Just in case you missed it check out the post here.
And last but not least. 
The week of January 21st I will be sharing my favorite handmade baby items.
at the end of that week there is a humongous giveaway!
Everything in the giveaway has to do with babies:)
It is really...really...good :)
Can't wait to share it with you!
Hope your week has been good!
Here's to a great Friday tomorrow!


  1. We've been at home so much this week too! I'm blaming the weather - not my laziness! lol! My sister is having her second baby soon and I'm feeling that same anticipation and she's not even mine. I just can't wait to meet her! Your pasta salad looks delish! Do you have a recipe or just throw it all together? (Hi, I stopped by from 10 on 10 and left you a giant comment! :)!)

  2. 6 pix: it's all good. :) I like your daughter's hair clip. Very cute. And that giraffe looking out of the window is adorable!

  3. reading on the quilt, love it!

  4. I never experienced nesting with any of my three pregnancies. By that point I was so worn out that I didn't even want to get out of bed LOL

  5. I cannot believe she is almost here!!! I'm getting so excited for you. Xoxo

  6. Ahhh, a 3 hour nap sounds glorious! I love days when that happens! I so miss being pregnant & the anticipation of the baby coming soon :) Brainstorming some ideas to link up next Thursday :) Have a great Friday!

  7. I can see how you could get sidetracked with those two cuties! Shoot for seven next month, and build on it! Happy weekend to you. Joining you from ten on ten

  8. as much as we make popcorn I think I need a popcorn bowl like that! Too cute!

  10. Love your set Ashley!!!
    And, can I tell you how jealous I am of your 3 hour nap? Sounds heavenly! Can't believe Eloise is almost here! So exciting!
