Weekend Notes

mini peanut butter & jelly wafflesHappy weekend, darlings! This one’s all about celebrating baby’s arrival around here, first with a couples’ shower that some close friends hosted for us last night, and today, with a casual family barbecue. There’s something about unwrapping all those onesies in shades of grey and blue that makes it that much more real we’ll be welcoming a boy into our family – and the world – in just a few weeks. I was talking to some friends last night about certain things that were different the second time around: when I was pregnant with Phoebe, I had all kinds of questions and apprehensions… this time, I’m much more relaxed, and just incredibly excited to meet this baby and see what he looks like and get to know his little personality. I’m definitely feeling ready to get this show on the road, but in the meantime, we have some really fun stuff coming up on the blog this week: a healthy nacho party we threw in honor of Cinco de Mayo, my morning skincare ritual, a no-bake granola bar recipe I can’t stop making, and more. Have a lovely Sunday, and enjoy these favorite links from around the web this week!
