Weekend Round-up!

Happiest weekend wishes!! We’re going for the homestretch here – each time I open my planner, my heart skips a beat seeing how close my due date is (12 days!) – so right now I’m all about last-minute pre-baby tasks. And there are heaps of them! My lists don’t stop, but thankfully I’ve been crossing plenty off recently, and I’m starting to feel settled enough to go at any moment (besides for the unpacked hospital bag!). It was so much fun opening up boxes of stored baby gear – some things made me feel like it’s been ages since my last newborn, and other things had me reeling at how recently I stored them away! Yesterday, Freida and I went through a huge box of baby things (plush rattles, swaddle blankets, newborn rompers etc.) – it was so special to be doing that with her; feeling like I’ve got this beautiful big girl on my hands, helping out with the newborn chores… :) So while I go through and fold this basket of freshly-laundered baby items, here are a few things I’ve been meaning to share over the course of this week:

These popcorn bird-feeder garlands are such a charming fine-motor skill activity for Shabbos Shira! (Plastic needles will do the trick!)

A whimsical read + a wonderful recipe for french toast.

A $200 bubble blower. Baby keepsake, anyone? :)

2012 in Nail Laquer.

This insanely-awesome playhouse has left me dreamy….

This bathroom-themed survey made me laugh out loud.

This hot-pink number got me thinking about my right to bare arms.

I loved this honest + beautiful piece on parenhood.

Ever wonder how much you’d earn if all your housework was done as a paying job?

Hilarious (and ridiculous!) Super Bowl cupcakes!

Have a wonderful February weekend!!! I’ll be back to share some of my hospital-bag-packing necessities next week!
