Monday Randoms

Hi, girls! I hope you all enjoyed your weekend as much as I did!

-My parents came up for the weekend to celebrate my mom's birthday, and yesterday, Sarah hosted a baby shower for Caroline and me : ) I've got lots of photos to share with you all later this week, but I had to show you a pic of the beautiful cake. It was an ombre color scheme with pink, light pink and white, and featured little rosebuds (for Caroline Rose) all over it. Gorgeous!

-She also had every detail perfected, right down to the food. She had sweet tea from McAlister's (my FAV), Chick-Fil-A chicken nuggets, which I craved throughout this pregnancy, fresh fruit, spinach dip and more. All my very, very favorite foods!

-Caroline got a ton of amazing gifts, but I was extra fond of this set that Sarah got for her, crafted by SheShe Made. I cannot WAIT to put those little monogrammed bloomers on Cee-baby for her newborn pics!

-Since my mom is up here staying the week with me while Stephen is in NYC for work, we're going to be putting all the finishing touches on the nursery. I hope to be able to share photos of our completed girly masterpiece very soon!

-I'm seriously obsessed with the Aden + Anais brand of swaddles and was OVER THE MOON that baby girl received lots of them yesterday. Apparently, Duchess Kate loves them for her little George, and now I see why. I really wish they came in adult sizes ; )

-Since Stephen is gone for the week and the grandmas are around, I'm taking my mom and my mom-in-law to the doc with me on Thursday where they'll get to see a 4D ultrasound of our babe! I'm so excited to be able to share this very special appointment with Caroline's "Nana" (my mom) and "Hamaw" (Stephen's mom).

-When I got home from the baby shower yesterday, our entire house was cleaned, all laundry was done and there was a juicy pot roast in the oven - all courtesy of Stephen. Have I mentioned that I really love my husband? A good egg, that man.

-Lately, I cannot eat enough green apples. I've been craving crunchy apples like nobody's biz. And when paired with peanut butter or Nutella? I die. Soooooo good.

What did y'all do this weekend?


  1. I really love those swaddles! They baby boy I nanny has them and they're so cute, plus super easy to wash since they're so thin.

  2. I will say, I have the swaddle blankets and this is my first baby i've had them with..... with Megan, I purchased the swaddle blankets, that have a pouch for baby's legs, and then have two sides, that wrap around the arms, and they velcro. Those things are heaven, because Megan couldn't wiggle out. Adalyn wasn't staying swaddled well in the A&A blankets, so I went back to the velcro pouches I have, and she's sleeping so much better in them and can't wiggle out! I'd get some of those if I were you! We did use the A&A solid white in newborn pictures (precious) and I take it with me when we're out of the house, so I do still love them, but just wasn't working for sleeping with us.

  3. Love that the grandmas will be with you at the ultrasound. So sweet, and something I'd love to do if/when we have Baby #2 :)

  4. Oh what a beautiful cake and love the baby clothes!

    can't wait for a recap!


  5. I'm so happy you got some of those swaddles! I was reading some crazy statistic that their website crashed as soon as people found out that's what the Duchess used. Miss C will look absolutely adorable in all those clothes :)

  6. What a wonderful weekend! The cake is gorgeous and all of Caroline's new treats are adorable. Hope you have a good week!

  7. I am so glad you loved your little shower! I love the gift set that is monogrammed.. But then again I think I love almost anything monogrammed..I cannot wait to see the nursery :)

  8. Yes! Aiden & Anis were the only blankets we used and our little guy loved them! He was born in the winter and they were great for keeping him warm but not stuffy hot. You'll LOVE them! Have fun finishing the nursery!

  9. For swaddling the Miracle Blanket is the best thing ever, you seriously need one. But for just cute amazing blanket for car seat, stroller or quick naps the aiden & anis ones are great too. We had both! And I too wished they had them in adult sizes. So, I bought four of them and had my grandma sew them together and I now have an adult sized aiden & anis blanket. I use it everyday :)

  10. In LOVE with all the monogrammed stuff!! She is going to look ADORABLE in all of it! :)

  11. We love our Aidan & Anais blankets!!! :)
