Friday Favorites: My Week's Top 5


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday!!! It's the first Friday in June and a host of stuff is going on.  We're rapidly counting down to my due date, which is currently 62 days away and I am READY.  Seriously, I don't think I've ever been more ready for a pregnancy to end lol.  Still, it's been a pretty good week and I'm looking forward to sharing some of that with you.  This week I decided to link up with the beautiful ladies from A Little Bit of EverythingGrace and Love, and Momfessionals for Friday Favorites. Here's my 'Top 5 for the Week'.







Swim Lessons.  I started swim lessons Monday!  Yes, I know.  It's a bit odd that at 38 (almost 39) and currently 31 weeks (as of yesterday) pregnant, I would take swim lessons, but I am.  I've never been truly comfortable with water and prefer to wade waist deep.  Bug loves the water and is a little fish while swimming in it.  I noticed Honeybee is not a fan of the water an all, and I didn't want her to miss out on swimming and enjoying the relaxation that water could bring.  So, when S. bought up swimming lessons, I said yes.  Guys, I was nervous as all get out, but I actually did very well.  The instructor is fantastic, has me at ease immediately, and got me very comfortable in the water.  It usually takes me 20-30 minutes just to get under the water and then I am pretty much done.  She had me blowing bubbles, under the water, floating, back floating, kicking.  It was great.  I look forward to learning more.

The kids have been taking lessons since last Saturday and they both did very well.  Honeybee was smiling and jumping in the water like a pro.  I promise you that's a HUGE accomplishment.




New clothes.  I keep telling you all I'm a Sparkle in Pink fan.  I finally had the girls in their lemon dresses and got massive compliments.  I then found a few new items on their site for Honeybee's first week of school in August.  I promise I couldn't resist.








Cupcakes.  Yesterday I had my 31 week check up.  It was a pretty good check up, all things considered.  I am still anemic and now have to take a prescription iron supplement in place of the OTC the doctor originally asked me to take.  But I don't mind.  Whatever I need to do for the baby is what I want to do.

After I left my appointment yesterday, I took advantage of some down time and went to m y favorite cupcakery.  I hadn't been in quite some time, but there were new flavors out there and I definitely wanted to try them.  I indulged in the week's flavors of sweet tea with lemon buttercream frosting (which was very good, but I couldn't taste the sweet tea and I'm a Southern girl), pina colada (which was AMAZING), cherry limeade, and velvety red.  Both of those are awaiting my sample.  It was the perfect way to end the appointment day and I have no complaints at all.





Awards Day.  Honeybee had her preschool awards day ceremony today.  She received an award for Phonics and Reading.  Her last report card was full of S+ (Above Average) and Os (Outstanding).  She'll be a kindergartner next year and I could not be prouder of her.  What a joy and blessing!


Summer Hair.  I tried to hold off.  I really did, but I couldn't do it any longer.  After heat and humidity and several days of 90 degree temperatures, I threw in the towel and got my hair braided.  It took three hours this time, but I was more than willing to sit there because the before was just not pretty.  I now have a hair style that will last me until a few days before my due date.  I'll probably get it redone at that time, but until that time; I'm good to go.

How about you?  How was your week?  What great things have been going on in your world?
