Happy Friday! We finally have sunshine in the Big D after what feels like weeks of rain, so we're celebrating and doing a little happy dance over here! What we've had in North Texas is nothing compared to what Houston and other parts of southeast Texas have experienced, and my prayers and thoughts are with all of those down there who are affected. 

Did y'all see the photos Kensington Palace released earlier this week of The Queen with her two youngest grandchildren and five great-grandchildren? (Along with the photos of the four monarchs: The Queen, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince George?) Oh my gosh, I'm  in love! They're just precious! 

Would any of you DFW-area mommy bloggers be interested in some sort of a meet up with our littles? It's been on my heart and mind for a while, and of course I'm just now asking this at 35 weeks pregnant…! But I'd love to do it if any of y'all are interested. 

And I just want to add onto this that blog friends are seriously awesome and I just love how this blogging community brings people together. I so wish I could have some of you ladies live right by me, because our daily chats, text messages and emails would be so much better if you were right here! My sweet blog-friend-turned-real-life-friend Gentel sent us a surprise gift of diapers and wipes for baby boy #2 on Wednesday, and it just made me cry. I'm just beyond thankful for my friends that live here, as well as those I've met through this blog. #happytears 

I bought this top at Old Navy and am officially in love. Of course, I can't wear it just yet with this big ol' belly, but I'm anxiously awaiting wearing it once this sweet boy gets here next month. 

I tried the Living Proof Full Shampoo and Conditioner after seeing it on Kate's blog, and I am pretty dang obsessed. I have been using their dry shampoo for a while and love the way it smells and how well it works, and I feel like the shampoo and conditioner really do give my hair great lift and body! (Plus, it helps that I got two inches of my hair chopped off on Wednesday!) I also bought this texturizing powder to help give me lift at my crown and let me tell y'all, it's worth every single penny. Have y'all tried any of these products? 

Thank y'all for entering my PinkBlush giveaway on Tuesday! Y'all were so sweet with your comments and most definitely know how to make a big ol' pregnant girl feel good. :)

That said, Rafflecopter has randomly selected Dana K. as the winner! Dana, I've sent you an email to claim your prize! :) 

*Also, I wanted to add here that I'm thankful for all of your sweet comments on this blog! I try to reply to each of you, but many of you have a "No-Reply" email address, so I can't write you back! (Sad face.) Here's a super helpful tutorial on how to fix that! :)

  2. I'm so glad the rain is letting up for you all! I hope you get to do something fun outside and enjoy the weather this weekend! The obsession is real with the Royal Family. That first picture? I'm pretty sure I just stared at for several minutes the other day. Prince George is just the cutest thing ever. Thanks for the heads up about that Old Navy top, it's so cute and perfect for post baby!!

  3. I wish we lived closer too! You've become a staple in my day-to-day and I love it! I haven't tried the living proof stuff yet other than the dry shampoo but Im sure it's awesome! I need to try out that spray you mention tho! My hair is fine and I have trouble keeping body in it.
    Yay for sunshine!!! Hope you and Walker get to go out and play in the sunshine-send me some snaps! :)

  4. Wow those pictures of the royal family are so cute! I imagine how hard it is to get that many kids to stand still and smile to get the picture, though- I feel like I'm always chasing my kiddos around and saying "Smile- look at the camera, no up here not down there." Haha. Have a great weekend!

  5. An excuse to get out of the house and meet other bloggers? Sign me up!! ;) Those pictures of the Royal family are just too much - love!

  7. I can't even handle how cute prince George is, but did you see they did a face swap with him and the queen and she looked like amanda bynes - it was hilarious!! So glad you are getting some sunshine!! Have a great weekend girl!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston
