Well I totally missed both posts this week...so I'm popping in now to share a little bit of what we've been up to lately!
As of tomorrow I'm 30 weeks pregnant, so about 10 weeks to go! I can't believe how fast this pregnancy has gone by and am watching the weeks fly by and getting slightly nervous to become parents to a tiny human.
Last week I was able to see my college roommates; Megan and Laura! Megan's parents had a reopening party in their basement bar and it was so nice to see everyone- it had been almost TWO years since I last saw them!
They gave me the sweetest gift..
It was so cute and I can't wait to dress Ellie in it!
So sweet! I know he will make an amazing dad to our baby because he already is an amazing dad to these two pups :)
Rory wanted to show off how dirty she was...and all of her toys! How many toys is too many toys??

Another Monday! How did we get here again?
As of Friday I am 28 weeks pregnant and officially in my third trimester! Today I thought I would share the pregnancy products I have tried throughout my pregnancy and whether they are must haves or if I would have passed on them.
The Snoogle: Must Have!
So this belly butter is nice enough, but I'm not sure it has made any difference. I prefer lotion that comes in better scents and this belly butter isn't anything special. I also read that stretch marks are genetic, so nothing can truly prevent them. I don't know that I would purchase this again in the future. I also have sample sizes of different belly butters but this tub is so large I'm not sure when I will get a chance to try them. If I do, I will let you know what I think.

This is the first display I saw which was mostly filled with pull-ups. I know at some point we will need pull-ups but currently I am most focused on diapers so I did leave those behind. I grabbed a few boxes of the newborn diapers because I am assuming that Ellie will be small enough for them for at least a short period of time. We also plan on having another child someday, so whatever we don't use up we will save for the next baby, or pass on to family and friends!
I would love to know if you stockpile anything in your house and if you built up a diaper stockpile before you had your kids?
Have a great day everyone!

Yesterday Tim helped me bring the bird bath around the front and it's now living next to the spruce. It looks a little tall for the area currently, but once the spruce grows a bit and we fill in more areas I think it will look so nice out there.
Next weekend we plan to mulch (it got up in the 90s this weekend and we just couldn't bear to be outside long enough to get it done) and then hopefully the front gardens will be complete for the season.
As for the backyard? Well, that's a work in process which we hopefully will complete soon too!
Have a great day everybody!

Bath and Body Works Beach Bliss Handsoap- I liked this hand soap. It was a great scent and the packaging was super cute. It's a super beachy but low-key scent, exactly how I like my hand soaps to be!
Folex Carpet Cleaner- I love Folex! This stuff works miracles and we were constantly using it when we brought our newest baby into the house. I've already repurchased this on Amazon and I'm sure we will be buying more in the future.
Lysol Wipes- My go-to for all bathroom cleaning. I keep this in my stockpile always!
Kaboom Bathroom Cleaner- I love to use this in my shower and have already repurchased it. It works so well and I think it makes cleaning the shower/tub more fun when the product changes color.
Downy Unstoppables- I can't do laundry without these anymore! Well, I can but I don't like to! It makes everything smell so nice and I've been purchasing these whenever I run out but I do already have several backups currently.
Bath and Body Works Twisted Peppermint Body Cream- A little off season but I am working my way through my lotions slowly but surely. I liked this but I don't think I would repurchase this particular scent in the future. I liked it but there are definitely scents I prefer more. I do like the body cream instead of body lotion though! My skin is super dry and this definitely helped.
Fantastik Antibacterial Spray- I was using this for my kitchen counters and thought it worked pretty well. I did not repurchase this though and instead bought the Honest antibacterial spray.
Mrs. Meyers Basil Multi-surface Cleaner- My favorite multi-surface cleaner! I love the way this smells and will keep on repurchasing it. I always know that basil sounds like a weird scent but it smells so great.
Bath and Body Works Black Cherry Merlot Candle- I always want to like this candle but it's never my favorite. It throws off a ton of scent so if you are big fan of the scent, then you will love it! I always like it, but because it's so strong I get sick of it so quickly. I am going to try to remember to not purchase this one in the future.
Bath and Body Works Tiki Beach Candle- I liked this candle, but it was a typical beach scent. It is nice if that's what you're going for but I am definitely going to try out some different scents next time I go stock up at Bath and Body Works!
2 Cake Batter Chapsticks- My favorite chapstick of all time! I have a huge back stock thanks to my husband :)
Bath and Body Works Endless Weekend Shower Gel- I love, love, love this scent. I will keep repurchasing this both shower gel and lotion as well as the hand soap. It's always one of my favorites and if you are heading to BBW you should check it out!
What products have you used up lately?!

Hey everyone, happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend and took the time to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. It was a rainy weekend here in RI, but I still managed to get some things done around here.
I wanted to share some garden updates I made back in April since I am planning on doing some more gardening next weekend and can then share the completed look with you guys soon! Tim and I bought some mulch and are hoping that we can get everything planted and the mulch down maybe next weekend? Pregnancy has made my ambition to do project go wayyyy down but I really want our outdoor areas to look complete this summer.
So, anyways! Back in April Tim and I headed to Home Depot and picked up some plants.
