Five on Friday

Woohoo!!! We made it to Friday! I feel like I say this almost every week, but this really, truly HAS been the longest week ever! One more week till Christmas break, y'all! I think I can make it!!!

I'm linking up again to share five random things! Yay!

1. Wednesday night was the annual Charlotte Blogger Christmas Ornament Exchange, and it was a great time! Thanks again to Classic Annie who was crazy enough to host 30+ girls at her house!

I had so much fun chatting with everyone and especially loved hearing birth stories from the already-moms (don't worry, you guys didn't scare me too much), talking with some fellow teachers and comparing pregnancy stories with the other two pregos in attendance, April and Anni!

And I got this super chic ornament that matches the rest of my tree perfectly!

2. Speaking of my tree, it kind of makes me laugh.

Yes, it is a little wild, shall we say? 
(Kinda like my hair these days....also pretty sure that my tree resembles my short and stumpy body as well!) 
What happened was we went to this Christmas tree farm in Kings Mountain (we didn't have time to go all the way to Boone last weekend), and the "normal looking" Christmas trees were already pre-cut! I insisted we cut our own (I mean, we drove all the way out there to do that!), so we had to get a different kind of tree. But I kind of like it!! 

3. I'm sort of obsessed with going to the mailbox this time of year. Last night, our mail hadn't come by 5:15 (!!!!) and I felt like I was going to have a panic attack, ha! 
We've already gotten so many fab Christmas cards and can't wait to get even more! (And yes, I'll share ours soon!)

4. Alright, I made it all the way to number 4 without mentioning Baby Ferg, are you impressed?! But I GOTTA share an ultrasound pic from Wednesday!!! 

Obvi, this pic is not the best because she's getting so big in there, so its hard to get a good view, but can you see her little hand up by her sweet face? Ahhhh I die
I'll share more info during my 33 week bumpdate, which should be posted today....but I probably won't get around to posting till, oh like Monday.

5. We have such a crazy weekend planned! Tonight, I am babysitting AND going to my friend's Christmas party, tomorrow night is my other friend's ugly sweater party (any ideas for a prego ugly sweater outfit?!) and Sunday we have our hospital maternity ward tour (!!!!) and Travis' work Christmas party! And then of course, I need to find the time to bake Christmas cookies, finish Christmas shopping, clean my house and grade papers (ehhhh maybe not those last 2 thing so much)! 

Have a fab weekend!! 


  1. Hey Mindy! So fun meeting you! We had to get a funky Christmas tree a few years ago because we didn't want to make the drive too! Have a great last week of work before Christmas!!!

  2. I love how you displayed your cards!

  3. I love your tree! I really wanted to go out and cut ours down this year, but we could never find the time. Maybe next year! Stopping by from the link-up. Happy Friday!

    Forever Young

  4. I love trees with a little character so your's looks perfect to me! :) Have so much fun this weekend!!!

  5. The ultrasound pic!!! So sweet. It's crazy to think that you will be holding her in your arms in just a few weeks, isn't it??

    Great seeing you on Wednesday :)

  6. So great meeting you. I can't remember if you said you had an invite to read my blog or not? Let me know if you need one. Merry Christmas and enjoy the last few months of your pregnancy.

  7. Ok, I can actually see her face in that pic! It was hard to tell on the phone!!! Love it!!
