Five on Friday!

Starting off this new year by linking up for another 5 on Friday!

1. We had a fab, low key New Year's Eve. 

{yes, I realize this is prob the worst pic ever of us...and I am a whale...but I had to document our New Year's!}

We went to dinner at Ruth's Chris, where we sat at a table next to some Panthers players...of course I had no clue who any of them where, but Trav recognized a few. Our meal was delish as always and I even got a yummy mock tail! We came home and hung out on the couch watching football and then the ball drop, while sipping some alcohol-free champagne!

The best part was the I spent New Year's Day NOT hungover, which was pretty amazing. Pregnant New Years for the win. 

2. We finally have a rug for the nursery!! You may recall how last October, I ordered a rug from Rug and Home. Well, it didn't come in until December 13. Good grief! When I brought it home, it was too small, too bright AND there was a small stain on it!! Wtf! I was so upset!!!

So then, I bought this rug from Land of Nod. It shipped very quickly, and I got it less than a week later.....and it was a better size, but too much of a "dusty" pink. That was fun to lug back to the UPS store and return. 

So I finally had to throw in the towel and head to Pottery Barn Kids. I realized the only way I was going to get the right color would be to see it in person (no more online ordering) and make sure it matched my curtains and sheets (also from PB Kids). I literally spent alllll morning at Pottery Barn Kids, working with the sweet sales associates, trying to decide, navy, gray, pink??? We all agreed I needed to stick with pink, and I finally ordered this rug! It came on New Years Eve....and I didn't initially love it, but now that I've made Travis hang the curtains and the bunting, I think it's the best I'm going to get! 

So glad to finally be done looking for a rug! Now we are just waiting for the glider and some other decorations to come and the nursery will be done! 

3. We attended our last UNC football game last weekend (for this season anyway) last weekend, when the Tar Heels were in town for the Belk Bowl. Thankfully, it wasn't very cold, and UNC won! 

4. I ordered this jacket for Baby Ferg the other day. 

OMG, is that not the cutest thing?! I can't wait for us all to wear our black North Face jackets together and match!!
(I know, I'm a dork.)

5. Baby Ferg will be here sooooo soon!! I've spent my 2 week break getting ready for her and we are almost totally ready! I've washed all her clothes, packed my hospital bag, did my last big Buy Buy Baby run, almost finished the nursery...
{sneak peak of the alphabet wall!}

 ...picked out birth announcements, organized all of her dresser drawers and closet, installed batteries in her Rock and Play and other bouncer, ordered my breast my goal is installing the car seat! And I need to get it inspected...anyone in Charlotte know where I can go for that, that isn't only open on Wednesday mornings? (I don't really want to take a half day off work for that!) 

Have a great first weekend of 2014!!! 


  1. The rug looks perfect! That jacket is TOO cute!

  2. I already have nervousness about ordering a rug for the nursery because I'm so picky!

    I think I heard that any fire department will inspect your car seat installation for free??

  3. Oh my goodness...YES!!! SO much loveliness here! The nursery looks AWESOME! Your rug patience worked in your favor for sure! It looks amazing, and I ADORE the bunting from wall to wall. You are one gorgeous preggo mama, too, lady! xx

  4. You are like the Goldilocks of rugs! But it totally worked out. I think that nursery is lovely. Congrats to you guys and Happy New Year!

  5. Next year I want a Christmas card where you are all wearing your black North Face Jackets!!!! :)
