Happy Friday y'all! Excited to share a few favorites this week!

{---} I ordered FAR too many things this week and despite my Gap, Hanna Andersson, and Lands End orders all being placed on different days, all of my beauties should arrive at my house today. I just love getting packages in the mail! I'm eager to try on a few shirts that I'm hoping are nursing friendly. I nursed the twins for longer than I was pregnant and I plan to do the same again. Why is maternity clothes everywhere but stylish nursing wear so hard to find?

{---} Casey and I are so very blessed and know some truly Godly wonderful people. We have been showered with meals since James arrived and this has truly blessed our family. To have one less thing on our plates as we figure out this family of give thing is priceless. I don't even know how to thank these people enough. Seriously.

{---} Project Runway is back!! I'm not a fashionable person. I don't follow the latest trends. I don't read Vogue or any other fashion magazine. I'm the least likely person to love this show. But I do!! I wasn't immediately drawn to any of the designers but I felt like I should root for the boy from Dallas. My time on team Emmanuel Tobias was short lived though. He's already gone. Hmph.

{---} I've been a bit (okay a lot) absent from social media this week. I explained why last night. Worth a read.

{---} Also worth reading is this post by an amazing twin mama, Christian woman, and inspiration. Actually, you should just read Amber's whole blog. I feel like she writes directly to my soul. God is speaking inspiration to mothers (or at least to this mama!) through her writing.

{---} I took an abysmal number of pictures this week and have ZERO that haven't been posted already to add to this post. Oops. I guess I need to work on that.

{---} Scratch that. I have one. And it's perfect.

Cheers to Friday.
Let the twins pour you a drink!


Be sure to link up this Friday. I'm linking up with A Little Bit of Everything, Grace and Love, and Momfessionals for Friday Favorites as well as with September Farm and The Farmer's Wife for oh hey Friday!




  1. Meals from friends are a LIFESAVER after a baby! And have fun opening your packages today! I'm a sucker for mail days as well.
    Thanks so much for linking up!
    :) Andrea

  2. What a sweet crew you have~


  3. I love package day! Have fun opening all your goodies! Not gonna lie, it kind of makes me want to order something just so I have something in the mail to look forward to! Haha!

    1. I can't stop ordering. Etsy and Nordstrom packages shipped today. I have a problem!

  4. At my last school (VC!), we did meal registries for the mommas that went on maternity leave. I thought it was such a cool idea! Just curious, what has been one of your maternity meal favorites?

    1. We are so so appreciative of ALL the meals. I can't say what is a favorite. We've had yummy roast and meatloaf that were just comfort foods. We got two different cold pastas (a shrimp with goat cheese and a southwest style chicken) that were both recipes I had never tried and loved. Some meals have a muffin for the next morning or fruit as a mid day snack. Some have yummy desserts. All are fantastic!

  5. Sounds like you had the best mail day ever with those packages!! So many great goodies :) :)
