Weekend Bliss


sleep via stardustandsequins via ffffound

Aaaahhh...I'm so glad the weekend is here! Did you get to see the Royal wedding?! I ended up waking up around 7am on Friday because I was so exhausted the day before. Mostly every TV channel was covering the Royal wedding event anyway, so I really didn't miss alot. I finally got to see the stunning wedding gown designed by Alexander McQueen creative director Sarah Burton and it was absolutely gorgeous!

Other than that, I'm taking a staycation for a week to enjoy relaxation at home. Whooo Hooo! Have a nice and restful weekend, my friends!

I took two days off from work to spend time with my little man. Check out his new haircut! I tried bringing him to my hairstylist the other day but he just didn't want anyone to touch his hair. So I decided to do it myself. Gooooogled on "How to cut a boy's hair" and trimmed away. What do you guys think?! Thank goodness for YouTube!

My hubby and I are thinking of moving closer to both of our parents house. We may be working on it before the baby is born which will be less than four months! You know you think I'm crazy...maybe just a tiny little bit crazy?!

Projects out the door, organized some things at home, dirty dishes are done...

Everytime I finish my list of goals for the week, I celebrate with chocolate-covered strawberries and a movie on Netflix. Oh, it's just the little things...

Happy Friday!!!
