The Happiest "Five On Friday" You Ever Did See

1. My hubby and I are thrilled to finally know the gender of our miracle baby.
It's amazing how much I love this little babe inside me. I knew I would have been happy whether it was a boy or a girl, but I am over the moon. We can finally call him or her by their name. Speaking of, we have the most perfect name that ever existed. I think that will actually be my favorite part about sharing the gender of our baby; telling everyone the name!
2. I received the best package from UPS yesterday,
That's right. My Bump Nest arrived. In the blogging world, this is THE pillow that you get while pregnant. After I get some good use out of it, I will be doing a review on this bad boy. In the meantime, I am utterly excited.
3. Today at 5 o'clock, I start a 2 week vacation.
Of course I will miss seeing my coworkers every day, but I am gosh darn excited for a two week break to A) prep baby's nursery, B) take a lot of naps, and 3) work on some Pinterest projects. Life is pretty sweet... but it's all due to God's grace. Anyways, I am pretty excited in this very moment.
4. No more school... ever again.
I'm still in a weird mind-frame where I keep thinking that I have schoolwork to do. However, I'm done. I have to keep reminding myself. It is such a beautiful thing. I doubt I will ever go back to school again. Mark my words, would ya?
5. Christmas is almost here!
Although I still have a few more gifts that need to be purchased, I am excited for the Christmas holiday. I think I may indulge in a few ton of Christmas movies. I could probably watch Elf every day during Christmas break and still never get tired of it.

  1. Its fun to follow along your pregnancy because I'm 15 weeks right now too! :) I ordered a bumpnest pillow right when I found out I was pregnant - and so far I love it. My only complaint is its pretty firm so I wake up with an earache almost every morning from sleeping on my ear so hard! Let me know what you think! :)

    1. Yea, we were so thrilled to find out the gender before Christmas so that we could have plenty of time to talk about the baby over the holidays with our closest family and friends. We will announce the gender on January 3 :)
