. . . for Lauren and Lauren: High Five for Friday

March 14, 2013

High Five for Friday

shirt: old navy   pants: H&M maternity  shoes: target

1. I had thought I'd wear a lot of belted shirts in the early pregnancy stage but due to the fact that the majority of my shirts don't fit my upper half, this is the first time. 

2.  One of my students asked me in all seriousness, "So when are we going to name your baby?"  I had to break it to her that I wasn't really going to let my class choose a name.  (If you remember their first suggestion was Zorro.) 



3.  I feel like the only recipes I post about are desserts.  I swear I eat dinner too.  I made these this week for our small group and they were SO good.  Of course Chris said they were one of the best desserts he's ever had.  


4.  After many comments on this post I thought I definitely had an idea that was going to make me rich.  Turns out someone has thought of pretty much the same thing.  Thank you Allison for sharing this with me.  If it wasn't $90 I'd buy it and put it on my bed. 


5. I'm was so excited to get some fabric that I ordered from fabric.com.  I love the colors! I am planning on using the elephant fabric for a crib skirt and maybe curtains.  


This week has felt quite long, so I am very happy it is Friday! Hope you have a great weekend!

Faith said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Omg! That's amazing someone thought of it too! :)

That dessert looks amazing! I want some now.

Too funny that your students thought they were going to name her. Zorrro is awful, lol.

The elephant fabric is adorable.

Agreed, this week was super long. Hope you have a nice weekend!

Denise said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Enjoy your weekend.

Feel your pain on the button up shirts. I actually had a stash of shirts that for one reason or the other over the years I accidently purchased too large so in my mind I thought I'll keep them for pregnancy.....yeah, well, those shirts don't even fit! Those bars look yummy! Happy weekend.

Allison said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I love that your class came up with Zorro...you really should give in and just let them name your baby. Haha. And I was sad to ruin your dream of becoming rich from your invention!

LEIGH said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha! OMG! I can't believe they make that raft! That is awesome! I have been belting my button downs and loving it! It's a good way to go when you can. I specifically like to do it when I'm wearing a sweater over it. It brings shape back to my body...

Betty said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Oh my goodness...look at that float! I still think your mattress is a great idea. :) And I love that your class is getting so excited about your baby as well (are you sure you don't want to name your baby Zorro? Ha!). Have a great weekend!

Casey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

I hate it when I "invent" something only to find out someone else stole my idea before me. The last time was when I invented the hands free dog leash. A quick google search led me to see someone had already made it :(

Super cute fabric!

Leslie Maxey said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That float is awesome! And those squares look phenomenal! I'm going to need some pronto

Brianne Bracco said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Just bought a pair of green skinnies! Love what you put together with them! And how cool is that inflatable cut out belly bed?! I think I may need one for my post pizza or cupcake days! Haha :)

Still lovin the elephants :)

Kristin said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

My chambray shirt is kinda boxy so maybe I should try the belting too. I mean, I won't look as cute as you with the lil' bump, but still lol

I love that elephant fabric, so adorable! Those chess squares look delicious! And what do you mean, you don't want to name your baby Zorro?? Haha

Susannah said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Haha. I love that your kiddos thought they'd be naming the baby. That's adorable. I don't think Zorro's too bad of a name. ;-)

I also really love that fabric you picked out.

Jessica @ Lovely Little Things said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

And what do you mean...you don't like the name Zorro?! Especially for a girl...;)

Oh my gosh it would be hilarious if you could incorporate the students' name picks somehow - ours tried to name my co teacher's baby ALFONSO! The student that suggested it said it was a "strong" name like his! =)

Adrienne Clark said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

Those bars look to DIE FOR, so I might have to try making them during my Spring Break. Haha.

Dang it, of course someone came up with it already. :\ Oh well, maybe you'll come up with something else.

Happy Friday!

Rachel @lifeasMrs said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

can you help me figure out how many yards for curtains? i drove myself crazy today on fabrics.com and googleing and ended up just ordering premade curtains for her nursery on etsy. But I still need to make curtains for all the rest of the house! i am a lil slow when it comes to the math dept ;) and ps that tummy thing is genius! you know what i've just been doing though? I take my *stupid* $75 snoogle i bought and roll it up in a circle.. it makes it so comfy to sleep on my belly.

Kristine Foley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

LOVE the elephant fabric! Just saw it as curtains in Sawyers room over at Little Miss Momma's! SO CUTE!!!

Alyssa @ Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That's so cute how your students want to name the baby. Why in the world wouldn't you want a baby named Zorro? Haha. The fabric you got is so cute, can't wait to see what you do with it!

Ashley said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

That cut out thing always makes me nervous. I'm not really sure sure. I think it was always just so uncomfortable for me because my belly was SO big!!

These squares look delicious! And I love the belted shirt on you!
