. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Weekend randoms

Weekend randoms



I got this dress at JCPenney a few weeks ago for $15 and love that it is a stretchy, comfy non-maternity dress I know I will wear after the baby!

I imagine reading lots of posts about Memorial Day weekends being spent on beaches or outside grilling with lots of friends.  I can say mine was quite the opposite but it was wonderful.  Every night this weekend Chris and I were home, on the couch or in bed, watching movies.  We've been so busy lately that it was perfect!

We did run a few errands on Sunday and I found these shoes at DSW.   Thanks to a $10 coupon they were only $8. 


I also spent some time organizing things in the nursery.  I took apart the diaper cake we got and I loved putting away these tiny little diapers.  I'm sure some time in the future I won't enjoy diapers but right now I love it!


I also washed the huge amount of hand me downs we got a few weeks ago.  I can honestly say folding and sorting these baby girl clothes was one of the best things I've ever done.  


And I plan on ending this long weekend by watching the Bachelorette tonight! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!

While this weekend was more exciting for me than most, you're not gonna see a 40 picture beach/picnic recap lol. 3 years of blogging and I still can't do a proper recap compared to some others I've seen.

Anyway, your weekend seems delightful! You have so much to look forward to :)

That dress is so cute! It's always great when you can wear a non-maternity item. I didn't have that much to wear when I was pregnant with my first 2 boys.

Aww hooray for folding and sorting baby clothes!! Fun! :)

Nicole @ Haute Runner said... Best Blogger TipsBest Blogger Templates

You have the best dresses in your wardrobe!

I remember taking apart a diaper cake. So many elastics! My cat was going crazy!

I loved washing and folding baby clothes. I still enjoy it to this day. I found hanging everything (except pjs and plain onesies) by size was really helpful in making sure that everything got worn and things didn't get forgotten.
