friday favorites


What a week...5 more days of school until our fall break, and I think the kids are ready...I KNOW I'm ready!  My body is tired, Judy is daily planning her escape methods and they don't feel very traditional.  I'm convinced she wants out.  And for good reason.  I'm sure she doesn't want to be called Judy anymore.  Especially if she turns out to be Jude!

If this pregnancy/labor/delivery is anything like Claire's, Judy should be ready to make her entrance mid-November.  Even though my due date is mid-December.  I am having a couple health issues with her, so we shall see... so yes, I'll be spending my weekend getting ready for the wee babe's arrival.  And watching Scandal.

And hopefully catching up on blogging!  I had a slow blog week (thanks to those who reached out to make sure I was ok!!  I am!!), but I'm hoping to be back on my game next week!  However, I was able to read several of my favorites, and here are the ones that really stood out to me...

haha...I know, the pic made me crack up! YAY for Friday! I plan on resting a lot this weekend, but also getting a lot done! It makes sense in my head!! Haha! Have a lovely weekend! Is your phone working? May need a text buddy during my breaks. ;)

Melissa Camacho said...

that totally makes sense. ;) My phone is working... the screen is just shattered. I have insurance on it, so I'll probably be getting a new phone at some point this weekend. but YES it does work, so text away my dear! <3

Any weekend involving Scandal sounds like a great weekend to me! Hope you get the rest you need and that Judy stays put for just a little while longer! :)

Oh mama, I know your exhaustion! I hope that you get a lot of prep done this weekend, and that you also get to put your feet up and rest. It's tiring work cooking these babes until they're done & ready to hit eject... pretty exciting that it could be soon!! xo

That picture is hilarious. I hope you get plenty of rest on your fall break! I need to get back into watching Scandal. Our wifi hasn't wanted to cooperate when I'm on Netflix so I'm behind again.

Amy @ Set Free said...

Oh I just realized I didn't get to watch it at all! :(

Amy @ Set Free said...

Thank you! It's going...ok...my BP is getting high, so I'm trying to find ways to cut back. :( I have no idea how to do that! So thank you for your prayers!

Amy @ Set Free said...

Me too...so bummed I didn't get to watch it this weekend! :(

Amy @ Set Free said...

I know...I'm getting excited! But still have so much to do!! Ahhhh!! If history repeats itself, this baby could be coming within the next 3-3.5 weeks! So.much.to.do still, but we'll figure it out!! :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

I got NO PREP done! Got so busy with other things...kinda stressing me out, but I have next week off from school, so hopefully I'll be able to get a lot done! And yes...I'm getting super excited!

Amy @ Set Free said...

Thank you!! I can't wait either...and I will always include anything that includes Gavin! :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

Thank you! I'm feeling more rested, but definitely not more ready for baby...I got nothing done in that area! Funny the difference between baby #1 and #2...kinda winging it this time around! With Claire I feel like the room was all ready by the time I was 6 mos prego! :)

Amy @ Set Free said...

Haha...the pic made me laugh too, had to include it! Counting down the days until fall break, seriously can't come soon enough! :)
