Friday Favorites

 
I can't believe it's our last weekend here in Buffalo. It's been a glorious vacation and I'm so happy we decided to take a much needed and well-deserved vacation. We will be busy celebrating Elizabeth turning two this weekend. Her actual birthday isn't until get end of the month but since our family is up here in Buffalo, I wanted a special party for her.  So here's this weeks favorites! 1. Etsy for Birthday Invitations Elizabeth's party theme is The Little Mermaid and I knew I could count on Etsy for invitations. I love buying one, downloading the invitation, and then just sending to Walgreens for printing. Makes life easy peasy lemon squeezy. I actually had a tough time deciding which invite to go with because the options were endless! 
 
2. Baby Hugs
 
I love all things baby -- knowing that Katherine is our last baby, I am soaking up everything. I hold her a little bit longer every night before bed, I give her extra kisses, and I try to capture special moments between us. Her latest thing is hugging and I am enjoying every second of it. I'm starting to notice she'll intentionally start to hug me after nursing her and it warms my heart!
 
 

3.  Working Out

With being in Buffalo and having my parents around, I've been able to hit up the gym 4-5 times a week. I haven't been eating all that healthy with being here, so spending a little bit of time at the gym in the morning has helped to balance things out. I love that I have access to any LA Fitness and don't have to worry about getting a guest pass at a local gym.

4. Fresh Air

Living in Florida, I don't spend a lot of time outside. Actually I don't spend anytime outside. It's just too damn hot. The weather in Florida has been wonderful -- some days are warmer than others but it has only rained one day in the two weeks we've been here. Elizabeth has enjoyed being outside too -- we've visited the community pool, going to thr park, and yesterday afternoon she ran through the sprinkler. She loved it! 

5. Baby Clothes

Thanks to Instagram and Facebook, I'm always slammed with advertisements for the cutest kids and baby clothes. With being on maternity leave, I unfortunately can't buy the majority of what I see. But this adorable outfit came across my Facebook feed this morning and I just had to buy it for K. Plus I'm loving black and white clothes lately. 

 
I hope you all have a great weekend! I'll be back Monday with a recap from her birthday party!
