Quote of the Week {Weekend Wrap Up}

This past weekend was so busy yet full of fun!  Scott and I kicked the weekend off with one of the most perfect rehearsal dinners I have ever been to. The countless toasts that were given were so heartfelt and brought the entire group to tears.  I have never heard more truer words spoken about two genuine people.

 Saturday, we took time before more wedding festivities to finish up all of Baby G's laundry and handle a few items on the "to do" list.

Trapping myself in the laundry room with these tiny and precious outfits isn't too bad!
All other laundry items I have no desire to handle! 

Next! It was time to celebrate our dear and lifelong friend John!  We could not be happier for him and Jessica!! I hope they are finally relaxing and soaking up lots of sun in St. Lucia!

Scott and I with the groom!!! YOU DID IT!!

Scott, Baby G, and I...we are just under 3 weeks to go!!!
My handsome brother and amazing and beautiful "Sweet Mama" 
Of course there was a brother- sister moment! 
So many friends that I haven't seen in years were there! Seeing my gorgeous friend Amy was total icing on the cake!!!! Loved catching up and getting mommy tips from her! 

Sunday, ALL DAY LONG, I kidnapped Mama and we tackled ALL of the last minute things for Baby G!  After the glider arrives today and the "take home" outfits hopefully arrive end of the week we are offically set and just waiting on this little one to completely change our lives forever! 
I soooooo cannot wait! 

As we count down the days and try to remain patient I leave you with this quote!

Quote of the Week {Weekend Wrap Up}

Is the weekend really over already??  I swear they get shorter and shorter!  This weekend our good friends Brooke and Isaac came in from Charlotte to spend the day with us.  We had an amazing lunch at one of our favorite local spots The Root in Elon their little fella, Gavin, once again completely stole the show and melted our hearts! Is he not just precious as can be??

And for the first time I think ever on the blog and for that matter any social media outlet I thought I would share my "weekly" bump pic! OK, so I might not snap them weekly, but we have a fairly decent collection of the ever growing bump!  I have officially "dropped" with just 4 weeks to go!

Sunday I did a little more nesting! I took inventory of Baby G's library!  Let me just say, if you are expecting a little one you have to of course get the classics, but also promise me you will get "The Wonderful Things You Will Be"!  I cannot WAIT to read this one to Baby G! It's a total fave of mine! The illustrations are just presh!

This weekend we had warmer temps reaching almost 70° however, the clouds were still hanging around.  Clouds or not I just couldn't resist a colorful Sunday afternoon snack!  Avocado with a splash of lime juice and strawberries are one of my favorite snacks on warm spring and summer days!

Wishing you all a beautiful week! Now let's all throw a little confetti!

Fashion Fix Friday {Choker Necklace}

This week we are talking about a trend that I totally was obsessed with in the early 90's!  
Choker necklaces!  
I swear, give me a cameo choker necklace and call it a day!! I loved them and STILL love this look.  I am super excited to see them popping up again.  This time around I might just let the cameo be, while I obsess the look of the ribbon choker.

Here are a few looks to get you inspired!

Are you lovin'?  Are you totally stoked to see this trend return?

I think  it's time we Shop the Look!

Easter Decor

At the very moment that March 1st arrives the Easter decorations are coming out!  During the last couple of weeks before Baby G is due to arrive I want to make sure the house is all taken care of and all I have to do is bring this sweet little baby into the world! (That should be super simple righttt...EEK)  So, the wheels are turning on how I will decorate The Gaither household.  One thing for sure that will make its reprise  will be my DIY Easter Eggs from last year.

 Another MUST will be tulips! One thing I absolutely adore is fresh flowers in our home.

Snow Day Nesting

Did you miss me?  I decided to go MIA yesterday to enjoy yet another snow day and spend the day "nesting" and prepping for Baby G! I was able to get almost all of the little one's blankets, bibs, onesies, bath towel hoodies and wash clothes washed and ready to go.  I am not a fan of clutter so I have been slowly adding a little at a time to the nursery.  I have to make sure things are super organized and have their "assigned" place before moving into the room. 

I also spent the evening (on Grammy commercial breaks) working on Thank You cards from our amazing baby showers. 

Next on the list, take home outfits and time to pack those hospital bags!

Any suggestions on what we should bring to the hospital or what we should skip on??

STYLED: The Look for Less

Happy Friday!  Can you believe they are calling for MORE snow AND ice??! I am almost certain Mr. Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow and proclaimed "There is no shadow to be cast! An early spring is my forecast!"  I guess that's what we get for leaving our weather fortunes up to a cute little groundhog!

On a brighter note I just scored you the ever gorgeous Kate Bosworth's look totaling up a price tag just shy of $5000 for less than $500!
I call this a win!
