Happy Weekend: 10 Links I Love


My plans for the weekend? Ideally, I’d like to have a baby. Jack is still holding out and I’m beginning to think we’ll end up having to schedule an induction next week. As my mother-in-law’s doctor told her when she was having one of her kids, “baby come when baby ready.” So true. Regardless of Jack’s plans to enter the world, my parents are coming into town on Sunday, which will be nice! We had to skip our annual trip to New England to visit them this year since I was so pregnant and not interested in making the cross-country trip, so it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen them. If you pray, would you pray for a safe and speedy delivery for me? I know it’s only a matter of days at this point!

Okay, enough about me. How about some fun links for you to check out?

    Praying for a speedy delivery! Gonna have to try the pumpkin spice latte recipe. Tried one last week that wasn’t very good. Helps to know this one comes recommended. Loving the lookbook idea. Something to file away for later.

    I too had to schedule on induction date but my little one decided to come on his own a week after my due date! I know how stressful those last days before baby can be. Praying that a peace will wash over you and that you are able to enjoy these last days with the hubby before your sweet baby boy arrives. Also praying for a healthy and happy baby and mamma!

    I went 2 1/2 weeks past my due date, so I feel for you and know how rough it can be going overdue. I was terrified of being induced, and desperately wanted a natural labor, but I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Jack will be here exactly when he is meant to be. I will be praying for a safe labor and delivery, and a healthy baby boy!

    Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ Isaiah 41:10
