Things That Make Me Do A Vicki "Woo-Hoo!"


+I can't think of a better way to start another edition of my Friday favorites than with this picture of Steph and her beautiful baby girl who was born yesterday. Paisley is here, Paisley is here!! I can't believe it either.

It was funny because we were actually texting the night prior right when she started getting contractions and as it turns out, we were able to talk to each other here and there almost right up until she delivered...true.story! I was so shocked and give her major props because I have a feeling when my time comes I will be freaking out a little (OK, a lot) more and will be completely ignoring my phone! Her mom was so sweet and also kept me in the loop by texting me her progress and sending me pictures. It definitely makes up (a tiny tiny bit) for not physically being there! Not to mention, it completely put my mind more at ease about labor and delivery just listening to what she was experiencing and how it went for her (obviously all labors are different, I'm just generally speaking here.) 

Steph was such a trooper during the whole thing, from what I know, and is doing great. To say we are are so happy for her and Beau is a big understatement! She's going to be an amazing mama!

PS: Last night I received a huge flood of friend requests on my personal Facebook page. I'm talking over 30 in a couple hours. If any of you are reading who sent me one, please don't take it personally but I have decided the past few months to keep my Facebook page just for personal friends and family. I assure you that you aren't missing anything, and hope you don't take it personally! I also have my blog's Facebook page here.

+I also wanted to share about one of my favorite Facebook shops (you can find her on instagram as well, here) that has the most adorable personalized baby items because I've had so many people ask about this picture I posted on my instagram.

I'm in love...I'm in love.

All of them are from Simply Made with Love

Leah, the owner, has a bunch of designs you can pick from for bibs, burp cloths, and outfits. We are actually thinking about doing a giveaway next month with some items, if some of you would be interested.

+Right after hating on maternity clothes the other day, of course I found some really great essentials the other day from a bunch of different places. I plan to do a post in the near future with all the things that I've found and love!

+It's been a long week so I don't have much else to share, but I am pretty excited to get this weekend started (who isn't?) because we are hanging out with some of our friends tonight and then making a day trip to Cincinnati tomorrow to hit up IKEA and meet some friends afterwards! So excited! 

Happy weekend, all!

  1. May the force be with you at IKEA. I went while pregnant and literally almost died from how crowded and hot it was. Just plan for lots of breaks :)

  4. So happy for Steph and Beau :) I have been wanting to make a trip to IKEA myself but I haven't been able to talk myself into it (pregnant). If you have time and IF you feel like it, you should stop at the Premium Outlets in Monroe (the exits are 10 miles apart...you'd get to the outlets before Ikea). I'd go to IKEA first and see how much room you have left in the car ;)

  7. Awe yea I am so happy for her!!! Idk if she has posted anything on IG because earlier this week my phone froze up and I was clicking the screen and all of a sudden it started working again and unfriended her so I had to resend the request but considering she has been a little busy she hasn't accepted it and I have been dying to look at her IG pics. I am so happy you were able to experience it from afar and rest assured that you will be just fine in a couple months when it is your turn. Speaking of, all that monogram stuff is so cute!!! I love it!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

  10. Please do a post on your maternity clothing finds! I'm 18 weeks along and am having trouble finding cute maternity clothes - even Target has let me down (booo). Have fun at IKEA, I was there a few weeks ago. My favorite part is the area where they have mock set ups of kitchens!
