Lots of things happening over here, the addition is moving along and we’re making final decisions about the ceiling and flooring before Craig gets started on that next week. Tile arrives soon along with our vanity (check out our bathroom inspo here). Oddly enough I have more energy now than I’ve had my entire pregnancy. I remember feeling panicky because everyone kept telling me how I’d feel normal again in the second trimester and I didn’t, I felt like shit. It hasn’t been until the last few weeks that I’ve regained energy and I am SO grateful. It’s the final countdown! Lots of great links from the week, wishing all of you a great weekend.
If you’re looking for something to buy, try, read, share or pin, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the best of the week…
