Happy weekend. Honestly we have nothing planned but cleaning, organizing and working. As a chronic procrastinator it is taking every fiber of my being to finish up almost a month’s worth of work ahead of time, but I know I’ll be happy I did. Hospital bags are packed and baby clothes are clean, folded and put away, the rest I just have to let it go (however I will continue to clean like a maniac everyday until I go into labor, haha!). Hope all of you have a great weekend.

Why people don’t like it when you try to change for the better.
This shop is new to me but they have some great brands and their sale right now is so good (use code SALE25 for an EXTRA 25% off sale). White & Warren cashmere is marked down more than I’ve ever seen. Sustainable cashmere brand Naadam has some pieces on sale. I ordered this white cotton dress. They even have Staub cast iron ovens on sale! Another cool feature of the site, you can shop by cause, including sustainable, organic, fair trade, philanthropic and more. (J)
