Monday Morning Musings | No. 305

Nesting and all the things…

Hello and happy fresh new week to you! I hope your Monday is off to a fabulous start. We had such a wonderful weekend full of festivities and fun. We are still bouncing around a bit as the construction at our house continues, but we got the chance to spend some time together this weekend all under one roof and were even able to make some serious strides with unpacking and a few other house projects, including getting the nursery lighting installed (these are the sconces we picked!) and the laundry room cabinets were installed, which was thrilling!

Plus, my best friend Betsy and I share a birthday weekend, so we went out to celebrate her on Saturday night and then had a big family breakfast with my family on Sunday morning to celebrate my day. Truly couldn’t ask for anything better.

Also, I have to say, besides the cabinets which are a total DREAM, my birthday gift highlights were a car wash subscription and a crockpot… if that isn’t the most adult birthday of all time, I don’t know what is. I’ve already made a whole list of recipes for my new crockpot to try this week! Also, I feel like with soon-to-be two kids, this is a definitely rite of passage.

OH! And to round out my birthday on Sunday, I found an adorable Pottery Barn Kid’s table on Facebook Marketplace for $75 and spent the evening setting up a little craft station for Laurens. The dream!

Anyway, I am praying we make some serious progress on the house this week and that we can continue to get settled in and clean up before baby comes. Because, as Laurens keeps telling me, “It’s kinda dirty in here”! You guys, toddlers are savage, ha!

Now that you have the full update, let’s get into the five things I’m loving…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few fun things I’m loving right now…


Easy & Breezy

Is it a nightgown? Is it a dress? Is it the perfect thing to wear when it’s 100 degrees?! YES. I just ordered this and cannot wait to put it on.

I’ve been wanting to try fun sneakers, I’m honestly not a huge sneaker girl (aside from these for all the walks), but I couldn’t pass the pink ones up! Fun, right?

$12 Bow Clip

Speaking of fun accessories, I also added this bow clip to cart so fast! I love wearing my hair in a clip, so I thought this would be a fun way to jazz it up a bit.

Summer Pjs

I had forgotten about how much I love Lake’s kids shorts pajamas! When we moved I found two pairs in the back of Laurens dresser and praise the Lord, they still fit! Seriously the best summer pjs. Plus, they are just so darn cute!

Mother Goose

I fell in love with this little Etsy print a few months ago and I’m going to have it printed and framed for the kids’ bathroom. It just makes me smile every time I see it… two little chicks!
