Recent Loves & We're All Moved In! :)

Wow! What a busy few weeks it has been. We are FINALLY moved into our new place! I was walking around the house today while my husband had some friends over, and I was literally brought to tears with how blessed we are. This house is incredible. I love it, and I'm so thankful God chose this for us! While we will probably be living out of boxes for a little while, I'm so grateful to finally start nesting. I finally have my own place! There's so many possibilities here. I can't wait to paint the walls, get some furniture, and start making it our own. The next few weeks are going to be insanely busy. We have a baby shower every weekend for the next three weekends. I can't wait! I'm finally at the 35 week mark, so it will be exciting to start putting these gifts into our little boy's room. It's overwhelming to think he will be here in about a month! I just hope we can get the house in a semi-organized condition by the time he arrives. :) 

Thanks to Christmas/Birthday gift cards and TJ Maxx, I've made some pretty great purchases lately, and I've been excited to share them on here! 

Recent Loves

1. I FINALLY purchased the iPad Air I've been saving for! I saved all my Christmas and birthday money for this, and I was so excited to finally get it. It's been so great! I love bringing it to work and keeping it in my purse. It's awesome for watching movies, and the battery life is fabulous! 

2. Sonia Kashuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick in Sparkling Sands: This stuff. If you don't have it yet, run to Target right now and grab it. You will NOT be disappointed. I had heard that it was a great dupe for Benefit's Watts Up (which I love!) so I gave it a try. It's only $10.99 and HUGE for the price. It gives the most natural glow and the perfect highlight. I can't say enough good about this stuff! 

3. Jonathan Adler glasses from TJ Maxx- Oh my goodness. At $2.99, I couldn't pass these up! There were only two in my store, so I am going to keep a look out for more. They are super cute and just the most fun shade of hot pink! I've been really lucky at TJ's lately. I even scored a giant Ralph Lauren purse (normally $248) for $49! It is giant and holds all my stuff, plus my iPad with plenty of room to spare. Such a great buy! 

I will be posting pictures this week of all of my plans for the new house. I think I've finally decided on a few of the paint colors, so will be sharing that soon! :) I'm excited to post all about this new journey!
