Pregnancy Update: 35 Weeks

I'm in the home stretch! 4 weeks to go and I'm experiencing so many emotions. Of course I'm so excited for our little girl to get here, but I'm also nervous about being a mom of two, and anxious about getting everything done before she arrives. Here's my latest (and probably last) pregnancy update, for 35 weeks.

{I'm actually only 34 weeks in this photo, but I didn't get a picture taken this week.}

$10 at Target: Hints of Fall

I know I said I was taking a break, but sometimes just a day is all I need to feel refreshed. I love the $10 at Target linkup that BeckyRachel, and Tif put together every month, and since I did indeed find a couple of fun things at Target this month, I wanted to share them.

While I can’t get behind the Pumpkin Spice Latte, there are many other fall things that I’m ready to embrace. I love making my home feel a bit cozier with yummy scented candles, like this caramel latte flavored one. Also, I’m excited to add more fall colors, like burgundy and olive green, to my wardrobe and makeup stash. I figure that painting my nails a lovely dark burgundy can help me welcome fall even when it’s 90 degrees outside.

The candle was $5.99 and the nail polish was $3.99, so I managed to keep my total right around $10. Win!

With $10 "fun money" to Target I decided to go for a couple of things that would add hints of fall to my life. Click through for details on what I bought.

I wanted to pop in and let you know that I'm taking a little break for the next few days. Life has been especially busy lately, and sometimes I am guilty of putting blog life before real life (especially when it comes to the not-so-fun things on my to do list). However, it's starting to catch up to me, so I'm taking some time to rest and focus on some of the things I need to do at home.

I hope you have a great week and I'll be back next Monday, if not before. Thanks for being my readers and friends!
