Friday Favorites 4

I'm linking up with Katie again today to share a few of my favorite things from this week!

I bought a few prints from Recipe for Crazy during a flash sale this spring, and finally got them ready to go up in the girls' rooms this week.  The Fierce print is going up in Baby C's room, and the Brave print is going in Miss A and Little J's room.

Since the arrival of Baby C, we have been super spoiled by friends.  Often when our friends have come to meet our new little lady, they've also brought some sweet gifts and lots of food.  Seriously, I think the best way to take care of a family with a new baby is with food.  A couple of my former co-workers stopped by this week and brought the sweet sisters frame above.  I can't wait to get a picture of my three girls in there!  They also brought these cool Sticker Doodle books for Miss A and Little J.  The girls think they're awesome (and I agree... they're great for keeping the girls busy with something quiet when I'm feeding the baby).  They also brought lunch, with lots of fresh fruit and veggies, and left the extra with us.  So thankful for those two, and everyone else who has kept us fed over the past few weeks!

Baby C's announcements also came this week.  In the digital world I know it is a little silly to send out birth announcements, but I love sending (and receiving) real mail.  I ordered these postcard style birth announcements through Pear Tree Greetings, and I am really happy with how they turned out!

Baby C and I also got a night out at the Minnesota Children's Museum this week.  The museum hosted a happy hour for the Smart Play Ambassadors, and it was really nice to sit and chat with other adults, while enjoying some good food and my first glass of wine since late November.  The MCM has so many fun things going on, and the staff is so great to work with.  I'm so thankful I've been able to be a part of the Smart Play Ambassadors program this year!  Baby C and I have another night out planned for tonight, this time heading to Cafe Latte with a friend.  I can't wait!


  1. Awwww I love that pic of Baby C on the birth announcement - adorable!

  2. Sending out birth announcement is not silly at all, I did that with my first baby last year :)
