Friday Favorites

Happy Friday friends! This has felt like the longest week, but I'm working from home today and then one more week at work before I'm on maternity leave! No doubt next week will crawl by as we patiently await the arrival of Baby Girl! We have a few tentative plans for this weekend, but the weather isn't looking too promising so we'll see what we end up getting up to! 
Here are a few of my favorite things from this week!

      I mentioned in my Amazon Prime Day post that we purchased the WaterPik and oh my gosh have we loved using it these last few days. We both agree that it feels like we're leaving the dentist's office without having to suffer through going to the dentist! They come in 6 different colors, but unfortunately the white one is out of stock right now. 
      The folks at Batiste sent me their new Dry Conditioner to test out. It's the first one they've put out and is exclusively at Ulta, but it's supposed to help your dry ends get moisture without looking greasy. Different from dry shampoo, you don't want to get this anywhere near your roots, you want to target the middle to ends of your hair and see it work it's magic. I've mentioned that the ends of my hair have been particularly dry this summer and this has definitely helped liven them up a bit. 
      We finally put up our Gallery Wall in the living room! The set came with 9 frames, we used 6 in the living room and the other 3 in the nursery for prints that I bought from Etsy. The sizing of the frames is 8 x 8 - I purchased the prints through shutterfly and they have that size available so it was really simple to fit in the frame. As for the hanging process itself - Gary said it could not have been easier. I'm not kidding when I say that entire thing took 15 minutes. The reason it was so easy...this gives you a full template to align everything and then all you have to do is put the nail through the proper spot on the paper and hang the frames! Could not be happier with how it looks! 
      I know that the Nordstrom Sale has been all over the place, but I'm not a card holder so with today being the first day of public access, I finally get to shop for a few things. A few years ago I scored my amazing trench coat for under $100 - I still wear it and probably will for years to come! I also stock up on leggings and a few other goods. I've got my eye on these studded mules in the grey suede and these Zella Leggings that help to keep everything in place! This BP reversible scarf is under $20 and I know I will get so much wear out of it come the fall and winter! You can't have enough scarves up here! Looks like the wide brimmed hats are pushed to the side, because these baker boy hats are everywhere - this one is under $20 and it's in a dark olive - one of my favorite colors for Fall! Did you guys buy anything from the sale?
      Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

      5. LAST WEEK OF WORK OH MY GOODNESSSS!!! I can not believe it!! Everyone will tell you to soak up this time and enjoy it and it's completely impossible when you are so nervous/excited for your life to change, so just know that. I'm so excited for you!! (And that gallery wall is perfection!)

      9. I ordered another pair of Zella leggings from the sale and I'm waiting on those to come in...I was bold and went with the red ones haha! So not like me! I love the gallery wall--I've got frames coming in, too, to create a gallery wall in our living room. I love the symmetry of yours!

      13. Your gallery wall is gorgeous! I want to put one up somewhere in our living room since I love the one in my office so much, but we don't have any blank walls! I'm thinking of moving some stuff around eventually, though. Happy weekend, girl!

      15. Love the bike photo - a bike like hat (must have a basket and leather seat) is on my bucket list! The brand here is Pashley and they cost a fortune but would last a lifetime! Love your gallery wall - some beautiful photos - will you now keep as is or add photos of baby? Love your hat and scarf too - v English country ;) Best of luck with the final leg at work - getting excited for you! Looking forward to your updates - have a great weekend! J xx

      18. I got moto leggings in olive and a pricey cardigan I wanted to hate so I could return but I love it and I won't.

      19. Yay for being on maternity leave soon. That hat is so cute, and I like the green color. I'm not a card holder either but there are lots of fun things available at Nordstrom.

      21. Oh my gosh, the countdown is on! I am so excited for you and the arrival of your little lady! I got the frame set after you posted it and have yet to order prints, but now I will be uploading and ordering from Shutterfly this weekend ;) Hope it stays nice and you have a great weekend! XO

      22. I love your gallery wall. I keep thinking about doing one in our breakfast nook, but I haven't figured out what I want to do yet. This is gorgeous though... so I need to get after it! I'm not a Nordstrom card holder either. I think I'm skipping the sale though I missed a really good sale (and ebates bonus) with Matches, and I'm kicking myself... so maybe I should check it out. ;)

      23. I can't believe you just have one week left before maternity leave!! So exciting! I love your gallery all!

      24. I've been seeing that Steve Madden studded mules a lot lately, and I can't blame people. It's so adorable indeed. I guess its time for me to get a pair of those too!

      25. Is the water flosser hard to use? My hygenist recommended I get one, but I don't really get how it works, haha! And love that gallery wall - looks great!

      26. Your gallery wall looks so good!!! I meant to get the water pik and sent Chris your link to see what he thought...and then I forgot to order it until it was sold out. Now the price is so much more. BOOO! I ordered the Zella leggings when I was pregnant to wear them PP and I lived in those things, and still plan to again this fall! They are so amazing! I was a little disappointed with my order. My peplum top was about three sizes too big (even though they recommended it was true to size) and my pink jack came in looking way more orange in person. Sigh.
