Friday Five

Happy Friday loves! I am happy to finally get back in the swing of blogging regularly. The weather here in NC has been far from great so I have been spending a lot of time "nesting" around the house. I can't wait to share all the major home updates and the finished nursery. For today I am sharing just a few things that I am loving this week.

{One} Favorite room purchase. Rugs USA had an amazing sale on rugs after Christmas and I was able to snag a few for our home. I always love oversized rugs for room but unfortunately so does everyone else as those sizes are the first to sell out! I settled on a few medium size rugs including a simple grey one for the nursery. I was very impressed with their quality and customer service. I think I got three rugs for under $300 which is a great steal!

{Two} New Detox drink? My diet these days consists of donuts more than detox. It doesn't stop me from keeping up with the newest health trends. I found this article about using Pink Himalayan Salt in an energy/recovery drink on Lauren Conrad's blog. Pink Himalayan Salt has been popping up everywhere and hope to give it a try soon.

{Three} Currently Craving. Cream Cheese Square Bars. We had these at my family baby shower a few weeks ago. They are so simple to make and so delicious.

{Four} Beautiful Baubles. Shopping for jewrely is more my speed these days. Loving long pendant necklaces as a way to spice up my plain sweaters and dresses. This adorable pendant from Anthro wold be great in the spring as well!

{Five} Let It Snow? Winter Storm Jonas has hit NC today. Everything has really shut down in preparation for the impending snow/sleet/rain. We are expected to get 2-6 inches of snow and ice over the next two days. Looking forward to spending quality time catching up on TV shows, thank you notes and maybe a bit of cleaning. Hoping not to go stir crazy!!

  8. Those cream cheese bars look so yummy. Unfortunately, I've been partaking in more donuts than detox myself. My biggest pregnancy cravings are fresh fruit and...unlimited amounts of sweets.
