The Best Parts

Happy Friday!  Hope you've had a fun week.  We had a really GREAT week at our house.

My hubby was on Spring Break so we relaxed, did some things out of our normal routine, filled out our NCAA brackets and CLOSED ON OUR NEW HOUSE!!  Hip, hip, HOORAY!  We've been house hunting since Fall and were thrilled to get all of our ducks in a row to close on St. Patrick's Day.  Looking forward to seeing some family this weekend, making plans to do some updates on the house & move in next month.

The best parts of my week were:

// 1 //
We rented a condo for the year when we moved to Indiana and pretty quickly started scoping out neighborhoods, schools, areas of town that we wanted to live in last Fall.  So it's really exciting that we were able to purchase an amazing home with tons of charm in an area of town that we love.  Can't wait to tell you more about it :)  We aren't in a huge hurry to move in because there are some projects we're hoping to tackle with the help of my dad before we invade the place.

That's a WRAP on my 36th Week
I'm wrapping up my 36th week of pregnancy and things are going well.  We're into the twice a week appointments which is always tricky with a toddler.  Luckily, Kevin usually works it out so he can be home with her which is super helpful.  My blood pressure has actually gone down (which is the opposite of what happened towards the end of my 1st pregnancy), my blood work all came back good and so we're just trucking along for the next few weeks.  My doctor said we could start talking about being induced at 38 weeks so our hospital bags are packed!!  See you soon little Fletcher.

LUCKY to Have You Dinner
We had an excellent St. Patrick's Day and squeezed in lots of rainbow goodness yesterday!  We ate delicious food and had a great day.  We're feeling extra lucky this year with all the exciting things going on at our house - new house, baby on the way and lots to look forward to.

I finished my Easter chalkboards, finished Olive's Easter basket and added some Spring touches to our house.  Nothing over the top, but it definitely feels like Spring.  We've also been enjoying a ridiculous amount of Easter candy - Cadbury eggs, jolly rancher jelly beans and chocolate :)

Our city just got a new Fresh Thyme Market and we're obsessed!  Have you ever heard of them?  They seem to be popping up all over the Midwest.  We got some coupons in the mail and headed in to check out their super sales for the week.  $0.88 for a pound of strawberries and the most delicious salt water taffy for $1.99/lb won us over.  We made two trips there this week to restock up on those items because we loved them so much.  The store is so bright and cheery and the employees are, too.  We picked up a fresh pizza for dinner and some other produce.  The store reminds me a lot of Trader Joes so I'm excited to familiarize myself with the place.  I'm also a HUGE fan of any store that goes out of their way to be sweet to kids.  They have a hidden tractor up at the registers and if kids point it out to the cashier they get a sucker.  We'll definitely be back :)

Be sure and check out my favorite posts from this week:
I hope you have a really great weekend!!
