Happy Friday!

We've had a pretty chill week over here and have played with toy cars most of B's waking hours. I'm sure this weekend will be no different! He's obsessed! I've started thinking about putting up my Halloween decorations and it will probably happen in the next few days....I can't believe it's almost October! 

ONE // I love having my Scentsy warmer on in the colder months! Last year I got this pumpkin scent which I still melt and I found this apple one this year that I'm loving as well!

TWO // I keep finding cute Christmas crafts/decorations on Pinterest and it's making me want to skip over Halloween and Thanksgiving so I can get all the Christmas stuff out! I found this sign and this ornament this week and I want to make them!

THREE // My sister introduced me to Alexa's blog a couple years ago. She makes the best printables from LDS General Women's Conference (and General Conference) quotes! I'm going to have to remember to use them with lessons at church!

FOUR // I've come across these striped long sleeve tees and they look like they would be perfect under vests or with a plaid scarf!

What's up Wednesday {9/28/16}

Today I'm linking up with ShaySheaffer, and Mel for What's Up Wednesday!
What we're eating this week: Month of Crock Pot Dinners. I'm on week three, but you can start any time!

What I'm reminiscing about: What it feels like to not be pregnant! Haha I almost can't remember!

What I'm loving: The cooler weather, even though it's still in the 70's/80's.

What we've been up to: My husband has been working hard on B's Halloween costume and it's looking so good! B has been helping too! We are getting it done early with the baby coming and hoping that B doesn't destroy it before Halloween!

What I'm dreading: I am so done with going to the doctor. I know it needs to be done while pregnant but it doesn't get any easier for me...

What I'm working on: I have been totally slacking in the craft department, but I'm hoping to start working on some Christmas presents soon!

What I'm excited about: Becoming an aunt! My Sister-in-Law is two weeks ahead of me and could have her baby any time!

What I'm watching: Season 3 of Blacklist and Dancing with the Stars! I don't have a favorite yet on DWTS, but I'm always loving Whitney, Lindsey, and Derek!

What I'm reading: The O'Malley series- I'm on book 5 of 6. I'd highly recommend this series! It's very uplifting, with some romance mixed in!

What I'm listening to: Our nightly Netflix show...The Blacklist.

What I'm wearing: Anything comfortable and not hot!
^^35 Weeks

What I'm doing this weekend: I'll be listening to uplifting messages and council from the leaders of our church. It's called General Conference and anyone is welcome to watch it too!

What I'm looking forward to next month: Baby is coming!!

What else is new: Nothing I can think of!

What is your favorite fall recipe? I'm looking forward to making a pumpkin roll and lots of soups!

Virginia Safari Park

A couple Saturdays ago we took B to the Virginia Safari Park. To say he loved it would be an understatement! It was one of the places on our Virginia bucket list and it felt so good to be able to cross another thing off.
We heard about this place when we came to Natural Bridge a couple years ago and we knew B would love it when he was older. We bought a bucket of food so we could feed the animals from our car as we drove through the "safari". It was actually kind of scary feeding them at first because the llamas and ostriches were really aggressive! Even when we had our windows up, they would come and look inside our car to see if we had food!

Some of the animals would stick their heads SO FAR into cars to get food! It was crazy!

After the driving part, we walked around a petting zoo. B was really brave and petted the goats and kangaroo!

If you look really close you can see the baby kangaroo inside one of the mom's pouches!
Our favorite part of the entire thing was being able to feed the giraffes! The giraffe we are feeding still has another foot to grow!

We had so much fun and I thought it was better than a regular zoo!

Links I Love {11}

You know those weeks that start out with nothing and then the next thing you know, there is something everyday??? Well this week was like that! The good news is that I got a Christmas craft completed that I planned on doing last year but never had time for. I would post a picture but it might become a gift so I don't want to ruin that surprise! Before I share my links from the week I just wanted to mention that today I'm the featured blogger for High Five for Friday(H54F)! Be sure to check out Katie's, Tif's, and Della's awesome blogs!

^^Last weekend we visited a safari park and got to feed giraffes! It was so cool! More on that coming next week!

ONE // I've shared some other Piano Guys songs on here and I think they sound great! Well they just came out with a new song/YouTube video that will brighten any day and reassure you that everything will be okay!

TWO // I had some Kohl's rewards this month so we bought this adorable outfit for the new baby and picked up some new winter pajamas for B! He's always talking about monsters, so of course he picked those ones!

THREE // I have had my eye on these printed leggings for a year now and finally got them while they were on sale! I know I'll be getting lots of wear out of them this fall and winter!

FOUR // Hopefully you saw my Month of Crock Pot Dinners post from Monday and are enjoying an easy week of not cooking! I found this pumpkin drink recipe on Pinterest this week and it's also for the crock pot! I can't wait to try it!
