Link Up Friday

I'm joining two link ups today and I'm going to see how it goes.  Thankfully they play by the same rules so it should go smoothly.  Here are my five for the week:

1. Maternity Clothes.

Not sure if this is a yay or a nay.  New clothes usually equals fun but maternity clothes are not cute and not very exciting to shop for honestly.  I'm trying to have an open mind and I realize that this is going to happen but I want to be adorable like the above photos in my inspiration board...where are these clothes?  My mother in law sent me a gift in the mail to help me start off my maternity shopping frenzy...let the madness begin.

Oh it's my favorite season and I have so many activities to cram in the upcoming few weeks.  Like the corn maze - we must complete the corn maze!  Ken's always has a fun design and it changes every year.  It can take a while to finish but that's what makes it a challenge.  We haven't been to the pumpkin patch activity I hope we can get in this week.  A corn maze followed by pumpkin picking with a late night showing of Gone Girl is pretty much my dream weekend.

3.Lays Lattice Cut Aged Cheddar Chips
I chose a small bag of these chips last weekend when we had an early dinner at Firehouse Subs.  I will not be buying them for the house though.  NO WAY are these chips coming into our house!  They are so yummy that we would eat the whole bag in one sitting.  I don't usually like chips and I generally don't care for salty snacks but these were a delicious treat.

4. Fancy Pants Dog Bed
Look at fancy showing off her new bed!  R decided to turn an old pallet that we had downstairs into a bed for our hound.  He completed it with some banister decorations from Home Depot turned upside down to make legs.  It was a quick afternoon project and Lady seems to appreciate that she no longer has to sleep on the floor.

5. Creamy Chicken Taquitos

I like Mexican food.  I've always liked it, it may not be my favorite and it may not be the type of food that I routinely ask for but I definitely like it.  The pregnant me LOVES Mexican food and eats it multiple times per week.  I pinned this recipe over the weekend and R made it last was delicious, a winner, and will become part of our regular rotation.  We didn't make it in the crockpot as suggested, he actually baked the chicken and made the filling in a pot on the stovetop.  Next time we will have better prep and use our slow cooker.


  1. I love that cute sweater! I had just found out I was pregnant in the Fall, so I never really got to wear Fall inspired Maternity clothes...enjoy!

    1. Everyone tells me that I "picked" a good time to be pregnant. Truthfully I'm happy I don't have to deal with searing hot weather but I'm struggling with the selection. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. The dog bed is great! I think we have one laying around, I may (I mean, have Sean) make one for Angel! Maternity clothes are hard, but you're definitely in the best time of the year! I enjoyed being pregnant much more in the fall/spring than I did spring/summer.

    1. The dog bed is an easy afternoon project! Seasonally I'm thrilled that I don't have to deal with summer but I've struggled to find maternity clothes that I like so far. Thankfully I'm not alone, other bloggers have said the exact same thing. I may be living in long sleeve shirts, cardigans and leggings for the next 5 months. Thanks for stopping by!
