I’m hosting another Pin It Party! This one will be on Thursday, May 22nd! In case you missed the last one, here are the details:
All bloggers are welcome to participate! Here’s what you do:
- Round up 5 blog posts you’ve written that you would like to see on Pinterest.
- Make sure there is a nice, pinable image or photo included in each post.
- Write a short post featuring the posts you chose- ie, put 5 nice images & links to the posts all in one place, along with a short description of each post.
- On Thursday, publish your post, then visit The Bean and add your post to the linkup! (If you’re just reading this today and still want to participate, just publish in the next few days…I’ll leave the linkup open for about a week!)
The only rule is this:
If you add your post to the linkup, please take a few minutes to visit at least three other posts and pin some of their images!
Check out my last Pin It Party Post if you want an example!

Goodies from my friends at Cabot. How awesome is that tote bag.
Bump update: 13 weeks vs 18 weeks.
Last week was much better than the week before. I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m not nauseous all day every day. Thank goodness! I’m still getting nauseous, but there are at least spans of time throughout the day where I feel good. This led to a few great days early in the week, a few so-so days mid week and a pretty good weekend. I spent a lot of the weekend laying around watching the live stream of the Crossfit Regionals competition. Loved it. Hubby and I also ran a lot of errands and made some productive purchases including a new TV and lamp for our bedroom and some curtains for the nursery! Here’s to another good week hopefully!
