Thoughts For Friday + The Pick: Week 44

Friday, November 6, 2015
Thank you all so very much for your sweet comments yesterday about my Thanksgiving décor! You all are too kind!

This week has been quick mostly, and I think because the countdown to baby girl is becoming shorter and shorter, time feels like it's fleeting. With about 7 +/- weeks left (I'll be 33 weeks tomorrow) there aren't many more weekends left where husband and I are just the two of us. I'm still in shock that we're in November, mind you the unseasonably warm temperatures this week have me all confused. Shouldn't I be decked out in a coat, mitten, and a toboggan? Mother Nature, please get it together and bring me some chilly temps...and maybe even some snow :) 

T H I N K I N G  > About Christmas shopping and finishing up the items we need for baby girl. We've got plans this weekend to make headway on the latter, and hopefully we'll be getting to the Christmas shopping shortly! 

P O N D E R I N G > Where in the world we are going to fit our Christmas tree this year. We've maxed out our space currently, and fitting a tree is going to be tricky. Not fitting a tree, however, is just not an option. So I'll figure something out!

N E E D I N G > To find a great base/top coat polish. I'm having trouble finding one that doesn't bubble or helps to keep my color polish from chipping. Taking any and all suggestions!

L I S T E N I N G > To my body very carefully as we near baby Hill's due date. My body is certainly prepping for birth, I'm sure of that, so I'm trying my best to tune into those changes to be aware of what is going on and what is coming my way.

D R E A M I N G > About baby girls' arrival...literally. And even wilder is that both husband and I dreamed about the exact same thing Wednesday night. Thursday morning we woke to share our dreams and were equally shocked that we had both dreamt about meeting our girl. She was cute in both of our dreams, so we're thinking she's going to be quite cute in reality too :) Needless to say, we're that much more excited to finally hold her and see her sweet face.

S W O O N I N G > Over the Starbucks red cups!! I just love the holiday season!

Have a lovely weekend, friends! May it be wonderful in all ways!

  1. Yay for 33 weeks!! Home stretch for sure! :)

  2. Your IG photos are starting to turn red and green. . . I love it!
    I use "Whim" top and base coats, and they really do make my nails last longer (though nothing seems to be a complete miracle product.)
    Have a great weekend!!

  3. Can't believe you're 33 weeks! I've found that if I don't use a base or top coat, my polish actually stays better. I think I've realized that the thicker the nail polish (all layers), the easier it chips. I always do 2 coats of polish. If I have a polish that needs a top coat because it's matte or something, I just use Sinful Colors clear coat.

  4. I adore that warm & cozy mug! So exciting that she'll be here so soon!!


Thanks for stopping by Hill Collection and leaving a few words! I love to hear from you!
