Weekend Links

Happy weekend! Today Charlie is officially 3 weeks old. Time is flying! I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend.

Link time! First up, be sure to head over to my pal Allison's blog to check out an amazing giveaway from the fabulous shop Block & Battaglia. Seriously, go look at her Etsy shop- SO GOOD. I'm dying over all of the items. All you have to do is follow @allisonpants and @chrissybchrissy on Instagram, then repost the photo from their feed (see below and get it on either of their IGs) on your own page with the hashtag #BBGiveMeMexico. And if you don't win this particular bag, be sure to still pop over and see all of the other bags she makes- there are a ton of really cute options.

So my friend Jenny does hair tutorials on her YouTube page and I am DYING over this one she did with her daughter Magnolia. I love Jenny's videos, and this one is particularly adorable. A must-watch.

Etsy love: this bracelet, this shop, and this pillow too! And I can't forget the best caramels in the world. THE BEST.

Psst, don't forget to check out this post to see if you won the Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag giveaway.

  8. Do you have a list of links to your favorite mommy blogs anywhere? I'm due any day now and looking for new blogs to read while on maternity leave, but struggling to find some good ones that update regularly, besides yours that is. :-) (Thanks for updating so much!) But if you had some favorites to suggest, that would be awesome!
