Weekend Reading: October 19, 2013

38 Weeks Pregnant

After several days of fairly intense — but intermittent — contractions, my mom flew up from Florida a little earlier than we’d originally planned this week so that she can be here when Jackson arrives. I’m writing this post on Thursday night, and as of now I’m still pregnant, but who knows what the next couple of days will bring, so be sure to check on Instagram for updates!

We’re all very anxious for Jackson’s arrival at this point — looking forward to meeting him and having a baby in the house once again — and it’s definitely an exciting time for our family!

Here are some of my favorite posts from this week. As always, check out what I’m reading and what I’m pinning to see the other posts that make me stop and think (or, you know, drool…). You’ll find new posts all week long!
