five on friday

this is what I woke to this Friday morning. pallet on the floor next to my bed and two little babes in their Christmas jammies. 

all the encouragement and lifting of my spirits is SO appreciated.  I cried through reading all of your experience and mama drama and I am thankful for each and every one of you.  I saw this quote on the blanqigirls IG while browsing before bed last night.. and its PERFECT.
 the texts and calls and emails and comments.  seriously overwhelmed with support.
we’ve got a great community!
..and this little gem laded in my inbox last night as I was getting everyone in bed.  
if only Starbucks delivered Amazon Prime style.
my friends know what I need and when I need it the most.

two. speaking of my favorite drink!
I about lost my marbles when I pulled through the drive through at Starbucks and saw the picture of their Christmas drinks- chestnut praline latte is BACK!  ya’ll.. last year my Kroger Starbucks put the left over bottles of chestnut praline syrup on sale for like $4 bucks.  and I bought all that they had:) 
its so good. 
half-caf, non-fat, no whip- please!! 
the salted caramel mocha has been too sweet for my pregnancy tastebuds, so I had been getting picky with my order (1 pump mocha, 2 pumps toffee nut.. etc) and this is the perfect amount of sweet! 
three. baby boy things
I’ve spent the entire week thinking and planning for a baby boy.  I’m about to hit 21 weeks (on Sunday) and literally cannot get over HOW DARLING baby boy things are!! I plan to do nursery updates as they come along.. but, as of right now, the nursery is piled with clothing I need to box and ship from the incredible closet purge I did of the girls’ clothes over at my IG sale page(@shopmasseya) last weekend..oh and a giant gun safe that is as tall as I am.  BUT. we have a a few fun details we have picked up and BB has surprised me with so many fun things that are perfect for his nursery, too!  
I LOVE this bronze star mobile– none of my kiddos had mobiles in their room, so he will be the first! these pacifier clips.. and omg the personalization is so sweet! this tank romper, that I need to find the sweetest black cardigan for him to wear home from the hospital with his personalized beanie hat– all his sisters had these hats for the hospital (and after) and he has one, too!! the weather is so weird in March- its either 90 degrees or snowing.  so we will see:)  I also have a few of these newborn bodysuits to tote along in my hospital bag for the little guy.
four. christmas jammies! 
hands down my favorite place to buy pajamas, outside of hanna andersson is gap and old navy.  they are relatively cheap and go on sale about half the time.  HA are SUCH good quality, and the twins are actually able to wear their hanna christmas pajamas from last year and they still look brand new, but by the time I buy three pairs of pajamas its over $100! so I have to be picky about how I spend my monies there.  just for fun.. here are some of the holiday jams I stocked up on while they are on sale this week!!
!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s); = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

five. birthday planning fun!
I sent the twins’ party invites out this week!  I cant believe I’m about to have two FOUR year olds next month!  life is flying by!! I thought Baker’s strawberry party was my favorite, but I really think this paint party might be even more fun!  I got a giant box in the mail from sweet lulu this week and I about fell over dead with all the precious rainbow details.

    Love that quote! Hope things are easing up on you over there.

    So glad you're feeling a bit better! Also – you can't post a pic with those ADORABLE rain boots and not tell us where they're from.

  3. When I found out I was having a boy (all those years ago! he's four now lol), I was so sad because I thought shopping would be no fun. Boy was I wrong! And my husband would agree. I have way too much fun shopping for him now! Super excited to see his nursery!

    Oh and YES! Those rain boots. SO CUTE. Where are they from if you don't mind me asking?

  4. Your week sounds like it has been much better, and I'm so glad!! So excited to see updates for all the exciting things happening! 🙂

    Your posts are always so dangerous! I literally just stopped what I was doing and spent way too much money on paci clips! I was so tempted to shop from all the other shops you linked, too, but had to stop myself! I am not even pregnant yet! My hubby is going to kill me! Haha! I'm just going to blame you 🙂
