The weekend is here, and I am finally posting my Friday Favorites again! We are leaving for Savannah later today for a family wedding. It will be a quick trip, but if anyone has any recommendations for food or places to see (with a little one), please send them my way!
ONE: Something that I have been stuck on for our nursery is finding a mobile for over the crib. We had a sports themed one for Davis’ room, but I wanted something a little more artistic and modern this time. I found one on Pinterest that I loved, but it was homemade, and I’m trying to stay away from too many DIY projects at the moment. Also, I would not trust myself to make something that would be hanging over my baby all night! I like all of the ones below, and they are mostly from etsy, and generally all very affordable!

This has nothing to do with a crib mobile, but, I came across this adorable custom wooden name sign while perusing Etsy. Placing this on a bookshelf in a nursery or kids’ room would add such a sweet, personal touch. Such a great gift idea, too!
TWO: Speaking of nurseries, I posted this collage with all of the details of the room in this post recently. If you all have thoughts on the best mobile to go with this look, I would love your opinions! This room is slowly coming together, but we’ve got a few projects left to complete. I’m positive that the boys’ rooms will easily be my favorites in the house. Once they are complete I will definitely show photos!
The sign is my favorite part.
THREE: Wednesday was Todd’s birthday, and he and I were able to go on a date! We ate dinner at Bakersfield on East Blvd, then I took him to Sycamore Brewing for a quick beer flight. Both places were new to us, and we enjoyed them! I have been craving the tacos ever since. We will certainly go back there soon – and then we’ll go again when I can enjoy a margarita. 🙂
FOUR: If you’re in Charlotte, I recommend visiting the Charlotte Regional Farmer’s Market tomorrow! This picture shows some of the flowers I saw there last week. There are a few flower vendors with the most gorgeous florals. They will put together a custom bouquet for you, that start at $10. And they are serious eye candy.
FIVE: My blogging friend, Megan Flynn Peterson of The Freckled Italian, is releasing her first cookbook! I received an advance copy, and I can tell you that this book is one you’ll want to have in your kitchen. The recipes are paleo, but not intimidating or complicated. The ingredients and instructions are straightforward, but healthy – AND delicious. I made a couple of her recipes, pictured below, and I will have those posted later this weekend. Right now The Big 15 Paleo Cookbook is available for pre-order and it is discounted!
She included a paleo BBQ sauce in her book, which I used to barbecue chicken. I added some grilled pineapple for sweetness. The Kale Salad with Bacon, Apples, and Pecans was amazing!
In case you missed it… even though I’ve been missing the Friday link-ups, I have posted some recipes recently:
Have a fabulous weekend!
