the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five... 

1) {Hello Winter Weather} The weather Monday and Tuesday was a little, um, cold. The Mr told me to stay indoors which was no problem because this pregnant girl doesn't have any clothes that are warm enough that fit. Of course on Tuesday, the power went out not once, not twice, but three times. Thankfully it was fully restored before dark. I never stepped foot out of the house, but the Mr told me it was COLD. It didn't last long though, we are back in the upper 50s again.

2) {New Jewels} While we were gone for the holidays, we had our mail held. And when we got back I had a sweet package in the mail from Jessica. It's a necklace she had made for both our angel baby and little AC. 

3) {Baby Bump Update} Little AC has been having the hiccups about twice a day here lately, and she's getting bigger which means momma is getting bigger, too. 

4) {Tum Ta Ta Ta TUMS} These things have become a huge part of my life over the past week. I've needed them a lot during the pregnancy, but last week I kinda had a small break from them. I might have only had 5 all week. Well, this week it came back FULL FORCE. It's a good thing the Dr said they are okay for you, and eat as many as you need.

5) {Cute Accessories} I've become a huge fan of And I found these sweet headbands for AC on there. They arrived on Wednesday and we can't wait to see them on our little girl in March. 

Now, who's ready to link up for the first Friday Five of 2014?!! I appreciate y'all spreading the word more than you'll ever know!! Please stop by and visit with the other bloggers who link up. It's a great way to find new bloggers to follow! And who doesn't love comments, right? =) Enjoy your weekend, y'all! 


  1. Even up here in Philadelphia/NJ, 9 degrees is flipping cold! I can't imagine you guys down south really get temps like that very often! Mr is right, it was FREEZING! I'm glad he told you to stay indoors (hoooray for not having clothes that fit!) and glad your lack of power was resolved fairly quickly!
    I think I saw you post that necklace on Instagram, it's so pretty. Very dainty and delicate.
    Amazon changed my life over the holidays. I'm trying to stay far away from it due to my spending freeze, but otherwise, LOVE IT!
    You look so beautiful!! Happy HAPPY Friday to you and your sweets!

  2. i had heartburn something awful during my pregnancy as well. TUMS were God sent. It always seems like heartburn would hit right when I wanted to lay down and sleep. Hope you are feeling good!

  3. Those headbands are ADORABLE! I love the necklace too. How thoughtful.

    Happy Friday to you guys!

  4. That necklace is so cute! What a sweet gesture. Have a great weekend!

  5. What a sweet sweet necklace! I am loving those adorable headbands too!

    It is supposed to warm up to the 60's this weekend. Time to put the AC back on probably! I hope you guys have a great weekend!

  6. Amazon is amazing. Amazon Prime makes it more amazing! I hope you've signed up for it. I'm hooked! Have a great weekend!

  7. I love Amazon and love being an Amazon Prime Member. The baby bump is so cute, Joy! I am glad the cold weather has left Austin, its crazy how cold it got. Have a wonderful weekend. Kelly

  8. You got a lot of super cute things in the mail, and of course I love to see you and AC grow; It makes me smile :-) I hear the old wives tale that heartburn means more hair. I don't know how true that is, but she may just arrive ready for all those cute bows you just got :-)

  9. Love to see that growing bump! Heartburn sucks. And like others have said - I was told it was a sign of hair. I barely had any with the Bird and she was bald until 2 years old, so I kinda believe it! :) LOVE LOVE LOVE the headbands. Super cute! Have a wonderful relaxing weekend. Now that the temps are back to normal!!
