the Sowell life

the Sowell life's Friday five... 

1) {Nursery Preview} We are slowly but surely getting little AC's nursery ready for her arrival. Even though she won't be sleeping in there for a few months once we bring her home. I'm excited that her crib is ready to go, complete with her custom painting above it.

2) {A Little Baking} So, we ran out of Reese's Peanut Butter Hearts on Monday morning. Tragic, I know. The Mr was heading to the grocery store after work, but I started my chocolate and peanut butter craving before he got home. I just happened to have peanut butter cookie dough in the fridge and a package of Hershey Kisses in the pantry. Craving satisfied. BTW, these took 12 minutes total to make. 

3) {Snowy Delivery} The weather started getting rough Tuesday right before noon, and our postal service lady managed to make it to our door to deliver a package. It was something the Mr wanted for our little girl. You know, warm wipes!! 

4) {A Winter Wonderland} Once the snow started falling Tuesday morning, it pretty much didn't stop or let up until around 3:30 that afternoon. This was the first time I've seen our home covered in snow. I actually didn't walk out in it, but I did snap a picture of the backyard from the back door window, and had the Mr take our camera to the street to take a photo of the front of the house when he got home from work. 

5) {Bump Update} Sorry y'all... no picture for this week. Why? Because I haven't put any clothes besides my lounge pants and shirts that barely cover my belly anymore. Also, makeup and fixing my hair has been the last thing on my mind. So... I am sparing y'all the actual picture and just leaving you with that visual. However, I think we are getting out to go grocery shopping Saturday, so stay tuned to instagram and you might get a peek at the ever growing belly.

  1. Her nursery looks beautiful, and the painting is fantastic! I love custom little touches like that. And by the way, if ever you feel you have an overabundance of baked goods, package those bad boys up and send them my way! Happy Weekend! <3

  2. Love that painting and I'd sacrifice 12 minutes for those! They look delish!

  3. I love the way AC's room looks; she is going to love playing in there one day. I sure do hope we get a picture of her with your trip to the market tomorrow!

  4. The visual made me giggle! Maybe tomorrow...Your house looks gorgeous with all the snow! And I scoured my fridge looking for pb cookie luck, probably for the best! Loving little AC's nursery!! The colors are awesome! Can't wait to see more!!

  5. I want those chocolate PB cups now! And eeek, snow! So pretty but dangerous for those of us who don't know how to walk, drive, or live with it!

  6. YUM give me those delicious treats.

    AC's room looks great!

  7. The snow is pretty! I kind of doubted that I needed a wipe warmer, but I missed it when we would forget to refill it. It is so nice and Nicky appreciates it! :) The baby's room is looking so good. I can't believe she's almost here! And you're getting some really cute clothes for her. Have a good weekend!

  8. I love that nursery! Excellent job.
