Hey there, Friday. I must have been really excited for Friday because I woke up at 3am this morning. Neat. Maybe it’s the gigantic baby growing in my belly or the sore arm from my whooping-cough vaccine yesterday that did it. However, I am happy that after work tomorrow night I’ll have over 24 hours of doing whatever I want. That will most definitely include a nap. And crafts, don’t forget crafts. Whatever your plans may be for this weekend, I hope you have fun! Now, let’s look at some of my favorite things from around the web in this week’s Friday Favorites.***click on the red text to be led to the sources of my favorites

Somehow, we’re only 46 days away from my due date (and the end of tax season). Where has the time gone? It probably ran off with my energy. Luckily, the excitement of knowing our little girl will be here soon is helping me muster up moments of productivity. Not enough to make me want to hunt down a Durian Fruit this week though…that stinky fruit is not worth the energy.
