I don’t know if it’s because I now write a dedicated Friday Favorites post every week or what, but the days are flying by.  How is it already Friday?!

Now that I think about it, it’s probably because we are in the final countdown to baby.  That makes more sense, huh?

Speaking of final countdown, Vishnu and I are on a mission to use our time this weekend getting ready for Baby K.  We’re making a trip to Ikea (at 37.5 weeks pregnant…wish me luck!), we’re setting up the Pack n’ Play and Rock n’ Play, we’re installing the car seat, etc.

We’re also celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary (a week early) because Vishnu works next weekend and every other weekend in July.  Thank goodness my mama will be here next Saturday!  My sister also reminded me she has weekends off in July, so that will be nice and super helpful. Phew!

Anyways, let’s move on to this weeks Friday Favorites

I unexpectedly found baby shopping with Vishnu at BuyBuyBaby really fun!  What should’ve been a stressful trip ended up making us laugh. We couldn’t get over how companies market to and hone in on parents’ biggest fears.  It’s ridiculous! Also, strollers…SO EXPENSIVE!  And don’t get me started on baby clothes.  I’m sorry, but there’s no way I’m shilling out $25 for an outfit my baby will wear 2-3 times before outgrowing it.  Oy vey!

My heart was so happy when my mom sent me this picture last Sunday.  My parents, my grandparents, and Vishnu’s parents met up for a Father’s Day dinner at an Atlanta Indian restaurant.  So sweet!

Thea and I met up with two of our former coworkers at Pizzeria Via Stato for a birthday lunch, and the pizza I ordered was EVERYTHING.  The cracker thin crust was perfection.  As in I ate the whole thing!  #noregrets

My current after work routine is pretty amazing.  Me + the couch + Friends.  Every. Single. Day.

When I see elote on a menu, there’s a 99.9% chance I’ll be ordering it.  With that being said, how delicious and fresh does this recipe look?  Don’t have a spiralizer?  No worries…just use a potato peeler to create your zucchini ribbons!

For my readers with an interest in leadership articles/books, you will LOVE this site – Leadership Now.  I literally spent 45 minutes clicking, reading, and being inspired.

And to a few articles from the week

Love these heartwarming arranged marriage stories!

The topic of self-care is having it’s time in the limelight recently.  This article really hits home with 6 great tips.

Baby K isn’t going to be talking any time soon, but I definitely plan to keep these statements/phrases in the back of my mind.

Happy Friday!  Make it (and the weekend) a great one.
