Five on Friday!

Image result for five on friday

1. I've checked one thing off of our mile long to-do before baby list and purchased our nursery furniture about two weeks ago. It will be delivered next Friday, which is exciting yet scary because there is so much furniture in the guest room that needs to be moved before then. We went with the Gemma Campaign dresser and crib from Pottery Barn Kids. Scored them on sale, too! Now just keep your fingers crossed that a tennis ball cannot fit underneath either of these pieces. We have a dog whose absolute favorite activity is knocking the tennis ball underneath of furniture and then barking until we get it out and throw it to her. 

2. I swore I would no longer buy Ikea furniture but we are need of a new bed frame and given the dog's favorite activity, I'd really like one that goes all the way to the floor. Julia of Lemon Stripes  recently featured her master bedroom and she has the Ikea Brimnes bed frame and I think it looks pretty fab. Since this isn't really a need situation but rather one I'd like to tackle pre-baby, the price is a pretty big factor as well. Does anyone have any experience with Ikea bed frames? What is the deal with the slatted bed base? Is that a necessary purchase? We have a really nice mattress that currently sits on top of a box spring so not sure if this is something we would need to buy as well.

3. In less than a month we are headed down to Puerto Rico! We had initially planned to head out to the Pacific Northwest for our vacation this summer but with a baby on the way, we decided a beach destination was a better fit for us. Further, with airline miles and hotel points, we were able to score our flights and hotel stay for free! Can't beat that :)  Anyone been to San Juan and have recommendations for us? We are definitely going into town and to the rainforest at some point but any other recs are welcomed and appreciated! 

I hope you all have a lovely Friday! I'm off to the pool with my mother-in-law and niece and nephew and then headed to pre-natal yoga- should be a good day! 


  1. OBSESSED with that dresser! I was oooooing over it in the magazine this week! xx

  2. I sort of want to order that dresser for myself ;)
