Happy holidays!

Happy holidays! They're creepin' just around the corner. And so is our little one's birthday. Yesterday, (my due date), came and went without little Archie's arrival, so now we're officially in "impatient" mode over here. I actually feel ok for being 9 months pregnant at the moment, and I want to give him a chance to come into the world on his own without any medical intervention until it's completely necessary. However, as of Monday he still hasn't dropped, and I was still dilated at 1 cm. I've been there for a couple of weeks now. If Archie hasn't arrived by Thursday evening and I haven't dilated any further, I go to the hospital to get some help from the drug Cervidil. Hopefully that will do its magic and get things moving. If a day goes by and my body still isn't cooperating, I'll be induced as a last resort. In any event, I can't believe that this time next week we'll have our long-awaited bundle of joy. Merry Christmas to us!

But before I go have this baby, I have some mid-week odds and ends to share...

The best books of 2014, according to Goodreads users.

Throwing back to last Christmas: DIY vintage globe ornaments + homemade marshmallows!

My 2014 gift guide, in case you missed it. 

Love, love, love these little deer ornaments via The Hunted Interior. Sadly, my Target was sold out.

Can I listen to this song on repeat while I'm in labor?! 

New fave blogger: Kristin of Ella Claire. Her Christmas posts and decor are absolutely stunning.

Small biz ladies: love this tutorial about how to insert social media icons into your email signature.

Mid-century Putz houses -- a fun DIY!

This hat would be the talk of the holiday party. DIY, anyone?

I hope you all have a great rest of the week! Cross your fingers that this baby starts moving towards the light! xo -- Natty
