the weekend.

We enjoyed a pretty laid back weekend,
and it was very much needed!

Saturday morning we headed to the Providence Farmer's Market.
You know, so I could get my pickles.
I made sure to get two containers this time.
One of them is already gone.
They were just as good as I remembered.
I also picked up some pretty zinnias.
There's not much better than fresh flowers to brighten up the house.



The hubs and I enjoyed some baked goods and walked along the east side of Providence 
to one of my favorite shops, Frog & Toad. 
It's filled with all sorts of eclectic goodies
and is the perfect place to find a one of a kind gift.
We were just browsing, but I came across these cute vintage puppy bookends
and couldn't resist them for the babe's room :)

The rest of the weekend was spent planning for a little gender reveal party
coming up in a week and a half!
My mom, sisters and brother are going to be here for it, along with the hubs' family.
I can't wait!

I also spent an embarrassing amount of time on pinterest and the interwebs
gathering some nursery inspiration.
More to come on that, later this week!
Hope this first day of August is treating you well!
