Work It Wednesday {#15}

Welcome back to Work It Wednesday folks! I'm so excited to share with you my favorite posts from last week and to see what you've been up to as of late! But first...I have a confession. I haven't been completely honest with you in these last few months. Do you remember the days when I was so on top of things and would literally post something EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. and not bat an eye about it? And how Work It Wednesday would go up at the right time every week - Tuesday night between 6:30 and 8:30, instead of Wednesday night? {Oops.} Those were the days, weren't they? I feel like both Zachary and I have been making a lot of excuses about slacking on our posting schedule these last couple months {although I promise you, our computer really did die!} and I think it's time we came clean. We've had a few things on our mind lately. Actually just one thing. One giant, enormous, huge thing and yet it currently only weighs about 5 ounces. If you haven't guessed it by now, maybe this will help ya out....


That's right, "Zachary and I" just became Zachary, me, and BABY!!! I'm so stinking excited and keep finding myself stopping to try and take it all in. It feels so surreal! We've been busy trying to get everything squared away between work and the nursery and all that good stuff. Not to mention, we're going on a cruise in two weeks, so we've been working on sorting that out too.

We wanted to announce this to you all in a much, much different way, but like I've said...we're slackers. Don't judge. Remember the Blueberry Overnight French Toast and the 5 Ingredient Raspberry Cobbler we made? Well, the blueberries and raspberries in those recipes actually held the secret to our baby's size at the time! We were super gung ho about doing a size picture every week and then Christmas happened and the computer died and we just failed. Miserably. But, now that you know the meaning behind it all, we're going to keep up on it every week until this little sweet pea is born!! {This week it's a turnip...anybody got any good turnip recipes??...} Anyway, we can't freaking wait for all of this and we're excited to share all of our adventures with you!

So, friends, there you have it. The truth about us. The reason we've seemed so preoccupied in the last little while. I hope that rather than judge us for seemingly abandoning things around these parts, you'll realize that we're human just like the rest of ya and are doing our best.

Now let's see some features, shall we?? First off, is the most popular link of the week:


If you haven't already looked through all of her cute ideas, go do it now! I know the Superbowl is over, but there are still some awesome appetizer ideas on there!

And now, here are my favorites from the week:







Aren't they all so fun and festive? I adore them all. If you were featured, be sure to grab yourself a featured button here! Now...let's get down to the nitty gritty. All I ask is that you remember 3 simple rules:

#1 - Link up anything and everything {recipes, crafts, projects, tutorials, etc.} that has been made by you. I don't care what it is as long as it isn't a shop, giveaway, advertisement, link party or something of the like.
#2 - Please link back to us in some way, shape, or form. I understand how annoying this can be sometimes, so I've made a lovely super ugly button {I know, I'm working on it. Give me some time.} for you to put on your blog. You can also put a text link at the end of your post or even put our link in your party page. Just please give credit where credit is deserved!

High Heels and Grills


#3. Please please PLEASE don't link and run. The whole point of a link party is to make connections and friends with people. Put a stop to selfish blogging right now and make someone's day by commenting on at least two blogs! 
If after doing these 3 things, you decide you want to subscribe to us via E-mail,  follow us on Pinterest, like us on Facebook, or follow us onTwitter, I definitely would not object! Thank you all. With that being said, work it friends and show me what you've got!!
