#nelsendays2014 Week 27 + a GIVEAWAY!!!

Here's a look at what we've been up to this week.

You can keep up with us everyday on Instagram @hmnelsen or find us here:


Day 183: Matt and I toured the hospital where we will deliver and got so excited imagining the day that we'll get to meet our little guy! Matt met me from work and showed up 45 minutes early, and I choked up several times listening to the tour guide talk about each stage of the day. Hahah- we're quite a pair.

Day 184: I got to have a date night in with this sweet love while her mom and dad went on a date. We made pasta (of course) and dressed up like chefs to feel more official. ;)

Day 185: Cheering on the runners at the 4th of July Peachtree Road Race!

Day 186: While Matt played golf, Tally and I relaxed at a Starbucks- me with a book and him with a bone. These days will look a little different in the very near future!

Day 187: Experiencing the Suntrust seats at the Braves game thanks to a sweet surprise from super thoughtful friends! You can read more about the day here.

Day 188: Girls' night at No. 246- so fun and SO delicious!

Day 189: Blueberry picking at Matt's grandparents' farm! They're out in Social Circle, GA so if you're at all close by, it is definitely worth the drive! They are the sweetest people and have TONS of blueberries for picking! You can check them out here and here.

This was after I returned from blueberry picking. I laid on the couch and propped up my feet to try to de-swell my feet and ankles, and seconds later Tally plopped himself down on my belly to snuggle. He has no idea he's a big dog- such a snuggler. ;)

Today I am exciting to participate in a great giveaway with a super sweet friend and blogging buddy- Megan from M for Love. Megan came across Si & Ez Threads on Instagram.  

The cute vintage tee company was started by a mom and dad who love dressing their boys, Silas and Ezra in clothes that speak strong messages over them. Not only are the designs adorable, but  Si & Ez Threads gives back 10% of all they make to the community, so it's a product to feel good about purchasing.  

I love a product with purpose, and if you do too, you will love today's giveaway!

To enter, check out these participating blogs and then enter the rafflecopter below!

The contest will run for one week with a winner announced next Tuesday. Good luck!

Si & Ez is also offering 15% off all their products through the end of July with the checkout code SIEZ15. The company works on pre-orders, so don't miss your chance to order with the discount!



  1. I love picking blueberries! Love that y'all got to do that as a family. The pic of a Tally snuggling up with you cracks me up! He reminds me so much of Cubby since neither of them realize they are no longer lap dogs haha! He and baby are going to be best buds. I can feel it :) thanks for sharing !

  2. Blueberry picking sounds excellent, although exhausing when very pregnant I bet! I went strawberry picking 3 weeks before little e was born and I too had to take to the couch to get my ankles back!!

  3. Your little chef is adorable!!!
    I love berry picking. I just told the Hubby today that I'd love to get out and pick some this year.

  4. Hi Heather!
