Ten on Tuesday [No.42]

Hey y'all!
I'm so glad to be back in my blogging routine (we'll see if I can keep it up, or not) and glad to be bringing y'all a Ten on Tuesday so I can recap all the stuff that's been going on in our lives lately.

ONE
Let's start off with some big news first...In last Saturday's post I shared the results of our gender reveal. . .
We're going to add a little boy to our family in September!
I guess that really means I will be outnumbered with Chris, Forrest, and our little man 😊
TWO
On a totally different note...now that I'm finally getting my appetite back, I'm ready to start testing out some new restaurants!
This list of 21 New Birmingham Restaurants to check out this Spring should be a good place to start (if you're in Alabama, I highly recommend!)
I know Hero Doughnuts & Mason Dixon Bakery and Bistro are on my to-do list...thankfully my doctor is in Birmingham, so I have a good reason to go every month 😉
THREE
Okay, I'm going to talk about shopping here for a second; have y'all see the Opalhouse collection that Target just launched?
Although our house isn't really boho-styled, I do love the look and think that a lot of the items would work within our rustic/farmhouse type style.
I'm thinking this pouf would work well in the nursery for a foot rest/extra seating/etc. since it's soft and not too feminine looking.
We're re-doing our downstairs in our home including a bathroom and I think these would be the most perfect neutral guest towels, maybe with this shower curtain?
And just because I love candles & decor-these chunky candle holders (in both colors!) would be beautiful for the Spring, Summer, or Fall-time.
FOUR
So my Dad & husband recently bought a new piece of equipment (aka, big boy toys) and so last Sunday afternoon Chris spent time playing with it, cleaning up a fence line in our pasture.
Want to know what I did while he was enjoying his Easter Sunday afternoon?
I was so tired, I laid in the backseat of the truck and fell asleep.
Y'all-I need my energy to come back! (It was a good nap though-haha!)
FIVE
Is anyone else as excited as I am about the Royal-Baby?!
He or she could be born any day now!
SIX
This past Sunday afternoon was a little more exciting (for me) than Easter Sunday, because I didn't have to take a nap during the middle of it 😂
We ended up taking Forrest to the pond so he could swim & play a little fetch...which he did, but it was interrupted. . .
 By these two visitors!
When we pulled up and threw out his duck decoy, a giant goose flew out at him from the little island in the pond (you can see the bridge leading out to it).
 They had a pretty good reason for not wanting us there, though...
They have a nest with six little goose-eggs in it!
So Forrest won't be making any more trips to the pond for just a little while, but I definitely want to come and watch from a distance to see when the little babies hatch.
SEVEN
I know I've already mentioned Target once already-but they are killing it this Spring.
Have y'all seen the new goodies for Spring from Hearth & Hand yet?!
I have yet to pull the trigger on anything from Joanna Gaines' Target line yet...but this just might be the time that I do.
My recommendations:
EIGHT
This list of Southern Living's classic casserole-dish recipes should help me out whenever I need something comforting and easy.
NINE
How many of these picturesque, small southern towns are on your travel bucket list?
I definitely want to make it to Williamsburg one day.
TEN
Etiquette question; although I'm obviously past the time to register for anything wedding related-I've noticed the trend of "Honeymoon Registries".
What do y'all think?
I read this article and am still not sure of my opinion on it...I do love the personal aspect of picking out a physical gift from someone.
Let me know your thoughts below!

Until next time. . .
xoxo,
