Happy Friday friends!! I'm so excited to share some big news with you today! Jon and I are expecting our first baby this January!! We are over the moon excited! It has definitely been a hard secret to keep but I've been waiting for a good time to share with you! I'm sure you're wondering how this is going to affect The Bargain Belle blog? I am still planning on keeping things pretty much the same with keeping the focus on bargains and fashion but will probably sprinkle in some baby stuff here and there if that interests y'all! We are so grateful to God for this huge blessing and can't wait for our best adventure yet! 

Ok, now on to Friday 5 ;)! 

1. The dress I am wearing above is one of my favorite summer purchases! It ties in the back with cute tassels on the ties. The baby balloons are so fun and reusable and this store offers a ton of other balloons too (birthdays, weddings, engagements, etc).  

2.  The 10 Most Addicting Books According To The Internet.
