We are doing our maternity photos next week and I seriously cannot contain my excitement.
I’m so excited to see how they’re going to turn out,
fingers crossed that Kyle has a good attitude…he is NOT a fan of photoshoots.
So y’all say a little prayer or something for us haha
Happy Friday Eve!!!


How far along: 28 weeks + 3 days

Due date: March 4th! I’m pretty confident little dude will be fashionably late though.

Gender: Boyyyyyy – Hayes Wyatt / Hawk / Bubs / I’m sure this list of names will grow tremendously

How big is baby? This week, Hayes is the size of an eggplant and is about 2/2.5 lbs!

This week, baby: Has eyelashes, eyebrows and most likely hair on his head! He’s also starting to open his eyes!

Exercise: Not even going to lie, exercise is a thing of the past…However I did get my ass off the couch and do 15 squats yesterday, the amount of huffing and puffing going on after those squats was extremely embarrassing…Lord help this out of shape mama.

What I’m googling: HA! Y’all are gonna die at this one….Kyle and I totally googled “breastfeeding nipples” the other night!? Justtttttt trying to get myself prepared after hearing 5 million breastfeeding horror stories! Also googling “What to pack in your hospital bag”!

Purchases I’ve made/nesting update: We finally have the majority of our nursery items…however, baby won’t even be sleeping in there at first andddddd we don’t have a bassinet yet, which is what he’ll be sleeping in next to our bed. SO I feel prepared since the nursery is coming together, but in reality i’m totally not at all. The nesting hasn’t fully hit me yet, our house is currently a disaster…really hoping I get that nesting/cleaning machine “symptom” soon that everyone talks about.

How are you feeling?
Physically:
I feel great the majority of the time! I’m not sleeping through the night so I’m a lot more tired during the day, if I’m forced to be out or stay up past 9 I tend to get REAL cranky.
Emotionally: So happy and excited and thankful. Sometimes I’ll just stare at my belly and start crying because of how happy and in disbelief I am that this is my life right now. Of course I still get scared/paranoid if baby isn’t moving as much and I’m always afraid of something being wrong and me not recognizing it. Every now and then i’ll worry about Kyle and I and how transitioning into parenthood will affect our relationship. But overall I am just over the moon excited to meet our little guy. Oh ya, and I am moody as all hell, and needy and I think I ask Kyle at least once a week if he still loves me…bless him for dealing with my craziness.

Maternity clothes: Yes, never want to wear regular pants ever again.

Sleep: Sleep is getting harder and harder, it’s not even that I’m uncomfortable, it’s mainly that my mind just races, or when I get up to pee I can’t seem to fall back asleep. Guess my body is just preparing me for when baby gets here!

Best moment this week: I think anytime he’s super active is the best thing ever, I love staring at my belly and watching him move around. It’s even better when Kyle’s home and gets to watch/feel it as well! As far as the BEST moment?! Last night I totally asked Charley (our pup) “Where’s brother??” and she came up and licked my belly. I definitely have been trying to train her to do that and I am 100% aware that it was pure luck/accident but it totally made my entire week.

Worst moment this week: Honestly, I’ve kind of been freaking out this morning. Hayes is usually SUPER active at night/ all throughout the middle of the night, and first thing in the mornings…he’s been pretty quiet and it’s stressing this paranoid mama out! So if you can, say a little prayer for me this morning, that he’ll start movin’ & groovin’ so I can relax and stop worrying! This is super unlike him.

Miss anything? Sleeping on my tummy (just sleeping in general lol), lunch meat, beer/champagne!

Movement: He is a wild one! Loves balling up on one side of my tummy and changing positions often. Has been kicking me in the ribs lately.

Cravings/Eating: Blue Bells milk chocolate ice cream! Have been eating it every single night.

Symptoms: I’m starting to get hot flashes more regularly (they freaking SUCK). Achy back if I sit or stand for too long.

How’s Daddy doing? He’s doing great! So much more relaxed than I am which is GOOD haha

Looking forward to: Our next ultrasound appointment and of course seeing his face and meeting him for the first time. 🙂

To-dos this week: Find a pediatrician//Find class to take (suggestions please!)//Write birth plan

Hope y’all enjoyed this weeks bump date!
Come back tomorrow because I’ll be sharing some gorgeous Holiday dresses,
and also hosting a giveaway!!!

Y’all!!!! I am SO excited about today’s post!!
I have teamed up with Totesavvy to share one of their incredible products with you.



As all of you know, I’m a fashion lover, and my favorite thing in the entire world
is putting different looks together.
Since becoming pregnant I have been on the hunt for “the perfect” diaper bag.
I’ve actually found a ton that I love, but none of them are cheap…and none of them can really go with every outfit. Now if you’re a fashion lover like me, you know that you can’t wear the same bag with every single outfit, it just doesn’t work like that!
Whether you’re a soon to be mama or already have your baby in your arms,
Totesavvy is about to change your life!!
You no longer need to purchase multiple expensive diaper bags,
or feel frustrated carrying the same diaper bag every day that doesn’t match your outfit.

Totesavy is an organizational insert that turns ANY handbag into a fully functional diaper bag!!
I’ll be sharing the “tote version” but they also have a mini version for smaller bags!!
The ToteSavvy original insert fits perfectly into my new favorite bag from Target!


The ToteSavvy Original insert has 11 multi-size pockets, an insulated pocket, a compact changing mat, key clasp, and a flat pocket!! I mean, every mamas dream right?!


If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect Christmas gift for a soon to be mama,
or if you know a mama in need of this diaper bag insert in her life, I’ve got GREAT news!!
Totesavvy is currently having a Holiday S A L E and you can take 25% off your order with code “SPARKLE”.
I will be using this baby religiously once Hayes gets here.
Now hurry and go grab one for yourself, a friend, or a family member while they’re on sale!!!

Happy Tuesday!

This weekend was a busy one, and this week is going to be just as busy!!
So someone pass me some coffee PUHLEASE.
Side note: My favorite maternity shop is having 30% off site wide today!
Just use code “WINTER30” at checkout! Both my top and jeans are from there.

We had a birthday party to attend across town on Saturday,
the party was from 11-2 but we ended up staying until about 7:30!
Our sweet friends little boy was celebrating his 3rd birthday and he ended up choosing
a “bacon themed party” which was actually so stinkin’ cute!!
We ended up staying late and talking to our friends about parenthood,
goodness our lives are about to change tremendously, for the better of course!!
We didn’t end up getting home until close to 9pm which is pretty much my bed time.
This third trimester came in HOT and I’m already feeling heavy and exhausted and having a hard
time sleeping through the night…BUT I know all of these little aches and pains will be SO DANG worth it once our little guy is here, can’t believe we’re only 12 weeks away from meeting him!!

Anyways, I’ve got some fun blog posts to share with y’all this week!!
So make sure you come back and say hi!
Happy Monday Y’all.

There’s some exciting things happening and I’m SO excited to tell y’all about them!!
First off, I wanted to share this off the shoulder fringe sweater from ShopPinkBlush..
because it’s basically the cutest thing I’ve put on this pregnant belly of mine!
If you know me, you know I’m in love with ANYTHING off the shoulder,
the fringe detailing on this sweater just makes it THAT much more of a necessity.
It’s the perfect sweater to wear all Fall & Winter, I’m thinking about pairing it with some fun
Holiday earrings on Christmas Eve!
If you’re not already, make sure you follow ShopPinkBlush on Instagram,
they’re doing awesome giveaways next week and I’m taking over their instagram stories on Tuesday for their 12 days of pink blush!





// Sweater // Leggings // Booties //
(these are hands down the BEST maternity leggings, wear them multiple times a week)
(I’ve also worn these booties religiously the last two years, 100% recommend them)
Make sure you head to the ShopPinkBlush site to see all of the other cute sweaters they have in stock!!

It’s officially Friday Eve, which means the weekend is ALMOST here!!
It’s been super rainy and cold in Houston,
if we could just get the rain to leave and the cold to stay I’d be SO happy!
Well, I’m off to finally do the load of laundry that I’ve already had to re-wash 3 times…
Happy Thursday!
