This weekend could NOT have been any more perfect!
I had my baby shower this Saturday and I was so happy with how it turned out.
So grateful for everyone who came and for those who sent love from out of town.
We are SO blessed.

After sharing this photo on Instagram I received an overwhelming amount of comments and DM’s about this dress and I’m SO sad that it’s completely sold out. It was only $18 and seriously THE best maternity purchase I’ve made. I’m linking some similar styles for y’all below — and PRAYING this this specific dress comes back in stock soon!
(I linked tons of options so make sure you scroll through to see them all)



Prepare yourselves for a ridiculous amount of photos all in the same location haha!















Hayes is one lucky boy to be loved by SO many!!

Happy Wednesday!
So, I really want to make sure I share ALL of the cute maternity brands with y’all while I still can.
It’s a little ridiculous how many people have negative views on maternity wear and try to avoid buying it,
but I’m tellin’ ya…THOSE PEOPLE ARE WRONG.
It is 100% possible to be pregnant and wear trendy clothing that’s also super comfy for your bump.

I mean, I feel like I’ve made that pretty clear in the last 8 months or so. Right??

Today I want to share Kimi and Kai Maternity with y’all and ALSO give you a chance to win ANY item of your choice from their website!!
We’ve teamed up so I can share some of their amazing pieces and also do a giveaway.

I’m going to be sharing my top 3 favorite looks from their website here on the blog today.
If you want a chance to win something off their site make sure you head to my Instagram {HERE} and follow the rules to enter the giveaway!

Happy Wednesday friends and don’t forget to enter in the giveaway!!!

I have FINALLY ordered a baby book for Hayes, and I’m a little mad at myself for waiting so long to do it!
Especially because I got it customized and now it won’t arrive for like 2-3 weeks…
andddddd he could totally be here by then BUT I’m just not going to think about that.

I’ve been on the search for one for the longest time but just haven’t found anything that felt right.
So what did I do?! I asked all of you for suggestions of course!!

I received tons of great suggestions from y’all but the one that REALLY stuck out to me was from PolkaDotPrintShop. I completely fell in love with their designs and I really think that y’all will too!
This is the exact book I ended up ordering and I CAN’T wait for it to come in!
They have so many adorable prints and color options and I loved the layout inside the books.



You can head straight to their website {HERE} to see all of the adorable options, It was seriously SO hard to pick just one!
(FYI this is not sponsored in any way, I’m just obsessed with their books!!!)

Just in case some of you were looking for something a littleeeeeee bit different,
I’m going to go ahead and share some of the other baby book suggestions I got!

1. Lucy Darling Shop


2. MixBook

3. Promptly Journal


4. Qeepsake
{This one is actually an app and you save memories on your phone & can create a book later}

5. Shutterfly


Let me know if you end up grabbing one of these!
Each of these shops really does have GREAT options, you really can’t go wrong with any of them!
I’m off to my 35 week appointment this morning,
Have a happy Tuesday everyone!

I remember before I got pregnant I would daydream of precious moments like this…
So I’m currently soaking up every minute while I can.

It’s official, we are nearing the home stretch!!
I’m just a few days away from being 35 weeks and I am the type that likes to be totally prepared.
I’ve been wanting to get this post up for y’all for a while now but I also wanted to make sure it was REALLY helpful and informative.

It took me so long to figure out what on earth to pack for myself.
This is my first baby and I really have no idea what to expect!
I reached out to a few friends of mine who recently had babies and also did a whole lot of
research and came across some great lists!

Honestly all of the lists/info was a little overwhelming and every list has something different!
So I’ve somewhat been putting this off…

Well, I finally just sat down last weekend and made a packing list for:
1. Myself
2. My Husband
3. and BABY!!

I’ll share each of our lists and include direct links to the items if possible!

WHAT’S IN MY HOSPITAL BAG!

Have these accessible in an outside pocket:
1. Chapstick/Gum (apparently your mouth gets super dry during labor)
2. Hair tie (you are not going to want your hair all up in your face during labor)
3. Phone Charger
Clothing for me: (linking each item in order below this list, just scroll through to see all items)
1.
Robe (this is the exact one that I’m bringing but I linked a cute one below as well)
2. Slippers// Flip flops for shower
3. Nursing bra/ Top/ Pads/ Silverette Cups
4. Sweatpants/Stretchy leggings
5. Sweater/Cardigan
6. Warm socks
7. Going home outfit — (I may just end up wearing my sweats but…)  I’m thinking of packing some stretchy comfy jeans, a casual top that works for nursing & my converse or some type of comfy shoe!

Toiletries for me:
1.
Makeup – I know myself, and know that there will be lots of photos being taken & I’ll want to look somewhat put together once he’s here!
2. Make up remover wipes
3. Hair Brush/ Hair Clip
4. Toothbrush/ Toothpaste/ Deodorant
5. Shower Essentials/ Lotion/ your own towel
6. Granny Panties/Pads/Depends Diapers — Y’all my diapers came in yesterday and I’m honestly PUMPED.
7. Glasses
8. ***BRING YOUR OWN PILLOW***
9. Nursing pillow/Boppy
10. Breast pump/accessories (so they can teach you how to use it)
***EDIT***
Your hospital will most likely have a pump for you to use and apparently they’re better and                                                           stronger than the pump you’ll have at home! But DO bring yourself some nipple cream!!

Extras:
1. 
Camera – for better quality photos
2. SNACKS – this was on EVERY single list.
3. Baby book

WHAT’S IN MY HUSBANDS HOSPITAL BAG:

1. SNACKS – labor & delivery typically lasts a LONG time and your man is going to get hungry
2. Toiletries
3. Change of clothes
4. Pillow/Blanket
5. Flip flops for shower

WHAT’S IN HAYES’S HOSPITAL BAG:
(Some hospitals provide you with a TON of things so you really may not need all of this stuff, but if you’re overly cautious and like to be overly prepared then you can follow my list!)

1. Car seat – obviously not actually in the bag…
2. Light blanket for car seat
3. Swaddling blankets
4. Hats/Mittens
5. Burp cloths
6. NB-3 month sleepers and onesies

I have ALWAYS been obsessed with taking photos, making memories and having a photo to look back on has always been incredibly special and important to me.
I have been dying to create a “gallery wall” in our home but keep putting it off because the nursery has been priority lately!
