Monthly subscription boxes are seriously ALL the rage right now!
and I am SO DANG EXCITED to share this with all of you…
that there is now a pregnancy “bump box” available!!!

Is this not the most genius idea ever?!

I can’t think of a better or more exciting time in life to receive a monthly box of goodies
all catered towards your growing bump!

 

Each box is tailored towards your due date which is probably my favorite part!
I just turned 19 weeks this past Sunday and have been on the hunt for some kind of
lotion to help prevent me from getting stretch marks!
I was SO pumped to see that my box had a product in it for JUST that.
I used my bath bomb right away,
my lower back and feet were aching like crazy after a day full of errands
and a warm bath with essential oils was exactly what I needed!

Oh, and you better believe i’m throwing our sonogram picture of baby boy in that frame ASAP.

Whether you’re a pregnant or new mama, this box is a MUST.
It also makes a perfect gift!!

Let me know if you end up subscribing or trying them out!!
Happy Tuesday Babes!

 


I had full intentions on doing a fun fitness post for y’all today.
But I’m all about being real here on this blog of mine,
so that’s JUST what i’m going to do, let the realness come out!

It has been HARD to work out consistently during this pregnancy y’all,
Now that i’m in my second trimester I definitely have some energy back.
But for some reason working out just isn’t where my focus is at.
{probably because all I want to do is buy a million baby outfits & decorate a nursery}
Now don’t get me wrong, I do get a small work out in every now and then.
But it just hasn’t been as consistent as I would like it to be.
And I would definitely feel guilty if I sat here and wrote up a post about
these amazing maternity support leggings and told you how great they are for working out,
when in reality I’ve been wearing them to eat Mac & Cheese and an entire tube of crescent rolls
all while laying on my couch.
Which in all honesty, that feels like a work out in itself because I somehow seem to
get out of breath while eating these days.
{it’s really not a pretty sight}

BUT I’ve brought you all here today to say that I am going to get my life together.
I went to Target yesterday…and made the BIG mistake of going into their dressing rooms.
Good God it was NOT a pretty sight.
Now if you’ve never been into a Target dressing room, they literally have mirrors on
every single wall, that will show you every single angle of your body.
And it is NOT good.
I remember when I was in shape and in college and STILL not liking to go in there….
Needless to say, yes Target mirrors just SUCK.
But, it was an eye opening experience for me….

Kyle’s brother and his fiancé moved like not even 5 minutes away from us
a couple months ago,
so I was all like “hell ya, a workout partner!!”
Her and I went and got a gym membership at a cutie little gym in the neighborhood
like over a month ago…
Literally haven’t gone back since.
WHOOPS.
I’m just so not a gym person at all…
The whole…people looking at me…me not knowing how machines work…me walking around aimlessly…people grunting in the corner and making me uncomfortable…
It’s just not for me okay!!!

So a lightbulb went off in my head…
This same exact thing happened to me years ago and I came across the best
at home work out program ever and it literally transformed my body and my health.
I’m pregnant, and growing, so i’m not exactly looking for a transformation BUT
I’m definitely going to go back to those videos that I used to do every single day.
I’ll just modify the moves so they work for me and the little babe.

I’ll let y’all know how it goes!
pray for me, cross your fingers, do whatever you do…
I gotta get some lift to this ass of mine STAT.

Alright enough rambling for today.
Happy Monday!

Once all of the wedding festivities were over

 and the happy couple was off to their honeymoon,

we decided to make the last day a vacation day.

Which means, BOAT DAY!

Unfortunately this suit is completely sold out everywhere, 

but i’ll link some other cute options for y’all below!

here, here, here, and here

It was the perfect relaxing ending to our busy weekend.

That evening us girls went to a Spazmatics concert and 

H O L Y C R A P

it was freaking amazing!

If you don’t know who they are (I didn’t before the concert) They’re a band

that plays/performs 80’s music.

They were such good performers and we all seriously had the best time ever.

But now it’s back to reality…

I have my 10 year high school reunion this Saturday.

(wait when did I get so old)

So that should be interesting, i’m sure there will be plenty of alcohol involved.

Happy Thursday!

Happy Friday!

This past weekend I got to celebrate my amazing sister in law, Michelle.
I got to spend the weekend with such an incredible group of girls
and we had SO much fun drinking wine and telling stories and just laughing our butts off.

We arrived in canyon lake Friday night and had a relaxing night in,

I got the chance to meet a lot of Michelles’ close friends for the first time.

They are all SO sweet, 

we spent Friday night drinking margs and catching up/getting to know each other.

Saturday was spent frolicking around the Hill Country drinking lots and lots of wine.

I wore this adorable romper with these Steve Madden wedges that i’ve literally been 

eyeing for what seems like FOREVER now. 

SO glad I caved and purchased them.

I don’t think the weather could’ve been any better the entire weekend,
[Shout out to Jesus] After the wineries we headed back to the house to relax before our dinner reservations.

The weekend went by WAY too fast, as it always does.
But of course i’m happy to be back home.
Hope all of you had an easy breezy week and enjoy your weekend!

First off, apologies for the blurry pics.

I’ve been having some issues with my camera the last few days 🙁

I can’t tell y’all how excited I am that “slip dresses” are in.

They’re comfy, beautiful and effortless and I am so in love with this trend right now.

I wore this little number to one of my best friends weddings this past Friday.

Everything about the wedding was stunning, Mary Beth looked absolutely breathtaking 

and I couldn’t be happier for her and Mike! 

Unfortunately I didn’t get a picture with the bride [major regrets] but I did get to 

dance the night away with her and help her celebrate her new role as “wife”.

Hope y’alls Monday is a good one!
