We survived Monday y’all, but it kind of feels like it should be Thursday already…
These weeks either completely fly by, or seem to last forever!

Fun Fact:
 I used this shirt to announce our pregnancy to Kyle’s grandparents!
Another fun fact: They didn’t notice it all night and I ended up having to point it out. HA!
I’m not lying when I say that I wear this shirt multiple times a week,
not only is it perfect for announcing your pregnancy, it’s also the perfect comfy & cute tee
when you want to just “throw something on”.
The price is pretty great too – have no fear I’ve linked my entire outfit for y’all below the photos!
This cardigan has been my “go to” outerwear lately, and I’m like REAL close to ordering it
in more colors! The best part? It’s under $30!!
These white jeans have been my fav for years now but they’re no longer available,
but I linked some other super cute white jean options for y’all!

Kyle and I finally ordered a crib and this whole baby thing is all becoming so much more real!
We spent a good amount of time this weekend painting it (non toxic/extra safe paint of course)
and I can’t wait to get it set up in the nursery and show y’all!
Most of our nursery items are on our registry so we’ll have to wait a little while to start decorating.
BUT I have ordered the crib and changing table/dresser so I’ll definitely be giving y’all
a little sneak peek during the “setting up” process.
If you didn’t get a chance to watch my Insta stories yesterday I asked for some book suggestions for
pregnancy/new mamas! Some of you responded with your fav books and a TON of you
responded asking me to do a post on all of the suggestions I received!
So if any of you reading this have book suggestions I can add to the list I would
love you forever!!

Have a great Tuesday y’all!!

Happy Monday Y’all!!
I have been DYNG to share this outfit with all of you.
If you follow me on Instagram you probably already saw the sneak peek that I posted yesterday!
I wore this outfit to one of my best friends 30th birthday outings on Saturday,
& I’m totally in love with everything about it.

Okay, let’s get down to business…
I scored this cropped sweater years ago but I linked a bunch of SUPER cute cropped
sweater options for y’all below! This fitted skirt is from ShopPinkBlush, and it’s
unbelievably soft and stretchy! Every item I’ve received from PinkBlush has seriously been so comfy!
The majority of my maternity clothing is from there, and I HIGHLY recommend ordering
from them if you haven’t already. They carry non maternity as well!

Anddddd, last but not least…THESE BOOTS THOUGH.
I received SO many messages when I posted these on Insta stories!
They are hands down the best OTK boots I have ever purchased,
and I can absolutely promise you that you WILL NOT regret ordering yourself a pair.
I wore them all night long and they do not fall whatsoever, and they are super comfortable.
My feet have been killing me since being pregnant and I am honestly SO shocked
to say that my feet felt great on Saturday night.
These boots were like totally/seriously/100% made for walkin’ y’all!
PS: Use code “INSTA14” for $30 off!!

Kyle’s cousin Krissa is one of my very best friends and she turns 30 this week!!
She’s going to be out of town this coming weekend so a bunch of us girls planned
a fun little girls night out for her to celebrate!
It was the first time I’ve actually been “out out” since being pregnant, and oh what an experience it was! haha. Can’t even begin to tell y’all the funny stares and judgmental looks that came my way.
At the end of the night I was standing outside waiting for Kyle to pick me up and
I even caught this girl taking a picture of me!! I noticed her and the group she was with pointing at us, I guess they’ve never seen a pregnant person out past 10pm before? *rolls eyes*
So awkward.
My sweet {and feisty} soon to be sister in law saw the girl do it and ran over and put her in her place.
Needless to say, this mama to be was a tad out of her element, and slightly uncomfortable.
BUT we had such a fun night and I would do it 100x over again for my babe Krissa!
Birthday girl and me are pictured below.



Is Thanksgiving next week already?!
I cannot believe it…time to start preparing and also get some Christmas shopping done!

I’m 23 weeks and 3 days pregnant…and I officially bent over this morning and peed a little.

I’ve got an appointment next week where they’ll be doing that whole glucose test thing
to check if I have gestational diabetes…at least I think that’s what they’re testing for!
Appointments just aren’t quite as fun when there’s not an ultrasound involved,
But i’m so thankful for a healthy pregnancy so far.
I know a lot of times people have to get ultrasounds regularly when something isn’t quite right,
so I’ll consider it a HUGE blessing!

Baby boy has been kicking up a storm lately and I’m not going to lie,
all I want to do is lay there and watch him move around in my tummy all day long…
It’s so fun being able to see his movements on the outside now!

I’ve got a question for all you mamas!
Did you go through a period of panic where you just felt like the nursery HAD to be done
RIGHT AWAY or else the world was going to end?
Because i’m totally going through that right now and I don’t know how to make it stop!
Part of me is like, “okay, chill – we’ve still got plenty of time!”
Then the other part of me is saying, “DO IT NOW. Anything can happen, be prepared for everything”
I originally had everything on our registry, including big nursery items.
But I finally convinced Kyle to let us order the crib last night,
it should be arriving early next week and I couldn’t be more excited about it!!
Also, feel totally relieved even though the baby won’t be sleeping in it at first?!
Gosh hormones are weird.

I think once the nursery is done it’ll feel even more real,
and that’s why i’m so anxious/excited to get started.

In case y’all haven’t noticed the hair on my head is growing at an alarming rate,
literally touches my ass…I’m getting a MUCH needed haircut today and I’m so pumped about it.
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of hair, I’m pretty positive my eyelashes are falling out?
Is that a pregnancy symptom? Someone help, putting on mascara has become a total nightmare.
Alright, that’s it for today…
Gotta clean the house, run some errands and then drive all the way across town to the only lady I trust to touch my hair!!

Happy Hump (or bump) Day!!

I typically hate taking my “outfit photos” in front of others,
but for some reason these guys behind me watching made me feel totally comfortable…
haha!
There’s nothing I love more than finding gorgeous pieces that I can wear during and
after pregnancy! This dress is totally not maternity, but looks adorable while pregnant!!
Cleo Madison has SO many cute items that can be worn during and after pregnancy,
and gosh pretty much every item looks ridiculously comfy.

If you’ve been on the hunt for modest clothing that’s still trendy, and super comfortable,
you’ve GOT to head over to CleoMadison!!
I’m going to link a few of my other fav dresses on their site for y’all below!
Here, here & here.

Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

A relaxing weekend was JUST what I needed after the week I had,
and I’m so happy to say that that’s JUST what I got!
Kyle and I went to this local {& adorable} little breakfast cafe with Kyle’s brother & sis in law
yesterday morning and I kind of want to go back every day for the rest of my life.
A little mad at myself for not taking photos of the actual cafe and the food,
but I did snap a pic while we were sitting outside waiting for the food (pictured below)

I’ve been dying to wear these camo pants lately but I haven’t tried them on since
being pregnant, GOOD NEWS, they still fit!!!!
The stretchy/adjustable waistband is perfect for growing bumps.

If you follow me on Instagram you saw on my stories how amazing the food looked.
Happy to say, it tasted just as incredible as it appeared!
After breakfast Kyle and I went back to the house to relax for an hour or two,
then hopped right back up to meet his Dad & stepmom for lunch!
Baby boy and I were very well fed yesterday.

Oh, totally off subject but totally serious question,
do any of y’all know of a safe self tanner while pregnant?!
I cannot handle being pale, it just does not look cute on me and I need HELP.
Send me an email or leave a comment if you have any suggestions!!!

Happy Monday!!
