We are prepping our closets for our 4th of July festivities! Since having a daughter dressing in red, white, and blue has been a highlight of the 4th of July! I found this dress at Chicwish and instantly fell in love with the ruffles and that it is off the shoulder. I wear this dress on repeat because of the fit. Currently I am all about off the shoulder <3 As I shopped around on Chicwish  I couldn’t help myself but fall in love with this and this as well <3 Continue reading “Off the Shoulder Ruffle Love”

Second Trimester Update

mommy kissesbaby girl kisses

So now that I hit my third trimester on Saturday I will update y’all on my second trimester! EEk I should be updating better but this pregnancy is just speeding by! I lost track of how many weeks I was and I actually lost a week! This pregnancy has been an average pregnancy for the most part. I had my first midwife appointment on June 8th and baby girl was measuring 25 weeks which I was 25 weeks and 5 days so she is right on track! I am experiencing all the pregnancy norms despite what my pictures show! I am getting those spider veins on my legs, cellulite, and my belly button has popped out around 16 weeks of pregnancy. So now my belly button is like a little tunnel! I also have gained about 15lbs in this trimester and my sciatic nerve still acts up if I have been on my feet longer than usual or if I sit too much 😉 Continue reading “Second Trimester Update”

We are so excited these are the first days of summer! Hot weather, sunshine, and splashing in the pool! Doesn’t get any better than this <3 Harlo’s swim diapers are the cutest! We absolutely LOVE the Honest Company they have really grown as a company since when we started ordering from them! They have so many great chemical free products that fit our chemical free lifestyle:) Our inflatable pool we purchased at Walmart for $13 and it has seriously been the best $13 we have spent in a long time 🙂 Continue reading “First Days of Summer”

This weekend we celebrated in pinks, frills, ruffles, and lots of love. Saturday was my sister’s baby shower and it was a beautiful day to celebrate a new life coming into this world! My sister absolutely glowed and is very thankful for all who came out to celebrate with her. Being pregnant with my sister has been a true blessing! I am sure when we were little we planned to have kids together but now that we are older and pregnant at the same time I think it is funny that it wasn’t planned 🙂

daddy daughter timedaddy daughter kisseshigh five daddyFather’s Day is just around the corner and it has come so fast. We have just had baby on the brain lately! I have the hardest time picking out gifts for the men in my life. Who else has that problem? There are lots of ‘manly’ gifts out there but my hubby never tells me things or hints around at things like I do. My dad is also a super hard one to buy for. I like to put it like I want to get everyone the BEST gift and then it turns into a last minute gift 😉 Well this year I asked Nick to pick out his fashion favorites and some other random gift ideas because my mommy brain is on overload! He doesn’t know fashion all that well so I helped a little 😉 The majority of the time my hubby loves getting gifted tools. Most of the picks if you order by 3pm June 10th (today) your gift will arrive by Father’s Day! Continue reading “Father’s Day Picks”

Over the Weekend

grocery girlAnother weekend has come and gone. We started our Saturday morning with a trip to the grocery store! We most often shop at our local Woodman’s it has the largest variety of organic foods for our family at a good deal. This week Harlo wanted to take her baby to the store so they both sat in the cart. I see these loving moments of Harlo with her ‘baby’ and it just makes my heart so happy because she is going to be one fabulous BIG sister. Umm, yes my cart is over flowing with groceries 😉 we shop weekly and get that much! Big eaters what can I say! Continue reading “Over the Weekend”

Give Some Love to the Preggo Belly

Bear your belly all my preggo mama’s! I love to watch my little girl grow and yes that ultimately means my belly is stretching giving me those stretch marks and a poppin’ belly button at 24 weeks that sticks out no matter what I wear! On the flipside, I have to embrace the changes because God created me and this new little girl just for me to carry. Us women are capable of making miracles! Especially grateful that I have the ability to carry a child when there are so many women have fertility issues. So the stretch marks just come with the territory of making miracles. However, I have a cream that helps the uncomfortable stretching skin and helps to reduce the visibility of stretch marks! Continue reading “Give Some Love to the Preggo Belly”
