Hoppy Spring


Hoppy Spring...that's hoppy because Easter is this weekend.  Get it?  Okay, thanks!  (Note: I've never claimed to be clever.)

This week flew by!  I'm hoping for life to slow down a little so I can enjoy this moment in my life.  No complaints coming here, just blissfully hoping that Mondays turn into an extra weekend day!

Office Bump


The days here are getting nicer but, unfortunately, the combination of pollen and just sickiness has me feeling gloom.  Luckily, I'm able to work from home at times but I'm one of those weirdos that actually prefers to get work done at the office.  I'm trying to rest up though because it is so nice out and I'd like to do as much as I can now before the baby comes.  I find myself opening the door to the nursery and spending a couple minutes in his room wondering what it will be like when Lucas is here ;-)

Oh and a big thank you to those of you that helped me figure out how to block out spammers.

Welcoming Spring


It was a gloomy and rainy weekend but I'm ready to welcome the breezy, sunny Spring weather.  I'm not sure how "Springy" my wardrobe will be this season because I'm not buying much of anything these days and my old clothes no longer fit.  I did break my shopping ban on Thursday by purchasing the sandals I'm wearing in these pictures at Target.

Since I only do my pregnancy updates once a month, I didn't want to forget that on Friday I started feeling distinct kicks!  Since then, he's been kicking up a storm.  I don't mind because I think it's adorable and I love that my husband can now feel the baby kick.  If you follow me on instagram, you probably already saw that I did some more damage baby clothes shopping for Lucas on Saturday.  Every one tells me to not buy too much because babies grow so quickly, but it's so hard not to!

On an annoying note, I don't use word verification on my comments because they can be annoying; however, the other day I received 20 "Anonymous" spammer comments within the span of 5 minutes.  Does anyone know of another way to block out these spammers without word verification?

So Many Questions


I've become one of those obnoxious women that sees people with babies and runs up to them so I can ask a million and one questions.  Seriously.  If you have a baby and I'm in your vicinity, run away from me because I will talk your ear off.  I've been welcoming all advice, good and bad, because I'm new to this mom thing.  I also seriously pray that being a new mom will just come naturally to me but, in the meantime, I think I'll pester those around me.

On a totally unrelated note, do navy and black go together?  How's that for a topic change!

21 Weeks Preggo Update



We went to our 20 week appointment last week and it was such an amazing day.  The ultrasound we had checked for the baby's weight, size, checking for any problems, etc.  Since we already knew our baby is a boy, my main concern was that he was okay.  Thankfully, our baby boy is doing great!  He is on the larger side so I was told my due date may be a week earlier which would put me at 22 1/2 weeks today.  I'm not surprised he's a big baby since I was born at 11 pounds.  That's right people, 11 flipping pounds!  My grandfather said I came out ready to start kindergarten :-)

The best moment of the ultrasound was when we saw him "eating."  It was so cute to see his little mouth moving and see him stretching his arms. In fact, he was moving so much that the tech was chasing him around with the wand and I had to then move on my sides to see if he would settle down.  The tech asked me what I ate for breakfast because she usually has to give women something sugary to drink to get the baby moving but not me!  I was too embarrassed to tell her what I really ate for breakfast...a piece of flan...I mean what else would you expect me to eat for breakfast?  I was an 11 pound baby after all.

Weight Gain?:  I've gained a total of 5 pounds thus far.  I'm positive I've gained 5 more pounds since last week or else I'm extremely bloated/swollen (TMI).

Maternity Clothes?:  Maternity skirts, pants, and dresses are my saviors.

Symptoms?:  HEARTBURN and ACID REFLUX!!!  I broke down and got a prescription because it was keeping me up all night and making it difficult to function during the day.  I'm also getting really swollen at the end of the day.

Sleep?:  Same as other weeks so I copy pasted:  "Yes and no.  I sleep in spurts of 2 hours here or 3 hours there.  My husband bought me a Snoogle but he seems to use it more than me."

Do I miss anything?:  Not really.

Movement?:  Lots of fluttering and moving from this little guy but I can't wait to feel a real kick!

Anything making you sick or queasy?:  I still can't stand air fresheners.

Food cravings?:  Japanese food, olives, and brownies.

Have you started to show?:  Oh yes.

Boy or a Girl?:  Baby BOY Lucas

Best Moment This Week?:  Seeing my little man "eating" and stretching on the ultrasound :-)

Diva Confessions


Random thought of the the day:  Fashion Night on Bravo is becoming my favorite night of the week (besides Friday).  I mean Rachel Zoe Project,  Brad Brad World, then Dukes of Melrose...fashion television heaven.  In my next life I want to be a stylist or fashion designer.

I've received a couple comments and questions on how I can still be wearing heels pregnant but I have a couple diva confessions.  Firstly and grossly, I take my shoes off at the office.  I know that's nasty but I don't walk around barefoot and I sit in my chair 95% of the time.  Second, and here comes the diva confession, I'm pretty lazy when it comes to moving around so most the time, people come to me at the office versus me walking around.  So in my defense, I'm not so much a diva and more just plain lazy...don't judge me too harshly.

Casual Stripes

 Jacket: Forever 21  /  Dress: Old Navy  /  Shoes: Tory Burch  /  Handbag: Louis Vuitton

I loved this outfit on Franziska of Franish so I decided to recreate it preggo style.  In December, I purchased a bunch of maternity clothes (before my shopping ban) and since I had no clue on sizing, I ended up purchasing items that are currently too big on me--like this dress.  It was only $4.00 though so I'm not too upset and I know I will eventually grow into it.  I probably should have tried things on in the store but (a) doing anything productive during my first trimester was a bust and (b) I'm lazy.

This weekend, my husband and I accomplished so much for our little Lucas.  On Saturday, we (and by we I mean my husband) pretty much finished the entire nursery with just a few things missing.  On Sunday, we took a day trip to Tampa to visit my sister, Melisa.  Not only did she and my mom buy more cute clothes for Lucas but Melisa surprised us with a bag FULL of more goodies.  Pictures of Lucas' loot are on my instagram.  Lucas will definitely be one spoiled little boy :-)  I hope it was a good weekend for all!
