The Lazy Girls Maternity Guide


I've pretty much spent my entire pregnancy thus far in long shirts/tunics and maternity pants.  I think I've mentioned a trillion times how sick I was at the beginning and now, although the nausea is gone (thank god!), I'm now so tired and having braxton hicks contractions.  Thankfully, baby girl is doing great which is all I care about.  Since I'm still working full time, I'm still trying to look put together and this pretty much my go to uniform which I don't mind because they are items that I either wore or can wear post-pregnancy.  My hair and makeup are a different story - keepin' it real around here...

The White Pants


This here is a first for me...white pants.  White pants while pregnant no less.  I can't lie, throughout the entire day, I would examine my pants to see if I smeared ink...or cheetos...but, thankfully, these survived an entire day at the office.  And I have to say, I'm a fan!  I practically live in blank or dark gray work pants so this was a nice departure.  Maybe I'll even brave some white jeans #goals

The Perfect White Top


I bought this top before I was pregnant and so happy that it is one that will grow with me.  My tummy has popped A LOT A LOT A LOT more than when I was pregnant with Lucas at this point in the pregnancy.  I feel and look like I'm much further along than I am.  I'm happy that I can still wear the clothes that I love while having a big preggo belly.  I know these days are numbered...

Struggling



For most of this pregnancy, I haven't worn any maternity tops and have been living in tunics.  Clearly, this poor chambray top is struggling to stay buttoned!  Luckily, no buttons were harmed in the making of this post.

Weekend Photo Diary

We had a busy weekend that started out with our first Easter Egg hunt of the year.  Lucas is a pro and takes it VERY seriously.  Our friends throw a great Easter Egg hunt every year and it's always a fun time.  Check out the determination below!


On Sunday, we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom and my mom joined us as well.  Lucas is really into Lion King/Guard, Tarzan, and Finding Nemo so we knew he would love this park as well.  He so loved the Festival of the Lion King show and walking the trails to spy on some gorillas and zebras.  I absolutely love experiencing Disney through him.



Yeah, I just really don't enjoy shopping for my little girl...not one bit...Ok, I'm obsessed.  Even my mom told me to slow my roll.  It's just so hard when everything is too darn cute.  This sleeper below has to be one of my favorites because it's a "Central Park" graphic sleeper.  Central Park holds a special place in my heart as it's where my husband proposed to me.


These two cuties are from Carter's and I just could not pass up jelly sandals!

And holy cow does Target's Oh Joy and Pillowfort collections have me like whoa!

Maternity Work Wear



As much as I'd like to wear leggings and a baggy t-shirt all day every day, this pesky thing called going to work at an office gets in my way.  I was so sick during the first couple of months with this babe that I literally just wanted to stay in bed all day in my comfy clothes.  Now that I'm feeling more like myself, it does make a big difference to put some makeup and a dress on in the mornings.  Plus, if I get told one more time that I don't look well (which has happened one too many times lately) I might just go buck-wild.

UncommonGoods

If you have been reading here long enough, you would know how much I love accessories.  More than that, I love discovering new companies with unique accessories and gifts.  Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, UncommonGoods was founded in 1999 and is a privately owned retailer that focuses on unique jewelry, d├ęcor, and handcrafted gifts.  Most of the products sold at Uncommon Goods comes from the USA and incorporates recycled materials.  Amazingly, as an independently owned business, UncommonGoods will donate $1 to the non-profit of your choice and since starting the Better to Give Program twelve years ago, UncommonGoods has already donated over one million dollars to charities around the world!  On top of having a great business core, I mean, look at how beautiful some of my favorite pieces are below:


I am loving stone jewelry lately and love the details and colors of these pieces.  You can see other great necklace options here.  Since finding out that I am expecting a baby girl this summer, the Dear Daughter necklace tugged at my heartstrings.  If you are interested in unique jewelry, you should definitely browse here and I love that you can find out more of the artist that created the jewelry. 



How beautiful is that jewelry tree! and agate coasters?!  And I am all about pineapples everywhere so that mug is too cute to pass up!

I hope you all check out UncommonGoods and come back to tell me what you purchased or what pieces you liked!  Mother's Day is right around the corner and I think the gifts found here are all great gifts.

{Magical} Weekend Photo Diary


It was another magical weekend at Disney World as we spent Saturday back at the Magic Kingdom.  We are very lucky to live not too far from the parks and we enjoy every visit to see our friends Mickey, Donald, and Goofy.  We decided that since Lucas is tall enough to ride the kiddie Goofy roller coaster that he would go on the ride with his daddy.  Sadly, I missed out on his first roller coaster ride since I'm pregnant but I got to take video from below.  As tame as the ride may be since it's meant for children, Lucas was lukewarm about the ride.  The rest of the day, he would remind us that the "choo choo train" made him sad.  He breaks my heart and melts it all at the same time.  Other than that, he had a great time meeting the characters and going on the truly kiddie rides.  What made this trip really exciting is that Lucas had been asking us to take him back to Disney and whenever he'd get in the car with both me and my husband, he'd assume we were going to Disney.  I love that he realizes where he is and tells us that he's having a good time.


Lucas even helped pick up some toys for his baby sister and insisted on an "Anna" doll versus Elsa.


On Sunday, I tried my hand at a little DIY project as the nursery is still a work in progress.  In fact, the room is basically a storage/guest/computer room at the moment...


Before having children, I was that super obnoxious and judgmental person who would see a screaming child in public and think, I would never let my child behave that way.  Well, I'm getting back and then some for all the times I judged when I should have minded my own business.  Yep, I was this mom at Target...letting my child lay down under the cart in order to prevent the 1,450,649,675 meltdown of the day...

Getting the Nursery Ready

Slowly but surely baby girl's nursery will be coming together.  As I said in the last post, at this point in my pregnancy with Lucas, his nursery was basically complete.  I must have been insane.  With Baby #2, I will be using Lucas' crib and just a few pieces of furniture.  I'm not going to really go with a theme for her room but just maybe try to keep a neutral and sweet color scheme.  I stopped by Hobby Lobby, Homegoods, and placed a Target order recently and here are the things I picked up:


I love pink and mint together so I couldn't resist those crib sheets.  And anyone who knows me knows I'm obsessed with collecting ginger jars so the bunny above from Hobby Lobby was a must.  The basket was a Homegoods find.

I love love these prints from Hobby Lobby!  Hobby Lobby was also having a 50% their art and framing this weekend so these were super cheap.  The Paris print is from Etsy.  I'm thinking I may do a gallery wall above her dresser and include the unicorn pictured below.


I was ready and set to buy the faux fur stool from World Market that's around $78.  As I was browsing Hobby Lobby, I spotted the stool above that is almost an exact of the World Market stool except I bought mine for a little over $25 since I used a 40% off promo!  Winning!


So Target completely nailed it with the new Pillowfort collection!  There were so many things I loved and still would like to get.  For Baby Girl, I bought the Unicorn head pictured above.  I'm thinking it will be part of the gallery wall to go above her dresser that I have yet to find.  For my Mr. Lucas, I bought the pillowcase and fox pillow below to go in his big boy bed.  I think he'll get a kick out of the fox pillow!
