Hey, Baby!


No big deal.  Just looks like I swallowed a watermelon but no big deal, nothing weird looking here.  I've said it before and I'll say it again, I feel so much bigger carrying baby girl.  Getting dressed for work is getting more and more interesting but I just have to chuckle since it looks like I'm smuggling a basketball into the office!

The Green Bag


I'm a bag lady, a proud bag lady.  Always have been, always will be.  My obsession with bags started when I was very young.  I vividly remember being in elementary school and falling in love with my grandmother's Chanel bag.  I had no idea what brands meant just that I thought her bag was really really pretty and I wanted one.  My dream of owning a Chanel finally came true when I bought my Large Flap bag in Paris while on my honeymoon but my love of bags is a forever thing.  Since beginning my career and becoming a mommy, all of my handbag purchases have been with the thought of whether this or that bag would make a great diaper bag or work bag.  I have not made any "fun" bag purchases in forever.  Until now.  When I saw this Rebecca Minkoff Regan bag (NOW ON SALE!!!!!!!!) in the teal color, 'twas love.  I REALLY wanted it.  I promised myself awhile back that I would not buy anything unless it was needed or I REALLY wanted it and I REALLY wanted this bag.  My husband sweetly gifted me the bag for Mother's Day and I couldn't wait to use!  I took it with us to Nashville and amazingly, it doubled as the perfect toddler bag.  I no longer have to bring an entire nursery with me on the go, so I carried essentials with me along with Lucas' tablet, a few toys, snacks, and sippy cup.  I seriously love this bag and the color is gorgeous!  I think the color is called Sea Green but it's more teal/turquoise in real life.  If you are looking for a fun yet functional bag, I highly recommend this one!

Weekend Party

These aren't the best photos but they were quickly snapped using my Iphone before I headed out to a good friend's baby shower a couple weekends ago.  She and I have been friends since we were 6 years old and now we both have the exact due date!  I was so excited to celebrate her baby shower.  I usually do not dress up on the weekends so it was nice to get out of my leisure pants and attempt to look presentable.

Life Lately: Little Sister's Nashville Wedding

Long time no see!  It's been quite a few weeks and I'll try to catch up as I start blogging regularly again.  Throughout the past couple weeks, I've been on and off bed rest due to ongoing Braxton Hicks contractions.  I'm still working full-time, so I've been balancing taking care of my body, working, Lucas, life, etc. so unfortunately, blogging went to the bottom of the totem pole.  We also just got back from Nashville for my sister's wedding which are the photos I'm sharing below.

My sister got married at the Nashville Symphony which was an absolutely beautiful venue!  I was maid of honor and little Lucas was a ring bearer.  His bow tie, suspenders, and Chucks outfit was too too cute!  Shockingly, not only did Lucas walk down the aisle but he was the perfect angel throughout the ceremony and sat quietly on my sister, Ana's lap.  I didn't want to jinx it so I tried not to make eye contact with him!

We had such a great time spending time with family and celebrating Melisa and Jeremy.  It was also special to spend Mother's Day in Nashville with all of my family.

Lucas sitting quietly as the girls got their hair and makeup done.  Can you tell that I emphasize when he's quiet?  He's definitely a firecracker!

I mean...I mean...


 Lucas was in heaven with his Aunties!

Mom, sisters, and I

FYI Finding a maid of honor dress to wear at 7 months pregnant was no easy task but I went with this similar J.Crew dress and had it altered like no other.

The happy married couple.


This was such a sweet gift from my sister!  She and I love this Burberry perfume and she had it engraved which makes it extra special :-)
